Snippets


  • You know those days when things get done, the house isn't a wreck and the kids are learning? How come those don't happen more often?

  • I'm going to pretend the brown streaks on the bathroom wall are just mud as I scrub them away, okay?

  • I'm having a million homeschooling kids and their parents over on Saturday. It might thunderstorm. Eeek!

  • My son, breastfeeding advocate. Said five year old, "I'm pretending to be a newborn and I'm drinking out of a bottle because my mom doesn't nurse me." The eight year old looks up, "Don't play that. That's really sad."

When we were visiting in Maine last month, the six year old left some, ah, mud streaks on the bathroom wall, which I had noticed and then forgot in the rush of packing up. It was left to my mother and sister to rediscover and deal with them as they prepped the cottage for a new batch of renters coming in. I got a bit of a telephone wigging for that one.
The 6 y.o., when confronted with her crime, came clean (as it were), although in her defense she claimed that she couldn't find any t-p and had panicked.
The gel was made to write a letter of apology to her grandmother and aunt.
(Love the new sidebar pic, btw.)

I don't anything as funny as that last one, but the younger of the 2 children I nanny, will get frustrated with her older brother and give him time out. And he actually goes to timeout nicely and sits there. It was funny, but a clue that perhaps i need to change up the routine and remind them that I will take care of time out.

lalalala...pretending not to hear comments about brown streaks...lalalala
I, too, love the new sidebar picture. Something about the fringe makes you look very sophisticated (an important quality to have when dealing with brown streaks).
Praying the weather stays clear for you!
