Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Sweet Boy#2–Forgets to go in to the cafeteria for breakfast at school (plays outside instead), but is rescued by his teacher with some fishy crackers.

Sweet Boy#1 and Sweet Boy#2–Get into a marker fight on the school bus with a rowdy little boy from my oldest boy’s grade. Are banned from sitting together…again and Sweet Boy#1 tells the bus driver that he doesn’t know why he disobeys only when his brother is around.

I trip over a flashlight and fall onto the rocking chair footrest getting a huge bruise on my leg.

Sweet Boy#3–Pilfers The Hunky Hubby’s box of dental floss, takes it into bed, and chews up the entire glob of waxy-mint twine.

The Hunky Hubby–Zooms around the house vacuuming up all of the fruit flies after our ill-fated attempt at composting
Sweet Boy#1–Runs around the house madly catching moths and crainflys and rushing them to safety out the window before the Hunky Hubby can suck them into the vacuum.


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!

    Glad to see the mercy side of Boy #1 :0) I was wondering when the ax would fall and our 2 scholars wouldn’t be allowed to sit together. It is wonderful that they enjoy each other so much :0) Did #3 get a tummy ache from his snack of dental floss?

    Love to you.

  • Two things. One, if you intend to keep a compost container in the house we have an old plastic folgers coffee can that works wonders. It’s the red one with a black lid. I might even be able to procure one for you (I got mine from the teacher’s room at school) if you need it.
    Second. If you still have fruit flies around put about 1/4 inch of vinegar – preferably cider or red wine vinegar. Or wine works too if you have it. IN a small dish near where the majority of them tend to be. You should probably do this after your boys are in bed… 😉 And then in the morning you will find lots of them drowned and done!

  • A fly trap, sounds great. And less traumatic for our bug loving boys than sucking them up in the vacuum.
