Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Only the mother of boys gets accidentally whacked in the face with a boxing glove while she is trying to floss her youngest child.

Daddy–“Who put peppercorns on the floor?”
Sweet Boy#2–“Well, I just put them on Shamu…and they fell off.”

Sweet Boy#2–Dips the ring off of a diaper genie refill into the toilet and then sets it on his brother’s head.

The Boys–Fill an old butter container to the brim with water and set in on the couch as a watering trough for bats and Himalayan pika to slurp out of.

Sweet Boy#1–Dunks Sweet Boy#2’s new Teddy Bear into the dog water.

Sweet Boy#2 and #3–Draw spiders on their chests with ink pens. Sweet Boy#2 even draws some asteroids and asteroid trails on his arms going down to smash into the spider on his chest.

Sweet Boy#3–Goes potty…instead of washing in the sink he runs out and holds both hands in front of the dogs face. Shamu obediently licks them. “That’s how I wash my hands.”


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

  • Love the hand washing… isn’t that how we all wash our dishes too??? 😉

  • Grandma Judy

    Didn’t know that the boys had boxing gloves, what a good addition. As usual, you brought some smiles and laughs into my day which is already full of interesting challenges at 9:45am. But, I am not grumbling, just asking the LORD to help me know what to do and how to keep a cheerful attitude inside as well as outside. This is, of course, in response to God’s work in my heart after reading your Thursday post on the ‘Coffee Blog’.

    Love to you.

  • Sadly (I think) we do not have boxing gloves. Choco however does have boxing gloves which the boys can run downstairs and find in his house in 3 seconds flat. Love you Mom.

    And Krista…what a good idea about the dishes, I’ll have to run that by Scruff.
