Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

We spend a whole day looking for our lost DVD player remote…after sleeping on it I wake up the next morning and discover it, hidden inside one of the boys school backpacks along with 2 pairs of jammy pants and some pretzels.

Sweet Boy#3–Poops out a green marble. Aparently one can swallow a marble in the bathtub(???) without any ill effects…good information to have I suppose.

Sweet Boy#2–Unearths his carefully sequestered valentines cookie that he decorated in class. He is awash in righteous anger when I sugest that we dispose of the 2 month old confection. Quickly he stuffs some brittle crumbs into his mouth to prove its edibility.

I spend Wednesday night puking and Thursday immobile on the couch due to either food poisoning or some wretched 24hr. flu bug. I miss the much anticipated volunteer appreciation lunch at the boys school. So sad!

Sweet Boy#2 invents a new game…”Spider Search” wherein he hides all of his plastic spiders around the house and we all try to find them before they find us. Those of you who really know me will understand why this was a big test of my mothering abilities.

But the winner this week…

During AWANA Sweet Boy#1 highsticks Sweet Boy#2 with a hockey stick. Sweet Boy#2 is brought to me crying and gushing blood from two cuts on his mouth. He sits through the entire TREK verse time on my lap with ice on his face while the Jr. High girls cease their flirting long enough to rush around mothering him. It was very sweet of them and seemed to help, he got better in time to go to the AWANA store at the end of the night.


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

    Hahahaha, the marble was classic. It was a button for us, thank goodness for rounded edges and iron stomachs!!
