Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Sweet Boy#3–Can’t fall asleep with the night light on, but his brother’s can’t fall asleep with it off. And so he asks me to tie a sock over his eyes. I get one of the Hunky Hubby’s large wool socks and safety pin it around his head. Thus my little guy drops off to sleep immediately.

Sweet Boy#3–Has 12 straight days w/o an accident…then he has three accidents all in one day! The perils of potty training.

Sweet Boy#3–Argues emphatically for the right to carry both his bowl of cream of wheat and his glass of milk to the counter at the same time rather than seperately. I reluctantly grant him permission only to watch him spill the entire contents of his cream of wheat bowl down his chest… They never believe me.

I look out my kitchen window and see the boys happily riding their bikes on the sports court…only my youngest is riding his bike in nothing but a pair of undies!

The winner this week….

My lovely sister asked one of her boys to go and pee on a bush. Sweet Boy#3 was horrified to see that his cousin was peeing on the “bike bush”.

Sweet Boy#3–“That’s where we put out bikes, Grrrrr! Now I’m going to pee on you!”

And so my darling little boy dropped his pants and chased after his horrified and deeply insulted cousin in a fit of urinary fury. Fortunately my lovely sister intervened before the attack ensued. But it reminded me once again that I am indeed the mother of a pack of wild creatures.


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