Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

An unnamed boy gets creative in his wiping resulting in a very poopy potty. Of course he tried to clean up and thus the soap pump, sink, counter and faucet received a coating as well. Thank you Lord for Bleach and bleach based cleaning products and little boys who are learning how to scrub.

I saw a picture of boyhood the other day. Upon walking into the living room I saw Sweet Boy#3 sitting on the floor in his undies, engrossed in looking at the cover of a book the Hunky Hubby has been reading,, (there are superheroes and zombies on the front!) and picking his nose. Adorable and Disturbing and full of Adventure…Boys.

I was at my desk writing when 3 little boys crawled out of the bedroom Sunday morning. They were playing some sort of imaginary game and I soon discovered that I was sharing a house with A Baby (Sweet Boy#3), A Baby Bunny (Sweet Boy#1) and A Saltwater Crocodile (Sweet Boy#2).

The winner this week…

Once again words come out of my mouth that I find terribly disturbing when I pause to consider them. This week the sentence was this: “Get out of your clothes and get in the tub. And don’t disturb the snake!”–Yep, I came into the bathroom to find a newly captured Gardner snake slithering around with my two oldest boys in the tub. For some reason I felt the need to caution my youngest before he plunged in with them. Ah, life with boys is ever exciting.



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