Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

I let the boys pick our dinner. Therefore we dinned on Costco meatballs, oatmeal, and homemade breadsticks.

Sweet Boy#2–Was folding and putting his laundry away really fast so that he could play video games. He was running to the bedroom with a big pile of clothes, tripped, launched the clothes up in the air, and wacked his elbow on the door frame. Poor guy. But he did recover and get to play video games in the end.

The Boys got into an argument in the car. Two of them wanted oatmeal for dinner. Not just oatmeal. They wanted Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats that won the Golden Spurdle Award in Scotland for breakfast porridge. Therefore a very annoying chant began: “Golden Spurdle Oatmeal! Golden Spurdle Oatmeal!! Golden Spurdle Oatmeal!!!” Our youngest was not pleased with the chanting or the dinner selection. We had to stop the car and wait for everyone to settle down. Then we drove home and I made waffles.


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