Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Sweet Boy#1–Gets permission from HIS FATHER to melt paintballs and scorch bits of plant with a magnifying glass out in the hot sun, as long as he does in in the rocks and not in the bushes or on the lawn.

Hmmm…we read Tin Tin comic books. They are from the 1930’s and 40’s and are for adults but are pretty clean…except for Captain Haddock’s drinking problem. So, the boys were floating in lake Chelan in a rubber raft. I saw Sweet Boy#3 pretending to pour something onto the boat and the other boys cringing in imaginary horror as that something caught on fire and engulfed their craft in imaginary flames. “I’m Captain Haddock pouring whiskey on the boat!” He shouted in boyish glee. He also plans on naming his new chicken (soon to arrive by mail) Captain Haddock. Ah well, at least they themselves are not drinking. You laugh, but after hearing my husbands story about the 5 kids, the doghouse, and a broken off beer bottle…I am grateful.

The winner this week…

Sweet Boy#3–Learns how to make bracelets from his girl cousin. He spends over an hour tying knots and then proudly presents me with a friendship bracelet. I have worn it with pride ever since. So sweet!!!




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