Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

What adventures did we have this week?

Well. . . I walked into our bathroom and discovered that there were little dried droplets of muddy water all over the wall and the mirror and even the ceiling. As though someone had taken a sodden and soiled towel and whirred it around their head like a knight about to attack with a morning star mace. Had this occurred? I talked to the boys and Sweet Boy#2 explained that it was not a muddy towel but a sandy bit of clothing and he was only flinging it about and not whirring it at all. I was so proud of his honesty and even prouder after he spent some time wiping down the walls and mirror.

I caught Princess Leia chewing on my tea diffuser. She got tea leaves all over the carpet. I wonder if that accounts for how hyper she was that afternoon?

Princess Leia has started pacing and barking in the evenings. We finally figured out that around 8 or 9 O’clock she is ready for her frozen towel and bedtime. We wet a towel, wrap it in a trash bag, and freeze it for her. She has gotten quite attached and can’t go to bed without it. I think we’ve created a monster.

The Hunky Hubby checked on the puppy in the middle of the night and saw that someone had put her purse on her. No they didn’t just lay the old purse that we gave Leia to chew onto the sleeping dog’s back. That unknown person took the little backpack purse and put both straps around her front paws so that Leia was wearing her purse as she slept.

I cut Sweet Boy#3’s hair with Leia zipping around at my feet and barking at the hair and biting at the broom as I cleaned up. Makes hair care a bit more complicated.

Princess Leia scratched a hole in our bathroom wall.

Sweet Boy#3–Saw that Leia had a pointy stick jabbing straight into her mouth. He lunged forward and snatched the dangerous stick right out of her mouth. Then he put his hand on his little heart (just like his momma does) and said “Phew” once he knew that his puppy was all right.

Sweet Boy#2 broke his glasses 3 different times. We ordered a new pair but it takes several weeks for them to arrive. So he broke them once at Grandma Judy’s house. They were snapped in half at the nose. I super glued them together. Then at camp he broke the arm off one side. I used Gorilla glue, but too much of it. I accidentally smeared glue across the lens. Luckily my thumb didn’t stick. But Gorilla glue doesn’t come off with alcohol or acetate, you have to scrape it off. So then we scraped the glue off of his lens, leaving them scratched but usable. Then he broke them in half at the nose again. I proceeded to once again glue them together with Gorilla glue. I’m getting better at this and the glasses are holding. . . we’ll see how long.


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