Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

As is often the case, much occurredwithin our house this week that could be firmly placed beneath the “Harrowing” category. My china teapot lid was broken…again. Some new age art was created beneath our dining room table using the little known medium of the honeybear. My newly painted wall was colored on. Some chocolate soy milk was transferred to a new container. Some Hazelnut coffee creamer was drunk. And Sweet Boy#1 and Sweet Boy#2 came to actual physical blows over which of them would pray first at lunch.

But the clear winner this week…. It was quite early in the morning, seven something. And before making breakfast I decided to just peek at the new e-book releases on Barnes and Noble.com. I know, I know, all of you experienced mothers out there are shaking your heads and mumbling to yourselves: “What was she thinking, glancing away for even a moment is just begging for a leaking nuclear reactor or minor apocalypse of some kind.” Too true. Well I came back into the living room and discovered Sweet Boy #2 guarding a pile of something under the couch. It was a stack of computer keys…without their computer.

Yes indeed, Sweet Boy#3 and Sweet Boy#2 had meticulously removed every single computer key from my old laptop Dietrich. While he refuses to run Microsoft Word, he works great for playing “Age of Mythology” and what not for the Hunky Hubby. They even lost some pieces for us. Itsy Bitsy microscopic pieces that are vital for keyboard functioning. But Choco our summer program director, being a great fan of age of mythology, put every single working key back. Yeah Choco!  Ah life, so strange and still so lovely.


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