Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Well, sweet boy #3 is becoming a neat freak despite the fact that he only says a few words. He spilled his drink of H2O in the hall and I went and got a rag to clean it up. He pointed out each wet spot “Uh uh uh!” and would not rest until I had scrubbed each minute speck of wetness.

We have a documentary called “Roaring Waters” which sweet boy #2 wanted to watch. But he ended up asking for “Wallowing Waters.”

Sweet boy #2 was snuggling my head and expressed the desire to cut my hair with a blender so that we could all be boys.

Sweet boy #2 was very sleepy and it was his turn to pick our afternoon movie. Sweet boy #1 theorized about the situation. “I think he will be just awake enough for the movie but not awake enough to hold the zapper.”

And the winner this week. We were watching “Our Solar System” and I made the horrible error of glancing briefly at a newsletter that I had received in the mail. In order to shift my attention  back to the film, sweet boy #1 shouted out in an excited and slightly desperate voice: “Mama! Mars is the 4th and last of the solid inner worlds!”


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

    I can’t figure out where the neatniks came from. They certainly didn’t get those genes from me. Must have been from Papa, just like where you got your nose! It is delightful to have such a variety of characteristics in our plethra of little people.

    I wonder what a hair cut from a blender would look like? Probably I’ve seen one at the mall :0)

    Love to you
