Today was one of those wild and crazy days when you aren't sure if things are going to turn out, but they do! My son has spent the past few days working on a class project that he missed when he was absent. Well, he had it almost done yesterday morning and my 4 year old daughter was trying to take the crayons he was using. Well, I told her to leave him alone and let him do his homework. He eventually went up to get ready for school. Then, he came back down and the project was missing. We looked everywhere and he went to school without it. This morning, I did some thinking and searched through the garbage before I woke him up and I found it. It was a mess too. He spent the morning copying it onto a new piece of paper. I talked to my 4 year old later today and she admitted that she threw it in the garbage because she wanted to crayons. Yes, it was one of those days! :)

Children, don't you just love them. They will always keep you on your toes. So glad you found the homework and he was able to redo his work. It also shows that the younger sibling has reach a plateau where she will express her demands and react if not given attention. But somehow, out of the trials and spats, your love will bring everything together. You will be able to look back and laugh at their antics, but now you are definitely concerned. The positive aspect is that she readily acknowledged what she had done and why. Upon that you can build a common bond.

It is obvious that you have undergone a new-phase in designs. This metamorphosis is just awesome and I love the change. It is so wonderful to watch your growth in designing as you emerge into another design plane. Congratulations, I have mentioned this before in my comments and will watch the escalation with gladness and respect. Thanks for another wonderful template.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove box...an unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
