Sam: “Mom… something really bad happened today.” Me: *bracing myself for the worst* Sam: “This girl from my preschool said she’d play with me at recess THEN SHE CHANGED HER MIND and said she wanted to play with just girls instead!!!!!!!!!!!!” Me: *lets silence hang for a few seconds* Me: “She’s allowed to change her […]
Best five words today: “Sara, I have all three.” Wear ’em out, dad.
Guys, I am loving this stage. The two big boys don’t have to be carted around, they can DO stuff now! On today’s grocery adventure, they carried the basket (I only needed a few items). To avoid fighting over who got to carry, they each carried part & had to communicate about the most efficient […]
The sun was not shining, It was too wet to play (baseball). So we sat in the house All that cold, cold wet day. *just kidding, no we didn’t* That would be a rookie mistake With three little boys. We will take them out To mitigate the noise.

Josh comes home today: “Look mom, we made gingersnaps in kindergarten!” “Also, we had hot chocolate and candy canes at lunch time!” Wow, kindergarten, it appears your kitchen is busier than mine.
