My kids are COMPLETELY driving me bonkers right now. I just sent them to bed and told them: “You can stay up as long as you like as long as I never see you again.” Which is why this post that I’ve been planning is a little ironic:
Favorite things about my kids right now
Emma and Gabe:
waking up at 6:15 (even thought it’s summer time),
dressing in running clothes and going for brother-sister jogs.
saying, every time she falls down (or bonks her head, or bangs her elbow—
hello awkward growth spurt) without any questions from us: “I’m okay!!”
adding 3+4 (or any other combination) by bouncing his fingers against his chin.
See following picture.
besides being so much better (post to follow),
saying the supposedly polite word “Pease (please)” over and over and over again in an extremely loud and un-polite voice.
Ex: “pease, moob (move) Emma!”, “pease all done, Mom!”, “pease pone (phone), Dad!”
But, really, my Friday Favorite will be whichever kid stays far, far away from me until about 7:30 a.m. tomorrow morning. Just telling it like it is.
