• The hug and the kiss at bedtime made up for the “I hate you mom”x3 earlier
• MUCH of my to-do list is stuff a normal person would have done when they moved in
• I am SO glad to see all that snow falling all over the eastern seaboard because it helps me feel smug that it is happening to them and not me, but I won’t be sad for it to end because they are so whiney about it
• If I find it on the floor this week, you will likely never see it again
• You know what happened this week? Pete started looking like a biggish kid to me—surprise!
• The perfect number of pieces for a toy is 1
• The great thing about having so much house work to do is that I can ignore some of it while simultaneously working on some other chore
• I actually said “No, you CAN’T wash the dishes” to one of my children when they were fighting over them
• My paper cut is killing me
• If you come within 5 feet of my kids, you will probably be tattled on—don’t worry—no matter what you’ve done, I’ll go easy on you

    I don’t believe that any of your sweet children would actually say “I hate you mom” You must be doing something right!

      You’re right, none of my sweet children would. But my stinker did.

    yes, toys with only one piece. I’ve stepped on 2 astronauts today from Jack’s “space set.”

    I am much regretting the legos for Christmas. (many pieces) And the How to train your dragon figures (many figures) Oh and the puzzle pieces that are scattered everywhere.
    I haven’t gotten an “I hate you” yet, but does “You’re stupid” count?

      I tossed SO MANY puzzle pieces this week–basically all the cardboard ones. And I have not yet braved legos–I know we’ll have fun with them someday, but they really hurt on barefeet.
