Random Stuff

#1 First of all, I would like to gripe with UPS. I really want that package to come. It contains clothes for me! Not my kids, me. Me, me, me. Get here already!

#2 I would like to share with you an overheard conversation between Thomas and Sarah Grace from the bathtub last night.

*splish, splash, giggle, splatter, splash, splash, giggle, splat, giggle, splash, splish, giggle*

Sarah Grace: You are splashing, Domas.

Thomas: Yes. I am splashing. Cry, Sarah. You don't like it.

Sarah Grace: (who had been giggling) Waaaaahhhhhhh-aaaaahhh! Wuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!

Thomas: Now, stop.

Sarah Grace: *Silence*

Thomas: Cry again, Sarah.

Sarah Grace: Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Aaaaaaaa-uh-ahhhhhhhhhh-uh-ahhhhhhhhhh!

And so goes the scene. Now, I must give you more info so that you can fully understand the chagrin felt by myself and Joshua. Just minutes before all of this, Thomas had been verbally corrected for splashing water at Sarah Grace's face. Not liking water in her face, she had wailed about the injustice, causing Joshua to respond and reprimand Thomas. But now, from the next room as I was finally making the kids beds, I hear this carefully planned out fussing. Now, what do you do what that?

#3 My son looked me in the eye today after I had told him not to do something and said "Don't tell me what to do." Let the good times roll, friends. His little attitude has become more challenging. He is learning to put words to his disobedience, which somehow makes me perceive it as worse. Intentional rather than, well, just learning the rules of the game, know what I mean? Suffice it to say, we are in a new chapter of parenting.

#4 I have made up two recipes in the last two days. Neither one really made up as in super special original, but more importantly, neither one read off of a recipe sheet. I don't make food ideas up on the fly. This is an accomplishment for me folks! I fudge around on the measurements sometimes, but I ALWAYS have a recipe card in front of me. New territory, lemme tell ya. And, AND, both meals were good! Ha! Pat my back.

Okay, done gloating. For now. ;)

#5 Ready to sell the house. Any takers??

So do you intend to share these genius recipes of yours or are you just going to gloat? I know, I know, you're just going to gloat. Fine.
