Of my brain, that is.
Does anyone else's hair fall a super weird way on one side and a nice way on the other, making it constantly look like you decided to only fix one side of your hair that day? Mine does, it's lamerson.
I have discovered that if I sit on the kitchen floor right next to the fridge I never have to move (unless someone screams from the bathroom), I can always placate them with a cheese stick or throw an apple at them or something- it's perfect. I may consider bringing in a pillow or investing in one of those bean bag chairs for this spot.
I could literally eat an entire 4 pack of Jello chocolate puddings in one sitting. Literally.
I've heard a bunch of times that once you have a 5-year-old things get a whole bunch easier because they can help out and as I approach the upcoming celebration of my first born's birth I am assuming that this is just a miracle that takes place ON the birthday itself. Let's just say I do not see any dishwasher unloading in her future and she still makes it a point to wash her hair in the sink and fill up the tooth brush holder with water and make a colossal mess almost every time I send her to the bathroom unattended and I am thinking we'll be in this boat for a while.
I'm pretty sure that I cry during children's books more than most people, but if you want a good cry during a really great children's book, I would hop to it and buy The Clown of God
right now! It is my new very favorite children's book ever and I ask the girls if I can read it to them because I love it so. I had hopes of joining Hallie for Favorites today just so I could include it but then I couldn't think of 4 more and I thought it would be unacceptable to just put the "Clown of God" for 1-5.
Mike has starting reading the girls a book series called Tales of the Kingdom and Tales of the Resistance
and they really love them. The only thing is that they have started living in the characters of the people in the book and now only call each other "Hero" and "Princess Amanda" and refer to me mostly as "Mercy" and Mike as "Care Taker". It makes it hard to have any serious conversations with them especially since Naomi talks in a low man voice while in her character. One day they will be serious all the time and full of angst and I will miss these days so I am letting is go and liking it.
If I make this coffee cake I WILL eat it all. I can't stop opening the recipe and staring, it is only a matter of time.
How in the name of all things good and decent is it only 5 o'clock?
Someone is screaming from the bathroom and I must move, time to publish NOW!
