How is it that my children are so hungry? To the point where they have eaten the following and it's only 11am. Yogurt, two mini pumpkin muffins, pb&j "sammiches", ritz crackers with cream cheese and several cups of beverage. Each. (That's x3) The youngest is currently eating leftover pasta from last night. (although I am also eating lunch now, too.) So, is this normal? Seriously, I can not go to the kitchen without them eventually noticing I'm there and they become ravenous vultures. It's so strange. I rarely eat anything without having to share it. Unless it's anything green, soupy or just "looks gross". (Hmm... maybe I should start adding green food dye to anything I eat.) I bet the grocery store loves me.
I loved the comments/support on yesterdays post Stop. It made me feel so much better that I wasn't the only one having that issue. I currently have my laundry sorted through and waiting patiently to be put away and I took advantage of a little lady's mid morning fussiness to wash up the dishes. I read her two books at least seven times each. And clearly, by the looks of the book shelf, they know we have more than TWO books.
|My mother would be so impressed|
Am I right? And will it stop me from buying them books even though they will continue bringing the Thomas book to me? No. No, it won't. In fact I already have a list of books I want to get them for their birthdays and Christmas. (last year I got D a book for his birthday and when he opened it he was visibly disappointed. He also said, "oh, great, a book" in such a sarcastic tone that everyone laughed. It won't stop me.)
Yesterday I was looking for our old infant car seat (for someone else who wanted the base) and look what I saw when I opened the door to one of the storage rooms...
If you aren't sure what you should be seeing it's hanging from the rafter there. What is that? Oh, just a snake skin. Hanging from the rafter. It is huge. I was about to tell Beard-O last night and before I could even finish my sentence he said, "Oh, did you see that snake skin?" What the... Apparently it's been there for a while. Ugh... total body cringe. Now I get to wonder where the snake went.
Not much else going on here. I shall see you tomorrow... same place maybe not the same time.
