A case of the Sundays

17 May

“Extra! Extra! Read all about it, ‘Mom Teaches Boy To Fold Shirts!’” – Braiden

At least we capped off a terrible day on a positive note, a folding party is just what we needed. He’s definitely inherited the ability to make me laugh so hard out loud at the moment I want to throw something breakable.

I’m always reminded how out of my league I am. In the last 8 hours I’ve washed a mouth out with soap, ordered someone to their room, taken away TV privileges, and had a couple long heart to hearts.

Also I broke my child’s spirit with the realization that we cannot have pet birds. I had to try to explain why we can’t have baby chicks in our house. Never mind that they smell, are dirty and/or they’re loud and annoying. Thanks, Emi.

Thank God tomorrow is another day.

    haha he just goes in and does it himself now without arguing, but yes, I used to make him make bubbles before he could rinse. I use that for back talking or a generally dirty mouth to make the ‘punishment fit the crime’ 🙂

    I have to add, we had to upgrade to a bar on Saturday. It was such a horrible, mouthy day and I didn’t know what else could be worse than making soap bubbles. I decided on the Irish Spring – a clean bar though 😉
