I have “the sick” that will not go away. This has come with two blessings. So far, knock on wood, my kids remain sick free, and two I have lost 3 pounds.
My fabulous flu
insert layer of sarcasm has afforded my kids the opportunity to learn some new things this week, the hard way.
->Yes the bagel is not toasted enough after one “round” through the toaster. The lesson, two rounds through equals burnt bagel….one and half, just right.
->Yes, they really can make their own lunches, but even with me green to the gills I will be making sure it contains more fruit then junk. Good try little ladies.
->Shockingly, laundry does not do itself! You can’t find socks? Turns out there is no laundry fairy. Mom does that stuff. Huh.
->If you stick your finger too far up your nose and pick, it will bleed. Like, a lot. (Not so much sick related, but one of them learned this the hard way this week..I won’t say which one)
->My kids have figured out how to manipulate me. Yes, when I am lying on the couch, I can be convinced that since they emptied the dishwasher they deserve 2 Girl Guide Cookies. That is rookie Mom stuff, we all know if they want two cookies they have to sweep the floor too!
I better get better soon before these kids figure out how to take over the world!
