It's been a month

My life in twitter updates from the last month (and in reverse order). . .

May 5, 2010 Caught red handed.

May 3, 2010


There are moments when I'm out w/ my boys & I get them strapped into the car, that I wait to get in for a few seconds to enjoy the peace.

I'm watching the news and Jack says, "Oh, man! I do NOT like oil!"
Wishing I'd let him go down and play with his brother . . .

Jack knows how to get the crowd excited . . .

April 26, 2010 Have I mentioned that Kyle cleaned the house while I was gone? Because he did. Bathrooms and everything. April 22, 2010 Future surgeon scrubbing in?
Me: You're doing a great job, Jack! Jack: That's because I'm a great jobber.

Ben took his first tumble . . . and I think it shook me more than it did him.

When people being interviewed on the news use words that aren't really words (like "progressment") I shift uncomfortably in my chair.

Bennett about had a meltdown when he ran out of Cheerios. The kid really likes his toasted oats, I guess.

Why are power buttons always pretty and glowy, thus making them attractive to little hands that shouldn't be touching them?

April 18, 2010 There's a fine line between old and new . . . one man's "modern" is another man's "retro."

Kyle totally cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom last night. And Jack just undid it with one sneeze with a mouth full of cereal.

April 16, 2010 I just got the first fat lip I've ever had. And it was from a 6 month old.
When I start to type a question into google, and the question auto-completes . . . it makes me feel less alone.

"Why, Mommy? Why do I ask so many questions?"

Jack announced our address to everyone we saw on our walk. He might as well have followed with, "We're not home & our doors are unlocked."

I dared Jack to eat an onion slice & told him he could watch a show if he did. I've never seen him shove anything in his mouth so quickly.

April 13, 2010

Oh good . . . I was so hoping that Ben would have the same fascination with getting into trash that Jack always had.

jodobird @saraluke Today he told me not to shoot the nerf dart at people or he'd have to take it away from me. :)

Jack is in his room singing, "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer . . . hallowed by thy name."

Jack: Look at all the stickers I stuck on my shirt! Me: Not stickers, Jack. Postage stamps.
Jack: Remember when I used to obey all the time? Me: I have a faint recollection . . .

April 10, 2010

Kyle: Would you like an apple for a snack. Jack: No, it's too juicy. Kyle: How about some carrots. Jack: No, they're too . . . orange-y.

If Kyle knows that the elephant noise makes Ben cry, why does he insist on doing it so often?
