Lest you think I have it all together...

  • Daniel ate hand sanitizer the other day and declared it "tasty".
  • One night, Toby found little black floaty things in the water jug. The next day, there were plastic sea toys in there.
  • There has been smoothie spots on my dining room wall for more than a week, with no sign of them coming off soon.
  • More than once, Dan has poured powdered laundry detergent into various containers in the laundry room. I'm thankful it wasn't liquid.
  • My children love to climb everything, including up the hallway walls and out their bedroom windows.
  • They also pull out winter hats and gloves as soon as the temperature drops below 75F.
  • Usually, if Ellie dresses herself, it looks like she lost a bet.
  • One of Abi's history questions was "Name a country that one of Prince Henry the Navigator's expeditions reached." Her answer was "Las Vegas".
  • It has been so long since I've ironed, Toby was struggling to find a subtle way to ask me to iron a shirt or two. What he came up with was, "So, how do you feel about ironing?"
  • I have an upholstery project to tackle that I am so under-inspired and overwhelmed by that I'd rather get rid of the piece of furniture itself than make the needed repairs. However, I've already bought the material, so repair it I must.

I can't be the only one who has yet to get her act together. Any fun tales to share?
