Quick post

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the encouraging comments : ) I loved Lola's recommendation of chocolate and the closet, I am still LOL about that one! I came really close to trying the closet! Everything was fine the minute dh walked in the door, the kids have been their *normal* wild selves since then, not their *abnormal* wild selves they were this weekend. I made it through and no one died : )

I was even starting to think we had turned a corner with the oldest two boys. Parker made a cake and was serving everyone a piece, including Austin. That alone was a miracle, but then he brought Austin a big glass of cold milk. I was stunned, I seriously almost teared up at the sweetness of this gesture because these two do NOT get along! Well, I shouldn't have been so touched. He comes in a little while later and tells his brother that he had spit in the milk................ Austin actually thought it was funny and drank the milk anyway ::::gag:::: Of course, now he will have to get Parker back. Please God, let it be when dh is home from work?!

Motherhood is so *interesting* some days LOLOL

Sounds normal - there certainly is never a dull moment when you have a children around! Have a great day!

Oh, that's hilarious! Just when we start to get emotional about how sweet our kids can be, they sure turn it around quick, don't they?

LOL! ...and YUCK!
Luckily my kids are still so small, that they only spit in their own drinks....

I'm so glad to got through the weekend without having to hide in the closet....that's not a bad idea, though :-D I'll remember that one!

Of course it wouldn't have been any fun to spit in the milk and not tell his brother! In ten years they'll be best friends and laugh about all the teenage squabbles - please, God!
