- I start early and fix a nice, balanced meal
- I sit the girls down at the table
- I clean up and scold the two year old for throwing the food when she decides it’s “icky”
- I fix a slightly less healthy meal
- I sit them back at the table
- I clean the next mess up as the two year old (who has ate a few bites from each meal) makes yet another mess
- I cave in and feed them what they want- despite it being what I deem as healthy
- I clean the last mess up and finally release them from the table
- I bang my head against the wall repeatedly while doing the fourth or fifth load of dishes of the day and silently scream because I don’t understand how I ended up with such picky and light eaters.
“Mommy likes coffee, Michelle likes coffee”
“You sneezed, mommy”
“I didn’t sneeze, mommy”
I love watching and listening to my daughter. She amazes me daily with some of the things she says. Our seven year old is growing her vocabulary as well- she’s starting to speak in small sentences and says anything. Learning (teaching herself) how to read has been a huge plus- now she reads and she’s getting faster and faster.
The two year old also has a great imagination- which is growing the seven year old’s as well. They play pretend and Diana takes on the characters Michelle gives her. lol
They’re always Annie and Quincy from Baby Einsteins.
My two year old also says some of the funniest things and (bad thing) seems to know no stranger. We’re working on that one..
What are some of your kids’ most used or funniest phrases? My daughter will announce to people that mommy likes coffee (guess that’s my fault for drinking it all the time)
Lock the husband and kids out. Maybe all of us can go live somewhere else and just sleep on the beds.
I think that’s the only way I’ll keep my house clean for now…
No matter how old you are or who you are, nobody is to lick the cat
There will be no throwing of chairs or any other objects at the cat
The cat is to be pet on demand and fed every time someone goes into the kitchen. The cat food is FOR the cat, it is not meant for human consumption.
No licking windows
No licking walls
No licking anything
These are the rules for all whom enter my home, no exceptions- even the tiny people who live here.
I never thought I would have those rules until I had kids… I never even thought I would have to say “dont lick the cat.”
You and your husband are the only ones awake and you announce you need to potty.
You put the kids in bed hours ago but Disney/Nick Jr is still playing in the background
You have rules such as- 1. No licking the cat. 2. No licking the door. 3. No licking your sister and 4. No throwing objects at the cat.
You know the pain of stepping on a Shopkinz toy (hurts worse than a Lego)
You have to buy a new vacuum almost annually due to overuse.
Your shampooer is constantly out and running.
You have random stains in your mattress, mattress pad, couch and chairs- you’re not sure what they are but you know it’s food.
