Dear Kids… (February 2011)
This a continuation of hilarious Facebook status updates by my friend Amy. I think she deserves a vacation all by herself.
2/27/11 – Dear Kids~ It is in everyone’s best interest that I do NOT hear an alarm clock go off in the middle of the night, like I have the past few nights! Not sure if you’re playing pranks on each other or what… BUT IT HAS TO END!!! Always the Killjoy, Mom ?
2/22/11 – Loves the child who woke her up sweetly singing “Happy Birthday” and the (to remain nameless) one who was interrupting this sweet tune yelling repeated questions about what there was to drink with breakfast!! ?
2/21/11 – Dear Boys~ Any particular reason there is a glass jar (covered in paper mache) filled with water and silly string in your bathroom sink?! Just curious!! ?Mom
2/20/11 – Dear Kids~ Do not speak to me OR send me notes when I am on the phone, unless someone is puking (someplace other than the toilet or a designated puke bowl), bleeding (profusely and you are unable to stop it), or there is a major emergency! Passing me a note that someone took TWO pieces of pizza, does not qualify as a major, or even minor emergency!!!! Always the killjoy, Mom ?
2/18/11 – Dear Kids~ If you lose something.. you might want to do two things, tell me and check the lost and found at school. (I just so happened by it the other day.. and what is on the top of the box… but one of my kiddos sweatshirts that I had no idea were missing!)
2/17/11 – Had to laugh as her (to remain nameless) son and her were sharing candy hearts! He took one out, read it to himself and said, “I can’t give you this one cause it would not be appropriate (cause you’re my mom).” Turns out it said “Hot Stuff!”
2/15/11 – Dear (to remain nameless child of mine)~ I am thrilled that you actually put toothpaste on your toothbrush last night! However, leaving that toothbrush, with the toothpaste on, on the counter overnight, will not actually get your teeth clean! Tonight’s goal is to take it one step further and actually use the toothbrush!! Love, Mom ?
2/12/11 – would like to apologize to the elderly gentleman I ran into while Mall Walking this week! Would also like to thank him for being so kind about it and even introducing himself to us and telling me I can tell everyone “I ran into an old guy named Joe today”!
2/10/11 – Minus the kid who had a bloody nose and left a trail of blood as he ran from one end of the house upstairs… all the way downstairs (to the other end of the house)to retrieve a tissue (bypassing several options along the way), the dog bringing in poop from outside, the kid who lost his glasses and his homework (glasses found, but not homework) and all the fighting… it was a lovely morning! :)
2/9/11 – just loves trying to take a nice, peaceful shower while getting a thousand questions screamed (loud enough to be heard over the fan) at her! I’ve decided I either need an intercom system so I can hear questions clearly and there’s no need for screaming and repeating each question 17 times or a REALLY good pair of earplugs! (I’m leaning toward option two!)
2/5/11 – Dear Kids~ When you put the “clean” dishes away… the white stuff dripping out of the top cup, and down onto all the others… was MILK!! In the future.. it would be a good idea to actually remove that cup immediately, rather than leave it sit.. to continue dripping all over the cupboard! Always the killjoy, Mom ?
2/4/11 – No son, I don’t think the goodwill wants your stained underwear! It’s always good to have a giving heart though ?! LOL
2/2/11 – loves that one of her kiddos made her breakfast in bed… even if it was burnt toast and one of the pieces was an end piece!! :) ?
2/1/11 – The kiddos are downstairs playing “roadkill.” I don’t even want to know what that game involves! :)
