At a mother daughter banquet this past weekend, a friend shared that you just have to choose to laugh rather than cry at some of the things our kids do. I constantly remind myself of the need to laugh. Somehow, the phrase “there is no sense in crying over spilled milk” gets put into constant practice literally at our house. (Unless its breastmilk, then I really do cry.) Our house is always full of
noise excitement tears laughter life.
Here are a few of the things that we have laughed at lately
Alex emptied the ENTIRE newly organized toy/book shelf (Including actually pulling the shelves off). When I asked him what happened he said “the big giant tomatoes did it!”. Hmmmm maybe I should reconsider veggie tales.
I set the kids up to do some water colors. I even had them take their shirts off, and still Kalea turned them into finger paints and made me wish I had taken her shorts off too.
Not to be outdone, Alex did the same
Alex (trying to save me from extra work) poured himself an extra bowl of Cheerios… all over the floor.
This was pretty classic of Kalea’s look and mood most of the week 😛
This little guy became mobile:
Which led to this guy getting upset
Because “MOM! Michael is playing with my STUFF!”
When I would ask Michael about it, he merely looked at me, grinned and showed me his new trick: Clapping =)
Welcome to life at the HamHouse! =) I <3 my life!
