"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

More "have you ever...?"

As promised, here's a continuation of our new little game,

"Have You Ever...?"

As in, have you ever been minding your own business (folding laundry, unloading dishwasher, wiping up a spill, etc., etc.) and heard a thunderous crash come from the bathroom?  Have you ever walked in only to find your 3 year old flat on his back, with his fingers still holding a firm grip to the towel rack that is lying across his chest? 
When you asked him what happened, did he respond like this-

" I was swinging on the rope (AKA-the towel rack), just like Indy Jones, and the rope (again, the towel rack) broke, mom!"

Here's a picture of Indy Jones himself, explaining the incident....(the rope has yet to be fixed.)

On a more recent note, today has been rough.  Have you ever had a day where no one listened to you?  Today is one of those days.  I've been driven to extreme measures.

As in, have you ever locked your kids out of the house? Don't believe me? Here's a picture. 

Look at them, they even drew on their faces with markers.  A sort of war paint thing. 
They're out to get me.

With only minutes to spare (before they start crying), I did what I do best in dire situations.

I hid in the kitchen and devoured one of these.

On my way to a better day...........
