Has it really been two weeks since I've had the time to collect and review my thoughts?
As always, my brain is so full of things I'd like to share, it makes my fingers freeze with fear.
Should I write about my insatiable spring fever and how I long for fresh new colors on the walls within this home? Have you seen the 'farm palette' from Benjamin Moore? If I am ever lucky enough to be surrounded by walls like those, I'd forever be in an apron, whipping up apple pie and hollerin' at the boys to bring mama more eggs from the coop. Someday, someday.
Maybe I should tell you about the 'little things' that have happened since our last talk.....
-Like the boy who was playing hide and seek and got stuck inside our entertainment unit. Instead of asking me to rescue him, his 4 brothers kindly brought him a pillow so he'd be comfortable during his captivity. I think they were disappointed when he was finally set free.
-Or how about the boy who shoved both sides of his cute little nose full of chocolate chips? I approached him ever so slowly as to not make him panic. Just as I got within arms reach, he did the inevitable and sniffed. Now the 20+ chocolate chips were jam-packed. I carefully plucked the few that I could and prepared the entire brood for a field trip to the ER. But wait a minute.....we all know what happens to chocolate when it gets warm. What am I panicking for? This isn't like the boy who stuck Lego's up his nose. That was an emergency. Surely the chocolate will melt, right? 15 minutes (and a lot of crying) later, the boy's nose was running a chocolate waterfall that would have made Willy Wonka jealous.
His brothers just stared with envy. And then one chimed in-
"Now those are boogies you can eat!"
