So earlier today Mint Julep (go check out her cool blog) posted this about the hurricane which hit Olive's "bedroom...
"OMG that was too funny! What a mess. My kids will not have any toys. Just tv to entertain them.
So, it looks bad to bring the kids to a liquor store? I'll have to remember that.
My husband just found out that you can't go for a run while your kid is taking a nap."
Why is this funny? because I always said the same thing. Then you know what happens?...your mean friends who have yet to have kids or have kids who are grown up, buy every noise making, itty bitty pieced set of plastic, lead filled ,goodness for your child. It's reaaaally funny to them. Hysterical actually. They love to see you open up the "learning barnyard toyset" with about 78 tiny pieces, that is able to loudly sing Old Macdonald in 5 Languages with motion detector alone, and oink like a pig, while strobing out the entire bedroom with red, green, and blue lights. Awesome huh? yes...and for some reason it never seems to be the type of toy you can sneak from the child's room. They always KNOW when it's missing even if they haven't touched it in 4 months
As far as the part about realizing you can't go for a run while the kids are sleeping...it took me til kiddo #2 to figure out that one. I'm amazed that boy even made it as long as he did.
