Some days I feel like the only time I talk about my kids is when I talk about how they annoy me. They don’t annoy me ALL the time. Sometimes they’re really awesome. But when they’re acting all awesome I’m too afraid to move or I’ll ruin the moment. And by the time I would get around to writing about it, one of them is most likely sitting on their sibling or putting dirt in their hair and then I forget about the awesome that happened previously.
So, just like my Oh Crap posts, I need to start Oh Wow posts. My first title was Holy Shit who IS this kid?! but I don’t think that will help remind me of their awesomeness. I feel I need documentation that my kids are not actually wild animals in disguise.
At the park spreeny-beany ran to bendaboo when he fell off the equipment to make sure he was ok and give him a hug. He then stayed with him the rest of the time, making sure he didn’t get hurt again.
Pretty girl helped Ben wash his hands before supper and tried to convinced him to eat his supper by telling him to make his plate match hers.
Both the older kids helped Ben try to find his new toothbrush. He was using it as a sword and lost it. It’s still missing but at least they tried.
Tonight at a school choir thing bendaboo wasn’t feeling good and he climbed off my lap and sat on spreeny-beany’s chair with him and put his head on his shoulder. And then Eric patted his head. I melted.
My hope is that one day there will be more of these posts than the crap ones. But I’m not really holding my breath.
I would pass out and Ben would poke me in the eye.
