Five Views of a Day

Little A, 4:45 am: You know, if you just gave in and took your nipple out this standoff would finally end.

G, 3:30 pm: Obviously I don't want to pull weeds OR go inside and read a book by myself. Stop acting like those are my only two options; your minds are tiny and weak.

J, 6:30 pm: That thing you're calling "candied garlic" and eating as fast as you possibly can is actually a roasted onion. You say you hate onions, but I'm not correcting you.

Big A, 6:50 pm: Two nostrils gushing blood. Two wads of toilet paper. I look like a sad walrus.

L, 7:30 pm: I just sang a perfect rendition of "The Mysterious Ticking Noise" by the Harry Potter Puppet Pals, and no one even noticed.

  1. I laughed so hard when I got to the end!

    I love your children like crazy.

    I had to read this to Chris, which I had already told myself I never would do anymore because he never loves what I love as fiercely as I do (except maybe our children).

    I had to read it to him because I was laughing so hard in the card.

    He didn't care like I did. And it was a relief. This space is mine and a few more people and that's it.
