- I'm so glad you all got such a kick out of Brian's guest post on Friday! One of our friends at church yesterday mentioned she wasn't quite sure she'd ever be able to look at him the same now that she's seen his "dad bod" ;)
- Whenever we have child-free plans and a babysitter lined up, I feel like I catch the parent version of senioritis in the 1-2 hours leading up to said plans. My (already low) tolerance for whining and tantrums plummets to approximately zero and it takes incredible self-restraint for me not to hand them a sleeve of cookies and call it a day. I'm guessing this is what the last 1-2 hours before dads get home feel like for SAHMs every day?
- Speaking of minimally caring for one's dependents, the dogs had their semi-annual bath this weekend. If you think I'm exaggerating, then you should know that the last time we had them bathed was literally 6 months ago. The good news is that (a) we bathe the children much more often than that, and (b) the twins were excited about another excuse to visit the pet store:
- We experienced our first double time-out situation yesterday (both twins in time-out at the same time) and it was really neat. As you might expect, Colby fought it but eventually cooperated, calmed down, and went back to eating his lunch. As you also might expect, Clara lost her marbles, simultaneously reached out her arms for me/hit me when I tried to get closer, and received 2 spankings before deciding to rejoin the human race. Good times.
