10 Things I learned from my kids

So here is this really neat blog idea that I thought I would join in on. It really made me think of my babies and how much I am missing them now that they are staying at Dad's for most of the rest of the summer. (A blessing considering my elbow- but it still makes me sad)

  1. Things that are sticky not only taste good but are ultimately best used for spreading on yourself and others.
  2. Mud tastes good (see lesson 1), as do many other non food materials that are found in the great outdoors.
  3. Asking "When we gonna be there?" is an art form. The answer should be given in number of TV shows that could pass before we get there- not hours, as they mean nothing to a 4 year old.
  4. Walking to the mailbox is a race- not a walk, in fact EVERYTHING can be made into a competition.
  5. Making faces with bubble gum in your mouth is a great way to use up some time and distract the little man, its also a great way to lose your bubble gum.
  6. The best part of the day almost never involves television. Most of the time these brilliant and memorable moments involve bath time or a really funny bed time story.
  7. Blunt, truthful statements are often the funniest things that you could ever hear.
  8. When I little boy asks if he can eat something, it most likely means that he already has eaten it and is just looking for confirmation.
  9. Nothing, and I repeat NOTHING is more interesting than Dinosaurs, bugs, animals and knights in shining armor (otherwise know as fighting guys)
  10. Despite popular beliefs to the contrary the kitchen counters and dining room table are not for preparing or eating food. They are for setting up movies and battles that are not to be disturbed under penalty of death- or at least 5 minute temper tantrum.
