I saw this “demotivational” poster the other day, and I thought the tag line was awesome. It was something like “Parenthood: it’s like having a blender that’s on all the time. With no top.”
So true. It’s 0945 right now, and so far today I’ve:
Watched The Lion King
Tried to stuff cereal into a moving target
Had a Lego Fire Station engineering consultation
Watched 3 Barney episodes
Gave John a bath
Mediated a Nerf gun battle in the courtyard
Supervised a toy vacuuming of John’s room
Went for a walk to see if the boys outside had destroyed anything
Shared a banana with John
Was given a toddler beat down
Peed with the bathroom door open while John tried to vandalize the diaper pail
It’s been a productive morning. All that’s left school-wise is the latter half and citation page for an essay on whether or not the Tuskegee syphilis study would be dismissed on ethical grounds today (yes to that part).
Not sure if we’ll make church tonight, because John is still coughing and Jen is fairly jacked up, too. Will try, though. It’s been a pretty good day so far.
