This is the Way We Clean the House….

By raise of hands how many of us would like to know why our children seem to have been replaced with psychotic alien beings?
We are in some MAJOR discipline boot camp around our house. Today’s video brought to you as a direct result of said boot camp….

Thank God for moments like these. Those little rays of humorous sunshine that ensure these little shits get to live one more day!

Preschool Teacher Showdown

At school,Hurricane is doing a theme on the planets.  He seems very interested in this subject, so I’m enjoying him exploring a new passion.  As a result we have Solar System pictures plastered all over the brag wall, the fridge, his bedroom…you get the idea.

This afternoon, I had the rare opportunity to take JUST HIM to school (usually the other monstrosities are in the car).  So we turned off the radio and visited.  I resisted the temptation to drill him on numbers or letters, instead just letting him direct the conversation.

Below is the result of Hurricane controlling the convo…..

I love being upstaged by a five year old!

Until next brag….

Out of the mouths of babes

You know those moments you know you need to record…lest you forget?

I have millions of them…and Hurricane is five.  So I’ve missed many opportunities along the way.  Anyway, I had to share…

Hurricane has this new thing lately…he will say to Tornado, but Tornado I care about you.  I don’t know where it came from; and at first I was sure he was being naughty with his twist on words.  So I asked him tonight about it.  No, it is genuine.  My heart soars to hear him say it!  They can be worst of enemies and best of friends.  Hopefully they will remember that always!

The newest is this…tonight, on the way home from Bboys, Hurricane says; Ive been thinking mom.  I don’t really like Hurricane.  He doesn’t usually refer to himself in third person, so I had to dig a little.  Come to find out he means he doesn’t like his name.  I giggle.

“Ok, so if you don’t like that name, what name would you like?” says a giggly me.

“Ummmmmm, I was thinking Sharkboy would be a good name” deadpan serious Hurricane replies.

Me in a fit of giggles…”ok, Sharkboy.  I guess we can call you Sharkboy from now on.”

I haven’t in a while, but I think I will pull out an Adam Sandler classic “Big Daddy” and watch it tonight.  And while I watch I think I will do this little project….that way I won’t miss anymore of these little moments!!

It’s a little table top calendar…you don’t have to jot down every day but how accessible when you have a good memory to keep!
