I wish you could have been with me. There I was, making every attempt to clean…no, make that sanitize my lovely Honda Accord yesterday afternoon from all the bouts of snow and ice we’ve had over the last month when my sons BOTH decide to start giving themselves hickeys with the vacuum cleaner hose. Yes. Yes they did. At one point, Seth had the suction on his entire eye and both he and his brother were laughing hysterically as his eyeball nearly came out of the socket. Dear Lord. Later they decide to turn on the water outside and make mud pies. Mud pies are fun, right? They are until your 3-year old submerges his entire face into the mud puddle to where you can only see his eyes and teeth and then comes to show you like he’s won a trophy. Again, they were beside themselves. I love boys. I really do. I doubt I could handle the drama that girls bring. But sometimes, Lord? Can you just make them stop all this nonsense? Pre-shade-it.
