Lesson #1: As a girl, I’ve always envied how easy it is for boys to go to the bathroom—anywhere. After hearing Big shout from the bath, “Ow! I just peed in my eye!” I’m thinking easy isn’t always best.
Lesson #2: My kids will do anything for an M&M (ok, four M&Ms). Little’s even potty training himself—much to my dismay—for the love of those tasty morsels. (Am I the only mom who prefers diapers to accidents?)
Lesson #3: It turns out cardboard isn’t a ‘nice to have’ when it comes to concrete slides. It’s a necessity. The proof? A hole in my pants and a nasty bruise/road rash…well, where my pants used to be. Consider yourself warned!
Lesson #4: Football season is much more fun when one of your teams actually wins. (Thank you, Bruins.) No doubt it was thanks to the combination of clothes our family was/wasn’t wearing, the fact that we completely forgot to hang our flag—yes, we have a flag—and that we ate soup for dinner. This pattern will be repeated for the next 10(?) weeks, just in case.
Lesson #5: Scheduling your kid’s surgery for when your husband is out of town doesn’t make you a super mom. It makes you a crazy one. Wish Little and his poor teeny ears (and me) good luck tomorrow morning!
Hope you had an eye-opening, encouraging, smooth, victorious, drama-free week! As always, feel free to share any “Lessons” you learned this week in the comments. I look forward to hearing from you!
