Lesson #1: While working in Big’s preschool class, I discovered that criss-cross-apple-sauce means more than ‘sit quietly with your legs crossed’. It’s also the green light to 1) pick your nose or 2) lick your hands. Seriously. Every. Single. Kid. (Guess it’s no wonder that we had to leave early because Big wasn’t feeling well.)
Lesson #2: I could break up the non-stop wrestling around here—especially since someone always ends up crying. But while I may save a few tears, I’d take away loads of heartwarming laughter.
Lesson #3: When your 22-month old randomly (I swear it was randomly) chants, “Beer! Beer! Beer!” through the grocery store, it kind of makes you wish you’d bought some so you could crack one open. (A beer, that is, not a kid.)
Lesson #4: While moms can be a lot of wonderful things to their little boys, we can never be their dads.
Lesson #5: With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I’ve heard about a lot of people doing different things to make a difference. (I’ve tried to wear at least a touch of pink every day in honor of my blogging friend, Julie’s, 31 Days of Pink Challenge.) But as I watched various NFL games today, I was truly in awe of the manly men sporting bright pink in support of women everywhere.
I hope you had a squeaky clean weekend filled with laughter, hope and people (like Dad) to share a toast with!
