Lesson #1: When you’re 4 years old, it’s a fine line between creativity and disaster.
Lesson #2: You know you live in a small house (perhaps too small) when you’re having a lovely family conversation at the breakfast table, but one of your kids is chiming in from the bathroom.
Lesson #3: When your kids declare it naked day, it’s all fun and games until you remember one of them isn’t potty trained. And both of them can reach the stamps—so in no time they look like they’re starring on the Sprout version of Inked.
Lesson #4: The upside to the neighborhood chili cook-off being rained out (for this wimp, at least), is that I was guaranteed a win in my own cozy house.
Lesson #5: You can spend years under-throwing the basketball for your little one to be able to “block” it, but suddenly one day, you don’t have to fake it any more. And you realize that sweet boy has grown up more than you realized…and certainly more than you were ready for.
Here’s to a crafty, chatty, colorful, tasty, triumphant week!
