    for waking up 15 minutes AFTER my kids...

    I woke up to super soaker wars in my bathroom. They had SO much water on the floor it started leaking through my kitchen ceiling. I mopped up water with 5 bath towels, 4 teeshirts and 2 pairs of sweat pants. I'm not kidding, there was a good 2 inches on my floor, on the walls, on the ceiling, down the steps.... [​IMG]

    You really got to have the patience of a saint to have kids. I swear.

    They're 3.5 and 1.5 years old, I could hardly kill them. They're in time out on the couch until DH gets home. [​IMG] I'm fuming though. I have water leaking from light fixtures in my ceiling :eek:

    I would have mopped the floors up with their miserable little hides. *

    Fifteen minutes can be such a long time. One of my boys did 15 min. in my kitchen when he was 2 1/2. Took me three days to recover.

    Ah young boys. [​IMG]

    I had my little granddaughter stay over last night. This morning I woke up to her crawing in my bed, giving me kisses on the cheek, and whispering, "Pappa, time-a get up".

    The differences between boys and girls. [​IMG]

    I would like to see a picture of them in time out [​IMG] They are sooooooo cute. I think you need a pic anyway to spark the memory when they are older. Then you can laugh about it [​IMG]

    I woke up this morning to read my hometown paper online as usual.

    There was a story about a 3 yr. old girl who died of cancer. She told her mom she " didn't want to be an angel".

    Kind of puts things in perspective I think.
