Last week I learned...

That March Break is likely the busiest time of the year for any day care mom!!  I barely had time to breathe during the days, let alone eat, or sit down!  6 kids all day, every day.  Mind you I think if they were all my own kids, things would have been different, not sure if it would have been better or worse though.

The 'Barbie' Merida's hair takes as long to dry as the real Merida's Hair!  2 days and counting!

Say WHAT!?

Today I learned...

That you should never say something unless you are 100% certain that if it was repeated you wouldn't sound like a pompous jerk.  As a general rule, your children will repeat it at some point, someone will hear it and you will have to explain - leaving you looking like even more of a jerk.

Ikea - the inspiration!

On Friday night we took a trip to Ikea.
After walking around and around and around, my son found his bed in a room. There was a nice little sitting room underneath it, which inspired him to clean his room.
We bought fabric for new curtains (he was living with Batman ones) and I made some of his old t-shirts into pillows.

Seth's first tie died shirt, 2 shirts from Eric's travels, the Bull from Spain and obviously the NY from New York.
And he received the other t-shirt when his drawing  was published in a magazine when he was in grade 2.

He moved his beanbag chair up from the basement, rearranged the TV and VOILA!

Here is Seth, thoroughly enjoying his room! He says he can't until he is sick and is forced to spend the whole day in there!


This weekend I learned...

It is NEVER alright to skip nap time... no exceptions....

and I learned this on Saturday, but then I learned it again on Sunday - today she is having a nap.

Today I learned...

4 year-olds have literally no filter between their brain and their mouth.  And although their thoughts are mostly innocent, they can sound really inappropriate to an adult...

I wonder if my filter has changed much since I was 4.
