Remember the sweeping servant incident? Well, now I find out that the kids are supposed to have their chore for an entire week. I asked Fluffy if she did her sweeping the next day after Cinderellagate, and she said no. She said she took down her chore card and put it on the table.
Fluffy: I think they got the message that I don’t want to do it anymore.
Earlier this week as I was chopping chocolate for my dessert club entry, Peppers who is getting more verbal all the time came up and said:
Peppers: Are you making a Zone bar, Mommy?
Me: Nope. I’m making brownies.
Peppers: Are you making brownies, Mommy?
That conversation reminded me of when Fluffy was very small and kept asking for a “Fubbawubba”. I told her we didn’t have any, but she was adamant that we did, and I was just keeping it from her. That’s when I realized a Fubbawubba is a Fiber One bar, though we have only ever called them Fubbawubba’s since.
We are hitting some major milestones around here. This week, the boys were invited to their first birthday party that wasn’t just a family thing. And last week, they had their first official playdate. I was surprised that they both totally understood what a playdate meant and were super excited to go. Until a last moment disagreement about vehicular property ensued at the door. Any guesses from the pictures who won that one?
You may have noticed a certain amount of slacking in my posting these past weeks. Like when I let my spam comments reach over 600 and had to weed out and answer people’s legit comments several days late. Or when I missed two days of posting this week. Well, remember that stomach flu? How could you forget? Anyway, I have it now, and it turns out it is/was a parasitic infection (possibly from Mexican lettuce–knew I should have bought local) which in addition to the GI issues causes extreme fatigue for up to a month. I feel like I have mono or am 3 months pregnant with twins. The fatigue is insane. I have fallen asleep on my chair during the day twice. I’ve been going to bed around 9:30pm. I slept through my blogging time multiple times and through my tooth fairy duties once which resulted in a torrent of tears. More on that later. Even as I’m typing this, I feel like I’m about toa;sldkmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
