Slapped in the Face by Reality

Nothing quite says your home like:

Not being able to get your kids ready for school because the chrysalis is moving and they’re fascinated by the fact the butterfly should emerge today. Meanwhile, I’m preparing myself for the inevitable weeping and gnashing of teeth that will occur when they realize I’m serious, that this butterfly will NOT be spending its life cycle in a plastic cup…

Not being able to convince your second son that he really really must eat lunch today and he can’t figure out what he wants. GRRRR.

And lastly, nothing quite says ‘I’m home!’ like hearing my first son say, as he’s getting ready for school, “Mom! There’s CRAP all over the bottom of my shoes. I smelled it. It really is crap…” I love cleaning off crap from the bottom of a shoe at 7AM. LOOOOVE IT!

Oh yuck - never a fun job... (Glad to see you made it home safe and sound!) :)

I had to clean cat crap off of the floor on my hubby's side of the bed this morning at 6:30, does that count? Our older cat apparently had a litter box emergency while the bedroom door was closed and couldn't wake us up in time. :(

My mom's motto was, "you stepped in it, you clean it".
