Vitamin P: perspective

Today the Captain has been nearly self-sufficient, other than needing protection from Sir O.
Sir O, however, has been... um, strong-willed and clingy. And sneaky. So far three is a difficult age.
He is finally asleep and I am glad, but the Captain is now awake, so it doesn't do me much good.

I have a tall glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade keeping me sane.
My kitchen is gross. Don't go in there, I'm warning you. I cannot seem to keep it remotely sanitary for more than an hour. REALLY wishing I could send Sir O outside to eat, and otherwise keep him out of there. But I can't.

We had a lovely 10 minutes today of watching ribbons blow and dancing in them. It eventually got out of control, as always happens with Sir O, and somebody got hurt, as always happens with Sir O. That somebody was the Captain, as usually happens with Sir O.

The laundry is folded. I wish it would put itself away.
I should very much like to spread out in a slightly larger house with a fenced in yard. A big fenced in yard. Feeling a tad bit claustrophobic lately. Grateful I'm not a pioneer living in a 4 room log cabin with 11 people. It would be ugly. Not to mention un-air-conditioned.

See? That just fixed everything. Sort of.

Good come over! Let's have the kids all come run around in water next week sometime. Maybe Monday? Or Wednesday? Or Thursday? Or whatever day it decides not to rain!

Sorry, that last one is from me (Devon). I guess I should log-off from updating the RS blog. Sorry!

"It eventually got out of control, as always happens with Sir O, and somebody got hurt, as always happens with Sir O. That somebody was the Captain, as usually happens with Sir O." Story of my life right now. The last bit you had about the Captain being the one who gets hurt is the only difference here. Our situation is Peanut all the way, including the getting hurt part. 3 is not a kind year so far. Can we cry on each other's shoulders about it?

em, i'm a single guy. my kitchen has times where it's scary. i suspect you're doing much better than you give yourself credit for.

wish you some respite from it all, if but for a moment,

Yeah, I am constantly reminding myself of what the pioneers went through, it does help - most of the time. That lemonade looks yummy, how did you ever have the time to make it? Oh and Sir O having fun, but ending with Capt getting hurt? Been there many times. Daily.

That lemonade does look yummy!:) I hope you are having a better day! There are still days when either one of my kids get hurt from something the other does. It never ends, but at least they feel bad when they hurt the other one now, and give hugs and kisses to say sorry. Most of the time...:)
