More Proof...

that I won't be winning mother of the year. If you saw a red bead on the floor would you A) let it lay, B) throw it away C) push it up your nose. We all know what a three year old will do. He started yelling the minute after he did it. After I figured out what he'd done I just shook my head. Dh was home and did not take it so calmly. He tried having him blow it out, then put him on the table and kept looking up his nose with the flashlight. He was getting really panicky (dh , not three year old, lol) I did what any sensible mom would do, I shone the light into his eyes which made him sneeze which shot that little bead right across the room. I sincerely hope if they ever sever an artery I'm here and not dh.
It also occurred to me about 20 minutes ago that L is the "Star Student" this week and I was supposed to send pictures to Kindergarten with her to share. I'm sure I'll hear about my inadequacies when she gets home. E is also upset because I'm not going to be able to attend either of her basketball games this week. I'm sure they are keeping a log of all these faults to relate to their psychotherapist some day. On the bright side (and this is bragging), the three kids who get grades were all on the honor roll, two of them with straight A's. This really had nothing to do with me but they did work hard to get those grades. It gives me hope that they may have a work ethic afterall!!!!

When my sister was three (and I was seven) we were riding in my mom's friend's car in the back seat (without seat belts of course - 1972 and all) and my sister found a bead on the floor board and promptly stuck it in her nose.

She complained about that bead for years... six years to be exact...

Until we were, again, riding in my mom's friend's car and my sister sneezed, and the bead landed in her hand.

Three of us witnessed it go in, three of us endured the complaints for six years, and three of us witnessed it's dislodging... in a car we only rode in twice...

Thanks for the memories, LOL. I'm off to keep a closer eye on my three year old...
