shut down!


Sid was trying to do his puzzles when the little baby woke up and crawled over…greeted his older brother by climbing onto his lap and then trying to stand clutching on to Sid’s hair for support. So far all was ok…Then LB spotted the sponge puzzles and squealed with delight lunging straight at them and shrieking (yes he squeals and shrieks).  SId snatched the piece back but LB pulled at it once more. Grabbed back by Sid. LB was not happy and started to bawl very loudly. SId put aside the puzzle, looked at LB with a stern look and said Please Shut Down!!! I looked at him quizzically and he explained that he did not say the forbidden ‘shut up’… and the baby was taking his stuff and making noise!

With that he went back to his puzzles.

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
