Tony and I were talking about Anton’s wet pants while I was changing Anton’s diaper.  During the conversation Anton was talking about being wet too.

I then said “Maybe if you are lucky we will go to the P  O  O  L (spelled out) tomorrow.”

Anton said without missing a beat “We go to swimming pool tomorrow?”

Imagine a whining kid, a screaming crying kid, and a mother trying not to scream and failing miserably.

All over what you ask?  Global warming? World Hunger? The economy? Heath care? No?

While trying to leave the house today I set the lunch box I carry the kids lunch in at the top of the stairs that lead to the front door.  That was my first mistake.  Usually I ask one of the kids to carry it for me.  Today I did not specify which kid should carry the lunch box and they both went for it and that’s when the fun started.

A lunch box.  Not even a fancy metal lunch box with spider-man or a Disney princess on it.  Just a plain black one.

I always wanted to be an artist.  I just never knew it would be life art I would be making…

Oh and who ended up carrying the plain black lunch box you ask?
