I can not imagine not being a mom and not having kids. They crack me up on a minute by minute basis. Sometimes the hilarity of them strikes me more then other times. This morning was one of those times.
It is early morning and the blinds are still drawn so it is dark in the house. And we are all excited because it is really chilly for the first time this fall. Parker is dressed but his hair is sticking out every which way but sideways because we haven't combed it yet, and Carson has just snuck downstairs from his pallet next to our bed, which is where he sleeps now every night, and his hair is even worse.
They are on each side of me resting their elbows on my shoulders as I am trying to type early dismissals for school really quick. I need to pick Demi and Parker up early today because of an orthodontist appt.
I am typing hurriedly or we will be late for school since they have already missed the bus and then I have to stop typing because they are cracking me up. Carson is making this weird squeaking sound, telling me over and over again, “Look mom it makes a funny noise when I bite my cheek!" And Parker has been studying my paycheck that is laying on my desk to deposit and all of the sudden breaks out in, “Mom are you going to use this on your wants or your needs?" Lol. How did I get such polar opposites in personalities? As a mom I think it couldn't be better because I have all of the comedic bases covered.
After I laugh at them for a good 60 seconds I make them go away and tell them that they are distracting me. Carson goes to the couch and starts playing his PSP (which is really a red Duplo block that he carries with him ALL of the time) while telling me that he downloaded a shooting game and that it is rated T for Teen - I guess it is his way of rebelling since he knows we are not allowed to play a game like that. And Parker walks back to the pantry to get his toothbrush and toothpaste out for the 10th time this morning complaining, yet again, that he has to wait until AFTER he eats his toaster strudel to brush his teeth because toothpaste and cinnamon don't mix.
And the whole time this has been going on Demi is still only half way through putting her daily hoards of Zanybandz on both arms.
I love my little moppets.
