Goldi is not the only thing giving me a Great Big Headache lately. My kids are doing a pretty good job of that themselves. Jordan can't put away more than two things in her room, without asking "Can I take a break now?" (Yes, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.) And Josh wakes up every morning and says, "I hope the lice are back so I can stay home from school!" Did I mention we had lice a few weeks ago. N-I-G-H-T-M-A-R-E.
Maybe that's why I've been too exhausted to blog. I even have Guest Posts ready to go and I can't manage to get them up. (Did I mention the tree?) My laziness knows no bounds.
But then, this past weekend, I saw Shrek. Shrek has it all. A nice home. A beautiful, loving supportive wife. Three precious little baby ogres. And you know what? He isn't happy! He misses his carefree days when he didn't have all the responsibility of a family. So, he makes a deal with the devil (Rumpelstiltskin) and he almost loses it all. It is only then that he comes to appreciate what he had.
Not sure my kids even understood the film, but boy... did it hit home with me.
My kids are ADORABLE.
Who else would say, "Mommy, today we are going to a burrito farm." (arboretum?)
OR "Mommy, I have a new system. If I back up when I pee, I don't hit the wall."
Gosh, I love those two!
