It's time for an Eye Twitch post

It's been a long time since I've needed to do an Eye Twitch post -- I thought for sure I'd get at least one this summer, but I don't think I have.  Needless to say, the time has come.

It's the first day of school for my lovelies -- they were up at the crack of dawn (okay, at the buzzing of their alarms, but close enough) -- dressed and washed and combed and fed.  They were just a little excited to be getting back to school.  I'd gone and prepared all their stuff (labeling every pencil and such), helped them to lay out their clothes, went over the lunch menu, refreshed my memory for school-leaving-time -- but forgot to remind my daycare parents that I'd be leaving to the school.  Doh!

So, since my kids have gone into the school (at 830) right up until nap time (noon), I have been asked numerous questions...here are a few of my answers (if I can remember them all!)

  • no, you can't go to school, you're only 2.
  • no, you cannot play your DS, it's beautiful outside.
  • no, you should not eat worms.
  • no, that's not puke, it's a yogurt parfait! (thanks a lot)
  • Yes, that will happen when you use too much toilet paper. (ugh)
  • Yes, your brown dress is beautiful.
  • No, you cannot play your DS.
  • Yes, your glow-in-the-dark pants are beautiful.
  • Yes, your brown dress is beautiful.
  • no, you cannot play your DS.
  • Yes, I can read a book....once you put away the little people.
  • No, you cannot play your DS.
  • Yes, your brown dress is beautiful.
  • No, I cannot read the book yet because you still didn't clean up the little people.
  • Yes, that is a big booger!
  • Yes, I wear panties.
  • No, you cannot play your DS.
  • Yes, your brown dress is beautiful.
  • No, you cannot throw the toy drill across the room!
  • No, you cannot play your DS.
  • Yes, The Cat in the Hat is my favourite book!
  • Hmm....I'm not sure if the Cat in the Hat is a good guy or a bad guy.  What do you think?
  • No, you cannot play your DS.
  • Yes, I think I'd let the Cat in the Hat come over to play, but only if he asked first.
  • Yes, I can see your feet, but please take them off of the dinner table.
  • No, you cannot play your DS.
  • No, you cannot play your DS after lunch.
  • No, you cannot play your DS at nap time, either.
  • Sorry, you cannot have the toys with you on your nap cots.
  • No, you cannot play your DS. (and I'm getting a little sick of answering this question)
  • I know you don't "yuv" naps, but you're so tired, you're taking one anyhow.
  • No...you ....cannot...ply...your...DS!!

It's now 12:43, the kids are all sleeping...time enough for me to do some deep breathing and prepare for the afternoon!
