Current Happenings

The fact that I cannot get up as quickly and am tired more frequently has not escaped the boys, here are some of their current tricks and sneaky behavior:

Thomas:
Peeling hard-boiled eggs...in the shower
Sneaking an entire pack of cookie dough into his room and eating it...twice
Writing in chalk and crayon on the kitchen wall and floor
Drinking his water-color water
Placing miscellaneous items in the fridge (tupperware, paper, crayons, etc.)
Cleaning the toilet with the toilet wand
Carrying raw eggs around the house in a tea kettle
Writing all over face and body with chalk

Joshua:
Peeling eggs...oops, not hard-boiled, raw!
Sticking chalk in his underwear and running around the house leaving it where ever it falls

Both:
Jumping off top bunk to reach a balloon that had traveled into their room...yes they finally got it!

The iron pills are making me extremely nauseous and putting me in a lot of pain, but the upside is that I have more energy. I'm working on changing around the dosage and timing so I feel better for more periods of the day (like today). THEN, hopefully I can get a hold on this behavior! Luckily, they are being nice together. Should I just throw up my hands and call it brotherly bonding? :)

Oh my gosh! What a handful! You seem to handle it in good spirits, though :)

The toilet cleaning could come in handy...encourage that one!

Sounds like boys :) I hope you get things figured out with your meds! I would probably let them enjoy themselves, as long as they are getting along!

Oh wow! They are definitely full of it. :) Good luck!

I took my iron pills at night and mostly slept through any yucky side effects, are you giving anymore thought to the name Carissa :), btw I am still using your recipes all the time, you saved me!
