Quick Thoughts

 
~~One~~
 
Malcolm started Step Up last week. He is my only one doing the program.
 
~~TWO~~
 
The biggest thing is, despite my best efforts, the kid still isn't potty-trained. There might actually be some other issue going on here. We've moved beyond parental laziness to "What the heck?"
 
~~THREE~~
 
Thankfully, at Step-Up Michael is in his office two floors up so if Malcolm does need a change, he can get down there ASAP.
 
~~FOUR~~
 
My kids all hold their pencils wrong to write. They use their right hand, but hold their pencils like a lefty. I have tried to break them of this and have never succeeded. Michael does the same thing so maybe it's a losing battle.
 
~~FIVE~~
 
Margaret has decided that all my spider plants are girls. Because, hey, they are.
 
~~SIX~~
 
Speaking of Margaret, she told me yesterday that I am drunk a lot at school, but that's okay, no one minds. When I asked her why she thought this, she said because we often stop at the gas station to get my drink on the way. Ah-ha.
 
~~SEVEN~~
 
Do you own this amazing toy?
 
Symphony in B Music Toy
If we could only own two toys, this would be number two. It is without a doubt one of the best toy investments we have ever made. It's probably best for the under 5 crowd, but even the older boys will sit and mess around on it. Amazon has it for under $50 right now. I am not getting anything for promoting this item. It's just that awesome.
 
Number one toy of course would be Legos. Of course.

What is that amazing toy? There isn't a link and clicking on the picture doesn't take me anywhere. :)
