My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.

When Does School Start?

The Captor's Log- Day #2 of Confinement:

The captives are becoming increasingly restless. The Big One is the most demanding of the two, (as the Small One can easily pacified with food or a stuffed animal). The Big One wants "activities"... always, always screaming for activities. What could she possibly mean? I have taken her swimming, to the park, to the bank, to the drugstore, and to Wal-Mart 3 times. What more could she be wanting? I even let her stay up as late as she wanted to watch junk-tv!

And the talking... Big One is never quiet. I asked her yesterday, "Have you ever had a thought you didn't let go?". That was answered with a blank stare and comments on Pokemon and how they should be revered as supreme beings.

Almost all the food stores are gone. The Big One has the appetite of a COW. Tomato soup, grilled chicken, leftover Chinese food- all gone. And that was just lunch!

The Small One has also eaten everything within reach. She prefers fuzz from the rug, paper, and cat hair. Experience tells me that milk and rice and fruits and veggies are much better for her. I think the fuzz makes her poop a lot more too. Darn that insoluble fiber!

The captives are here, watching me. I almost feel like perhaps I am the captive... They are slowing taking over control, and I am giving in to their every command.

Maybe I should start digging an escape tunnel!

I can't believe school is out already. We get out June 21st. We have a few extra days due to snow. Time to teach Faith a hobby, like how to knit, or something that takes time and focus. Good luck!

I've taken the MC to work with me all week. I am so glad he has to go to summer school this year!! We'll send you a spoon so you can get busy on that tunnel, but in case you decide to just stick it out...good luck!

NO NO NO!!! Don't tell me that it gets more difficult. I really thought that Estella would be easier to entertain when she got older. LOL Good luck making it through the summer.

Thanks for the offer, but I think Im done planting flowers for a very long time!!!! LOL!!!

Kelly said...

I agree with supermom...teach her to knit! =) I can't imagine how challenging it must be to entertain 2 energetic children. I have my hands full with one! You're a bright lady, though, so I know you'll do a stellar job keeping the girls enriched.

I suggest camp! That's what I want to do the MC... k
