I was so proud of myself for posting here so regularly over the last 6 months or so. That may not seem like much of an accomplishment to a blogger of your status ("Micro-blogging since 2008!") but for me as an habitual "restarter" ("Sixteen different blogs started and stopped since 2008!) it was a big deal.
I wish work didn't get in the way of my otherwise hilarious life. My kids are pretty awesome, I'm just sayin'. Even the preschool/ daycare thinks my kids are the best. The teacher told me just the other day that she loves talking to C because you just never know what he's going to say. Apparently one of the first conversations she had with him went something like this:
Teacher: C, what happened to your tooth? (he's missing a front tooth from a bathtub accident, remember?)
C: It's gone.
Teacher: I see that. How did that happen?
C: One day it just flew away...
I wish he'd said that when the pediatrician asked but instead he went with the equally made-up, "My mommy threw me."
See? Hilarious life,
(well, only because CPS wasn't called...)

I recently discovered that C knows all the planets in our solar system - except Pluto, presumably because it wasn't in the app from which he learned. I casually mentioned Pluto today when he was pretending to be jumping from planet to planet and he burst out laughing. "Pluto's not a planet, Mom! Pluto is a dog in Mickey Mouse world!"

Remember when I used to talk about running away to join the circus? I still want to do that. My family would most likely be allowed to run away with me - check back on the particular day.

Here is my conversation with C on the way to school this morning:
C: Mom, can we make cookies tonight?
Me: Um, maybe. We'll have to see. We might have some other things to get done.
C: Ok. (pause) We can make cookies when you're stressed.
Yep, this kid gets me.
If you couldn't guess from the lack of a post here, I'm sure this conversation snippet makes it quite clear just how well I'm doing these days.
I am pro-desserts-when-stressed,
