  1. Henry informed me today that he "cleaned the sink. Now it is sparkling clean." Really what he did was coat it with a layer of handsoap and run a little water on it. I still haven't gotten all of the soap off, but I did have a hard time explaining why rubbing soap on a sink wouldn't make it clean.
  2. Just before we had to leave the house Henry decided that he wanted some applesauce. He insisted on opening it himself. I was distracted putting back all of the food he had removed from the pantry in order to get to the apple sauce. When I looked up he had sprayed about 1/3 of the container onto his shirt.
  3. He also requested a bowl of cereal. When we didn't have anything that appealed to him he said, "Mommy, there is a new kind of cheerios with different colors. It's just like Kellogg's Fruit Loops. I saw it on the TV and they said it was really healthy." Sigh. We had a little chat (not our first either) about truth in advertising.
  4. He told me his head hurt after I mentioned that I was going back to the headache doctor. He said that he needed a bag of frozen peas to make his head feel better. (We sometimes use frozen vegetables as a temporary ice pack in our house). Henry then proceeded to spend a good chunk of the afternoon and then later in the evening with a bag of Edamame placed on top of his head.

I cannot, for the life of me, open a foil-lidded package without getting some on me. Kudos to Henry for only wearing a third of the applesauce.

I ALWAYS splurt yogurt on myself; more when I'm wearing a delicate white shirt at work and opening a yogurt for "lunch" at my desk.

I was really hoping the photo was of Henry wearing the edamame, not just the package, because the image in my head made me laugh out loud.

Good luck with the neurologist.

Excuse me, but I think that rubbing soap on a sink DOES make it clen. Shit - at least I hope so.

I hope that a whole week of no posts means that things are going boringly RIGHT in NY.


p.s. that note up there says I can use HTML tags (which I don't really know), but it won't let me!
