So That Someday I Don't Forget...

my morning in a nutshell. Ethan decided to wake up about 45 min. earlier than the other kids this morning and wanted to play basketball. I tried to give him milk in a sippy and he wanted absolutely nothing to do with it, only in a bottle. That's a battle for another day...We got Trey off to school, breakfast eaten and then bathtime for Avery and Ethan (this usually gives mommy a few min. to pick up a little around the house while they play nicely in the tub) Today Avery decided to torment her brother and make him stand by the edge and scream to get out. Avery and Ethan were all dressed, laundry put away, and the house was straightened, yay! All the was left was for mommy to have a few peaceful min. to get a shower. About half way through my shower i heard something break outside the door and then i her Avery bawling. I peak out to see Avery standing there holding her tea set plate that Ethan had broke into about 6 pieces.Avery calms down with the reassurance that daddy can fix anything with superglue. I then hear screaming again, this time i poke my head out to see Avery with blood all over her hands (ok this is where i panic a little and get a little light headed) I grab a washcloth and hold it on and see that it's a minor cut and that i'm not going to have to rush to the er with shampoo in my hair. Ethan had tried to grab a piece of the plate from her and it cut her. Amazingly i got to finish my shower and then it was lunch time... have i mentioned that the smell of hot dogs and catsup make me want to vomit, but when you are in a hurry...Got Avery off to school, Ethan fell asleep in the car on the way home and AHHH i am off to relax...
