Weekend Assignment #147

Blogfather, John Scalzi  assigned a sign generator for the weekend assignment. 

Mine is above.  

It is a 'caution' only.  I adore my kids.  Wouldn't trade them for the world, but some weeks... they really do wear me and Hubby down!

In my update from yesterday, I forgot to mention that Fuzzy fell down three stairs Thursday night, onto the metal bar of the dog gate and had to get x-rayed on Friday at the pediatric orhtopedist.  

Thankfully, no break, but he couldn't go up the ladder to his bed that night, and he slept with me and kept me awake with each moan as he rolled over. 

Of course, I did get lots of hugs and being told 'I love you, Mommy' this week.  So, it all works out in the end!

And, last night after Hubby and I left for dinner, my three kids instantly descended into a major brawl that their Grandma had to break up, with the youngest, sweet Pumpkin, being the most difficult of all.  Yeah, their guest friend was smart enough to leave the room and let Grandma sort it all out and then allow the dust to settle before he re-engaged in the play date.  Ugh.

So, again, it is just a caution... I am sure I did the same sometimes to my parents.  Actually, I know I did, but there was only one of me... and there are three of them!  LOL

Thanks John, always fun...

be well,
Dawn

LOL..cute, Dawn.  Having three of my own, life was never, ever dull when they were small.  My two girls were always fighting; my son was always teasing them and getting them mad.  He still teases.  They do wear you out but they grow up.  Sad because it's nice to see them all independent but the holidays just are sort of blah.  HUGS Chris

Love the sign.  I know what you mean, there are some days........left un-said.  But I too wouldn't change a thing.  It makes life worth living.  :)

that sign hit the core of parenting  lol!
I agree with you, most days, kids remind us that we were young once.
Wonderful entry,
Gem :-)
