Good Thing I Cleaned!

I was cleaning the upstairs bathroom during naptime and heard the Fisher Price Little People) garage phone ringing incessantly. I called in and told him to knock it off. He talked and talked and talked out some explanation from the next room, behind the closed door. I finally marched in and told him it was nap time and to get back in bed.

Noah then informed me that he had just called Gramma, Grampa Jim, Pop, Granny, Grampa, Pop, Grandma Marcia and Gina on the garage phone and that they will all be here after nap time.

Whew! I've just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. No commentary out of deference to those who haven't yet read it. I'm spent and do not have it in me to do more than play with the boys. Which leads to my only other accomplishment today, the Triple Threat of Toddlers has been re-named not because there aren't three of them and not because they are not threatening from time to time, but because not one of them is still a toddler nor under three feet.

I give you: WHOA MAMA!

Where to Begin

Do I start my first blog post in months with:
  • Bermuda highlights (dinner by candlelight on a private beach)
  • News of boys swimming like fish
  • Sammy's first trip to choir camp
  • Pix of the boys & their cousins at the Children's Museum
  • The general PSA that the twins have crossed over into the "Reporter" phase, constantly peppering anyone around with the W's - Why, Where, When, Who, hoW???
  • Highlights of Julie, Mike and Ada's trip to CT (first B-Lo friends to venture out)
  • Upcoming news: More friends visiting (Kelly & kids)! Going to visit friends (Finn & Parents!!!) Of course Harry Potter!!
  • Gripe of miserable bedtimes
  • Tales of other parenting disasters (direct quote from the babysitter: "It's chaos here!")
OK - I'll start/end with the comical. In a public restroom the other day, I hear from Aidan in the next stall, "Mommy, my penis is growing"
