I really need to find the ear plugs.

We brought the imp back home from Grandma and Grandpa's house yesterday.  And the kids have been fighting all day today.  I get it--the imp hates sharing toys, and the pixie is teething and cranky as hell. 

I've got another two hours before the pixie goes to bed, and two and a half or so before the imp does.  To make things even more fun, the imp has to be reminded to put a bite of his supper in his mouth, then chew it up and swallow it (otherwise, he either ignores his food, or sits there holding the bite in his mouth).  At least the pixie doesn't have to be reminded to eat, or how to eat. 

As soon as they're done eating, I'll give the pixie her acid blocker and her ibuprofen, then plonk both of 'em in the tub.

  1. I'm not supposed to be glad I only have one. But right now, I am.

    1. When they get along, it's so cute it'll give you cavities.

      Most of the time, though...

    1. I never drink...wine. A large bourbon or scotch, on the other hand, is definitely an option.

  3. Wow. I think you’ve got your hands full there. I think you do need to buy some quality ear plugs soon to keep you sane. Haha! Kidding aside, wearing earplugs is good for the ears, since these devices protect our ears from harmful loud noises. However, I don’t think it’s advisable to shut out the noises made by your children, since you might not be able to attend to their needs if you can’t hear them. That’s the beauty and the hardship of being a full-time parent. >_<

    1. We use hearing protection when we need it. What we have doesn't totally shut out the kids--just tones it down to levels that don't make me want to bang my head into a wall until I pass out, just to get away from the noise.
