That's MY Rutabaga!

It's currently After-Lunch-Quiet-Time at our house. I've recently decided to reinstate it.

All three children were in Princess' room playing. I didn't know what they were doing until Professor came out just now and said "Mom, do you know what we're playing in there?"

"Nope."

"Iron Chef America. And the secret ingredient is vegetables."

"That sounds like fun!"

Then he ran back to the room. I smiled at the creativity and harmony that was reigning in our home.

Not one minute later, Princess started crying. Professor came out to tell me that Lion had just been hitting her over the head with the chef's hat. It turned out that they both were fighting over the same vegetable. I'm glad that the chefs in the real Kitchen Stadium don't do this. Although, it would make for an even more interesting show..."The challenger is beating Iron Chef Mario Batali over the head with a radish after they both reached for the same head of cauliflower."

Excuse me while I go scream--





Ok, all better now.

You have one of a toy and every child wants it. It's a given. Specially if you have 30 of another toy, they'll want the one you only have one of even more!

Ever seen "Yes, dear"? Baby fight club. That's all I'm saying about that. Hilarious oreo scene.

I'm glad to hear another mommy today wanted to tear their hair out. I'm having "worst-mama-of-the-year" blues.

I hate to admit it, but sometimes screaming feels really good (unless you do it till your throat hurts).

Wishing you more peace....
