Dinner Delimma

We are at the dinner table tonight eating our lovely chocolate cake for dessert (a rare treat) when I look over and see Ben licking his finger and wiping the plate clean.  I say to Ben, “Ben please stop.” No response.  “Ben stop!”  No response.  “BEN! STOP NOW!”  By this time, the whole table is looking.  Ainsley was helping mommy by yelling at Ben to stop.  Madie was looking at Ben with dismay. Chris was laughing hysterically which did not help at all.  The laugh was so contagious that the whole table was laughing except mom and Madie (way to go, Madie!!).  Then Ben thought it would be funny to start licking the plate.  It just went downhill.  Chris did not help the situation.  I had to get on to him for antagonizing Ben into worse behavior.  He kept saying, “But it IS so boy and so funny! And the cake was really good!”  Finally Dad told Ben that he and Ben were in the minority and it would behoove them both to start living by the woman’s rules in this house.  When it is just him and Ben, it would be ok to lick the plate.  Great!  Thanks, Dad.  You were doing good until the end!

We planted a tree!

Our tree.

Thank goodness for the help.


He is our little "man of the house."

Not to be out done by her brother.

Anyone want to plant these trees!

We went to the event (eventhough I was reluctant because I had waaaay to much to do today, but there were tears . . . so we went) at our elementary school today.  It turned out to be a lot of fun.  The kids had a good time even if mom didn’t have enough coffee this morning.  We had not intended on planting a tree, but we just couldn’t turn down the opportunity once we got there.

Where was Dad when we needed him??!!!!  (at work, of course.) But Ben became the de facto “man of the house” and led us all!

Mental Note . . .

Don’t write notes on your hands if you ever intend to wash them.  It is lunch time and I just now realized that I still don’t have milk or bread.  I swear if I keep this up they will come to take my children from me!
