The two big boys took the cookies that they were enjoying for desert right before bedtime and put them on the floor and stomped them into ant sized bites so that they could vacuum them up. It was sweet boy #1’s idea. He loves to vacuum. But this was too much for our child friendly vacuum so I ended up having to do it. Aaaarg!
I, being terribly arachnophobic, did something that I never thought I was capable of. All three boys had been destroying a stump with sticks and encountered several bugs. I looked down and there on the face of my smallest boy was a big spider. I rushed to his rescue and swiped the offending Arachnid from his sweet cheek with my bare hand! Bravery, thy name is Kristen! He never even knew that it was there.
This a great victory after that time that I spotted a spider on the blanky my first baby was lying on and immediately fled across the lawn, only to realize that I had abandoned my wee offspring. Of course I returned and cautiously rescued him. But my personal cowardice was truly embarrassing.
But no longer, I have been a mom for enough years that my instincts to protect outweigh personal terror. Yeah me!
But the winner this week.
