So , I suppose I should update before my dear friend Heather reminds me how big of a wiennie I am !!! The thing is , I wanted to have this blog to write about the funny side of our lives, of course with 4 boys in a house you would think I have lots of funny thing to talk about... The funniest thing that happened today was when William wacked Sam in the forehead with a METAL baseball bat . Samuel was just laying on the couch minding his own business, doing what Sam does when he doesnt feel good, moan and groan ,and watch TV and moan and groan some more!!! Alex sleeps when he is sick . Sam moans and groans... He is just preparing for his life as a grown man... "I have a sore throat , honey, I am dying , please bring me some medecine and a kiss...." So of course, the incident wasn't that funny when you think about it...Sam had a goose egg, was moaning and groaning even more ( like that was really possible... just added tears to the equation ) . If you know me, I mean REALLY know me , you know that patience just isnt a quality of mine! So when Sam is sick, Ken usually takes care of him (they understand each other!) , but today, Ken went to work and I stayed home , with the kids and my parents who just flew in from France yesterday . I kept Sam pretty much drugged up , for his own sake... I just would tell him to suck it up and stop whining so being drugged up was probably better for him ( and my sanity!!!!) Only a week into summer vacation and i am ready to dial the looney bin's number.... Anyone there with me???

Oh honey I'm SO there with you!! We've had fights galore in the Michels household this past week & I'm not looking forward to the next 2 months.
Although it is nice to get more time with Sam, I didn't realize how much I've missed him while he's been at school.
I'm a no patience parent too, it's soooo hard when they get whiny to keep my temper in check.
UHG!

The looney bin turned me way weeks ago... apparently I was too crazy and they didn't want me bothering the other residents. haha

Could have have that number please? I'd like to put it on speed dial. The kids have 3 half days this week.

Loved the story.

I'll post Relay pictures soon. The children wore their t-shirts that you sent.

No worries Mimi, won't call you a weenie YET. I'm extending grace since everyone has me since I've been sick for like 3 wks and all my posts have been about barf and such. Hope you enjoy the family from France. Sorry about the bat hit to the head. That sux.

P.S. Looney bin ph# 1-800-Kids-Outta-School.....nuf said. See if they have any 2 for 1 deals this time of year and I'll join ya.

I have a "baby" in my house at the moment, my husband. He's been completely useless for 3 days now, with the same cold that I have. The same cold I've walked with both kids to the doctors office to, the same cold I've been cleaning the house with and taking care of the kids with, and.... you already got my drift! I'll meet you at that loonie bin!

You are in great company. There seems to be a rash of the honeymoon of school's out is over! I found the easiest way to handle this was to give up my unrealistic expectations. I don't expect anything and now things don't seem so bad.
