PRIORITIES & THE PEANUT BRITTLE WAR

I'm BAccckkkkkk!
I was gone a week and it feels like 10!
I have a lot to say.
I have a lot to do.

I've got 10,000 loads of laundry.
I have a refrigerator to clean out.
I have a pile of mail to go through.
I have a pioneer trek to plan.

I even have two care packages to get together and mail out.
Wait! Didn't they just leave?
What could they possibly need?

But first, I have to color my hair.
I HAVE MY PRIORITIES!

Oh and in case you thought my life would be quiet and boring....
I still have Tiny Baby at home.
And he takes after his brothers.

We were spending a nice quiet evening at home with Tiny Baby and some fresh popped popcorn
when he opened my nightstand drawer and saw this -
A tussle ensued.  He wanted some. 
I am hoarding it and I hate to share!
Yeah, I feel guilty for leaving him for a week, but not THAT guilty.
Yeah, I've had it for over a month and haven't eaten it.
Yeah, I can get more.
We wrestled.
I won.

About 15 minutes later, my cell phone started ringing.
Sighing, I got out of bed and went in search of the phone.
I heard an evil laugh as Parker ran past me and to the bedside table, opened the drawer and seized the unguarded candy.

Caller ID Display on my phone:
"Home."
The little brat lured me away from the treasure with a well placed phone call.
Brian, always supportive, laughed from his side of the bed -
"Good one Parker.  Nice!" was the only discipline out of his mouth.

Some things never change!

Mom's have to hide the good stuff for ourselves. It's cheaper than therapy.

In all honesty... it's SEES candy... the boy had to resort to desperate measures. Can you really fault him? -J
