Just when I think my kids can’t get any kookier, they go and prove me wrong. Take Connor, for example. How often do YOU walk into the kitchen to find your teenager eating cereal from a doll potty? When I asked him, “Why? Why?” he looked at me and said, matter-of-factly, “No clean bowls.” Okay….
So I turned around to where Addison was standing at the sink doing dishes, and singing while she works, like she ALWAYS does…only she doesn’t always look like this when she washes…
And then there’s our first-born prankster. I went to the freezer to get some ice and was disturbed by its creepy color, until I turned around and saw Chandler grinning. I’ve got to hide that food coloring.
But he also reminds me that every once in a while, we just need to jump for joy. They all do. They’re great at thinking outside the box, trying new things (or old things in new ways) and making even the most mundane tasks fun. So again, today, I’ll try to learn something from each of them. And I’ll smile.
