this was my putting the kids to bed tonight:
9yo [singing]: tractor! gonna see a chiropractor! he’s gonna fix my backtor! [dies laughing and rolling around on the bed]
[sidenote: clearly i need to rethink letting them watch the fairly oddparents]
6yo [as i tell her to get off the covers and under them]: booty up in the air! booty down on the ground! booty booty all around! [dissolves into giggling fit]
so i have barely woken up and am in the bathroom. the kids have spent most of the weekend playing “clubhouse” in our closet. (yes, the same closet that the 9yo ran away to live in. clearly our closet is fascinating beyond what i can see.) i sit down and then i hear CRASH from the closet. half naked, i jump up and throw open the door in time to see the back wire rack shelving that 1/3 of our clothes are on has come out of the wall and nearly landed on the kids. 9yo is crying about her toe, but 6yo is relatively calm. apparently 9yo was trying to climb up on a bench/storage box we have in there and held onto the rack to pull her 65+ lb self up on it. thankfully no one was hurt, but our closet is wrecked and daddy – who has done an awesome job of taking care of the kids while i was out of town – now has to spend the day fixing the rack.
so how was YOUR morning? *sigh*
