Exhibit A: The Lost Sippy Cup
When he lost control of his sippy cup and it went flying through the air, it landed in the most unfortunate of places! Being a complete germ freak, to the point of being weirded out by my own toilet, I couldn’t rescue the cup. I thought about buying giant rubber gloves and a face mask, but that didn’t seem practical, so it sat there until Mark came downstairs and got it out.
Shock and horror! He was screaming “MOM!!! I was screaming, “MARK!”
Exhibit B: The Burned Duck
One day right before lunch, I pulled the mac and cheese noodles off of the stove and began to drain the water. When I turned around I found Elias holding this burned duck. It wasn’t until I looked at the stove (see the picture below) that I realized what happened. The duck had tried to learn how to fly, landed on the hot burner, and was rescued by my two-year old. How did I not see that???
Exhibit C: Burned Dinner
I did it! My head in hanging between my shoulders in shame. I burned out gourmet frozen pizza dinner. I get extra amazing points for this one. So here is my confession: We are NOT perfect!
