Assorted Notes

DD#1, thank you for allowing me to load the dishwasher for you last night while you sat at the computer. And for allowing me to unload/reload and run it today while you laid your butt in the bed, even though you know you are on kitchen detail. See also my comment to your brothers.

DD#3, thank you for volunteering to fix lunch today while I pumped milk and fed the baby, but only if I let you cook exactly the meal you chose, which happened to be something I am planning for an evening meal.

DD#2, thanks for watching the movie and not picking up the baby even though she was crying while I tried to do ……whatever I was trying to do, I forget, but I think it was pumping.

(end sarcasm)

Dear boys, thank you for not complaining when it was well past lunch time, and I said we’d have crackers and cheese sticks. I appreciate that you did not complain, though frankly, you got screwed.

DD#4 thank you for going to sleep when I picked you up and put you in your bed in desperation at quiet time today, even though I am not supposed to lift you at all.

DD#5, thanks for growing at such a phenomenal rate, even though it means I can think of little else except milk.

Now, if it’s okay with you all, I think I’ll take a shower, probably cold, since the dishwasher and washing machine are both running. Perhaps I’ll be a little less hacked if I am clean.
