Packing Practice

The boys packed their own bags for tonight's overnight trip to Grandma's. I checked Jackson's results and found 2 pairs of pants, a Nerf gun, two Angry Birds figures, and some toothpaste (no toothbrush, mind you).
Matthias came in a bit better, if not excessive, at 5 pairs of socks, 4 pairs of pajamas, 2 t-shirts, a stuffed dog, and a helicopter.

Mama Andretti

Jackson, as I drove him and his brother across town: "Well, Matthias, what do you think about the fact that our mom drives so much slower than our dad?"

I am officially not the cool parent.

Laundry with Lindsey

On today's installment of "Laundry with Lindsey," we try to figure out why there was a Koosh ball stuffed in the sleeve of Lindsey's sweatshirt, how a pair of Dad's exercise shorts ended up velcroed to Matthias's coat, and why a rogue pair of undies was stuck on Jackson's coat.

Who does our laundry? Can't Mom sort properly? And just how long will it be before a load of whites finally comes out purple? Stay tuned.

Luxury Living

I'm standing in my laundry room with a glass of chocolate milk, a Netflix show playing on my iPod, my ironing, a massive pile of socks that needs folded, more laundry waiting in the dryer, and another load that needs put away.

I tell ya, this is living.

And for my next order of business...

Matthias is using his magnifying glass to study the "cactus hair" on my legs.

I guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

And He's Stuck with Me

I'm making Thom find me a ring tone for my phone that's just an ordinary ring. I don't care enough to learn how to look up my own ringtones. The look on his face tells me he's pretty sure he married the wrong person.

To Tell the Truth

Me: Matthias, did you use my toothbrush? Is that why it's here? (I'd found it on the TV stand.)

Matthias: No. I was just cleaning some rocks.
