The singles' scene at Childcare

It's been a particularly horrendous day. Temper tantrums every time I turn around. After 24 hours without any sort of potty-mishap, T peed and pooped in her pants within 10 minutes of each other. While I cleaned her up, Charlie found the vat of vaseline and started eating it.

Whine, whine.

But it hasn't all been bad. First of all, I rocked Zumba today. I picked the two best people in the class to follow and just tried to keep up with them. It was really fun, even though I'm sure I looked like an idiot. (Given my pathetic lack of rhythm, I try to only Zumba at classes where I don't know anyone else.)

Then, I went to pick the kids up at childcare. The teacher handed me Simon's stack of papers and I flipped through them, pulling out one that said "Josephine" and set it on the counter. Next thing I knew, a little girl snatched it up and handed it back to Simon. IT HAS HER PHONE NUMBER ON IT.

Oh my. I hope Josephine's not waiting by the phone because my five-year-old will not be calling her any time soon.

PS, I planned on "retiring" Simon from my blog when he turned five, but I just couldn't keep this story to myself. Sorry.

Oh.My.Gosh. Hilarious. Cute little Josephine is probably already crying some tears at the lack of phone calls. And why retire Simon? I say keep his stories comin'! :) I'm sure his little life will still provide some fun lil stories and chuckles. :)

That's too funny! Kids are starting really young these days! I agree with shouldn't retire Simon! His stories are hilarious!

P.S. I don't know how you take care of three kids by yourself! You are definitely Supermom! ;)

Riley has become very into giving kisses -- on the lips -- at his sitter's house. She literally had to create a new rule -- "kisses are for mommies and daddies"-- because of my son. ;-)

haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Seriously laughing out loud! Love it! I don't think I'd have the courage to do that... you go girl! Hope you enjoy your week away from being a momma and enjoy being a beautiful sexy wife! Miss you guys! I'd be lieing if I said I wasn't a little bit jealous! Maybe in the future the four of us will have to do a fun vacation like that!
