1.) Sam has a new hobby. He makes potions
in near the sink, using water, milk, instant oatmeal, dish soap, and coffee grounds (GASP! NOT MY STARBUCK’S CHRISTMAS BLEND!!!) He calls it “hair growth formula,” and has no regard for the puddles and crumbs he leaves on the countertop, on the floor, near the couch, and under the toaster. (Positive side note: thus far, he has not attempted to apply it to his or anyone else’s head.)
2.) Abby cleans her room and the always-trashed basement playroom while singing at the top of her lungs and without being asked (NTTAWWT.) I think this may have something to do with the whole “Santa Is Watching” thing.
3.) We recently had new facilities installed in the bathroom. Whenever Hannah has a friend over, her first activity is to lead The New Bathroom Tour and to invite her friend to flush the new “turbo flush” toilet.
4.) She refers to the new commode as “Mr. Happy Toilet.”
5.) Abby and Hannah have decided that it’s cool to hang out in the new tub. They each choose an end, line the tub with bath towels, stretch out their legs and relaaaax. There’s nothing exciting or different about this tub — it’s just your basic plain white model — but it’s new and they feel the need to break it in. Every dry-tub visit ends with both girls screaming and crying because they inevitably kick each other in the head, while fighting for leg room.
Under normal circumstances, I would wait until I had a solid list of 10 things before posting this, but Christmas is in nine days and I need to go to Starbuck’s.
I’m out of Christmas Blend.
