Life with Kids
Published on December 19, 2007 By lifehappens In Parenting
So I haven't posted a good kid article in a while and I realized that if I don't write it down...I forget the cool stuff. So here's some for each of them.

Girl has been sick. Very sick. The amount of snot coming out of that kid is astonishing. I understand why she felt so bad. My sinuses are in revolt and I dont' even have a fever! So the sinus drainage was making her sick to her stomach and cough non-stop. She sat on the couch with a box of tissues and every few minutes, she would blow her nose again....pretty soon she was surrounded by a drift of little white tissues. She went through a box of tissues in a day and a half. Poor kid. (side note, fever is gone today. horray!)

She wasn't eating either. She was just a vegetable, sitting (and blowing) So when she suddenly decided to ask for food in her congested little voice, I was happy to oblige. As I made her requested grilled cheese sandwiches, she babbled on about her food. "And Mommy, you know what? I'm glad you are making me a Girled Cheese sandwich 'cause I'm a girl and I don't want a boy cheese sandwich."
After all this time, I just now realized she thought it was a GIRL Cheese Sandwich.

For those of you in the know, HW will be returning home soon ("soon" being somewhat less than 2 months..plus or minus 8 weeks.) Boy is getting excited about the idea. He knows that HW will return home after Christmas and before Easter. Well, in his mind, he decided that that means on Dec 26th. So he has taken to praying.
"And *breath* Please keep my daddy safe and make him get to the airport on time so he can come home and make Mommy not late so we can pick him up when we are supposed to so he can come home for good......*breath*.....and etc etc.

His prayers are actually pretty cool. "Please bless the food that is on the table RIGHT NOW." (as opposed to any food that isnt' actually ON his plate) "Please help Mom feel good so Bryan can come over and play...or we can watch a movie" etc etc

What?  no religious icons in the cheese sandwich?  From the title I was expecting to hear about he latest visage of the virgin Mary.

Hope HW gets back sooner than later.

Seconded. (And I expected something similar to what Dr Guy described, too.)

Maybe that's why nobody has been reading this!

I love the girl cheese sandwiches! Your kids are hilarious, LH!

So glad that HW will be home soon. I understand about kids getting confused (and excited) about arbitrary dates they set in their minds. Orian is famous for that.

Hang in there. You are an amazing mom and woman, and I admire you!
