Nothing happened this week.

July 17, 2009

Really. Not a single funny parenting anecdote to share. The kids wake up, we take them to daycare, we go to work, we pick them up, we do our evening routine, everybody sleeps. Repeat.

Here’s a story from last week.

Molly usually gets Patrick and Alex dressed in the morning. Last Wednesday morning, she pulled out Alex’s clothes and started getting Patrick dressed. “Alex,” she said. “Can you put your clothes on, please?”

As she started wrestling Patrick’s clothes on, Alex answers back from his bed: “Mommy, stop controlling me!”

To think, this time a year ago, he was barely speaking in sentences.
