Should I be more concerned?
Are they akin to gnats? If so then I think Cole's probably the carrier. Remember all those half eaten bananas my parents left around? Nothing draws the gnats like exposed banana.
I checked Cole's hair and found nothing though, but I didn't really know what I was looking for in the first place, right? I assume a small bug looking thing? All I saw were hair and scalp while I was forced to listen to Cole's tale about how he thought bugs really were living in his hair because he heard them talking to him.
Should I be checking my child for multiple personalities or some form of crazy also? If found would he still be permitted to attend pajama day tomorrow with Mother Goose? It's crucial that I have a break from the chatter all his people are giving me recently. The child never, ever stops talking. I listened to a 40 minute story while running errands today about a frog in the forest that had lasers and blew up rocks. Oh. Dear. Lord.
Wait...could that be caused by nits?
It seems like I have a lot to Google.
One more quick story.
I can't believe I've been holding on to this gem for so long. This hangs next to my bed, a reminder of what amazing kids I have, and how amazing I want to be for them. (Though I feel I deserve some sort of pass during their arguments over whether or not Cole can jump our six foot fence, or during a long explanation/narrative on the characters of Star Wars.)
While decorating for my birthday party, I became completely overwhelmed by the list of to-do's, the constant interruption my children were providing, and the dwindling clock which was making my stress level soar. Aiden bounced a ball right in to my work space and I completely snapped at him. I couldn't believe how harshly I told him to get away.
I felt awful. I went to talk to him and apologized for the way I had spoken. He came to see me a few minutes later with this note.
Translation, "I forgive you 35 Mom. I love you 35 Mom" Repeat.
They sure do talk a lot and bounce balls at in appropriate times and test my every shred of patience and self control....but geez this sort of stuff is pretty amazing.
Now, what's a nit?
By the way, if any of you are friends of mine on Facebook, apparently FB hasn't let me post anything other than photos on my wall for the last few weeks. Would you mind reposting the link to the blog on your page? I keep getting emails from people asking why I am not blogging anymore. Spread the word, I do still exist!
Well, as much as someone unable to share their Facebook status can exist.
