The Count

My kids like Sesame Street. When we were on our school break, they saw it pretty much daily. Every single one of them can go, "Mwah Ha Ha!" just like the Count.
Last night at dinner, Squeaky Bean started chucking food off her tray, which is my cue to get her out. As I picked her up, she either deliberately kicked or accidentally knocked her tray, so the whole thing went down, pasta, brussel sprouts and all. I was super irritated at yet another mess to clean up and was fuming as I washed Squeaky's hands in the sink.
Then, from behind I heard Junior Mint say in the Count's voice, "One messy floor! Mwah Ha Ha!"
Perfect timing for comedy relief. I was chuckling about it all night.

I LOVE it! Yay for laughing during the times we want to scream! And Yay for the kids who help us do that!

Junior Mint needs to come count my floors, there are at least 3 messy floors every day....

Junior Mint can count Brussels sprouts as he helps pick them up! And count hugs as his mom lets him know how grateful she is for him.

I love kids. Just when you think you may want to throw them back, they delight you all over again! We ended up homeschooling again...we're all happier and better off that way I think! My kids were gone at school so much for a few weeks that I absolutely missed all their antics and creativity!

Kids are so much fun.. We are at the chucking the food off the tray stage too. I think that it is funny. Colton will get the food he chucked off the tray later and eat it if I do not get to it first.

Thank goodness for laughter. What a great sense of humor.
