I'm glad we become civilized...

because we sure don't come here that way. Let me just share what my very uncivilized little loves did today. My poor mom had the misfortune to have taken Miles to the potty at McDonald's. While they were waiting for a free stall Miles, who had been fighting his urge for about 30 minutes, lost the fight and his stinky job somehow came out of his underwear and out of his long jeans and on the floor. I'm not sure how that happened. Mom was not too happy with me for sending her to do such a dirty job. Tonight, Eli had an absolute and ugly fit when we did not have a second chocolate donut with sprinkles to give him. This is actually somewhat understandable (I love myself some Krispy Kreme)! And Ella has decided that her new hobby (or maybe habit?) is licking the chair legs in the dining room. I cracked myself up thinking about how crazy it would be if none of us ever learned to be civilized. What a daunting task it sometimes seems to be to help our children eventually outgrow their childishness!

Unfortunately, some adults still aren't civilized. I agree that it is a huge responsibility to teach our children how to function and be civilized while still being a good christian person.

You made me laugh out loud. You are definately right. Your story sounded strangely familiar. Brooks wet his pants in the car seat recently, and Reese loves to chew on my crocs....while I am wearing them!

I think we've all had to clean the poopy floor at one time or another. In fact, Peyton had an accident at my work a few weeks ago. Thankfully, it was in the bathroom on the tile and not on the carpet! 8^0 Also, he likes to lick things as well. Weird children.
