These “notes” are ideas for essays/longer posts. If you see one that you think would make a good essay/post or that you just want to see what I would do with it, please let me know in the comments or in an e-mail!
Do you want to know what makes me feel super smart and totally on top of things? Knowing where everything is. I love it when the boys ask where the green car is and I can say, “Go look under your bed.” And there it is. Or when Micah asks where that pen that he was using is. “Last I saw it, it was on the floor next to the bikes, almost under the toy box.”
But there are some exasperating moments as well. Like when the boys can’t find their pajamas even though they are sitting on the couch right next to them. Or when they say they can’t find the toy that is on the floor in the middle of the room. That’s when I realize that it’s not necessarily that I have magic powers so much as kids don’t have the discipline/focus to scan a room and remember what it is they are looking for.
And my little bubble bursts.
