The Boys Spent the Night
Darius called yesterday, and using his most pitiful voice, he asked if he could spend the night. I had a weak moment and said "Sure. Bring your brother, too." That perked 'Mom' right up. You remember how it felt those few times when you found yourself without small off-spring.... great, huh! 'Mom' is going to get another break this weekend. One of her sisters is going to have the boys over for the weekend. It will be good exposure for the boys ("This is how an average families live. This is what an average family looks like...see, two parents. How about that, huh!")
I had already stocked the cupboards so I was good to go with house guests. I also had two squirt bottles at hand. Nothing like a warm day and water bottles to give active boys something to do.
Febreze... do you use it? I bought a jug of it recently and it seems to smell stronger, like cheap cologne added to water. Has anyone else noticed it?
Toilet bowl cleaner... what do you recommend for cleaning toilet bowls? Got any magic formulas? I've been using Comet, but its not cutting it.
