The other day Joey packed a bag filled with ‘treasures’- like a plastic lion, golf ball, a few trucks, a spoon, etc. He insisted on wearing rain boots and sun glasses. He also grabbed the play keys. Pretending to need to leave, he said goodbye to me and his animals and turned go. Then he raised his voice to high a pitch and yelled, ‘WHERE IS MY PHONE? I NEED MY PHONE!!!” He got increasing frantic, tearing through the house almost screaming. “HELP ME FIND MY PHONE!!!!” I was a little convicted. Apparently I need to come up with a less stressful ‘leaving the house’ routine.

· So instead of journaling or keeping a baby book for my kids, I randomly write down cute and funny, quirky things they say or do and send them to my family or post them on facebook. It's sometimes fun to look back and see the memories and how much the kiddos have grown. I guess this is Joey and Guy's year in Facebook Status Updates. "The days are long but the years are short."
· Parenting toddlers kicked my butt today. A low point came after I placed Joey in his room for his 6th irrational temper tantrum of the day and then caught Guy dipping a paint brush in the toilet and "painting" the bathroom in toilet water. Jan 29
