"Mommy, you didn't sign off on my reading homework! I can't sign for you... (says the 7 year old - who has been caught signing for me before on his homework), so I guess I'll just have to read with Ms. Q. I like her. Did you know that my teacher is part Indian, part German, part Irish, part American? She's part everything! But she's not a Leprachaun."

Now that Xav is on his bus I wander through the house to look for Austin, who should have been walking up the hill to school 10 minutes ago. When I tell him that, he looks at me and than spends the next 5 minutes wandering around in a mimed slow motion. He even insisted on mimicking everything I said in slow motion back to me.

No matter how cranky they can get on the way out the door, they always pause long enough for hugs and kisses. And than they vanish into the big wide world of pencil shavings, lunch boxes, chewed on books, dented desks and chalk boards. 6 hours and 48 minutes left for me to get papers filed, notices posted, rent receipts wrote, bank run, laundry washed, random maintenance parts ordered..... all before they arrive back home again.

You should paper mache that Cope Jar. Shall I make you one?

Of course you should. Might want to make me a spare too.... in case the first one gets "accidentally" broke.

    RANTINGS
    FROM
    THE
    TIME
    OUT
    CORNER.....

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
