We All Have Our Thing

Our moment of indulgence.

That little thing that just seems to float our boat.

A guilty pleasure?  Today I realized, as a mother, I can possibly cut down on 50% of the whining in our home if I can deliberately seek out this one thing for each of my children and their father in order to oil those squeaky SQUEAKY wheels!   Here's my list, from youngest:

Avery:  a piece of gum and a sippy full of something to sip
Hazel:  the nightgown she got at Christmas always washed and ready to wear ALL the time
Lucy:  paint her nails (and this is not a one time deal, she's a nail biter)
Seth: just stay home, just never ever leave the house to go anywhere
Dr. Gooch:  um...he likes...donuts?



Do you think I can do it?

As Bob the Builder says, YES YOU CAN!

Hmmm, never ever leave the house? That makes procuring donuts and finger nail polish and gum difficult. What is it with babies and gum? The Deuce are obsessed.

At least you know exactly what makes your littles and your Gooch happy.

Well, maybe home made donuts. House paint for nail polish. Gum....soaked wheat kernals. There you go, never leave home!

What's yours? Having guests? or maybe Finding unique places?

Do you remember this commercial? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwfrBbNo5Jg

It seems like a very apt euphamism. "well the kids are down...Time to make the donuts."
