All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

Who's the boss?
We have a large pantry cupboard in our kitchen. In an attempt to keep the kids from attaching themselves to my legs while I'm making supper, we cleaned out the bottom shelf of one side of this cupboard which gave them about a three-foot high little 'fort.'

The kids were playing in there yesterday, and I could hear the door slamming, which usually ends in somebody's fingers or toes or head being squished, so I went to investigate. Little G was the culprit this time, so I reminded him of the rule of no slamming the door when someone's in there.

Moments later, I heard the door slamming again (I know, shocking, they ALWAYS obey the first time, really...). I reminded Little G in a slightly stronger voice that he was not to slam the door. 'But A wants me to!' he protested.

I asked him who was the boss in this house. Right as he's hanging his head and saying "Mommy," I hear a little voice from behind the closed cupboard door:

"I boss!"

I think we're going to have our hands full with this one! ;)

I don't mind you borrowing them to tell cute stories about, but I would appreciate you returning my children. :)

Seriously, I think that my older child believes God gave him a younger brother as a scapegoat and taker of blame. My 2 year old does not mind, he just stands up and claims his power. I am feeling out numbered, but just when I am totally frustrated they make me laugh.

Enjoy this age. Such a fun time. And what a great idea about the fort. Do you have a picture? I would love to do this.
