2. Watching TV
These are officially the only things that can consume their attention and/or curb their fantastically creative minds long enough for me to do something of semi-lasting value. Like change a load of laundry from the washer to the dryer, sweep the kitchen floor, address and stamp bills, bake a cake, or empty the dishwasher.
Anything that turns my head away from my 3 year old and 18 month old for longer than 9 seconds results in what I can only assume is a desperate plea for my attention. I can come up with no other reason for why Knox would want to grab handfuls of dirt from the front porch planter and transport it to the bathroom floor. Or why Pursy would think that taking the egg shells FROM the garbage and putting them BACK in the egg carton of whole eggs in the fridge is helpful.
Both of these desperate pleas for my attention occurred today.
Thus the dishwasher is half emptied. The rest of the dishes are waiting in the sink, however the bathroom floor is freshly swept and the egg shells are back in the garbage. And right now, they are running around the backyard "doing yard work Mama!" with the sprinkler and two brooms. Grant will be so relieved that he has one less chore to do when he gets home tonight...
