always be honest, except for when you lie

life is in the details

A short time ago I spilled a container of cake sprinkles. Pink Piggies, Blue Whales (or Whalies, if you like), Yellow Duck (ies) and multi colored dinosaurs. To preserve my sanilty I was careful to sweep up every. freakin'. crumbly. bit. Else my Three year old would, with his See-It-from-Space Vision, discover even the broken back end of a purple dinosaur. Even if said Tyrannosaurus Rex bottom were poking out ever so slightly from under the fridge. Even if the lights were out and he was running through the room as fast as he can with his Running Socks on.

And my day would go on and on forever should such a sighting take place.

Mommy, may I have some sprinkles like those kind with the DInoSAURS and the DUCKies what swimmed in the ICE CREAM that time, remember! Mommy, may I have ICE CREAM??? Chocolate ICE CREAM but wiff SPIRNKLES on it but not the FLOWER sprinkles just the DINOsaur sprinkles! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaase Mommy pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaase!!!

Repeat eight thousand times, then bed, then drinks for mommy, then mommy is a drunk.

It's important to be thorough, you see, when completeing household chores.
