Who is running this place?

Dinner with Kate last night was a little challenging. If you consider screams, fits, and flying silverware a little challenging, then I guess we’d categorize it there, wouldn’t we? I have to admit, I was caught off-guard, as she was in a great mood leading up to dinner. Apparently there is nothing like a sit down meal to upset the order of the universe. When her glasses (which we just had to replaced, the 2nd pair in a year) went flying across the table, Kate went flying into time-out. Okay, she didn’t fly, but you get the point.

I set her in time-out in the adjacent room and then walked back to the table. Seconds later, Kate yells, “Now keep an eye on me Daddy!”

I just started reading your blog and I have to tell you I LOVE IT! I love reading other peoples stories of life, kids and what not... you are a terrific write and I love your sense of humor. Being a mother of 3 little ones I have to tell you that your post with the chicken bone really hits home. I too have experienced such dinner comedy if you will... with my 4 year old son. I look forward to reading more. By the way - I question daily who runs my house and usually I find that it is the kids LOL...
