I've learned a bunch

Today's writing prompt over at Absolutely Bananas is 10 things I've learned from my children. I've learned more from my kids than any class I ever took in college so it's a little difficult to narrow it down to just 10... but I'll give it a try.

1. It's amazing what you can solve with a calm voice and a quiet room and a cuddle. Or an ice cream cone.

2. Whoopie cushions, legos, matchbox cars, and hair ties go through the washer and dryer beautifully. Crayons do not.

3. I am the worst mommy EVER for 10 minutes out of every day... but I'm the best for the rest of the time.

4. As much as my children drive me crazy, I always miss them when I'm away from them.

5. Some children will wear "armies" long after they've learned to swim.

6. Never leave a child unattended... ever... unless you want a great photo opportunity for your blog.

7. Always look before you sit down. Always.

8. Boredom is the catalyst for creativity.

9. Boys are gross.

10. I have an unending amount of love and forgiveness in my heart. So do my kids.

I believe that boys were made because moms would need blog fodder!!! LOVE the photos on this post :)

Aw, what a wonderful mixture of silly and sweet. :) Just like life with kids, I suppose.

Great list and awesome photos!

Boys ARE gross! I have two boys and my two-year old thinks that "tooting" is the funniest thing EVER.

I grew up in a house full of girls, so raising boys is teaching me A LOT!

Isn't #4 amazing. As much as I countdown the minutes until I can get away for a few hours, the second they're gone I'm missing them again.
