As you know, I'm not a particularly neat person. My desk and house both show that clutter doesn't really bother me. Things are clean, just never particularly organized. But with both kids showing a penchant for liking to get sick in the summer when supposedly kids are healthier, I am launching an all out war.
I am strategically placing hand sanitizers throughout the house and I am making an extra effort with Andy (and with Bjorn to work on him, too) to make sure we wash hands a lot. I am making an effort as well to put Meg's plastic toys in the dishwasher ever few days and wipe down her toys more often. It may not ultimately do any good, but it makes me feel better to know I'm doing something.
Meanwhile, here's a picture of both kids smiling at the same time. I then tried to zoom in and couldn't get either of them making a normal face at the same time. I will be grateful for these because I can envision that in a few short months Andy will have figured out how to pinch his sister just in time to make her cry for the camera.
After thinking about Sarah Palin being vice-president, I have decided it doesn't matter. No one ever asks a man, "But who will look after the children?" I can't personally imagine undertaking what she's undertaking, but that's her business, not mine. Now, does that make me get over her being pro-life, anti-gay and a creationist? Not so much.
