Today, I believe

- Underwear is over-rated. At least on 2 year olds. She can't be bothered and, while at home, either can I.

- Being a good neighbor is hard. Sometimes I just don't want to.

- Picking berries with children means 3 very stained and happy kids and very few berries that actually make it home.

- Everything could be made better by bacon or strussel topping.

- The 3ed kid's life looks way different from the first kids. Pretty sure I should never get to kid #7 because they wouldn't make it through the first year of life. I would misplace them somewhere or they would be dismembered by a sibling, by accident of course.

- I can tell how good of day my children had by how many outfits they go through.

- Sleeping naked is the only way to go in the summer.

-Pets teach children a lot of things including that just because it is on the floor doesn't mean it isn't' good to eat and licking is an appropriate greeting in most situations

-I have no idea what to do with a sink full of apples from our tree. I have more to come. Anyone need some apples?

- Never ask a child why they are sticky. Just wash them and assume the worst.

- Drunk people and toddlers have a lot in common: both require hands going up stairs, they both get a kick out of dancing naked on the table, neither have good control of body functions, you can only understand about half of what they say, and they both cry for no good reason.

- If you come over and I have nothing freshly baked it has been a bad week
