Great for adults.
Not so good for 2-year-olds.
And how would I know? Well, today in the midst of the older kids and I working on some projects Abigail, Jeremiah, and Rachel were keeping themselves busy. When a 4-year-old is in charge, it's never a good thing.
First, they got into the locked bedroom and dumped out the entire, neatly organized container of hair ties. We use those teeny tiny clear ones. There were about 500 on the floor. Ugh... Oh, yeah...and they also opened Joshua's container of teeth that he has lost. It's a little weird to be asking your young children where their older brother's teeth are as you desperately search a giant pile of hair accessories.
After the hair tie incident the Three Stooges managed to find my envelopes of neatly organized printed photos. We have thousands of photos on our computer, but only a few printed out. Today every hard copy we own was spread out over the floor...no longer organized.
And sometime in the middle of these endeavors, someone opened the bag of wasabi peas. Joshua and Hannah were introduced to them last night and Jer decided he wanted to try them this morning. I have no idea how many he ate. What I do know is that he walked into the bedroom chomping on a mouth full.
"Aren't they spicy?" I asked him.
"No. They just sting my tongue," he replied.
And now I know something else about wasabi peas that I wish I didn't. I won't go into any detail, but I will say that I changed a lot of diapers this afternoon.
This parenthood thing will either give me a stronger stomach or mold me into an incredibly picky eater.
