Points to ponder

Ok, so today was my first day back at work after a lovely summer off. For those of you who are unaware, I teach pre-school to 60 3 and 4 year olds. As horrifying as this might sound, it is actually a ton of fun. Every day is like an episode of "Kids say the Darnedest things". But, because of the overwhelming brain power it takes for me to make it through the first day of school (remember, I have to learn ALL of their names, 60 kids, and I can barley remember my own 3) I have no energy left for a funny story this evening. However, I have a few random thoughts I would like to put out there for you all to ponder. Enjoy...

Why is it that no matter how much water my children use when brushing their teeth, they ALWAYS leave toothpaste in the sink?

How is it that my husband can always rile the girls up to the point of crazy, and then mysteriously disappear just before their bedtime?
Am I really the only person in my house that can correctly identify an empty toilet paper roll?

No, the laundry does NOT do itself.

That big machine under the counter, next to the sink, turns out the dishes have to go into it in order to get clean. The cleaning does not happen by metamorphosis from the counter, I know it's shocking.

Is it wrong that I can quote "High School Musical "1 and 2 verbatim? Or worse, that I agree with the girls and think Zac Efron is dreamy?

For some reason, the bath mat insists on jumping back off the side of the tub after anyone in the house uses it. I am the only one who can make it stay, weird.

Same goes for bath towels, towel racks are tricky little devils.

No one ever wants to talk to me, unless I am watching TV. Thank you Lord for Digital cable.

Now I must go, tuck the girls into bed for the 17th time. Hence the comment about Tom riling them up, Dad strikes again! But don't judge him too harshly, he is currently online saving the world with his brother, one video game at a time.

I seriosly don't know where we would be without the boys saving the world. And they take their job so seriously. I guess we can all rest easier knowing they are doing their thing.

Isn't it Tom's turn anyway to be the topic of a blog . . .

In my defense, my brother and I are not saving the world one video game at a time we only play the one. As most men know it is not easy finding new and entertaining ways of annoying our wives. There are only so many times you can leave the toilet seat up and cause your wife to fall into the toilet before you become concerned that you will in fact either, find you wife stuck in the bowl the next morning or have to carry her to the emergency room because you have finally fractured her tail bone. I am perfectly happy wearing the same dirty clothes week after week, I find with a good rotation you can make it a good six weeks before you feel too dirty to wear those socks again. I am currently working on a plan to have random piles of dirt appear whenever I leave the house, I will keep you all informed.

A New point to ponder, if Tom isn't leaving the random piles of dirt around the house that are already there, who is?
