Don't Worry, he tells me...

Pink Eye! My little one has pink eye (in both eyes)! Don't let me worry you, however, he is feeling just fine. This morning shortly after waking up at 7:00 am, Austin looked at me and said,

"Mom, this is a great book. Can you read me this great book?"

Austin, Mommy is still a little tired, let me read it to you in just a little bit, okay?

"Don't worry, mom, I'll just ask Dad to read it. Dad is a really good reader. Did you know that he knows how to read?"


A few hours later, I was working on end of the year scrapbooks for the children in my class. Austin grabbed my box of glue sticks.

"Mom, he said, I just need to play with these for just a little while."

Austin, I need for you to wait just a minute so I can get you paper and something to glue.

"Don't worry, mom, I am going to be real gentle."
Trust me, Austin, it is not the gentle that I worry about. It is wondering how many spider man fruit snacks are going to be glued to my coffee table.


And just a few minutes ago, I was trying to clean my shower. Austin bounded in and cheerily asked,

Mom, can I help you?

Sure, buddy, but let me... and as I turned around I saw it. Austin was is covered in black sharpie marker. I mean covered. Even the bottom of his feet are colored a dark black.

My voice was loud! Austin, what did you do?

Oh, mom, Don't Worry!

Oh, Em! Did you pray for patience this week or something? :)

Hey - did you try the Magic Eraser? I know it takes Sharpie off of doors and walls. Not sure about 3 yr old boys, though.
