Confessions on Cause and Effect

My kids are going to grow up and talk about how they hated Brett and I saying "cause and effect" and "if you put things over people, you'll lose your things." These statements are said over and over again and even at their young ages I can hear them roll their eyes.

I confess....
Yesterday was a brilliant lesson in cause and effect. My kids are not allowed to slam doors. Molly decided to break the rule and slam the door in her brother's face. In return, Mark got so mad that he threw the door open and the door handle popped Molly in the eye.

I got to see this all go down from Molly's side of the door.

I confess....
Once I knew she wasn't really hurt we had a little talk about cause and effect. I think this face says it all.

I confess....
Every time I look at this picture, it cracks me up! It's just too pitiful for words! But don't worry, I didn't laugh in her face, I at least have that much control over my emotions.

I confess....
I went to a few Meet Up play dates this week. It's been so nice to get out of the house and have other grown ups to talk to. It's so weird not knowing anyone in the city. This is the most difficult part of moving that I completely underestimated.

I confess....
In Las Vegas our mailboxes were all together each box was locked. In NC, we've gone back to having our own individual box in front of the house. My kids new favorite activity is checking the mail. I have no idea what the fascination is, but they love getting to bring the mail in.

I confess....
I was attacked by fire ants yesterday. I forgot just how horribly painful fire ant bites are and I couldn't sleep last night. So I quit putting off hiring an exterminator and one will be here this afternoon. Bugs in the South, something I do not miss from my childhood.

I confess....
My 5 year old is obsessed with a CD her church preschool teacher gave her for Christmas. She plays the same song over and over again. It gets on my nerves, but it's pretty cute too. Isabella also wants me to dance with her. She's very bossy about how my dance moves should look.

She's 5 and my dance moves are already not cool. Lord help me!

What are you confessing this week?
