Life with kids is ALWAYS an adventure. And I have 3 who are only 3 years apart. (yes, we're crazy.) This is my place to capture the craziness in all it's glory, because childhood only happens once. (thank goodness!)

When you get tired of reading about my kids visit my other blog all about ME!

The oldest child syndrome

I love when my oldest tries to enforce rules that he himself doesn't even follow.

I abhor it when I ask Adam to do something that I know he is perfectly capable of and he tells me "I can't" So it is a rule that we don't say can't at our house. You can say you don't want to or that you need somebody to teach you how or help you out, but we don't say can't.

So this morning I hear Adam and Zoey upstairs and Zoey is getting lectured by her older brother. "Zoey, we do not say can't at our house! MOM! ZOEY SAID CAN'T" Lovely.

Man, I can't wait! Moira's bad enough about telling me what to do, soon she'll have someone else too.
