It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Dear Children

While I appreciate that you've been doing your chores and refraining from bickering, I must say that it annoys me no end to go into the bathroom half an hour after you've gone to bed and noticed that your toothbrushes are all bone dry, and that the bottle of fluoride rinse you opened four days ago has not depreciated one iota since that day. This tells me that you haven't brushed your teeth in four days. At the ages of almost 11, almost 14 and almost 17 one would think that this daily habit had been ingrained in you, especially since I remind you every single night and morning to brush, brush, BRUSH.

Is Ma annoyed? You bet your bippy. Can I afford root canals and crowns for the bunch of you because you don't care about your teeth? Do you think girls will want to kiss boys whose mouths taste like a skunk crawled in their mouth, sprayed, and died?

From now on, anybody who fails to brush their teeth in the evening goes to bed at 8 PM. Anybody who fails to brush in the morning loses their video game time for that day.

Bet you'll all brush now.


Borderline symptom of the day: annoyedannoyed

Yow. What does he do, live on sugar?

He thinks brushing and flossing are for "losers".
