After these little exchanges, I am going back to bed.
Middle Monkey, "Mom, You know what is cool?"
Middle Monkey, "At night, I put my clothes in the hamper and in the morning, they are clean and in the dryer."
I think, "Dandy, they believe in a Dirty Clothes Fairy that comes every evening and takes care of the laundry."
Baby Monkey, "Mom, a couple of nights ago, I organized the Christmas presents for you. Yours are in back, mine are in front, Teenage Monkey's are on the left, and Middle Monkey's are on the right. I saved a place for Daddy."
I think, "Wonders never cease. I got just what I needed - a very tidy Christmas tree."
Me to Middle Monkey, "Go brush your teeth."
Middle Monkey after a few minutes, "Somebody stole my toothbrush and I can't brush my teeth."
I think, "Why the hell would somebody steal your toothbrush?"
I say, "You are not going to school without brushing your teeth, that is nasty."
We go find the tooth brush.
Somebody help me....please help me.
