Life couldn't be more exciting even if I joined the circus...


...wait, I think I live in a circus! Three rings to be exact.

In the first ring....


TIGER. Yes, a tiger. Now if you are a tiger you definitely need stripes right? Big black permanent stripes. Just check out Baylor's legs because he drew, "stripes" on them. Now he's a tiger. Grrrrr
In the second ring....

Balls!! Not really. Grapes. But clearly they are shaped like balls and deserve to be thrown across the kitchen at terrifying speeds! When you throw these, "balls" across the kitchen you must yell BALLLLLLLSSS at the top of your lungs every time you chuck the fruit. Brody will show you how, he's a pro.
In the third and final ring....
We have the great escape artist. It's 20 degrees today. The perfect temperature for a quick sprint across the frozen yard...in socks....and PJ's. Faster than a speeding bullet...I swear you turn around for three seconds and the kid is out the door. Good thing the back yard has a fence. All I saw was a flash of red and a shriek of joy. You guessed it...Brody man escaped out the mudroom door.

This is what we've been dealing with all week. The boys are still sounding much like barking seals and have passed the cough on to mom and dad. We all sound like a bunch of smokers. I think the need to invent one big nebulizer that you can put in a room and everyone can just sit and breathe. Here's to a week of less coughing, more sleeping and freedom from snot.
