I hope by now you realize that I keep my word.
I do not give up; I will NEVER give up.
Are you tired of me yet?
If your answer is “yes,” my response is “good.”
What is more dangerous than a parent?
One whose child you have threatened.
Reveal my biggest, darkest secrets – scream it from the highest mountain but you will not silence me.
There is a simple, sure way to stop me…
…hire a hitman because I would rather die than give up.

Robert has been sniffling a little lately.
“Is your nose running?” I ask the obvious.
“No, my nose is walking,” responds Robert, with a straight face.
Ask a silly question…

If I am not physically WITH the boys, they will invariably kill each other. This morning I have to go get an oil change and I am taking them with me.
I don’t know what I’m thinking. Probably nothing… but I’m doing a lot of praying.
“Alright, you finish eating. I am going to get ready. No killing, screaming, or complaining,” I say as I am heading upstairs to get ready.
“No arguing,” responds Robert.
“That’s right. No arguing either.”
Thanks for the reminder honey.

The other night, around 9 pm, as it was getting dark, Robert looks at the sky and says, “Mom, the sky is sleeping.”
“It sure is honey.”
Love his analogy.
Then this morning, “Mom, the sky is awake.”
