The list of ten ...

My kids have been out of control.  It's just that time of year.  Lawyer is traveling a lot ... I have been preoccupied and its the time of year when they get over excited and act like complete crazies!  I will say that the Santa threat is working like a charm for me.  Too bad that will end pretty much the minute he drops the gifts and bolts out of town.  Boo!

WPM was whining like mad on Saturday and I made him sit down and write five things he was thankful for ...  he whined about it, so I made it ten.  He started to whine even more but then realized I would just keep adding five things.  Whining is pretty much nails on the chalkboard for me.  I despise it.  I am working on a way to completely remove it from my life, but I am doubtful.  I will let you know how that works out for me.  

He sat down at the computer and made his list.  It was pretty much a list of ten words.  No thought really ... just ten words so he could move on to other things.  Notsomuch little one.  I made him add adjectives and he could not use the same one over and over again which he attempted to do with the word lovely.

Here is his finished list.  (this is the exact way he typed it ... 
all I did was copy it over to the blog and put it in italics)

my loving family.  my nice mother and father.  me funny friends.  me cut sister.  my supper nice brother and me cousins.  my awesome ankle and my super nice aunt.  my loving grandfather.

Ps ... his ankle (uncle) was in the house at the time which made his list even easier since it was one thing he didn't have to stretch his brain to think about.  

He's pretty stinking cute.  

And he will live to see another day!

xo,
MPM
