Back to Normal...

I have been spoiled the last few days. Having a sick child seriously takes down the toy chaos that my house becomes by the end of the day.  For days on end, the toys actually stayed in the toy room, with very minimum creepage out into the rest of our living space.  Now, don't get me wrong, I would rather have a healthy, happy child pulling all the toys out any day of the week, instead of a little sick guy laying on the couch, but it was like a little mini-vacation from toy round-up for the last few days and it was kind of nice. 

The last day of Ben's sick leave was officially the end of the vacation and back to normalcy.  I spend most of my days walking, jumping, or falling over train sets that have spontaneously erected themselves in various parts of the house.  I've learned they are always where you least expect them, and if possible, around a corner, so it's even more of a surprise when you stub your toe.  But I have to say, it didn't bother me very much to finally see my old Ben back to building tracks and bossing his brother around....Chris may have a different story though...
"Mom, I'm teaching Chris how to make the perfect train track!" - Ben
I'm so glad to see we are back to the natural order of things....and that would be Ben telling Chris what to do, and Chris doing it.  Have a great day!
