You know you are a tired mother of 3 young kids when....

...the oldest child tells you that the youngest child has somehow gained possession of the bag of Goldfish crackers and is eating out of it and you don't go find him to take it away from him before he dumps the whole thing. Instead, you just blog about it.

So been there done that. I don't even get up anymore unless there are bodily fluids involved. :)

Did you at least take a picture?

Eh. I agree with KatieBug. There were no bodily fluids, no dangerous chemicals, no fire...

Well, even just a few weeks ago, I would have gone on a search and recovery mission to find the little guy and his booty. Because I know that he's going to drop or spill anything he has in his hands. And if it's a bag of goldfish, then that means the entire bag would be dumped on the floor. If that happened, he would get upset about it, and then stomp around on them making sure it would not be easy to clean up. But I was just too tired to worry about that today. Thankfully, he just took about 20 out and put them on a stool, and then back into the bag, and then back on to the stool and then he brought the bag to me. So no clean up after he ate what he took out.

I've been there! Instead of looking at that as a potential mess, I like to look at that as the youngest one taking care of himself and not bothering mom about everything! ; )
