Teri, when she was here the other day...I was really thinking hard about duct tape...really thinking hard about it! Not that I would...I swear she asks more questions than your two and my two ever did! EGAD!

girl...you have forgotten the ASK HER A QUESTION technique! It is the only way with 3-y-o's. It gets them going on a monologue so you can take a breath.

Have you bugged my house? It makes me laugh to think we are going through the same thing. I will now insert thoughts of Teri & laughter where there was once the urge to hurtle myself in a brick wall! :)
