"Last morning..." is how my eldest, Elise, described anything in the past. Now, she's starting kindergarten and has no use for this phrase! I want to remember this, along with all of our stories, so I'm putting it here on Last Morning's Adventures. I hope you can either relate or get a laugh. :)

Ten Parenting Tips on Tuesday

1. Don't *actually* flush your child down the toilet---it's okay to think about it as long as you don't follow through!
2. Be sure to keep your house messy: if it's spotless, you need to play some more!
3. During the witching hour around 4, let them "help" cook dinner. {Keep mushrooms & a butter knife handy if you can't think of any other way for them to help, let them chop mushrooms!}
4. Acknowledge that your spouse exists, even put a little sugar on it. :)
5. When someone from a different generation yells over your child's shrill scream, "Enjoy it. These are the best years of your life!" refrain from smacking them! If possible, smile and nod.
6. If one of the kiddos is a baby, make sure to find a quiet place at least once a day to sit and listen to the baby eat. Those noises are amazing, I promise!
7. Take lots of pictures, and get your family pictures taken every year by Erin Cobb!
8. Devise a plan for when all of your kids are crying. {refer to Sometimes You Gotta Choose}
9. Find some "me time," everyone will be happy that you do!
10. Give lots and lots of hugs!!
