How Many Men?

It's been interesting having Damon home this week, the week school begins.

King's Beach, Caloundra, January 9
Interesting because Damon has now learned WHY the 8 PM bedtime is nonnegotiable and WHY all three boys shouldn't sleep in the same bed. 

Interesting because he now sees WHY I snap up the half-price school shorts and sweatshirts when they go on sale months before we need them.

It's also been a lot of fun watching him send the boys to do errands.  Like yesterday when it took all three of them to go down and hunt for the screwdriver.  Which not one of them found.

Or when he expected them to know where to find their own school clothes.  As they were standing on them.
Wet N Wild, Gold Coast, January
Honestly, sometimes you just give up and get Ryan to help out instead.

Leading me to come up with a lightbulb joke I know I am probably not the first woman to think of.

"How many man does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"

"Only one.  But you need a woman to find it for him."

Ian.  Yesterday.
I'd better go and find out where he's misplaced the baby!
