The drama unfolds....

I know that you are all going to be very disappointed, but you missed out on "quite the drama" tonight at the Kang residence.  I will set the stage first.  Chris has returned to work this week, working full days all week so far.  We've been packing his little low sodium/ low cholesterol lunch and trying to make sure that there was a nice low sodium/low cholesterol dinner awaiting his return home.  All has been well until last night and since last night was Tuesday, all was really only well for one night.  Ugh.  I've really tried.  Really.  Which leads me to the drama.  Last night, Chris comes home to a dead car battery (Thank you, dear sweet Hannah, for loving to turn your light on in the back!) and his dinner that I had set aside on a nice little plate on the counter had been all eaten up.  (minus ONE ravioli....gee, thanks, girls.)  I had a nice talk with the girls about how eating his dinner was very inconsiderate, especially since he is at work all day providing for our family and extra super duper especially since they knew it was his dinner.  Fast forward to tonight.  I had to feed the kids before they left for church, so we had to eat dinner without Chris again.  The girls ate a gigantic dinner and all I can figure is that they worked up a major appetite running around Out of This World.  I set aside a nice plate for Chris and made it very clear that nobody should touch it.  Very clear.   Nurse Lilly.  Read a book.  Come back to the kitchen and voila!  His plate had a tiny bit of hash browns left.  (breakfast for dinner)  I got to put my very frustrated detective hat on to figure out which very inconsiderate children had done this very thoughtless thing.   I felt like I was an interrogation officer.  Should have called my dad for some tips.  Instead it was the same old threatening an early bedtime for everyone if the dirty rotten scoundrels didn't confess.  Is it just me or is that incredibly wrong?  It isn't like they didn't get a big dinner.  And here is Chris, at work all day, very limited on what he can eat and I have a dinner for him that is sodium free, potassium chalked, with all of the food groups in correct proportion....and they eat it?  Sigh....just when I thought my girls were practically perfect in every way.  
Funny part of the whole thing?  Hannah asked me how I knew who did it. (I guess she missed the confession)  She said, while patting Chloe's tummy "Is it because she looks pregnant?  And Rachel's tummy is flat, flat, flat?  You knew she ate it all, huh Mommy? "  Thank you for making us laugh, Hannah.  And Hannah really was a very pleasant child for the rest of the night.  I think it was because she really enjoyed not being the kid in trouble.  Shaking things up at the Kang House.   I should have taken a picture of the girls in a line up for tonight.  Next time, okay?

Tooth Fairy Update:  Hannah lost her 2nd tooth last night!  The tooth fairy, like always, was a little late.  Luckily, she (or maybe her tooth fairy assistant) came by the time Hannah went to recheck her pillow.  Chloe, on the other hand, still has hers hanging, waiting for a gust of wind to blow it out.

Your new header is very cute, but I miss the old one. I just loved the Mommy bird and her 6 little birds, all running out of control all over the tree when they were supposed to be following their Mother.
Chloe! Who would have thought!?

Mike would have been very cranky!!

Chris took it well, but I think that might have had something to do with the fact that I had already cooked a 2nd dinner for him. He just teased them a bunch. "So, how was my dinner?"
