My kids are so incredibly loud.
They yell and scream at each other when they're angry.
They yell and shriek with joy.
They yell and holler in their pretend games.
I try to tell them to use their inside voices, and then I remember that their inside voices are really loud. Really, really loud.

Possible parenting fail. Well, probable. Green Chlorophyll everywhere.
They cleaned it up. With a white towel.
They are learning how not to follow slime recipes, and I'm learning how to not be a control freak.

No matter how careful you are.
Especially when as you sit down you think, 'I'll probably dribble on the last bite.'
You will dribble yellow curry sauce on the third to last bite.
So then you'll Google how do you get curry out of white clothes.
Most popular option is detergent and white vinegar and warm water, and then you dab at the stain until it works up. Sorta worked. Then I tried straight Forever New (I have to wash my bras anyway so I might as well dig it out). Worked a bit more.
I should mention that this shirt is new and worn once. IE today.
THEN I found my Pink Solution laundry bar under the sink. Fab-u-lous!
Other things that do not pair well with white tops: all other Indian food, Mexican food, red sauces, coffee, baby vomit, any other food, going outside, children, pets, bleeding noses, and life.
Now I'm rethinking my recent decision to replace half of my wardrobe with white blouses.

Where the heck have I been?
I'm watching K1 swing on the saucer and K2 is a little bit too oblivious. I'd like to say that he'd only get knocked over once, but, you know, he's 5. Or something.
I've been feeling the urge to just write lately. I miss it. Hanging out with my hubby after hours has been nice though, and let's face it, if I sit down and do nothing, my kids ignore me. If, however, I start writing or even do banking or dishes or anything that can indicate that I'm not readily available, then they need me.
Have you ever been disappointed by a pretty drink?
Ugh. K2 is doing the head grater (IE he's rubbing sand in his hair. Because it's fun).
