Things I do not understand...

1. How a 4-year-old can throw up in the middle of the night all over his bed, and yet, neither Chris nor I had any idea. No signs on his PJs this morning, no complaints of an upset stomach, nothing. How can he not come down and tell us? 

All I can say to that one is ew.

2. How a 10-year-old who started homework before dinner - WELL before dinner - is still not done with her homework at 9pm. There wasnt even a lot of homework. Yet, she didnt know her vocab., was annoyed when I quizzed her, and acted as if I had done something wrong.  When I came home from teaching class tonight, she was playing hide and seek.

All I can say to that one is hmmmm.
(I know I NEVER gave MY parents such attitude!) ;)

I think I'll stop now. I could go on and on, but where's the fun in that? 
I think I'll just call it a day.
