Ant Bullies and a Bad Mom

Yesterday Isaac was attacking the poor little ants on our patio by spitting on them. Cormac in an attempt to be just like his brother but not quite having the spitting thing down decided to just start licking them. And my only thought was, "they're occupied" and turned and walked away to do something else.

I don't think you're a bad Mom at all!!! We have some ants in our kitchen and from watching Jansen and I smash them, Lucy has learned. It's a valuable skill you know... I can't believe how much your kids have grown! They are so cute!

Oh,how I laughed at this one!!! That Cormac is too much. Actually, I think ants have protein, don't they. Bet they were kinda crunchy? Don't some countries eat chocolate covered ants? Anyway, thanks for the laugh! They are just too hilarious! And you are NOT a bad mom...just more relaxed now. Like how first time mothers sterilizeany binkies that fall on the floor before inserting them back in baby's mouth....mothers of two see the ant thing and say "oh, they're occupied" and it's all good :)
