Question:

Does anyone else have wet knuckle-marks on the window above their kitchen sink?

You know, you're standing there with your hands plunged deep in sudsy water and you look out contentedly at the back yard and see big brother wielding a weapon over little sister's head while she looks innocently and admiringly up at him and all you can think to do is reach up with your wet hand and rap loudly on the window so that big brother will look up sheepishly and nod his acknowledgment of the command? But then sudsy water is left dripping down the glass...

It's quite effective, sudsy window rapping. At least, that's what I've heard.


(Taken on another occasion, but somehow fits the moment perfectly...)

Oh, yes me too! I'm glad your kids aren't perfect either. :)

Love you!

laura said...

yes. you are not alone in your knuckle rapping! mine is accompanied by dripping water across the room- because my kitchen window is not over the sink, it's to the side, overlooking the backyard!

Hi Elise :) Susdy window rapping, eh? I do more gnat-splat popping here - lol - popping the tiny gnats that come in with the fresh veggies and terminator mom is saving her sweeties from the tiny bugs. But she only sees them when her hands are just freshly washed from changing a diaper - always between the rinse and dry, so little splats of water with gnat guts (pardon me for gross factor) all over my kitchen window ;)

Hope that you have a lovely week! Love & hugs, Q

Yes, there's tapping here, too.

Anna said...

Ha ha! Isn't it funny how all moms are alike in some ways?

I hope that everything is going well with your pregnancy! :)

Love,
Anna

Put that stick down!...

Watch out! Watch out! Walk around the swing!...

Put the mulch...rocks...bricks back!

Nope, no need to rap on the window here :)

Ha! Yes, I rapped the bedroom window today, in fact! With sudsy hands from cleaning the bathroom!! :)

LOL, I don't have a window over my kitchen sink, but I always have knuckle marks on our french doors leading out to the front yard! Although it seems that it's my 3yr DD plotting on my 7yr DS and 5 yr DD! LOL

Oh, now that is just too funny! We have them here too. And it's usually either related to light sabers or one of the kids trying to make a fort out of the clothesline.

I find myself doing the same thing. They look they are having fun though! We'd love to have you come for dinner in Aug. We're headed out for a family reunion today so I'll touch base with you when we get back next week.
Thanks Elise!
