I was going to title this post with something including the phrase "Mother of the Year Award" or "Britney Spears," but really, I can't bring myself to try to make this humorous.
Kevin and Joey were bouncing a super ball in the house a little while ago - you know, one of those small solid rubber balls that bounce like crazy? Wanting to join the fun, I got ahold of the ball and threw it against the wall to make it ricochet. I did this a few times, to all of my kids' great awe and enjoyment, until I threw it against the wall and it flew back across two rooms . . . and Finn started screaming from where he was laying on the living room floor minding his own business.
