Let's start the new year believing

Happy 1st day of 2008!
Adventure Boy is quite excited that it is 2008. He has no clue what that means, but he knows it's a new number. He woke up at 7:15 because Disney was having a movie marathon of some sorts to celebrate the new year and he just HAD to watch it.

I am optimistic in believing that maybe this will be the year for the following:
*No fights amongst two brothers who love each other dearly
*They will tell each other how much they love each other
*They will NOT gang up on mom and dad
*They will clean up their own spills (without leaving the dirty rags on the counter top)
*They will pick up the Lego's after they are spread all over the floor
*They will play lovingly with each other in their own rooms and not in the master bedroom or anywhere where else in the house
*They will play with their own expensive toys rather than tape and boxes.

Believing in these things are almost as non-existent as me saying I am starting a diet today, tomorrow or within the year.

As I get out of bed, and lazily walk into the kitchen to start breakfast, and find the following:
* the remains of stickiness on the floor where the juice had spilled and was sloppily cleaned. I do however find the empty juice jug in the fridge with the lid off
* the boys yelling at each other for not doing what the other wants to do
*fighting over a blanket that one had, but the other wants
* playing with Lego's in the living room floor (I'm sure I'll find little pieces in between my toes soon)

I can only continue to believe that soon, the list I described earlier will come true. In the meantime I'm off to break up a fight that occurred over who has whose toy.
