The hands-down winner in the category of “Parenting Tip of The Week,” from When Crazy Meets Exhaustion:
Do I Have a Booger in My Nose? Asking this question works wonders when I need my kids to: look up while I rinse their hair (shampoo + little eyes = HUGE fiasco); look into the camera; lift their chin so I can wipe under it; and it’s even been known to squash sibling squabbles.

And, let’s wrap up with a Quote of the Day from my House:
Cinder: Mom! Flora is being bossy to Ender!
Jane: I need you to focus on the big picture here, Cinder. Yes, Flora is being bossy to Ender. But the important thing is that Ender is not biting you in the butt.
Cinder: Or flushing tampons down the toilet?
