Day 7…Addicts in the Attic

Some of you may remember the the book “Flowers in the Attic” well, I don’t have flowers in the attic, I have addicts in my attic. The boys are addicted to the program “Lost.” Over Christmas break they watched 30 episodes…don’t know about you but to me that seems to show a little addictive type of behavior! All three boys sit up stairs watching, watching, watching. When they come down to reconnect with the real world they are pale and jumpy. I don’t know if it’s because the program is a little creepy or if it’s because they are in a dimly lit attic or if it’s because they are going through withdrawl. Crazy boys!

Then we have Claire who is absolutely addicted to eating ice. She has a cup of ice with her wherever she goes in the house. She leaves cups everywhere. If there is a cup with water in it somewhere around the house you can be sure at one time it was full of ice!

I guess there are worse things for them to be addicted to so for the time being I will count my lucky stars that it is only “Lost” in the attic and cups of ice/water all around the house!

Oh, for the love of my children…
