It's Not All Magic

The holiday's were a magical time around my house. Of course, there was Santa Magic. Michael's school sent him home with "Magic Reindeer Food" to spread on the lawn on Christmas Eve. Who knew that flying reindeer eat Quaker Oats with glitter?! We also had the Tooth Fairy magic, when Michael lost his second tooth several days before Christmas. That last one may have involved mommy pulling that tooth a little hard so she wouldn't have to be the freaking Tooth Fairy and Santa on the same night, because sometimes there is just too much magic.

In fact, I think there was so much magic in December that some people have forgotten that magic doesn't really exist. So, as a reminder, here is a list of things that do not happen by magic alone. If you can think of others, please feel free to add them in the comments.

Things that do not happen by magic:
  • Laundry
  • Vacuuming
  • Oil Changes (My car really should yell this at me every time I start it up)
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
  • Homework
  • Tolerating a child who keeps holding things WAY TOO CLOSE to my face (Why does he do that?)
  • Weight control
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Sweeping and mopping (That Sorcerer's Apprentice clip in Fansatia? Huge lie!)
  • Removing teeth from under children's pillows and replacing them with money.
  • Changing sheets in the middle of the night
  • Blog posts
So what did I forget?

Loading up kids into the car and carseats
Getting dressed and showered
Paying bills
Calling in/picking up prescriptions

How ironic is it that my verification word was resting?
