This morning I woke up to my three-year-old son unlocking our front door, buck naked. When I asked him what he was doing he calmly said, "I'm just looking for the orange airplane." Oh, thanks for clarifying. And the naked part? I knew I put him to bed with pajamas and a diaper on. Where … Continue reading Goooooood Morning! (Can you hear the sarcasm?)
Frustrated, impatient, and tired, I came into my room, sat on my bed and prayed in earnest, "Please, Lord, let him poop." (You never know what you are going to be praying for as a parent, do you?) Then just like that, a wave of inspiration flowed over me. Was it the Holy Spirit? I … Continue reading Prayers and Poetry, Inspired by Poop
I'm really starting to dislike the local library. I am sure the feelings are mutual. Folks, I have just incurred a $20.00 fee for returning damaged books! Yes, it was my fault. I'm guilty. Here's what happened: I set the books on the floor of my van next to my water bottle. My water bottle that … Continue reading Luckless at the Library
We haven't had the best luck with the local library. Maybe I should rephrase that. They haven't had the best luck with us. The last time we checked out books from the library I unwisely let my children "read" them on the way home. Moments later I realized the folly of my decision when I … Continue reading So That’s What Happens to Library Books…
I've had the relatively same experience a few times recently. It goes something like this: Me out and about with my kids, usually holding one, chasing another. One might be crying, or screaming, or kicking; most definitely someone is running. I am probably trying to do something totally unreasonable like feed them a meal in … Continue reading These are the days?
Here's what's new around our house these days… Yup, he's pretty much a walker now! Finally! He is 13 months old. As we settle into this second year of having two in tow, things are getting easier. It's a nice break. When I found out I was going to have another baby only 14 months … Continue reading What’s new
It's that time of year again. Time to buy another pair of sunglasses. My latest pair of Vera Wang’s from Kohl's have lost a screw, and left me squinting into the wild blue yonder defenseless against the sun's blinding light reflecting off of asphalt and silver Toyota Camrys. Was it the poor construction that formulated … Continue reading The truth about cheap sunglasses
It's been such a hectic couple of weeks round here, to stay the least, I almost forgot I had a blog. Okay, not quite but there have been so many things I have wanted to write about, like the well-loved oleaginous Whirly Pop I threw out after six years of use while packing a few … Continue reading Lessons in moving with toddlers
Well my husband is home I have internet again! How's that for an attention grabber? Yeah, well, okay, it's exciting for me! I probably didn't mention this before (because of all of those weirdoes out there on the internet who are most likely not reading my blog), but my husband was out of town the … Continue reading Don’t call it a comeback…
Yesterday was one of "those" days. My dog was eating crayons, (the orange ones in case you were wondering); a bottle I gave Landon in an effort to streamline our dinner routine leaked all over the high chair, the floor, me, him, our dog; and when ripping a diaper from my upright two-year old anxiously … Continue reading I have the cutest kids!
