Where are you from?

Aaron: “I’m from Charleston.”

Isaiah: “I’m from your mom…ooooohhh!!! Wait…I guess I am because I was in mom’s belly.”

Aaron: “Well, I’m actually from dust. God made me from the dust on the ground.”

Me: “Alright Bishop…”

Switching Providers?

While sorting through the last mountain of paperwork on my dining room table I rip up a few things into a trashcan beside me. 

Aaron: “Are you switching to T-Mobile?”

Me: “No. Why?”

Aaron: “Well people that do get to make that sound.”

(Tearing up higher bills…I’m guessing he’s referring to an advertisement???)

Sir…you’re six. Please resume putting together your 135 piece Marvel Avengers puzzle…also on the dining room table. 

Please ignore the spaghetti…or is that macaroni?
I really want to uncover my poor dining room table tonight. I guess I should get back to it versus posting this. 🙂

Have a good night!

Consistently…A Mess

As a mom of two boys I have to constantly clean if I want my house to be in any kind of order. So basically…it’s a wreck.

Super messy people…no exaggeration. The boys’ bathroom is just terrible. There is a piggy bank tipped over beside the bathtub and close to $2.00 in pennies scattered around the front and sides of the toilet. There is a deck of multiplication flashcards spread out as well. I guess someone was multitasking while going potty. 

Poop + Math = recipe for success?

Maybe…report cards come out next week so we’ll have to wait and see 🙂

Getting the boys to do chores and help out can be difficult. It takes a lot more time and they are messy. 

Sure…make your own sandwich or even just get your own snack can quickly turn into a nightmare.

They’re going to be more helpful but I think the food/drink category will stick with me.

Gotta love ’em!!!!

Goodnight everyone 🙂

Meat Department Temptation

Grocery shopping is at the top of my list of things I’d rather not do. I try to avoid going with the boys because it takes longer but their presence certainly makes things more interesting.

Tonight as we round the corner of the bakery and move into the meat department section of the store Isaiah’s eyes get big and he stops pushing the cart. My youngest is sitting inside of it squishing the first few things I’ve picked up. He walks over to a bright red sign… Continue reading

How To Choose Your Words

choose-your-words

Me: Aaron, What did you have for related arts today at school?

Aaron: I don’t know. It’s a long name.

Me: What?!? Tell me what you did there and maybe I can figure it out.

Aaron: Well…we touched cotton balls and sandpaper. Continue reading

Monday Madness

Sitting at my desk I was desperately trying to complete a report that was fairly difficult. I started a new position at work and I’m learning/working so it’s taking me longer to get through assignments.

While pulling my hair out on this alone Aaron asked me to fix “Abby”. Abby is a stuffed…well used to be stuffed…bunny rabbit. Isaiah tried to throw it in the trash earlier because the stuffing was spewing out of its neck. Continue reading

Hey! I know her!

6:50AM – We are standing at the bus stop in a crowd of kids who are running around. Moms are all dressed in their PJ’S with super hot hairstyles called “it’s too early for this”.

A white minivan passes the bus stop on its way out of our neighborhood. Suddenly Isaiah starts loudly proclaiming he knows the driver.

Isaiah: I know her! That’s my librarian! That’s my librarian!

Aaron: (screaming loudly) What?!?! I met her. I had “librarian” for related arts one time. I know her! 

Isaiah: Why does she live in our neighborhood?

I glared at him with a look that I’d hope would express I wanted them both to SHUT UP immediately. 

Me: Why not? Please let it go. 

Thankfully they both dropped it. A few seconds later Aaron points to one of the moms and begins to shout.

Aaron: I know her too! I saw her at my school!

Me: That’s great bud. Bring your voice down.

He walks closer to the woman and walks directly in front of her.

Aaron: What?!?! She always has a BIG smile on her face. 

Well…at least we live around some friendly people 🙂
