A New Level of Disappointment

You open your refrigerator and see the carton of milk only to find 3 drops left at the bottom. Maybe it was your favorite bag of chips with just a few crumbs left. You had a craving. You made your way into the kitchen. The container supposedly holding what will satisfy your craving is there.  You see it but inside you find there’s nothing left. No way of satisfying what you had a taste for.  Continue reading

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


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

Meltdown At The Buffet

Week 5 of Kindergarten

The excitement is gone. He no longer jumps for joy as he puts on his TMNT shell book bag. He drags his feet down the three flights of stairs from our apartment to the bus stop. By the time I get off from work and pick him up he’s done. More than done. Cranky and disgusted. He wants to eat and then fall out asleep. 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

Get Your Hands Involved!

I’ve had it! Seriously, this is just ridiculous. I don’t understand how hard it is to pee in the toilet. I mean the hole is HUGE! Just aim for the water…At this point can we just get it on the seat?

Why & how are we at the point where it smells like a gas station bathroom in the back woods? Continue reading
