Sneaky Mom

20160406_153503.jpgI admit it.

I snuck it under my sweatshirt¬†so they wouldn’t see.

No. I didn’t share.

Yes. It was good.

OMG…I Am An Eggplant :(

Last night I stood in my bathroom in horror. I don’t know when the transformation happened. It just snuck up on me.

How could he not tell me? To protect my feelings?

Where the heck did it come from? I mean I know after two kids and a terrible diet my stomach has grown a bit…

This is different though. This is hip fat. This is backside fat. Oh my goodness…I am an EGGPLANT!

Eggplant – fruit or veggie?

This is just unacceptable.

Day 1: I picked myself up out of the produce department this morning and started to kill the ugly purple shape. With an intense playlist in my ears I ran. I ran hard. I stumbled over to the rowing machine and attacked it some more.

I refuse to be a vegetable or a fruit…eggplants are one of those questionable foods ūüôā

Over the last eight years I have adjusted to the fact that there is no private time as mother. So that being said here’s my top 10 list of reasons my children barged in on me in the bathroom… Continue reading

My Lost Car & Facial Peel

lost

I’ve misplaced my car keys a million times. Yesterday was the first time I lost my car.

Let me begin by admitting my husband offered to walk me to my car. At the time I thought his offer was ridiculous. No thank you sir! I am a grown woman and we are parked at opposite ends of this gigantic mall. I’ll see you at the house… Continue reading

Hyperactive Puppies Saving The World

Sometimes I think my oldest is part puppy. I’ve been home for less than 2 hours and I am¬†drained. Just watching him run, skip, and leap around my house makes me incredibly sleepy.

In his eyes my couch is one of those boosters on the road in a video game.

Those ramps that increase your speed just before you fly high into the air.

Every night run, run, run, SWOOOSH up and over the couch into a sprint for justice in his imaginary super hero world.

Both of my kids are constantly in a “save the world” mission mind set. They have so many fake weapons and Marvel gear. I must admit they really do look the part. A week or so ago I became fed up with their foolishness. I packed it all up. Everything that was “fighting” related was packed up and put away in the storage closet.

Let’s see how much trouble you can get into now with only your blocks and stuffed animals…hahahaha!!!

What a waste of my time… They quickly gathered replacements!

Basically nothing has changed. The battle against all of earth’s greatest enemies continues nightly in my living room, dining room, or where ever they hop, skip and jump.

Tonight I’ll leave you all with this visual reference of what I feel closely matches to my child’s energy level.¬†Good night!

                     

 

 

When I Grow Up…

Aaron: When I grow up I’m going to have a Lamborghini.

Isaiah: Well, Lamborghinis don’t turn well.

Aaron: Yeah they do.

Isaiah: No. Uncle Zach told me so they don’t turn well.

Can you stop by the bank?

cat oh reallyI was sitting at the kitchen table attempting to update a few things online for my husband’s website. I had a plate sitting next to my laptop with a slice of cheese pizza and cheesy bread on it. Aaron runs/skips/dances/twirls over to me from the living room and says:

“Hey mama! Tomorrow can you go to the bank and get some money so that you can buy me a skateboard? I want to show you a SUPER COOL TRICK!”

I slowly close¬†my¬†eyes. It was¬†a long week and I don’t even know how to respond to this ridiculous suggestion¬†regarding how I should spend my weekend and/or money.

Me: “I’ll see what I can do.”

He leans his head down onto my dinner plate and picks up my cheesy bread with his little teeth. I glare in his direction and he just stares at me¬†chewing…

He walks over closer to me and with nasty garlic breath he whispers…

Aaron: “Ask them for $100.”

Money does NOT grow on trees!
