Nobody Told Me that There’d Be These Things!

Share

Just a little song to get stuck in your head this morning. Nobody Told Me that There’d Be These Things (Sung to the tune of These Are A Few of My Favorite Things) Boogers on noses and dog poop on mittens, Scouring the kettles and healing the bitten, Toddlers who tie up the puppy with […]

Because Rambling About Shopping Trips Can Be Fun

Share

We went to the mall yesterday to combine a $15/50 coupon with a jean sale at Old Navy. After piling all the kids into the car, then out of the car and into the stroller, then through the mall doors that weren’t really created to accommodate double jogging strollers, I found that I hadn’t read the fine […]

Mommy Moment

Share

Josh and I were having a conversation in the car.  It was either yesterday or the day before.  Or the day before that.  The days tend to blur together.

Painfully ripped from blissful unconsciousness, I saw my eight-month old standing inches from […]

Jesus v. The Shark

Share

So recently, I started to get concerned that perhaps Benjamin thinks Christmas is only for Snobrods and other such luxuries we won’t let him get from the Wal-Mart check-out lane. (Or Meijer.  Or Target.  Or Amazon.com) (Yes, he frequently requests that we search for Cars characters on Amazon.com.  He’s so much like me, it’s scary.) […]

You will laugh. You will cry. Because you are laughing SO HARD. Enjoy! And on a more serious note, a ballad on the Jim/Pam romance:

They’re Conspiring Against Me

Olivia: Watch Veggie Tales now? Me: No, let’s watch it later, when Michael (the boy I watch) is grumpy. Michael: [Starts screaming] Olivia: Michael grumpy now!

So The Kitchen Just Exploded

Share

My head is spinning, my knees are weak, and my hands can’t stop shaking. I feel as though I just ran a mile. Or five. How many calories does one really good adrenaline burst burn anyway? Where to start… We were in Olivia’s room. Reading books. I thought I smelled smoke, but passed it off […]

We Have A Nemesis

Bad squirrel. Bad. In all fairness, though, Olivia did leave her babydoll outside. For many hours. With bread stuffed in her mouth.
