More of the same

The days around here are sometimes routine.  Most of the time I like it that way.  Other times it makes me crazy.  I am sure I am not alone in these feelings. Yesterday we did school, Ruby made a dinosaur out of aluminum foil, Molly asked for 5 million snacks, we had a quick school meeting here, we ate lunch, […]

Big Teeth and Hair

Mack is a funny boy.  It is no secret that I have big hair.  It is also not a secret that my teeth are large as well.  🙂  I think Mack has it figured out.  For a while he has seemed intrigued with my hair.  He touches it.  It started off with him telling me that he liked my hair. […]

Stuff

We have had stuff going on, but I haven’t had time to blog about any of it.  The Dorminy’s visited this weekend.  Would you believe I didn’t take one single picture?  Shameful.  Friday night was Soccer practice and Mexican.  Saturday Mrs. Debbie and I got to go the Beth Moore conference.  It was fabulous!  We had a wonderful time.  There […]

Nothing exciting…

I would love to post about a surprise get a way trip that Josh and I just got back from or an amazing day when a lady came and cleaned my house for free or about a day when the kids were completely obedient and didn’t whine one single time. But if I did, you would know I was lying. My days have been filled with laundry, home school activities and work, wiping down toilets, picking up 5 million pairs of shoes in the wrong place and twice that many books that get left every where except on the book shelf, cooking, coping with ridiculous PMS, changing the vacuum cleaner bag, and taking two shirts back to Kohl’s for the sales person to remove the security things.  Gotta love it when that happens.  Josh was looking at my shirts and brought it to my attention that those security things were still attached.  I was so upset for a moment….maybe I was a little dramatic when I said, “Oh my goodness.  I can’t go back to Kohl’s.  I have THREE KIDS!!!!!”  I was serious. So when something fun or funny happens around here, I will be sure to post.  Until then, let me get back to sweeping.

Singing and Schooling

Last night the girls sang in church.  We sat up front and had a great view of both of them.  Ruby has done this before.  Molly was beside herself with excitement since this was her first time.  She was all smiles.  She sang each word and did all the movements.  So sweet to watch both of them singing. Molly with […]

Funny.

The 6:30 bedtime wasn’t far off (see yesterday’s post).  At 6:54 all of them are clean, in pajamas, in the bed and listened to four stories.  Mack kept asking, “Why we go to bed when it is still morning?” BUT, the funniest thing said during this night time routine was from Molly.  I asked Ruby if her name was on Mrs. Honaker’s tooth fairy club wall since she has lost so many teeth.  Ruby said, “No, Mrs. Honaker is just so busy that she hasn’t been able to do it, and I don’t want to ask her about it because she is just so busy and has so much to do.” Really?  Ruby gets it….at least with Mrs. Honaker. So, I reply, “Wow, Ruby.  That is great that you don’t ask her about it because you see that she is so busy with so many other things.  We could really practice that around here.  When Mommy is busy with something, maybe you can not ask over and over for me to do something else.”  (It has been a LONG day…trust me, she does not “get this” when it comes to me.) Well, Molly pipes up, “Yeah and Daddy, too.  When he is on the potty we should not bother him.” Does anyone else think that is hilarious??  Maybe it is just me, but I laughed really hard.
