Out of the mouths of babes

I did not know that...The Girl: "Don't you know vagina is Spanish for bottom?"


Yes, even 4 year olds can manipulate. :) After a sharp scolding from me to both kids, the Girl follows me around until she can pin me down and give me a long hug. As my heart melting, she runs off to brag the following to the boy: "See? Now Mom isn't mad at me and I can do whatever I want!"


My children have been taught that the expression "Duh" is disrespectful and not to be said in the house. The other day, I was asking The Girl a question with a painfully obvious answer. I saw her pull her shirt over her mouth and then she looked at me like she had just done something wrong. Then she says, "I really, really needed to say 'DUH" but I didn't want you to hear me."


I really wish my 8 year old said some lighthearted, silly things these days, but you know when you are in 3rd grade, life. is. serious. Maybe one day...

Poor little neglected blog...

Thursday, April 8, 2010

Like the new look?

I have been working on my bling, making it more my style than the templates that come with the Blogger site. It's only been two years!

You can tell I am not a superstar about properly taking care of my little site here.

I have had so many ideas in the cooker, marinating, and the time just escapes me...and before you know it, the idea dissolves before I can get the words out of me.

I could tell you about the strep going through my house right now...the puke I have been cleaning up...the explosive diarrhea. But I will spare you the visuals and just say I still have more ideas stewing.

I definitely want to feature a series of before/after shots throughout my house. We have lived here 7 years and have worked really hard on bringing our groovy 1974 split level into the 21st century. I want to write more about the kids and the mischief they find themselves in. And I want to share my pitiful to you, but super cool to me crafts and projects that decorate my home.

Mostly, I just want to share myself. To put my musings out into the cosmos and just see what comes of it. I may not update every week...heck, I may not update every month...but I do want to blog and I want to invite you to please, feel free to come along for the intermittent ride. :)
