DONE!!!  FINISHED.  We’ll show up for Kinder graduation and 3rd grade awards and that is it!!!  My mind […]

:: My new favorite find…snickerdoodle ice cream sandwiches.  These things are the bomb.  They satisfy my sweet tooth and aren’t too high in calories.  I’m a little bummed they are only out for a limited amount of time, but I’ll enjoy them while I can. :: Four baseball games cancelled.  Total bummer.  I love watching […]

It’s been a long week.  The kids, how shall I say it?  Have been totally obnoxious all week.  And that’s a nice way of putting it.  We had our follow up at the lice place and everyone is in the clear.  Indeed, great news.  But not enough to really make my week.  I still had […]

:: Don’t you hate when you are having a great week, and by great week, I mean you haven’t yelled at your kids, and BAM…it’s all over.  I have a certain child who refuses to actually concentrate while in school and his stupid errors are making his A’s turn into B’s.  I can’t take it. […]

:: Today Snax made a mask out of his paper towel.  And glued it to his face.  More than once.  Goose started freaking out, telling me to make him stop because it would stay on his face forever.  I assured him that he was wrong since he had glued something to his face several times […]

:: What is it about 3rd grade?  For a child that has never had a problem with school, 3rd grade seems to be kicking some ass.  And by kicking ass, I mean we’re not making easy A’s.  We have 100’s and then we have a 50 coming home.  My favorite, the 56 in science lab […]

You know the saying, “if you don’t have something good to say, don’t say anything at all.”  My mom taught me that phrase many years ago.  I’ve had varying degrees of success following it. I teach my children a better version of it: is it kind? is it true?  is it necessary?  Generally, wonderful words […]

Yes, a break from vacation pictures.  Am I finished posting pictures from the trip?  Not even close. :: Football season is starting.  As is fantasy football.  Last year, Lance had his big auction during the week.  I was sick.  Puking sick.  SO what did Lance do?  Left me home with five kids.  He won the […]

:: It’s August.  The third to be exact.  Less than 27 days before school starts.  Am I sad?  Pretty devastated to be honest.  I hate the thought of the boys going to school.  I’m more than a bit worried about the Baby Hulk starting school.  And not just because I think I’m the best teacher […]

Five things that made me smile this week… :: My mother in law buys cards for everyone’s birthday.  She signs her name, then leaves it out for my father in law to sign them.  Once I asked if he just signed his name or if he actually looked at who the card was for.  With […]
