The classic kid story.

Kids: Supposed to be upstairs all snug in there beds watching T.V.
Parents: Down stairs watching T.V , enjoying a bit of quiet time.


Kids: Looking mighty HAPPY!
Mom: Not so much.

There was powder sugar everywhere. Apparently "Q" decided he wanted to use a chair to climb onto the counters and explore the cupboards.

Skor vs. Heath

Ok grandpa, I have been an avid Heath bar lover for a long time and apparently somehow I inherited that from you. Anywho I was in Maverik one day and I saw a Skor bar. What is the difference? I asked myself. So I bought one of each for the taste test. Luckily mom was around that day so she took half a Heath and half a Skor and I took half a Heath and half a Skor. Mom liked the Skor. I liked the Skor.
Have you tried it , it was really good compared to the Heath. I am now a fan of the Skor bar.

My "K" says the darndest things!

So yesterday was an eventful day (not really eventful but for me eventful), I watched a friends 2 kids all day long from 7:30 to 3:30. All day I pondered... and made a decision, I was taking my littles to the clinic. My "Q" has had fevers for a few days and a strange rash, my "K" has what looks to be an infected toe. (Ouch). I called the hospital and I was told clinic starts at 4. So immediately we were on the move, my friend picked up her kids and we were out the door. We got to the clinic and they said "oh this doctor does not start until 5 today, but we can sign you in", so I signed in and headed for the wait. My kids decided they needed to potty. We headed down the "ALLIGATOR" (this is what K called it, she wanted to ride down the alligator) to the bathroom. Shucks it is closed for cleaning. We head back up the 'alligator' find out where the next bathroom is, head back down the 'alligator' to the next nearest bathroom. Shucks. It too is closed for cleaning. Spinning circles looking like a dear in headlights, someone decides to point me in the direction of the next nearest bathroom. Woohoo. We made it. 2 kids down, one wont go, that being "Q". It is now 4:30 so we head back, we decided to take the stairs this time. It is two sets of stairs , you walk up one and then turn corner and walk the next. We get to the top of the first set , getting ready to turn the corner when "K" announces loudly " MOM, LOOK AT THAT FAT BELLY" and pointed to someone walking in the front doors. Needless to say I pretty much ran the next set of stairs embarassed.
We got back to the waiting room, kids running and playing. "K" stops in front of the lady sitting across from us and says "MOM I DONT LIKE THAT LADY". OY! How embarassing
, I apologized to her and then had to quietly explain to "K" that we dont say these sorts of things.
Suddenly "Q" decides he needs to potty again. Luckily the first bathroom had opened up. The rest of the visit was uneventful. "K" is on antibiotic,and "Q" has viral exanthom? whatever that is. Apparently a viral infection but caused him to get a rash?
(Oh and a side note, sitting in the pharmacy there was an older lady with dark black hair and really bright lipstick. My kids refused to sit by her , and she knew it she looked at me and said "I think I scare them!"

All about "Q"

Ok. To cut his hair or not to cut his hair that is the question....

I kept asking "Q" questions and trying to talk to him, but I just knew he was ignoring me cause I could see his little head over the chair and he was watching T.V. I kept thinking he has learned way to much from his dad!
So I went to check on him. And that is what I saw.

And lastely, look at the size of the spoon he chose for his cereal. This spoon was ginormous (my own word there. sorry) next to him.

Potty Trained

I can officially say that all of my kids are diaper free. As a parent this is a fantabulous day for me. I am doing the jig. (If only you could see that!)

A different World

This is ultimately one of my favorite songs right now. I just believe that what he sings about is so true. When I think about being a kid there were so many things that we got away with that I am not so sure I would let my kids do now. Also I would watch tv on occasion but nothing like my kids want to do right now. They never go out and play , it is all nintendo and t.v. When I was younger I would disappear on my bike with my friends and we would be gone for hours. I would pop into the house to get food and that was it. Seat belts were important but not always stressed by all parents. I learned to drive on dusty back roads around the house. Unfortunately where i live everything pretty much is closed on Sunday!
Seriously, I just love this song and thought I would share.

Random Thought...

I thought that providing daycare for another person would be easy.....It is NOT easy.

Fun with Friends

Last night I invited some friends over to play Mario Kart on the Wii.

We also played Guitar Hero on the Xbox 360.

We had a blast. It is so fun sometimes to hang out with friends and laugh and gossip and just have fun (and eat a lot of good snacks).

So thanks to all my friends that came to hang and have fun. It was just what I needed.
