Aahhh, Sweet Summer Time

Tomorrow is the final day of Mom's Day Out for the '08-'09 school year. Bittersweet. While I've been slowly training my two and a half year olds to sleep past 6:30am, I am still not sure what I'm going to do with these kids all summer. It should be easier than last year. At least we can go places without me having to chase down two runaway monkeys going in different directions. This year we have the threat of the "NO NO stick."
There will be swimming and Popsicles. Lots of Popsicles and snow cones. I'm hoping it doesn't get brutally hot-like that's possible in Texas. We have birthday parties every month, so that will add to the excitement. Play dates with friends are a lifesaver for mom! Holy man -as he prefers to call himself- is starting to color and loves to play with his cars. Big E talks non-stop and is calming down in only a way that he can. Bubbie keeps himself occupied by learning how to make rude obnoxious noisy that drive his momma crazy...with NO help from dad of course! And Pods is always working on a project of some sort.
Lord willing, it will be a fun summer and I won't have a nervous breakdown two weeks into it this year!! 61 days until school starts!!

Life's a Little Crazy

It's the end of another school year. It would seem that the end of the year would be less chaotic that the beginning of a new year. However, everything seems crammed into two weeks and then all of my kids are thrown back at me for three months of summer "fun." This weekend includes two days of garage sales, circus day, one final school day, a dance rehearsal, recital, and our cousin coming to visit. And to start the "fun" off right, here are a few funnies for you!

I guess this is what a real "manwich" looks like.

Oh, if I could only get my hands on this suit!!

I've been trying to cook more lately. You know, the "real" meals. My little picky eaters are making it very hard for me. It's frustrating to spend all that time preparing a meal that no one will eat. Anyways, tonight was one of those chicken nuggets and corn kind of evenings. While I'm loading up Pod's plate, she looks up at me and says, "I love chicken nuggets! They're the best thing you make." UGH!

Well, the kiddo's and I have been locked up in this house all day. We're all going nuts! We haven't seen the sun in, well, I can't remember the last time. Our backyard looks like a lake and we watched one of the biggest hail storms since the summer of 1994 today. The kids have gone to bed now. Every time it thunders, Andrew flies under his comforter screaming, "Boom! Boom!" And to top it all off, school has been canceled ALL week due to the swine flu! I had three weeks of sanity left and now one of those weeks is gone...and I'm paying for keeping my own kids. I'm praying there aren't many days of rain left in the forecast. We might be playing out in it soon.

In honor of all this insanity, and the fact that I'm bored out of my mind, I found some humor for you to enjoy....

Wouldn't want to venture down this road alone....

Better hope your boss isn't in charge of traffic control....

I'm wondering if you have to "qualify" to live in this community?

This is kind of cool, even though I'd be caught red handed...

hmm...They might have a more fun childhood...

This is the direction I go in all day...

Come back tomorrow for more funnies!!

Summer Sippin'

At our last Girl's Night Out, we were all sharing gross kid stories. My friend, Mindi, who is a second grade teacher had one of the best that I've heard in a long time.

She was telling us about a co-teacher who is a germ-a-phobic. She has to sanitize everything. There are no boogers or snot on her kid's desks! All hands must be washed and dried properly. You get the idea.

Well, she was working in her classroom after school and enjoying her daily Sonic drink. She left the room and returned a bit later to find one of her students in the room. He started looking at her with a mischievous smile and giggling. She said, "Johnny, what's so funny?" He replied, "I snuck a sip of your sonic drink." She was completely disgusted and said, "Now, Johnny, why would you do such a thing? You know it's bad to drink after someone else. You could get their germs and get really sick." Blah, Blah, Blah.... That's when little Johnny started laughing even more and said, "But Mrs. Martha, I've been doing it all year!" That's when Mrs. Martha's eyeballs popped out. Poor teachers! He! He!
