Keep your cash, Mommy.

I love my kids. They are so funny. I could blog on things that are said in this house about every half an hour!
Recently my mother in law bought the kids some play food and the pretending is in full swing! We've been playing restaurant a lot lately and while ordering my meal (cheesecake with extra cheese LOL), I asked, "how much do I owe you sir?" to which my 4 year old said (in a very serious voice), "Oh no. You can keep your cash in my restaurant, Mommy."
I thought that was so sweet. What I loved more was about 5 minutes later my hubby ordered his food and my son said, "That'll be $50 dad." HAHA! Moms eat free!

Well... that's true.

My boys are obsessed with making robots out of their trio blocks they got for Christmas. Every morning they dump them all out and get busy building.

So, they were building as usual when my 3 year old came running into the kitchen to tell me, "mom, come see my robot! He gots a 'peenuss'!!"
I did my best to laugh on the inside.... I said, "well... that's true. Although, I don't think robots have a penis." He said, "oh. That's funny." He removed the unnecessary part and building went back to usual. Oh, I love boys.

Caffeine... (might as well be crack)

I've become a pretty healthy eater. I fight it everyday, but usually I win! Today begins a day of no caffeine... ugh.
I'm having trouble with endometriosis and one of the suggestions is to give up caffeine because of the negative effects it has on your body. (especially women and hormones)
I love coffee. Love it. Love it. Love it.
This morning I made my decaff... not the same. However, still tasty. It wasn't until about 1pm today that I realized I may die from lack of caffeine.
My head is pounding, I feel fatigued, and I can't believe how much I've depended on caffeine to help get through the day!
I will keep you posted... some people say that when they gave up caffeine they got energy like you wouldn't believe. If they are lying I am going to personally hunt them each down.
So, here goes nothing.

You better get happy in the same pants you got mad in!

I have a lot of favorite quotes from my dad. I may have to do several blogs to cover my favorites! For today, "You better get happy in the same pants you got mad in!" is my go-to quote.
I've been struggling lately with not feeling well, which makes me grumpy. We had a doctors appointment today and it left us with some decisions, but the point is, I'm going to be wearing "these pants" for awhile and I may as well be happy in them. :-)

If you can't say nothin' nice....

I've been in a bit of a funk lately. I'm having a hard time seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on many things lately.
However, I do know that God is in control. So, life goes on and the kids make me laugh several times a day! You can't beat that.

So, my kids love the PBS Cat in the Hat cartoon. It's very cute! They did one recently about bears and hibernation. The bear ate and ate, burped and ate some more to get ready to hibernate. Later that day I was making dinner and munching on food as I cooked. My middle kid, P came in and said, "Hey mom, are you going to hibernate?" I said, "ummm. no."
He then asked with all sincerity, "Then why are you eating and eating?"
I put my food down.

Where did all the Girliness come from???

I was sure that I would have all boys. I was good with that! I love boys! I love the roughness, the naughtiness, the bravery, and so on.
So, when we went for a sonogram with our 3rd pregnancy I was floored when the tech said, "That is definitely a baby girl!" It's not that I was sad, just stunned. Then my husband leaned down and whispered, "That's it. You're homeschooling." HAHA! He was already having visions of our little beauty and the boy trouble to come.
So, here she is. One year old and just about the girliest little thing you've ever seen. She's dainty, she's sassy, and she's fabulous.
I love her.

Can it get any more girlie than checking your weight? ;-)

Ummm. akward.

My oldest boy, we call him O, is so sweet. He used to be extremely shy and nervous. He's got a huge heart and loves people so much. For the last few months he has made sure to smooch just about everyone he is around. The problem is that he will smooch you anywhere. If you have your hands full or your heading out the door, there's a good chance that you're gonna get a kiss right on your rump. He has no idea that people may find that weird. I've tried to explain that it's more common to give people a kiss on the cheek, but he says, "Well, MOM then it's not really a suprise!" True. It does seem to be quite the surprise to get a kiss on the booty. My sister, Farm Chick says to leave him alone! She said, "He's little and sweet! Leave him alone!" I, on the other hand, am tired of feeling embarrassed when people look at me like, "what are you teaching this kid?"
My hubby thinks it's funny that he generally kisses his hand. As O reached for daddy's hand and smooched his knuckles, my husband said "I feel like I'm in a russian Mafia!"
Sweet. Man we are cool.

Surely they're exaggerating...

So before I became a mom I remember hearing things from parents that I thought could not possibly be true, I thought they must be exaggerating when they said things like:

I was up ALL night with our little one.... I now know this to be true.

I even had it in my hair! ("It" can be whatever you imagine) and yes... this is true.

One time I even read a quote from a mom saying that she finds it depressing that after her baby, when she's goes to sleep on her side her tummy now lays next to her like a small pet.... *sigh*... this one is proven true. (If you're one of those freakos who leaves the hospital wearing your skinny jeans then please stop reading and slap yourself for me.)

I'm just constantly amazed at motherhood. It's exhausting and sometimes smelly. It's also the most beautiful thing in all the world. I thank my Heavenly Father for allowing me to be a mom.

My SUPERMAN and his Birthday

My hubby's birthday is this week and it makes me want to sing and dance! He is AMAZING. He loves me. Like for real. Loves me when I'm grouchy, when I'm not looking so hot, when I'm being a nut... doesn't matter. He loves me. All the time. He's my best friend, my prince charming.
He is an amazing father. Like the kind of guy who plays superheros for hours, chases them when he's exhausted, plays tea party with our little girl, and loves them unconditionally.
He's crazy Hot too. Gets more attractive to me by the minute. I love his strong arms, beautiful eyes and pretty much everything else! And he's all mine! ;-)

So hubby, Happy Birthday. It's one of the best days of the whole year. I literally praise God for the day you were born and the man that you are. I love you more than I can say.
