Didn't Anticipate That!

I took a shower in the boys bathroom the other day only to discover they didn't have any soap in it.

So I did what any good mom would do and left them a reminder note in their shower.

Well. That's one thing I never anticipated having to do as a parent.

Sheesh.  Nasty boys.

I was looking for a picture and came across this one. 

Aw.  :)

What He Does In His Spare Time of Not Playing Football

When Owen isn't playing football, he's constantly talking on the phone to his friends.

Mostly chatting about football.  Shocking!

I heard him tell his friend the other day that he was mad at him for being mean to him during football at recess.

His friend said he was sorry but that he was hungry and he has no control over himself when he's hungry.

Using His Noggin

This past weekend, Owen was bored and wanted Ken to take him somewhere fun.  Ken asked him what he wanted to do but Owen didn't know.

So he got on Yahoo answers and searched for fun things to do for kids in F'burg.

And the answer was Funland.

Fun for the boys.

Not so much for Ken.  :p

And then Ken took them to Krispy Kreme to get some donuts.

Yes.  That's an elephant hat that Shane is wearing.  He won it at Funland.  I think that he got it just to needle his family because of the election coming up.  :p

Cause he rocks like that.

Way to use your noggin, Owen.  :up:

What in the Heck?

I'd like to know why it's January 15th and there are weeds growing in my yard.

And a couple of my flowers have started to rebloom. In addition to the weeds growing.

What the heck?!?!

What Boys Do

I give up.

I accept it. 

I can't change it.

This is what boys do.

And this.

And this.


I can't say I wasn't warned.

I was.

I just thought I would escape it.

Little Blue Towel

You just keep appearing all over the place in locations that you just don't belong and aren't welcomed. 

Little blue towel, don't take his personally, but I think I hate you.

It's really not you little blue towel.  No one warts to claim you therefore I have no choice but to believe that you are the naughty one.  Not them.

Cause none of them have ever seen you.

Just ask them.  They'll tell you.

Crisis Averted!

The good news is that Shane actually started the dishwasher on his own free will.

The bad news is that he used concentrated dishwashing liquid.

The good news is he was so proud of himself that he showed me exactly what he used.

The better news is that I was able to stop the dishwasher and get the detergent out of the cup because he had just started it.

Whew. Crisis averted!

How many times have I told them to not put their stupid wet towels on the floor.

"Them" being those little people that live in my house.  You know.  My very own personal paybacks.  


As you can see, they really listen to me.



So.  If you're wondering how many times I have told them, it's been at least a bazillion.

Including this time.  

It can also be referred to as "umpteenth."

And if you're not familiar with that quantity, it's a lot.  Certainly enough for them to know to hang their wet towels and not throw them on the floor.

But they will deny it.  And roll their eyes at me while they do.

It Was Bound To Happen

Sometimes you're reminded of the passage of time (and how quickly it goes) in the weirdest of places. 

Like the bookstore for example.
It was bound to happen.  

Just not sure I'm ready for all of this.
