That me Laugh..

I went to the health food store today.
Not to buy healthy but to get dairy-free.
However, there was this guy outside that was finishing off his cig.
You know before you go into a store that will charge you out the root for gum.
Now, I am just trying to figure this one out.
Smoke-Health Food Organics store.
You know those veggies with chemicals can kill you!!

See in life you can find his annoying person who you want to beat with a bat,
while you are still driving or, you can laugh.
Today this is on the laugh list.
This critter liked to hang out in my blide spot.
I went faster..He went faster
You get the point.
Then someone totally cut me off!!
I find it funny cause these folks think they have way more important things and places.
Lucky for me I have no where to go and nothing to do.
Wait, that might be true. see former post.
But still R E S P E C T.

People make me laugh.
Some say laugh or cry.
Mine might be more like I laugh at you or a smack you with my bat.
Anger management anyone....
Really. I will stick with the laughing.

Join in with my laugh post.
I would love to read yours!!
Comment and leave me your link.

I confess:
  1. I use cloth diapers cause they are cheaper.
  2. Not so much to save the earth.
  3. I sometimes drive for hours around town just to get the kids to take a nap.
  4. Sometimes when they had already fallen asleep and sometimes to get them to sleep.
  5. I HATE winter.
  6. Snow is so over-rated. Let it snow in the mountains and leave the valleys alone!
  7. 9:00 at night is late to me.
  8. I'm boring these days.
  9. I like to stay home in my warm house and watch dumb shows with the hubby.
  10. I don't have to like you.
  11. I just want you to like me.

Pee and Poop

So I have switched the little one to cloth diapers. I used them with my first and kept them around in case of a disaster. I pulled them out when #4's diaper rash got so bad that she was bleeding. I know mama of the year. I really do change her diapers!!! So far I am really liking it and I am so loving not having to buy more diapers every month. I think I could get used to the extra $$$.

So I got some from this lady today. She has all boys. I was trying to explain to her what girls were like. I said they get mad just when someone looks at them. What I am listening to right now... "Dad, #3 is looking at me!!" Can't lie it is sooo true.

Anyways in the journey back into cloth diapers I discovered how much stuff isn't taboo when you are a mom. We just talk about poop and pee and vomit and all that over our morning beverages. Just like we used to discuss the news and current events. Wait, ok maybe that was never me but I at least pretended like I never used the bathroom. Remember those days.. Oh, back to reality I think someone here stinks.

WOW! Friday AGAIN...


I confess:

  • I am old
  • People go out and play at like 9.
  • I am about to go to bed.
  • I need sleep.
  • The kids do get up at the crack on dawn.
  • Sometimes it isn't even light outside.
  • Don't tell #3 that. She will scream and wake everyone up.
  • Her idea of light is just different I guess.
  • I decide in our first few minutes if I am interested in you.
  • My friendships are like speed dating.
  • Yes I like you, nope I don't
  • Try not the be stupid in our first meeting or it is OVER.
  • I might be judgmental??
  • I just don't have time for stupid people.
  • Sorry stupid people find yourself another friend.
  • I am super sure that I am not a stupid person myself.
  • Kinda sure.
  • Well your stupid.
  • I hear in my head, "Mom, we don't say that word."
  • Good thing only one can read that word.
  • The word is Stupid. :)

... Of The Year

First of all I think my kids belong on an allergy commercial. They are all so gross and watery and red. They are the poster kids for allergies. Poor #3 sounds like she has been smoking her entire life. Maybe 70-80 packs a day.

I don't do night time. See I clock out when the kids go to bed. Those kids all got my lovely sleeping trouble. Well, the boy sleeps pretty well but those girls are something else! My sweetest husband takes care of them all night long. I don't think there has ever been a night he got to stay in bed all night since #1 came home from the hospital. Side note, he does travel a ton and gets a super nice hotel to sleep in, so don't get feeling too bad for him!

#3 was up all night coughing and being gross. So he slept in her room taking care of her all night while I had the whole King to myself. See now he got husband of the year and father of the year all in one day, well, night.

Me on the other hand really wanted to leave the boy in the car while I went into the store. Tried really hard to convince myself a screaming four year old would be fine in the freezing car all by himself. Put down the phone, nobody needs to all the authorities, I didn't do it!! But oh it would have been nice to leave that fit throwing kid in the car and walk away. Not sure I am ever going to be mother of the year. I think I see too much of the kids to get that title. I think to be mother of the year your day limit would be 30 min. After that I am sure you will screw up to.

I am really going to try to not take the good parking spots at the store when I am alone or have only a couple of kids with me. Grrr. Some person, who was alone!!, took a prime spot from me today. ME, with three little ones, sick gross little ones. I will never do that to some poor mother again. I think every store should have a I have lost my patience and my mind special parking spot right in front of the door. Mind you that you would never get a chance to park there because I would always be parked there.

I hope that my post today has left you with some warm feelings. You can either know that there are other crazy mothers out there that think about leaving the screaming kids places. Or you can feel better about yourself because at least you haven't gotten as bad as this crazy lady! Come back tomorrow for my confessionals. You never know what you might hear.

What I learned today..

If you go out for a break,
make sure you come home AFTER bed-time

My kids can't get along for a total of 10 min.

If #1 is bothered by #2 it is ok to smack him on the head with a toy
Even if the baby is sleeping and #1 knows he will scream
like she is killing him
and I am in the tub
and the husband is gone
and she knows my naked wet screaming self is MAD!

Yes don't you wish you were my neighbor
could have watched me running around through the open windows.

Oh, the life of a mother of four little ones.

Seems like someone is always running around

Guess it was my turn!!

That time Again

I confess...
  • I am a grumpy person
  • This is why I love or hate you
  • No middle ground with me
  • Once you do something stupid you are out!
  • Until that gets to be too much work and then you are back.
  • I might be lazy and grumpy
  • I would rather do hard things than see the people I love do hard things.
  • I evaluate my day and decide if I will shower or not.
  • I really hope that it is not.
  • So much work that showering.
  • I like my husband.
  • He is very helpful.
  • Most people I hid that from because their husbands are pains in the rear.
  • I hate men that treat women like kids.
  • Watch out I might hit you with my soccer mom van.
  • Really don't stand in the street getting your mail.
  • I might swerve and hit ya.
  • Sooo I am grumpy, lazy, smelly, and violent.
  • Love it or leave it baby!

Love This Idea

Check them out! I love this.

One More Day

This last week was so hard. #1 had some dental work done and it went horribly wrong. Her tongue and gums got infected and swollen and she was soo sick. I spent a week with a little girl that would not eat or drink. She would randomly drink small amounts. It broke my heart to see her sitting at the table starving wanting to eat but not being able to eat. Really it was one of the worst weeks even. Of course the Hubs was gone, all three of the others were sick. Thank goodness my daddy came to help.
I sent the whole time thinking tomorrow has to be better. Just hold on until tomorrow. But tomorrow was not better. It often times was worse. It just kept getting worse. Until we found the best orthodontist on the planet. He fixed my little girl and made her smile again. All after hours I have to tell you. He met us at the office twice on his own time without us paying him a dime. You can be sure we will be going back.
Because of this sweet man she is back to my sweetest little girl. In her craziness she is so excited that she gets to go back and see him again. We made her appt a few weeks in the future, thinking she needed time to relax and not be scared. She is bugging me about when she can go back. Here I thought she was going to be scared forever.
Anyone else been there? When you just keep thinking tomorrow will be better? I feel like sometimes I am wishing the day away. Just wishing it to end. Things are better now and I am so thankful for those people that helped me. It will get better tomorrow? Not sure that is a good way to live!
