My Mama's Birthday! (2 days early)

Sunday is a fabulous day that should be marked down in all of history. Why? you ask. Because today is my Mama's birthday!!!

My Mama is so wonderful.  She's godly, a prayer warrior, sweet, caring, corny (believe me I don't think I've ever met anyone cornier, but it's endearing), wise, patient, unique, consistent (my family's way of saying predictable, it's the optimist's view point), optimistic the list could go on.  I can't tell you how blessed I am to have her as my Mom.  

When I was a kid she always took the time to talk to me.  Not just things like, "stop running with the scissors", but she wanted to KNOW me.  And she wanted to get to know my friends.  She spent hours with us just talking or playing board games. My Mama took an interest in me.  She wanted to know my likes, my dislikes etc.  She came to all my basketball and volleyball games in High school.  She was at every school play and every fundraiser.  My Mama is one of a kind.

I really can't say enough good things about my Mama, because I love her so much.  She is not just my Mama, she is also one of my dearest and closest friends.  God blessed me beyond measure when He allowed me to be born to my wonderful parents.


Happy Birthday, Mama!  I love you more than words can express!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
Ms. T

New Englander?

I have come to the conclusion that the Hubs and I are raising a New Englander.  All of a sudden out of nowhere, Sweet pea has started pronouncing words strangely.  

Instead of saying shower she will say "showa" (read it in a New England accent).  Or powder is "powda".  There are several more instances I could share.  For instance toilet paper is "toilet papa".

Where did she get this?!  The Hubs and I have no clue.  Sweet pea just started it out of the blue one day, and now that is how she talks.... Weird

Have a great day!

Lunch Box Smell

The kids have multiple lunch boxes, because sometimes one gets left at school, or in the van or just plain lost.  An extra lunch box or two is always good to have on hand for just this reason. Occasionally, one of the lunch boxes will have the "lunch box smell".

You may be asking yourself "what is the 'lunch box smell?'"  It is  hard to describe. It isn't really a bad smell. I really don't even know how to describe it.  I've only ever truly noticed it in the old school plastic lunch boxes.  And it happens when it's been used with out being washed out for like a week of solid use.

Anywho, the other day I was unpacking one of the lunch boxes and it had that distinct "lunch box smell".  It transported me back to when I was a little kid. It made me smile.  Even though it's not my favorite smell in the world, it's funny how one little sniff can bring back so many memories.

Have a great day!

Emergency Shoes

I know normal people don't have an "emergency shoe stash" in their vehicle.  I know I'm not normal, I came to terms with this a loooooonnnng time ago.  Allow me to tell you the story of how the emergency shoe stash came into existence.

Once upon a time (about a year ago), I had arrived at Firecracker's school with Sweet pea in tow.  We were there because I was volunteering that day.  When we got inside I realized Sweet pea didn't have any shoes!  We had left the house in a rush and Sweet pea was being kind of cranky so I just carried her to the car.  Thus the emergency shoe stash was born.

Our emergency shoes are really just cheap pairs of flip flops.  Not ideal foot wear, but at least the kids would have shoes if for some reason they didn't have any.

The other Wednesday night we were headed off to church and once again Sweet pea was being cranky so I just carried her to the car and loaded her in.  Off we went on our merry way, until we got to church and realized Sweet pea had no shoes!  I pulled out the flip flops, thankful I had something for her to put on her feet.  However, there were a few problems.

Sweet pea does not walk well in regular flip flops.  She shuffles along to keep them on her feet.  While this wouldn't be a huge problem for some church occasions, Wednesday nights are different.  Wednesday nights are fun nights at church for the kids.  They get to run around in the gym and play all sorts of games.  They also move from one building to the next for Bible time.

Now our emergency shoe stash includes a pair of tennis shoes for Sweet pea......

Have a great day!

October

I've decided that it is October.  I'm tired of this year slipping by so quickly.  I feel like in my brain it should be about Octoberish.  So Happy Halloween everyone, because I'm not ready for it to be Christmas yet.

Have a great day!

Road Trip

The week of Thanksgiving our little family drove 12 hours to visit the Hub's dad.  I love my Father in law.  He is truly awesome.  However, I DO NOT love the 12 hours it takes us to get to his house.

I am not a huge road trip fan.  I'm good on trips that are 3 or 4 hours long.  I can stand trips that are 5 or 6 hours long.  Trips that are 7 to 8 hours long I start getting antsy.  Anything longer than 8 hours and I go crazy.  Not a fun kind of crazy.  Now, add 2 kids that are cranky because they don't like driving longer than an hour and it's not the most amazing experience.

I'm so thankful we don't do long road trips longer than once or twice a year.

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Happy Birthday, Hubs!

*Mmhmnm* Years ago today was a magical day.  On this day, a wonderful, sweet, handsome, kind, caring, amazing man was born into this world. 

My Hubs is such an awesome man!  I love him to bits.  I'm so thankful God gave him to me!  

The Hubs is a fantastic father, an attentive husband and he strives to live a life that is pleasing to God.  As far as hubbies go I hit the jack pot ;).

Happy Birthday, My Love!!

Love,
Your ridiculous, head case of a wife

(P.s. Technically, the Hub's birthday is tomorrow, but since I don't post on Saturdays I'm posting this today :)
