Get It?

Firecracker has hit that age where he likes to make up his own jokes.  Yeah, it's just as painful as it sounds.  After he makes his "joke" he says, "get it, Mom, get it?"

Lately, he has dropped the entire beginning of the joke and he'll say something like.  "I like these pants." Then he'll cracking up.  Then he'll say, "get it, Mom? 'Pants' get it? Hahah!"  

How do I respond to that?  I mean really, 'pants' is not a punch line.  I've actually gotten to where I just smile and say something like, "oh, Firecracker, you're so silly!"

Have a great day,
Ms. T

Wrestling Rules

Recently the munchkins have wanted to start wrestling with each other.  Part of me wants to stop them from doing it.  However, as the Hubs pointed out, it's good for them.  They need to learn to be able to handle rough and tumble situations.

Therefore, we had to establish ground rules.  So far we have only one rule. Our rule: If you get hurt you aren't allowed to whine and complain, because you're giving as much as you're getting.  We may have to add more as time goes on, but so far we haven't. Fingers crossed.

Have a great day!

Thank You, Coke

Have you ever heard about the My Coke Rewards program?  Basically, if you save the lids of your coke bottles or the tear away section of your 12 packs and enter the codes found there you earn points.  These points can be cashed in for all kinds of prizes.  Somethings are small others you can save up for are big.

The Hubs and I have used this program for years.  Over the years we have gotten all kinds of cool prizes.  From free 12 packs all the way up to a 50.00 Nike gift card. (The gift card was actually won from a sweepstakes).

The most recently, the Hubs and I cashed in our points and got 2 free movie tickets.  Not only did we get the tickets, we also got 2 large drinks and a large popcorn.  When I did the math it would have been around a 40 to 50 dollar date that we got for free!!

Thank you, Coke!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Load Down

Sweet Pea came to me the other day and said, "Mommy, I'm too little to load down.  When I get big like you and Daddy I'll be big enough to load down."

Me: "Sweet pea, do you mean down load?  Like down loading games on to your tablet?"

SP: *looks at me like 'duh'* Yes, Mommy, I will be able to load down just like you and Daddy.

A few days later Sweet Pea was talking to the Hubs talking all the time about 'load downing'.  The Hubs looked so confused so I interpreted her meaning for him.  He just laughed and tried to correct her.  She tried to say it right, bless her heart, she really did, but she just kept getting tongue tied.

Hahaha!  Don't make 'em grow up too fast.

Have a great day,
Ms. T

Last Day of Summer

Where in the world did this summer go?  Monday is the first day of school.  Cray- cray.  It makes me sad and excited all at once.  The munchkins are excited about school, and I'm excited about getting a routine back in our lives.  Summer has been great, but it's also been willy nilly with  no schedule.  I do much better on a schedule, and so do the kids.

Well, ready or not here comes school! 

Get ready, my friends,
Ms. T

A Turtle's Sense of Direction?

A few months ago, my older sister, Ree, my older brother, Mr. Pickles, his wife, our kids and I drove (not all of us were in the same vehicle.  Mr pickle and his crew drove separately.) a few hours north to meet my younger brother, Ham, his wife and kids at a mutual destination.  Ham and his family live very far from us, so when he was 6 hours away we drove 3 and he drove 3 to meet.

We all met at a park and let the kids run and play for awhile. After awhile we decided to leave and go get some dinner.  We were in a town that I didn't know how to get around in and I have a TERRIBLE sense of direction.  I was planning on following my brothers.  However, they got out of the parking lot before I did and I didn't see which way they had turned.  Before we got in the cars we had decided upon a place to eat and Mr. Pickles had commented how easy it was to get there.  Because of this I had figured I could at least deduce which direction they went and catch up to them.

I made a turn as I was calling Mr. Pickles. Once I told him where I was he told me I had turned the wrong direction. *Shocker* I was frustrated and ranted to my sister about my awful sense of direction.  This is the conversation that followed.

Me: See I have the stinkin' sense of direction of a turtle!
Ree: Umm I didn't know that turtles had a bad sense of direction?
M: Oh, well, I really don't know if they have a bad sense of direction, but it seems that the would.
Ree: Uh, ooookkaaaayyy?
M: Well, look at them.  They don't seem like they'd know where they were going.  They always seem to get into the worst predicaments.
Ree: I guess that is true.


Mind you this conversation was uttered around mouthfuls of giggles.

Have a great day!
Ms. T
