Let's All Get Along

Nothing brings children closer than a shared hatred of bedtime.  

Their little minds think something along these lines:

-Mommy says I'm supposed to be getting ready for bed.  
-I'm all ready for bed, and Mom hasn't told me to get INTO bed yet.  
-I wanna play.  
-(somehow the sibling enters into playtime)  
-I want to be nice to him/her because if we fight Mommy will realize we aren't in bed yet. 

If you are a parent of multiple children you will know this to be true.  I guess it's nice that they have something that brings them together into a united front.

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Early

Back story- It is a rare occurrence that we are early.  Before the kids came along, the Hubs and I were never late.  Now.... I'm lucky if I squeeze in on time.  

Now onto the main event-  The other day, the kids and I made it out of the house and were on our way to school early! I congratulated them and told them how proud I was of them.  All the sudden from the back seat I hear Firecracker pipe up with, "Mommy, what is 'early'?"

Oh goodness!  What a sad statement... I'm going to have to work harder at being early!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Sweet Tooth

We have known for quite sometime that Sweet pea has a sweet tooth.  If there is anything remotely sweet near she will find it and stick to your side until it's gone and its container has been licked clean!

The other day, Sweet pea was hungry for a snack and was searching the cupboard.  She came to me and said, "Mommy, can I have some cake?"  When I turned around she was holding a box of cake mix.  I said, "sorry, sweet girl, that isn't cake, it's cake mix".  To which she replied, "mmmmm I like cake mix!" Then she made a slurping sound like she was gonna lick it all up.  Oh dear!  What am I gonna do with her?

Have a good day!
Ms. T

Daddy Honey

Apparently, I call the Hubs "honey" more often than I realize.  Of course this is not a bad thing, it's just something my children have recently brought to my attention.  They have gone about it in their own special ways, but they have both talked about the fact that "honey" is Daddy's name.  Here are their ways of showing me:

Firecracker

Me: Firecracker, would you please go turn off the kitchen light?
Firecracker: ok
M: thanks, hon
F: shew, I thought you were going to call me 'honey'.
M: why would that be bad?
F: because 'honey' is Daddy's name.

Sweet pea (on a completely different day, before she heard the conversation with Firecracker. And these instances were far enough apart for Firecracker not to get the idea from her.)

Sweet pea:  Mommy, when will Daddy Honey be home?
Me: soon

(and for about 2 weeks every time Sweet pea referred to the Hubs it was always 'Daddy Honey')

Munchkins are always paying waaaayyyyyy more attention than we think they are!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Whinese

The other day I was browsing Pinterest and read a pin that said, "I'd love to help you, but I don't speak Whinese".  I have decided that shall be my new motto!!

My munchkins, Sweet pea especially, have become fluent in Whinese lately. I can't stand it.  I tell them I can't understand them until they talk to me without whining.  It does help some, so I guess I should be thankful for that....

Any other Mommies out there that have this issue?

Have a great day!

Pin-aholic

I have become a pinaholic.  Seriously, it's a sickness.  Some of you may be asking yourself what a pinaholic is.  Here is a definition of a pinaholic:  someone who is inexplicably addicted to Pinterest

It has gotten bad.  It's to the point where the other day the Hubs and I were playing around and he was like, "give in, or I'll block pinterest with the fire wall".  I was like, "(gasp!) you wouldn't!"
He assured me he would, so I did give in.  I'm hopelessly addicted.

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Beach Boys

Awhile ago I was craving some Beach Boys music.  My Daddy loves the Beach Boys and so I grew up listening to them.  Well, I listened to the oldies station for days and never heard them. I was so disappointed.  I finally decided to buy one of their c.d.s.

Since then the kids and I listen to the c.d. about once a week or so. Lately, it has been MUCH more often.  Firecracker loves the song, "Let's Go Surfing Now" and "409".  Sweet pea too will ask for songs, but they differ depending on the day.

Listening to the kids sing their own versions of these songs cracks me up.  The other day, Sweet pea was singing "409" and her lyrics went something like this: 
"giddy up, giddy up four oh line. Don't touch my four oh line...."
=)

Firecracker is better he gets most of the lyrics right but the other day I had to correct him and tell him it was "409" not four oh time.

Haha!  I Love my silly kiddos.

Have a good day!
Ms. T
