Dramatic Much?

Sweet pea is a dramatic girl.  Don't get me wrong, she can be tough as nails.  However, she is also a girl and therefore allowed to change her mind as often as she wants.  One day she may face plant on the sidewalk and get up and act like nothing happened.  The next day, Sweet pea may brush against a sand spur and cry like the world is ending.  

The other day Sweet pea fell and cracked her knee while she was trying to get ready for bed.  It was a pretty nasty little bruise, but usually by morning she has brushed the injury off and life goes on.  However, she woke up the next day and kept saying she couldn't walk because, "her leg was broken". Hahaha!  She went on and on about her "broken leg" all day.  Crazy girl!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

I Am _____________

Last Sunday, our pastor preached a message about how people find their identity.  His point was that we need to find our identity in Christ and not through the roles we play in this world.  However, it made me start thinking about all the different roles I play.  I am many different things.

I am___________:

- A child of God
- Daughter
- Wife
- Mommy
- Friend
- Chief Officer of Location (ie. finder of lost stuff)
- Confidant
- Teacher
Bob Vila's competition 

So many roles and I wouldn't give up any of them.

Have a great day!
Ms. T

I am Not Bob Vila

 Before Christmas, the Hubs and I picked up a new faucet for the kid's bathroom.  Then the Hubs got sick and didn't feel up to replacing it.  Now that the Hubs is back to work, his hours have been ridiculously crazy.  Last week he had several days that he didn't get home til after 10pm despite having started work at 5am.  (and by the way he is salary, not paid by the hour.  Let's just say his boss is a big fat jerk.)  Needless to say, the Hubs had neither the time nor the inclination to replace the faucet.

I decided the other day that I was going to try and conquer the faucet project all by myself.  Now, I get grand plans in my head from time to time, but they don't usually work out so well.  

I started in on the project sure that it was only going to take an hour or two.  Well, I encountered several issues I didn't anticipate. (of course you rarely anticipate troubles right?)  Anyway, by the next day I had the new faucet installed with no leaks!!!!  

I was soooo proud of myself.  I ended up calling my family and singing my own version of "we are the champions".  I sang it so much that Sweet Pea was running around the house singing, "my Mommy is a champion!" =)

Bob Vila better watch his back.  I'm on my way up, baby! :)

Have a great day!

Back Handed Compliment

My Mama is always saying things to people like, "you're my very favorite Ms. T" or (to my Daddy the only man she has ever been married to) "Honey, you're my very favorite Husband!"  You get the gist.  

Anyway, apparently Sweet Pea has been hanging around my Mama too much lately.  The other day Sweet Pea came to me and looked up at me very lovingly and said, "Mommy, you are the best Mommy that lives in this house."  Hahahaha!!  

Have a great day!
Ms. T

The Ones With the Holes

The other day, Sweet pea comes to me and we have this conversation:

S: Mommy, I want the ones with the holes.
M: What do you mean?
S: The ones with the holes.
M: Ok, what has holes?
S: Come with me, Mommy
M: Ok....
She leads me to the kitchen cupboard and points to a box of Honey Nut Cheerios and says, "I want the ones with the holes!"

Hahahaha!!! 

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Lloyd

Firecracker has recently been into Ninjago cartoons (which by the way I have stopped letting him watch, because it's started to get really unsettling, talking about the "dark overlord" who is a spirit that is trying to possess someone.  Seriously?  In a freakin' cartoon?!).  Anyway, one of the characters on Ninjago is named Lloyd.  The other day we had this conversation: 

Firecracker: "Mommy, my new name is Lloyd." 
Me: "Ok, Lloyd"
F: "It's easier"
M: "It's easier for me to call you Lloyd than Firecracker?"
F: "Yep"

Hahaha!  Crazy kid ;)

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Is It Sleeping?

 While we were at my Father in law's house over Thanksgiving we had an interesting experience.  My Father in law's brother, Uncle Mont, came over.  Uncle Mont is an odd duck.  He loves to hunt and fish and just about every other red neck activity.  Uncle Mont lives in a world of his own.  In this world, everyone is extremely interested in his entire life story.  And everyone wants to see every animal/ fish that he has ever killed.

Anyway, while we were there Uncle Mont brought over a deer he had just killed and wanted help butchering.  He left the deer's head on the deck right out side the glass door of the dining room.  

Sweet pea looked outside and saw it.  She called me into the dining room and said, "Mommy!  Look!  Shhhhh it's sleeping!"

I looked at it, nearly swallowed my tongue, and said," hmmm, looks like it.  Let's go back in the living room...."

Yeah.....

Have a great day!
Ms. T
