Girl Day

On Saturday the Hubs took Firecracker out for a boy day, so Sweet pea and I went to get pedicures once again.  Oh how she enjoyed herself!  She asked if we could get pedicures every day!  My Sis-in-law said if she wants that she'd better get a job! =)  Here's a pic of her enjoying herself and then a picture of our pretty toes!

After our pedicures we went and bought a Strawberry Shortcake movie, went home and popped popcorn and had a movie night.  It was a great day!

Have a great day!

Lunches

I am all about making my kids self sufficient.  As a result they are packing their own lunches this school year.  Last year Firecracker was responsible for his own lunch but I packed Sweet pea's.  I was also lax about making the lunches the night before. So we'd always end up rushing to get it done in the mornings. This year we have started packing lunches the night before.  The other day Firecracker asked my sister, "Auntie T, did you know you can pack your lunch in the night time?!"  Apparently this is big news.


Have a great day!
Mrs. T

Designer Moms

I've discovered there is a breed of mother that can be called none other than "designer moms".  These mothers are decently easy to spot.  Just check for these signs:

* They wear clothes that don't have kid's snot on them.
* Their children don't have snot on them
* They tend to wear hip/ chic clothing (because they don't get kid snot on it)
* They have actually done their hair
* Their kid's hair is done (if it's a girl it's usually with a giant bow)
* They tell you that their kid eats only organic foods, as they watch your child eat a cheeto that has been on the floor for an indeterminate amount of time.
* Their children are usually signed up for 11 billion extra curricular activities.

These ladies seem so put together.  I envy them as I sit across the way in my yoga pants and t-shirt that has stains on it.  (To be fair I'm as messy as my kids are so it's a 50-50 chance that I'm the one that got myself that nice big ol' stain you see on whatever I'm wearing) with my hair in a pony tail watching my kids search the floor for stray cheetos.  Oh well!  My kids didn't get a "designer mom" they got a plain ol' Walmart mom =).

Have a great day!

NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

It is with great regret that I am penning this post.  Monday is the dreaded day.  The day we go back to school. (insert sobbing here)  How is it possible that the summer is gone already?  I mean we have done a lot and made the most of our summer, but still how can it be over already?  I don't want to go back to bedtimes and homework and water bottles and alarm clocks and pencils and back packs and packed lunches.................. NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!  (Resigned sigh) 
However, like all mere mortals I must relent to these forces and say adios to beaches and sunscreen and roller coasters and sleeping in (insert weeping) and spending the day in my jammas and park days and splash pads......... Sad, sad, sad day...........

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Mani- Pedis

A few weeks ago I took Sweet pea to get her very first mani-pedi.  The salon I took her to has a special pedicure station just for kids.  Oh my word!  It was so adorable and Sweet pea about came out of her skin with how much she loved it.  When we got finished and were about to leave she asked me if we could take the polish off of our toes and do it all over again.  Haha!  I will definitely be taking her to do that again.

Have a great day!

Bedtime Stories

One night not too long ago, I had put Sweet pea and Firecracker to bed, then came into the living room and sat down.  After a few minutes Sweet pea came out for some reason.  I told her she needed to go back to bed.  A little while later she came out again.  I got onto her and told her she needed to get into bed and not get back out.  Her response:

"But, Mommy, my booty is keeping me awake!  I keep trying to get it to go to sleep, but it won't.  I'm telling it bedtime stories and singing it songs, but it is keeping me up!"

I had THE HARDEST time trying not to laugh at this excuse.  I'm proud of myself, because I held it together and warned her that she needed to ignore her booty and go to sleep anyway.

I've heard some crazy stuff, but that takes the cake!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Spreading the Butter

I am all about teaching my kids self sufficiency.  Therefore, both munchkins can make their own frozen waffles and their own bagels.  This makes school mornings easier, and I allow them to make these items snack items occasionally, if we don't have any other food items in the house.

That being said, Sweet pea is great at making her own bagels.  The other day she had one that she was getting ready to butter.  I didn't think anything of it and went into a different room to put something away.  I got side tracked for a few minutes.  When I came back into the kitchen, she had butter all over her hands!  She decided that it was easier to scoop the butter out of the butter dish with her hands and smear it onto the bagel rather than using the knife!!!  Oi vay!  We had A LOT of cleaning up to do to say the least.  What am I going to do with these children?

Have a great day!
Ms. T
