Matching Socks

I don't match socks.  I'm sorry, I despise laundry enough as it is, I'm not going to spend hours more just trying to match stupid socks.  Who cares what your socks look like?  Your shoes cover the majority of your socks anyway.  

My kids have learned to deal with the non matching socks.  A few weeks ago Sweet pea came out of her room dressed for the day.  She was all excited.  She said, "Mommy, look!  My socks match!"  This cracked me up.  When I was a kid my mom always made sure we had matching socks (she is seriously a better mom than I am). Oh how times have changed.

Have a great day!

27.00 Balloons

I know I've written several posts about Disney lately, bear with me through at least one more.  

When we were getting ready to leave the park, the kids saw the lady selling the big, fancy, Disney balloons and asked if they could have one.  Mind you they were really good all day (for the most part, there were a few times where we were waiting in line they got very bored and started to act up), and they hadn't asked for anything (aside from ice cream) all day.  The Hubs and I were already planning on letting them get a small souvenir so we agreed.  

We walked across the little street and asked the lady how much the balloons cost.  She replied that they cost 12.00 to 15.00 a piece!  I nearly swallowed my tongue! 12.00 for a freakin' balloon?!  However, the Hubs and I had already committed to buying the kids each a balloon.  So we swallowed our astonishment and ended up paying 27.00 for 2 balloons.  RIDICULOUS.  Oh well, it will be years before we go back and get gouged again. ;)

Have a great day!

Cinderella

While at Disney World on Labor day this year, the only characters Sweet pea was interested in meeting were the princesses.  The others were okay to walk past, but stand in line to meet them? Nah!

While we were standing in line to meet Cinderella, Sweet pea was so excited.  She turned to me and said, "Mommy, Cinderella is so beautiful I can't even look at her!"  She is such a sweet girl.

Have a great day!

Monorail!

When we went to Disney World on Labor day, the kids were so excited.  While walking up to the monorail, Firecracker said, "Cool!  A train!"  I replied, "It's actually called a monorail."  Both Firecracker and Sweet pea cried, "Yay!  We get to ride a monorail!!"  It bode well for the rest of the day that they were so excited for the most mundane part of the day =).

Have a great day!

DISNEY!

When I was about 20 I started a tradition of going to Disney World every year on Labor Day.  I love Disney, always have and most likely always will.  After the Hubs and I got married we continued the tradition.... Until we had kids.  You'd think, "Kids love Disney why wouldn't you take them?"  Ummm because it's EXPENSIVE!  We took Firecracker with us the first two years, however, once he turned three we decided we'd wait a year before we went again.  The last time we went into the park was when Firecracker was four and Sweet pea was 2.  Therefore, this trip was a BIG DEAL!  

We had a grand time riding the rides and experiencing all things Disney.  I don't really know if Firecracker remembered his last trip to Disney, but he will definitely remember this one!  Hopefully, we will be able to go again in a couple of years when Sweet pea will have a better chance at remembering the trip.

Here are a couple pics one from 3 years ago and one from this year.  

 

Have a great day!

Least Observant Person Ever- Kid Version


 If you have read this blog for a decent amount of time you may remember that I am the least observant person ever.  I never thought of this as being a trait that would be passed down to my children.  Unfortunately, it seems Sweet pea is already showing signs of becoming the second least observant person ever.

A few weeks ago we were going to my parent's house to swim.  I remembered that the kids had blow up pool rafts that were still in their boxes.  I figured the kids would love to have them at the pool so I blew them up (yes, I did this before we went, because we have an air compressor and I'd much rather let that sucker blow them up than me have to do it.) and the kids took them to the van for me.  

When I got to the van I noticed Sweet pea had put her raft directly in front of her seat allowing herself no leg room.  I picked up the raft and proceeded to put it in the back of the van.  After about 10 minutes of driving down the road Sweet pea started freaking out.  "Mommy, I don't know where my raft is!"  Mind you she was sitting in her car seat when I took it out and put it in the back of the van.  SHE WATCHED ME DO IT!

After I explained that yes, we did have it with us she calmed down.  However, now I worry about her unobservantness (pretty sure that's not a real word anywhere but in my head).  I sincerely hope she doesn't end up being unobservant for the rest of her life.

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Lego Zip Line

The other day I was on Pinterest and saw this idea for a  Lego zip line.

We decided to give it a go.  The kids and I went to Lowes and picked up a clothes line pulley, came home and got to work.  Firecracker was in charge of building a base for our Lego man to ride on.  Once that was done we got busy connecting the base and tested it out.  It was a resounding success!  Firecracker is loving it!  So for about 3.00 (we already had the clothes line so I'm not including that in the price) we have a new constructive toy.  Pretty cool I'd say!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

P.s. if you wanna try this make sure your Lego base is heavy enough to keep the pulley on the rope and not flopping to the side.
