Real Soldiers

The other day the kids and I were out running errands.  I had to run to Salvation Army to drop some things off.  When I mentioned to the kids that our next stop was the Salvation Army, Firecracker got all excited and said, "We get to meet real soldiers?!"  It took me a minute to figure out what he was talking about.  Once I realized he thought we were going to see a real army I had to explain the differences between a real army and the Salvation Army.  The whole thing made me laugh so hard.  Gotta love the munchkins

Have a great day!

Remember When?

Sweet pea has hit a stage I didn't know was actually a thing.  (Maybe it's not, maybe it's just her.  I don't know, all I know is it's a thing with Sweet pea.)  She is constantly asking me, "Mommy, remember when...?"   And inevitably it's something that has happened within the last 24 hours.  Most likely it is something that has happened in the last hour.  Here is an example of a conversation just after going to the store:

Sweet pea: Mommy
Me: Yes
Sweet pea: Do you remember when we were at the store?
Me: Yes it was just a few minutes ago
Sweet pea: I liked it there
etc. etc.

I really don't get it, but whatever.  

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Cabinet Climbing

A few posts ago I promised you some stories about my children's crazy antics.  Hold onto your horses, because here is a doozy.

The kids and I were at the school.  I was finishing up my teacherly duties for the day.  Firecracker went into a room where we keep a supply cabinet.  He was in there for awhile, but I didn't really think anything about it.  All the sudden I heard a loud CRASH.  I panicked thinking he had somehow pulled the large cabinet onto himself.  

When I opened the door I realized he was fine, he had only knocked a container off the wall.  I asked him what he was doing that he knocked the container off the wall.  He didn't reply, so I asked him again.  Finally, he opened his mouth and showed me the remnants of a piece of chocolate candy.  I was flabbergasted, because the only chocolate candy in that room was on top of the 7 ft tall cabinet!!  

Obviously, my little stinker climbed up, grabbed the box, snagged himself a chocolate and then managed to knock the container off the wall on the way down.  I scolded him big time, made him spit out the candy and then apologize to the principal, who happens to be my mother, for stealing.  He got into big trouble at home too, because even though it was just a candy, it was still stealing and that's NOT acceptable behavior no matter how small the item.

Now that the whole thing is months behind us, my family (the adults anyway) has a good chuckle at the incident.  At the time however, it took me a long time to get my panicked mommy heart to calm down, because Firecracker could have killed himself!

Have a great day!

It Must Be Frustrating


Have you ever thought about the fact that it must be super frustrating for police officers in marked cars to drive down the road?  They constantly get boxed in by people doing slightly under the speed limit for fear they will end up with a ticket.  If it was me that would drive me absolutely nutty!  Just a random thought that is running around in my crazy brain today.  I thought I'd share it with you!  Now whenever you're driving near a police officer you'll notice just what I'm talking about.

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Happy Independence Day!

Have you ever thought about the fact that if our forefathers never signed the Declaration of Independence and started the war that we would be speaking with an English accent right now?  Just a little thought for you on this wonderful day where we celebrate our freedoms.

I am so thankful for our country and the freedoms that we have.  I am also thankful for all those who do and have fought for our freedoms.

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Wowzers, Long Time No See...

Ok, so I knew I'd been lax about my posts and that I hadn't done one in a long time, but I didn't realize it had been 9 months!  Holy cow bells!  How in the world have you people lived without me?!  I'm so sorry! ;)

I could give you a lot of reasons/ excuses as to why I haven't done any posts, but I'm not.  Let's just leave it at "Life is crazy busy during the school year, and Ms. T sometimes is in a depression made worse by the craziness and so doesn't even want to think about having another thing to do".  Mmmmkay?

For reals, I'm sorry and I'll try to do better.  The good news is I have a TON of posts that I'll be writing here in the not so distant future about my crazy kids and their antics.  There are some whoppers in there too, let me just tell ya.

Ta ta for now,
Ms. T
