Really? It's been THAT long since I last posted to my blog. Yikes.

Well, sooooo many things have happened since then and I have decided that I MUST for the sake of remembering this wonderful life I share with my small children and husband, start blogging more... A LOT more. So that's that.

I've decided that just a few sentences about something that happened that day, or something funny that one of the kids said is suitable and REQUIRED. So I'm not here this time to update my blog on the last 4 or so months. Instead... I'll share this funny story...

Lydia came home from school yesterday crying. She was in tears as she burst through the door. The conversation went something like this...

L: Sobbing -Mommy, I got on orange today.
Me: Orange? What? What happened honey? Settle down and tell me.
L: I'm scared. I'm scared you won't give me dinner!
Me: WHAT??? Won't give you dinner (and just for the record my dear, I have only THREATENED to send you to bed without dinner. I have never actually done it!)?? Just tell me.
L: I lied.
Me: YOU DID WHAT??? - she knows how much I will NOT tolerate lying!

So I pulled the "oops note" out of her backpack and I had to turn around so she wouldn't see me laughing at what was written. Apparently, Lydia told and convinced a teacher's assistant in the cafeteria that she was allergic to peanut butter so that she could sit at the peanut free table with her friend Paris.

OH GOOD LORD...what in the world are the "real" teenage years going to hold for us?!


  1. You've been missed! How's the new house? And did y'all start fostering again or what? We need a full-on update woman. LOL

  2. Girl, I've been wondering what was going on with you!! Love the family picture on top of the sidebar. That is hysterical - pretty smart girl :) And you're a better mama than me - I have done more than just threaten with the food. Glad you're getting back into the blogging world!

  3. Thanks girls.

    Mothering4Money...You too need to post! I need a good laugh or two! I will update soon. House is good but we have had issues with it. We aren't fostering. I wish we were. And we will soon! I will update soon - PROMISE!

    Michelle- I love keeping up with your family. I can't believe how big Cole is! I wish you would turn your comments back on!!! :)
