For All The Moms And Those Who Aren't And Want To Be

You Know You're a Mom When...
1. Your feet stick to the kitchen floor.....and you don't care.
2. When the kids are fighting, you threaten to lock them in a room together and not let them out until someone's bleeding.
3. You can't find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend to call you, and you run around the house madly, following the sound until you locate the phone downstairs in the laundry basket.
4. You spend an entire week wearing sweats.
5. Your idea of a good day is making it through without a child leaking bodily fluids on you.
6. Popsicles become a food staple.
7. Your favorite television show is a cartoon.
8. Pizza or ramen noodles is eaten at least in one meal a day.
9. You're willing to kiss your child's boo-boo, regardless of where it is.
10. Your baby's pacifier falls on the floor and you give it back to her, after you suck the dirt off of it because you're too busy to wash it off.
11. Your kids make jokes about burping, pooping, etc. and you think it's funny.
12. You're so desperate for adult conversation that you spill your guts to the telemarketer that calls and HE hangs up on YOU!
13. Spit is your number one cleaning agent.
14. You're up each night until 10 PM vacuuming, dusting, wiping, washing, drying, loading, unloading, shopping, cooking, driving, flushing, ironing, sweeping, picking up, changing sheets, changing diapers, bathing, helping with homework, paying bills, budgeting, clipping coupons, folding clothes, putting to bed, dragging out of bed, brushing, chasing, buckling, feeding (them, not you), PLUS swinging, playing baseball, bike riding, pushing trucks, cuddling dolls, roller balding, basketball, football, catch, bubbles, sprinklers, slides, nature walks, coloring, crafts, jumping rope, PLUS raking, trimming, planting, edging, mowing, gardening, painting, and walking the dog. You get up at 5:30 AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink or go to the bathroom, and still managed to gain 10 pounds.
15. In your bathroom there is toothpaste on the light fixtures, water all over the floor, a dog drinking out of the toilet and body hair forming a union to protest unsafe working conditions.
16. You buy cereal with marshmallows in it.
17. The closest you get to gourmet cooking is making rice crispies bars.

I laughed when I read this because all though I am almost all of these things some remind me more of others. Happy Mothers Day to all!!!

Funniest Picture Ever

Came across this picture in our Picture album and had to share. This is for my mother, she loves this photo and anyone can see why. Riley is a great kid and this is the result of our first attempt at sports pictures. Love it.

Boys Will Be Boys


Funny story last week the boys went to play and got stuck in the mud. Called Mom to come get them out.

Stuck shin deep in Nasty clay mud, These were the tools that we used to pull out the four wheeler. Yes that is an orange extension cord. Which worked quiet well.

This was the trip back to the mud hole to find the missing cell phone. Yes the phone that rescued the four wheeler was MIA. Thank goodness we found it.

The after math of the fun in the sun with the big toys. I didn't let them in the house untill they were hosed off and they enjoyed that just about as much as they did loosing there shoes in the sticky mud. Boys will be Boys!!!!!!
