I am not ashamed in the slightest to admit that we jam out to the Biebs, T-Swift and all boy bands from the 90s on a regular basis. Yes, I’m such a fan I can use the nicknames as opposed to the full names. Honestly, I even think it would be really cool to meet them and while I wouldn’t be one of those screaming, crazed, girls I’m sure it would be an adrenaline rush. Even the kids like the Biebs and I figure there can be worse role model
I never freak out when my kids hurt themselves. I literally don’t even have any reaction at all. My famous line around here is “If there is no blood or if there isn’t a bone sticking out, I don’t want to hear about it.” This perhaps sound harsh but when you have boys there are ALWAYS some kind of ailment and if I gave each one attention I’d be a full time nurse.
If I have to hear my oldest sing or do the Whip and Nae Nae one more time my head literally my explode. I even got a ” whip whip” move punched into my belly the other day as I rounded the corner. Let’s move on to the next strange dancing trendy song ASAP. Sincerely, Mom’s EVERYWHERE!!!
Mason threw up in the checkout line at our grocery store the other night. We had piled in the van after school so I had no idea he wasn’t feeling well and then BAM throw up coming out everywhere. I was trying to swipe my card, use paper towels and keep the Curious George toddler I have from playing in it or deciding to leap out of the cart onto the floor. To be honest, I wasn’t even kind of embarrassed at the 40 people staring at me. For me, this is just another day in the life and those people should be sad they’ve never experienced throw up in public. I mean you haven’t really lived until you’ve done so. At least that’s what I tell myself.
Gavin is like Hell on Wheels….in mostly good ways. His favorite show is Curious George and boy do I know why. He is the human version of the animated character. The kid is in to EVERYTHING. You literally can’t leave him for more than 2 seconds unless you want something non-food eaten, something broken, something thrown away, or hidden to where you’ll never be able to find it again. Currently there is a yo-yo, sippy cup, shoes, and other toys that have never been found again. Pretty sure they ended up in the trash but I’m also confident I will find a moldy milk filled sippy cup some day that will not make me thrilled. Just the past two week he has learned to climb on everything so he has downed some liquid vicks, applied lipstick to his hair, smeared crayon all over the kitchen table and who knows what else I’ve missed. He’s gonna kill me! haha
I have this bad habit of buying all healthy foods and being so proud of myself for not getting any junk food, only to make special trips throughout the week for junk food. When I’m not pregnant this isn’t as bad but every time I’m pregnant this is a serious issue. I will literally go out to the store, in the cold, in the dark, just to buy ice cream or muddy buddies. Yet, I’m still proud of myself for only buying healthy food when I grocery shop. Apparently my mind blocks out the trips I’ve taken in the dark like some undercover spy. Yes, my inner fat kid is loud and annoying at times. Haha
I ordered an Elsa Doll for Gavin for Christmas a few weeks back because I have no problem with my boys playing with dolls. Sadly, it came in yesterday and was in face just the Elsa dress for a doll…not the doll itself. I realized in that moment that I truly was a ‘boy mom’ since I get so excited over the picture of something girly I forget to read the description. #girldeprivation #boymomproblems
I have no patience for homework. At the end of the day I am beyond spent and have already been asked a million questions and listened to a million stories that my brain is literally on shut down. The kids don’t have too much homework right now but when they do I turn into a growly bear. I need them to just get it, quick, otherwise you might as well just throw me in a corner and let me cry it out. I know this is awful and only going to get worse but man oh man no matter how hard I try it’s like the worst. God Bless Teachers!
I’m obsessed with my husband even after almost 10 years. Like for real obsessed. I still think he’s the hottest guy in the room and if he is home I want to be with him or by him or breathing in his cologne. He’s my honey bo-licious….what can I say!
I am having a serious love affair….with my new appliances. We got all new appliances and all are now installed, minus the stove. Guys, I could literally like kiss and hug these things every morning. I had no idea what I was missing out on. I feel like I have discovered the most rarest of diamonds on all the earth. If you’re in the market for some new awesomeness, I highly recommend Bosch everything or LG. Now I just need to find some good stainless steel cleaner to wipe away all the smooch marks!! 😉
