Don't be Jealous

I know today is going to be a good day and here is why......

1st my husband made me these for breakfast this morning ........
Cake batter pancakes, oh yeah, like I said don't be jealous (ok you  can be a little jealous). This picture is from Betty Crocker's website where we got the recipe.

2nd my kids are going to go spend the night at their Nanna and Pepaw's . Don't get me wrong I love my kids and really do enjoy spending time with them. But spending a little time without them definitely can't hurt. So once nap time is over we're packing them up and sending them off . My husband and I are going to have  alone time which usually goes something like this......

1st 1/2 hour kids are gone- dancing and singing with joy

Next 2 hours-"what do you wanna do" ? "I don't know what do you wanna do" ? "You wanna get something to eat" ? "yeah we should go out since we don't have the kids" "Where do you wanna go" ? "I don't know where do you wanna go" etc........

Next hour-"you go ahead and get in the shower first" "No really you go ahead"

3 hours later- "You wanna just get carry out "? "Yeah but what" ?

2 hours later- We finally actually order the carry out, sit on the couch and eat, and discuss how much we miss the kids .

Next morning- "Man I hope they keep the kids till at least evening". "Yeah me to, what do you wanna do"?

And last but not least thing I don't want you to be jealous of.........
My sink is broke so I don't have to can't do the dishes .

Pinterest Is The New Crack

So I don't know if you guys have discovered Pinterest yet, but I did.....and well I'm pretty sure crack couldn't even be this addictive. I went on a 3 day pinning binge, this weekend and when I say binge, I mean there is a good chance that Childrens Services might car pool with the divorce lawyer kinda neglect around here. Luckily my husband was here to diaper and feed the children while I frantically pinned everything I could click my mouse on. I've never been one to do a whole lot in moderation (except maybe my dishes). But some good came out of my binge , I got some awesome ideas for stuff to do with the boys, some learning activities, some play, some learn play combo's, and some good Mommy crafts (very simple do to my uncraftiness ) and some pretty nifty  organization tips. Now since I almost lost my husband and my Mother of the year award over, finding these idea's , I figure the only way to rectify myself is to actually use some of them. This may be a big struggle in self discipline for me cause I am way more of a idea woman, than an actual try new things woman, so you guys are going to help hold me accountable. I'm going to give you an update on my "Pinterest inspired projects" each Monday. I also need to post more often so it's kinda like a two bird one stone, success breeding succsess thing. So off I go to clean my house,or maybe spend time with my hubby while the kids are in bed...........ok ok to pin some more stuff.

PS. if you wanna see the results of my binge pinning, you can press the button right on the side of this page, don't forget to follow my boards when you get there, so we can steal share idea's. Also don't forget to stop and shower at least once a day (common Pin newbie mistake).

Shaving Cream Fun

Tink was not feeling well today, not sick enough to just lay around , but sick enough to be extra cranky and needy. So we had to find calm but fun stuff to do to keep him happy. Playing with shaving cream is a favorite around here, and we haven't done it in awhile so it seemed like a good choice. Usually when I do shaving cream with Bubba we practice writing letters and sight words by drawing them in the shaving cream, but today I decided to make it a little more toddler friendly for Tink.So here is what we did.......

First we got out baking sheets and covered them in shaving cream , then we burried his little "people" in the shaving cream. As fished each one from the shaving cream he threw them in a big mixing bowl full of water, to "give them a bath". He loved this, we also hid pennies in there . This kept him cranky free for about an hour and was easy to clean up, in fact all the shaving cream and water probably cleaned my table and hard wood floors some to (multi-purpose play). Next time we play shaving cream, I'm going to use Hot Wheels and set up a little car wash.

Parenting Style

  With a world full of, talk shows, parenting magazines, and yes Mommy bloggers, we are bombarded by parenting advice everyday. We are fit into parent labels i.e. helicopter moms, green moms, under-protective, overprotective, hands on , stay at home, working Mommy.....etc. We have come to a point that we are no longer just parents, our goal is no longer simply to raise our children, it is to raise our children in whatever style is in fashion right now.

Boys......My Boys

Their feet stink, they never stop talking. They act like monkey's with their hands under their armpits. They eat more than should be humanly possible. I think they might have bacteria growing under

Attention Germs

We have all been taken down by germs in my house this week, nasty no good useless germs !
