My Nickname Has a Butt

Somewhere, somehow my kids heard a short clip of the Bubble Butt song. (I've never listened to the whole thing.) Once the hysterical laughter subsided, they unanimously agreed this should be my new name. The more I protested the more they said it. I let it go for the day and (as suspected) they soon… Continue reading My Nickname Has a Butt

Mom Not-Fails

Last week I grilled hamburgers on the indoor electric grill. Why? Well, it was raining, we have no propane in the outside grill and I'm terrified to use it anyway, so you can just pick one. Anyway, it has a grease tray. The tray was full and I bumped it. Not so bad, except I… Continue reading Mom Not-Fails

Teachers, Listen Up!

Hey teachers, I need to have a word with you. I have few important things you really need to hear, so please listen up. Don't be offended if I don't get everything exactly right.

Now, while I'm so thankful for this fish that's already brought so much joy to the family, let me… Continue reading Fish in a Bag

Game of Foams

* Title credit goes to the hubby. (He was pretty proud of it.) Y'all, I can't wait to say this. I'm so excited. Are you ready? No, I can't do it. Ok, 1...2...3... wait, what were we talking about again? Ah yes, I was about to share some exciting information. There are exactly 8 days… Continue reading Game of Foams

Love Sprinkles

We'll be celebrating 10 years of marriage next year. That concept has yet to actually make sense in my brain. I remember hearing people speak of 10 year anniversaries and it seemed like such a futuristic event in my mind. Like flying cars and robots cleaning the house. I just never pictured myself in that… Continue reading Love Sprinkles
