7 Questions #3

Time for the FUN!! Time for the Gentri Lee 7 questions blog link up. The best thing about this link up is the questions are different and entertaining every week. You never know what others are going to say. You get to see all kinds of different pictures and people. If you would like to join visit the link below.

I do not own very many funny pictures of my self because I am usually the one behind the camera or forgetting the camera when it is needed. So my pics will mostly always be of my family or hilarious ones I find online.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This picture is of my twins and my little sister acting crazy at the farmer’s market. This is what you get when you ask 3 preteens to pose for a picture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And this one I had to include because I love it!!! I about to die laughing when I found this pic.

1. Do you ever have reoccurring dreams?

I don’t have recurring dreams but I have dreams that have recurring factors. Like the weird dreams I had this week. I the first dream the government was taking over everyone’s lives and was using this big machine to destroy everyone’s cars!!!! Then in the next dream the very next night the government was making women carry babies and then taking them away by c-section at full term. In the dream they made me carry a baby (even though my tubes are tied) and when it was full term they put me to sleep and took the baby. I was in freak out mode in my dream. This recurring government take over thing has got me baffled because I honestly do not believe in an eventual government take over and I have not had any conversations that would have led up to dreaming like that. And it has been a solid week since I watched Hunger Games. So I am not sure where all of this craziness came from.

2. It’s the first day of Fall (or Spring for you southern hemispherers) in a few days, what are you looking forward to most?
Snuggling with nice big sweatshirts, hot chocolate, hay rides, and strange enough I kind of look forward to it getting dark earlier so the kids have to come in right after dinner we have the best family times when it is dark outside and dinner is done we seem to do more as a family inside.

3. Because a lack of coordination, would you rather not be able to tie your shoes or cut your own food?
Absolutely tie my own shoes because there is ways to make sure that isn’t an inconvenience but not being able to cut your own food would always be an inconvenience in more ways than one.

4. Would you rather live in a house made entirely of glass or a house with no windows?
Oh this one is really hard because the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is open my blinds and curtains to see the world. I love letting the light in and facing a new day. But if I lived in a house made of glass I would have to repair it all of the time I am a clumsy person 😦 I don’t know I think I will have to go with a house made entirely of glass because I would get way to stuffy and claustrophobic in a house with no windows.

5. Would you rather walk on you toes or heels forever?
Probably my toes I think walking on my heels that long would cause back pain (speaking from experience in the back pain area)

6. What’s your favorite sense? (you have 5 btw)

Hearing because I don’t think I could live without hearing my sweet children tell me they love me or their laughter or the sounds they make when they are sound asleep.
7. What’s your favorite movie quote of all time?
“Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming” I love Dori!!

7 Questions #2

It is that time of week again. TIme for the 7 questions blog hop. This is my second time participating and I have to say I have been looking forward to it!!
My Funny Picture I love this picture it makes me laugh every single time I see it no matter how many times I have seen it before.

1. Do you have any weird food combinations that you love?
Actually I have a few. As No Drama Mamma stated I also eat pepper on my Cottage Cheese but that’s not all I like to eat my cottage cheese with apple sauce. My Grandma taught me to do this and I love it. Also I think that cheese and pickles taste spectacular together. Even though my tweens tell me it is ohh so gross. LOL

2. Have you ever written a blog post, published it, then immediately deleted it?
I am pretty new to the blogging game so this hasn’t happened to me yet. I am sure it will though.

3. What is a hair style you wish you could pull off but never would be brave enough to try?
Hmmm I am not very hair trendy but I would have to agree with our host that I would like to be able to pull off the pixie hair cut. Something like this…

4. Would you rather always have to use the sun to tell time or directions by the stars?
My Dad was a truck driver and has been every where he is like a walking atlas I swear it is crazy. However, I absolutely did not get this gene. If it was not for the Garmin that my dad bought me for Christmas (probably cause he was tired of me calling him for directions) I would not be able to make it from point a to point b unless I knew where I was going. So I would have to go with the sun.

5. What is a fall trend that you are excited to try?
I have to be absolutely honest here I have no idea what the fall trends are I am completely fashion stupid 😦 I am a jeans and a tshirt kind of gal, I dress up for church and when I have a home show for my direct sales business. That usually is a black skirt and whatever top I think is cute that is on sale.

6. Who is your style icon?
Oh no I am really going to have to think now. I could tell you in 2 seconds who it is not but that is not the question. I am a fan of simple beauty for the most part. I think I will say Drew Barrymore she is pretty down to earth with her dressing style.

7. What is your favorite outdoor activity?
It would be a huge toss up between softball and fishing my two favorite things to do in the summer. But in the winter I like to go sledding with the kids. In the fall/spring I like to go pick apples or strawberries.

Ughhh Mom I know!!

Does anyone else have a preteen that knows everything???

I know I sure do and actually I have two. Double trouble from the moment they were born!! They are great kids. They do well in school and haven’t got into the wrong crowd yet (which I hope never happens). However, these two think they know everything about everything about everything that there ever was to know in this whole wide world. I can be telling them something simple like “it might rain please take your umbrella to school” and the reply to me is “UGHHH Mom I know.” Okay they must be meteorologists. I might be able to give them that one, maybe they watched the weather or got it on their phone. So maybe they did know.

So here is another scenario: Me to twin #1 “Your brother needs to go to the dr tomorrow he will not be on the bus” twin to me “Ughhhh Mom I know.” Okay they must be my personal secretaries and know my schedule. There is no way possible that she knew that before I said it!! Is she reading minds now? I mean it is in my date book that is in my purse it is not written on a big calendar for everyone to see. So how does she “know” like she claims?

I am finding this age is very fun in all of these crazy kinds of ways like the boys noticing my girls. They look like little puppies following my girls around. And I am thinking in my head where did these fools come from?? But every time I try to talk to my girls about how bad, nasty, and cootified a boy is they say the oh so famous “ughhhh Mom I know.”

So either I have very intelligent super meteorologist, secretary, personal assistant, dating experts or they are trying not to talk to me. Which is a very bad idea and they know it. You see I am not always a traditional type of parent, I like to find ways outside the box to get my kids thinking. Like if you tell me I am embarrassing you when I am not doing anything to embarrass you I will MAKE sure you are embarrassed. My favorite way to embarrass my girls is to follow them around Wal-Mart singing “their” kind of music at the top of  my lungs (which is actually hilarious because I don’t know the words and I make up my own). You should have heard my rendition of “Call Me Maybe.” I think I could have won an award for it personally.

So for my unorthodox way to get the girls to start listening to me instead of always saying “UGHHH Mom I know’ is this: When I tell them something and they reply with the famous words I will sit down with pen and paper. I will them call both to them to the table with me and I will say to them “you guys are so smart and know the future I am taking notes please go on and tell me all the things you know.” They will reply with “MOOOOOMMMMM” and I will rebutle with ” OH please all powerful all knowing ladies I can not go another day without your knowledge of all the world.” HAHAHAHAHA  I made myself laugh.

The funny thing is they know if they don’t get the drift the first time I will continue and make it worse everytime in some way. I do NOT have any shame in following them around while they are outside with their friends with my pen and paper.

Of course I know that I will never totally break them of saying “Ughhh Mom I know” because it is a teen thing but I can guarantee they will think twice about saying it unless they really do know.

What do you do to get your kids attention that may be conisdered a little unorthodox?

The Lesson and The Humpass

Yesterday was one of those days when it seemed I had a million and one things to do. I have to admit when I get busy like that I sometimes become unable to think about anything else but what I have to do. It’s like unithinking. Even though I make myself a to do list I will revisit  it in my mind over and over fearing that I forgot to write something down. I am not sure if it stress that causes me to sort get moody or irritable.  But yesterday turned out to be a lot different. Caleb and I were at Books A Million on one of my many stops I had to get to yesterday. And I was staring at the health food books looking for a book that seemed to allude me while Caleb was looking at a globe that was right behind me. All of a sudden Caleb got so excited and started saying “Mommy look it’s a Humpass.” I turned around and he had the most excited look on his face and was pointing at the compass on the globe. I thought I was going to pee my pants laughing. The  stress from the day just melted away. I was so happy, I actually sat down and gave Caleb a HUGE hug.  

So yesterday in all of the stress my four year old son taught me to just take it easy and enjoy your day no matter what you have to do. I know I will probably not always remember this but it sure did make a difference in my day.  I thought to myself “so what if I forget something” there is always tomorrow. Because what good is today if I can’t enjoy it.
