She Said

This morning I dropped Boyfriend at camp and took Girlfriend and Boo to the grocery store.

As I was parking the car, Girlfriend began, "Can I walk?"

This is a new thing around here... "walking" at the store... instead of being in a cart.

It began thanks to Husband, and I for one, never, ever allow it.

So I was all, "Nope... no walking in the store, not till you're 5... but you can drive the car cart."

Girlfriend gave a grunt and started to complain...


"Don't worry, Boyfriend is at camp, so you get to drive the car cart all by yourself! Does that sound good?"

From the back seat, a small voice replied...almost to herself; "That sounds fucking AWESOME."

And there you have it... driving the car cart all by yourself when you a two year old, only girl, middle child... is fucking awesome.


My Almost Threenager

My Girlfriend... is almost THREE.

I know. I am serious.

If you've been reading long enough to remember when she was born than man... you seriously deserve some sort of prize or something.

Anyway.... I am one of four kids, and I have two sisters so there was never any really special girl time for me ya know?

All my girl time was shared with my sisters... which is fine but... I missed out on some one on one time with my Mom.

And I have always said that I want that for my Doll.

With her 3rd birthday approaching fast, I was trying to think of something special that we could do just for her.

I got this hair brained idea to ask my friend Jen of JCole Photography if she would let me bring allll of my girly stuff (plus some extra that I borrowed from a friend) to do a fun photo shoot.

I dubbed it the Threenager Photo Shoot.

These are just the shots that made the cut... there were others... there was makeup involved.

It was very red and very all over her face....

So those shots didn't make the cut...

But these..... DID!

And I am obsessed with them and am going to use them on her invites... ANNND her thank you note... and I'm going to frame a few for her room.

One day... probably when she first gives me the finger... I'm going to pull out these pictures as a reminder of how good of a Mom I am.

I know for sure I would have LOVED to do this when I was little... this was seriously so fun, for everyone involved.

We were like pile on all the stuff give her more more more... it was a more is more day.

If you have a daughter... this is such a great alternative to boring, posed shots... seriously, break out the toys and let her go nuts!


Summer Social Media Detox

Umm... hello?

Is anyone still here?

I'm back... kind of... for tonight anyway.

I have been trying to have a social media-less summer vacation with the kids.

Surprisingly, I am doing pretty well with it.

I am as addicted to this nonsense as the rest of the world.

It is embarrassing, and shameful, and I absolutely hate that I click on Facebook for no reason and read status updates from people that I don't even like.

Basically this detox all started because Boo recently decided that when he nurses he wants to hold my hand.

I know... cutest thing ever.

So anyway... with one hand around him and the other one in his hand... there was nowhere to hold my phone and read the news and status updates and other bull shit.

And I thought... THIS IS FANTASTIC. Fuck social media... I want to watch my beautiful baby boy nurse instead.

And so I did. Do, I mean.

Anyway... all this watching led to me forgetting my phone all over the damn place... and the battery dying... and....

Before I knew it, I had begun a social media detox.

I am however, hopelessly devoted to Instagram because one day I swear I am going to make Insta-magnets and Insta-books, and Insta-t-shirts and book-marks and UNDERWEAR out of all of my quickly captured slash filtered moments.

Okay, maybe not underwear... but you get the idea.


We have been busy doing all the things in all the land... with no cell phone in my hand.

Everyone is humongous and long and tan and I have no clue where my babies have gone.

If you haven't checked in with us here in awhile, I am going to go ahead and be the worst self promoting blogger ever and say GOOD... we should all get the hell off the Internet and bring it back old school.


Let me remind you who I am...in case you forgot.

I hate my cell phone, it is not an I-phone and if I could remove the Internet from it I would.

My life is crazy.

I have laundry to do, and floors to mop, and my toenails are begging for a pedicure, and my roots are looooong, and my forehead is covvvvered in wrinkles (special thanks to my babies for those)...

BUT... my children are beautiful... (albeit a little insane).... my toilets are clean but my floors are dirty... I get very little sleep... ANNNND

I like things this way.

If you're still out there reading, thanks, you're sweet.

And don't worry!!

Kindergarten is coming and with it, lots of stories about how Husband had to drag me out of the bus on the first day.

I mean it didn't happen yet... but I'm gonna go ahead and say maybe it will.
