The toilet habits of earwigs

Ahhhh, my children have inherited their father’s sense of humor… We were just cleaning Tyren’s room, when we found a live earwig…I told him to go get some toilet paper (to catch him)….and Tyr said: “Why? Does he need to wipe his butt?”   Oh my, I live in a house full of comedians! Related posts: Butt goggles Hot dog […]

Survival of the fittest

Survival of the fittest

Having a discussion about survival of the fittest with Adam and Tyren..I mentioned maybe some deer had longer necks and were able to survive because they could reach more food… Then the conversation evolved into silly speculations, ending in Adam saying: “What if the original inventor of the forklift was really shortnecked deers, and humans stole the invention.” Um, whaaaat?

2 min isn’t so long

2 min isn’t so long

I just walked into the bedroom to my husband demonstrating to my 10yr old how 2 min isn’t very long in a very unique way… Timer set on his iPhone, wacking son with pillows, tons of giggles from my son. My husband’s parenting is never a dull moment, I tell ya. Related posts: My hot husband Silly girls NOT I […]

No Chocolate bunny for Dad

Apparently I’m not a good parent

Maeven was being goofy, pretending to be stuck under Tyr’s mattress on the floor…saying “HEEEEELP….Mom, help!” I was texting a friend and ignoring her temporarily…knowing she wasn’t actually stuck…so Maeven says: “Heeeeelp….Mom, heeeeeeeelp. You’renotaverygoodparent” (as a sort of aside)…then…”Heeeeeeeeelp”.  Lol. Dork. I’m surrounded by dorks. Related posts: my funny little girl emotional wreck Prepare to see defeat! can i just […]

Can’t hear you!

I said “Oh REALLY?” and he said “Just go with it.” True story. LOL Related posts: BOOK REVIEW: The Family Bed husband on strike orders arrived Bedtime frisbee throwing

Funny things on a road trip

Maeven, looking at the hills, covered in dead CA native grasses, sprinkled with little bushy trees: “Everything looks like broccoli!” ———————– This hay truck drove past and Adam said “Hey!!” Took me a sec and I got it and burst into giggles. I’m easily amused. ——————- While talking about the alphabet game, where you look for the letters of the […]

Adam-ism of the day

After I told Adam I wasn’t going to go check to see if the drier was empty for him, that he could do it himself, because I was in the middle of something (He’s ALWAYS trying to get me to do things for him, and feigns hurt or anger when I won’t.)…. “Sometimes when people are being mean to other […]
