Today's Snack

So today's snack is different than yesterday's. 
What did I see as I walked into the kitchen? 
A big marshmellow being shoved into the sugar jar. 
"It isn't brown sugar mom!"

100% truth here.  I walk into the kitchen and there is one of my children, with their hand not in the cookie jar, but in the brown sugar container!  Snack of choice today brought to you by C&H, brown sugar.

Today I bought my husband some new socks.  The care label states,
"Do Not Iron."

Bummer!  I can't iron these babies!  Talk about bursting my bubble!
I'm going to cry now.  Probably from laughing so hard.

Good Night Music

While attempting to get my kids to bed, I start serenading
from The Music Man,
"Goodnight my sweet ones goodnight my loves
(cause I'm singing it to my kids so there's a little improv)
Goodnight my sweet ones goodnight
I wish I may and I wish I might ...

To which my daughter starts improv-ing as well
with a very appropriate made up tune:
"Mom!  I need a drink of water!
Mom!  I want a piece of bread!
Mom!  Read me a story!
Mom!  I don't want to go to bed!"

Chickens & Bugs

Cute 4 year old little girl asks me, "Why are the chickens outside?"

I tell her, "Because that's where the bugs are.  They like to eat them."

With total shock she replies, "They like to eat the bugs?"

Half laughing, I tell her, "Yes.  They think bugs are yummy. 
I don't think bugs sound yummy."

Before I can ask what she thinks she tells me,
"I don't thing bugs are yummy.  I think donuts are yummy."

Puts a smile on my face

After quite possibly THE BESTEST weekend of my entire life!!!  Yes my husband totally rocks!!!  I'm kind of tired today.  And it's Monday morning and this is another jammed packed full week, and being tired isn't quite the best way to start.  So after I stayed in bed 20 minutes longer than normal, I find myself standing in the kitchen asking my kids if they mind eating lunch at school today.  My youngest looks at me like I've just flung spitballs at her and my oldest hangs his head and mutters, "Yeah."  (But not really.)

That was the pick-er-upper I needed.  My kids like their home-made lunches!  :)  That sure puts a smile on my face.
