Did you know?

I've been a tad distant these past couple weeks and I apologize.  I know that my plethora of readers have been horribly distraught in my absence, but never fear dear friends, for I am back.  And with me I have brought a bit of knowledge, factoids if you will, that I have learned over the last little while and I feel compelled to share.  For example...

Did you know that salsa can go rancid?  And by rancid I mean you open the jar and it makes a hissing sound, much like when you open a soda?  And it smells like beer?  
Did you know that when you mix said salsa in with your chili it makes the chili taste much like beer smells?  (Having never consumed beer myself, I am forced to only assume here.)
Did you know that all the Angry Birds stickers in the world cannot make a little boy want to poop in the potty?
Did you know that it is possible for a 5 year old brain to change what it wants to be for Halloween approx. 475 times in less than a week?
Did you know that it's possible that I might have the cutest kids in the entire world living in my house?
Did you know that one of them suffers from what I like to call the night terrors, where he cries out in the night and by the time we get to him he is already back to sleep?  OR he will just climb in bed with us?  
Did you know that if said child is on his way to our bed in sleepwalking fashion and not fully aware of his surroundings, that any move made by someone of which is not his mother can cause the child to scream and cry so loud it makes the other two wake up and cry as well?
Did you know that 5 o'clock in the morning is not my favorite time to hear all 3 kids screaming?
Did you know a king sized bed can and will hold 5 bodies at a time? 
Did you know that when a baby starts having a lot of blowouts that it may be time to go up a diaper size?
Did you know that when you go up a diaper size and the baby continues to poop all over herself there's not a whole lot you can do except learn to listen well and move quickly?
Did you know that this very baby has been changing outfits 2-3 times a day?
Did you know that laundry has a whole new meaning when everything you're washing has some form of baby excretion on it?
Did you know that even though she's a puking pooping machine, she is the most adorable thing I've ever seen?

Did you know that having a daughter is basically like having a life-sized doll that you get to dress and accessorize and just have fun with?
Did you know that even boots are cuter when they're tiny?
Did you know that some people do not like double stuf Oreos?!
Did you know that sometimes bad things happen to good people?
Did you know that it's kinda frustrating being powerless in a situation and relying only on faith and the knowledge that someday we'll know?
Did you know that I have a pretty big list of questions for the Big Guy when I get up there?
Did you know that my husband is a pretty super guy?
Did you know he had a birthday?
Did you know it is possible to make frosting the exact color of nasty?

Did you know I can make a pretty mean Angry Birds Pig cake?

Did you know that my hubby can take approx. 475 pictures in the course of 30 minutes?

No really, do you know how amazing my baby girl is?
Did you know that Izacc has become quite the lady's man?
Did you know he got his first love note?

Did you know he told me he's in love with someone else?
Did you know her name is Audrey?

Did you know that this is all after he and Dawn broke up?
Did you know he was close to tears when I picked him up from school and told me that he didn't have anyone to marry?
Did you know that the very next day he found a new friend?

Did you know he absolutely cracks me up each and every day?
Did you know I have a pretty fantastic life?
Did you know I've got some amazing friends?
Did you know I am really the luckiest girl in the world?

So there you go.  A few things I've learned that may or may not come in handy in your everyday life.
You're welcome.

Have a wonderful day.

All My Childern

I'm not quite sure how I ended up with three kids.

It's like I had one and then blinked and now I have 3!

And I don't think I could be more in love with them...and their little faces...and runny noses.

Friday Confessional: Crap and Stuff


HI!  It's me again!  I missed last week so it'd been building up inside me and I gotta get it all out!!  Ha ha I kid, but really, I'm glad it's Friday!  Let's get a move on here.

I confess...

  • I'd seriously like to go to bed and sleep for a week.
  • I don't know what's wrong with me lately.
  • I am SO tired.
  • Lame sauce.
  • I am a tad behind on my housework.
  • I just have no motivation and don't wanna do it!
  • And also, Netflix is ruining my life basically.
  • Instant gratification.
  • I only watch while I'm feeding the baby...
  • But as you may know, she eats a lot.
  • Hence, I've seen a lot of shows lately.
  • And changing a lot of diapers.
  • Holy crap.
  • Literally.
  • Amelia has become pro at ruining outfits.
  • Yesterday she wore 3.
  • I think it's time to go up a diaper size.
  • The blowouts are killing me.
  • And speaking of killing me, have you seen her smile lately?
  • And those thighs?!
  • She kills me she's so cute.
  • And I bought some tights for her.
  • And she looks adorable in them.
  • Tights, people.  TINY BABY TIGHTS!!
  • I love having a girl.
  • LOVE.
  • We had a girls night last night.
  • Me and Mia and my bestie went shopping last night for a couple hours.
  • It was a blast.
  • I didn't even buy anything.
  • We just hung out and laughed and talked.
  • And looked at clothes.
  • Ahhh I needed that for sure.
  • Girl time is the best.
  • And having a good friend is the best too!!
  • I love her.
  • And her.
  • Ha ha
  • I also made a giant batch of cookies this week.
  • I am on the PTO at my son's school.
  • I am doing little thank yous for the teachers and staff.
  • I made 145 chocolate chip cookies.
  • And packaged them.
  • And I really want to take a nap.
  • Ah well.
  • I'll sleep when I'm dead, right?
  • Well, I gotta go change one of those awesome diapers.
  • Seriously, how much can one child poop in 24 hrs?!

We Wanna Know Some More


Happy Wednesday everybody!  Comin' at ya are some more answers to your most burning questions...or something like that.  Anyway, let's get going!

#1  If you had an extra hour to do ANYTHING for yourself each day what would you do?
Sleep oh holy crap would I sleep!!  These days I'll take all I can get and having an hour EVERY DAY?!!  Oh mama, nap time city!

#2  Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I am SUCH a night owl it's not even funny.  I think I come by it naturally though.  My Dad used to complain about how when we all got together with my Mom's family there was no sleeping to be had.  I hate HATE draggin' my butt outta bed in the morning but I could (and have) seriously go all night, baby.  (That's what she said)

#3  How much sleep do you get on an average night?
Well, since Miss Mia has joined us, I get about 4 to 6, depending on the day.  She is doing so SO well sleeping, but as I mentioned before, I tend to stay up later than I should. And then she wakes up.  So it's basically all on me. I COULD be awesome and go to bed at 8pm when she does, but...

#4  When do you find the time to blog/surf the ol' interweb?
When I'm nursing said baby of course!  I usually start the morning by feeding the baby and checking the ol' blogs and email.  Then at night, before in bed, I feed the baby and check it all again.  I know, I know.  I don't know WHAT I'm going to do when I don't have a baby to blame on why I've been on the computer in my jammies all morning ha ha!

#5  What is the ONE thing you're never too busy for?
I am almost ALWAYS NEVER too busy to eat!  Ha ha oh man I have a problem.  There are days when I forget or have to skip a meal here and there, but thanks to aforementioned suckling baby, I feel the need to eat and eat on time and eat a little more...  If I had my druthers, well, Mama could stand to skip a few meals if you know what I'm sayin'...just sayin'...dang baby...

That oughtta do it for another week.  Thanks to Mamarazzi and Alicia aka Queso for hosting every week!  Come play!!  You know you wanna!

That's Right, Baby!

Well, as you may or may not have known, I am indeed on of these.
And this announcement brought me to happy tears today.
If you've ever read my Why I Am page up at the top of my blog, you'll understand why.
But I could not be happier.
I'm a little bit in shock, I'm not gonna lie.
It is really a long time a comin'.
I kinda feel like jumping on top of my roof and screaming for joy!
But I feel it would be a tad inappropriate.
And rude.
And loud.
And obnoxious.
So I won't.
But still...


I am really excited.
