Life is Great...even if I have to do laundry!

What a crazy week it's been! Well, it's probably just this crazy family that makes the week seem crazy! Yeah, we'll go with the second one. I have done more laundry in the past three years than I have ever wanted to do. Ever. In my whole life. I hate strongly dislike potty training. It is one of (the very few) things I hate strongly dislike about being a parent. This is part of the reason I have laundry that covers my entire couch and looks larger than Mt. Everest! The boy does pee-pee in the potty. Most of the time. He can use the potty, he just chooses to play and torture his sisters instead. We are still working on the ahem other part. By the time he actually ahem accomplishes the other task, I may just be crazy from folding laundry that I'm just going to have to wash and fold again in 2.3 hours. Another reason I have laundry that rolls out of my laundry room like a volcano that has erupted is, Sweetie Pie. She is a (almost) 4 year old little girl. Who loves clothes. Who hates to be dirty. Even if she's really not dirty. Do you see the pattern? She likes to change and in the process, there are clothes everywhere. By the time I get to their rooms to clean them, I don't remember what she has worn and what she hasn't. *Sigh* So I do the old sniff and check to see if they smell dirty. Then I usually pick up a shirt that her brother has pee-peed on. Thanks. Just what I needed, the lovely smell of urine. Not!! So, there is the majority of my multiple laundry issues. Then I think about my girls being teenagers and I cry. Not just because they'll be teenagers, but because of all. the. clothes.

  A note to my sweet, beautiful, smart, girls: You will learn how to do your own laundry at the age of 5 and 4 when I'm tired of doing all the darn. laundry. You're welcome, Love Mommy :)

My son, has been a well of information and laughs this week. He's only (almost) 3 and boy oh boy! Yesterday, while I was about to scream and run away from home doing my favorite thing, laundry, he made me laugh and reminded me why I stay at home and get to do the laundry.

The boy: Mommy, by plya(blend all the letter together and this is kinda what it sounded like) is hurt.
Me: Um, Your plya? What is your plya?
The boy: Dis wight here...as he points to his nipple and dis is my tattoo...as he points to his other nipple.(Thank God, he only has two!)
Me: oh, well...that's good to know.

Sweet Pea: (yelling as loud as she can, even though I'm in the next room...with the door open) MOMMY, BROTHER HAS HIS DRINK AND IS MAKING A MESS ON THE TABLE.
Me: OK, thanks...now that I can't hear.
Me: Oh son, grumbles are you trying to send me to the looney bin today?
The boy: YES!
Me: Oh good to know, at least we are on the same page. I now know what my day holds. At least in the looney bin I will get to sleep.

Me: Stop jumping on your bed. You're going to get hurt.
The boy: exactly 5.6 seconds later...I hear crying form his room. Mommy! I broke my head!
Me: Trying not to laugh hysterically because at this point I would rather laugh than cry Are....laughs..you...laughs..ok?
The boy: Yes, I'm fine.
Me: Well, good! I'm glad your head's not broken!
The boy: Yeah...

All of this happened in one day. Not even a full day. But between 8:30 and 4:30 yesterday. I'm glad I don't work outside the home and take them to daycare because, they would probably kick us out I get to enjoy this and not miss out on all the crazy chaotic happening we call The Fowler Family.

This week in home school, My Sweet Pea has learned to read a small book. Yay! It's so exciting! She still struggles through some words, but after sounding them out she gets it! Some times she gets so excited she just sees the first word and guesses (ex: she sees the h in has and assumes it's had) She is doing really well though! I am so proud of her. :)  It really is rewarded to see your kids accomplish such a goal.(Regardless of home school or public school! )

So here's to a great weekend because my partner in monkey wrangling is home and I have reinforcements  because my awesome husband is home and we have 3 awesome kids! Life is Great!*

*Even if Mt. Laundry is going to explode in 2 days and I have to do it all again! :)

No wonder I have a headache....

I have a headache. I was trying to figure out why, then I ran over the past month in my head. I know why my head aches. Now it hurts worse. Here's what I found in my head. I hope you don't get a head ache too. 8~)
(P.S. this is only half of it....You're welcome!)

  1. I haven't blogged in almost a month. I'm sad. I didn't realize that a month could fly by so fast. What? How did that happen?
  2. Whining. I think I may end up plucking my eyes out with a spoon if I have to hear Sweetie Pie whine one. more. day. Over what, you may ask? Take your pick. She'll whine about it. She's a professional. 
  3. Sweetie Pie is a great example of Birth Control for teenager's. One hour with her whining over a cloud in the sky and they will never want to have children. Ever. 
  4. I might do better to just put my iPod ear buds in and turn up the music, than pluck my eyes out with a spoon. At least I could still see her pretty little face. 
  5. If I have to tell the boy to quit putting things in his underwear I may just cry.  "Boy, get that DVD out of your underwear!" "I'm sorry but Special Agent Oso doesn't like to ride in your underwear!" mumbles to self..."especially if you don't stop pooping in YOUR PANTS!"  " While, using your underwear as a gun holster is cleaver...really...could you please find some pants?...and not your sister's tutu...you're a boy." "Why are you wearing you're sister's tutu and where is your underwear?!" "Shaking your hiney to make me laugh doesn't get you out of wearing underwear and pants!" *Turns head to keep from laughing while I try to get on to him and find his underwear at the same time!*
  6. France just passed a law to regulate the use of Ketchup in school cafeteria's. So they don't mess up their fancy French palate or something crazy like that. 
  7. France would have a heart attack if they saw that Sweet Pea likes to eat ketchup, mustard, and pickles ON her turkey sandwich. Let's not forget the chicken nuggets(where exactly do they come from?) and mac and cheese...out of the box!  How's that for a fancy palate!? Ha!
  8. My loving, sweet, caring, handsome husband was sick yesterday. Don't worry ladies, he's better today! WHEW! (I love you my sweet, caring, handsome, loving hubby! *hugs*)
  9. I spent most of my day yesterday in 2 different doctor's offices. At least I got to go to Target and look around while the medicine was being filled.
  10. I should have gotten a coffee from Starbucks.
  11. I have to buy some fall clothes. This made me happy. Then I tried on a few tops at Target. Then I cried. Just Kidding. Well kinda...
  12. Sweet Pea lost her second tooth. She pulled it all by herself! I'm proud. I'm sad. She's so little. She's so big!
  13. I'm conflicted!
  14. I didn't drink my coffee this morning.
  15. I'm a little cold.
  16. My ears hurt. I hope I'm not catching the family cold going around this house. Really. I've had it already! For almost a month. Move on. Thank You.
  17.  I just remembered, I ran out of creamer for my coffee. Sigh
Well, I may have a head ache do to life. Good News: At least my heart only aches from being so full. This makes me smile in spite of a little girl whining, a boy running around half naked, and a big girl with her own special palate. Memories are worth the head ache! Now....How can I get a Cinnamon Dolce Latte without going to Starbucks or the grocery store?.....Anyone?   :)
