Funny Question

Posted under LOL, My Kids Make Me Smile, The Unexpected - Oct 7th, 09 - 1 Comment

Bradley¬† asked me a cute question about two weeks ago. He said, “What will happen if you see a UPS man?” I said, “What?” Then, he explained, “You know…they just like…’ding-dong’…and then you never see them. Do they really not want people to see them? Are they scary-looking, or ugly?…” I had to laugh. This […]

Cowboys

Okay, I grew up with a dad who watched the cowboys on television. He watched the Dallas Cowboys, and he also watched westerns with cowboys like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and…particularly John Wayne. However, my dad was the sweetest man in the world. Of course, he was a tough guy, but not a rough guy…very […]

The following is a conversation that my 6-year-old child (talented son) had with me (amazed mom) this morning: Talented Son: “Mom, do you know what I am really good at?” Amazed Mom: (turned to face son) “What?” Talented Son: “Well, I am really good at picking things up with my feet,” (He gave an honest […]

Boys Crying “Wolf”!

The other day, my six-year-old son purposely tried to scare me. He let a red Skittle melt on his finger, and came running to me like he hurt himself. I fell for it. He quickly told me he was kidding. However, the boys have started “playing wolf”, just to see my face! Now, I am […]

My Mind is Running With Thoughts on Running!

As I approach my 20th high school reunion (and 38th B-day), I have felt the need to run (fight or flight, huh?) . So for twenty dollars a month (our first time to join a gym—ever), BC and I rundrive over to the gym and get on the treadmill. We only go there together, and […]

I Am a Fan of Chic-fil-A!

What is black and white and red all over? Our embarrassed family walking into Chick-fil-A dressed like cows! Yesterday, we made total cows of ourselves (in more ways than one)! It was National Cow Appreciation Day at Chic-fil-A, and so we dressed the part and had a moo-valous time! We were supposed to dress “head […]

Boys Are Different…

Boys are different… I remember talking with a friend who had boys, when I had my first son, and telling her, “So far so good. I don’t seem to see too many differences between them.” Then at about nine or ten months, I called her and said, “I am starting to see their differences. He […]

Blown Away at Relay 2009

Highlights from this year’s Relay For Life… I was blown away by the money we raised…$70,000. Is that awesome or what? Even in a tough economic year, we surpassed our goal of $50,000. Also, this year we became a “Five-Star Relay”! Our chair and co-chair did an excellent job. Everyone on the committee did everything […]

Fruity People and Fruity Fun!

Posted under LOL, My Kids Make Me Smile, The Unexpected - Apr 27th, 09 - 2 Comments

Today, I went to the store with my six-year-old. It was pouring down rain when we got out of our suburban, so naturally we got wet soaked! I was standing in the fruit section getting apples, when a nearby fruit lady asked me, “Is it raining outside?” Everything inside of me wanted to scream: “Uh…DUH!”, […]

They’re Called Nose Pads, Not Nose Pieces!

If you wear glasses, one thing that you may commonly have had to fix or replace is your nose pieces. I think the proper name for them is nose pads. After playing volleyball the other day, Paige and I both broke our nose pads. I was telling my six-year-old that Paige and I were going […]
