School Mornings

I just never know what is going to happen on a school morning, sometimes it is nothing but sweetness and others nothing but contention...This morning, I heard M call H the "a@@" word, so I summoned him to come downstairs so he could get soap in his mouth...when he entered the office, he was already rubbing the soap in his mouth and around his teeth. I couldn't help myself I just cracked up laughing.

Oh, and Mom, the other day when M came in and said H and her friend had called him that name...turns out he made it up because the girls said he didn't give a good foot massage.

M's Puzzle

M picked out this puzzle. I should have paid more was round...thank goodness for the engineer husband.

My Little Builder

A few pics of what Little M does with his Legos (and no help from anyone, not even his engineer father helps him with his creations.)

1st Day of School

School started last week so I grabbed my camera like a good mommy and started clicking...and the lens started fogging up...did I mention it was a miserable sauna and it was only 6:45 a.m.?

The kids were so excited about riding a bus this year, they were ready to go at 5:30 a.m. I had to set a timer so they would know when they could leave for the bus stop, I got so tired of them asking...usually, I had to set a timer so they would know they were running out of time to get ready for school and to get moving! (That will probably happen in a few weeks when the fun of the bus ride ends)

Out of the Mouths of Babes

It has been a busy week, school started yesterday and I thought I would have lots of time to catch up on email, go to the gym, you know..."Me time.:" Not so far, I realized yesterday at 2 p.m. while I was eating my lunch (late for me, I am an early lunch eater) that it was only one more hour until the kids would be home from school. How did that happen? Oh yeah, I made the mistake of walking into M's bedroom to put clothes away...I decided to tackle it. (And this is the cleanest of the 3 bedrooms of my Little Blessings) H is next...that may take a few days...and Roo? Well, I am just leaving the door shut.

I have pics and videos and all sorts of stuff to amuse you but that will have to wait until tomorrow....gotta get the tacos for dinner started and I still have to go through the backpacks, fill out forms for swim tryouts tomorrow, and get the kids into bed...

In the meantime, here is my Facebook status from the other day, I think it will give you an insight into the "know it allness of H and the inquisitiveness of M."

H: Come on Matthew, we're going to play at Emily's but you have to be quiet her mom just had plastic surgery.

M: What's plastic surgery?

H: It's when you get surgery and they put a piece of plastic in your body. (on Sunday)
