Little Girl seems to have a crush on a boy in her kindergarten class named J. We get to hear all about J and his fascinating ability to make fart noises with his armpits. Apparently this gets you the attention of all the girls in the five-year-old set. This boy may really be a lady-killerContinue reading “Kindergarten Smooth”
After cooking and cleaning up after our grand Thanksgiving feast (turkey plus FIVE kinds of starch), I took a nap. When I woke up, my husband was calling poison control. I guess the twins hadn’t had enough to eat and decided to drink their older sisters’ perfume. I wouldn’t have been too worried (After all,Continue reading “What happened during my post-Thanksgiving nap”
This is a little but of a Pinterest Monday cheat, since I searched this recipe out on pinterest instead of finding it there originally. But my neighbor told me her grandma used to make graham cracker cakes and it sounded delicious and fun. Plus my five year old daughter loves graham crackers with icing. Well,Continue reading “Graham Cracker Cake”
We went to the fall festival at the elementary school over the weekend. <<< Here’s Little Boy playing “product placement” at the fair. After this event last year, I got stuck with a couple of goldfish. (Read that story here if you’re interested.) I wasn’t about to let that happen again this year. The twinsContinue reading “Dodged that one! SCORE!”
They put the tape over their own mouths. I swear.
Over the weekend our power went out. For FOUR HOURS. I’m like, how am I going to entertain my kids with no TV? Wow. Am I the Ugly American or what?
I put the twins to bed between seven-thirty and eight every night. Usually they fall asleep pretty quickly. But one night last week it was after nine and I realized they were still up. I heard running feet, slamming doors, and screaming laughter upstairs. I told them to lie down, but seconds later they wereContinue reading “This is why they won’t sleep”
It’s quite a talent, but Little Girl actually managed to use her homework to insult her siblings. <<< Here she is snickering to herself about it. The teacher wanted her to write and draw pictures about the beginning, middle, and end of her day. Since her day includes lots of siblings, she saw an opportunity.Continue reading “How to liven up homework time”
Little Girl is terrified of Chuck E. Cheese. (Not that I blame her. That giant mouse is creepy.) This phobia was not alleviated in any way by the last party we attended at the Chuck E. Establishment. I think there was a sadistic individual inside the Chuck E. Costume that day. Call me crazy, butContinue reading “Chuck E Cheese”
I went out to lunch with a friend recently. Unfortunately, the twins were out of school, so I had to drag them along. My friend was very gracious about this, and refrained from comment as Little Girl jumped all over the seat, exposed her underwear to a neighboring table, and wondered aloud why her gourmetContinue reading “Why you don’t want to take me out to lunch”
