Did You Know?

Did you know that we actually own spoons? My daughter apparently thinks that the only way to sneak oatmeal from her cousin's bowl is by the fistful.

I caught her before she polished off the meal. But not before she left a 3 foot high trail of lumpy whole grains from the kitchen to the bathroom.


Did you know that I work very hard to set a good example of tidyness for my kids. "Everything has a place, everything in it's place", as my mom always says...




Did you know that there is not one single teenager living in this house?


Did you know that a dog could be as messy as a five-year old boy?


Did you know that a boy's defintion of cleaning up his S'mores ingredients is a whole lot different that his mom's instructions to clean up his S'mores ingredients before going outside to play?
Did you know that a dog can polish off an entire bag of marshmallows if they're not cleaned up properly?


Did you know that it only takes 3 pairs of undies, a copy of "Are You My Mother?" and a rubberband to make a mighty fine makeshift banjo...



Did you know that Miss M has recently grown slightly taller than my most recent baby-proofing preparations?


Did you know that Drew had a hard time finding his reading book tonight?



Did you know that, instead of reading, my son decided to throw his bouncy ball up against the wall?



Did you know that I've been putting my kids to bed a little early this week?

Oh this was so, so funny. I can hardly believe that Miss M is so destructive. And Walker had a whole bag of marshmallows? I am jealous.

Hahahahahahaha!!!! My favorite was the picture of your wall. I have a similar situation going on here - except that crooked pictures are caused by a matched set of children jumping off their top bunk in the morning... sigh.

Obvious who is out of town. Hope you get it together before his return- or are you hoping he will stay away? Seems you have found an effective strategy... xo Jenn N

Oh, I could not come to your house as I am an obsessive compulsive wall organizer. I have an eye for symmetry from years of sewing and I can't stand crooked pictures...anywhere. The rest of your place,however, makes my house look like I should be featured on an episode of Hoarders. Perhaps I should go clean now.

Were those pictures of my house? :) I should send you pictures of the destruction zone that is my house. I am so glad I am not alone. I love the banjo by the way. I play one so my kids enjoy untuning it regularly.
