Tonight, I let Josh stay up with us because he took a really long nap. He ate homemade Pho with us. We sat on the couch and watched Food Network together and it was so magical. He had big opinions on what would taste good and what wouldn’t. He’s super intuitive so he’d always guess […]
Step right up to the plate because you are about to hit a home run with your dinner. Tired of steamed, roasted, grilled, sautéed and stir-fried veggies? I present to you tempura-ed fried veggies. Oh my goodness. Make this deliciousness and serve it with any dipping sauce you want and your kids will scream for […]
Why do we love this recipe? Does not need to be refrigerated. Can re-roll dough with no issues. Creates sharp cut-out’s that hold their shape. TASTES AMAZING (even without the icing) It seems like these sugar cookies would be too good to be true, but here we are. Occasionally, you just run into a magic […]
At the end of a long LONG day of two baseball games and out in the hot sun, I decided that Chipotle was going to get our business for dinner. I herded the crazy squad into the establishment and pointed to the bar-top tables. “You guys sit here and wait for mommy to order.” I […]
Coming home from school yesterday, Josh started pontificating: “Mom, inside your head lives a wise owl and he helps you make good decisions.” Immediately I start cranking the rusty gears on my rusty gray matter and think “I have no idea what he’s talking about. I don’t want to make him feel crazy or dumb, […]
“Boys, we’re all hungry and we’re near our favorite sushi restaurant. Who wants to go?”
“Meeeeee!!!!!,” they all cheered in unison.
Dave and I squatted down and got on their level. “OK, guys, so if we do this, you have to promise us you’ll try your best and sit still so we can all have a nice time, right?”
“Yes mom! Sure, uh-huh!,” they all consented enthusiastically.
Dear awesome mom: you saw what was going on… my youngest decided to throw a raging fit in the middle of the crosswalk because I made him hold my hand. While he threw himself down on the ground, you locked eyes with me, pointed to Sam and said, “I’ll watch this one.” I grabbed TJ, […]
From my spot on the bench I said under my breath, “Oh, I wouldn’t do that if I were you.” I watched as all the kids lined up and one of them did “Go!”
Sam: “Mom, remember that time God stopped the rain for 3 days?”
Me: “Hmmmm… I don’t really remember that one…”
Him: “Yeah, there was a bad king too.”
So, I told TJ that if he pooped in the potty, he would get M&Ms. I hear the toilet flushing over and over again and then he runs out here with cupped hands expecting his treat. He must think his mama’s dumb. Habeas poopy little man or no treaty-treat.
