Snakes and Snails, and Puppy Dog tails.

Kids learn from us, but we definitely learn from our kids too.

In the past 24 hours, Pierce has taught me that Vick's needs to put a child proof lid on their Vapo-rub, and ANY body part is fair game with a purple marker in your hand.

Little Boys are all kinds of fun.

It's not a teddy bear, but it'll do.

Some people struggle to get their kids to give up the bottle at bedtime. That would be too normal for Pierce. I'm trying to wean him from wearing hockey gloves and carrying a puck and stick to bed.
It wouldn't be so bad if he didn't wake up with the stitching indented into his face.

Odd ducks, these kids of mine.

Fatter by the minute

Elastic waistbands are a dangerous thing this time of year.

Got to see the baby bean today! Another big baby with a massive head. Fantastic.

All looked good though. A healthy baby, measuring about 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

I get it. I'm pregnant.

When you say, " Whoa! Do they know what's causing that?!".

I want to punch you in the face.

Its my third, don't talk to me like I'm a Duggar.

Liv handed me an envelope to open today. Inside it was a piece of paper with half a pack of gliitter and a lot of scribbling.
Me-"Thanks Liv, this is quite the creation! I love it. "
Liv- "Mom, that is NOT a creation. Its patience. I made it for you because you keep losing yours".

Mommy Fail. I most definately know what a bag of crap feels like now.

You can't teach this kind of empathy.

I often wonder what Liv is thinking about when she's quiet. Tonight, I got some insight.
While sitting quietly coloring she says. "I feel bad for people sometimes. "
Me: "That's called empathy Liv. That's good, it means you care. Who is it you feel bad for?"
Liv- "Well it's not actually a person. I feel bad for animals when we eat them, and your vagina when you push that baby out".

Not sure how the two tie together, but I appreciate the concern.

Boys will be boys.

Sometimes, especially when raising a son, I say something and I am instantly thankful that it isn't 15 years down the road.

Tonight's example:

"Pierce, if you purposely stick your testicles to that window again, I'm going to make you wash it."

Motherhood is a beautiful thing.

Jiggly Bits

I'm thinking it might be time for Liv to change in the stalls at swimming.

There is no way to recover from, "Whoa Mom, that lady's bum jiggles more than yours!".

Shoot me.

Happy Birthday LivBug!

Tomorrow marks 5 years since I realized what life is really about.
I had no idea what I was in for when I held her for the first time, and the ride hasn't stopped since.
Happy Birthday to the smartest, cheekiest, and most adorable little girl I know. I love you.

Happy Freaking Halloween Idiots.

Dear Neighbors,
I am not a violent person, but when you decided to set off 10 minutes worth of fireworks at 5 am, I did imagine that the last one was a gunshot, and you got what you deserved for being an absolute idiot.
