The day my kid found my blog..

Daynie: Oh yeah mama I checked out your blog.

Me: You what?

Daynie: And I really like the lazy mom meals.

Me: How did you know how to go to it?

Daynie: I just googled mommy edwards dot com on Daddy’s tablet.

Me: How do you even know how to get to Google?

Daynie: It says right here Google….

Me: But how do you even know what Google does?

Daynie: Because when you and Daddy were arguing about that thing the other day Daddy told you to Google it.  And plus one day at school my teacher used Google on the smart board to search for a game we were going to do.

Me: So exactly how much of my blog did you see?

Daynie: I looked all around.

Me: Stay of my blog.

This is very problematic to say the least.

The Google & A lesson

#JanBlogADay: Teacher

The best teacher of all teachers ever is…The Google.

Everything I’ve ever needed to know…it has provided.

However, the second best teacher… Is a mom.

Like today when I taught my little sweet faced babies why it’s important to wear their seatbelt.

We were almost about to turn on the street into our neighborhood when Garridon took his seatbelt off. Now that kid most definitely knows better! So I did what any good mom would do.. And screamed at him to put it back on or I would whip the fire out of him.

But then.. To make sure he really learned his lesson.. I carried out a trick I learned from a friend.

I waited about a minute until they were engrossed in whatever again… Then BAM!

I slammed on my brakes and screamed:

Lesson learned from the best teacher ever.

If that doesn’t work… Next time I’ll make him use The Google and search: kid not wearing seat belt gets in wreck and…

Ugh! And she’s not even a teenager yet!

I have spent all of yesterday afternoon/evening and this evening…cleaning my little hoarder’s room.

My child, has some serious issues. I threw away no less than 8 shoe boxes that she proclaimed to be “collecting”. Each and every one was filled with..umm how should I say this… CRAP!

Random little pieces of nothing and everything.

Every drawer, nook, and cranny was stuffed with something that didn’t belong there.

20130114-223323.jpg

All of the cubes above were stuffed with crap.

The bad thing is I freak out and go through her room about once a month and dump every one of these out and clean it alll. It doesn’t take her but a few days to reload. Where does she get the crap to hoard??

The kids rooms are rather small and since we are trying to sell our house.. I am trying to simplify to make them appear bigger.

I boxed up over 100 bows, all her trophies, stuffed animals, and just random clutter.

This TV stand was taking up a lot of room so it had to go..

20130114-224309.jpg

And that’s when I saw this…

20130114-224452.jpg

That child is damn lucky she wasn’t home when I found it too.

We have a strict rule of no food or drink in rooms. Daynie is always getting busted too. And i never ever get through to that thick headed child.

20130114-224835.jpg
Yes that’s a peanut butter cup!

Nasty. I’m shocked she doesn’t have monster sized rodents.

20130114-225022.jpg

A spoon? Really Daynie?

20130114-225232.jpg

This is all out of her room. The stuff to the left for garage sale & to the right is going into storage.
