I don’t know what in the heck that kid was doing… Nor do I care… As long as he puts all that shit back up when he’s done!
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…
Continuing #JanBlogADay is day 15: Transportation.
As in the 286 different trains, cars, monster trucks, ambulances, fire trucks, 4-wheelers, and airplanes I just boxed up and hauled out of Garridon’s room.
Today’s link up for #JanBlogADay is Made with Love
Those words only make me think of two things…
It’s day 5 of #JanBlogADay and today’s topic is Biggest Fear.
This is an incredibly easy topic. My absolute biggest fear is something happening to one of these angel faces.
Thank the good Lord above for my blessings.
This guy’s biggest fear?
Dreams where he’s at school in his underwear coming true!
I don’t know why in the world the goofy school schedules the kid’s parties all at the same time! The parking (or lack thereof) is reedick.
And this was the line to get in…
It was fuh- reezin!
Plus.. Because the parties were at the same time.. I spent the whole time running back and forth between each class.
Garridon’s teacher did a fun game to hand out presents.. They played “hot potato” but with the presents.
Everyone got a coloring book and crayons.. Which I thought was a great idea.. And we were supposed to put them in gift bags. Well I forgot and wrapped Garridon’s. I justified it to myself by saying bags are boring for little kids & unwrapping is fun.
Well I realized at the party why this rebel mamma needs to follow rules..
The bags were meant to carry all their party goodies home. Which is pretty much a genius idea. Hats off to the room mom.
I rushed back over to Daynie’s room just in time to find out why all the kids getting the same gift was also a genius idea.
Daynie was opening her secret Santa gift and I was mortified at her behavior!
She had a bad look on her face and was saying..a baby! I’m not a baby! I hate babies!.
And here is where the sweet little girl (who also happens to be a church friend and was on our t ball team) was calling Daynie’s name and when Daynie looked up the little girl had the most excited look on her face and was saying.. Do you like it?
I. Was. MORTIFIED!
Daynie was being such a brat.
I don’t know who the mom to my right witnessing this atrocious behavior was.. But thank The Lord that the mom to my left I knew and was reassuring me that all of our kids have acted that way at some point.
I grabbed Daynie and gave her an earful. I could tell she was embarrassed and actually felt bad about the thought that the little girl might have heard her act that way over the present she brought. Sometimes I have to remember that Daynie is seven and thinks like a seven year old. Her mind was on herself and the disappointment of not getting the present she wanted. Once I got onto her and expanded her thought process to include other people.. I could see the look on her face and could tell she felt bad about it. That made me feel good that she felt remorse for her actions and compassion for another’s feelings.
A few minutes later a mom asked Daynie to take a pic with her son. Daynie kind of made a face at her like are you serious? Do I have to?
Again I was one embarrassed mamma!
The mom said her son did the same thing when she told him she wanted a pic of the two of them. He said he didn’t want to take a picture with a girl!
That did make me think how awkward and embarrassing that could be through the eyes of seven year olds.
The reason the mom wanted the pic was because these three kids gave been in the same class together since Kindergarten..
Daynie’s teacher made these totally adorable ornaments…
I love it! I could tell she put a lot of time in them! What a great keepsake!
Next Daynie’s class decorated cookies.
I ran back down to Garridon’s party to get him and came back to find this..
Here’s some of Garridon’s artwork in the hall.
Brooklyn & Garridon…
Garridon’s teacher’s gift…
Daynie’s was the same except with her teachers name .
Before we left we took a little stroll through the Lost & Found.
Yes. That is serious people!
My kids do the weirdest shit…
But they did give me an idea for a late night shenanigan!
Speaking of late night shenanigans..
This sure did send me into a flashback the other day..
If it wasn’t 30 bucks I would have bought it.
Speaking of overpriced stuff I REEEALLY want…
I loaded this up in my buggy til I saw the guys ass..
Speaking of seriously???
Poor poor baby Jesus…
Which brings me back to…
My kids so the weirdest shit…
Sunday afternoon we headed to Granny’s where Aunt Hollie had everything ready to carve some pumpkins with the kid’s cousins!
This was one VERY excited kid! He has been begging to buy a pumpkin every time we go to Wal-Mart!
First they chowed down on some pizza..
Daynie was #2 and when she picked hers out…Garridon FREAKED! I guess he had already decided he wanted THAT pumpkin. He chased Daynie down for it. Then threw a hell of a fit. It was so hilarious b/c it took us all by surprise. His faces are hilarious.
Danny tried to convince him this was a better pumpkin.
He ended up throwing even more of a fit. Danny had to take him inside and take care of BiZnesSS. He still came out & put on tha pouty face.
Aunt Hollie came to the rescue & got his mind on picking out what he wanted to carve.
Our oldest nephew is seriously the most serious pumpkin carver like EVER. He was so quiet & intent the whole time. His also was the most awesome.
Garridon grabbed that little pumpkin carving kit & went to town! He didn’t even ask what to do..he just started sawing the top off. He was sooo excited…he kept saying to himself..”I’ve never got to carve a pumpkin all by myself before”
He worked very hard on it for awhile. He wouldn’t let anyone help. He finally let Danny finish cutting the top off.
Both kids did a great job at cleaning them out..but I think Daddy may have finished off the carving for them.
Daynie’s design had a little mishap..LOL..so I think they just winged something on the otherside last minute.
We went home & took a family nap 🙂
Then at 5 Danny & the kids headed back over to the RV park for the park’s Halloween party.
Apparently..the Hulk gloves & mask to Garridon’s costume were left in my car. He refused to go to the party without them. He said that he looked like a cucumber & no one would know what he was. So I drove them over to the park. By the time I got there Garridon was playing games & looked at me and said he didn’t need them and he didn’t know WHY his daddy called me to bring them. Lol. THAT KID.
They had it decorated really cute.
They had a few fun games for the kids to play. They were really into it!
Here..all the kids were gathered around a table & a lady had boxes w/ body parts in them. The kids had to feel inside & guess the body part.
I left early b/c I had a lot to do at the house..but Danny & the kids stayed pretty late. When Daynie got home..she was so excited to run in and tell me that her and Garridon both won 1st place in the costume contest!
They had a great time!
On my way out..I snapped this picture w/ my phone.
This evening the kids put on their costumes and we went to their school for the Harvest Moon Festival
Garridon is Hulk.
And Daynie is Can Can Sally.
That’s the name in the costume catalog. She saw that costume in there about a month before Halloween and that was it.. that’s all she talked about. I tried to convince her it might be slightly inappropriate for a seven year old to be a trick or treating saloon girl. Oh well.. As you can see I ended up giving in and buying her the whole shebang. And she is one happy girl.
I was staring at the high school girl running this booth and making a comment about her skimpy highly inappropriate for a teenager to wear to a kids carnival sexy skin tight nurses outfit…. When… Ahem… Aunt Babe ever so gently reminded me that my 7 year old was stepping up to play the game in her Old West Saloon Whore attire. Lol. Well played irony. Well played.
The night was pretty fun.. Long lines, cheesy games, cheap tickets, and candy galore!
Because.. Umm c’mon..it’s CHICKEN CHUNKIN!!
Please note the game with the toilet. Yes. The object of the game is to toss the whole roll of toilet paper… Into the toilet. The end.
