There are a lot of fairies in Childress...

There are a lot of fairies in Childress, so I hear, people say they're everywhere... I think I've seen a couple but I wasn't sure it they were real fairies, so I decided to be a good neighbor and  build a fairy compound.  They will have lots of shelter under the mushrooms in case it rains because you know they hate to get their hair wet, I landscaped it of course, you know how fairies love a pretty place, with some purple mums and green foliage and so they won't get hungry, a yellow tomato! Surely the fairies will like it...

Laundry Rooms are Romantic

This morning, the sun wasn't quite out yet, and I'm changing Sager's  school shirt because of course he thinks there is something on it (OCD) and he looks so sweet and lovely, so I bend down to kiss his little cheek and he whispers to me, this Laundry room is really romantic.  

What do I do, of course I say, quite being such a dork!!! and get your butt by the front door and wait on your ride! (but it really was funny!)   Because it is so lovely being his momma.

Sager and his Rainbow Socks

I actually had to wear socks the other morning so, as I was looking for some in my sock drawer and I found Sager;s beloved rainbow socks.  You can not imagine how many memories these socks brought back.  Sager wore these socks everyday ( I mean everyday, there is absolutely no exaggeration when I make that statement).  He wore these socks for nearly a year.  He had to wear these socks.  Ever fiber of his being cried out in rebellion if these socks were not on his feet.  I must say I wish I had video taped some of the melt downs that occurred as I so lovingly and sweetly tried to explain to Sager that Mommy just didn't get the laundry done like she should have, she was busy doing other things like staying up all night to make sure a small child was breathing or medicating that small small child or trying to get that same small child to ear something other than chips and pretzels and other crunchy things ( I know excuses, excuses).  I must admit sometimes they weren't clean but who are you going to defer to the gods of cleanliness or a small child who has OCD in every cell in his body (and just for the record, I always defer to the small Monk).  The day that he could no longer fit his skinny little feet into the stupid things was a sad day indeed especially since Sager's ChaCha who started the whole rainbow sock thing couldn't remember where she got them (and believe me she tried because she ordered several other "rainbow" socks  must to Sager's disappointment.  Sager has gotten better about some things but not everything.  At least now he can wear regular white socks (although they have to have certain toes, and certain tops and certain middles, not too long and not too short... do you see a pattern here?)

Stampin Up!

I went to a Stampin Up get together on Tuesday night and we all had the best time.  Everyone who went brought either a craft or a card for everyone to make.  It was a birthday themed party and Melissa V. and Stephanie H. thought of everything.  We all made the cutest things and ate cookies with frosting! Those are two of my most favorite things in all of the world!!  

Well I'm off to piano and ukulele lessons and then we might just have to celebrate because today was report card day and we had a BUNCH of good grades around here! Congratulations Scout, Shaw and Sager - You guys rock!!!

I'm a total copy cat!!

I went to a blog training at the end of the summer and it never even crossed my mind that I would have a personal blog.  A lot of the teachers have them and I totally love reading them so I decided that I would do one just to show off my kids and our crazy lives.  So here is my second post and it is about the newest member of our family. Her name is Yolanda.  Isn't she the prettiest thing you've ever seen?  Shaw and I totally love her and she loves us.  Do you know how I know?  Because she runs after us and tries to bite us even when she's laying down getting her tummy rubbed.  Duh!!! I'm thinking maybe she's just not used to her surroundings yet.  But one day soon, I know she'll realize the error of her ways and she'll start being sweet.  I just know it!! Until then, I'm not judging her, I'm  just loving her.  Well I'm off to a Stampin' Up get together!! I'll have to post later about all the fun I going to have.  

first post

Just wait - I've got a lot to tell!!!
