If Carson & Brynlee could create their dream playlist, it would look something like this: (in order of priority)

1- Black Eyed Peas: I gotta feeling
2- Beyonce: Single Ladies
3- Black Eyed Peas: I gotta feeling
4- Taylor Swift- you belong with me
5- Black Eyed Peas: I gotta feeling
6- Going to the Chapel
7- Black Eyed Peas: I gotta feeling

Repeat over and over again!!!

All's Well that ends well

For better or worse, my kids moods & demeanors seem to affect my mood a lot!!! Especially that last half of the day, during the crunch time couple hrs. before bed. If things going totally awry, I go nuts, & somehow my perception of the whole day isn't too fantastic and vice versa.

A new little gentleman entered our family tonight and he's a keeper. He started out sitting at the dinner table upon the first request (a biggie in itself) and said, "oooh mom, this looks delicious. Thanks for making it." What??? Then when he was about done, " Mom, i'm having a little trouble can you please help me with my last bites." Then at bath time, "Mom, I really love you." Oh, it goes on and on....he asked a question in baby talk (which is currently a major pet peeve...another story of the the baby talk phase that has long wore out it's welcome) and before I could say anything, "oh I'm sorry I talked like that mom." Really it doesn't end here, it went on and on until bed time, but point made. I seriously don't know what happened, but I'm LOVING this. and to top it off, I had a GREAT day!!!

A Sticky Situation

Do you ever have those moments as a mom where you decide you're going to be that spontaneous, super cool, and fun mom who decides on a whim that you'll do a fun project with your kids just because you know they will love it, even though it will probably make the biggest mess! If i'm being honest, I wish I was this kind of mom more often!!!
But, I do have my moments, and here's what came from our latest memory making project....
and it didn't was messy beyond messy!!! But....they had a blast with their pudding creations!
and p.s. those chunks in Carsons pudding do not reflect my inability to make a smooth consistant pudding mix. His pictured became one with his pudding ;)
and it wasn't long before the mess became too much and the only option was to stick them on them patio and give them free reign with the hose.
