It was our evening reading and prayer time. One of the girls kept raising her hand to share a prayer request. Finally, it was time and she gushed her story. “One time we were at McDonalds, and we went to the bathroom. There was a girl in there, and she didn’t even shut the bathroom… [continue reading]
Mom strikes again
You know how I told you last week that Little Jason was so excited to have the same preschool teachers as last year? Yeah, well, that’s interesting. I took him the second week and dropped him off.

Funny Baby Video
We laugh hysterically every time we give Bobby Cheerios! We’ve actually seen him stuff more in his mouth than this, but you get the idea! Sorry it gets out of focus at the end. I’m working on my video skills! Happy Saturday everyone. I hope you laughed with us!

I told you so
Yesterday we took the kids to eat tacos. Jason took one of the girls and together they filled all of the cups with water and placed them on the table. “I think these would be safer with lids,” I suggested to Jason. “I think they’ll be fine,” he dismissed me. “Okay, but it’s kind of… [continue reading]

Funny things that kids say
With kids you usually don’t have to wonder what they are thinking, at least not for long! They tend to just blurt it out without sifting their thoughts through filters. Many have been my embarrassing moments when I have heard one of my kids tell someone, “You have a big nose!” or “You’re fat!” While… [continue reading]
