little moments

that make me happy I'm a mom....

Cormac, almost daily, comes to me with a handful of books and says "Look mom, story time!!! How exciting!!!"

I asked Isaac to help me with my calculus homework. He said "what do you have to do?" I told him I needed to find the derivative , he picked a random graph in my book and said "there it is!! That was easy 'cause I'm really smart!!"

And this is what I'm forced to listen to and laugh at for hours....


Mac-"knock knock knock joke"

Me- "who's there"

Mac- "pickle!!"

Me- "Pickle who?"

Mac- "pickle and nachos!!"

Tears of Joy

The greatest invention from the state of Utah has made it's way to Arizona folks!!!!! I wept a small tear of joy today at Target while in the condiments aisle. Because right there in between the ketchup and relish was a perfect little pink bottle of FRY SAUCE!!!

For those of you that have never had this wonderful treat, I'm sorry that you have been so deprived. It's a sin against humanity and it should not be happening any longer. I'm glad Target has finally stepped up and decided to do something about it. Now you have to take the next step and go pick some up, and on your way home stop by your favorite fry joint and pick up a large order of fries. Then go home and accept the fact that you will never fit into your skinny jeans again and enjoy a little bit of heaven on earth!!!

Happy eating folks!!

oh and here's a fun little tid-bit I got from Mac this morning after he shared a sip of his blue icee with me:

me- "mmm that's a yummy blue icee"

mac- "It sure is!!!!"

a couple things....

1. I finally figured out what colors to paint my house and we have a painter scheduled to come in the middle of march (I hate that it's so far away)!!!!

2. My two year old pulled my pants down and then kicked me in the shins yesterday all while laughing hysterically.....I'm concerned, and highly entertained.

3. Was I only supposed to put 2 things down because I titled this post "a couple things"? Oh well, you love me anyways.

4. I am really sick of 18 year old boys. I'm so glad I never have to go back to that age and stage in my life again.

5. What exactly is a 26 year old supposed to act like? I keep getting told that I don't act my age (by 18 year old boys by the way), but I'm pretty sure I'm just being myself. Should I be more serious?a little less sarcastic? should I stop calling them douche bags even though there is no better term to describe their behavior?

6. Here's some valuable information I learned in class last week. If you are hearing voices in your head, don't drink energy drinks, it makes the voices talk more. Best bit of information I've obtained all year.

Thanks for listening, I feel a little better.

Isaac's 2nd soccer game

Yesterday was Iser Mans 2nd soccer game and I remembered the camera!!! He didn't score any goals this week but he still had a blast playing. His team name is the Pirates, and he's pretty sure they're the coolest things ever!!!

He's been talking about the super bowl a lot the last few weeks. He was completely heart-broken when the Cardinals didn't win and yesterday he declared that "if the pirates played the 'takers' (steelers), they'd totally win!!"

Valentines Craftiness

I got crafty. And I know what you are all wondering... "did hell freeze over?" and the answer is no, it did not. Well, technically I don't know if it did or not, but we'll assume that since the apocalypse hasn't begun, hell continues to burn in a fiery rage. Anyways, I got crafty making valentines for Isaac to hand out at school tomorrow.

I didn't do this to show what a good mom I am, or so that Isaac would be the coolest kid in class (although, I'm pretty sure he will be). I did it solely to avoid calculus and statistics homework. Because after all, if I have valentines crafts to make I couldn't possibly do homework!!! Right?!?!

Here's what I made.....

They're silly lips and mustaches that you put on your lollipop stick so you look funny while eating it. The mustaches turned out way better than the lips. But hey, I free handed it and well, lips are difficult. I also printed out paper airplane templates and folding instructions for him to hand out. I found them at , and they actually fly really well.

So that was my little adventure into craftiness, don't expect it to happen again anytime soon. Unless of course I have a calculus and statistics test on the same day again.

You Have To See This.

This is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. I just keep watching it over and over, it doesn't get old. This kid just had some kind of dental surgery and was given quite the cocktail.

Poor kid, we've all been there at least once in our lives.

Isaac had his first soccer game today, he scored 3 goals!! I forgot my cameras and feel like the worst mom in whole world.

Isaac called my mom to tell her all about the game and it went something like this......

"Today I had soccer practice but it was kind of a day and so we were the pirates and we beat-up the tigers 'cause they wore orange and we wore yellow but we ran really fast and kicked the ball and then got 3 goals and ran really fast and then had juice!!!! It was so freakin' awesome!!!"

And he told this story while running in circles around our living room.

We are so proud of Isaac, he was a great sport and really got into the game. While on the bench he was yelling "they need to put me in the game so we can win!!!" I'll be sure to take my cameras next time!!!

Further proof

Remember when I told you about the side effects my children were suffering because of my going back to school? You can read about it here if you don't.

Well, here is further proof that my children are suffering........

He said he was looking for his toothbrush, but I can't imagine how this could possibly be helping with the process.

Hopefully I'll at least be able to cover the cost of his therapy once I'm done with school.

Oh, he's also taken to saying freakin', a lot. As in, "I'm so freakin' hungry mom!!" and "that's so freakin' cool!!!!"

Groundhog day.

I realize I'm a little late on this post, but it's for a good reason. I completely forgot about groundhog day. And do you want to know why I completely forgot about groundhog day? Because it no longer matters to me whether or not Phil sees his shadow. I live in Arizona, it's going to be 80 degrees today. We don't suffer from this evil you call winter.

But you all enjoy your extra weeks with it!!!! I'm gonna go work on my tan!!!

I just went running folks!!! I know, it's hard to believe. I'm not entirely sure what came over me, but I woke up this morning and thought, "my ass is way too saggy for my likings, I'll go for a run!!" So I did. It was maybe a mile, and I walked for part of it, but that's not the point. The point is, I might have a brain tumor!!!! Especially because I'm thinking of going again tomorrow. I'll be sure to make an appointment with a doctor to check out my mental health soon, like maybe after I lose 5 pounds and get a firm bottom.

Oh and one more thing.... GO CARDINALS!!!!!!!!
