This is a 10 year old and he is a tween. I am learning a lot about Tweens lately. Especially, now that I own one.
Most recently he asked me why I am always taking pictures of myself and I told him because I use the app Snap Chat and He said that people born in the 19’s didn’t need to use apps. I felt all of my 31 years at that moment :).
I have always seen the pictures. I thought they were fake. I thought no way would kids really write things like this on accident. Surely, they jest. Some adult is just trying to be funny. That is until I seen one with my very own eyes-written by the cutest kid ever (duh they are family).
I haven’t had much to write about lately (any time really) so I haven’t. Is this a good excuse? No, because I love writing blogs but lately my words they just don’t come out right.
The most interesting thing to happen today? I moved the recliner and found ds games, a dog toy, and my cats mouse (play mouse or it could have been very interesting).
The school year has started and I have discovered third grade is tough. I have to figure out problems to help my son. The days of counting on my fingers are now gone and it makes me sad for his sake!
Our dog Blue is now a massive beast. He has an obsession with eating pillows or anything really. He makes me angry at least five times a day. He chews on wooden chair legs.
He chews on my poor Trixie girl. He chews on my cat. And apparently he has tried chewing on the ups man because now I have to meet him to get my packages.
He has (for now) all his man bits. My youngest said just the other day how Blues guts hang out everywhere. When he lays down on the porch his guts lay beside him lol (we are talking scrotum bits if you haven’t caught my meaning). And I’m so glad my youngest calls them guts! My oldest probably wouldn’t have used the same words to explain.
My pet peeve for the day is my cat and his play mice. He plays fetch like a dog and every time I vacuum I throw his mice out of my way and when I turn around they are back in my way. I tried putting them in a bag on the counter and somehow the bag had a hole eaten thru and all mice were rescued from what I assume he thinks suffocation lol.
Oh the life I lead…
It was my brother in laws birthday was this week and I found the most awesome present ever. I read the reviews on Amazon and it made me laugh so hard. He received it yesterday and said it is pretty funny. I’m patting myself on the back for this one.
My oldest son was cracking me up yesterday. He was giving advice to my youngest on how to get the “ladies”. I think he will be a ladies man a lot sooner than I would like him to be. He told me a few nights ago that one of the reasons he loves me so much is because I am so smart. I told him thank you (and this is where the man comes out in him) and he says to me, “Yeah, when I can’t find my shoes you always seem to know where to find them,” and he’s 9 so that is a pretty awesome compliment if you ask me.
Just a few days ago I got to have a proud moment when he held the door open for a little lady and her daughter (I assume it was because of the little girl) but you just never see polite kids anymore. I’ve had kids let the door slam in my face while carrying groceries or something similar so it made me proud to see him open the door for someone even if he still uses his fork like a shovel sometimes (it’s a work in progress).
Now, the youngest needs a lot more work. We were looking at campers a while back and the salesman was just going on and on about them and Shooter announces really loudly, “Wait for it…Waaaiiitt for it,” and just busts ass. It was so loud and gross. I know that we should have said something and we did …in between a giggle here or there. The salesman never skipped a beat. He just went on trying to sale campers.
My poor baby Trixie must have been bitten by a snake. She wouldn’t pose for me (no lady likes having a double chin in a picture and this chin hangs to the floor).
My son had a baseball tournament a few weeks ago (baseball is pretty much 85% of my life right now). Of course there are like 10 other teams there from the surrounding area and what do I do? O I fall on my ass. It’s okay though it happens a lot. My mom and I just laughed and laughed and I got to thinking about it (after laughing about it with my husband also) and I have taken a lot of “trips” in my lifetime. I took a trip down some cement steps in England, I took a trip down a step in Coyote Ugly in Memphis (I blame that on the alcohol and being one of the worse bars I have ever been in), walking to an overlook at the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, Las Vegas, well you get the point. Am I the only one who has all these stories about falling on my ass? Thank God I can laugh about them or I would have a serious complex! 🙂 Sometime, I will share with you my favorite “Sara no “H” accidents”. I have some good ones to tell.
Well, I guess I will quit rambling …For now.. 🙂
My kiddos have a lot of things in common but they are still their own person. My fave difference that I discovered today…
He was really impressed how flexible his brother is so he tried and tried to do the same. We couldn’t quit laughing. Some people are just not made to bend but you could never question the determination!
Believe it or not he got his bendiness from me. 🙂
And I don’t mean venereal day!
My husband and I were talking about this the other day. How did it go from flowers to electronics and such? So, I didn’t even really prepare at all this year. I got him a card and I’m totally letting him watch his shows and I haven’t rolled my eyes once.
And if he plays his cards right there might be a little something extra later. I doubt it but you never know. I am feeling lovey dovey today. 🙂 And this evening he is going to cook me some wild hog. Yes, that is correct. I have never tried it and he’s never cooked it so this could be interesting. Don’t worry I have wine. 🙂
I also had a very smart idea this morning. I woke my children today with huge Hershey kisses. Why is that smart? Well, I bribed my spazzo child with it and he got ready for school without one complaint. He was so excited about his massive Hershey kiss and school party that he didn’t complain about getting out of bed, putting his clothes on, or when I sprayed him with stinky stuff (Axe body spray so he would smell nice for the ladies). I know that doesn’t seem like a big deal to you but with the oldest one I could whisper his name from my room and he would be up and ready for school in 10 minutes. The spazzo takes like 40 minutes to put a shoe on (notice A shoe not TWO). I was very excited when he just jumped up and got ready without making me a spazzo also. 🙂
I also have a Valentine and it’s not even my husband. I let Spazzo have his first friend stay the night a couple of weeks ago and his little friend told his teacher that I am his Valentine. 🙂 I should have got him a huge Hershey Kiss. Man, I’m an awful Valentine. It’s cute now but when the kids are older it will be awkward having all their friends wanting to be my Valentine mwhahahaha. I kid I kid.
Everyone should have something special so I even let our dog Trixie have one of the boys army men. She isn’t enjoying it as much as usual because I gave it to her and every time she starts chewing she looks at me wondering if it’s okay. I am even going to play fetch with my cat later. Of course that is more entertaining to me than him but he loves the attention.
So, Happy Valentine’s everyone!! I hope your day goes lovely and if you don’t get flowers I hope that you find some money on the ground, get to watch your DVR’d shows, someone gives you an army man to chew on, or plays fetch with you.
