Things I've Learned This Week

I like big books and I cannot lie. There is just something about this season that makes me want to start a fire and curl up with a looooooong book. 

My dog officially weighs more than both my boys put together. It's time for her to lay off the hotdogs (her fave).

I often worry that mankind is going to start World War III soley because we enjoy trilogies.

Let’s give thanks we live in a country where political disagreements are expressed with poorly spelled Facebook posts instead of missiles.

It's that time of year again when my "fat pants" just become "pants".

You know what's more annoying than cops? People who buy old refurbished cop cars and keep the spotlight attached. You guys drive me crazy.

“You will never have this day with your children again, tomorrow they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift, breathe and notice, smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, mama. It will be over before you know it." -Jen Hatmaker

I think falling in/being in/falling out of love has been pretty well documented. Why aren’t there more songs about being hungry?

We've reached the phase of childhood when the older brother is trying to control the younger. Every moment of every day. I cannot wait until the younger outgrows the older and takes his revenge. I'm probably going to enjoy it more than I should.

I hate when people see me at Walmart & are like "Hey what are you doing here?" I'm like, "Oh you know, recruiting people for the next circus act".

If we all end up in prison one day for illegal music downloads, I can only hope that they divide us by music genres.

It's a nightly wrestle of whether I should stay up and write or catch up on the sleep I've been lacking since motherhood began. Writing always wins. I'll sleep when they're 20, right?

It’s not easy to go from sloppin’ mac n’ cheese and nuggets in sweats to chit chattin’ in trendy cocktail attire all in one evening.

I honestly think my son's last words on earth will be, "I wonder what this button does?"

The golden rule in my house is... If it's funny, you're not in trouble. I think the boys are starting to catch on.

If I were a bathroom tile salesman, my pitch would be "Think of how great this will look in the background of your Facebook pics."


  1. Well at least our World Wars are not following the scary movie path; otherwise we would be on 8 or 9. I read somewhere we should make friends with people who like big butts for we know they will not lie to us. Whenever it happens I've decided my retirement party will be at Walmart; that way at least some of my friends will be there.

  2. This is hysterical!! Totally relate and I, too, have hit the fat pants are just pants part of the year. blah. Sounds like a great week to me! haha. Happy Tuesday!
