If you give a MOM a cookie!

I found this in the June 2006 Parenting Magazine. I just thought it was Hilarious! I just gotta share it!

If you give a mom a cookie,
Shes gonna want a glass of
milk* to go with it.
But before she gets the milk*,
she has to find her toddlers
pink ladybug boots.
To find the ladybug boots
she has to venture into
the playroom.
When she tries to tidy up
the playroom, she finds
daddy's left shoe, the salad
bowl, and an open package
of graham crackers. She also
finds her cell phone.
So she'll yell at her toddler
about the cell phone and
wake up the baby from
his morning nap.
But when she goes in to pick
up the baby the cell
phone will ring.
When she answers, it'll be
the doctors office reminding
her that she had an
appointment this morning
and would she like to reschedule,
say, sometime in November?
While she is trying to mentally
re-create he calender, the
baby will start to cry.
Then her toddler will run
to see what's the matter
and find the graham crackers.
When she finds the graham
crackers there will be
crumbs all over the playroom.
So the mom will get the
broom from the hall closet
and notice that daddy forgot
to buy diapers last night,
as she asked.
But she will find her
toddlers pink ladybug boots.
And when she finds the pink
ladybug boots, she'll remember
her emergency stash of
diapers in the car.
So She'll wrestle her toddler
and her baby into their car
seats and drive to
the store to buy more
diapers and more milk.
while she is buying the
milk she'll remember that
she wanted a glass of milk*.
And if she manages to buy
the Milk* without a tantrum
or poop episode from either
of her kids....
Then shes going to need another cookie.
(By Julie Tilsner inspired by Laura Numeroff's If you give a Mouse a Cookie)

I loved this and thought all of you would too! Oh the * next to the milk means in the origional printing from the magazine it said Latte. I can relate better when it is milk, so i changed it.

But hes a RAT!

I constantly go through my day thinking oh thats funny, i should post it......and as you can see i have slacked. But this I just couldnt let pass. Yesterday I was putting down for a nap my nephew James Ivey ( i watch him everyday) and i got that erie feeling that someone or something was watching me.........uhhh i dont like that. I looked up and almost fell over backward scared. there was a HUGE moose starring at me through their window, holy cow thats AWSOME, naps over. I called all the kids in and we watched him for a few minutes and then i thought ya know i have a 20lbs pound bag of carrots left over from Erikas wedding that are going bad and so we even fed them. Oh it was sooooo fun! Oh and the cutest part was after about 5-6 carrots that mammas baby came over so we were tossing the carrots to him and the Mamma. it was fun Isaac said the mamma is a bad mamma because she kept taking carrots out of the babys mouth! oh it was a blast. if i thought about it i would have some pictures to post But all i have is an empty bag of carrots! ohh well. the kids LOVED it, my dog on the other hand acted as if she was screaming " do you know what you are feeding??? get away from that window, board it up and run save your self, i'll hold them off!!!!!" Luci is a summissive girl Lab/ German Shepherd dog. I have always wondered if she would make a good guard dog in the event some one broke into our home. After that i am a little more confidant in her.

Here are a couple of "Out of the mouths of kids!" stories...

Isaac the other day came to me whinning "mamma, James is pushing me" I said "But Isaac he is only 1 1/2 years old, you are much bigger, I dont think he could hurt you too bad, just tell him to be nice." he replyed "but mamma he has big muscles packed inside that little body."

Too Cute!!

We were at my parents for Ians birthday party and he's running around the house with an empty watergun pretend shooting my sisters chihuahua. the dog runs to my ssisters fiance and sits in his lap and he says "oh be nice, dont shoot the dog" (not a direct quote) then Ian says "But he a RAT!"

I guess he's caught on to the teasing.

Kids are cute!! wouldnt trade them for the world!
