Peanut butter and moms lap top

Theres nothing more exciting then to be scrubbing the bathroom and come back through to see your toddler setting on your lap top with a jumbo jar of Jiff peanut butter setting playing Nick Jr. and using her hands to eat the peanut butter. Besides my key pad being covered in peanut butter so is my screen since she has to point at Dora every time she sees Dora on the screen.My child just cant seem to figure out why she has to quit her game and put the peanut butter up even with me explaining ten times ..She sees nothing wrong with what she has done .


Sick kid still wants to go to school !

My oldest dd had a fever Sunday night but woke Monday morning feeling better and her fever appeared to be gone .I tried to get her to stay home anyway but she refused and cried until I let her go to school. (It would be nice if all my children cried to go to school.) she came home Monday with a fever and a cough so I was up all night with her. Now thinking she would love to stay home(I should have known better) the minute I told her she would not be going to school she freaked out and started screaming to the top of her lungs, begging her to stop screaming before she puked or had a asthma attack I started asking if she wanted ice cream , candy anything ..just to get her to stop. Nothing seemed to work then a light bulb went off in my over loaded brain and I asked is she would like to play school at home today ! She agreed so she went through all the steps of what takes place on the classroom on Tuesdays and so I got to play teacher today. She made sure I was right on task to any time I didn't do it exactly like her teacher she let me know and I had to go back over the steps !


Halloween (part 3)

Yeah I know Halloween is long gone but I did say I was going to finish my story.

I should have known something was up when one of my teens decided he wanted to stay home.Now my exact words before I left was .. NO FRIENDS, NO PHONE, NO LEAVING THE HOUSE and KEEP THE DOORS LOCKED! I think I made it plain enough. When I got home after taking the little ones tricker treating I walked into my house and didn't have to use the key, as I walked in paper flew out into my yard.My husband fetched the paper (such a good guy) and it read :
Staying the night at Scotts here's the number to call.

OK well he left a number that was nice but do you see anything wrong with this picture?

1 Door unlocked .
2Left without my knowledge.
3He answered the phone or door to have got the idea to leave.
4He went with a friend
5 He left the house.

Now when I finally caught up to him , he said his friend wanted him to go to the haunted house and sleep over and he thought he locked the door and he FORGOT I told him to stay home.
Now I made it very clear ..and HE FORGOT!

Does he think I was born yesterday?

Now on to my 3rd child..

He went with a friend , yeah with my knowledge but I did tell him hes only to go to people we know ,or the other kids parents know and fire stations or restaurants.

He comes home and tells me him and his friend walked for 2 miles and went to every house and they were alone.

I do know next year all my children will be going with me. I gave them a inch they took three hundred and sixty two miles.

Now no thats not all ...

Its now what NOv 3rd so halloween was 4 days ago I thought all the candy was gone or hid well. I was cleaning out my shoe closet today and I found a plastic grocery sack full of halloween candy !

None of the children claimed it , so I left it on the kitchen counter. My 3rd child came by and snatched it while I wasen't looking. You know he has not the slightest clue as to where the candy went he didn't take it off the counter.

yep ..He didnt do it...
