Kids Say the Darnedest Things

My two sons are forever keeping me on my toes. They say the darnedest things and so I thought I would share some of the things my sons have said that I had to fight back a giggle from or quite honestly sometimes I had to laugh out loud at them;

Baby K – Age 2 –

**His father tells him that he needs a cap for his drink & to keep it on the drink at a restaurant. Baby K replies rather quickly with “You need a cap for your mouth”.

**Sitting in a restaurant when I notice Baby K is staring in an evil way at another person in the restaurant. When I look back I see an older man with rather long hair. I say “K stop staring at that man”. Baby K replies “Mama him is a pirate .. argh matey” Of course his reply was loud as loud could be, hopefully that man glaring at me didn’t get offended. Come on dude he’s only two.

**Riding in the van and Baby K is being extremely loud, screeching so that his brother Aj can’t say a word because he can’t concentrate. Baby K gets told to be quiet. Baby K ever so loudly replies “You be quiet and shut your mouth”. May I add that he had an evil HAHA afterwards with a huge ass grin.

AJ – age 4 -

**Sitting in the bathtub getting all washed up before bedtime. He looks down and says “Mama I have a big penis”. A little back story; this is the boy who would always pull out his penis and wave it around as if it’s his prize possession back in the day of his 2 & 3 year old years.

**Attempting to get a cute picture of Aj (he normally hates pictures taken). I turn the camera and tell Aj to smile. Just as I click the button of the camera down comes his pants and, yeah … you guessed it, he mooned me and the camera caught the mooning part as if it were meant to be a picture of my four year old mooning me.

**“Mama what was I before I was born in your tummy”. I answer “well you were a tadpole I guess”. A couple days later he realizes something “oh no Mama, if I was a tadpole before I was in your tummy then I am going to turn into a frog”. Apparently tadpole wasn’t the proper response, considering during the time of this question we were raising tadpoles to frog stage.

So this are just a few, I wish I could think of the really awesome ones because these boys say the darnedest things daily. I must walk around with a voice recorder set to record all day long because that my friends would make perfect entertainment to play back at a get together with friends!

If I Were to Write a Book


I daydream often about book ideas, even come up with whole pages of what the typed work would look like inside of my own head. The topics range from the most off topics that one would think I would write about to a more personal nature of my life growing up.

I do know that poetry has always been where my heart is with writing. Short stories for children is something that heavily interests me as well. I doubt I would be able to sit and write a great children’s book on my own that would utilize the correct word usage for young ones though.

Ideally if I were to write a book I would want it to be a more personal, life learning type of book. One in which people can love me, hate me and yet relate to me at the same time. I am currently reading a book that fits all of those feelings and those are the books that I can’t put down.

I can only assume that if I were to write a book about my life growing up as a teen girl that I would offend some people in my family because there is a lot that has happened in my life that clearly would be my side of the story. You see I am a firm believer in there is two sides to every story and should I start getting into my personal life I would dig up some subject matter that I have long put to the back of my mind in order to keep moving forward.

I haven’t completely forgotten all that I have gone through but I do think a little bit more clearly and openly about the situations because I am nearing 30 years old and have lived and learned on my own. I now can look back and understand why things happened the way they did and be okay with that.

For me, a story about the struggles I went through as a teen leading up to my underage DWI at age 18 would be a story worth sharing, one that would hopefully be shared with other teens, mainly teen girls, as a way to hear a personal story from someone who doesn’t regret & feel bad about what she had done but wishes to place a “what if” in the heads of teen girls to ensure that they try their best to realize how awesome they are and that drinking, drugs and sex isn’t going to resolve their own inner issues.

If I were to write a book, I guess a personal story would suit me best. That is where my passion would shine through my writing. Passion behind writing is what makes an incredible read!

P.S. Clearly if I wrote a book I would have to hire a great editor because I tend to ramble with run on sentences often ;-) Deals Extreme Couponer Grocery Coupons

Heading out … Peace Out

I love you all, I love being home with my kids but I also love writing and I love socializing and so it is my pleasure to say I am heading to Type-A Parent Conference on Wednesday to meet up and be roomies with my real life best friend, @mommadjane.

We had been “virtual” friends for about two years when we met for the first time and now it has been two years since we have been in real life together. I was lucky in that I won a contest for free tickets to the conference and free 3 nights at the hotel for me and a friend, the friend ended up being none other than the rockin’ MommaDjane who I love dearly!

We really seem like sisters, we have the normal ups and downs, lack of talking daily and such that you would have with sisters, but maybe sisters is a bit extreme. I don’t care what you call it, her and I have been through a lot and she is most likely the only person online that I have met who knows the MOST about me on a personal level and she best be keeping her mouth shut! haha!

So off I go to fly for the first time, have a conference for the first time and be away from my sons for four days for the FIRST time… my daughter and I have no separation issues but my sons and I  …. oh man I think I am as bad as them!

Happy Week and weekend everyone!
