Wednesday's Quick Words

I need to commit to posting once a week.  This place is a mad-house....ALWAYS.  I am always thinking of what I'd like to blog about, but, mustering the energy to actually do it is harder than it seems. is a whole bunch of random-ness.

  • Marlin can't catch a break...poor little red head.  Croup, stitches, cold, ear infection.  Surely, the little guy will be free of any ailment soon!
  • Madeline is going to pay me back for every single minute I made my parents worry.  She lays in the floor flat as a board and screams if she doesn't like the response she garners.  I never knew tantrums like that really existed.  It's funny right now, but in a year, I'm sure it won't be.
  • All of my babies are total hams.  Whenever they see a camera, they say cheese.  Like...with their face all scrunched up and silly.  I'll have to post a picture from my phone of them.  So funny.
  • One day, I swear I'm going to post some house rules (mostly just to be funny and some to actually get a point across).  Some examples would be, but are not limited to:
    • If you are too lazy to take the trash or recycling out...DO NOT stack your trash on my counter.
    • Bottles and sippy cups should be fully dismantled before going in the dishwasher.  Likewise, they should be put back together before going back into the cabinet.  Stacking them on the counter isn't putting them away.
    • Opinions are like bottoms.  Every body's got one...few people want to see yours or hear it.
    • However, if your opinion is requested, by all means...let us hear it.
    • I know you might have done this before.  But, if you haven't noticed...these kids are mine.  So, back off and let me be their parent.
    • If I'm around...I'll discipline my kids.  Thanks for your help, but, I've got this.
    • If you aren't paying for it...keep your criticism to yourself.
    • In this house, we say the blessing, please, thank you and I love you.  
    • We also scream a lot in the house - out of annoyance, happiness, etc.  We are loud.  
    • The dogs were here before you.
    • Shoes are ALWAYS optional.
    • Pants are not (unless you wear a diaper...then pants are optional)
    • There is an exception to every rule.  However, your pleas are not always the exception.  We reserve the rights as your parents or as the leaders of this house to determine exceptions.  They may not always be consistent and history does not a precedent make.  Take note.
    • In this house, we do not play favorites.  (Unless, you are being the most well behaved child...then you are my favorite :) ).
  • Sometimes I feel like Molly gets a lot of my emotions on the blog.  That does not mean that I am not superbly emotionally attached to Marlin and Madeline.  There is something about the emotions of your first born that make me especially nostalgic.  Maybe it's because she ended one chapter of our lives and started another.
  • A lot of times I feel like the twins get more daily attention than Molly.  That may be because they are younger, because they are 2 people, because they are so ridiculously cute or because Molly is so ridiculously cute and a bit more independent.  Either way, I always try to give the same attention to them all.  Mommy guilt is awesome.
  • Madeline is only the baby by 1 minute.  None the less, she's my baby...with all the rights and privileges attached to that spot.
  • Marlin is my boy...with all the rights and privileges attached to that spot.
  • Molly is the get it.  They all hold such special and different pieces of my heart.  And, they all push different buttons.  All in all...we are pretty screwed when they are teenagers.
  • I feel like I'm a pretty nice and easy to get along with kind of girl.  However, you mess with my kids...I'll go 7 kinds of bat-shit crazy on you.  Don't believe me?  Try it.
  • I'm over protective and I get it honest.  Ever met my father?  It's not you that I don't's everyone :).
  • Molly has started gymnastics.  She LOVES IT.  I'm so glad we've done this for her.  She is also the youngest in her little class, and I'm so proud of her - she totally hangs with the 5 year old!  She must get it from her momma ;)
  • I'm pretty sure Madeline will be a long distance runner...if her constant motion and lap running around the house is any indication.
  • I've started the couch to 5K craze with my friend.  I kind of love it.  Even though my right hip stays so sore that I limp sometimes.  Getting old is pretty awesome.
  • Kids who sleep all night are awesome.  Sometimes, when I think maybe we should have one more...I think about sleep and being able to sleep all night.  
  • I still sometimes think we should have one more.  There are maternity clothes that I physically cannot part with.
  • I think my Mom would quit her babysitting job with me if I did.
  • Having a wood burning fireplace ROCKS.  I never knew how much I'd like that aspect of our new home!
  • I took Molly to a wedding in December.  I am not usually a dancer...especially without a cocktail in my hand.  Who knew being a parent made you not care how stupid you look?  Molly is still talking about it and asking to go to a "marry" again.  So fun.
  • We've started going to a new church.  I totally cried the first time we left the twins in the nursery.  They never even looked back.  Gotta love well adjusted second (and third!) borns.  I mean, they could have at least pretended they were gonna miss me, right??
I think I've exhausted my bullets...and my sarcasm for the night :).  Wow...two posts in one week.  I'm getting crazy.
