If a 9-year old boy says, “I was going to burp but I held it in,” don’t let him sit on your lap!

On the Royal Wedding…

Watching any kind of TV with two teenage girls is always an interesting experience, but the Royal Wedding between Kate and William was an especially enlightening experience.  As the formal part of the wedding wrapped up, the girls were shocked to realize that there were millions of people lining the street just to get a glimpse of the royal couple.

“So…like…those people stood outside waiting for hours?” asked Amber.

“Yeah,” responded Sarah.  “They had cake to motivate them.”

“Thanks,  Honey!”

In my house, everyone’s a clown and my home is a circus. The following is a true conversation I had with my husband recently.

“Honey,” I said, “the toilet won’t quit running no matter how much I jiggle.”

“Try jiggling the toilet instead,” he responded without missing a beat.

And Finally…


My 7-year old is a curious creature.  Some days I’d love to be able to peek inside his little head just to see what goes on in there…and then I realize that I really don’t want to know.  It’s too much fun to hear the crazy things that come out of his mouth!  A while back, I had put Braden to bed and had crawled in my own bed to sleep.  I was just on the verge of a good dream when I had the strangest feeling I was being watched. I opened my eyes to see that Braden’s nose was only inches from my own.

“What in the world are you doing?” I asked.

“I wanted to see what girls do at night,” he replied.

To all the ladies out there:  I did my best to represent us well!
