Pancake Hair

So Eden, my daughter, wants to cut her hair to her shoulders. While we were on a walk I asked her if she was sure and why she wanted to cut her hair and she simply said ” because then when I turn to talk to someone when I’m eating pancakes, my hair won’t get all sticky and syrupy from touching my plate.” 8 year old logic at its finest.

If only it were that simple!

So my 18 year old daughter has moved into her very first apartment.  The first one of the bunch to be living on her own.

She is on her own despite my encouraging her not to….encouraging her to wait….encouraging her to attain the finer things while living at home…..but to no avail.

Why is it so challenging for us to remember what it was like to be young and eager to be independent?  Is it because we have faced and long forgotten the misery and joys that come with first apartments? The good old days of eating Ramen noodles every night because it’s all you could afford?  I was so excited to be on my own for the first time that my room mate and I Continue reading

Baking?? Who am I??

I don’t know what’s come over me but I think I have a problem, a big problem.

I have been baking.  Seriously.  I’m not kidding.  BAKING!  And some serious baking.

I saw some browning bananas the other day and normally I would wait another day or 2 to see if anyone puts them to use and if not I throw them into the freezer until the next 6 month bug I get to make my go to banana bread.  But no, not this past week, I saw them and thought, Hmmm I can make a banana cream cheese pie or a banana cream pie, I do after all have 2 graham cracker pie shells in the cupboard that have been there for quite some time…

Image

I even looked on line for a banana cream pie/pudding/cheese cake recipe, I even checked if I had the ingredients and I made a list to pick up the missing ingredients I was missing during the next visit to the grocery store. *gasp*

Who am I??

Has my Mr. been slipping some herbal substance that causes increased domestication into my tea?  When it comes to the possibility of him getting more sweets and baking in the home, I wouldn’t put it past him…

Bickering

Do your children bicker?

Good Lord, help me.  Mine do.  And I know, I know all kids do.  Especially when there are three children in very close age proximity. (been there, done that, this is my second ‘batch’ of them)

But sometimes I am absolutely dumbfounded about the petty (to me) things that my children choose to bicker about.

How do you feel about this idea?

Oh, imagine the possibilities…
XBOX-2/PS3-4/Wii-U plugs, laptop/computer/ipad/ipod/phone chargers/power cords
even hair straighteners and blow dryers, heck even the entire TV!

Is it wrong of me to be excited to see this plan in action and the reaction it will get?

Let your creative ‘fruit’ juices flow…

So I think I’ve hit the jack pot here.

I have been searching far and wide for the right opportunity to score major Mommy of the Year points with my little ones (yes, I want to make my children happy…) and I know, that I have found a winner!  My daughter will go absolutely nuts if I present her an orange shaped like this…..

We will be having major  quantities of fresh squeezed fruit juices and fruit salad over the next few days while I attempt to create even some kind of semblance to a cat, which is highly unlikely but I’m sure I will score even more Mommy of the Year points (in my own mind anyway) for even attempting this….
