Some Funnies….

20 11 2009

I think everyone needs a laugh sometimes….so hopefully these will give you one today ūüôā

Grace and Isaac were doing school time and we were learning about ocean currents.¬† I asked a question to the kids and Isaac gave the correct answer.¬† Grace was upset she didn’t answer quick enough and her answer wasn’t right so she said….

Mom, I said it you just didn’t understand because I said it in Spanish.¬† I almost fell off the chair I was laughing so hard.

Today Owen was playing with his baby doll.¬† He lifted his shirt and started to feed it.¬† Dave and I started to laugh, so he gave me the doll and said…..

Here mommy milk.¬† He wanted me to feed the baby, like I don’t nurse enough as it is ūüôā

Here is another from Grace.¬† I came down in the basement and found Grace in a big Rubbermaid container (clear) with the lid on (yes, I went¬† nuts, because children can die like this, and yes Dave has already put holes in all our bins).¬† I opened the lid and said…Grace you can die from this.¬† Don’t ever get in one of these bins again.¬† She looks and me and says….You don’t want your only daughter to die?¬† I had to hid my face from laughing…I then responded, “No, Grace I don’t want any of my children to die, it isn’t like I can spare a boy around here!”

I hope you had a smile on your face reading these!¬† Have a great weekend! ūüôā

Homeschool FUN!!!

14 04 2009

Okay, maybe I am the only mom out there that worries her kids are going to wish they weren’t homeschooled.¬† I want to my kids to LOVE learning, Love reading and love just being kids.¬† ( FYI these are not in order or¬†are they the three most important things to me consering my children, they are just three of many things).

So after thinking about these things the last few nights I got some crazy ideas in my head for FUN school days.¬† Now everyday should be somewhat fun, but I am looking for crazy fun days….ones that don’t happen often.

Do you remember being a child and waking up to hear “SNOW DAY”¬† Woo Hoo, my blood would get going, I couldn’t wait to get up and do….well, kid stuff.¬† No plans that day, just a day off to have FUN.¬† My mom ran a daycare in our home so there were always fun little babies to help with and feed (my favorite pass time as a child, could be why we are on our 4th baby in 5 years) ūüôā¬† I loved those days……I would watch the news the night before praying we would get hit with the 8-14 inches of snow during the night, just to experience those “SNOW DAYS”.

Well, as a homeschooler, you don’t really have snow days.¬† You don’t have to leave for school so you just continue school.¬† Now, you could take the day off, but it just isn’t the same to me… we have started a new day in our home.¬† One of the days for us a “SUN DAY”.¬† Do you get it? Mommy can randomly pick 4 days during the year to have a “SUN DAY”¬† The kids aren’t to know this day is coming….they wake up to hear “SUN DAY”.¬† Grab your bathing suits or shorts and lets spend the entire day just hanging outside and enjoying the sunshine!¬† While the other kids are in school we get to spend it doing just FUN stuff.¬† No plans, just fun.¬† Okay, maybe it is over the top, w hat do you think?

Then I started to think….how about Pajama day?¬† Now, many of you may school in your P.J’s already….we don’t.¬† So for us this would be a fun day!

How about opposite day….you know, breakfast for lunch and lunch for dinner?¬† Wear your clothes backwards etc.¬†¬† Silly kid stuff.

Now, please let me know if I have lost it!  If you think this is fun, please add your ideas!!!!  I want to have a fun day at least once a month to every other week next school year.  Thanks everyone.

I really didn’t want to….

Go and buy a new washing machine tomorrow morning (before 10 am, because then Dave has to go to work).  I feel TOTALLY unprepared!  We like to shop after we have read everything, thought it out etc.  I feel like I am trying to do a rush buy on a machine that I will have in my home for at least the next 10 years and it is something I will use everyday of those 10 years!

Don’t you think my washing machine should have given me some notice that it was going to break down with a full load of clothes in it that have not be spun yet?

I don’t even want to think about how I am going to get the clothes out and cleaned before they mold!!!!

A Funny Little Email

I am not one that post emails or forwards often…but this one is great!¬† For all the dads out there…enjoy.¬† Mamas you will get¬†a kick out of this as well!


Subject: RE: Only from a mom

A man came home from work and found his three children
 outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food
boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

¬†The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the¬†
house and there was no sign of the dog.
 Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had 
been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.
 In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a Cartoon channel, and 
the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

 In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled 
on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled 
on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile 
of sand was spread by the back door.
 He quickly headed up the stair s, stepping over toys and more piles 
of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, 
or that something serious had happened.

 He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the 
bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap 
and more toys strewn over the floor.
 Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared 
over the mirror and walls.
 As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in 
the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him,
smiled, and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’

She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come¬†
home from work and you ask me what I do all day?’

¬†‘Yes,’ was his incredulous reply.

¬†She an answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it.’

A Little Seminary Humor

A friend just emailed this to me….I think you may think it is pretty funny.¬† Dave and I were laughing about it…..hopefully I am never one of those sitting in the front row on the verge of tears.
