Oh and Favorite Foto Friday

AC playing outside--crazy hair day and NOTE what the shirt says...
VERY important!

This is what I get..........

So it's official I am done, finito, gone with the wind, adios.....c-ya....I'm outta here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I was up late last night, what's new, up late most nights. Anyway, apparently last night was the end {usually there is finally a day that my body says nope you've done it---it's over--time to rest} Well today must have been THAT day because...... With Jake safely at school, Alaina Claire safely in her bed napping----Will asked to watch a Barney video {I know there are so many things to say here so just refrain....thanks!} So I obliged. I put in the video and he started watching it. Of course he wanted me to sit on the couch with him so he could sit in my lap to watch not like I could get up and get something done. Next thing I know I hear the menu music playing over and over again......what?! huh?! oh $@#%! I fell asleep. Now mind you it only had to have been for about 10 minutes and I vaguely remember Will sitting there turning the pages to a book and then get up {I wasn't completely out....but then again I was....know what I mean?} He got up---that is the important part to this story.

SOOOOO when I finally had my "oh my gosh!" moment. I jumped straight up off the couch and ran to see where he was and I walk into the kitchen/dining area to find THIS................

{don't look at the horrible wood paneling we have yet to replace since we moved in FIVE years ago....I know!}

This would be the ENTIRE 5lb bag of sugar that Daddy made sure to get at the store last night because we haven't been able to make Tea for a week and he is going into what was it that you wanted when you got home today dear?? milk? water? apple juice? good

So my friends it is with much grief and exhaustion that I bid you adieu. It's just not in me. I don't have one more "able to handle Will" bone left in my body. He's done it.....he won and he is ONLY 2 1/2. Yep....that's it. If you want to contact me from here on out feel new address is:

Thanks for visiting!

PS if you are new and/or think I am weak or exaggerating or just plain weird---I encourage you to visit this post and this post and this post and this post.

Cool Tidbit from the weekend.....

I'll start with.....It's all in who ya know! Apparently I know the right people because I know HER and HER and lucky me they are two of my closest friends. Because of this friendship I got to be their moral support this past Sunday morning for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Why is this important you ask?????

Well let me tell you.......because we got to meet The Nester and her sister Emily !!! WOW! I know right?? {now for those of you who don't blog you're going...what the heck?!} I would encourage you to go visit them if you haven't ever because they both have super cool blogs......very different but super cool nonetheless.

Me, M, Emily, the Nester, Kim

They were in town this past weekend for a Blog conference you can read about it HERE on the Nester's blog. Kim arranged breakfast for us the morning they were heading out of town. BOY am I glad I went. Those girls are awesome and we ALL had a blast. We talked like we had known each other for years and years. OF COURSE, I must put a disclaimer in here that if any of you know Kim Wheeler in person, it's REAL HARD not to talk to her like you have known her for years even if you just met......she is that kind of person. hee hee

So with lots of bacon to be had, grits overflowing, bloggy questions asked and answered, mommy questions answered and photos in front of the prison fence we had a blast!

Hopefully we can do it again soon, ladies!!

Abducted by Aliens

You see I have this THEORY that everyone in my house has been abducted by aliens. Too many strange things going on around here that wouldn't happen in MY house. For instance..........

SCHOOL PICTURES---this picture turned out to be a half way decent pic of all of my children--minus the always bright blue background--and it was a SCHOOL picture!! Mother's Day Out actually. {at MY house school pictures would have turned out crappy and all of my children looking at once...doesn't happen}

My OLDEST son is going to PreK and loving it---every morning if he drags I threaten for him to NOT go to school and he gets right up and gets dressed. {you see in MY house he would whine and fuss all the way to school--mother's day out--once he got there he had a blast but the getting there was annoying} He even fusses when we don't have school like today because it is Fall Break. {in MY house we would be jumping for joy and counting all the "shows" we would get to watch on TV}

AND My oldest child is getting so tall it is hard to hold him all at once anymore......{in my house he is still my baby that I can rock whenever I want} He draws pictures of himself, sounds out words, sings a blue million songs I've never heard, greets several teachers he sees at school each morning by name and will carry on a conversation with you for as long as you feel like talking {in my house he doesn't want to draw, is shy with adults and refuses to talk when you try to talk to him}

My MIDDLE child is attempting to be more loving to his sister. Will sit with his brother and watch part of a tv show with him on the couch. AND has ASKED to watch a movie and then sat and watched the whole thing---people I'll take what I can get---that was 2 1/2 years coming to get him to sit at the tv for more than 2 minutes---call me what you want aliens or no---mama needs a break and after 2 1/2 years a couple hours in front of the TV for the VERY FIRST TIME isn't gonna hurt!!! {in MY house he looks at the tv with absolutely no interest at all and goes back to beating on his little sister which appears to be much more fun}

AND my middle child counts to 10, says his ABC's, loves to color, will sit down to do arts and crafts for as long as you will sit there with him, loves music and talks up a storm where you can actually understand what he is saying---most of the time. {in MY house he is just too busy getting into everything to be interested in doing any one thing at all and when he talks you just nod because who knows what he is saying}

My BABY GIRL is walking--more like running, has cut her first tooth, plays with her brothers for a good bit of time, takes a bath in the big tub, loves to be chased, can play independently for as long as you let her and has the most hysterical personality and oh yes a temper. {in MY house she was just sitting up much less crawling and definitely not walking, had no teeth and gummed everything to death, would just sit and watch her brothers but not dare intervene. In MY house she wouldn't scream/screech/squeal at the highest decibel the INSTANT she didn't get her way because she knows it gets attention--not in MY house}

My HUBBY comes home from work at the same time every day with plenty of time to have supper, play with the kids, do bathtime and then bedtime---all of that uninterrupted by work. {in MY house he has to stay late 2-3 out of 5 nights of the week and when he is home work calls each night for direction on something and weekends would involve going in--that's what happens in MY house}

ME--I have been actually going to bed at night instead of blogging--obviously, cleaning, laundry or dishes---UGH not that THIS is a good thing. {in MY house sleep was overrated and the only time things got done is the middle of the night} As of late it seems I have no choice---sleep overtakes me--it is all catching up with me---or aliens need more sleep. ha!

Last but NOT least and the reason I KNOW the aliens are here---the Vanderbilt Commodores are 5-1 on their season this year....... I said 5-1!! That means they have WON 5 games and only lost 1 game. They are ranked in the Top 25--#22 to be exact and are 3-1 in the SEC. {in MY house Vandy would be 0-6 and have pipe dreams of the Top 25 and be DEAD last in the SEC}
GO VANDY!!!!!!!

As it appears the aliens have taken over and so many changes have taken place in our house. I couldn't even pinpoint the time for you when it all happened---things just have a way of getting away from you. Time gets away from you. Before you know it----it is Halloween and you are shopping for Christmas presents because Christmas is just 69 days away and before that your baby girl turns ONE!! AAAAGGGHH!! Go AWAY aliens GO AWAY---I want MY house back---let me enjoy things the way they used to be for a little bit longer.....just a little!
