Conversations with Colin

No embellishments, exaggerations, or flat out lies are part of this tidbit. AKA my children are a product of well, me.

Colin: Mom there is something coming through my gum

Mom: Oh awesome Col, its your tooth. AT LAST!!!!

Colin: (nodding his head) Totally. Mom You’re the best

Mom: Thanks Colin. I really do try.

Colin: I see the effort. Good job Mom.

Mom: I would like to also thank the academy, naps, snacks….

Colin: Mom…its just a tooth

Moment…..ruined.

Tomorrow he will hate me and tell me I’m mean, but I’m taking this moment! Even if its JUST a tooth.

Ode to my Snoring Husband

Oh Husband, I really do adore you.

The way you play with the kids, say you love me

well it really does make my heart sing.

What doesn’t make my heart go pitter patter  however

is,

your snoring

Your snoring my dear, sounds like a chainsaw….in my ear

A snarling, grinding, snorting, god awful sound does come from your face

And now I sit up thinking about it

  to my dismay.

For years you denied it,

claimed “honey you’re lying”

No, no my darling you were only in denial.

For I hear your concert every night like a snoring recital

A new pillow we tried

Snore strips as well

I resorted to earplugs, but those are annoying if you could not tell

Permanent dark circles under my eyes

a Zombie Mom I’ll be.

To put up with your snoring,

oh woe is me.

So here I am typing this precious ode to you.

To you, snoring dear husband and how it makes me want to shank you.

*finger snaps*

Tooth Fairy Shenanigans

Last night, Colin lost his 8th tooth. It was a marvel to behold! Not the tooth, the gaping hole of the eight teeth that have left his mouth. I don’t even know how he eats sometimes. There really is nothing quite like the awkward stage of your child appearing to have had one too many Mountain Dew’s. Well, even though we don’t drink Mountain Dew. You get the point!

Well, in the mean time Alex was just in a whirlwind of excitement. He was grabbing tissues and asking to hold the tooth.  As he was jumping up and down, I found it completely adorable that he was happy for his big brother. Who wouldn’t, right?

As the excitement was winding down, I noticed Alex scribbling at the coffee table. When I asked what he was doing he replied, “I’m making a card for the Tooth Fairy!” Adorable! I was laughing and told him, ok, but he needed to hurry up. It was bed time after all!

Later, I carried through with my magical tooth fairy duties, and slipped the dollar under Colin’s pillow. Alex was sleeping in Colin’s bed, again. There was no doubt in my mind that he was there for the excitement of the Tooth Fairy.

Fast forward to this morning and waking the boys up. Colin was beaming from ear to ear when he found his loot. Once he was done staring at his dollar he asked, “what about Alex?” Um, what now? Alex popped up and felt around under his pillow and pulls out this piece of paper:

Holy freaking shenanigans. This cute card that my adorable child was “making” was a money demand?! Good lord. My reaction:

thats not how

So Alex has learned his lesson. He realized the tooth fairy does not bring money upon demand, and he will need to wait until he loses a tooth.   It should be noted that Alex hates writing. Even though he is doing well with his letters in school, work like this is um, well, like pulling teeth. Pun completely intended. So kudos for his effort into his demand letter!

Anyone else have a good Tooth Fairy Story out there?

Your Lips are Moving

I have been loving these Mom parody videos lately. To me, no one does them better than Deva from Mylifesuckers.com.  Her videos seem to always hit home for me, with a pretty humorous tone.

The latest video is to Meghan Trainor’s “Lips are moving”. How true is this video for us Moms!? I have felt like I have had to repeat everything lately. They have managed the fine art of tuning me out.

Yesterday my neighbor was over with her daughter. When we went to give them a 5 minute warning for clean up, they didn’t respond. We yelled upstairs, whistled, made all sorts of noises, and folks we got not a single response. Ironically I turned to my neighbor and said, “my lips are moving, right?” We both laughed about it and headed upstairs to round up the scoundrels.

Here’s the video,and I hope you enjoy Deva as much as I do!
