When you have six children, three pets and a family that puts the fun in dysfunctional, we have an easier time finding things to laugh at then in most cases to cry at. And as I say this, there are a few events I could think of this morning, when I retrieved my chance from the lovely Mrs B to post this blog. (thanks my dear friend, I needed some help today to get kickstarted on a blog lol) So off to this story.........First the politically incorrect one...

Last night, David my cute charismatic four year old walks in the room and announces in a frusturated tone "I cant find my balls" (he was refering to a Buzz Lightyear ball he has) being the silly goofy people we are this sent me and Stephanie (the 17 year old) over the edge.. I then said "Words you never want to hear from your son" of course we giggled more like school girls. We got over it went back to watching NCIS and a few minutes later he comes back in.. wearing underwear and a tshirt and announces loudly "I FOUND MY WOODY" (the cowboy from Toy Story) which of course made things worse.... so as you can see we arent always G rated but boy do we laugh.

Then... further on.. constantly we refer to AJ as a blonde in disguise as a redhead. He is a great sweet boy, but um.. hes a 75 watt bulb in a 100 watt world. Today is a snow day (ok all you people who are stuck in REAL snow.. let me tell you WHY this is so funny.... we don't have a flake of snow yet.. but we are closed.. we don't have anything other then the potential of snow coming.. so why are we closed? in anticipation of the snow that is possibly coming. um ok) Stephanie and Danny come dancing into my room at 7 AM, hooting and hollering about "Yes its a snow day!!" yes yes yes yes yes yes! Not two minutes later AJ walks in......."Am I closed too?" we had to explain if one school was closed they were all closed. he looks at me and says "well I didnt know if it was SNOWING at their school cause its not snowing at mine" lol.. sort of made me giggle.. hey look its the little things right?

And finally.. I am posting a story that happend to me a few months ago...I blogged about it, but my kids took a vote and decided if I was going to blog about them.. i had to blog about me. .ok I guess thats fair....

I got up at 3 AM to use the bathroom (note to self STOP drinking a bottle of water before bed), I didn't flip the light on because I knew how many steps it takes to get the potty.. thats right I got potty skills. I am taking care of business and out of the corner of my eye i see something about 2 inches long wiggling... i freaked "OMG we have mice!" I jumped up and start stomping on the mouse... i am stomping and stomping like some crazed lunatic.... yea.. then i realize i feel nothing crushing.....or scampering or anything... so i flip on the light...i had killed it.. it was murdered in my bathroom! Victory was mine.. that wad of toilet paper was never going to harm anyone again. Yep. thats right I am one lean mean TP killing machine..

Hope you got a giggle.. pray for me.. its a snow day.. 6 kids in the house.. this can't end well. lol.

The "snow day" thing is the most hilarious of all. :) We average more than 20 feet of snow a year, and this year is a record breaker. :)

I found your blog through the Riggs. :)
