For health class today, we were discussing attitudes between children and their parents.  We had to read a cartoon about a girl and her mother having a fight and then learned how they resolved their conflict.

I said to my girls… “I think it’s really great that I hardly ever have any conflict with you girls.  You always seem to do what you’re told and I never seem to have a problem with either one of you.”

Then I decided to ask them why they always behave so well.

Brianna said, “Because mom… we know better than to get you upset with us.”

I said, “Why, do a rule with an iron fist?”

Brianna said, “Yes mom, you really do, but at least you rule us with a cute, adorable, iron fist.

Such a sweet talker she is!  Lol…  😉

I was busy writing in my office tonight, when my little Auti charged through the door and announced that she had a huge surprise for me.  She proceeded to drag me out of my office, through the living room, and then stopped me right in front of my bedroom door.  I was told to shut my eyes, and was then led into my bedroom where our family computer resides.  I was finally told to open my eyes and have a peek.  This is what was on the computer screen, written just for me…

Dear mommy I love you and I want to say you’re the best I love you and you love me every day is the best with you and I think you think the same thing I hope you’re doing well so I love you hopefully you enjoyed reading this as I loved writing this have a wonderful night from: autumn ;-D

This was just the sweetest note I could ever receive!  I think perhaps we need to work on her punctuation a bit, but there was no way I was going to point that out when her big blue eyes were staring up at me, looking for approval.  She’s currently in my bedroom again, writing poetry and yelling for me to come and take a look.  So I mustn’t keep her waiting!  Sounds like it’s a Christmas poem this time!  Lol… 😉

In a recent conversation, my 16 yr old daughter said this…

“Mom, I’m such a weird teen.  Most kids my age are off partying, and here I am sitting here with you, pondering the philosophical meaning of life.”  

I almost died from laughing so hard.  Lol… 😉

I’m craving a hot drink right now and once and awhile I crave a stiff drink, and when a woman says something like this, you have to kind of wonder what she means by that.  😉

Sorry… it’s midnight.  I get silly this time of night.  Lol…

I saw this on a church sign a couple of months ago and thought it was quite funny.  The sign said…

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

I was thinking about the many ways this could be interpreted, and it’s still making me laugh.

light-2581929_960_720

At the dinner table, the question of the day was…

If you happened along a creepy tunnel, and you saw a light at the end of it, would you venture in further to investigate where the light was coming from?

Both of my girls said, that they would investigate the light, and I said I’d turn around and go back the way in which I came.  Brianna thought that was unwise, and said the place I came from was probably worse.  I said, “Well, I came from that place and survived, so it must not have been that bad.”  And yet she insisted that going towards the light in the creepy tunnel was still the better option.  Then at the last minute she added this… “Well mom, you’re forgetting… we all initially came from a creepy tunnel.”  I couldn’t help but bust out laughing.  The joke was totally lost on little Auti.  Thank goodness for that!

I must be really tired, as I nearly put toothpaste on my face.  But now that I think about it… I could have put cold cream on my toothbrush, and that would have been way worse!  😉  Nite all… ~M xo

I have no idea how we got on the subject of hair, but as we were all sitting around the dinner table, my sixteen-year-old daughter Brianna ran her hand through her hair and said, “Look, mom, my hair is as soft as butter.”  I gave her a nod of agreement but then nearly spit out my food as my nine-year-old daughter Autumn replied, “Well, that’s just because your hair is so greasy!”  Brianna and I both nearly peed our pants after hearing that one.  We must have all laughed for at least ten minutes.  Oh, the things that girl says!   😉

As my daughter was trying to lift a 30 lb bag of dog food, I said, “Okay muscles, think you can you handle that?”

She said, “Mom… you see these chicken bones? I’m surprised I can even support my own weight!”

An early morning conversation with my 8 year old daughter…

 

Autumn – “Hey mom, guess what!?”

Me – “What?”

Autumn – “I just made fresh eggs for breakfast!”

Me – “Oh?”

Autumn – “Yeah… wanna know how I know the eggs were fresh?”

Me – “Okay, tell me…”

Autumn – “Well, the carton says so!  See… right here.  It says Farm Fresh Eggs!”

Me – “Oh, is that so…”

Autumn – “Yeah, isn’t it great!”

 

I didn’t have the heart to tell her that those eggs had been in the fridge for at least two weeks… After all, the box said they were fresh!  Lol….
