Rock, Paper, Scissors...

Remember when I told you about the other night when Mr. and I played a rousing game of "rock, paper, scissors" to see who had to get an oh so messy Mini #2 out of the dinner chair after enchiladas?

He lost, but did I feel bad. No.

I get the priviledge of playing that game every day during the week when he is gone, 3 meals a day and somehow I ALWAYS lose and get the "winning" prize.

Seriously, this child makes a huge mess with toast. You name it and she can find a way to smash, smoosh, and DESTROY.

Last night it was bad, it was really bad. I even tried to bribe Mini #1 with some extra television time and some little pieces of heaven, otherwise known as M&M's, but he wasn't falling in to that trap. (I told you he was smart.)

This was the "tidy" princess after said meal served by yours truly. Be happy that you can't see the table and surrounding areas of her chair. There was food in her EARS. Aren't I lucky?

I needed to strip down before I tackled Hurricane Mini #2. (She is pretty darn cute though and clearly full of herself by that big grin when I asked her to smile before getting up.)

Thankfully many of her clothes can be bleached.

As messy as she is, she does LOVE shoes and handbags, so perhaps deep down, way deep down in there she is mine and doesn't truly hate me.

I've got my fingers crossed and will just have to keep smooching those cheeks in the meantime.

Have a great day.

Stand Back...

My computer is making those weird noises again. I know it has to do with the fan in my laptop, but I am hoping that it

A) continues to work
B) does not blow up
C) does not lift off and fly away
D) all of the above

(Definitely choose D).

I have been having "fan error" problems for a while, but fixing it will cost almost as much as a new laptop and that isn't working for me.

Most of the time, I can run the hair dryer to clean the fan out, jumpstart the little fan and workings inside, restart it and she works just fine. (I know this is not the ideal or the classiest way of doing things, but you gotta do what works.)

Every now and then, this morning being one of them, the little laptop lady is quite moody. It took a while to get her to start up this morning; perhaps "she" is having one of "those mornings" too.

Mini #1 just asked me "Mom, what is wrong with the computer?"

He's a smart little boy, so I think I am going to step away and let the little laptop lady take a nap and hopefully wake up in a better, much quieter mood.

Fingers crossed, please. Happy Tuesday!

I love my life.

I love the minis. They truly make my life better and amaze me each day.

Although at some point every day, I stop for a half-second and think "How did my life get to this point?"

It may be while cleaning up endless toys, tripping over a train, wiping bums, singing silly songs for the 4532 time that day.

I hear what some friends may be doing and let's just say that some days it is exactly a 180 degree different than what my day might entail. Not bad, just different.

I was thinking earlier about some of things I have said to the minis over the past 48 hours. Lines, thoughts, reprimands, suggestions, and ideas that I never thought I would say or dare have to repeat in my life.

For example:

"We do not play in the toilet."

"You cannot eat icing for dinner. Sugar is in fact not healthy."

"Toothpaste is for cleaning our teeth, not making a sculpture on the bathroom counter. You know that and now you get to help clean it up."

"That is the most beautiful octopus dinosaur train painting I have ever seen."

"Mommy's razor is not a shower toy. Please put it down now."

"Dirt doesn't belong in our mouth. It's dirty. Yuck."

A few minutes later "DIRT DOES NOT BELONG IN OUR MOUTH. NO! NO! NO!"

"No! Enchiladas don't belong in your hair. Try your mouth. You eat them, not play dress up." **
"How many times do I have to remind you that you must wipe your bum or ask for help after you poop?"

"I don't think it is a good idea to hang from the railing. Mommy is pretty sure that you aren't a monkey. Don't do it."

"If I break my neck on these cars on the floor they are getting taken away for good and you will be so sad." (Great line I know...I bet he sure was scared.)

Ahhh, my life as a mother. Always something to reflect on.

**You should have seen Mini #2 after the homemade enchilada dinner. I think we took pictures. No joke, Mr. and I played "Rock. Paper. Scissors." to see who had to get her out of the chair and take place of the disaster that she was. He lost. :)

Hope you had a great weekend. Happy Monday!

Just Give Me a Fluffy Tail...

And some whiskers and two long ears and call me the Easter Bunny.

Want to know what I spent 3 hours doing last night?

Stuffing 427 (no exaggeration and who's counting) little plastic eggs with trinkets and candy for our church's Easter Egg Hunt and Festival on Sunday.

Did you catch that 3 hours and 427 eggs? I told you I lived a glamorous life spending my evening doing such exciting things.

I would be perfectly happy to never see any more plastic eggs again, but since my children are still very little, we have 3 more egg hunts before Easter this year, I'll probably be asked to stuff eggs again next year for church, and since we have daily egg hunts around the house (Mini#1's new obsession...he better kick bum in the friendliest way possible at those egg hunts with all this practice) it looks like my perfect happiness is far from reality.

How many other cool people do you know could cut themselves on the finger with a plastic egg?

Aren't you thrilled to know me? Yes, yes I did do that. Sometimes those little suckers are tough to crack open. I used my massive strength to open one and crushed it, therefore cracking plastic and cutting my poor finger. Let that be an Easter safety lesson for us all.

Happy a great weekend!

OCD takeover

I am pretty sure that OCD may have taken over my 4 year old.

Yesterday morning, Mini #1 looks away from his breakfast by the window where the sun is beaming in and you can see those evil dust flecks floating around mocking us.

Mini #1 says "Mom, I hate dust."

I reply that yes, I indeed do as well.

A few minutes later he says again "This dust is making our house dirty. I really hate dust."

This boy gets me. I knew there was a reason or two why I loved him sooooo much.

Later in the afternoon, he is playing in his room where the sun has now shifted and is beaming through his bedroom dormer.

Mini #1: (yells downstairs) "Mom, I can't play like this."

Me: What's wrong?

Mini #1: "The dust is in my room now. I can see it. (then in a song) Dust, dust go away. You're making our house dirty."

Perhaps there is a Mommy and Me therapy session that we can go to together to work through our dust rage.

Dust, WE WILL WIN SOMEDAY! You may win a battle or two, but the war is mine (and now Mini #1's.)

Have a great day.

**I would like to point out that in case there are any new readers or people that skim over my OCD tendancies, I dust daily and can't stand it. You know the

Oh, Little Blue Engine

That little blue engine from the classic The Little Engine that Could pops in to my head quite frequently.

Mini #1 loves this story, you know the whole train obsession thing and we probably have about 5 various copies in our home. Mini #2 can even say Little Blue Engine's class line when I am reading.

You all know the drill: "I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can."

There are so many things that I think I can do or I need that extra little boost of encouragement from the train engine and passengers.

I think I can be nice to people even though they are blatantly rude and WRONG. I think I can resist the urge to climb through the computer and strangle them.

I think I can remember the saying "kill 'em with kindness." I think I can smile and say "have a good day" to the obnoxious man with a confederate flag in his yard, no shirt, and always spits off the rail of his trailer as I am delivering his meal for the day.

I think I can resist that chocolate and coffee until next Sunday. How many more days?

I think I can stand to sit and watch Kate Gosselin dance for at least one more week on "Dancing with the Stars."

I think I can remember that tomorrow I can try to be the BEST mom. (I think I can remember to say that tomorrow too.)

I think I can fold one more load of laundry.

I think I can I learn to say "no" when I am asked to do one more thing or at least I think I can go with less sleep because I am not very good at giving the negative answer.

I think I can remember that my children will not be this young forever. I think I can memorize every sill face, their lovely laugh, and their sweet hugs and kisses.

I think I can try to carve time out for me to do little things for myself like read a book. (gasp!)

I think I can make it through the teen years with my children. Although days like yesterday where 4 year old attitude was worse than 14 year olds, I'm not so sure.

I think I can...oh trust me, the list could go on and on.

What do you think you can do?

Happy Wednesday. Have a great day.

Dancing the Free Love

First of all, we need to get to the most important part of the day. You know my love affair with Starbucks and last week I expressed my newest love addiction in their vanilla bean mini scones . I brought Mini #2 down with me. Now I can bring you all down with me too.

TODAY until 10:30 am, you can get FREE PASTRY of choice when you purchase a drink. This is sure to get your day started off right. I am so sad that I cannot partake in this. Between getting Mini #1 to school and my Meals on Wheels route, I can't get there before they cut the goodness off for the day. I haven't broken the news to Mini #2 yet...she may not forgive me. Click here to print the coupon and get going to your nearest barista and think of me with any one of their fabulous yummies.

Moving on...who caught Dancing with the Stars last night? Another one of my love affairs. I am just not sure about this season and am still trying to put together my thoughts on it. This season is quite the Motley Crew, much more than usual.

I mean Kate Gosselin (think she needs to head on back to her brood of minis, but love me some Tony), Evan Lysacek (dancing on the ice), Erin Andrews (she is just so darn cute and quite a pair for the yummy Maksim), Jake the Bachelor (I just don't get it), Buzz Aldrin (adorable & brave old man), Chad Ochocinco (made up his own name...interesting?!?!?), Niecy Nash (oh so funny), Pam Anderson (ewww, but I so wish I had her legs), Shannen Doherty (dry up the tears, honey), Nicole Scherzinger (love her partner), and Aidan Turner (yum-o and funny).

Of course, in my head I could so totally do all of those dances, look fabulous in those skimpy sequins, and get those perfect 10s while giving some constructive criticism to my fellow stars.

Eventually, I do bounce back to reality and just enjoy watching it on television.

Happy Tuesday. Have a great day.

Talkin' About the Car Wash...

We want to raise responsible children.

Mr. is always quick to remind our children on how much they cost and that a good way to be responsible is to get a job and start contributing to the household expenses and repay some of the debt they have been accumulating since before birth.

Whenever Mr. asks Mini #1 "You know what you need?" Mini always answers "a job."

I mean they are cute and really smart. Cute+smart+funny+hardworking+mini size=Successful business

We went to visit my parents this weekend and on Friday, Mini #1 had the brilliant idea to start his own business. (He was really looking for a reason to play some more with the hose.)

He enlisted the help of his sister and these two were the perfect team.

I now present the Mini Car Wash.

First customer, his grandmother's car.

No detail was missed and the wash is a steal at this place. Aren't the workers just adorable. Mini #1 declared that his car washes would only cost $1.
That's right, $1. (Although heavy tips are certainly appreciated and accepted.) Mr. was thrilled with this business plan when he arrived and kept trying to get him to raise the prices, but the owner stood firm on this.
So, go ahead, line up and get yourselves to the car wash!
Happy Monday.

Snapshot Saturday~Beach Love


When the inlaws were here to visit recently, we were able to head to the beach for a bit. The weather was much warmer than we originally thought and there was much less rain-awesome and perfect!. My children love the beach...this was Mini #2's first trip and it really was a great time to go.

Mini #1 is also Master Kite Flyer!

Have a great weekend.

Overheard and Help

Mini #1's best friend Abby came over to play. The afternoon was full of bike riding, sidewalk chalking, crafting, snacking, playing, and giggles. They are cute together and have so much fun.
I was in Mini #2's room and overheard this little conversation:

Mini #1: "But I don't want to do that. "

Abby: "You need to listen to me. I am the girl."

Mini #1: "Ooooookkkkk" (with a sigh-that is is famous for saying to me) "I have to listen to my mom all of the time."

Poor little is starting already for him.

I would like to be able to replay that last line for him when he doesn't listen. He is such a comedian-"I have to listen to my mom all of the time." RIIIIIIIIGHT.
A friend from one of the groups that I belong to had their family home destroyed this week by fire. This is such a terrible thing, truly one of my worst nightmares and really makes you stop, take a minute to reflect, and be thankful. This family has three small children and are now trying to cope, figure things out and rebuild their lives. The cause of the fire is still unknown and they are staying with some family for the time being.
I have decided to donate ALL PROFITS FROM MOLLY LOU GIFTS to this family. Take a peek at the shop. We have some wonderful spring gifts perfect for Easter, Mother's Day, Graduations, Birthdays, etc. Think about getting some personalized stationery sets, plates for spring and summer eating, fun greeting cards (see next line), buckets and children's personalized shirts. We are also still running The Kiwi Tree Greeting Card-Buy 3, Get 1 free with free shipping special. Thanks so much for your support, thoughts, and prayers.

Happy Weekend.

I loathe you, I love you (hopefully)

loathing, hate, abhorrence, revulsion, disgust, resentment, extreme dislike, and intense distaste are just a few of the words that I have to describe


Ugh. How I (insert any of the above words) getting together and doing the family and business taxes.

Hopefully though, when I finish and see that Uncle Sam has a nice chunk of change to return to this family (fingers crossed, prayers said) I will have these words to describe TAX TIME:

lovely, beautiful, appealing, extreme like, delightful, giddy, excitement, splendid, wonderful, excellent, and ch-ching.

Again, fingers crossed, prayers said.

Have a great day.

Mud, Glorious Mud

You know me. Some of you know me well.

Getting dirty and playing in the mud would not appear on the top 1,000 things that I enjoy doing.

I am not ultra prissy, but mud and dirt are not my favorite things.
Picture it: beautiful, almost spring afternoon. The minis and I are having a lovely time frolicking around the yard. There is sidewalk chalk, matchbox cars, bikes, mini bikes, songs, and silliness. The minis start to play together *GASP* and I begin to weed the jungle that has become my beds in front.
I hear them talking and mini #2 laughing. About 15 minutes later, I come around to discover this is what is amusing the youngest monkey so well.

Now pan up to see the full version of the MUD MACHINE that is my daughter. She is soooooooo her father's child.

She HAD a bow in, but it was tossed neatly aside and now covered in the mud to match her attire.
She is always happiest when she is dirty. It's a good thing I saw her come from inside me or else I might think she was switched at birth.
Oh, Happy St. Patrick's Day! Enjoy the green!
PS-see what I mean about the baby leaving her so quickly? She is not a messy baby, but just a MESSY and MUDDY LITTLE GIRL!

I think the fever is coming...

Oh no. I think I am coming down with something.

I didn't want this to happen. At least not yet. It can't be happening now.

Last week my best friend found out she was pregnant.

This is such fantastic news. I am so thrilled for her and she will be the best mother. She is Mini #2's godmother and my children adore her.

I wanted her to take a test for a few days before she actually did, but she waited as she didn't want to be disappointed. Sure enough, I received the positive test text message picture and then the excited phone calls ensued. I can't wait to plan a shower and meet her perfect little one in the coming months.

Lately, I see babies and pregnant women everywhere. Blog friends are popping up pregnant left and right. I went to a baby shower this weekend for one of my college roomates that is expecting a little boy next month.

I never had this happen two minis just sort of happened. However, I am finally getting what others have said for years and it is hitting me.

It's hitting hard. I am getting the baby fever.

Yes, my fever is rising and I may be insane. I mean I have a 4 year old and an almost 18 month old, a husband that is gone all week working out of town, and 1267424 things that I feel overwhelmed with daily.

Oh, I can feel the baby cuddle and smell that sweet baby smell.

I see those baby days slipping away too quickly with Mini #2. She is such a little GIRL now. Don't even get me started on Mini #1...there is absolutely no trace of baby left in that little man. It is really amazing how much they seem to change daily and I spend every waking minute with them.

This is not a good time, especially financially. Mr. who was a driving force behind Mini #2 is not on board yet either, heck, some days I am not either.Ugh.

Hopefully, I can get rid of this fever for now and make it stay away for a while.

HELP!!! :) Have a great day!

Monday, March 15, 2010


I may have mentioned once or twice before that Mini #1 is oh so funny and quite smart.

And I may have mentioned once or twice before that he is a VERY picky eater. If the boy could live off of milk, pasta, chocolate chip muffins, vanilla yogurt, and grapes he would.

Last night at dinner, we had a homemade vegetable fried rice. Every night there are unique measures that we go through to try to get Mini #1 to eat his meal. Last night, without any coaxing, he ate some peas and then that was all he wanted to touch.

Three peas and he was finished.

I was explaining that he would like rice, kind of like pasta. Rice and pasta were like cousins and he would like it. We always go for the the "Look! Your little sister is eating her meal," but he never bites.

Then, last night Mr. ML lost his first battle to Mini #1 on pure smarts alone.

Mr.: "Billions of people can't be wrong. Everyone loves rice. Remember on the globe when we were talking about China and the continent of Asia. You know most Asian people eat rice everyday. You will like it."

Mini #1: "I tried the peas and I liked them. I don't want the rice."

Mr.:"Couldn't you just try it. I bet you would like it. Remember, rice and pasta are like cousins."

Mini #1: "No, thanks."

Mr.:"Come on, man, 2 billion Chinese people can't be wrong about rice. Try it and you will like it."

Mini #1: "Um, Dad, we don't live in Chinese."

(roars of laughter from me and copied by Mini #2. A deflated look takes over Mr.)

SCORE 1 for Mini #1 and 0 for Dad.

And no, he never ate his meal and all tactics were halted for the rest of the meal. :)

Have a great day!

PS-Did anyone watch Desperate Housewives last night and catch the "Holy Chaz Bono" line or the "You see, that is why I keep having children to replace the ones that hate me" line? Hilarious!!

Leave of Absence

I think I am going to take a small leave of absence.

Not a vacation, just a leave of absence for a few days.

Perhaps a mental vacation.

Don't do anything monumental without emailing me or telling me. Catch up soon!

Have a great week.

Love affair

My husband can have Costco or any other grocery store.

I have a new love affair.

Mini #2 shares this love affair. That's right, starting her off at a young age.

My love affair is with Starbucks (duh), but more specifically the new Vanilla Bean Mini scones.

Yummy, moist, almost bite-sized, vanilla-y goodness in a scone form.

Heaven in a little pastry. I daydream about them and always want more of them.

This is more than a love affair, I feel straight up addiction coming on.

(Don't worry, I am still on my Lenten coffee abstinence, I had a chai latte.)

Hope you had a great weekend. Have a great Monday.

Saturday, March 6, 2010

Snapshot Saturday

Mini #1 is becoming quite the photographer. I can't wait for him to become a world renowned photographer and take care of me.

He was playing with Mini #1 and kept trying to get her to pose and was saying "sit like this," "move like this," "wave and smile," etc. She wasn't having any of it and then kept grabbing for the camera saying "Mine." Perhaps he needs to look for a more willing subject.

Some of the "outtakes" he was taking of her were quite funny.

Have a great weekend.

It's Friday. It's random, really random. It's FRANDOM

I'm borrowing a line from one of my favorite blog friends that recently decided to stop her blog. I am still dealing with that. :)

1-Live with Regis and Kelly LEFT Mini #2 off of the Beautiful Baby Search. GASP! I know this must have been a HUGE error and I feel sorry for the employees that might lose their jobs over said oversight. Clearly my child is the cutest and most beautiful baby. Mini and I should totally be enjoying NYC right now. I would be showing Kelly Ripa how it was obvious that we were meant to be BFF and Mini #2 would doing her so darn cute thing and winning that big ol' prize money and soon to cover model.

2-I am loving the new Marriage Ref show. I believe that I might have an issue or two (or 12) to take to the Marriage Ref myself. Mr. is going down!!!

3-I hate laundry. I am pretty sure that I have mentioned this before, but I still have not received that magical fairy to help me with it. If only my children could wear the same thing everyday and sleep in it as well. I really need to work on that. I bet I could get some other moms and wives on board with this new trend as well.

4-Who else is excited about the Academy Awards on Sunday???? If you're not, then just pretend you are.

I am super excited and look forward to sporting my own designer gown down my own red carpet. The minis will be the paparazzi and journalists begging to talk to me and tell me how beautiful I look and how dazzling I was in my last movie. Mr. will present me with my Oscar. I will blush and make my way to the podium. I'll pretend that I had NO idea this was coming and will thank all those that helped me along the way and thank my family and friends for their love and eternal support.

Oh wait-snap back. And I'm back from my dream that I just had.

Have I ever mentioned that in my previous my life, I know that I was destined to either be royalty or a huge celebrity (the elegant one of course.) Now you know.

5-And my children are sick again. LOVELY and the doctor's office is just where I want to be this morning. We will be heading to the doctor again this morning to try a new/different medication. Yippee!

Have a great weekend.

What Does She Have that I Don't?

I haven't mentioned my husband's "other woman" before, but I guess it is time.

My husband has a serious love affair going on.

Some days I think he loves her more than me. Some days I know this is true.

Some days he swears he can stop and some days he knows that isn't true.

She is able to give him so much more than I am. She is everywhere and offers a place that he can spend hours enjoying himself and dreaming.

She feeds him and sometimes even clothes him.

She helps him plan a party, buy gifts, try new things, and over indulge in some of his most loved things.

When I go out of town, she is the first place he goes and doesn't seem to want to leave.

She is COSTCO (and any other grocery store really, but Costco is his best "she.")

I guess I know what she has and I don't. She is a warehouse filled with pounds and pounds of meat, 2 lb. bags of coffee, vegetable assortment, big aisles that beg you to roam them, yard "stuff," pizza, $.59 sodas, huge bags of chips, toilet paper to last years, and 102 different flat screen televisions right as you walk in.

Seriously, my husband has a love affair with Costco. He could spend hours in there and then gets a gleam in his eye when "she" is mentioned.

He gets really excited to go there and then downright giddy if I tell him he can go alone. (I usually have to set a timeframe if we are going as a family or else this one little trip could turn in to an all day affair.)

While I love the prices, Costco is not on my top 100 venues to hang out and I certainly don't sit around wishing to go to Costco. This was my husband's biggest con to moving to our new house-mine was Target and his proximity to his fave place.

The day the Costco coupon mailer comes in the mail is his favorite day of the month and if it arrives when he is away during the week, he doesn't like for me to open them.

I know this is unhealthy and he really should enter a 12 step program, but I am not sure he will ever "break the habit."

Perhaps one day, he will get that "glimmer" in his eyes when he thinks about me and not her.

"Oh the thinks you can think..."

Happy, Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

What a special day. Today marks his 106th birthday and children of all ages are so happy to celebrate his special day.

We can all recite various lines from Green Eggs and Ham or One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

Mini #1 is having a Dr. Seuss extravaganza at school today. They are dressing in red, white, and black, and getting to taste green eggs and ham. Each student is bringing in his/her favorite Dr. Seuss book and I cut out Dr. Seuss hat cut-outs for them to decorate to make their own hats. How cute they all will be!

I had a few extra so my minis made one at home yesterday so Mini #2 could get in on the fun too. Aren't they so cute?!?!
(Mini #2 was so darn tickled by the whole thing that she was just laughing away and it kept making her hat fall back. Her laugh reall is contagious...just look at that face. And yes, that is indeed black marker on her nose and on her shirt.)

Here are a few favorite Dr. Seuss quotes:

"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."

"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."

"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."

"And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed. "

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose. "

THANK YOU Dr. Seuss for being you, getting children excited to read, and for providing us with a lifetime of fun, funny, insightful, and educational quotes. Grab a Dr. Seuss book today and get lost in that magical and zany world.

You Might NOT Be...

in a good mood this fine almost spring morning if:

You got zero sleep last night because your children had issues and decided to need you all night.

Mini #2 started SCREAMING just before midnight and you know that I had just fallen in to slumber and about to dream about my model self laying on a beach with one of my crushes.

I rolled out to see what was wrong with my sweet girl that is normally an award winning sleeper. She didn't actually go back to a full sleep until after4:00 am.

I rocked her, couched cuddled with her, brought her to our bed, and then finally took her to Mini #1's bed (as he was on the couch or in my bed by this point.) I don't know what was wrong with her and I hope this was an isolated occassion.

Mini #1 woke up at some point during my house tour with the other one. He needed some hugs, a drink, and then said he couldn't sleep. He dozed on the couch and then went to sleep with his Daddy.

It's Monday, so that also means that Mr. leaves around 5 to drive the few hours to where he works and lives during the week. I got up to tell him goodbye and go over a few things. No coffee for him this morning.

So, friends, I think that I am going to pray that I get through this day awake and without doing something wrong with the excuse of sleep deprivation.

Happy Monday.
