Hey mom, I learned a new song today!

I'm so glad my child is getting a top notch education at school.....

Kennedy: "Hey mom, I learned a new song today at school. Do you want to hear it?"

Me: "Sure Ken, sing it for me."

Kennedy: "Ok, It goes a little something like this.....

Bang, Bang choo choo train, let me see ya work that thang. Uh Huh!"

(Inappropriate dance moves accompany the song)

My jaw hits the floor. HARD.

Me: "Um......yeah. Maybe we shouldn't sing that one anymore."

Kennedy: "Why?"

Me: "Inappropriate Kennedy, inappropriate."

Kennedy: " But mom...."

Me: "Inappropriate."

Kennedy: "awe, Mom."

I'm struggling to keep a straight face during this little episode. I manage to keep it together long enough for her to leave the room. Then, I lost it.

I need a pair of those....

I know. Not appropriate right? I'm sorry, I couldn't think of a better title.

Kennedy spent the day with my mom on Friday. She decided that her, my mom, and Madison (my niece) needed to have a picnic. She went inside, made "sandwiches" ( I couldn't tell you what they really were, that's just what she called them) pack some miscellaneous other things, got a blanket, and set up shop outside.

So, my mom, Kennedy, and my niece all go outside and begin to eat their lunch. Kennedy sits there for a few minutes and then looks over at my mother. My mom is sitting there in her normal everyday getup, a tanktop and shorts. Kennedy begins to speak.....

"Nana, (as she cups and pretends to lift her non existent boobs) I think I would look so much better if I just had a pair of boobs"

I think my mom had a mild stroke. Do you think I should be concerned?????

Kennedy, please go clean your closet.

Kids are so cleaver.

I asked Kennedy to please go clean her closet today. I thought I explained it in great detail. I said "Kennedy, please go clean your closet. I want you to organize your dresser drawers and hang up all clothes you can. I don't want to see ANYTHING on top of your dresser".

Pretty clear right? I thought so too.

As I'm getting the house ready for bible study, I noticed she has made about 20 trips up and down the stairs. I'm not REALLY paying attention to what she is doing.

About 2 hours later, I realize Kennedy is just hanging out in the living room, just watching some t.v. So I ask her "Is your room ALL READY for people to come over? Did you make your bed, pick up your room and CLEAN YOUR CLOSET??"

"Yes ma'm!" she replies. I say in return, "If I go up there right now, everything is done right? Because if it's not....." She again replies "Yes ma'am! It's all done!"

Ok, I think, I'm going up there to investigate. I march up the stairs and much to my surprise, it's done! "Kennedy!" I shout, "you did such a great job! I'm so proud of you" (Big Hug)

Fast forward.....Everyone left after bible study and I go back to chores. Cleaning the kitchen and whatnot. I go to open the laundry room door and literally an AVALANCHE of clothes bombard me. WHAT THE HECK?????!!!!!!!

"KENNEDY!!!!!!!!!" I shout with much enthusiasm. "Why are all of your clothes in the laundry room???? Are they really dirty or were you just too lazy to put them away???"

"Mom, you said to hang up all the clothes that I could and make sure there weren't any on top of my dresser" (I am well aware of the instructions given).

I know Kennedy. So why are all the rest of them down here????

"Well, I picked up a shirt and it smelled bad, and that shirt was touching all the others so I thought it would make them smell bad too. So, I brought them all down. I didn't want to wear smelly clothes".

Ahh, what a cleaver girl. (I have no response.)

So it is now 10:30 and I am still washing her "smelly clothes". I will be sure to be more specific in the future.

My Saturday thus far.

What a weekend it has been so far. My little niece Maddie spent the night with us last night. Which really wasn't all that bad. I managed to postpone bringing her and Kennedy home until about 10pm. (Sorry Mom!) We went upstairs, blew up the air mattress, made the bed, and they climbed in. I came back downstairs and did a whole lot of nothing and Jeff went off to bed. They girls did surprisingly well. They whispered and giggled until about 11:30 then fell FAST asleep. NICE I think to myself. Now I can go to bed. So I get up, take my new meds (I'm not crazy, I have a sinus infection). One of which is an inhaler. Now, I'm a little sceptical on this one. I've not "inhaled" (I heard you laugh) anything that was prescribed before. (That really sounds alot worse than I meant it to).

ANYWAY so I do what the pharmacist told/mimed me to to. I couldn't really understand him. I was in the oh so inconvenient drive thru.

1. Shake it, check,

2. put it in the other thing, check,

3. press once and inhale, check,

4. EXHALE EXHALE!!!! Right, check. and repeat.

Piece of cake right? Oh, what was that Mr Pharmacicst? Don't take it before bed? Why? OH right..... It simulated being on CRACK!!!!

I am not even kidding. Did you ever see there's something about Mary? Magda cleaning? That was me...last night until oh, say 3AM. That alarm was like music to my ears this morning (right...). So was the enthralling phone call from my corporate office.

Moving on to the rest of my day. I had BOTH girls ALL DAY. Love 'em, just not that much. ONLY KIDDING!!! We had a great time. A couple of "She's drinking all the coke!" and "She's on my side mom" but we made thru seemingly unscathed. Thank goodness I had my new inhaler. I would have NEVER mad it thru the day!

So Here I am

Well, I can honestly say I'm a terrible writer. I seem to just ramble on and on, usually about nothing at all. You'd think I have WAY too much time on my hands.
So, here we go. A little about me. I'm in my late twenties (not thirty yet!), I'm a wife, a mother, a christian, and the princess of all things pork.
I have been married to my very best friend for 9 years and have an awesome kiddo named Kennedy. We just bought our dream house a.k.a "The Money Pit". But I love it. We've also started hosting a weekly bible study at our house. (Which is totally awesome I might add!)
I've lived in the same town for 20 years and man has it changed! That is a total thanks to the retail monster Wal-Mart.
So I pretty much just do the SAME THING EVERYDAY. But that's ok. I think by nature we are creatures of habit. Consistency it good, right? I know one day something absolutely fabulous will land in my lap. Maybe I'll win a trip to Europe....Hmmmm.

Until that day comes, I just keep on pluggin' along. Doing my thang day to day. Trying to talk the talk AND walk the walk. But I'll keep you posted along the journey. Stayed tuned...It's bound to be entertaining!
