Deep Thoughts...

"Cheez-its....addicting because the after taste is so bad, you MUST keep eating."

4 year old rules

Ethan: I only eat vegetables on Saturday.

Mom: Well then eat your broccoli.

Ethan: I only eat broccoli on Saturday.

Mom: Well then I guess you'll be eating an awful lot of vegetables and broccoli on Saturday.

Ethan: I actually won't be eating them THIS Saturday!

When you're not around

Do you know what goes on at your house when you're not there? I am certain things are much more fun and laid back when I'm not around.

"Dad lets us do what we want."

Like get dressed in whatever we want....even if it violates the school dress code. ( ie. flip flops)
Last week I picked up Ethan from school and about died laughing when he walked out. One of his teachers opened the car door and said, When Ethan came into class today, I turned to Miss Laura and said--I don't think Ethan's momma was home this mornin'."

Certainly not, and the next day we had to have a little sit down about why we couldn't wear flip flops to school-- and why Dad is so much more fun than Mom!

Why I haven't written

Because I have 3 kids. Because I work from home and have no daycare. Because it's soccer season and I'm a single Mom. Because it's April and I have a garden that is way bigger than my black thumb needs it to be...there's flowers to plant...and weeds to pull...and windows to wash (yeah right!)...and field trips...and dentists...and're getting bored and don't really care any more!

But.....I have a better excuse.
This is our backyard-- or was our backyard.

And our side yards (both of them) looked just about as bad. They were suppose to be seeded 5 years ago by the builder....and then three years ago we seeded again, and promptly started in on one of the worst droughts Georgia has seen. So, here we are again. This time to fix the problem for good--and thus I haven't written...because I'm doing all those other things I mentioned...and chasing water...and going to the nursery...and digging holes...and spreading mulch...and I'll post some pictures in a few days when I have something to show!

Holy Crap!

Did you know it costs about $400 to stick a hose in a cement box and suck poop out? Well if you didn't, you do now....and I'm guessing my "dirty" little thought made you smile this Monday!

Brownie points to the person who can give me the line from "Christmas Vacation."

Lil' Farmers

And... another wanna be gangster.

And... pigtails.

I may die of cuteness!

The aftermath

That darned Easter Bunny and his plastic grass is banned from our house....for at least a year.

....Oh, and here's the egg hunt...cause that's what the grandparents want to see....and because I've embarrassed my mother by exposing my messy house!
