Not me monday

A few things me and the fam did not do...
I DID NOT get the worst ear infection i had in years last week. I DID NOT have a ruptured ear drum and two ear infections with a sinus infection.

Sofia DID NOT randomly say on the way home from church, "i do like like broccoli, mom. Just so you know." I'm sure there was thought behind that, but its unclear to me.
We DID NOT have jada's 6th bday rockstar party saturday. There was NOT mommy juice for the adults so the 15 kids could be in check during karaoke and dancing and tattoos.
Brook DID NOT take an AR test for a book shes been reading and score 100%! It is not amazing to see her finally succeed at something in school and be just like the other kids.
Sofia did NOT pray this week in the car, "dear lord, thank u for basketball. And for yummy food and sometimes the rain. Amen". Brooke: "would u look at the size of that weiner?" Jada: "did u say weiner?" Brooke: "yep! That weiner dog is …

Sometimes you just...

Sometimes you just need starbucks...
I have a double ear infection, sinus infection and well, I am just plain exhausted.
Sofia on the other hand, she's just always in need of sweets...
So sometimes you just need a little starbucks to make it. Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7

Spring...or not

Don't you just want to go down the swirly slide so you can find this joy?Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7

the real house...the real win.

i'm not sure if it's the long winter or that there's just 6 of us in this house, but it's a flipping mess...always!
i get frustrated when i look around...bc as soon as i clean up, there's another mess.  i mean, i have some really awesome "helpers"...but as you can see, there's some ba-junk-da-junk that could use a cleaning up.
i'm having a hard time this morning being really upset about it...because i'm rejoicing in finding my "fountains" or strength in what matters.  passion 2011 rocked my i mean, rocked my world...and the CD just released {with me singing off key in the crowd} and i'm praising God along with Chris Tomlin and 3000 other peeps to "all my fountains"...and i'm feeling the joy, man.

and then i turn around and i see the world i live in.  i mean, that's hard for me in the midst of this...
and this...
but in the end, what matters?  i'm really trying hard to keep that focus...ministry of…

My girls are all readers...and the tag readers are so amazing.
I didn't fall for them bc of the cost, but nana did, and boy am I glad. It reads and has music and sound effects...even when u hear it repeated 46 times in a row.
And aren't they cute while they are getting smart? Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7


I was feeling not so perfect yesterday and was chilling out when sofia walks up and kisses me.
Sofia turns and looks back and says, "well shoot. I guess we're married ." Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7

Coffee and babies

Sof tells me this morning she was "heading out for a bit". She strolls back to the kitchen, coat on, sippy cup in hand, baby in the stroller.
I ask "where are you headed?"
"I got my starbucks, and boy is this coffe good. Now i'm walking my baby and drinking good coffee. Its a very good morning!"
Well, who knew shw watched every detail so closely. Can you say "mini me?" Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7

not me monday

a few things that me and the fam DID NOT do this week...
sofia DID NOT come into our bedroom after being "asleep" for about an hour saying, "oh my goodness. i was totally asleep and a big tiger came into my room and licked me all over my face.  it totally waked-ed me up. sorry, mom." i DID NOT get one of the worst flu's in the world and have to stop roadside to puke on the way home from preschool pick up.
while we were eating dinner out thursday night, brooke DID NOT pull a colored pencil out of her boot when someone requested a color that was not part of the "coloring pack" at red robin. i DID NOT have to report to jury duty this week and was NOT the only person there thrilled to be sitting in a quiet room where no one was asking me to wipe their butt, make them lunch or answer the same question 50 times.  i was NOT totally sad to get released from the jury pool...but was NOT instantly happy again thinking i was NOT able to get a hair cut bc child care w…
