a little this and a little

randomness….. complete with photos!  DE- lux edition.  Just for you.


  • we got a new playground.
  • it has swings.
  • I used to love the swings.
  • now, if I swing for more than a minute, I feel as though I will vomit.
  • Same with spinny rides.
  • If Michael merely LOOKS at a spinny ride, he may vomit.
  • so I am the official spinny ride parent.
  • pin a star on me.


  • but this little toot is the reason I keep swinging.
  • she loves to push me.
  • and watch me turn all shades of green.


  • did I tell you there's a rock wall on our new playground?
  • and that all my family loves climbing on it?
  • but that merely LOOKING at the rock wall may cause me to vomit.
  • _MG_0108 


  • She made it to the top
  • she always does
  • but look at that mom in the background.
  • turning 3 shades of pale.
  • and for Pete's sake
  • does anyone have the name of a great concealer for under eye circles?


  • aw schmoopies
  • they weren't fighting for a minute.
  • how did I get four kids?
  • and when did they get so big?  
  • seriously
  • And now I am crying.
  • seriously.


  • snow day
  • why do my kids always smile like this when they are having their photos taken?
  • don't they know their face might stick like that?


  • YIKERS.  
  • please say it ain't so….


  • that's more like it.


  • this one takes after his father.
  • in many ways.
  • his good looks for one.
  • his ability to make goofy faces.
  • his overacting
  • wait
  • that might be from someone else.


  • uh oh
  • that face freezing virus 
  • this little girl loves chocolate
  • she gets that from her daddy
  • I don't like chocolate.
  • doesn't quite explain why I ate 4 brownies yesterday.
  • just sayin.

  • yeah, she ate one bite
  • and then said "blech"
  • and then she ate 25 oranges.


  • this one doesn't like to have his picture taken
  • well, at least not with a bird.

  1. If it makes you feel better, they made me tear up too. And. If you get that under-eye-concealor product name, please let me know.
