More Mouths Of Babes

Oh, the things kids say...
Last night, as K was choosing her ice cream flavor, she told her daddy she like "Moose Crack".  Now, I'm not sure if she's talking about the addictive powers of chocolate and peanut butter cups, or..... maybe we'll never know!
We have been discussing the weather a lot, with the arrival of Hurricane Irene.  We've talked about how hurricanes spawn tornadoes.  Will informs us that although hurricane winds will knock you down, tornadoes will "KNOCK YOU UP"!
Oh my, what am I going to to with these two?  They definitely bring a lot of laughter into our lives!

A Better Day

Today was a much better day.  I didn't lose my cool  I stayed calm.  I handled things as they came.  Thank you to all who prayed.  I appreciate it more than you will ever know!

Why Does Satan Attack On Wednesday?

Wednesday.  Hump Day.  Middle of the week.  Fall church activities start soon.  At work, it's Cheesy Bacon Burger Day.  Who could have a bad day on CBB day?
Apparently I can.
Why does Satan seem to start hurl his darts my way on Wednesday?
Why do my children choose Wednesday to irk my nerves?
Tonight I feel like a failure of a mother.  I do.
I got into a power struggle with my dear daughter, and she  won!
I totally flew off the handle.
Sometimes I wonder if the reason we were childless for so long is because God knew I'd be a horrible mother?  Maybe I'm not meant to handle this.
So frustrating...
hopefully Thursday will be better...

Saturday At Last!

I am pleased to announce that the Fabulous McKFour is having a wonderfully lazy Saturday!  We have been going and going and going non stop, and now, it's time for a little "at home" time.  Well, we do have to run out to finish school supply shopping (UGH- I dread doing this on Tax Free weekend, but hey, a girl's gotta get a deal!) and some other putzing around, but otherwise, we have an unscheduled, unencumbered, unplanned day!  It's about time!

The Funny Things Kids Say

I am trying to be better about writing down the things the kids say that take me by surprise.  The other night, I was helping Katherine wash her hair.  Now, this girl is quite capable of taking her own shower and washing her own hair, but she claims that since it's gotten so long, she needed help.  I think she just wanted to extra attention, and that's all right too:).  As we got to work on her hair, Katherine said, "Mom, I wish you could go get on your bathing suit and get in with me".  when I informed her that we would not be using the tub and shower long enough to make that happen, she said, "Mom, when you get to be an old lady, and can't lift your arms above your head, I'm going to come over and give you a bath and wash your hair for you".  Obviously touched, I said, "You would do that for me?".  Katherine replied, "Yep, and I won't even let the boys in, since you won't have your bathing suit on and all..."!  I still think it's the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me!
