Thanks for stopping by today! XOXO
I'm going to be sad when my kids figure out that sometimes, I put them to bed early too ;).
Love these! But I cannot figure out what the "D word" is….I must be having a senior moment. I love spelling errors like that, they crack me up. My sister-in-law thinks "idea" is spelled "ideal" – she'll text me "I have the best ideal for this weekend!" LOL!
Hahahaha!!! Love this!
Tab's comments are super funny!! Also, that tractor story is one of my faves!! Love it! 🙂
I loved his feedback!
Well, until today I had no idea going to to grocery store in a swim suit and cover up could be co suffered inappropriate! Maybe that's what growing up 15 minutes from the beach does to you, but you see that here all the time. Also, I consider the ability to easily potty outside one of the best things about having boys! I don't encourage it, of course, but a discreet 3 year old pottying into a bush sure makes for a lot less stress at times!
These made me crack up Erika! EXCEPT for the one about germs… NO! Seriously – I work in a hospital and we see kids pick up some NASTY illnesses that are so much for their bodies to overcome … not worth the risk. A large number of kids don't wash their hands and some adults are bad, too! ICK. You can get really sick from some of the things on grocery cart handles and in kids play areas… eek!!!! Google it!
We are great hand washers and my kids probably over use hand sanitizer just because they like it. 🙂
When Brooke and Harrison were younger I may have once or twice set the microwave ahead an hour so it was their bed time 😉
Nixon will start asking questions soon!
Love! Can totally relate to the potty incident! My daughter peed in the floor at a store (with carpet!) yesterday as I was checking out! Mortified!!!
I was behind a lady whose daughter did that at the grocery store last week. The mom started crying. I felt horrible for her. It happens to us all!!
I spell the exact same way! Like I'm typing it out! My kids have also been known to lick things or people. Oh gosh.
Love this Erika! So funny!
When we lived overseas, we visited the village of our ancestors that immigrated and my toddler needed to potty while we were in the church at the center of the town square…no bathroom inside and so the lawn had to do because nothing else was open thanks to the Queen's bday! Desperate times, desperate measures.
Ha – my kids are 6 & 8 and we still have panic potty moments — REALLY? Why didn't you go the 3 times I asked to make sure BEFORE we left the house! Beware, 8 year olds start to understand time, Ashlyn will tell me often it isn't her bed time yet…even if it's 2 minutes early!
great post and glad i found your blog through the link up 🙂
I laughed out loud at that potty moment! Years ago, when my son was about five or six (he's 28 now) we were coming home from running errands. As we were getting out of the car, he's telling me he has to poop. We lived in a really old house and the front door lock was a little temperamental at times. Of course, when he has to poop, I can't get the door open! Needless to say, I just told him to pull his pants down and let him do his business on the front porch. Don't worry, I hosed it off afterwards!!
One of our favorite things to do in the summer after a long day of swimming is run into to HEB and pick out your dinner. Sometimes its yogurt, sometimes its a microwave dinner, sometimes its sushi…but its always easy!
I think every boy mom has a potty story! My son had to go in the drive thru at Chick-Fil-A. I knew I didn't have time to get him and my daughter out of their car seats and take into a very crowded chick-fil-a in time, so I pulled into the parking lot and let him pee in a paper bag. In hindsight, I see that was a terrible idea. I thought it might hold for a minute until I could get it to the trash, but NO; it went straight through to the floorboard of my car. My son looked at me like I was crazy!
The germs on the grocery cart made me laugh. I used to not care then I got hand foot and mouth disease (at age 26) and my doctor told me I could have got it from the grocery cart. Now I MUST wipe it down or I have flash backs of that AWEFUL disease!!
Great post! Reading all these desperate potty moment make me feel kinda lucky…never came close to anything this bad when my son's were little. It never seems to matter what time you go to the post office, there's always a long line. Funny how your husband is the one who changes the roll of toilet paper. A lot of times it's the guys who forget! Lol.
That is so awesome!! I can't wait to read Thursday…such a GREAT topic. 😉
Another thing we have in common…totally not a germaphobe and have never made a big deal with my kids…may or may not have had one lick the handicap rail in a public bathroom. My ex-husband always griped at me for not washing my hands all the time but HE was the one always sick!!
I am DYING reading the part about the post office. Gotta do what ya gotta do, right?!
Love this, too funny! We just had a potty moment five minutes ago when my 5 year old stood on the side of the trampoline to potty in the yard and it blew back on the trampoline where my other three kiddos were jumping!!! Lol!
1- my kids potty by my car all the time. Ekk seriously. How else do you do it in a store. Thankful for boys!! 2- I do the typing thing too. Not sure why. Ha!! 3- I'm like you in being organized and chaos all rolled into one!!! Drives Austin crazy!!!
I swear post offices set the crazy off in kids.. I was in line and my son was about 3 or 4 he wanted a sucker and I said no . So in front of everyone he just pulled down his pants in a rage and stood there.. I wanted to die lol
This make my heart smile every time!!!!!! Love love love. xx
