Our fall schedule is starting to get packed! My children are only three years old and I already feel the pressure to sign-up, join, volunteer, etc... for activities! The babies are going to PRE-PRE K next week. Twice a week only. I am happy for them; I know they are going to learn and experience a lot. I still have a hard time with letting them become so independent. I only want them to be independent in the potty training department- so hypocritical I know! I enjoy the way their little minds work. I love their stories and their sweetness. But, they are growing so I have to let myself let them get big *Tear*. Okay, okay, I will get a hold of myself!

How can one enter Wal-Mart holding a list with 9 items on it and exit with a list (also known as a receipt) for $456.00?? I am not really sure how it happened; it was a bit of a blur actually. It started in the school supply section which still looked a bit ransacked from Tax Free Weekend. My basket seemed to steer me into what was in deed a $2 dollar sale rack in the children's department. Is it still a $2 dollar sale when you spend $60 at the $2 dollar rack? Hmmm...it's a problem. And then there was the $40 worth of dog food I bought for our enormous "puppies" that consist of a Yellow Lab and Pointer (okay LARGE PUPPIES that eat A LOT)! It started there, but ended very badly ...at the register. Swiping that plastic was very painful I must admit, but not as painful as my TODDLERS calling me "mom!"

Well it wasn't exactly a national holiday, but we did have a "go with mommy to work day" last week. Mainly because we did not have a babysitter and "mommy" had a list of things to do a mile long. It was fun though. We brought toys.And some of our old toys, happen to be stored at the office. Like our old faithful bouncy. It sings, vibrates, and was a hand-me-down from a friend. This bouncy has done its' fair share of vibrating, singing, and bouncing.
We even had some time to wear some of the "apparel". I tried to get them to all put their head in the shirt hole. Laci was too claustrophobic for that and Leyton said he was "cold" so they just covered up with it really.
I got nothing accomplished at "go with mommy to work day" but it was a lot of fun.

I was assaulted by a Deli Clerk last week at a local country store. No, she did not hit me. However, she assaulted me and defiled my pickles and onions. I left this country store grossed out and angry. :) She did defile my lunch. Here is what happened.

I have been there. And I have done that: gotten sick that is. Actually, several times I have attempted a meal at Carrabba's Italian Grill with no success. Let's just say that I left with a bad taste in my mouth and severe stomach pain. But, what I have learned is that I was going about ordering all wrong. Actually I was ordering off the wrong menu all together. You see, Carrabba's, actually has a gluten free menu. Tonight, Carrabba's and I became friends. It was the best of times, not the worst of times. Not only did I "safely" consume a meal in an environment I once coined hostile, but my meal was wonderful. I think I am going to have to become a saucier!

...called me "mom" that is. My babies...eer...ummm.. yes they are still babies. I kissed them goodnight. We said our prayers. We "told a story about God." And then, they did it.

It's probably not what you think. We did have a really great time catching up with old classmates. We certainly did laugh hysterically at our old yearbook pictures and we did re-hash old times. People change. And others have not changed a bit. If you would have asked me 10 years ago who I thought would return in 10 years for the reunion, I would have definitely received an F. Everyone did appear to have a good time. I do not think I have been that entertained in awhile. Especially since most of my entertainment involves toddler-speak, conversations about Poop, and the latest episode of Veggie-Tales. So, let me just tell you a secret. There was absolutely one thing that no one knew. In most high schools, there are clicks. And at this particular high school reunion, a click not only existed but formed rather rapidly around Mrs. Fitzgerald's island. I will certainly not be able to reveal the names of this particular click. But, I will reveal the premise behind the formation. I had a secret. Beneath my clothes actually. Don't be alarmed, didn't you read the title? Class Reunion: Sensored? It's certainly not what you think.
