Manic Monday....

When you have three kids life is busy on Monday Mornings!

My boy crawled in bed with me at 5:15AM and asked if all mommies sleep naked. Crap. "Ooooh Mommy cover your boobies." Ok...so I guess it's time to not sleep naked anymore. He's still young enough, but still. When they're telling you to cover your boobies...it's time.

(Yes, I could tell stories for ever that come out of my children's mouths.)

That being said, it was an early wake up. This mama was not ready to rise and smell the coffee. However, when I actually smelled the yummy coffee I thought the hubby surprised me with a pot of timered Java. Ugh...no. My darling girl made a pot for me and she's getting mighty good! Then she told me to have a cup and she'd bug me after. :) She sooooo knows how the mommy functions.

Coffee was being sipped and I could hear my purse being rummaged through. Yep...same daughter was pulling out my makeup. After I handed her the lipgloss she was pissy because it wasn't clear enough. It had too much color. UGH...Excuse me. So the tude was there...and the coffee was a sugar coat. LOL!

The girls were off. Sam and I finished getting ready and we went over to the Grandparents' Day Tea (yes that's today i think.)Since we have no grandparents here...it was just the mommy. It was fine, though. I got tons of video and pictures. They did a little song and served tons of doughnuts. So...all in all a wonderful busy day all before 10!

The life of a mommy. See guys...it just keeps getting busier as they get into school :)!

Today my goal is to find some good ice skates and hockey ones for the boy. Yes, Ava (6), used the caller ID to call the grandparents and talk them into sending her to Ice Skating lessons. Hmmmm....she has learned young. So, now all get to go. See what happens after a weekend of watching The Ice Princess!

Happy Monday Friends...
PS...We soooooooo need to live closer!
XOXO

LOL about the boobies. I'm so glad we haven't hit that point yet. I can still stick Sam in bed with me occasionally and not worry about a shirt.

That's to funny. I have always slept in the nude and so to my daughter it is normal to see "boobies" but I am afraid once my son gets a little older, that will no longer be an option!! lol Even now when he's in our room early morning he points and laughs. It's pretty bad when a 1 yr. old laughs at your boobs!!

I loved your post on 9/11! I wrote a big long comment but it didn't go through and I didn't want to re-write it again! lol But the jist was it's still sad,and I still remember being stationed at Lejeune at the time and the base shutting down. I remember thinking that I didn't want Chris to be sent off to war, and I remember him saying "please send me to help kill the bastard that did this, it's my job as a Marine and it's what I need to do." I still cry, and still think of the friends we have lost in this fight. God Bless America!!

Nah. It's never time to stop sleeping naked!

A Manic Monday, indeed!

Em stares at my Boobs if I get dressed in front of her... it makes me paranoid...LOL Keith had his shirt off once and she went over to him and pulled his Nip so hard he screamed like a little girl himself! LOL That is good enough reason for me to always wear mine around her...

Mondays always seem to be manic.

Ditto to the sleeping nude. I don't have to worry about the big kids yet :)

LizzieDaisy said...

Wow do I have the naked stories to tell. My son went into the bathroom (my hub refuses to lock the door, or close it most of the time) and he saw him peeing and said, "MY penis is really small..." with a very sad look on his face. I said "You DID tell him that his penis will grow as he gets bigger didn't you?!" He did not. Jerk. :) My kids also told the neighbor kids we were having sex one day (right after my hub told them what it was) cause our door was locked. Now whenever it IS locked and we stay in there for any length of time, we are suspect.

And geesh, my kids consistantly walk in without knocking despite my locking the door (I have double locks for sex, but forget when I change sometimes)... they can turn that little puppy from the outside with their fingernail. And my hub always goes out while I'm changing and doesn't relock anyhoo. Grrr. My latest in the bathoom, "What is that string mommy?" I did not answer that one. Hate the, "You have a sun on your butt." WHY OH WHY did I get a tat? Talk about manic Mondays...

So anyway, enjoy your freedom while you can girlies... if you have boys, it will definitely go by the wayside, and if you don't... you'll still have explaining to do.

Girl, what the hell do mean time to stop sleeping naked? I'm gonna have to do that some day?!?!

Doggone...I'd better start looking for comfy jammies now b/c it will probably take me that long to find something that doesn't twist all over me.

Great stories, and aren't Mondays fun? We actually had this speaker once who his whole point was to put a positive spin on Mondays, and the only reason they are looked upon as a negative is because people make it FEEL that way! Well, of course they make it FEEL that way.
But it iTuesday now so it's all good!

Melissa said...

Hey Christie! Sorry it's taken me so long to find my way over here.
LOL at the sleeping nude. Glad the Grandparent's Day Tea was a success and coffe girl is pretty smart and sounds like the ice princess is learning from her!

truthwarp said...

I used to work with this dude who would *intentionally* walk around the house nekkid in front of his rugrats.

Sounds like your "incident" was tame enough by comparison.

Peanutt said...

LMAO!!!! That is too funny!

Dottie said...

LOL Christie! I'm glad there is someone else out there that understands the mania that comes with having more than 2 kids and a pre-teen/teen daughter! I don't sleep in the nude b/c I have a phobia I will have to run out of the house in a fire and be left naked in the front yard. SO NOT PRETTY!
