Now if She Does it Like This Will You do it Like That

This child is dropping more teeth than I know what to do with.


Okay, actually I do know what to do them. It just requires some ironing of fabric and a wee bit of work.

So, yeah, hi. Griffin began his "summer vacation" this week and holy crap, uh.... what the hell am I do with the kids all day? The pool opens tomorrow (yay!) so that will help a lot but we're two days in and already both boys are acting like fucking Neanderthals in stores and really, it makes me both happy and a frustrated that I don't believe in whippings because dude, did they ever qualify for getting escorted outside for a bit at the grocery store.

I always got escorted at stores. My poor childhood bum.

Cute picture! Do you make a bag for every tooth?

My mother was a, "do we need to go to the bathroom??" sort of gal. I still don't know what would have happened if I took it that far...

Say hello to the tooth fairy for me...

Oh, teef. How fun.

Hope the weather holds out and you can *take* them to the pool. There is absolutely no better way to wear them out. Even works for 12 years olds.

Summer vacation already?!
Amber still has eight weeks of school to go! But days at the pool should be fun, right?!

My kids are being hellions already too. And they've only been out of school for two days!

My favorite line is "you are so lucky I don't believe in hitting" and I don't think they got it until one day they saw a boy get it and the oldest said "we are so lucky you are my mom"...I guess that was his light bulb moment!

My mother carried a wooden spoon, appropriately dubbed Mr. Spoon, in her purse. If I began to act up, she would discretely show me Mr. Spoon and, without ever having to say a word, I would immediately get my shit together. If I had a Mr. Spoon I would go to jail. However, my children have been Neanderthals themselves and there are times that the peace and quiet of solitary look pretty damn good. I should talk to my MIL about that...

Have fun swimming. It would please me to no end if our fair county would sell county wide pool passes so we could pool hop every once in awhile. Our pool is not my favorite.
