As a family, we are always saying/hearing/reading funny combos of words and we exclaim: “That would be a cool band name!!” It’s kind of a running joke in our family. Some of my favorites have been: Splatter Cat (I know, ew, right?) Taco Over-Load and Mental Mohawk. I have a new favorite: Brass Knuckles for Christ I hosted […]
What do volcanoes and bologna have in common? Why, Grant, of course.
Scene: The dining room. My good friend Dave is visiting. He is Grant’s Godfather and in that role, he is subjected to endless stories, games and all around squirrely-ness. After one long winded story about the Lego ship he built, Grant said the ship crashed into a volcano. Dave: “Crashed into a volcano? Bummer. OK, […]
I’m going to start letting Grant pick out my shoes.
This post may contain Amazon or other affiliate links. Scene: I am working on the computer. Grant is in the next room watching TV. I cannot see him or the TV, but I can hear everything. I hear the word Shoedazzle, whatever that is. I assume that it’s like the Bedazzler, but specifically for shoes. […]
Evil, talking socks.
Scene: Getting ready for our annual camping trip and we’ve been charging the batteries for the walkie-talkies. Grant had a dental check-up a few hours before and had chosen plastic vampire teeth from the dentist’s “goodie box” as a reward for being a good patient not squirming too much. I noticed a lone sock sitting on […]
The Atlanta TSA stole my son’s yo-yo.
So I just got back from The Haven Conference, which was fabulous and I’ll tell you all about it in the the next few days. There were lots of great sponsors there and one of them, Fish Foam, was giving out toy yo-yo’s along with samples of their product. Most women aren’t that into yo-yo’s, […]
What’s the secret code for getting out of homework…?
I am soooooo glad it’s the end of the school year! I am tired of fighting The Battle of the Homework. Going through Grant’s papers I found this: The assignment was to look up a word and write the definition. While it would no doubt have helped if he had spelled concert correctly, he appears […]
You just can’t make this stuff up. More of life with Grant.
Scene: Yesterday morning, Grant and I were about to walk out the door to head for school. We notice it is drizzling and a bit chilly. Me: “Grant, run and grab your jacket, it’s kind of cold.” Grant: “I’ll be OK Mom.” Me: “It’s wet. Grab your jacket.” Grant: “I can’t….” Me: “What do you […]
I love it when my kids take an interest in nature. This month, Grant has decided that he is interested in birds. I took all of these shots stealth-like, through the window. That which you study, you also change… so I didn’t want him to see me. He is so patient, sitting there with his […]
Scene: Dinner time. We are all gathered around the table and Conner’s phone keeps buzzing in the next room. He must have gotten 15 text notifications during dinner. (Note: Phones are not allowed at the table… it was in another room and I could hear it.) About a half an hour later there was another […]
Field Trip: The Orange County Swap Meet
Do you have a swap meet near you? The Orange County Swap Meet is near us and we forget how much fun it is to go there, so a few weeks ago that’s how we decided to spend a Saturday morning. I decided to take my camera so that I could blog about our little […]
