Six Quirky Things...Not a Problem

1. I hide my toothbrush. My kids insist on using my bathroom to brush their teeth and all too often they "borrow" mine. Well, enough is enough, I have resorted to a secret hiding spot in the closet. Who knew?

2. I refuse to make two trips from the car to the house with grocery bags. Okay, I admit that the occasional trip to Sam's Club is an exception. For the most part however, I will use my freakish strength to carry ALL of the grocery bags in one trip. Why make two, when clearly it can be done in one? (Who needs a pinkie finger anyways?)

3. I tell mommy lies. Yes, it's true....and it works. My kids think that if boys wear earrings their ears will turn black and eventually fall off. I told them once that a certain button in our car would blow us up and every time Ady gets near it the boys cover their ears. Finally, mom's can always see if you do something naughty, even if she's not there. (My personal favorite.)

4. Okay, now you die hard Twilight fans hold onto your hats but I didn't finish the last two chapters of the series. I keep meaning to finish it but it just got a little out of hand for me. Don't get me wrong, I loved the first two books and could not put them down but I totally lost interest towards the end and just couldn't finish it. I know...I will before I see the movie, calm down.

5. I proofread all of your blogs. Please don't hate me, it is a habit that I cannot get rid of. When words are spelled wrong or the grammar is incorrect, I get all excited and want to make red marks all over the computer screen. That absolutely does not mean that mine is in anyway perfect, but I must admit that I often blog with a dictionary in hand just in case I run into a word that trips me up.

6. I am fighting a severe addiction to Diet Dr. Pepper with extra ice and a slice of lemon. Yes, thanks to Sonic and their brilliant idea of "Happy Hour," around two o'clock every day I feel the need to drink 44 ounces of carbonation and aspartame. I really am trying, any suggestions?



Hmmm... I try to do the same thing with the groceries. Seriously, who needs the pinky! I also love happy hour at sonic! I've tried to stop. The only thing that stops me is nursing babies that don't like soda! Haha :) I started the twilight books about 3 weeks ago. I read the first 3 in less than 10 days. but i'm really having a hard time finishing the last book. It's a little much - like you said :)

It's not an addiction!!! It's pure enjoyment and drinking refreshment!!! If you'd like, you can join Dr. Pepper anonymous with myself and Darlene...hehe

Lani I dont have anything witty and funny to comment about, but I wanted you to know that I had a good laugh reading this post. For some reason it reminded me of the good ole' days. I miss that I cant be around to laugh my head off with you! Yay! for all the mommies who are coming out of the closet with their secret denial...hahaha! Love ya!


LOL I am so glad that other mom's also tell "mommmy lies" someday our kids will think its funny, or when they go on a mission or to college they'll still believe it and get made fun sister thought FOREVER that if you drink coffee your hair will turn green LOL!

Steve and Kim

Man, we have a lot in common! I had a hard time finishing the Twilight books (it was painful at times), I totally proofread everyone's blogs when I read, and I am addicted to Dr. Pepper. BTW, I love your blog. It's very cute!

LeAnn and Cris
