Ninja time!

Man, I regret ever watching American Ninja Warriors with the kids! Ok, may even not really. It's a really cool show and amazes me how strong both men and women can be with an immense amount of endurance!!! But, it's so cool to my boys that they try to make everything in our house a ninja warrior course. Outside on the deck, they will climb along the deck railings, they will jump from one couch to the next. In the house, I caught one trying to come down the stairs while only holding on to the railing. In the basement,...

Porn Cines

Children really do say the darndest things right? Well, this past week, the husband took the kids to their soccer game. He gave them the small speech of quit pushing and chasing each other around. You see, these two boys are 18 months apart, so they get to play sports together every 2nd year or so. This comes with great advantages. Only have to go to one location at a time and we only have to follow one schedule. Well, as we start the season of soccer, the boys tend to play at separate times on the field, but then...

Blood or Spray Paint???

Sooooo last Saturday evening we decided to invite some little friends to come and play with the boys....well all was going well until this: Interesting image right? Well, this is how it started. The boys, 4 of them, were playing downstairs while the adults enjoyed time alone. Then the youngest one came upstairs to talk to his dad. All was well until the dad said, what's that smell? Why do you smell weird? You smell like paint. The little guy innocently says "no". I'm thinking it can't be paint, must be the scented soap he used when he washed his...

GOOD BEHAVIOURS

I don’t know about you, but here in this house, we get a lot of bad behaviour and I feel as though I am always focusing on it. Awhile back, I spoke to a friend of mine who has two boys and they were trying to focus on the good behaviour. I thought hmm, this is interesting, how does it work?? He told me, anytime they were making good choices, they would receive a pompom that would go in a jar. Once the jar was full, they received a reward. I thought this was a genius idea. See, in my...

I AM LISTENING!

“Don’t touch that, it’s hot!” “Stop hitting each other” “Don’t spit” “Stop yelling” “Don’t climb on that” “Ew, don’t eat that” “Get off of that” “Stop punching each other” “Don’t run in the store” Do any other these quotes sound familiar? I’m assuming yes and it doesn’t matter if you have boys or girls, you are most likely telling your kids to stop doing something or not do something. In my house, it doesn’t matter how many times I say any of these quotes, they just DON’T LISTEN!! AAAAHHHH, it drives me bananas!!  Here is an example of an event...

Picky Eaters

Sound familiar? Most likely or maybe you are a better cook than me. My two older kids would eat anything for a good time, but then all of sudden, the elder one decided he didn't like tomatoes, mushrooms and some cooked veggies. Oh, the joys of the fussy stage. By being a picky eater, the middle child decided he doesn't like tomatoes or mushrooms either. Oh, and to top it off he doesn't seem to like many cooked types of meat as they are hard to chew. Oh, the joys of not liking a meal. If it's not something they don't...

Sleeping Sucks!

Yes, I hate bedtime and always dread it when my husband has to work late because that means I have to put all 3 crazies to bed and for some reason, we can’t get it to go smoothly. It’s a two-person job. I am not looking for solutions or “have you tried this” tip. It is what it is and yup we are probably developing the worst sleeping habits so our boys will grow up terrible. Sorry world :P See, I always knew I wanted 3 kids, so when we found out we were pregnant with #3, we decided why...
