you say tomato....

So. As moms, I know we all anticipate the awkward moments when our little guys ask us about those certain body parts, right? I'm trying. I really am. I'm trying to be open and honest and give them technical terms - not 'wee wee', but you know, penis and vagina. I'm doing my part.

I know we've all heard the great V called v-jay jay by Oprah but I've got one better!! Drumroll, please.........
Little Prince has coined the term, "vajama" - sounds like pajama but the meaning is, oh, so much different!!

So, the next time your kids ask you what girls have (as Princess K has decided to ask me, literally, NINE times a day)...you can tell them boys have "enises" and girls have "vajamas". It sounds more fun anyways, don't you think?

Go Big....

Just a quick update....if you go to this site, you can see some amazing stories of what people are already doing with the money they received at church this weekend! So awesome!!

i've got five bucks....now what????

Today at my church our pastor spoke on generosity. I know what you're thinking, just wanting to collect more money...well, you'd be WRONG. What actually happened, brought tears to my eyes and made me so incredibly proud of Church by the Glades and Pastor David.

Over this weekend, Mother's Day - which is when we have record-breaking crowds, my church handed out $40,000.00 to its members to give back to the community to those in need, etc.

So, here's where YOU come into the picture. I received $5.00. I want to do more than give it to a homeless person standing on the side of the road. Send me your ideas!!!! I wish I had something to give away as an incentive for your ideas, but I don't.....sorry. The idea that does get picked, though, will receive the BEST shout out EVER!! Sound good??

Get busy!


happy mother's day....

I think I am a lucky woman. I don't get breakfast in bed (although I don't get to sleep in either - ugh). My husband has to work on Sundays and must be there before 7 AM and I have to follow so that I can sing in the choir by 8 AM....so today, was an early to rise day. The kids (and hubcaps, for that matter) made me the GREATEST cards EVER -- Princess K's had a picture she had drawn of herself in the tub and Little Prince drew me a car with a satellite dish on top?? It was so much fun though, because they were just so excited that it was finally Mother's Day....I hope and pray this enthusiasm continues throughout life!!

Not much else to report. Oh! I am looking for a part time job, so if any of you live in this area OR know of something that earns MONEY that can be done at home -- email me and let me know, okay?? Thanks.

Well, I just wanted to get on and say HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all my blogger friends, whether your kids are born or not, or are puppies or kittens, here's to ALL womankind! Have a GREAT day.

It's 2 AM...do you know where YOUR children are????

Mine are both coughing and wheezing and hacking and coughing some more. Poor Little Prince has been to the doc twice in the past week and still not getting better! Now, tonight (this morning, rather), Princess K can't quit the coughing and congestion. She's now half asleep on the sofa watching Curious George and here I sit. Wide awake. Only startled every few moments by her sweet, little, pitiful cough.

I HATE when the kids are sick. I feel so out of control. I am never sure whether to give them an antihistamine or a decongestant, Tylenol or Motrin....too many choices!! Anyways, if you think of it, please say a prayer for my little ones.

On another note, today something came out of my mouth that I just HAD to write down for future use....these words were actually muttered:
"K, do not bite the dog's tail - that's where poopy comes out!"
The best part, is that as I was saying it - I really believed it, but tell me, WHY did she think it a good idea to put the dog's tail in her mouth?? She thought it was hilarious. I know every day I must say something incredibly stupid like this, but this one stuck out.....how about YOU?? Please share!!

Until next time, have a great week.

AND, I can't wait to hear your quotable quotes!!
