9. Stop growling at your sister.
8. Where did those scissors come from?
7. You are NOT a monkey. Stop jumping on the bed!
6. Sharpies are not for bodies.
5. Spit those clippies out right now!
4. You have to wear clothes if you want to go to the store. Those are the rules!
3. Don't touch Batman's (the dog) butt, that's gross!!
2. Go put your panties back on!

When you go to the bathroom at my house, be prepared to be met by two little cheerleaders when you exit. You would have the wonderful pleasure of using the restroom without an audience. I do not have this luxury. My girls feel that the bathroom is common property at all times. This hasn't been too much of an annoyance for me, until today. I guess I've just felt that if they see that mommy does it this way, it's ok for them to do it also. Well, today I have rethought my view on this. It has been absolutely gorgeous outside the last few days. In the 80s with a nice breeze. Just my kind of weather! So, needless to say, all the windows in my house have been open. That is very important to remember..... ALL THE WINDOWS! Well, I had to use the restroom. It happens... of course, as always I shut the door, but it didn't stay closed for long. K comes in "What you doin' mommy??" ... "I'm going potty".... "Oh. (pause.... then....) *gasp* YOU DID IT MOMMY!!!!! Hooray!!!"... she runs.... litterally, RUNS to find A. "A, guess what!!! Mommy went pee all by herself in the potty!!!".... in comes A... "meme, YAY meme!!!" by this time I'm done and I turn to flush... A beats me too it.... "Bye Bye pee!!!" Now remember, all my windows are open. I wash my hands and come out to K jumping up and down...and yelling... YELLING.... "Mommy You did it!!! Good job mommy, you went pee like a princess!!!".... I hope my neighbors windows were closed!

Mountains of toys and not a shower in sight....

If anyone came by my house today I think I would pretend to not be home..... although that's a little hard to do when my van is sitting in plain sight and my kids are peeking out the front window. It seems that I am never caught up. Many people would claim that my home is impressively clean for having three small kids and a dog...... I think anything other than complete filth is considered impressively clean! Bathrooms typically get cleaned twice a week..... last week they got done once. Not at all so far this week... that's a first! My floor has been cleaned almost every day, but you would never guess! I guess that comes from having hardwood and an almost crawling baby that spits up and then smears it around everywhere before I (or the dog) catch it! This has been one of those weeks where you are running around like a chicken with your head cut off, but you seem to get nothing... and I mean NOTHING... accomplished. As I am sitting here, I can hear the floors and bathrooms begging to be cleaned. As my middle child, A, is tugging on the strings of my sweatpants (which so desperately need washed) I smell that all too familiar smell.......gross.... got to go wipe another stinky bottom! But it's ok.... all too soon my children will seem to have no need of me. The poor toys that my dog has attacked will forever be forgotten and will be replaced with I-pods and cell phones. I'll be chasing boys away instead of dust bunnies and wiping too much make-up off my "grown-up" girls instead of messy stink!

Day5- Something Old

I'm a little sad that this challenge is coming to an end. Today's picture is of something old. It's not really that old to me, but this piano lamp was my husbands grandmothers. We inherited it when she passed away last year. I have really enjoyed it. Not only is it useful, it's beautiful! I love the light blue glass and the antique brass of the base. This picture does not do it justice!

Day 3- the view from my door

This is actually out my kitchen window. Not extremely interesting, but hey, it's a view! It's better than staring at a wall, and when the kids are outside I get to watch them play while I work.
