Lord help me

My kids are going crazy. The end of the school year has them completely jazzed and befuddled, and apparently, completely deaf. I feel like a broken record. A crazy lady (though that one is probably true). Kong is equally irritated by this phenomena. We say something, and it goes COMPLETELY ignored. Like we never said it. Unless of coarse what we're talking about includes some sort of treat.

I'm getting to the end of my rope on this.

I asked Miss Cheeks to pick up the blankets. She plays bowling with stuffed animals and a baseball. I tell he again. Still bowling, only now in another room.

So mama gets in her face. I grasp her chin, get down to her level and say again, pick up the blankets.

How does she respond?

"Mom, your breath stinks."

Thanks, kid.


  1. Kids are brutally honest! LOL!

  2. Oooo, I have found someone with a similar sense of humor as mine. This post made me LOL. So funny. Anyway, I answered your question about second cousins once removed on my blog. I hope you enjoy my answer. Glad you found me through Sarah's blog. Glad I found you!

  3. My son told me, "Mom, your hair's all crazy and stuff. Here...let me fix it." (Coming from the boy with his pants on backwards and his shirt tucked into his Lightning McQueen undies!" :-)
