Take me out to the ball game

Tonight was Samuels last game for the fall. It isi bitter sweet, part of me is glad to have less on the calander but I really do love to watch them play.

Samuel plays all positions and I feel he plays them well.

Ridley will be the same that baby is just like his dad. They both can do anything.

I really got alot done today, but sadly the list is still long that needs to be done.

On a side night, why do people just let their children run wild (worse than animals)???

If anybody has any input I would love it.

My final rant of the day is why do people but crap they do not need with money they do not have?

Mom said...

I spend my days saying pick up your stuff, do not touch that, use your inside voice and the list goes on and on and on. It is the same list all mothers have. I am sad to say that more times than not it falls on deaf ears.

The excuse list is full.

But then today I hear really hear one of my sweet angles say this very phrase.

"MOM SAID" used like a bullet meant to pierce the offending sibling.

I sat between laughter and disbelief. Really I thought... you think that is going to work? I just told you to do X and it meant nothing. But what is funny is that it holds some crazy weight when coming out of a child's mouth.

Maybe this week I will tell one child to go tell the other whatever it is I need to say. It will then be done, because ...... "MOM SAID".

Oh how time flies

It seems like only yesterday that it was July. I am really going to try and do better. I seem to get mired down in the everyday stuff and forget that living comes first. I try so hard to keep up that I put my own self behind.

I really wanna be that all together person. It is just not who I am.

So I will work with what I got :)

I would like to ask all you moms a question. Should we not be training our children to be adults? Adults that can take care of themselves? That make great spouses and future parents to our grandchildren?

I see all these Facebook posts about I do this, and this, and this.... for my children. (side note, I love to do things for my children and family as a whole) BUT PEOPLE come on, you are making yourself crazy, your kids lazy and the rest of us..... we think you need help.

I love face book but it has turned into a flea market/ self promotion billboard. Are you doing these things so you can have a status update, to get a pat on the back or are you doing them at all.

Ok rant over :) Have good week!
