Confession Friday 10-21

Fall...is that you? My kids wore coats for the first time to school this morning, and this weather has put me in a very good mood! I think it calls for a round of Confession Friday. If you feel so inclined, you can go ahead and confess your little heart out.

I confess that I purposely did not purchase bubblegum for the kids' birthday piƱata last weekend, because I did not want to be finding gum stuck around my house for days. So I bought blow pops instead. Brilliant.

I confess that a sweet friend is taking my kids once a week to hang out with them for a few hours, and I have NO idea what to do with myself when they are gone. What is this freedom?? It is foreign to me. Yesterday I just came home and cleaned, haha. Next week, I might go to Hobby Lobby. Whoa.

I confess that I love Hocus Pocus just as much as the next whimsical fall loving gal, but I'm not sure if I understand all of the hype of obsessing over when it's going to be on TV when you can pick up your very own copy to watch any old time you want for $5. You know, because the mood might just strike at any moment...like in July or something.

I confess that my entire family is FULL of POOP today...and I do mean that quite literally. Someday I won't be the chief hineykeeper around here. Oh what a day that will be!

Speaking of....


My kids were getting ready to pose for a cute picture just for me when they looked down and saw a giant pile of dog poop on the ground in front of them. Moments after this there was yelling and running and...no cute pictures. But I did get this, lest we should ever forget this moment. :D And no, this photo wasn't staged. I had no idea what they were hollering about until after they ran away, haha.

Let's see if I can dig up some more from that day. Ah, yes.

Evelyn sneezed right as we snapped this family photo....


....and apparently Gracie was really amused by that.


Ha!
This cracks me up every time I see it. :)

I confess that I have discovered the official 2016 election slogan...we're going to get it printed on t-shirts, okay? You might have heard it before, and it's entirely fitting no matter who you are. Ready? "2016: Put your head between your legs and kiss your butt goodbye." You can substitute your own less PG verbiage, if you please.

I confess that I am in love with a woman. Her name is Wendy, and she makes great chicken sandwiches.

I confess that Eric wants to hire a cleaning service for me, and I keep finding reasons to put it off. I have issues with strangers seeing our mess. I'd seriously be that person that cleaned for the cleaning person. The thought of it all stresses me out, which I'm pretty sure makes me a weirdo.

I confess that I frequently find roly poly bugs in our house. I've seen ants, I've seen spiders, I've seen pesky fruit flies, but never in all my days have I seen a roly poly take over. Missouri, you're strange.

I confess that this blog space was almost no more. Dun dun dun. Our domain registration expired. Whoops! Eric saved the day, but it did lead to some questions like, "Just how long am I going to keep this up, anyway?" And the answer to that is, I have no idea. :)

I confess that yesterday I misplaced one of my children. It took me a long time to find her, and I almost had a panic attack. Charlotte can get just about anywhere she wants to go these days, including up and down stairs. I finally found her curled up on a princess sofa in the basement with a book, snoring away. She's such a big girl now, but seriously! Honey, you scared the crap out of me.

So, to my little sister Shannon I would say, clearly you should not take any parenting advice from me! I confess that we're so excited to be expecting a new little person in the family:


My baby sister is having a baby...I can't believe it. :) You have a year or two on me, Shannon. So that means 10 years from now you could have like six or seven little ones, no problem!

Also, my children insist that they get to see their cousin on the regular, so tell Tyler mmkay? Also also...that is going to be one cute kid!

I confess that I am sitting here eating an entire cake with a fork and that has got.to.stop, so I'm going to peace out here now. I have no idea what our weekend looks like, but I hope we can find the time to do something fun. Our next week is looking absolutely nuts, and I don't know how much Eric and I will even be seeing each other. I hope your life is a bit less crazy than ours at the moment and that you have a great weekend yourself! And if you happen to be getting married tomorrow, I hope it's all you dream it to be. ;)  Peace!

Yay!!! Congrats to your sister!!

And if you don't want that cleaning service, you can just give them my address :)

We finally broke down and got someone to clean every other week and it is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. It is such a relief to me to have that extra help! And, yes- I "pre clean" before she comes too! I have to make sure there are no dishes in the sink so she can clean it and pick up all the clothes/toys so she can vacuum etc.

Do it! You'll love it!

I'm such a newbie at this, haha. Do people have cleaners come when they are not home? I am seriously considering getting started when we leave for vacation next month. Just having a service come in and do it while we're away. I would LOVE to come home to a perfectly clean house!
