This a continuation of hilarious Facebook status updates by my friend Amy. Triplets mean three times the fun, right?
5/29/11 – Dear (to remain nameless) son~ If you are going to wear mismatched socks to church, which I have no issue with at all…. a small tip…. do not choose one of your sisters PINK socks, along with one of your white ones! In that instance, it probably would be better to skip the socks all together!! Always the killjoy, Mom
5/24/11 – has found the black hole of (some of) our missing socks! Its our sandbox! Yep, apparently, that’s where missing socks like to hibernate for the winter! (and as I hear myself yelling to the kiddos outside “EITHER PUT SOME SHOES ON OR TAKE YOUR SOCKS OFF” I realize how it is they got there!)
5/20/11 – Compliments to my dinner last night (from the mouth of Drew)~ “mommy are those green things that look like boogers the avocados!?”
5/19/11 – Dear Neighbors~ Do not be afraid, as I was, when I looked out the window and saw the “Battle of the Croquet Sticks!” No matter how real the jousting looks, and how angry the faces are, they tell me, it’s only a game!!!
5/16/11 – Out of the mouth of Drew (yet again)~ as Evans ride pulls up this morning (Evan hates for me to even hug him in front of his buddies)… Drew says “Kiss him on the lips mom, that’ll really get him going!”
5/15/11 – From the mouth of Drew: “Watch this Mama! Wait don’t watch cause then you won’t let me do it anymore!”
5/15/11 – Dear Kids~ Does anyone know how she got them or WHY the dog has a pair of scissors in her mouth!?!?!?!
5/10/11 – Dear Boys~ If you are going to fight in the morning… could you at least pick something worthwhile… the order in which you get on the bus, does not qualify as such! Always the killjoy, Mom
5/7/11 – Dear Boys~ You might not want to agree to games where Zoey is the Princess, and you are pheasants and her servants (forced to make her lunch etc etc) ! Just a bit of friendly advice! Always the Killjoy, Mom
5/6/11 – Dear Kids~ You have obviously forgotten that unless someone is (profusely) bleeding, vomiting (someplace other than in a designated vomit bowl or the toilet), or dead… I don’t want to hear about it!!! Tattling that someone threw a sock at you, does not fit the above criteria!!! Always the KillJoy, Mom
5/4/11 – Loved her (to remain nameless) sons excuse to not finish the dinner he didn’t like last night: “But mom.. if I eat this, I’m going to have an unpleasant experience on the toilet!” LOL…
5/3/11 – Feels like she really shouldn’t have to say things like this: “Boys please don’t spit in the garage!”
Here are the updates from the previous months.
