Dear Kids… (November 2011)
During the month of November my friend Amy has once again treated us to some classics. Hints of a 6th child and even a hilarious exchange with the FedEx guy.
Also, Amy started an exciting new venture called Grocery Getters! She and her friend will go get groceries (and more) for you. Delivery must take place in the East Aurora, Lancaster, & Orchard Park, NY areas. Check out their Facebook page for more details.
11/30/11 – Yesterday my cousin remarked on how neat and clean our house was, to which my to remain nameless son quickly retorted: “wow! no ones every said that to us before!” Gotta teach that kid to just take the compliment and smile!! hahaha
11/29/11 – Fed Ex guy just came to the door. I was explaining that we had a half day.. as he surveyed 7 kids running around with nerf guns and being wild and crazy. He replied he wished he could have a half day. I told him I’d switch with him and finish up his route… he was quick with a “no thanks… I’d last 10 minutes and those kids would have me tied up with those (pointing to the string of beads they were throwing around)!” hahahahaha probably true! Never a dull moment & I wouldn’t have it any other way!
11/25/11 – Dear Kids~ DO NOT waste my tape, taping your brothers mouth shut! Always the Killjoy, Mom
11/22/11 – From the mouth of one of my children: “you never know mom. maybe God will bless you with a 6th kid!”
11/22/11 – A to remain nameless child, that resides in my house, proudly took a photo of their “booger” last night! Yes, you did read that right! Welcome to my crazy (I wouldn’t trade it for anything) life! :)
11/10/11 – Dear Triplets~ Did one of you skip class today?? (Two of the triplets are currently having a fight about whether or not one of their classmates was in school today! All three are in the same class). Just Curious… Love, Mom
11/17/11 – A true love for learning – (To remain nameless) Son to me: “This is going to be the best day of school ever!?” Me:”Why?!” Son:”Because we don’t have to do any learning today!”
11/10/11 – I was busy doing something this afternoon when Zoey yells to me, “Mommy the boys are home.” I reply “OK!” And she continues with.. “JUST WARNING YOU!” Such is life with 4 brothers! :)
11/09/11 – Zoey in reference to her (very loud at the time) brothers: “I have zero patience!” Perhaps I’ve said that out loud a few too many times?!?!
11/07/11 – One of my (to remain nameless) sons was telling me about a silly game they played on the bus today… Zoey had been listening and remarked “yeah mom, kids these days are stupid!” LOL
11/03/11 – My children have lofty goals in life… goal of one (to remain nameless) child of mine: ” To eat less candy than yesterday!” (I guess a good question would be… How much candy did you eat yesterday!?)
