Dear Kids… (December 2011)
December came and went just like various items eaten by Amy’s dogs. I wonder if they ended up being re-gifted after all?
Do you enjoy these updates by Amy as much as I do? Should I continue posting them? Let me know in the comments.
12/30/11 – Nothing shocks me anymore… not even when I walk into the boys’ room and the kids open up a dresser and pull a sibling out!
12/26/11 – We are all playing the game Life and Zoey is absolutely distraught that she has passed every opportunity to get a baby girl!!
12/256/11 – The dogs must have decided a little nutrition was in order..after having consumed cough drops, chicken wings, grandmas rain cap, Swiss cake rolls, glass ornaments etc etc. Dazie had something sticky on her head when we came home tonight… the culprit turned out to be a can of grandmas ensure which was found chewed up on the couch!!
12/24/11 – Dear Dogs~ Please stay out of great grandmas purse…. chewing on her rain cap, and eating her cough drops… not a good idea. Eating chicken wings off her plate, not a good idea either. My thoughts to re-gift you to another (unsuspecting) family… are mostly likely going to turn into your reality!
12/23/11 – Due to our Christmas Guests.. the bottom of the tree (all ornaments within the dogs reach were chewed off by them) has been decorated a 2nd time!! Here’s to hoping it stays that way!!!!
12/21/11 – is going to re-gift her dogs this Christmas!
12/19/11 – Me kindly and softly to the boys… who were being very loud and crazy this morning: “That’s enough of that loudness boys” Zoey quickly chiming in.. in a not so kind voice.. “THAT MEANS SHUT UP!” Can you feel the love!?
12/14/11 – is not sure exactly what was going on in front of our big picture window (nor do I want to know) when I heard one triplet say to another..”THE NEIGHBORS DON’T WANT TO SEE YOUR PLUMBER’S CRACK!!”
12/12/11 – I guess boys will be boys…. to remain nameless son: “Mommy I’m gonna give this gas stove some more power” … (promptly proceeding to then let one rip)
12/10/11 – Dear to remain nameless son~ Your brother is absolutely correct in stating that I (as your mother) have the power to make your life miserable!! Always the killjoy, Mom :)
12/09/11 – I hear loud noises on the stairs and children laughing and singing everyone’s favorite Christmas Carole… “Dashing down the stairs, in a cardboard box…. take me to the hospital.” Never. Ever. a dull moment!!! (and while I am certain they are dashing down the stairs in a box.. I hope their take me to the hospital line doesn’t come true!)
12/06/11 – A to remain nameless son woke me this morning, asking if he could do the laundry. After realizing indeed I was awake my response was (sadly) “What do you want!?!”
12/06/141 – Zoey to one of her brothers: “You’re a boy… its a very common species with sooommeeeeee…… problems!”
12/04/11 – Dear anyone who noticed this in church~ The reason I quickly grabbed a second piece of bread out of the communion plate, just before the usher picked it up… is b/c my to remain nameless son, mistakenly took two pieces and decided to put one back! So, I wasn’t greedily grabbing a second piece I was swiftly taking the already been touched piece before the plate left our pew!
12/02/11 – Zoey will not be receiving all the items on her list this year, as one of those items is a sister! Sorry Zo! That ship has sailed… long ago!! :)
