Dear Kids… (February 2012)
My friend Amy’s Facebook status updates for February we’re some of the best ones yet! Even her dear husband hijacked her account and posted. Thanks Amy for sharing.
02/28/12 – loves the thrill of getting every last dish and cup to fit in the dishwasher… even if you could have washed all of said dishes by hand in the meantime!
02/27/12 – Apparently Zoey is putting her duct tape to good use… I’m told Caleb is being duct taped to a tree!! Yep… just another day at our house!
02/27/12 – A (to remain nameless) member of my family, was flipping through the channels at my moms house, trying to find something to watch. A show caught his eye and he said to me “I didn’t realize you had your own show?!” The title of said show….. drum roll please…. “The Worst Cooks in America!”
02/26/12 – Dear Kids~ I’m no neat freak.. but FIFTEEN dirty cups on the counter.. is a little much… even for me! Always the Killjoy, Mom
02/25/12 – You know you live in a house full of boys when the big excitement of the evening is that a fart has been recorded (by a to remain nameless son), and the entertainment of the evening is said recorded fart being played over and over again. Never a dull moment!!
02/24/12 – A few of the kids were playing hot potato… Caleb was the hot potato… he is now telling them they need to play tug of war with him (as the rope) yup… just a normal night at our house.
02/20/12 – Dear (to remain nameless) son~ The fact that you would have rather hit your brother ten times harder than you actually did, does not make you in any less trouble. Nice try though! Always the killjoy, Mom
02/16/12 – Is so proud of her boys.. they are planning a little sibling “party” for Zoey, and had me take them to Rix, using their own money to buy treats for her!!! I can actually feel the love! :)
02/15/12 – Dear Boys.. If you’re trying to push me over the edge! Mission accomplished! You can turn your efforts elsewhere! :)
02/13/12 – Dear Amy, In the future I’d rather hear about this from you directly. Not from when I’m creeping on your facebook. And oh yeah, I hope, for your sake, that you read your status before you brush your teeth tonight. Mwah ha ha ha! – Love, Tim
02/13/12 – Dear Tim~ I am sorry that you are the only one who actually puts your toothbrush into the bathroom cabinet (in attempt I’m sure to keep it safe!) and that it was unfortunately your toothbrush that ended up in the bucket with the toilet brush (it met its demise as it fell out when I opened the cabinet this morning).
02/09/12 – We were walking through the store and one of the kids saw “Jiff” peanut butter… and said to me, “Mom we need to buy Jiff Peanut Butter because Choosy moms choose Jiff!” Sorry kid… that might be true but Cheap dads choose Aldis… so you’re out of luck! :)
02/08/12 – Dear Stockade Leaders at Church~ Its been a crazy week at the Kasper house! I may be a few YEARS late in picking up the boys tonight! Hope you understand and thank you for your contribution to my sanity!!
02/08/12 – I thought having only ONE girl, and FOUR boys, I would have avoided that whole fighting over clothes thing. However, apparently boys fight over clothes too! This I found out as I tried to get ready this morning (and could hear said discovery over the fan in the bathroom… because of course boys do NOTHING quietly!)
02/06/12 – Dear Bus Driver~ I’m sorry I had you waiting while my (to remain nameless) son grabbed his shoes… I assumed being that FOUR BOYS live here… he would find a pair quickly and be on his way. Thank you for agreeing to stop on the way back up the street when we both realized this was not going to be the case!!! Love, The disorganized mom :)
02/05/12 – You might be a Redneck if… you are thrilled that your son found the door of your mailbox (which blew away during a windstorm a few weeks ago) and has reattached it!
02/05/12 – What my playroom now looks like after a Saturday full of fort making (and a Sunday in which I cleaned nothing!) No doubt the meter reader guy will come tomorrow morning b/c he as to walk through the playroom to get to the meter and WITHOUT fail always ends up here on the messiest of days! :)
02/04/12 – The kids are making individual forts downstairs. They have everyone from (queen) Zoey who is a “rich person” living in a 2 floor mansion fort… to Andrew who is a “Hobo” living in a tiny tent fort he can barely fit in! I am not to worry about my hobo child though.. he showed my a (fake) 20 dollar bill he found and is saving it for college! My kids crack me up!!
02/03/12 – Poor Zoey…sitting amongst her wild and crazy brothers… whom at an extremely ear piercing volume, (while we were trying to watch a movie), carried on a conversation, which was littered with words like butt hole and poop, looked at me longingly and said “Mom, what was it like to grow up with all sisters!?” All I could tell her was “Nothing like this Zoey!” Never. Ever. a dull moment here!
02/02/12 – Zoey was screaming and acting all wild and crazy… so I looked at her and said, “ZOEY?!” to which she responded…. “What… I’m just trying to fit in!” hahaha I couldn’t help but laugh… indeed she did fit right in with the brothers in that state! :)
02/02/12 – Zoey hid a cute little note for me to find today… loved her signature.. “Love, Your only normal child!”
02/01/12 – Dear Martha (Stewart)~ Yes, my dogs did run into the house from outside..getting mud ALL OVER MY FLOORS, and no I did not clean it up! I see no point, this will be a repeat situation all day today! I will clean it up when things are frozen again! :) Love, The mama who is polar opposite of you in nearly every way!
