My son Kellen, cracks me up. I absolutely love seeing the world through the eyes of a 4 year old. On almost a daily basis he makes me laugh out loud with his thoughts on things. Today was no exception.

Ahhhhh....what a great (and busy) week! It started out with a bit of craziness: Kelli and Tom having school day performances of their play, the kick off of the fun run that I help coordinate for the school and a forecast of cold rain for basically every day....which pretty much always makes a 'fun run"... not so fun. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and the kids had a great time. Poor Kellen, (who gets drug around with me for all of these events) ran approximately 8 miles. The best part of that,( besides the 2 hour nap that followed each run), was this.....it made me feel MUCH better about all of the fast food he has eaten this past month. Between school obligations, play practices, driving here....driving there......general life business......we're gone a lot. Somehow I must have missed the mothering class on packing food with you when you're going somewhere. I forget about 50% of the time and the other 50%, I'm just too lazy. I think he is probably the only 4 year old who needs cholesterol screening! Thank you Mc Donalds!

I recently had a girlfriend say to me as we pondered the challenges of raising sons, "every mother should be required to have at least one boy". I couldn't agree more. Don't get me wrong here....I adore boys!!! Its just that until you have had one living in your (once clean) house, you really can't begin to imagine how much mischief they can get themselves into. Today was one of those days....

Hmmm...this is harder than I thought. Where to begin??? It seems a little boring to give you my life story because....well frankly, it's not all that exciting. And also, I'm really expecting that most of you reading this already know me. Here are the basics: I am a stay at home mom of 3 awesome kids (Kelli, Keaton and Kellen) and 1 fabulous husband (Tom) . According to many who are close to us, we have a lot of fun in our house. I don't know. My view on the 'fun level' in our home is that we could do better.... actually, I'm not sure my family would really say that I am very fun to live with at all. I have my fair share of cranky days. I yell. I nag about everything. Its more like this..... our lives often feel to me like an episode of Seinfeld....crazy, random, every-day interactions that are...... when I step back and take time to find the humor...absolutely hilarious (although not always funny "in the moment") . Just today, my youngest, Kellen (4) pointed out that the unfortunate part of my being a girl is that I don't have a .......um......penis, and instead, have to pee out of my butt! The good news is that he said this only to me instead of like, in line at costco or something, which is usually where he decides to declare this kind of stuff.
