Friday Fragments:FF

Mommy's Idea

Little E bit a hole on either side of his tongue while throwing a tantrum about his dinner on Wednesday evening. Jumping up and down on his step stool at the kitchen counter it flipped and his chin smacked the counter and his teeth chomped his tongue. I wasn't sure what was hurt but there was lots of tears and plenty of blood. After calming him down I looked in his mouth and found two holes on both sides of his tongue where his teeth pierced through. Hopefully next time he disagrees with my choice in his dinner he won't pitch a fit!

I finally have figured out the perfect time to get to the school and get in line at Parent Pick Up. It's crazy but I have to arrive at the school by 1:40pm even though the school bell rings at 2:05pm to release the kids. I hope that after a few weeks it will calm down and I can not stress out about it.

I miss summer vacation so much! This first week back has been a major adjustment for me. I am so tired and adjusting to this busy schedule is wearing me out! I was so tired today that when I went to clean the windows on my van I thought I grabbed the aerosol window spray. I sprayed the windshield and couldn't understand why it was so greasy and I kept rubbing and rubbing the paper towel. I looked at the can and noticed I grabbed the tire foam! ACK! I am so tired I can't even grab the right can!

I thought that my little boy was so sweet and tender. But the main word in that is BOY. He is ALL boy. Rough and tumble, dirt and mud, and crazy and loud! Yikes! He has hit his head more in one week of having a bunk bed than he has in his three years of his life!

The other mom's at my daughter's dance class can be so catty. I am trying not to stick my nose into their business and get involved with any of them. They are so rude and don't even realize or maybe care that I am sitting in a chair trying to watch my kid dance too! I guess next week I may have to get out the BIG guns and drag my chair up to the window and block them. Maybe I should let Little E bring his drum set and bang on it. It might drive them out the door.

I love watching Teen Mom on MTV. I am guilty of enjoying watching those young moms try to make it with or without a man to help them. This week's episode definitely confirmed their maturity for me. I think the only one I have a heart for is Maci. She seems to have her head on straight and has really grown up in the year after giving birth to her son Bentley.

Read an article on FB today from Seventh Generation company about BPA in receipts. Can you believe that BPA is in the paper and ink that is used? It's crazy! I have tried to be more health conscious but where do you draw the line?

I can't wait until it cools off some around here. I need to have a yard sale but it's so hot I couldn't face sitting in the heat to sell my stuff for small cash. My husband has suggested renting a storage unit until we can find the time to organize the yard sale. I am not looking forward to it.

Miss K seems to not be enjoying going back to school. I told her tomorrow was the last day and she thought that I meant the last day for the year. I explained to her that it was the last day for the week. Did she really think it was one week of school and then one off? I think she is jealous that Little E stays home with me.

I hate summer colds. This is my first one in years and it's knocking me down. It makes it worse that I'm already exhausted from getting up by 6:00am every day. I am looking forward to sleeping in on Saturday.

I still need to send out thank you's for Little E's birthday party that I had July 19th and now Miss K's from the 8th. I am so bad. I need to enlist the kids in getting this done with me. It might actually motivate me to finish it.

Looking forward to Sunday! We're taking the kids to Blue Springs to cool off in the 72 degree water for the afternoon.

Visiting you from the Friday Follow!

And I can so relate to the catty ballet moms. I ran into that myself last year. I've learned my lesson and I'm armed and ready this year!

It's amazing the tantrums that kids put up! Hope he rethinks this :)

I hope you feel better. All colds are nasty, no matter the time of year.

So much going on in your life--No wonder you're sick. The adjustment can take a lot out of you. In past years, I've always lost 5 pounds the first week of school (keeping my fingers crossed!haha)

Little cutie pie! I don't believe that sweet little face is capable of frowning.

I'm having a garage sale on Saturday; I prepped all day! Hopefully, it will be worth it--I have a lot of bills to pay, what with school starting (driver's ed, registration, clothes, etc.etc.)

Thanks for linking up! Have a great weekend :)

going back to school brings out a lot of frustration and a different schedule. hang in with those moms but if you feel next time you need to do or say something, do it with the outcome you want. rose

OMG, his poor tongue!

This is such a crazy time of the year, isn't it?

This is SUCH a crazy time of year! I totally agree. I'm exhausted as well as the kids! Every one needs a nap! I feel like I'm so behind on it all!
Feel better!

Christy said...

oh my, what a tantrum! I enjoy Teen Mom too. There's just something about it... Hope you enjoy your trip on Sunday!

Oh my what a tantrum! The poor thing; but I think you are right he may think twice next time..uh..probably not he is a male child. I think it may take a few more times. It is so strange to me reading about all of the kids that have started school already. Ours do not go back until after labor day. We are just thinking about it now.
I hope you feel better; I just got over a nasty cold..I think I could have slept for a week.
Have a great weekend!

My daughter is going back to public school (her choice) after homeschooling a year. I'm sure it won't take long before she starts complaining....

Have a great weekend!
