Whatnot Wednesday

*The other day we were in the grocery store and Jack stopped (in the chip aisle) and said, "mommy I need to pray, dear God we need some rain! amen."  The lady next to us looked at me and said, "he's really, really little."  All the way home I kept thinking, what was her problem she doesn't even know how old he is, how does she know he's little?  Finally it dawned on me, 2 year olds don't stop to pray for rain in the chip aisle, so she was making a (correct) assumption.

*With our new schedule of picking Kylynn up from school at 12:30, Chloe takes her complete afternoon nap in the car, which leads to two major problems.  1)I have at least one child awake and needing my attention, every moment of everyday and 2)Chloe has to make all the way till 7pm from a short nap ending at 1pm.  I do not know how to fix this, but I'm not liking it.

*Kyle and I painted our den this week.  We taped, textured, primed, and painted the walls two colors and the ceiling a third.  We are down to just needing to paint all the trim, it has been intense, but I was very motivated, I told myself I cannot watch anymore seasons of Lost until this project is done.

*When I say we painted our ceiling I mean we painted it a color.  I found all these articles about it online and saw these amazing pictures and decided we should go for it.  The ceiling turned out so much darker than I had imagined so I had a complete melt down and decided that I wanted to re-paint it.  Kyle lost his mind was frustrated with that idea and I decided to give it a night to get used to it.  I've decided I like it,  really like it, it's different, but it looks really cool (pictures soon).

*My kids have totally ruined my brain, I cannot tell you (because my brain is ruined and I can't remember anything) how many dumb things I have done this week.  But today I went from never getting my kids names right on the first try,"Kyly..Ky..Ja..Chloe!", to not even calling them a real name.  "Please stop climbing up the stairs by yourself, Shoe-y."

*We went to the library this week and there was a lady there, getting a library card, and she was essentially naked.  She had on a bright purple "dress" that covered just to the bottom of her, well bottom, above and below that was all skin.  Then on her chest it covered just a strip down the middle, as in a large portion of her boobs were just out there.  I didn't know what to do, as we walked to the line, I was  scared Jack would point her out, loudly, (praise God Kylynn was not with us!) but he didn't.  Then she turned around and caught me staring at her and I felt embarrassed but then realized that there is no way someone would dress like that unless they wanted people to stare and really it was impossible not to.  I just kept wondering how she could move in that dress and not be afraid that at any minute she might accidentally be showing off her who-ha to everyone.

You make me laugh out loud!! Is that the way you spell "who-ha"? I've always wondered! I need a good excuse to use that word in a blog post. :) Shoe-y and who-ha in one post...that's tough to beat!

I got a good laugh out of Shoe-y!!! And you should have just told that lady in the grocery store that Jack isn't tall, he's just very advanced!!!

by the way, the shirt he's wearing in the picture is hysterical!

Loved the shoe-y!

And the school pick-up/nap issue - I totally hear you. That was our issue last year when I picked up our oldest around lunchtime. Drove me crazy. I don't have any grand ideas for you but just wanted to say that i get it!

And painting the ceiling a color - awesome! I love doing that. Looking forward to seeing the end result.
