And the "Mother of the Year Award" Goes To...........

...NOT ME!!!

Yesterday I let my kids play outside almost all day before I realized I hadn't put any sunblock on them. Aly's got some sweet tan lines to prove it.

Today while I was on the phone with my sister, Tobe and Aly got into my postage stamps and put them all over themselves, the walls, and the drawers.

Later today Aly came into the computer room (she was out coloring with her brother and sister so I snuck away for a minute). She was acting a little strange and very cuddly. I scooped her up and cuddled her. She kept sniffing her nose like she had boogies in there. I checked and could see something but thought it was just a booger.

I took her upstairs to see in the light, only to find a large pink object lodged in her nasal cavity. I called Brett home and after a quick, expensive, and for the most part painless instacare visit:


It was the tip of a crayon.

She's all better!!

Happy Mother's Day to Me!!!

Oh man- don't beat yourself up. I guess it makes for some interesting stories to share someday. I do hope you have a WONDERFUL Mother's Day!!

Go Aly and Tobe!!! Jane what are you going to do to remind your mom that she is a mother???
I love days like that. It gives us all something to laugh about later.

I can't wait to hear the details and what Aly had to say. Mom would have loved this one.

You and your kids make me smile and keep us all entertained!

Unless you live in a year-round sunny place, the sunscreen routine takes awhile to work back into. So it is no surprise that you missed that one. But you did say "tan lines" instead of "sunburn lines", so the kids must be okay. And as far as the postage stamps, well the kids weren't too far off...they ARE a "special delivery" in a way, so they were just decorating themselves for the part. And the whole crayon-up-the nose episode, well, at least Aly learned she should not put a crayon up there or she will have to go to the doctor. Maybe that will deter her from pushing anything up there again. My little one loves to put cereal up his nose and then blow it out himself. Nice.

Being a Mother can be SOO much Fun.

I think that makes you all the more Mother of the Year in my book. Happy Mother's Day, Amanda! Enjoy your day.

Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha...needed a good belly laugh! You have the best stories and the cutest kids. I was hoping to see a picture with the whole crayon sticking out of her nose. You have such a fun life.

"Calgon take me away!" That could have been one very stinky crayon!

I hope you have a nice Mother's Day. <3
