Kids Crash Video

Arbonne Kids

So after the 8th try of making this video the kids came in and crashed my one woman video making party.  The results were too hilarious not to share… and let’s face it, their version is WAY better! Click Here to check it out.

Invisible Baby, Comin’ Through!

IMG_1572

Every now and then my husband requires the family vehicle to drive to his occupation where he can make the numbers for our bank account go up, so we can buy Om-noms for our tummies.  Which leaves me with the responsibility of walking our tiniest offspring to his Preschool where he begins to learn about those same numbers which will help feed his little pack of humans, someday.

This walk is pretty brutal in Arizona during the summer months, so I don’t do it.  I just DON’T. But now that fall has arrived is was a chilly 70 degrees at 6:00am this morning.  By the time we left the house at 7:45am it was already 79 degrees.  Dang, Arizona heats up fast!  The Preschool is only 1 mile from the house, which is was a 15 minute window to contemplate whether I should leave the stroller there or not.  I mean, it would just be stupid to walk an empty stroller back to the house only to walk the empty stroller back to the preschool in less than 3 hours.  However, when I got there, everyone else was taking their empty strollers with them.  I knew I couldn’t leave my stroller behind.  I was going to have to walk that little ‘b’ all the way home. The long lonely walk of awkwardness.

Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with a sense of humor.  So when I rounded the corner to see a bunch of teenagers waiting for the bus I knew I was in for some fun.  You see, teenagers are notoriously and unnecessarily serious… and dramatic… and teenage boys are the worst when it comes to smiling or laughing.  I pushed that empty stroller right into the midst of them and said, “Excuse me.  Pardon me.  Invisible baby, comin’ through!”  One teenage girl openly laughed!  I couldn’t believe it!  My plan to make a teenager smile had been a success!  The others smirked and one kid looked at me like I had just farted in his face, but in the end.  I made a teenager laugh today.  Not too shabby, Jennifer, not too shabby.

Next week, I should rig the stroller with a floating hat.

Still Not Your Mom

This. Just. Happened…

(phone rings… I answer)
Me: Hello? Hello?
Girl: Mom. I need you to bring my homework. I left it on the kitchen counter.
Me: Um, I cant bring you your homework becaaaauuse… I’m not your mom.  Im sorry, but I think you have the wrong number.
Girl: (pause) Mom! Don’t be mean.  Just bring it to Mrs. #####’s class.
Me: Still not your mom.
Girl: *click* (hangs up)

So I decided to text her.  That’s what a nice person does, right? *teehee*

Here’s Hopin’ For Hope!

Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”

This verse touched my heart today from Proverbs 31 Ministries.

Wherever you are and whatever you believe, hope is real. I don’t fully understand it and I’ve rarely experienced it, but it is real nonetheless. AND if you’re like me, you really need it. So here’s “hoping” that we get some soon! 😉

LOVE YOU ALL! Seriously, even you, Random Castleville and Gardens of Time friends! Especially you, Never Met You Geeks In Cyber Space Friends! I’ve got enough for all of you, Facebookies, Tweeps and Blogites!

Master Potty Jedi

masterpottyjedi

Well, the 5yo did it!  It’s official, folks.   He has now mastered the potty.  I know the last couple of posts have been a little on the more serious side and that you can probably tell my heart is hurting quite a bit.  Well, 2013 has got to be our year because after nearly 2 years of fruitless potty training, our 5 yo son is not using the potty completely.

If you want to read how the victory started… check out my last post Tootsie Roll Factory Working Again! Thanks, Homeschooling.

I couldn’t believe that on March 4th I could be putting him in underwear, but the day after the post went up we tried it.  He has been in underwear for TWO WEEKS!  3 small pee accidents for waiting too long, and 2 poop accidents for being sick (I don’t really count those, but for posterity I list them 😉 LOL!).

Before all of this happened he used to complain about the “bad feelin’s”.  He would say things like “I don’t not

Compared To Whom???

FRIDAY FACES with Jen…

So when I was told as a teenager that I “didn’t have a face for modeling” and was told by dozens of peers that I was “so ugly” that they “wanted to cut my face off”… I think… compared to whom?

These women???? Listen ladies! We’re beautiful. God knows I don’t feel beautiful. I think I am ugly for most of the day. But I put aside that abuse, the wounds from it and my insecurities when my 5yo son tells me “Mommy. You’re beautiful. I want to stay with you forever.”

I won’t allow him to stay with me forever, but I will allow him to love me. And I’ll believe with him, that I am beautiful…even if I am only able to feel it a few times a day. It’s better than never feeling beautiful.

So when you feel down about your looks, just look at these poor girls who are being made a fool of for fashion’s sake and know that God cherishes His beautiful daughter that He fearfully and wonderfully made…YOU! ♥ Love you all!

-disclaimer I understand this kind of fashion to some extent.  Shoot! I love Cosplay.  But these women are really being degraded and forced into an unhealthy lifestyle.  It makes me very sad for those young girls 😦
