Thoughts for Thursday

1. Negative 6 degrees does not look any different than negative 51.

2. Sweeping is so fun for children that they will willingly dump 1,623 Cheerios on the floor so they have an excuse to sweep.

3. I'm thinking of giving up my hotmail account for the sole reason that everytime I sign out I see articles about this show or that show that I used to watch and don't anymore. Or I read about a terrible crime that's been committed, or something negative about our president. I mean, seriously, you try running the country. I happen to like our president. alot.

4. I've been having pregnancy dreams again.

5. I also had a dream that all my children were kidnapped by a would-be fiance of mine because I wouldn't marry him because he demonstrated signs of jealousy, possessiveness, and being a control-freak, and because I was already married. And for some reason I had seven kids in the dream and Pookie was still just 6 years old.

6. It's the last day of the month and I have not visit taught two of my sisters. But I am going to call them and give them the lesson over the phone, and maybe drop off homemade oreos.

7. It's the last day of the month and I exercised two times. unless you count jumping on the mini-trampoline. or chasing a two year old down to change him. or carrying a chunky Ham around in a backpack. Those don't really count though. I am resolved to do better next month.

8. Powdered milk is much more expensive here than fresh milk.

9. We've consumed a lot of powdered milk in this last month due to my lack of desire to venture out into the cold with little people.

10. I bribe my children to go to sleep with promises of a surprise. And then I rack my brain thinking of a surprise before they wake up.

11. I have a sixth sense when it comes to baby poop. I know they've done it even if they're on another level of the home. For instance, today I was sitting at my desk in our homeschool classroom minding my own business, not even thinking about poop, and I was greeted by the most horrific smell. Since Bun was in the room, I hopped up, tackled him down, and sniffed his rear-end. Nothing. not even a hint of a somethin'. But the smell was back again in no time. So, I left the classroom, went into the bedroom to find a smiley Ham in his playpen sending out smoke signals. Oh. my. word. It's a good thing I just finished making baby wipes. As it turns out, I used four wipes on that pork butt.

12. Three children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 6 cannot successful "fix" a princess castle into a little home even with an entire roll of scotch tape without the help of a Mommy and her "super tape."

13. Apparently, I am a carnation. Thanks Laura for the link.

You Are a Carnation

You are down to earth and grounded.
You tend to be more traditional than trendy.
Your confidence gets you through anything.
People trust you and are very loyal to you.

It's fun to read your random thoughts, Nikki. I like our President, too. I cannot imagine living in your cold.

Mary said...

Lol. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You're a lovely carnation. :-)

B loves to help vacuum. Sometimes I suspect him of making a mess just so I'll get it out...

1. I'll bet it doesn't FEEL the same.

2. 1 box of grapenuts + 1 toddler = unhappy mama.

3. I like him, too.

4. Are you trying to tell us something?? Of course... I've been having them, too, and my hubby hasn't been home long enough lately for anything to lead to it.

5. Totally bizarre

6. ummm, I haven't done mine at all. DOH!

7. It's the last day of the month and I exercised two times. yeah.

8. Really? I would have thought it would be the other way around.

9. That's the same reason that I haven't done MANY things. Darn winter.

10. I've done that more than once, myself.

11. you can come sense things at my house any time you want... as long as you change them as well.

12. EEEEK! I am protective of my tape.

13. I appear to be a lily.

umm...concerning number 4, does that meant that you are pregnant...and by pregnancy dreams, do you mean the x rated ones? Also...I took your dang flower test and it said I was a dried up dandilion...what does that mean? hahahaha...just kidding, I am an Iris.

Nikki said...

To clear things up, I am not pregnant. I've been having dreams about being pregnant and about newborn babies.

Cynthia said...

I loved hearing your random thoughts. I also have reaccuring dreams, but mine is that I'm pregnant in highschool but still married in the temple to my husband. That drill team uniform with me pregnant doesn't even look good in the dream.

I love this post...our mothering days are filled with ups and downs, adventures and peace, joy and sorrow...challenges abound and growth continues forever (for Moms and their children).
