Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a blessed weekend. Ok, so I know you've all just been dying to know what I had planned for Monday. I decided I would feature a blog/website I find wonderful every Monday! You know, to pass the goodness along. And, double whammy, I even have a guest "poster" for you!! I stumbled across this cute little blog written by a cute little girl. Well, she's not little as in a 10 year old, but well...you get the picture. Anyway, her name is Megan and I'm not telling you anymore because that would defeat the purpose in featuring her blog and telling you to GO CHECK IT OUT! :) It's called Simple Chaos. You'll be glad you checked her out. And now, I'm please to announce Megan! Take it away girl!
Where do I start? First I would like to thank Cat for welcoming me as her first guest blogger, on iBlog. Then I would like to say that I am completely honored that she chose me.
Did you ever see the movie Selena? You know the part where she is having the press conference in Mexico, and she is trying to speak to everyone in Spanish (if you have not seen the movie, it is great and Selena did not speak Spanish). There is a point where she says “Estoy…estoy muy…EXCITED!” I will tell you I feel a little like that! Except that I do
speak Spanish, and while I am excited, I feel like I can’t find the words to describe it all fully.
I got an email several days ago asking me to be a guest blogger. Honored only begins to describe how that made me feel. Since then my brain has been going non stop, what do I write, what if nobody likes it, what if Cat looses all her readers because I just plain stink? Well, I decided I should read a bit of Cat’s blog and see what she is all about. Let me just say that on more than one occasion, I felt like she took the words right out of my mouth. I look forward to reading her blog and seeing how she puts her thoughts (which also happen to be eerily similar to mine) out for all to know.
And that leaves me with my guest blogging post… I am a not
a procrastinator by nature, but I have started this post over and over in my head, and each time it is different. SO I figured, once again, I will sit and type and I will quote my boys here “You get what you get, and you don’t throw a fit”. This by the way does rhyme if you are in the South!!
Sunday afternoon, we went to Target to pick up a few essentials, deodorant, milk, diapers, and laundry detergent. The boys were extremely well behaved, for the most part. Jay (he is my 6 YO) has to touch everything
! While waiting in the check out like, he is touching every part of the buggy (that’s a shopping cart). In the process of all the touching he did not realize his hiney was stiking out and knocking down all the ding dongs on the display. Here is the conversation that followed:
Me: Jay I am going to need you to pick all of that up and pay attention to what is going on around you.
Jay: But mom (in a whiney 6 YO voice) I didn’t even do that.
Me: Son, your little hiney was sticking out and knocked it all down, please just pick it up.
Jay: honest mom, it was Casper, he was pushing my bottom like this, and this, and this. (He was saying this while half bent over and shaking his rump wildly from side to side)
Me: Ok, please ask Casper to pay more attention and not to push your bottom around like that.
Jay: (looking over his shoulder, in a very stern voice) Casper, you always get me into trouble, I can’t take you anywhere with out you causing a ruckus!”
At this point there were about twenty people staring at us, all cracking up! Which really only egged our little comedian on. The boy has a future I tell you, he is a funny boy, knows how to work is audience, and defiantly knows how to make people laugh!!
That’s all folks, I have enjoyed my virtual time here with you guys, feel free to hop on over and check us out
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
