"not me!" monday

no, not me! i did NOT pretend i was going to leave billy in the front yard when he refused to get into the truck to take maggie to school. i did NOT strap maggie in and continued to tell him to get in or i was leaving him and i did NOT, when he ignored me, plop myself in the front seat and close the door and start the truck! and i really did NOT laugh when he started running and screaming toward the truck like i was going to leave him forever. nope, not me!

today when i picked maggie up from school i needed to go run an errand for their dad so i decided since it was so hot, to treat the kids to a nice refreshing drink (sonic happy hour, 1/2 price drinks after 2:00, which was NOT by the way, dr. pepper and NOT some fries. i would never let my children drink a coke or have anything fried! it is so hot here and humid! at least 90 degrees. they were so excited! right after i picked up the bolts for their dad, maggie informed me that she need to go to the bathroom. i must start off by saying my kids are "bare feet" kids. the first thing they do when they get home is take off their shoes. needless to say as soon as mag's was in the car, off came her shoes and socks. billy followed suit. we are about 20 min from home and maggie said she needed to go the the restroom. i asked if she could hold it. she said nope. it is so hard to take billy in to a public bathroom and remember neither of them had their shoes on. so i did NOT ask maggie if it would be alright if i pulled over into a neighborhood and she could put on one of billy's diapers and "relieve" herself because that would be silly right? then i most certainly did NOT spend the next 5 minutes trying to talk her into it!

by the way, her answer was NO!

remember to go check out the other "not me!" monday posts at my charming kids!

project 365 ~ oops

i forgot tuesday!!!!

tuesday, march 17th

billy had his first taste of dark chocolate and he loved it! well, as you can see.

project 365 ~ week 12

sunday, march 15th

i know this is weird but i LOVE this plastic wrap. the reason why is that i HATE the wrap that doesn't stick to anything or even itself!! very frustrating. this plastic wrap has it's own cutter. so all you have to do is pull it about and then slide the cutter over and there you have it! love it!! i have been using it alot lately. since i am doing weight watchers i have been making these great little 'not so' ice cream sandwiches that are to die for. you get the low fat graham crackers, honey or chocolate. break the sheet in half. mix a couple of drops of peppermint/mint extract in a reg. size tub of fat free cool whip. then you put 2 tbs of cool whip mixture on 1 half of the cracker. then put the other half of the cracker on the top. ok, this is where the plastic wrap comes into play. wrap it sip safe, because it is the best, plastic wrap and freeze. one tub makes about 15-16 sandwiches. and to top it all off, they are just 1 point a piece! yes, you read that right. just 1 point!!

monday, march 16th

maggie took this picture of her paw paw. they come over and had dinner with us. we grilled hot dogs and they were wonderful! there is nothing like a grilled dog!

wendsday, march 18th

when i went in to get maggie dressed for bed this is what i found on her wall. when i asked her what it was and how it got there this is what she told me.

me ~ maggie, what is this on your wall?

maggie ~ i drew on it.

me ~ yes, i can see that but why? you know you are not allowed to draw on anything but paper,

maggie ~ yes but i was playing doctor and i wanted to see how tall i was. see... ( she then walked
over and pit her back up to the wall and her hand on top of her head to mark how tall
she was ) though she made herself about 2 inches taller than she really is.

thanks to whoever invented washable markers and mr clean magic erasers!!

billy found my box of 'stuff' that i have always kept on the back of the toilet since the day he was born. he decided to help himself this morning. i had a good laugh...

friday, march 20th

my family loves asparagus! as you can see from this picture. i have to cook 2 bunches at one time to feed all of us! i put them in to a pan and drizzle a little olive oil on them. then i sprinkle sea salt on them and put them into a 400 degree oven for about 15 mins. they are scrumptious! and very weight watcher friendly!

saturday, march 21 st
