Do you smell that stink?Good I'd really hope you didn't.Kaden still has accidents in his drawers sometimes and it's a big stinky mess.I finally got lazy and took a pair of his underwear to the spigot outside to be rinsed which is right under the kitchen window.I had the window open airing out the house as I washed out underware then as I was doing dishes the stink flowed right to my nostrils.How did I take care of the stink?I got me a oil plug in air freshner that belongs in an electric plug in and just stuck it in the window.Problem solved!It dosen't stink anymore.I had lunch with my friend today 30 minutes after me and Kaden hit the burger joint.I still managed to eat 1 large order of fries then 2 plates at the buffet then I ate my burger 5 minutes after getting home.Yep your right I am a bottomless pit.Kaden now goes to school with pride instead of tears.They put a train track in his class room and that makes him happy.I am planning to take the kids to the park tomorrow after school gets out.It's suppose to be warm and windy!We finally managed to get a tire swing up for the kiddos this evening.I took my turn on it to make sure it would hold and it did so I guess it's good to go.What would you use to hang a tire swing?I'll take a pic tomorrow to show you what I used.I'm planning on having another giveaway very soon!I believe I once said I was going to have one every month but haven't held up to that so I done one in March and I will have one in April!Keep checking back so you don't miss it!

Sorry for my absence.........

I guess I posted friday so I haven't been away for very long it just feels like forever.Thursday I over slept and had to take the kids to school.I gave them the lecture about waking me up Monday-Friday if there is school.Friday morning they remembered what I had said and all 5 kids was standing outside the bedroom door with pots,pans,and spoons beating away.I made sure they got on that big yellow bus!!We got some flash flooding yesterday.I alway's rake my leaves to the driveway that way when it rains and floods my leaves wash away to the neighbors yard.I told the kids to behave so we could go to the store and buy the stuff to make a banana split cake and chicken strips for supper.They are behaving nicely.There ain't been much going on here.

This Has Been the GREATEST day EVER!!! { i will tell you about yesterday first}

Where do I start?Oh yes,with yesterday's doctor appointment of course.I took Justin and Brenten for their well child visit yesterday {they have not been to the doctor in over 2 years}.Brenten went first for his examination.He passed with flying colors.As the doctor was checking his nether regions he informed us all that his penis is bigger then Justin's {I guess he has been sizing up his brother}.Then it was Justin's turn and he also passed with flying colors.The doctor said he will start slimming down since he is in the puberty stage.So great news on both!This morning I checked my phone for any emails that came in through the night.I had a bunch of junk and a friend request from my cousin that I had not seen {or so i thought}in 12 years.I had been searching high and low for her but had no luck.Well to recieve a friend request from her was just an awsome feeling!We have been texting since 7:30am this morning.Our birthday's are very close together but I am 6 day's older.It is so goos to hear from her.Last year I was so close to her and didn't even know it!When my 2nd child was born I thought I saw her at the hospital but figured I was wrong so I just passed her by.She informed me that she seen me!Man we could have talked and kept in touch but neither of us wanted to look like a fool.I'm just so thankful she is back in my life!
I had to take the girls to the doctor for their visit today.Ashley passed with flying colors but Kelsey failed a couple of things.I have to put her on meds for 2 weeks and see if that helps her peeing problems.If it don't help I will be taking her to a specialitist.Hopefully we can get something worked out.Kaden gets to go to the doctor tomorrow!I never realize that my kids never get sick enough for a doctor and then years gets away from me.I guess it saves on the bills.And now that I remember that it is St.Patty's Day,I hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy 4th Birthday Kaden

My baby boy is 4 years old today!If you want to get technical he is 4 years 1 hour and 33 minutes old!He was born March 16th 2006 at 7:00am.He was 5 pounds 12 ounces and 18 inches long {if I remember right}.I snapped this picture of him as soon as he woke up and came to me this morning.My baby is not much of a baby anymore {but I will still treat him like one}.

I did it! I did it!

I managed to take Kaden to school today!Now I hope you understand I would of let him stay home but had a meeting with his teacher's so decided he could stay.After the meeting I got to come home and be lonely all by myself for a little over an hour {I left home to get him 30 minutes early and it's only a 10 minute drive}.Brenten came home from school being a terror to the other kids.I was at the door watching the kids on their bikes and Brent rode by Justin and tried to wreck him so Justin told brent karma was going to get him and at that moment Brent had a nice bloody crash.He is fine and will recover before bed time.Just some little scrapes on his hip,chest,and elbow,oh and a bloody nose.My Monday has been terrifffffic!I still have to go buy the kids lunch for school tomorrow but I'm waiting on Donald so I don't have to go alone.Did I mention Kaden had a fight with Brent's bike on Saturday?He most certainly did.He got a hefty know on his head behind his ear and managed to make his ear swell.He also recovered by bed time.Are you thinking my kids are accident prone?Yep they most certainly are.I hope you had a blessed Monday and hope your Tuesday is even better!

The Difference..............

The difference between the north and south:





> The North has Bloomingdale's, the South has Dollar General .


> The North has coffee houses, the South has Waffle Houses ..

> The North has switchblade knives; the South has .45's


> The North has double last names; the South has double first names.


> The North has Indy car races; The South has stock car races .


> North has Cream of Wheat , the South has grits.


> The North has green salads, the South has collard greens .


> The North has lobsters, the South has crawfish .


> The North has the rust belt; the South has the Bible Belt ..




> In the South : --If you run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in

> a four-wheel drive pickup truck with a tow chain will be along shortly.

> Don't try to help them, just stay out of their way. This is what they live

> for.


> Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store... Do

> not buy food at this store.


> Remember, 'Y'all' is singular, 'all y'all' is plural,and 'all y'all's' is

> plural possessive.

> Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed later on how to use

> Don't be worried at not understanding what people are saying. They can't

> The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper .

> In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is

> to pour gravel on it and call it a driveway.


> AND REMEMBER: If you do settle in the South and bear children, don't think

> we will accept them as Southerners. After all, if the cat had kittens in the

> oven, we ain't gonna call 'em biscuits.


> Send this to four people that ain't related to you, and I reckon your life

> will turn into a country music song 'fore you know it.


> Your kin would get a kick out of it too!

What's Been Up Here?

CLEANING!!!!!Yes that is what I have been up to.Good news is that I have nothing left to clean!It's still the kids spring break so no school this week.Why can I clean the entire house when all the kids are home in my way but don't have the energy to do anything when they are all gone?All well at least it got done.The kids and I loaded up and headed for the grocery store this morning.They was all great {yes I said GREAT} while going through the store.Some people show such shock when they see a mommy shopping alone with 5 kids and the kids are following in a single file line touching nothing but the floor under their feet!Yesterday the kids was starting to get at each other but then I had an idea.So I sent all the kids in search of plastic bottles with lids then they each made their own bird feeder.After getting them hung in the tree's the kids sat quietly without moving so they could see which feeder the birds liked best.To their surprise the birds hit everyone of them.Hopefully to reward them for being good all week the weather will stay nice and I can take them to the park for a picnic and play time tomorrow.We all enjoy the park.Yes when I take my kids to the park I play on the equipment too!They love it that their mommy can act like them.Our pet birds have laid eggs!They laid some before but they didn't have anything but a bowl to lay them in so they didn't sit.This time they have a private box.I noticed the male bird only comes out of the box when the mommy bird say's it's ok.She is so controlling of him lol.Donald's mom will be here Friday or Saturday!She is finally getting out of the nursing home!We will all miss seeing everyone there but we can alway's go back to visit them.I feel so blessed to have the family I have.Not everyone has family and so I would take in each and every person as family if i was able.I follow 5 moms & a blog and the yesterday post has had me laughing and thinking.If you haven't been there let me know and I will send a link.I guess I should go find something to do.Maybe I will rearange my living room.Man I love it that I can now do that by myself!Have a happy blessed day!

Happy Wednesday!We are 1/2 way through the week!

Ah it's finally Wednesday!My week has just flew right by.I have managed to get alot done which is near a miracle with all 5 kids home.We have had nice weather during the day so the kids have been able to play outside while I clean the house.I think this is the day that the temps will be in the 70's.Brent caught the trash men yesterday since our trash haden't made it to the curb and the guys waited while he ran the trash to them.The trash men here don't like waiting for your trash but they seemed to have enjoyed waiting for Brent.This morning Brent and Kaden got into a fight which happens alot.Kaden clawed Brents eye and Brent smacked Kadens arm but they are both fine now.My friend picked up Justin yesterday at Murphy's so I only have 4 kids today!I seem to have alot to get finished up today so I better go get started.Have a WONDERFUL HUMP DAY!

Can you see the humor?

Today my 3 year old son {he will be 4 in 2 weeks} got a wiffle ball from his Grandma.I have bought these alot and never had a problem with them.Well today we had a major issue with one!I was relaxing on the couch with a very good book while Kaden sat next to me holding this ball.Then I heard him say "Mommy look finger is stuck".I thought no problem I'll just wiggle it out.That didn't work so I added alot of lotion.That didn't work so I drug out my hair clipping scissors and cut that ball in half.I still wasen't able to free the finger and although it had only been a matter of about 5 minutes the finger was swelling.I took him to the kitchen and poured a 1/2 bottle of vegetable oil on the finger.Still it just wasen't coming out!I finally told my mom I was taking him to the emergency room to either get the ball,finger,or both removed!The recepconist thought it was funny and so did all the ill people waiting to to be seen.They had us in within 30 seconds and the doctor started cutting the plastic to try to free the finger.He finally added ky jelly and that still didn't work.So he finally went and got a pair of clamps that look like scissors and a small pair of scissors and he came back to get the job done!10 minutes later my baby boy was walking out of there with all 5 fingers and no plastic on his finger!I didn't give them my name,address,phone number,or anything else so I don't guess I'll be getting a bill this time!Little mans finger is still red and swollen but it dosen't seem to be bothering him.Then about 15 minutes after arriving home My oldest son ran into the house with both hands covering his face and blood gushing.I hate blood.It make my tummy do icky things.So I followed him to the bathroom and he opened his hands over the sink ewwww.I gave his a wash cloth and asked him what happened.He told me he had a bike wreck and lost both of his shoes LOL.I have never heard of that but ok I thought.I went outside to fetch shoes when my middle son yelled to the neighbor kids "Justin had a bike wreck and it gave him a bloody nose"The neighbor kids yelled back "No he didn't!" I came back in and told him it couldn't possibaly be a bike wreck and that is when the truth came out.He said "I was jumping on the trampoline playing dead man dead man and I jumped to escape Sarah and I hit Malachi's knee"Ok now that sounds more like it.The bleeding stopped and his nose looks normal.Now all the kiddos are in bed and I am taking a breather.

It's almost.....SPRING!

And I can't wait!I got seeds planted in pots and in the window sills for sunlight yesterday so before long they will be ready to be moved outside!I bought rakes,shovels,hoes,tree clippers,and a 3 prong dirt digger.Now all I need is the chain saw out of the truck so I can cut me some wood for the fire pit!I went outside yesterday to help some ladies load up the little tike toy's and was fine in my t shirt until I seen it SNOW!!!!Yes it was snowing!I then turned cold and thought I would never warm up.I have to decide which tree's I want left and which ones are coming down.I discovered last year we have a mulberry tree which is way awsome!I want my garden by it with a bench so I can work in the garden then sit on the bench and eat the berries while sippin cold water from the garden hose!I haven't done much lately.Out cockatiels have been mating so I built a nesting box last night for when they are ready to lay some eggs.
