SO What!


That I slammed my pinkie toe into the side of the door and fell to the ground in pain like a child. Izzy saw me in pain and asked to "kiss it", then when she kissed my toe she said, "eww stinky". Either she's really honest, or a tad rude. Either way, I love it and it made me laugh.

I love our new house, but I didn't realize that when you buy a bigger house, there are more things to clean. Call me an idiot, but it's a lot harder to keep a bigger house clean than a smaller house. One of these days I'll hire help...or just have more kids and make them clean up for me. That's what kids are for, right?

Izzy started "Little Gym" this week and I already think she's more coordinated then the other kids. Of course it's motherly bias, but I'm not going to tell her that. Sure her dad is 6'1" and I'm 5'10" and can barely stretch enough to reach my toes, but if she thinks she wants to be a gymnast, who am I to tell her that its probably not in her genes? Gabby Douglas here we come!

That the back seat of my car has milk stains and crumbs all over it. I promised myself that I would never be "that mom", but then I actually had a kid. On a positive note, the front seats look amazing. So, when you come to visit me and want to sit in the backseat, just sit on top of all the naked dolls and cheerios. They won't kill you.

That lately I have been in bed, asleep, at 9:30. Call me lame, but the Olympics are over so there is no reason for me to stay up late and I have been getting up around 5:15 to go run with my sister. Early to bed, early to rise, right? Or is that just what grandma's and grandpa's say?

Okay, now time for you to link up with Shannon and get some of the randoms off your chest.

yikes mama, I think you broke your toe :(
hahaah you sound like the duggers, they totally have an army of kids to cook and clean. it seems to be working for them + they have a tv show!

yeah, i think the early to bed early to rise thing is true. but sometimes you need a lot of sleep!

I love going to bed early. I am hoping to get well rested before Little Mister's arrival (but who am I kidding!).

I went to bed fairly early last night but didn't get up early to run. At least you're more productive than the rest of us, right?! Hope the stinky toe's ok!

These made me smile. I live in about 900sq ft and actually want to downsize (I am obsessed with the tiny house movement) mostly because of the house cleaning! I would say you are doing a whole lot better then I am if your front is clean. Usually I am doing a mad dash and flinging stuff in the back if someone needs a ride...
