Crack Me Up Friday - Animal Classifacation
I read THIS post over at Amanda's and it reminded me of something my oldest son said when I was teaching my children about animal classification. But, since she titled hers "Crack Me Up Friday", I decided to patiently wait until today to post it.

Anyway, I was teaching my DC about different animal classification; amphibians, reptiles, etc. When I got to mammals I said, "All mammals produce milk and..."

My oldest DS (who was, I think 7 at the time) interrupted me and EAGER to correct me he boldly stated,

"Not all mammals!"


"I'm a mammal and I don't produce milk."

OK, so I can sometimes be wrong too. Which Law is that Just Mom?

Only one more day for the Summer Fun Love-Me-Knots Contest!

Summer Fun Love-Me-Knots Contest
Hello everyone, I hope your having a great summer, and what would summer be like without a little fun...a little CONTEST FUN?! Yep, I'm having a contest, a Summer Fun Love-Me-Knots Contest.

Love-Me-Knots is owned by two very talented mommies, Melissa and Dawn. You can read more about how their business and how it got started at their Love-Me-Knots Blog.

Since I have two daughters who love bows, yesterday I had them go shopping at Love-Me-Knots. They each picked out a lovely, colorful homemade bow.

Now, here's what you have to do:
  1. Go over to Love-Me-Knots and guess which two bows my DD picked.
  2. Then, come back here and comment your guess.
  3. The first one to guess both before June 30, 2007 wins!
*Since it might be hard to guess both of the bows, if you guess at least one of them, your name will be entered into a drawing.
**If you blog about this contest and let me know, your name will be entered again!

The winner will be picked June 30, 2007.

The winner will receive these
3 Brand New Summer Fun Bows!

So hurry up and head on over to Love-Me-Knots and let the Summer Fun Contest begin!

The Icing on the Cake
Yesterday for Father's Day I attempted to make a Father's Day cake. Usually I grease the cake pans and then line them with parchment paper, but we were out of parchment paper, so I tried wax paper instead...HUGE MISTAKE! When I tried to remove the cake from the cake pans, they split and crumbled.

Trying not to get discouraged, I started to making the icing. V (my 2yo DS) comes in the kitchen eager to help.

V: "Mommy, can I help you mix?"

Me: "Sure Sweetie!"

So, we take turns mixing the icing until it was time to frost the cake.

V: "Mommy, can I help dec'rate the cake?"

Me: "Oh Sweetheart, let Mommy do it PLEASE. After I'm done you can put the sprinkles on though."

V: "K Mommy!"

Under better circumstances I would have let him help, but instead he just sat watching me patiently while I was literally patching the cakes together and I wasn't very successful.

Anyway, I was done! Of course there was icing all over my fingers. As I approach the sink to wash my icing filled hands, I take a quick lick before turning on the water.

That was it, V stood on the chair reaching for the almost empty icing bowl, looking at me with his smiling bright eyes nodding his head and then said, "Mommy can I help you lick the bowl?!"

I was tickled pink, "Mommy can I help lick the bowl?" so of course I OKed it, which was another mistake. Somehow it seemed like he was licking non-stop, but I knew there was hardly anything in the bowl.

Well, as patient as he was waiting while I frosted the cake and as cute as it was asking if he could help lick the bowl (which btw, I wasn't licking) the licking must come to an end!

Me: (gently tried to tug the bowl away) "Alright Sweetie, that's enough."

V: (nodding his head yes and tugging back) "Mommy, can I help you lick the bowl?"

Me: (still tugging at the bowl) "Mommy is done, you don't need to lick the bowl anymore."

V: (nodding head and tugging) "Mommy, can I help you lick the bowl?"

Me: (one last gentle tug) "No, no more licking the bowl, we're done."

V: (releasing the bowl) "OK Mommy, thank you for letting me help you lick the bowl."

Our tug of war match was over and it was time to serve the most embarrassing looking Father's Day cake ever. I must admit though, it looked awful, but it tasted great, especially the icing on the cake.

I hope you all had a Blessed Father's Day!

My New Blog Makeover
Hello fellow bloggers, I just got a New Blog Makeover from BareFoot Blog Designs by the very talented MommyDearest. I LOVE IT! Thank you Dawn!

I don't know what it is, but when my blog looks purdy, I seem more organized. I get more things done and blogging seems so much more enjoyable. OK, that sounds strange I know, but what can I say, ummm...I'm strange?!

Anyway, come back soon because, I'm gonna be having a contest! Plus you'll come back because, you Love Me or Love-Me-Knots! (hint hint)

Computer Woes, Rashes, and Homeschooling
I haven't been able to blog in a while because, I've been having some troubles with my laptop, but fortunately I was able to get a new one.

As far as my DC, everyone is better, but they now have some kind of rash that isn't poison ivy or poison oak, but is making them itch...and just to reassure you, it isn't chicken pox!

As far as homeschooling goes, we are slowly but surely getting back into it. I have to say, they are doing really good considering we haven't been able to do it for so long. I just pray we'll be able to stick with it.

I think I'll stop rambling and go to bed now.
