I know my job is to entertain you and believe me when I say I want to continue doing that, but I can't without some action on your part. You see if you subscribe to my blog which I super appreciate and you receive my content via Google Reader which most people do then, at the end of the month, I'm going to disappear! Well, actually Google Reader is going to disappear. I'm going to stay right here and keep on truckin' but I'll be super lonely without your smiling face keeping me company on this journey.
On the highway leading to or going away from Podunk there is an objet d'art that my children search for every time we travel that highway. He's a white bear that continually waves at the drivers of 69 highway. The story, as I was told it, is that the man who created the bear did so on accident. He was actually trying to put in a backyard garden but kept hitting rocks, as he tilled up the earth. Every time he dug up another one he stacked it in a pile at the edge of his property facing the highway. After awhile he noticed that the pile of rocks sort of looked like a bear! So he did what any normal person would do, he covered that pile of rocks with concrete and created the waving bear.
Back in the day (when I was a kid) he used to paint the bear brown in the Spring and then white in the Winter. But these days he's just white all year long. It just makes him easier to spot, I think. So if you're traveling towards Podunk keep a look out for the waving bear and make sure you wave back! Pin It
Well, it's Father's Day and since the Hubby IS a father he felt it was his turn to choose the musical selection this weekend. He wanted "Big Balls" by ACDC or "Big 10 Inch Record" by Aerosmith but that's just really dirty sounding and not at all celebrate-y. So I vetoed his selections! Pin It
Trash Day (Otherwise Known as I Needed to Get Some Housekeeping Done) is a semi-regular feature here on the blog. It will be characterized by a complete lack of story structure and will most likely be a collection of random thoughts, announcements and miscellaneous housekeeping tasks. Welcome to the inner workings of my mind.... Pin It
4.) What are you eating? Share a yummy summery recipe.
Our green smoothie fascination began in March (I know I'm behind the trend but I live in Kansas, so what do you expect?) and I was less than confident about presenting a spinach laden smoothie to my group of very picky eaters, but I was also desperate.
Hi and welcome to my blog. "Because I'm the Mommy" is the story of how I deal with a set of twins, an autistic daughter and my complete exhaustion; all while trying not to mainline caffeine, lose what's left of my sanity and strangle the little darlings in the process! Big picture--I really think parents need to lighten up; I mean, if parenting was meant to be a serious endeavor they'd offer classes!
