Just Call Him "Mark Twain"

Ya’ll last week this little gem came home in Eli’s backpack.   It’s still a little unclear as to what the writing prompt actually was, but I sure did get a good laugh.  Only a little boy could come up with this kind of story.  I just hope that I wasn’t the inspiration with my food consumption habits.  

In case you can’t see it: Wons upon a time their wus a fat guy named bob  he ate alot of donuts and weighed 10,000 pounds.  And he was eating a big big ginormes 500 pound cake.  When he ate all of it he so fat he explodtid and all of the food flyed everywhere and at peppel ran/  He was back to life aet sum mmor.  He exploted ougin.  He went to the hospital hospitel to put it back to gather and he was fine but he went to this con test and he said let me do it please please and he got in the contest and won and ofter words he exploded the ind.

Translation: Once upon a time there was a fat guy named Bob.  He ate a lot of donuts and weighed 10,000 pounds, and he was eating a big, big, ginormous 500 pound cake.  When he ate all of it, he got so fat he exploded.  All of the food flew everywhere and people ran.  He was back to life and ate some more.  He exploded again.  He went to the hospital to put it back together, and he was fine.  But he went to this contest and he said, “Let me do it. Please, please.”  And he got in the contest and won, and after words, he exploded.  The End.

And for the record, if I ever eat so much that I explode, please do not put the fat back in.  Haha!

Now, should I be proud of his use of adjectives and descriptive language or should I be concerned that he might have serial killer tendencies…Bless it!  And for the record, he gets his spelling abilities from me, which is why I translated it so easily! 

Just kidding…he spells way better than I do.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
