the mom song & child rebuttal!

yes, im back but shhhh it's only for a second... i wanted to post this for all you parents out there!
enjoy =)

& here is the childs rebuttal to the moms song...

If you go to this site it has the lyrics to the childs rebuttal and also has some funny & informative stuff... Enjoy!

wow! It has been so long since I got on here.
Things here have been hectic. All the kids are back and we have been dealing with all the issues that come with that.
Do you ever hear that comment about stay at home moms... you know the one where we don't do anything but sit on our butt all day and eat bon bons while watching soaps???? Well I don't know who came up with that. but I would like them to take a look at my calendar with to do lists. lol.
When my kids were little there was sooo much to do. My kids are all 2 years apart, so there were many of times where I had 2 in diapers at the same time. things were choatic to say the least. When my youngest started kindergarten I thought, yes! now I will get some time for myself....haha.
Now my youngest is in middle school. 2 in middle school, and 2 in high school, and a 5 yr old stepson. Between doctor appointments, dentist appointment, eye doctor appointments, cheerleading practice, cheerleading games, bowling practice, bowling games, after school program, school assemblies, conferences... I am busy woman. then there is the grocery store run... do you realize how much a family of 7 eats???? I don't think my kids do. And then there is that rare day when I think "Oh yes, there is nothing going on today, I can sit around in my pjs and get some stuff done"... but no thats usually when i get the call from school..." can you come pick up _________ they are throwing
My husbands always says well you can come back after taking the kids to the bus and go back to sleep. I cannot do that , for the life of me, unless I come home and take an allergy pill... those always knock me out. For some reason once I get up, I just cannot for the life of me go back to sleep.
So since this a rant about being a stay at home mom, Id like to add this....
...Where do all the socks go? I mean seriously is there really a sock monster that eats them?
... why is it that I can pick up everybodys stuff in the living room in the am, and by the time I go to bed at night its all back. hard is it to throw trash in the trash container (yes that is why we call them trash containers, cuz they contain trash) instead of dropping it all around?
...Why the night before when I say " do you have anything for me to see or sign" there's nothing. But 5 seconds before we have to head out the door to go to the bus, miraculously 5 papers appear?
... why do teachers feel the need to send home a your child needs___ tomorrow, when i don't get the paper until 5 seconds before I head out the door to take them to the bus?
...Why do kids always have the uncanny knack of asking you something while you are the phone. yes my teenagers still do this... more so now since they think they can get away with it. And it is usually when your on an important call?
...why is it that everytime I go to my room to change or go to the bathroom, that is when the kids decide to have a wwf match in my living room, and think for some reason it is a magic wall and i cannot hear them?
...And my last one for today... why is it the kids will do the dishes and put them away dirty... thinking I will not see them, cuz of course its a magic cabinet and it hides them. then get mad becuase they are told to reclean them.

Well today is a busy day.. and what am I doing right now??? I am drinking hot cocoa and writing this amazing ( well okay maybe not so amazing) blog... but it is very
I am making homemade gifts for the family this year.. I got 2 completely done.. only 12 more to go. I think they are really cute though and can't wait to give them out... ( shhh don't tell they are the cookie sheet calandars) I need to go work on them , but have you ever cut out cardstock with scissors... not fun.. ouch! I have to take my son to the doctor today to get his toenail surgically removed for the 3rd time.. we are hoping 3rd times a charm! My oldest son has a bowling tournament today so we are going to pop over there for a few to watch him, before heading back to pick up my youngest daughter from the after school program. and i am hoping that my almost 18 year old daughter finds my memory card she miraculously "lost" outta my cell phone. it has been over a week, but she is being stubborn. The card itself was expensive but I have things on the card that I cannot replace. note to self, never leave the phone around 17 yr old daughter.
Tomorrow is my youngest daughters 1st school dance. I am excited and scared at the same time. This marks such a big step in her life. Fortunately her brother is in the middle school too, and thus gets to go to said dance... she's not happy about that. For some reason even though they threaten certain death to each other at home, he has gotten very protective of her around boys... so brother will be my chaperon (insert evil laugh here)

okay I need to go get some stuff done.... until next time

ps. since they have messed around with the disboards, its getting harder to find the disney-ish type of digital kits. I have moved over to, and have been doing the challenges there. they do post kits every once in awhile but it isnt like the links at the disboards. If anyone finds any, shoot me a link and I will post them =)

believing is only the begining

Oklahoma renaissance faire 2009

Well I promised I would come back and share with you the pics and about the Oklahoma renaissance Faire (okrf) in muskogee, ok. They hold it every year in the month of May. We usually try to go for mother's day, but this year it was pouring, so we went this last weekend on the 16th.
I guess it was pirate weekend but we had no idea there were themed weekends.
I made Kourtney and my dress back a year ago to go to the kansas city ren faire, which I heard was quite big, but we ended up not going. So Kourt was adamant about wearing the dresses this time. She of course just wants to be a princess and have people bow to her. She wouldnt even wear the beaded snood I made cuz she had to wear her
Anyways it was a little muddy(okay alot muddy... and I wore flip flops under my huge dress) But it didn't rain, and the temps were warm, not to hot , not to cold.
They have a really neat quest for kids to do, where the queen has lost her hair ribbons, and askes the kids to find them. Those that participate get to go at 4 and be knighted. Kourt started off doing this but didnt want to go ask about the ribbons, so we gave it up. Plus she decided she had to get a tuekey leg, and we spent a good portion of time looking for one. That thing was as big as her
We watched the joust, and looked in all the shops. They have such neat things there.
as we were going to see the mud men show- It is show where grown men play in the mud and tell a semi pg version of childrens stories, we have heard them do hansel and gretel and peter pan. it gets very muddy!-we passed by a nice lady that asked kourtney about her costume, and was asking me about how I made it. She told me that in 5 min. they were having a costume contest, and would love for kourt to particpate.... SHE WON!!! she was soo excited. they gave her 2 tickets to come back on the last day to compete in the grand finale costume contest, and let her go pick a tshirt for free. It took a little time so we had to run back to the mud man show.
They had just started but we didnt miss anything. Riley and kourtney went to sit up to videotape the show, and the guys gave riley alot of ribbing about sitting so close to them with mud.... We should have listened lol.
The guys introduced themselves and jumped off the stage ...into the mud. the first 2 guys.. not to bad, then comes this huge guy who tells everyone he is going to cannon ball. Everyone else including my daughter gets up and runs away.. not riley . he is such a trooper... he sits there still videotaping the show.. The man jumps off the stage and instead of cannonballing he kicks mud.. right at riley. Oh riley was mad. In the video you see riley cover and move the camera, then you can hear him say "go give this to mom" poor guy. He had mud every where. then the guys tell him.. we told you so. We wathced the show from way back behind lol. and then went in search of funnel cakes. Yum! i love funnel cakes. with strawberries. It was so good. I shared mine with hubby and kourt who was now mad we got funnel cakes "cuz noone told her we were getting them" after the search for the turkey leg... which by the way she is still holding onto cuz she can't finish it. I look over at riley and he is hoarding his funnel cake like someone is gonna steal it lol. We ended up sitting on the jousting bleachers since we couldnt find a seat. Hubby was so sweet he held it so I could eat it since we were on bleachers. He had powdered sugar all over him after words, but it was sweet!
Every other year we have gotten these really cool bottles that are filled with rootbeer, and you can bring em back and get refills for like $4, but this year they had a new place. Hubby bought us all one but Kourt and I didnt like em. They tasted like peppermint or something. It was homemade rootbeer. Hubby liked it though.
We went over to the kids section. Kourt got to talking to mother maggie. She is a storyteller there and also does face painting at the halloween feestival (which is another of my fave's!lol) so she told kourt that if she came back for halloween she would paint her face. They have a really cool treehouse in the childrens realm. kourt went in and told the guy she was running away. so the guy told her we could see her from down below she needed to get way up high. When she came back down. he told her she hadnt runaway for very long. and she just laughed.
We went back and watched the final joust, and decided to head out. On the way out we met bob the juggler he showed the kids a really cool top he put in their hands spinning. then kourt got to meet byron the bear.
Im so pleased on how our outfits looked. But let me just tell you they were heavy and kinda hot. as soon as we got out to the truck I changed into shorts. Since we were in muskogee and they have a little ceasars pizza, and we dont have one at all. We went to get pizza, and breadsticks. Yum! As we were sitting there eating we heard a loud bang. A big van going through the drive up window hit and bent the pillar holding up their awning.
Before leaving hubby stopped at hobby lobby for me. I absolutely love hobby lobby. It's my favorite store. One of the ladys that make costumes aty the faire gave me a tip on how to keep the eyelets from ripping out, the told me to sew string around edge and through the hold in the eyelet. Kourts had started to pull off, and she has to wear that costume for the contest on May 31st. So I got some more eyelets and thread... and drooled over some material. I decided that when I take kourt back Im going as a pirate. I have a costume i made but want to redo a shirt, as I saw some really cool one with slits up the arms so you can take that part off itf its too hot. so thats my project for this week.
I probably forgot a bunch of things. the people at the faire are so nice and the atmosphere is so fun. We love it!
Here's some pix for ya. Enjoy!

this is us in the castle on the kings throne.

Here's a few from the joust. I got a bunch but didnt want to bore ya guys.we were on the blue and white (good guys) side at the earlier one and when they finished the joust we eneded up being in the red and green (bad guys) section. Kourt still cheered for the blue and white knight. The wenches were the cheerleaders. lol
