***a hint to

Followed closely by this one: If you two don't cut it out, I'm going to tell your father when he
But it's the things that I never even thought I would say that surprise me the most. The things that I could never dream of that, in retrospect, make my heart smile. Like these:
And perhaps the oddest parent-ism to date, and strangely enough, it happens to be the one I say the most often.
You see, Bryan is in Mrs. B's Busy Bees class at school. And if you misbehave, rather than moving a conduct clip, or pulling a color-coded card, Bryan's class has to move a bee from the hive each time they are reprimanded in class. Bryan's bees are constantly buzzing all over the place. So much so that we have had some pretty interesting notes sent home, some of them all-but-begging for help, for us to help get Bryan's conduct under control. And up until now, it has been really hard for us to understand why our sweet soft-spoken little Bryan has been having so much trouble behaving at school. I say *up until now* because yesterday he brought home something that could explain everything. Instructions: "Draw a picture of yourself at school." Apparently our precious baby boy transforms completely once he gets to school! At least he keeps his precious green eyes! :o)

Or maybe it was just the perfect day for some fun 'running' pictures.

Bryan finished his basketball season tonight with the league's annual "Fun Night". I love "Fun Night"! There are snacks for the kids, balloons everywhere, and inflatables for the kids to jump on.
And when the game is over, they have a reception area where the teams go for a small "banquet" and the kids get their trophies

So, my very dear friend, Amanda, has a little bloggy bit she calls "You Know You Are The Mother Of Boys When..." that I just think it is too fun so I thought I'd introduce a little spin off here on my blog.
You know you are a mommy of many when:
- In order to conserve hot water and keep the hot water tank from running out, each person in the house is scheduled a specific time of day that they can bathe.
- Assigned seating at the dinner table, in the car and on the couches in the living area is a normal aspect of your day-to-day operations.
- You refer to everyday life as "day-to-day operations".
- You have more than one child with the same nickname.
- Two of your children get into an argument and when you can't figure out which one is fibbing, you send them into another room to "get their story straight" reminding them that whoever is at fault will be punished. When they return, they have both come to the conclusion that it was the child who was sitting beside you on the couch the whole time that was responsible for starting the fight.
- Deep down inside you are proud of your two children for being able to come up with something so brilliant in order to keep one another out of trouble.
- You go to work in order to "have some me time".
- You return home from work and receive so many "welcome home hugs" that it takes you nearly 10 minutes just to take your shoes off!
