Random Tid Bits

  1. We went to go spend time with Grandma and Grandpa - my parents.

    Isaak to Grandma, "I just love your muscles." Grandma laughing, "That's fat. Not muscle!" We all laughed.

    Mica to Grandpa, "Grandpa you smell like wood." Grandpa, "Ok...what kind of wood?" Mica, "A hard wood." Grandpa, "Like Oak?" Travis, "Like Hickory Dickory." Grandma kept laughing because Mica kept talking about Grandpa smelling like hard wood. Then I started laughing because Grandma was laughing so hard. Then Travis started laughing. Mica sat there with a confused look on his face. 

  2.  Mica gets all annoyed that I come home with berries every day. He's like, "How many berries do you really need? We have a ton!" Travis respond with, "Mica it's free food." I respond with, "We need food throughout the winter too. There are no berries in the winter time. These berries will only last a little while, not even through the whole winter." He's like, "I really don't think you need to pick any more berries Mom." 

  3. I keep picking these whiteish mulberries that are completely ripe.

  4. I asked Mica to pick raspberries. He went out, and came back in the matter of a few minutes. I said, "Mica what are you doing son? Is there a problem?" He said, "I just didn't think of the fact that I'm a bee and wasp magnet with what I'm wearing. I'm going to change shirts!" I said, "Ok. As long as the job gets done. ;)" Isaak yells out, "Mica I don't think it works that way!" *Yes the kid is all elbows, and does this dorky pose when I ask to take photos of him! 

  5. We have a car commercial here in Omaha for a car place called H & H.  They have Hannah and Hailey as their people for their commercial. 

  6. Isaak said, "Those two are Photoshopped!" Mica said, "Isaak they are twins." Isaak swears back that they are Photoshopped. My sister said, "They have different boobs. Yes I've examined them." She's a certified Lactation Consultant. LOL!

  7. I ran across the shirts below on FB. No, I have no idea where they came from. Let me know, and I'll source them. They so fit my parenting style. I wish I could wear them to Parent Teacher Conferences. Sorry if they offend you. They are really just a joke.

Those shirts are funny.

And your sister?!?! Has she really examined them? Or was she just being silly?

I love berries! You can send some my way! Especially raspberries. Yum!

@Mandy - She really examined them. Ha! Mainly because all they show in the commercials is their top halves. Plus like I said she's a certified lactation consultant. Boobs are more ummmm for feeding to us than sexual objects. My sister breastfed for probably over 9 years of her life I'm guessing. She had 4 kids. Each breastfed for about 2 to 2 1/2 years. With my special needs nephew she pumped all the time. I breastfed for 4 1/2 years. Both of my boys were over 2 when I stopped with them. Good thing too - Mica got a Staph Infection at 7 months in his neck, and Isaak got Meningitis at 2 months. They needed the antibodies.

Those are my kind of shirts!

I freeze a lot of berries for winter too, though I didn't get very many mulberries this year. I think most of the birds gobbled them up before I had a chance to pick them off of my neighbor's tree (she doesn't pick them so I take what I can from her yard).
