The worst mom in the universe

Marysa and I had a fight this morning. According to Marysa I am...

The worst mom in Utah. I tell her some of her toys are being taken away.

She doesn't like me. I tell her your grounded


In her words. " I am not grounded you are. I am going to call your mom and tell her you are being me. I will I know her phone number. " I just laugh


I am the worst mom in the universe. I walk out of the room. I tell her I am done talking.

I think I must be doing a great job if I earned the worst mom in the Universe award.

The ward Christmas Party.

This wonderful story takes place about a month ago.

I think it was a Friday. I was excited for this night to come. One I would not have to cook dinner. 2. Caleb and Marysa were going to sing a song.

We all got ready and went to the ward Christmas party.

It was time to eat. So I get in the long line. I wait my turn.

As I am waiting. I am also keeping track of Josh and Azalea. I am talking with friends in the line.

I turn to see Azalea's diaper on the floor. Yes it is on the floor. She is in a dress and had taken it off. I go to grab the diaper. As I do this she starts walking. What does she do. She raises her dress to above her waist.

Remember she has no diaper on. I run to get her. Leaving Josh in the line. I go to the table where my husband is. He take her and puts her diaper on her.

I sure hope know one noticed. It all happened so fast.

Buy the way Caleb and Marysa did awesome on their solo. They stood up in front of the whole ward and sang. Oh you better watch out you better not cry.

Oh how I love my kids. Even when they go around diaper less in public.

They must really want me to write a book.

It was around 9:00 pm. The older kids were sound asleep in their beds. Azalea was fighting going to sleep. Josh was awake he had a late nap.

Andrew and I worked hard all day rearranging the living room. It really did take most the day. We were tired. We just wanted to sit down and watch some TV.

Azalea was still having a hard time going to sleep. I could hear her and Josh play right be hind me.

They are 2 feet away.

All of a sudden we hear some type of liquid spelling. We turn to see Josh peeing on the floor.

We both smile at each other. More like laugh.

Azalea had taken off Joshua's clothes and his diaper.

He takes off . I chase after him so I can get him dressed.

I find him in the girls room. I see only his backside and noticed that he was poopy too.

Not again

I am not sure I want to write this post. I want to cry I want to laugh. In the end you can either cry for me or laugh.

It was just after dinner. I am trying to get things done. After all I need to run to the laundry mat tonight because my dryer just takes to long to dry. Who has time to wait around for 3 hours for one load of laundry. In my madness to get the clothes washed so that I could then take them to laundry mat. I was only half listening to the little ones. I could hear them playing what I thought was the bedroom.

I need to run into the bathroom for something and as I opened the door what did I see. I saw a naked 19 month old standing in the sink. A naked 3 year old standing on the toilet. Yes that is right they are both naked.

Are you laughing yet because it gets better. Here comes the not again part. I am not kidding I could write a novel about yesterdays subject. Cause not only were they naked but they both not just one but both had I am not sure if I can even write it. Here it goes. Their naked bums were poopy naked bums.


Me too how did the 19 month old take off his diaper. His partner in crime took it off along with hers. I am sure she was thinking that mom really wants to write her novel so lets give her another story to write about.

Just shortly after this happened I went into the girls room and there was Josh and Azalea getting into Marysa's play make-up. Josh had lip gloss all in his hair.

So we put the child gate up so the two partners in crime could serve there time at living room arrest.

So I will laugh and not cry.

Family Night

This story is not for the faint at heart or those with a weak stomach. This story may make you gag, or it might make you laugh because it happened to me and not to you. I am sure when my kids are all grown I will be able to write a novel about this subject.

What is the subject you are asking.

Are you really sure you want to know?

Why don't you read the story and find out.

We decided to go out to dinner. Andrew was in the mood for a good buffet. So we ended up at Golden Corral. We were enjoying our meal. Did I mention I am trying to potty train a certain 3 year old. Any guess yet on the subject. As I was enjoying my plate of mashed potatoes. Oh how I love mashed potatoes. I noticed that Azalea peed on her seat so I of course cleaned it up after all it was just pee. Just as I finished cleaning that up. And yes I was going to let her sit in her peed panties. After all she was standing on the seat eating. I turned just for a moment and this is the part where if you have a weak stomach you should stop reading.

When I turned back to her I noticed yes poop on the seat. I grabbed a napkin and picked up the poop picked up my 3 year old and headed straight for the bathroom. Praying that nothing "else" would fall. Would you know this would happen when It was just me and the little ones at the table. Not sure what to do I ran to the bathroom with Azalea leaving Josh at the table hoping I would run into Andrew, Caleb or Marysa. It was Marysa who I ran into. So quickly I said go to the table and watch Josh. Oh how I love that Caleb and Marysa are old enough to help out.

So I made it to the bathroom with nothing "else" falling to the ground. I frantically pulled down the changing table. Pulled down her princess panties (which by the way are currently in the golden corral garbage). As I pulled it down of course it got all over her legs and some Flew out of her panties and I mean it flew out. I think It "it" landed in about 3 different places.

Wipes I need wipes. Oh there is only about 3 left. This is a 100 wipe change. Thank goodness for paper towels, soap and water. It did the trick. I cleaned off the 3 year old cursing in my head that she is going back in diapers and that I hate potty training. I cleaned of the changing table with soap and water. After all "the stuff" did land on the Changing table. It make it worse some lady came into the bath room and when straight to a stall and started throwing up. So here I am cleaning up the "mess" and hear some stranger throw up. So are you laughing so hard you are running to the bathroom to pee or are you running to the bathroom to throw up your self.

I waited to tell Andrew the story until he was done eating. When we got into the car Caleb says mom tell us the story now. So for about the next 15 minutes we talked about poop. Yes we did. The kids just laughed as I told story after story about poop. Hey they are the reasons I have story's about this subject. Marysa is still the queen of poop story's.

We had a wonderful family night.

1. went out to eat
2. Azalea poops
3. We talk about poop.
4. We go to the Provo Temple to talk about Eternal Families.
Just a funny thing. Andrew ask the kids if they had any questions about the Temple and Marysa ask "Dad how old is Phineas and Ferb" What where did that come from.

One day I just might right my novel about my adventures of ...

I hope you enjoyed yet another potting training moment.

My advice to you. Only have kids that are born potty trained.

And it came to pass..

The Nativity

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all athe world should be btaxed.
(And this ataxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called aBethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
To be taxed with Mary his aespoused wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her afirstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the binn.

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the aglory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you agood tidings of great bjoy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is aborn this day in the city of David a bSaviour, which is Christ the cLord.
12 And this shall be a asign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 aGlory to God in the highest, and on earth bpeace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with ahaste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

Our Christmas Memories 2008

We had a wonderful Christmas season that will last forever. We had fun with friends, saw family that we hadn't seen for awhile. We tried new things, continued traditions and celebrated Christ birth.

The girls were able to meet the Christmas fairy. Our local Macey's store invited the Christmas fairy to their store. We had a really fun time.

We were able to go the kids school and see them perform Christmas songs. Each grade got a chance to go on stage and perform 2 Christmas Songs.

We had a fabulous ward Christmas party. Were Caleb and Marysa performed their first duet by singing "Santa Clause is Coming to Town". They did a wonderful job.

We went and saw the Festival of Tree's in Spanish Fork. We started this tradition about 4 years ago. We love driving around seeing the Christmas lights and listening to Christmas music. This is a must for all. After we were done seeing these lights we drove to Thanksgiving Point to look at their Christmas Lights. After we stopped at McDonald's and had Ice Cream. We had a wonderful time spending time with my parents.

We went bowling with Andrews sisters and their families. I of course won. The kids had fun. Josh even got a chance to bowl. Thank goodness for the gutter ball rails.

We also were able to go Ice skating. This was a first for my kids. Even Josh was able to Ice skate. We had a so much fun Ice skating with Andrews family. One of the best things about the Christmas season is being able to spend time with family.

One Christmas Eve the children and Uncle Ryan acted out the Nativity while Uncle Todd read the story and Aunt Sarah played the piano. It was a wonderful experience and the kids were just adorable.
