Apparently I have a shopping cart obsession

So today it dawned on me..why aren't their brakes on shopping carts like there are on strollers where you can lock it into place so it doesn't roll away? Actually the problem I am facing is my lovely monkey of a daughter. If I stop the cart in the isle to grab something off of a shelf, Laila takes the opportunity to send Landon off with the cart. In other words she pushes the cart down the aisle, which I swear she is aiming for other shoppers to embarrass the crap out of her mom:) I suppose I could whip her into shape(not literally).. which I try...but we are in the phase of her not listening to a thing I say, regardless of her punishments. Anyway..I was just thinking today it would be nice to be able to lock the wheels.

well it's begun

My kids have been having little fights for awhile now. Usually it is if Landon knocks down something she is building. A few minutes ago they were throwing slaps at each other and Laila says, " put him back in your tummy" My first thought was awww how sad. I know she adores her brother but I can tell she is upping the anty with her blows. Good thing Landon had no idea what she said.

Want to know what they were fighting over??

I bought this today for the kids to play with outside. They were fighting over who got to sit on the box it came in.

I am pretty excited about this table. My kids always make a mess when they eat anything and I have to vacuum after each meal if I want the house to look decent. My plan is for them to be able to eat lunches outside on the table...minimal cleanup..yes!! This will be good for their art projects and Play dough too I think!

Jan Bennett is on her way over to drop off the check for our jeep...I am sad...but feel like our prayers have finally been answered. Be sure to honk(or wave) when you see me driving my new purple mini van.

Father's day

Today we had my parents over for lunch and then played ladder ball, which was Brad's father's day present. We played about 5 games and then it literally fell apart. I will be calling Target tomorrow to hopefully get our money back or get a new game. We resorted to playing with the hose and making a mess. It was fun!

Bedtime yet?

I haven't felt like blogging lately. Maybe I should have just waited until I had something interesting or fun to post. I guess I could tell how I just spent my last hour.

I took apart our vacuum because either Laila or Landon had put one of their plastic spoons in it. They love to play with the vacuum and since we have basically no closets in this house I can't keep them from messing with it.

I am kind of proud of myself because usually I will just wait for Brad to get home and make him fix things. However, we had bagel crumbs all over the house that needed to be cleaned up. I found a screw driver and went to work. I took apart way more than I needed to and didn't realize this until the end where I popped off two screws and the spoon was free. Oh well.

Then while I was vacuuming Laila thought it would be a good idea to go in her mom and dad's room and pee all over the floor. She has been peeing in her pants a lot lately just at home. She is making me crazy.

When I turned the vacuum off Landon was in the kitchen on a chair playing in our butter dish(with butter in it).

I got him cleaned up and found Laila coloring with purple crayon all over her bookshelf.

I am so done with today.
