Memories Captured

I’ve never hidden the fact that I’m a nose picker…

Yup, for those of you who may be new to my page or somehow have skipped my declarations for my love of boogers, it’s true…

I love to pick. I like boogers.

But don’t worry…I don’t eat them. Because that? Would be crazy…

I will admit to trying to hide my love of picking from my kids, since I don’t want them ridiculed by others for digging and I do want them to have manners…

So when I caught Jack picking his nose at the dinner table I immediately sent him to his room for being disgusting…

As an apology he drew me this…


And he even left me a little something on the paper…

Why on earth would he wipe a booger on the paper?

Everyone knows that behind the bed is the best place…

Right?

The Armpit Sniff

This is me sleeping peacefully….


And this is the crazy shit that woke me up the other day….


That’s Jack….

With his head in my armpit….

J—Ja—Jack! What the heck are you doing? I say…groggy and confused and tired since it’s six in the morning….

Oh Mommy! I just love to smell your armpits!

And no, he wasn’t sleepwalking…he was wide awake and nose deep in my armpit funk…

And yes, we are saving for his therapy*…

*kidding! Jack is totally normal, he doesn’t need therapy!**

**Right?

Magnificent!

Sometimes I worry about Jack…

Not because I think he’s going to turn out to be a serial killer or flasher…

Not because I sometimes worry he’s so weird that it turns off the other kids at school…

Not because I wonder if one day he’ll need therapy because I may or may not have forgotten to plan the birthday party he’d been asking for*

But because he seems to have a thing¬†for me…

Sure, I know all boys love their mothers…

I get it…

But do all boys enter their mother’s bedroom and say…

Mom, I know I’m not supposed to walk in on you when you’re dressing, but I just wanted to see your big boobies…because Mom? They are magnificent!

Yup, you heard it here….my saggy boobs? Magnificent!

So I’ve decided to ignore the what the fuck¬†portion of this conversation and concentrate on both his admiration of my magnificent breasts and his budding vocabulary**…

What do you think? Too weird?

*I was totally up shit creek until he mentioned today he also wants a 3DS, and after telling him he can’t have a party and an expensive toy he opted for the 3DS…SAVED! Phew…I can now save his therapy money for shoes…

**and who says public schools are worthless? ha!

My Kids Right Now…

Do you ever look at your kids and think, Wow…I want you like this forever…I want to remember you exactly as you are right now in this moment…

Yeah, me too…

And luckily Alison from Mama Wants This and Galit from These Little Waves do too…

So they are hosting a super cute linky where we are doing just that…

Here are my children…as they are right now…for better or for worse…

First up, Blake…

Next, my sweet Jackie Jacks…

Here you have Hope…which would explain the “for worse” comment above…

And my baby…my Brooke…the baby we didn’t know we were missing…

Those are mine…all mine…how did I get so lucky?

Did you link up?
