And the pooping baby saga goes on...

So today Audrey was drawing a picture of me, which is something she does on a regular basis (we are just now thankful it is on paper, instead of the walls) and then she draws little eggs inside my stomach and says "Look Mom, you can poop babies out too!" That was just great. So simple. Why didn't I think of that? Here is the actual picture, see the eggs in my tummy? BTW, I am not pregnant.

Does her Diaper make her butt look big?

So I am just going to throw out this question. Does her diaper make her butt look big? I am thinking so. Thoughts? Isn't it so funny how you can remember different times according to the styles. I remember in the 11th grade when we went to Disneyland and my mom wanted me to wear an "old school" mickey mouse shirt and I totally refused... flash forward to 2005 and Jen Garner wearing the same shirt and now it is the "Rave. Who knew! So this shirt will go down in the file with my bright pink florescent shirt and my tie-dyes :)

Our House!!

For those of you out of town... here is a pictures of our house! It's looking all springing, but don't worry the snow will be a coming!

Pooping Out Babies

We were watching Go Diego Go this morning and it had leather back sea turtles who were laying their eggs in the sand waiting for the light of the moon to hatch the eggs and return the wee babies back to the ocean sea... How natural, healthy and beautiful until my 4 year old, Audrey, yells, "Look Mom, the turtles are pooping out their babies!" So much for that!

Family History

Since this is my first family post, I decided to do something that one of my friends did, called "Photo Tag"

#1 Self Portrait

Yes, this might take you back to the 1970's photo of your mother in high school, but with the stress in my life, sometimes that "in the moment" pictures just should not be posted. Here is what I would look like had I graduated from high school in 1974! I am going to boot camp, 5 days a week, and just made a bet with my husband to not eat sugar for a month... so if you see me don't feed me! Maybe I will add a photo in 6 weeks ;)

#2 What are my kids doing right now:

Are you serious? I have been working on this blog all day, they are in bed. Well, I can honestly say that Ben is sleeping, as for Audrey and Emma, they are watching TV in my bed. I know, it is past 9, but they just sit so quietly when "Wow Wow Wubzy" comes on... who else is going to babysit them at this hour? Plus knowing what 1 out of 3 is doing is great :) I can tell you my husband is watching baseball on the couch.

#3 My Fridge

So I started this new thing at and am totally addicted to coupons and saving money on groceries. So much, that I have now been "hired" to work with the company on teaching mothers how to shop on a budget. Amazing, since I don't know how to budget! Plus, it seems like I always am shopping for a family of 10, instead of 5... hmm. I think that is one thing my mother taught me well, keep the fridge stocked!

#4 My Kitchen Sink

As usually my minions were able to unload and load the dishes before they went to bed. I have to say, it is "totally wicked" that my kids can do the dishes every day. So yes, my dishes are always done and Audrey will AJAX the sink. Did I mention they do the laundry?

#5 My Favorite Shoes

Are you kidding me, are there any other shoes? Manolo Blahniks, of course. I might not be able to afford them, but heck, they are always on my wish list. Right now I am into the ones of the right, Mladar, Patent leather pointed toe maryjane. 90mm thin covered heel. Leather sole. Lightly padded insole. Made in Italy. Retailing at Barney's of New York for a $575.00, does somebody smell a Christmas Present?

#6 My Favorite Room in the House

It's the balcony. The view is amazing and reminds me of places I have been and places I will go.

#7 Dream Vacation

6 days, 7 nights with my husband in Paris, France. Kids at the Grandparents.

#9 The Room I Spend the Most Time In

The room with the TV, are you kidding me. They call this "the great room" becuase it connects the living room with the kitchen... so where else would a mother of 3 be? I feed the kids, watch my soaps, eat my bon-bons, and then patiently cook dinner for my husband before he comes home from work... ;) Hey,. wait, I think that is Tyler's dream vacation.
