Notes to Self

Note #1 to Self:
Do not turn on a video for Jaden since he woke up early from his nap, and go back to my own bed and sleep for 30 minutes, since Jaden just might find a packet of spicy Buffalo sauce from Chik-Fil-A, open it himself, and consume contents, only to run in and wake me up crying, sticking out his tongue and frantically slapping it to relieve the pain. No more videos for him while I continue napping.

Note #2 to Self:
Do not turn on a video for both boys to watch for 30 minutes since I want to continue napping, assuming they will be fine, since their daddy just might return home early from work and find two unsupervised boys sitting on the couch and daddy just might think this happens all the time.

Note #3 to Self:
If you decide to go to Costco and take an unruly child with you, make sure it is at 11am on a rainy Wednesday (when everyone is at home), and bring a Dum-Dum Lollipop for the said child to suck on in between the sample stations. Make sure you bring an extra t-shirt and pair of pants since he will likely spill at least 6 samples all over himself and you have to return to Micah's speech therapy session with your newly soiled, sopping wet, sticky child for everyone to stare at.

Note #4 to Self:
Make sure you go to bed before 11:59pm each night so that #1 and #2 don't happen, and be sure that nobody from Child Protective Services reads this blog.

(P.S. For the record, I sleep with one eye open, and my house is only 800 square feet, so they were literally like 8 feet away from me the whole time. My brain is wired to immediately wake up when I hear the credits running) :)


  1. Okay. I laughed out loud and had tears in my eyes. So funny! I love the spicy packet. I can picture my girls doing that. :)

  2. Goodness!!! You have the most adventurous days!!!! Too funny!!!

  3. Jaimie...I love you! You are so funny and you are chronicling these young years with your boys so well! How funny???? Haven't had that happen yet, but I did leave the vicks vapor rub out once when Rachel was sick and she came out in the hallway after being put to bed with it all over her face and eyes...ugh...bad mistake...:-)
