Some Days I Want to Cry, Others I Have to Laugh…


Lucky for me lately, I have wanted to laugh.  My kids are so much fun to be with.  I would love to be able to say I sweetly cherish every moment, but that would be lying.  We do have a slight peppering of crazy, haul me off and commit me days, but most everyday is so fun.  Here is a step or to into my life.

Walking out of the grocery store today, I hear, “Mom, Annie is eating something.” There is my sweet Annie chomping away on a King-size Snickers…wrapper and all.  Did I buy her a candybar…NO!!!  I was honest; turned the cart back around; payed for the candy and then left.  It was a little embarassing.  She ate part of the barcode.  A girl after my own heart.  I LOVE Snickers!!!…and yes, I laughed.


When Hudson was smaller it was funny to us (I know we can be immature some times) to blame him when other people in the family passed gas.  It was very light-hearted with a mention of barking spiders and such.  We didn’t do it much, but he remembered and learned.  It was great until one day in church, Hudson passes gas, VERY LOUDLY, then turns to me and says, “Mom, was that you?…I think it was.  That was a really big one.”  It is one thing to actually be caught by your kid and publically humiliated(For the record, our buns were sealed).  It is 10 times worse, when it wasn’t you and you can’t convince anyone around that it really wasn’t you.  You can’t argue with a 4 year old during sacrament meeting about that one.  Who would believe that a kid that young would actually try to frame someone else?  And yes, I did laugh, quietly of course.

    That is too funny! These kids of ours are too smart. Once in sacrament, when Sabrina was also younger, she passed gas and quickly turned to Jordan and said, “Oh daddy, did you toot (that is what we call it), that was a smelly one. Wow!” It was even funnier when Jordan had to stop and think if it really was him. Ah, the things we remember about sacrament :)

    I love that kid more and more. He has Blattman genes for sure! Barking spiders are caught roaming around our house quite often.

    That is so funny. I saw her eating the snickers bar and almost turned around and asked if you knew she had it and then thought no Jessica sometimes gives them treats like that I’m sure she gave it to her. Sorry I should have listened to my instincts. Also thanks for the tip, I will never blame Carter for gas passing that is not his.
