Dysfunctional Wedensday!

It's Alive!
Me: I think tomorrow we will go the museum of natural science for a field trip. I think they have a dinosaur there.
Isaiah: A DINOSAUR! Is it alive?!
Me(lifts a brow): Isaiah, when was the last time you saw a live dinosaur?
Isaiah: Hahahaha! Oh yeah...never mind.

Juliusism Sunday!

The poor Juiceman had his first experience using "big people" got in his eyes. His panic and cries nearly broke my heart. Yes, he's the baby. And yes, he can be overly dramatic, because I do tend to baby him....a little. He was in the master bathroom when it happened, so I kept a clean, cold cloth on his eyes as he blindly stepped from the tub. From there, Daddy took over while I went to grab some pj's.

When I came back to the bedroom, I have a whimpering Julius wandering naked through my room like Stevie Wonder looking for his piano, "I can't find my pajamas, I can't find my pajamas!" I said, Your father has them. Go to Daddy!" He was fine five minutes later! Oh, the drama!!!

Dysfunctional Wednesday!

To Tuck, Or Not To Tuck In
Julius: You guys don't need to tuck me in tonight.
Me: *lifting a suspicious brow*
Julius: No, really.....I'm getting bigger now.
He leaves and Isaiah is stomping down the hallway, then Julius zips past him into our bedroom.
Julius(out of breath): I changed my mind....I want to be tucked in.
Isaiah(walks in): He only changed his mind, because I told him I was going to tell on him if he watched Total Divas on the tv in our room!

SMH! Yes, I really want my 6 year old watching half naked, ghetto chicks talking smack and beating each other up...NOT!  Way to Go Isaiah!

Juliusism Sunday!

The Boy Knows His History!

After annoying one of his teenage brothers, Julius runs down the hall into my room and turns on said teenager and says, "I have a yo-yo and I'm not afraid to use it." Ironically, the yo-yo was thought to have originally been created as a weapon by either the Chinese or Filipinos. 

Well done Grasshopper, well done!

Dysfunctional Wednesday!

Off His Kilter!
I was watching football with Paul and crocheting. At one point, I pulled the yarn....and I guess I nearly knocked him in the face and didn't know it.
Paul: Oh, my gosh! You nearly hit me.
Me: I hit you?!
Paul: No, I said nearly hit me.
Me: Oh, so what's your problem?
Paul: Well, I whipped my head back and snapped my neck. Now it hurts
Me(*snort): Really!! Take yer skirt off Sally, put on yer kilt and find your inner alpha male!

*whiny voice* "I whipped my head back and snapped my neck and now it hurts!!" Waaa!

 Feel The Bond!

Me: My tummy kind of hurts.
Julius: Mine too. It's kind of like were sharing the same moment!
Me(chuckling): Yes, that's how strong our bond is.

It truly is! I love this little guy!!

Dysfunctional Wednesday!

On the phone with my mother last night! She's the reason behind "Dysfunctional Wednesdays"!
Mom: So how is homeschooling going?
Me: Good. We are doing a unit on chickens. I/we are going to build a chicken coop and the boys are going to raise a few chickens.
Mom: Play with chickens?
Me: No...raise.
Mom: Braise? You're going to eat them?!
Me: No! *smh* (Trying to think of another way to word it) We are going to GROW chickens.
Mom: Oh!!! Well, is Paula Berendes Langill going to help you with that?
Me: Why would Paula help me with that? It's April Langill that raises chickens.
Mom(silent for a second): Oh!!!! I get it now. I thought you said "throw chickens" and Paula knows about that. You meant you're going to raise some chickens. I get it now.

She's special!

Juliusism Sunday!

 Brain Fart!
My cousin, Scott put this on his Facebook wall this morning. I just shared it with Julius, because he's a boy and the word "fart" is one of those words that cracks him up. However, after I read it to him...he didn't laugh. 

He said and I quote, "I do like farting jokes, but I'm just not getting this one. Maybe if it rhymed it would be funnier"! LOL!!!
