I’ve got lots going on that I want to tell you about but I have to show you this picture first.  I went into my bathroom and found this.


Clearly this was written by my 5 year old…because it’s her name in her 5 year old hand writing and my lipstick.  I called her in asked her if she did it (only because I wanted her to clean it up) and she said said it wasn’t her.  I just couldn’t help laughing.  I kept telling her she wasn’t in trouble and she wouldn’t admit to it.  The funny thing is that she doesn’t realize no one else would write her name on things in kindergarten handwriting! 


I’m hosting a chat at GDS on

Your daughter may be innocent... my older daughter used to write my younger daughter's names on things to try to get her in trouble! I would say the same thing you said to your daughter, but the older one admitted years later it was really her! :)

Thank you for the fun template Andrea!

Oh dear, it must be a five-year old thing. My youngest daughter wrote her name on the bathroom mirror in her big sister's lip gloss...and denied it, too! I do empathize with you. :)

Thank you for the wonderful template! :)

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?

  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.

  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
