I Love You, Honey! (or The Secret to Father's Day)

Howdy Folks-
Ready for Father's Day?

I am!
We bought his present,
have pancake batter on hand,
the cards are signed and I am ready
to hand over the Littles!

What?!
It's HIS day, right?

Wrong!

For all of you single ladies (all my single ladies)
and for you newlyweds-
Here's the low down-

Ready?
Cause I am about to rock your world....

Father's Day is really

MOTHER'S DAY....THE SEQUEL!!

I have been a mom now for going on sixteen years
and this is what I have figured out-

Mother's Day is a day for Dad to take the wee-ones and let you have some time to yourself.
Father's Day is a time for Dad to spend some QT with those precious little
rays of sunshine in your life!!!

Ere go...
BONUS!
You get an extra day for yourself!!
Wow- 
Who knew that becoming a baby factory could be so rewarding?
(Too bad you can't "cash in" days per kiddo- )

Really, I'm making the pancakes 
drinking the coffee, chatting it up a bit 
and 
THEY ARE OUTTA HERE!

Either the zoo- and if it rains- movies and 
(well honestly, I don't really care where they go- just as long as 
they bring dinner back with them):)

I am still working on the Etsy Shop-
I have stuff listed- but have to wait for PayPAl to send me something and I have to 
send it back and then I am done.
I will post that link- 
I am excited!
I'm in the middle of a project for "my girl" (Holla) Morgan- it is awesomeness in a granny square-
I will have to share that when I am done.:)

I have some other craziness (imagine that)
to share with you

Did you see this picture?


I was just wandering around my classroom
looking for something to post about one day
and I thought to myself
"Self, you should take a picture of your crayons."
And since I always listen to myself
I did.
And I posted it about a month ago here on the blog-a-roo.
So someone pinned it- gave credit- did it the right way- whoop whoop
and look at this....UNBELIEVABLE!!!





 My crayons are like Movie Star Crayons!!!

Man, if I had a dollar...

No, really- that would be a lot a dollars- :)
That is just wacky to me!

I have gotten so many great ideas from Pinterest and blogging~ 
now I feel a little better- knowing that I 
"Gave Back" a little-

Tomorrow is another Relaxation Day
then Monday I have to get myself on the ball-
I am still jet-lagged from my trip
(hee hee that is what I keep telling the MR-
my trip was in the same time zone.....ain't I a stinka??!?!?)

Have a wonderfully relaxing day tomorrow:)

  1. I have my colored pencils in those exact same containers!!! Only my labels are white and written in the colors that are in the drawers! How funny! I love them though though! They are the perfect size and help keep everything organized nicely!!

  4. Hahaha Squirrels, you crack me up.

    As soon you have your Etsy up and running, definitely let me know and I'll follow/favorite you on there!

    There was a class I was in for a week and the kids desperately needed new crayons and she had unlabeled tubs (gasp, I know! And she's my buddy too...hmmm maybe I should hook a girl up...) anyway, she had her crayons bundled up and kind of organized like that. I replenished the kiddos crayons and they were sooo excited!

  8. oh that's what it is...I am jet lagged from your trip too. Now I understand.

    I am SO doing that crayon idea. I saw it on pinterest and had NO idea it was yours until I read Going Nutty under it. It's GENIUS.

    Happy Father's Day to you!

  14. I wish I had known this - I've been doing it wrong for 12 years! My husband's Father's Day gift was a 3 day trip to a handgun course in Texas. I got breakfast in bed and homemade cards for Mother's Day...hmmm there seems to be some inequality in my house - I am going to have to address this when he returns - and I'm going to blame it all on you :P

  15. I totally have this pinned! I pinned it because it's a great idea. I actually found your blog through the Oh'Boy 4th Grade link. So weird, lol.

    Cute blog and again, awesome idea with the crayons. This will really help when the kiddos are telling me I don't have any more yellows and I know I do! haha
