Applebee's After Dark and other musings of a tween

Booze, chicks at the bar, lewd behavior, all on a Saturday evening and...

at the local Applebee's.

Ok, so, maybe there wasn't booze, chicks at the bar, or lewd behavior. This was the behavior my 9 year old daughter, Flower, "saw", what she cooked up in her head and swore off ever eating at an Applebee's again.

Let me explain.

Saturday is our day to eat out for dinner. The Hubs recommended Applebee's because he wanted to use a gift…

One Recipe, Three Meals

One Recipe, Three Meals

My crockpot has become a dear friend over the past 6 years... Pretty much when I started having kids. Its so easy to throw all your ingredients in, cover, and the let magic happen. Whether you work outside the home or from inside the home, there's nothing better than to smell the wonderful aroma of your dinner cooking and to know that all you have to do is grab a plate and fork. Sigh. There are a plethora…

10 Fun Summer Activities for Kids

10 Fun Summer Activities for Kids

I walked into a store today to pick up a picture frame and other nicknacks. After gathering my items and getting in line, an older lady looked down at my children (who were bouncing around like a couple of sugar-high human jumping jacks) and said, “I have two just like that. Well, my son has two just like that. I really think they should just have school all year round. Being out for the summer…

I've been venturing down to the beach just about daily helping to take care of my mom and I'm required to tote along my kids because well my moms the babysitter and she's out-of-order right now.

She has enjoyed seeing the girls but also has expressed how she may not fully regain her strength to watch my youngest.

Olivia is wide ass open full speed all day unless her eyes are…

dear self

Hey girl what up!!! Do you remember yesterday when you stepped out of your car and walked onto a broom brush and the pole came and popped you in the ear? see I feel you practiced very good self control when you had the urge to kill your 8 year old from her belly laughing so hard.

Although you restrained yourself from that you didn't do so hot last night with your night…

Cheap Board Games for Kids

Cheap Board Games for Kids

One day after school, I took the munchkins out for a treat. It was a sunny day and, as you may know, sunlight can do wonders for a person's mood! We stopped for a snack of cheese fries and ice cream- not the healthiest snack, but it's nice to splurge occasionally ;) After we'd filled our bellies and satisfied our cravings, we walked over to a Goodwill store nearby. The plan was to find me a good book…

They operate a shelter every Tuesday night and provide lunches for the next day.

Families and Fighting…Is It All Bad?

stop fighting My husband and I recently got into an argument and while of course I was right, as usual, I could not just walk away.  I knew that my kids were watching but I needed to express how I was feeling at that moment and don’t regret it.

Aren’t we supposed to save our arguments when…

Dance Party

dance party

It's a weekday and I don't feel like cleaning or cooking... although both of those things need to be done at some point! No, I feel the need to do something fun. Something that I don't really have to set up or tear down. Something that will make me laugh and possibly get in a little exercise at the same time. It's time for a dance party!

I have had multiple occasions when my children look at me as if to say,…

A Trip To The Mall

A Trip to the Mall

It had been a while since the last time Illy and I had gone on a date. Sure, we'd done things together as a family, but it wasn't concentrated time with just us. We checked out the calendar, selected a date, and put our names in the box. This was our date and Nothing was going to change that... hopefully. Well, the day finally arrived and, although I was already tired from a full day out with all three…

Top 10 Camping Items You Don't Need

I am not a camper.  Let me say it again in case I wasn’t clear: I am not a camper.  Give me a book and the beach over camping any day of the week.  Unfortunately, this year I was outvoted on our vacation destination.  This meant a week of bugs, heat, and no internet for yours truly.

The uninterrupted time with family is priceless and frankly there was still coffee,…

How To Stop Tattling

I adore my children but having all 4 of them home all summer can get a little crazy!  Plus my husband working in real estate has a pretty hectic and inconsistent schedule.  So it's a lot of mommy versus the 4 little monkeys.  One things that really makes me want to climb the walls is the amount of tattling.  Yes, I know for children (siblings at that) under 7 years old this is very common but it doesn't make it any less…
