Things I've Learned This Week....

and it's only Wednesday........

1.I've learned that when your anemic you should take your iron.

2. I've learned that there is a reason for those little pictures in the grocery store carts that show the picture of the kid standing and it is crossed out.

3.I've learned that I should invest in surgical glue it could save me from many weekly trips to the ER.

4.I learned that when people ask me if "were done" I should just say yes! This would save myself the embarrassment of trying to explain myself and yell over my kids screaming and throwing a fit.

5.I've learned that my 9 yr old son is really good at baseball, just look at the front of my house and the broken window.

6.I've learned that I shouldn't waste my time on writing a long To-Do list for my husband.

7.I've learned that I shouldn't tell my husband "no flat bills on the green" when he's leaving to go golfing and know that my jokes aren't funny when I'm the only one laughing.

8.I've learned that if I don't write it down right away I will forget about it. I've learned my friends love me even though I am a flake.

9. I've learned not to try and tell my husband my job is harder than his.

10.I've learned that I need a chiropractor after all.

11.I've learned that dogs are a lot of work.

12.I've learned that I can teach my dog to sit but I can't teach my kids to pick up their dirty clothes off the floor.

13.I've learned that my daughter is very honest even if it hurts my feelings.She's just like her mommy.

14.I've learned that you shouldn't order a bathing suit online.

15.I've learned that swimming laps in the morning before the kids get up is hard to do but feels so good when I'm done.

16.I've learned that when I get out of the shower and am wearing just a "tiny" towel I better be ready to greet whoever the kids let in the house.

17.I've learned it's easier to just throw away the lunch sack that has been left in the car for days instead of trying to clean it out.

18.I've learned that I shouldn't buy things through the drive thru dairy anymore just because it is convenient and I'm to lazy to unload all the kids.

19.I've learned that letting the kids go swimming at 9pm isn't something the neighbors approve of. We homeschool and it was hot!

20. I've learned that with all these sick babies I've been reading about on blogs that my heart breaks for them and their poor families.I am so thankful for my healthy babies and it reminds me to hug them and love on them even more.

NEVER buy a bathing suit online!!! And my hubby ALWAYS asks when he's about to leave the bathroom if anybody's here. And my response is always the same "Yeah, we're having a party here." I don't tell good jokes either. :) #20 is so true. I thank God every day for my whiny, crabby, complaining, picky eaters. Hope the rest of the week in less knowledgable. :)

It is very refreshing to know that others have STUFF they have to deal with...not just me. I sometimes get that "I am ALONE" feeling, until I read blogs like yours. Thanks for being so "REAL" is quite a treat!

I soooo need that surgical glue. When I was in the ER with Joshua I was watching to see if the Dr was going to set it down....he didn't! Darn!
