Riding in Cars With Kids

Friday, April 4, 2014

Let's start by releasing some photos that have been trapped on my phone for a few days now...




Words can't begin to describe how delicious this pizza was. It was the cheesiest, meatiest, (perhaps greasiest) thing I've ever tasted.




So last weekend I had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with the two little ones you see above, my nephew and niece, Knox and Lola. I was reminded once again that moms have the hardest job in the world and that kids are crazy.  Just CRAZY.

I found myself saying things to Knox I literally thought I'd never have to say to another human being in my life. Things such as...

Please don't feed the fish nickels and dimes. It will probably kill them.

Knox, don't put your pancake on your face.

Hey Knox, did you just dump the bag of Pirate Booty on your head? Okay. Why did you do that?
*If you've never had Pirates Booty you are missing out! Google it and find it. It's delicious. 

Will you grab dog from the toilet?
*Dog is his blanket. He likes to swim in the toilet apparently.

Are you licking my mascara? Don't lick my mascara.

Don't jump on the ipad, okay?

Nope, wiping is your mom's job. I'll find her.

You probably shouldn't put that sunflower seed in your nose.

Don't eat that sunflower seed you just put in your nose.

Let's not use the phone charger as a rope.

Knox, don't eat Lola's doll.

And that's just a few things that had to be said within a 48 hour time span. I can't imagine how parents do it day in and day out. Children are maniacs. I'm worried I might just not be cut out for them.

And there we go. It's time for another weekend. Thank God.

  1. So now I've been reading your blog for the past week, and every single post I read is hilarious. How is that possible? And I'm the one my friends say DOESN'T even have a sense of humor, so the fact that I snort out loud at least once in every post of yours is quite a statement. I almost wet my pants when I read the one about your dad's foot getting run over. That has happened in my family before, too, and it was not pretty.

  2. I first had pirates booty over 10 years ago. My mother in law would always pack it for our drive home. I could never find it anywhere down south till about 6 years ago and the addiction stuck!

  12. Oh man, my nannying days had me saying all sorts of things I never wanted to have to say out loud — Your feet don't belong there, get that out of your mouth, we keep our pants on in the kitchen. Kids are fun. Have a nice weekend!

  15. Nah- you're just not cut out for someone else's kids... No one really is, unless of course, they have to be.. !! We once babysat two little ones for not even a full weekend, and it was the hardest thing we ever did. We have a one year old and I still feel like nothing compares to that weekend.. (minus breastfeeding.. those first couple of months.. that hurt.)

  17. So funny...I had a similar experience recently when we took our niece for a day out in London...she asked so many sodding WHY questions in the space of eight hours that I had to write a post on it...I wonder if I'm cut out for it too? The older I get the less patience I have for the little crazy things?!

  18. Ah, kids really are crazy & I love them. You'd think they get less weird but my 7 year old nephew gets weirder every single time I see him, I swear.

  19. LOL, kids ARE crazy, but they are fun to have for just a wee bit hours. It´s the great thing about being an aunt

  21. Yeah its so much fun with the kids in the car but also some risk on your travel.Everyone has its own point of view and owns mind.Some people not like to travel with the kids because they make noise or any other reason.But i like to travel wot the kids.So if you have any problem with your car so visit vin checker.
