Sock Therapy?

i ordered these cute little socks for my little jaxon and I was so excited when I came home and saw the package in the mailbox.  He, of course, took one look at them and HATES them!  "I don't want these socks, I want my socks!"  Today I found them hid behind the swinging dining room door.

What the heck is the deal with my kids and their socks??  Wonder if our insurance pays for sock therapy?

Another day, Another Dollar!

the year of 2011 has so far been a big one for starbucks.  first they announce they are changing their logo and now, starting today in the great state of texas, among others, we can now get a super sized amount, the Trenta, of our favorite iced coffees!  however I am totally bummed that we don't have a starbucks in our town, otherwise I would be running out this a.m. to snatch one of this up, just because.

after preheating my oven i kept smelling a burnt rubber stench.  i continued whipping up my cornbread batter and then it dawned on me, a little boy had gotten caught earlier that day with the oven door open. i threw open the oven door and out rolled smoke and the most horrible smell....
these truly were some Hot Wheels! barump bump!

thirsty thursday & fat sock craziness


so, starbucks has unveiled their new logo!  personally, i think i like the older ones better.  the cup usually has a sleeve on it anyway, so is the logo on the cup even seen?  i wonder if the cup sleeve has changed? Since our town has NOT ONE Starbucks, I guess it will be a while before I know the answer to that question...

dinner last night didn't turn out to well.  The kids decided that soup and grilled cheese sounded good, so after sticking the sandwiches under the broiler I turned to Words with Friends on my iphone, and when I turned around the kitchen was filled with smoked.  Needless to say, mom got to eat burnt grilled cheese tops for dinner last night....

everyday my kid complains about his "fat socks".  they are no show socks that are a little big, but fit perfectly fine in my opinion.  he has a couple of pairs that are  little small and those are his favorite.  so on those days instead of hearing the whining about the fat socks, he shouts, "yay, NO FAT SOCKS!!"  i seriously dream about fat socks!

this morning:

me: Ethan, get your bottom over here and get dressed for school! you are going to be late!
Ethan:  I DON'T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL.  NONE OF MY FRIENDS GO TO SCHOOL. I AM THE ONLY KID THAT GOES TO MY SCHOOL.
me:  You're going to school (as i put on his socks).
Ethan:  Oh, my gosh, I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!
me: Can't take what?
Ethan:  THESE FAT SOCKS YOU MAKE ME WEAR EVERYDAY!
