Unrevealed thoughts. Crazy, lazy mommy. Random Day.

I've been doing a lot of thinking today. About what? Well... about all kinds of things. Nope, I'm not going to say. I know you're wondering why I would bring it up if I'm not going to tell you what's on my mind.

Actually I don't have an explanation for that. I wanted to post about regular life today and I really don't have anything interesting to share or that I haven't already told you. So, I thought I'd let you know that my mind is busy. Boring, huh?

I wish I looked like this while lounging around. :)

Today has been a pretty random day. I spent a good portion of the morning lounging around and chatting on the phone while attempting to take care of the younger children. I say attempting because they didn't have lunch 'til after 3 p.m. (Hey, they woke up late and had a late breakfast) and I'm lucky they didn't stage a mutiny. We went to the store, they watched a couple of movies, they played, laughed, screamed, ran, jump, got in trouble and started all over again.

The most dramatic thing that happened today was while I was laying on my bed chatting to my dearest friend. I said something like, "I know I didn't just hear the screen door open." ...

"I know my children didn't just go outside."

All three of my children - led by my 5-year-old son - unlocked the door then unlocked the screen door and were on their way to the van to "get something." Now, I do on occasion let them go outside to get things out of the van WHEN THEY ASK. He had nerve enough to say, "You said yes."

My toddler was barefoot and had on a nightgown, with nothing under it, and the other two had just gotten themselves dressed. I got to the door and yelled like a crazy woman, "What in the world are y'all doing?! Get back in here! Who told you you could go outside?"

I just knew the neighbors would call the police about a "crazy-looking woman yelling at her children" (I wasn't really dressed and my hair was sticking every which-a-way). When they got inside I ordered all of them to sit on the couch as I chastised them for leaving the house without telling me and without asking. I also told them that someone could have taken them or they could have gotten hurt and I wouldn't have known anything.

They sat and stared at me with their mouths open. Anna's eyes were wide, but not one of them said a word. I think my menacing eye, pointing finger, raised voice and hand on the hip was a clue that I absolutely was not playing.

After I settled down I could feel that they had really scared me. I've taught my son to unlock the screen door in case of an emergency or something, but I never thought they would just go out of the door.

What? Wait... who said that?

Never mind. I forgot I was talking about my children. Of course they would just go out of the door. Well, I'll talk to them again about it and ensure that it doesn't happen again.

Moving right along.

Probably the most "interesting" thing that happened today was when I discovered - while we were at the store - that my 4-year-old daughter had gotten dressed and not put on panties. (Is that a theme today?) And, what's even more interesting, she decided not to include that item of clothing. Luckily she had on a long top with leggings.

Can you imagine the headlines? "Children taken while authorities investigate missing underwear." SIGH...

See, nothing really happened today.


  1. So, she's going "commando" now??! At least she put on leggings. :)

  2. You have entered the realm of Mom-dom...

  3. First, let me calm DOWN...going out the door and Mom not knowing...what a scare! And, the whole incident is over and done with. You handled that very well. The hand on the hip, pointing finger, raised voice and all. Make sure that screen door keeps squeeeeking (LOL), it save the day.'bout a little tinkling bell too, in case they forget something else in the van. Or, down the block.
