Monday FUNday!

What did I do today?

Well thank you for asking. I am itching to share. Like always:)

This morning was spent trying to find the source of the distinctly vomitous odor that was emanating from the general vicinity of the bathroom/the girls' room. I mean I was on my hands and knees searching. And all I found were some dust bunnies. Correction: an entire herd of full grown rapidly reproducing dust rabbits and a trail of stale Cheerios. Do rabbits even group together in herds?! I don't know. But what I do know is, I was appalled by the filth that was the girls floor! [Random side note: after sharing a room for a year now Charlotte still refers to their room as "Sarwit's room". Oh and according to her Hannah sleeps in "Sarwit's crib". Sharing is clearly her strong suit.]

My girls seemed to have woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, so being ignored while I attempted a vomit search and rescue mission was not their idea of a good time. And they let me know by whining, fussing and even a bit of screaming for good measure. And when morning snack didn't resolve the case of the crabbies we had going on, I decided it was time to pull out the big guns. Lunch. Macaroni and cheese at 10:45 AM. Followed shortly by stories and afternoon nap. Although can it still be called afternoon nap if it starts in the morning?! I don't know and I don't really care. We needed it. 

I too wanted to nap. But I resisted the urge (thank you my faithful friend, Pepsi) and instead started unearthing my living room floor. It took the entire nap time but I finally managed to sort through and organize both my girls' fall wardrobes in peace and quiet. It was actually kind of fun. Looking at all the cute jeans, leggings, skirts, shirts and dresses. Remembering when Charlotte wore this or that outfit and marveling over the fact that Hannah is already big enough for said outfits! I know. I know. Thrilling stuff here. 

Moving right along. After nap we were headed to the library. But first I just had to search one more time for the Hero Factory DVD that had gone MIA somewhere in our house. While I searched the girls did this:

Much happier to be ignored post-nap!

And look at the masterpiece Charlotte created!

It's our family. Can you tell who everyone is? I will give you a hint: Charlotte labeled herself with a "C". I love it! I kind of want to frame it. 

That is pretty much where the excitement ended. Oh wait it never was exciting? Sorry. But not that sorry. 

So in recap:
1. I never found the source of the vomit odor. I wouldn't recommend stopping by for a visit anytime soon. Or if you do come over just stay in the living room. It smells normal enough in there. 
2. Two of my three children now have seasonally appropriate wardrobes. Unfortunately the child still wearing shorts and t-shirts is the one out in public where people can see how badly his mom is failing him! So while I enjoyed seeing my living floor for a few short hours today, it is gone once again. Covered in all things boy apparel. Which has me thinking about #1...since my living room is trashed and I have a weird vomit smelling bathroom/girls' room maybe I should declare my home a 'No Visitors Zone' until further notice. That seems reasonable. 
3. I did NOT find the DVD. I even asked Charlotte for help. She suggested under the couch. So I looked there for the 11 billionth time. No dice. I thought this was going to turn into the lost library book saga that my friend experienced recently. (If she allows I will share that story. Because unlike this saga that one is actually funny!) And then tonight while I was bathing the girls (...completely irrelevant detail...) Joe found the lost DVD. In the DVD player!!! And the case? In Charlotte's back pack! Tricky. Tricky. 

So there you have it. My Monday FUNday. Oh the fun. It just never ends. 


  1. It sounds way too much like my life.

    I am very impressed with Charlottes picture if your family. I would definitely keep that one.

    1. Except YOU would have found the source of the odor and sanitized the entire house in the process! Does this help you feel a little better about not getting to visit?!?

  2. I absolutely LOVE this blog post. Your day sounds a lot like mine. Completely random and fun! And I love the productive happy feeling I get when I spend all of nap time organizing something! In fact, I don't "clean" anymore at all. I just "organize" the mess. It makes me feel so much better about my life.

    Thanks for linking up at Babies and Beyond!

  3. Yes organization is the key to staying SANE with littles around...I am 6 years into this parenting gig and I feel like I am just now grasping that concept!

    Thanks for hosting...
