Well we made it through Halloween. In hopes to halt all gluttonous behavior I told the kids to eat as much candy as they wanted the day of Halloween and then leave the rest out for the candy fairy to take in exchange for a small toy. My friend thought I was so weird for doing this but I think there would have been more weirdness going on around the house after the kids all downed their 10 pounds of candy Ausustus Gloop style. I could just see myself saying, "Kids save some for later". The funny thing about the candy fairy though is that she really loves Twix and Kit Kats...that probably should be the real focus of gluttonous behavior..busted.
Anyway I am feeling kind of chatty at the moment and wanted to get something off of my chest. You see most of the time you don't see what goes on behind the scenes of the blog and in fact only see certain aspects of life....which usually tends to be the best. You see a camera can be choosy on whether it wants to capture the the mess to the left or the clean spot to the right if you know what I mean. Sure I could post about how motherhood kicks my booty every other day or how I just had to invest in clinical strength deodorant because I have BO and stink but alas you see mostly all of the good and the pretty. I would never want anybody to think I was some kind of amazing Mom who always had it together because then I might be at risk of being deemed a phony baloney. With that being said I need to hustle and clean up my house just so Lilia won't be scared when she comes over to give my house a monthly deep clean (Lilia is one of my favorites). I love all of you guys and love all of the nice little notes and emails..even if you think I might be better than I am.
Oh and what are you doing this weekend..I really would love to hear????
