Friday's Fave #8

Friday - 11.30.12 

Friday seemed to take a long time this week, maybe it's because I'm even more limited in mobility then I was before. I feel like I did nothing all week, but sit in front of this dang computer. See as
I can barely move my leg it looks like I wont be going anywhere for a while.

So one exciting thing did happen this week and I know you have all been anxiously waiting to hear about it.... We know the sex of the baby! It will be revealed in tomorrow bun in the oven update! So now on to my fave's this week!

Understanding the Difference Between Geeks and Nerds
by Technically Easy

I had to make this my favorite post of the week because I'm totally a geek. My hubby came home last night and called me a nerd because I was excited about something I did on my design blog, so I had to correct him and show him this post. The fact that I follow Technically Easy, while I'm running a mommy blog says something. So to all my fellow mommy geeks out there, this ones for you!

Mom what's a condom?

Thursday - 11.29.12 

This was not originally planned for today, but the conversation that happened yesterday was just too funny, I had to share.

So since I was too tired to make dinner last night, we went to grab something quick and easy. On the way there, we were listening to the music and talking. This song comes on called Trojans by Atlas Genius (not that I even know who this band is since I usually listen to country but since my hubby hates country we listen to alt rock when he's present) so I've heard this song a couple times and I'm still trying to figure out what kind of Trojan he has in his head.

My son AKA the March Hare is singing along to the song. Now I know if I'm still trying to figure out what in the world this guy is singing about, my 10 year son has no clue, he just thinks it's catchy. Doing what I do best which is blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, I say "I'm not sure how he got a condom inside his head." My husband looks at me laughs at first, then gives me the stern "there's children present" look and shakes his head... still smiling. Now I thought I said it low enough but the March Hare hears me and says "Mom he has a Trojan in his head not a condom."

I look at my husband who's now looking at me with that "See what can of worms you opened." look (he can really say a lot with his looks or maybe I'm just good at reading them). So I say to my son "Do you know what a condom is?"

He replies "Is it a type of condo?" My hubby and I both bust out laughing.

Trying to be serious now, I reply "No son it's something people use during sex when they are trying not to get pregnant, usually unmarried people. (no offense to anyone married that uses condom, were Christian here, so we figured it would be good to throw in as a don't even think about it) I've had the birds and the bees talk with him already, seeing as he walked in on my ex husband a couple years back. So this is just another piece to the puzzle of life.

So that this all makes sense to him, we tell him Trojan is the leading brand of condoms and thankfully he's was unfazed by the talk.

Changing the subject from condoms back to Trojans I ask him "Do you know what a Trojan horse is?" Questioning his answer, he replies "Is it the horse George Washington rode to battle on?" As I'm trying to stop my laugher, I decided this conversation could go on for hours and say "Make sure you pay really close attention in Jr. high during history class son." Thank God he's still innocent and naive, even with a loud mouth mother like me.


Back to the original thought, I still haven't figured out what kind of Trojan this guy has in his head. I read the lyrics and the only logical thing I could think of is a Trojan virus.. but even that is misplaced. Is there some other Trojan I don't know about?

Boys Backyard Camp-out Party

Monday - 11.26.12

I made my son a deal last school year, if he made "honor roll" at least 3 times by the end of the year, I would throw him a slumber party. He did it and I put together an amazing race and camp-out party with 14 boys ages 10 - 17. They had so much fun, my husband and I were exhausted but it was totally worth it!

So the day started off with an amazing race. It took me a week to organize it! I divided the boys up into 3 teams, each with a teenager as captain. I made 10 clues for each team, yes that's 30 clues that I had to make up stupid little rhymes for. They started at my house with their first clue, which would lead them to their next clue and so on and so forth. They each had a map of the neighborhood. They ran around for about 2 hours until one team finally came back with all 10 clues. They had so much fun, even the teenagers like it!

However, you should have seen me running around like a chicken with my head cut off before they showed up! I slipped in a puddle of water on my kitchen floor and sprained my ankle. So the Cheshire Cat drove me around the neighborhood and I hobbled from site to site planting clues. I'm sure my neighbors were wondering what in the world this crazy limping lady was doing! Got back to the house just in time to set up the back yard into a sugar fest. My hubby and I had bought so much candy we still have some, not to mention cookies, brownies and and nacho cheese, these boys were in heaven.

As many of the boys that weren't too cool for a pic!
Roasting Marshmallows

After the race they ate pizza and drank soda. Once it got dark they roasted marshmallows and played with glow sticks. My hubby had set up a tarp over the swing-set as the tent and tarped the ground, not that they really ever used it. Since our room is in the very back of the house we are pretty much in the backyard. So with my window open I could hear them loud and clear, I might as well had been in the tent. By 3:30 am I had to lay the smack down, they sounded like a bunch of giddy teenage girls. I wouldn't have cared so much if we didn't live in a very snug neighborhood, my next door neighbors are practically in my backyard.

Playing with the glow sticks in the dark.
They quieted down but I knew they weren't sleeping. I woke up at 7 am and the sight was that of an all night kegger! One boy had pushed all my bar stools together and was asleep on those. There was about 4 boys piled on my big couch, one in my chair, a couple on the floor, one lone ranger out on the back porch, a few actually in the tent and where was my kid... in his own bed!!! Come to find out later a water balloon had gotten thrown into the tent, so no one wanted to sleep in there. BOYS!!!
