Liberating mothers from stereotyping, monotony, guilt, double standards, sanity, reality, sobriety or any type of seriousness. No, you are not alone, and can join the adventure from the mundane to the insane.
I am a proud mom of 3 wonderful boys; we have a faithful dog, an arrogant, irritating but lovable feline, and a very skeptical bunny rabbit. We live on the prairie in a heartland USA city, and no, its not just tumbleweeds and cows.

Emergency Survey and Other Musings...
Musing # 1: A kids's urgent survey....
Hilarious: At 9:30 last night, neighbor kid brings over a handwritten 'survey' for the boys to fill out. It must have been an 'emergency' survey.It read:
1. Name 3 things you need to rock climb.
2. Should you rock climb with a rope?
3. Should you climb on a ledge that's about to fall?
4. Should you bring a younger person with you?
5. Can you come to my rock climbing BD party hopefully?
This kid’s birthday is in January, LOL.Son # 3 furiously fills it out and puts huge checkmark in YES box and wants to run it back over there in his pajamas.
Musing # 2: Teaching a boy NOT TO PEE ON THE TOILET SEAT!!
Need I say more?
Musing # 3: What do you find on a 10 year old’s dresser top?Hmmm….
Let's do inventory here. Science experiment in water bottle; colored water and oil; fake money to buy/sell at impromptu "sales" set up on plastic tubs, TV tables, anything to get extra change from neighbors who may want to "buy" pre-owned toys for 50 cents; oh, the ever necessity - whoopie cushion and flarp; baloon pump for making balloon animals and instant swords; a wad of floam; a Yoda mousepad; a pocket Hot Wheels RC car racer; Nerf skin for Nintendo DSi; CD of scary Halloween sounds for spookhouse created in closet; Phiten neclace to look cool around your friends; and a porto-bottle of hand sanitizer so you won't have to wash your hands, and of course, piles of Nerf bullets and Legos. I guess it shows a person's priorities in life?? Heh.
