Me: "...when the kids and I were discussing the Rapture the other night..."

Tater: "Woah. Wait a minute. You were discussing the Rapture with your children? My nieces and nephew? The Rapture??? My gosh, Kristin, what were you thinking?"

Me: "What? It's gonna happen and they might as well know about it. I mean, they're gonna be a part of it, I hope. What would it hurt for them to know what's going to go on during the Tribulation and stuff? What's wrong with discussing it with them?"

Tater: "Are you TRYING to screw them up?! me here."

Mom: "Well, it's good to see that the Baptist in you hasn't worn off yet, Kristin. You still believe that we must scare everyone into Heaven."


"Sam, you played a good game tonight, son. I'm really proud of you."

"Thanks, Mom."

"Seriously. Have I told you lately just how awesome I think you are?"

"Yeah....I sacrificed my body for the ball. I am awesome."


Me: "Abby, QUIT THAT! For the love of Pete, stop it!"

Tater: "Harp, harp, harp.....quit harpin' at her."

Me: "Well, if she'd just pay attention...."

Tater: "She's gonna have issues because of you."

Me: "She already does. The other night she said she hated me."

Abby: "What do you mean the other night - I still do."

Me: "Okay, girls....when you use the paint pens, test them first on this scrap piece of paper..."

TotOne: (gasping , eyes wide) "Aunt Kiki! She just said something really mean to you! Aren't you going to do something?"

Me: "I am choosing to ignore her."

TotOne: "Man....when I said that to my mom once I got talked to for a lonnnng time."

I can't wait to have kids! My two and a half year old neice just learned "shut up" and "poo poo head" in the same week, and she knows how to put them together and really piss off her parents! I hope it takes her a long time to learn "I hate you!"

Yes, my 10yr old said he hated me because I said he couldn;t do something. Then ten minutes later he kissed me goodnight and said I love you..and I said, "Oh well, I guess I am not the mother from Hell then am I son?" He giggled.
Ignoring is the way to go, sometimes.

Oh How Things Have Changed

Growing up, we always went to Nana's on the 4th of July. Always. There was no option, no variance, it was always to Nan's for the no...
