The craziness that is my life..........

My student just came down about 1/2 hour ago and told me there was a problem upstairs......she said "something with ketchup..........um.......and mess in hallway"........hmmmmm that can never be good.

Apparently Foofoo the master mind........decided to get something to eat.......even though it is after 9pm and she is supposed to be in bed..........we let the girls stay up a bit late cuz we watched "Eight Below" together as a family. This was a really great family movie.....we all really enjoyed it!! so anyways she got a chair and put it next to the pantry which is in our hallway outside the kitchen...........and she dropped the bottle of ketchup........you know the family size one........and it hit the chair before it hit the carpet and woooosh.......my carpet looked like a large animal had sneezed ketchup EVERYWHERE.........like all over the walls.....inside the bottom of the pantry........it even managed to turn the corner in the air before landing on my stairs!!! actually quite amazing really! my student was desperately trying to clean it.........Faith was crying..........well sort of crying.......more like making a real sad face and sniffling........"I sowwy mommy I sowwy"...........ya even though it was an accident she shouldn't have been out of bed so I quickly reminded her of that and she better get that but into bed Q.U.I.C.K.........my saving grace..........2 things really...........we have a wet vac/carpet cleaner...........and we are replacing the carpet in the hallway fairly quickly.........eeh gad what a mess...........it is all cleaned up now but not a nice thing to do at 9:30 at night!

The really weird thing about all this is this.............almost EVERYTIME I buy the family pack of ketchup from the Superstore.......it comes in a twin pack....that is 2 bottles for those of you who are still suffering from baby brain.....Faith single handedly manages to break one of the bottles............I even stood there in the aisle on Saturday when we bought groceries...........and thought to myself " do I buy one bottle or risk it and buy the twin pack and hopefully Faith won't break it?".........no word of a lie!!! so I am a little perplexed!!! what is with her and breaking ketchup bottles????? I mean ketchup is her favorite veggie...I mean condiment.....so why would she sabotage them????

anywoo what can you do but clean up life's little messes and go on!

here is a couple "just got to share it" moments:

Hailey the other day driving home from school was annoyed, as she usually is after school, and Faith was bugging her to pick something up for her and pass it to her..........on and on.........finally Hailey goes to pick up the object and says to Faith in an oh so sweet voice "sure I will give it to you"........this next part she says in a she-devil deep gravelly voice ...." innnn pAAAAIIInnn".........oh man I laughed SO hard! it was too funny!! where do they learn these things???

Faith on Monday night was watching tv late (she had a nap....I know my bad...that usually means she is up way TOO late) anywoo....she was watching tree house and Tim and J were still fussing with the lino upstairs and it was getting late and I was tired so I went to go lie down on the couch...........Faith quickly informs me that she is "firsty".....I finally convince her to go ask her dad, who is upstairs, to get her a drink...........she walks to the door and assumes this bizarre position........imagine - a not-so-little 4 year old girl with hair almost down to her but, standing there with one hand on her hip and the other hand made into a fist and resting under the side of her chin..........and she looks at me and says thru her teeth in her monotone anticlimactic voice "whacha doina do when I doe upsdairs?".......I stare blankly wondering if I am really seeing what I think I am seeing.........."whacha doina do when I doe upsdairs? you doina change a channel?"..........I nodded yes completely speechless she carries on "well........she rolls her eyes....flips her hair out of eyes not moving her hand positions......when I det bat I gona watch my show"...............she turns and skips out of the room (she skips a lot) and I am still lying there baffled when I hear daddy putting her to bed and her wails of protest and I think.........oh I can change the channel now...........then I think............wow I was really not going to change the channel like she said for me to do.............wow......she's got some power!!!!


side note: we didn't hear back from our counter offer today.............these people I think take their time! they were the 2nd people thru our house 2 weeks ago today and they took that long to even phone an offer in so............. we shall see what happens........we have more showings on Friday, even though the carpet is not done (I haven't gotten paid for the van yet!!! he still wants it though so pray that that $$ comes in soon)

the kids have sports day tomorrow and Morgan is volunteering as a helper so all 5 us will be at the school.............. all............. day.................. tomorrow................. and it is supposed to be hot hot hot...........finally some sun!! so I will talk to you all later
