Tales of a STAY AT HOME MOM!!!

Well my sister, Amber, says I need to post more and she is right. So I have been trying to think of what to post. Even though my life seems sort of uneventful it is actually full of lots of interesting tales. Sunday, August 12 we got our first official flat tire. We were all in the car headed to church when we noticed that something was wrong. Sure enough, the front right tire was as flat as can be. Luckily we were still in the driveway. James had a little trouble getting the tire off at first but soon he was able to get the spare on and we headed off to church. Believe it or not we only missed an hour of church.
Later on that week Joshua was trying to figure out ways to hide his veggies from us. We had told him in order to get dessert he had to eat all his veggies. He hid them in all sorts of places. Under the table, under his chair, down his shirt, in Eliza's bowl, and yes even in his nose. Even though it was easy to get out he got scared when he realize that it was stuck and he could not get it out by himself.
Joshua is not the only one known for getting himself into trouble. Eliza likes to hide in cabinets throughout the house. So one day she thought it would be fun to hide with the dishes. She successfully got up in the cabinet only to have big brother Joshua pull the chair away from the counter. She was now stuck. We easily got her down but she was laughing the entire time.
To most of you these may seem like sillylittle events but with three kids all three and under these are regular occurrences. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Without these silly occurrences life as a stay at home mom would be rather boring. So all of you who think being a stay at home mom is easy think again. BUT I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!!
