These are all Facebook statuses that I almost posted.
Tweets I thought of in my head, but didn’t really have time to write I rarely tweet anymore. Or maybe I thought twice about posting them. Honorable Mentions…Did you ever win an Honorable Mention? It is a nice way of saying “thanks for trying”.
-“The Side ponytail. It’s back and I am rockin’ it.”
I am. Now that my hair is longer, I find that I prefer a low side pony tail…especially on day 2 of a hairwash. Side Pony tail. Call me trendy. Or stuck in the 80’s.
-“I need diet coke in my sippy cup now please… says the 2 year old. Uh…yeah, I don’t think so”
SO…maybe I am a little lax with #3 who has definitely had her fair share of “sips” of Diet coke WAY before any other child did. But in her sippy cup? No.
-“Pregnancy dreams. If they could bottle this in a drug, someone would make millions. Because these dreams are C-R-A-Z-Y”
Yeah, I thought weird pregnancy dreams came in late 2nd trimester? But no… they are here in full force.
-“But I WANT to be a cat when I grow up. – The hysterical screams of a 2 year old after she was told she can’t be a cat when she grows up” She may not be able to be a cat, but she can grow up to drink lots of Diet Coke…just not in her sippy cup.
-“Someone please tell me I am not the only Mom who still let’s her kids lick the spoon when making brownies or cake.” I guess I am just living on the edge, or maybe just think moderation is key (aka, not the whole bowl brownie batter) But I am not a bad mom. I licked the bowl, and lived. And gosh darn it, I let my kids lick the bowl (a few licks…we have a 2 lick rule)
-“The pumpkin shortage (or so that is what I hear) is making me want pumpkin even more. And I don’t even usually buy canned pumpkin.” It’s true-- I am not known for my “made from scratch” creations. I stick to Pillsbury Pumpkin Bread (and toss in chocolate chips, or nuts, cream cheese icing, etc. I also like Betty Crocker’s Pumpkin spice Cookie mix (hard to find, but oh so yummy). I make Pumpkin Pie with Pumpkin Pie Mix in a can. But when something is in high demand or hard to find (like canned pumpkin) it just makes it more attractive. I am such a follower.
- “I may or may not have accosted the shelf stocker at Target today when I spotted some Pumpkin Spice creamer in his cart. I may or may not have reached into his cart without asking, and taken 2 bottles. And then I told him “I won’t tell anyone else you have this” He probably thought I was a crazy loon. And then I hid my pumpkin spice creamer under other groceries so my secret stash wouldn’t be found out. I take seasonal creamers VERY seriously.
And now I am hungry for Pumpkin anything and a diet coke…maybe even a pumpkin spiced diet coke. And I fully expect to have crazy dreams about 2 year olds growing up to be cats with side pony tails.
And those folks, are my most recent Honorable Mentions.
