My brain has turned to low-pulp, calcium-fortified mush. Now with Vitamin D!

Yesterday I woke up with little A (and waking up to the sounds of a baby jabbering a very cute, although unrecognizable, story is a very good way to start your day, I tell you what), fed him, played with him and then put him down for his morning nap.

I decided to take advantage of the quiet time to make myself some breakfast. I made my usual meal, poured myself a glass of OJ, scarfed it all down and put everything away quickly so I could get myself ready and little A's things packed up to make it to his 10 a.m. doctor's appointment.

I was feeling pretty proud of myself as we strolled into the doctor ON TIME (yes, I know, I was shocked, too), ran our errands and made it back home for his early afternoon nap.

All of this "being organized" stuff had me feeling quite thirsty so I reached in the cupboard for a glass.

I saw this.




I am telling your this story so you get a visual representation of how my life is going and so you will know why I have been such a terrible blogger lately.

And, food-born illnesses aside, just for the record I think that storing orange juice in the cupboard is an excellent idea. It really cuts down on preparation time when you have your glass and your beverage on the same shelf.

Sound like everyday around here. Does it make you feel any better to know that others do the same things? I have found some things in some pretty weird places, luckily when the kids are older they can be blamed for putting my keys in the fridge.

Does your "usual meal" involve a certain corn/flour flatbread?

Welcome to parenthood!! I took the TV remote with me one time to pick Austin up from Football and that is just the beginning. It's what makes mom's so special!!

I best moment was when I was making rice-o-roni and had everything cooking in the skillet. I lifted the lid, to see the progress, and there was the empty box, sitting on top of everything else.

I love when I put my dirty cereal bowl in the fridge and find it there later... lol. And now I know I'm not alone in the world!

I have so many of these stories it's not even funny. But here's one that isnt' mine, I was just lucky enough to find it.
We had corn with dinner about a month ago. Someone wrapped up the corn in tin foil and then proceeded to put it in the tin foil box, IN THE CUPBOARD. So, I went to get a sheet of tin foil and when I "disturbed" the box I was literally attacked by fruit flies. In my hair, eyes, mouth, nose...I was nauseous for the rest of the night. No lie.

OJ in the cupboard? Pleeeeeease. Talk to me when you've put your keys in the freezer. :)

That is awesome. One time I actually put the milk in the pantry and the cup in the fridge. I didn't even notice until my little boy asked me what I was doing. O swear we are not all nuts.
