Mommy Fail Number 235 – Model Car Kit

Mommy Fail Model Car Building With 8 year old

I only go to Michael’s in an emergency; I can’t be trusted. This time, I put my blinders on to pick out a birthday present for one of Isaiah’s friends. I passed the scrapbook stickers, looked straight ahead as I walked by the colored pencils and didn’t even peak at the already-here-way-to-early Halloween decorations. I was surgical, I

This year when I go to the Oscars Grammys Emmys Tonys family room to watch some awards show Woody Woodpecker, I will be decked out in my finest attire t-shirt and sweats, maybe a hat. I will be getting a ride in a limousine driving a mini-van filled with other super-stars kids philosophizing about penises

It’s Gigantic!

This week, it is my honor to co-host my favorite blog-hop! (Besides mine, shameless plug) When the call went out for new sentences for Finish the Sentence Friday I thought about how much I enjoy the topics that can be turned to the funny side of things. So I offered “Once I saw the biggest…”
