Monday's Random Musings

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

Sweet Pea was sick this weekend so, needless to say, I need another weekend to recover from my weekend. She is feeling better now and I am well rested.

Ready for some randomness?

It is not good when you actually hear your car break while you are driving down the highway. Not. Good. At. All.
Here's hoping that wasn't also the sound of our bank account breaking.

Nothing good can come from the phrase, "Mommy, my tummy hurts."

When your child makes that statement from the backseat of the car, immediately pull over and terminate all other plans. Trust me on this one.

And, do not feed the same child blueberries later that day. That is all I will say about that.

Last week, Bruiser returned from school with ketchup all over the BACKSIDE of his shirt. How in the world does he do this stuff? Never mind. I don't want to know.

Stain stick, don't fail me now.

I hate laundry. (Just because I can never say this enough.)

Last week I was trying to hide my trembling voice and teary eyes while talking to my boys about some answered prayer. Dimples noticed immediately. I told him they were thankful tears. He quickly said, "I just don't understand why women are so sensitive."

Yeah, you and the other 150 million men in this country...

Project Runway, you did not disappoint. Thank you and welcome back, my good friend. Welcome back.

(Nurse Boy watches Project Runway with me. Shh... don't tell him I told you. For some reason, that makes me feel loved.)

Soccer season officially begins this week with 4 games on our schedule. I say BRING IT ON!

Happy Monday!!!

Happy Monday right back at ya!

I love all the random thoughts in your head. Especially the unending hatred of laundry, it just can't be hated enough.

Have a great week.

Yea, hearing my kids say my tummy hurts are the worst words ever. Poor sweet pea. Hope she is all better now.
Hope your car is a cheap fix. Yikes.
I say bring it on for Soccer too! Exciting!

We were feeling yucky at my house last week two. The littlest had a fever and roseola (sp?). The whole sensitive thing must be inbred or something. Seriously. Why is it so bad to cry. The tears are there for some reason - use them.
Hope the car gets fixed. That's the most frustrating thing that can happen when you have a pack of kids to tote around....

Kmama said...

Sorry Sweet Pea was sick. That's never any fun. I hope the car thing gets worked out, quickly and cheaply!!

Michelle said...

Good morning Mrs. Nurse Boy. Hoping all is fixed soon and so glad to hear prayers are being answered.

Have you thought about doing this as a blog carnival? That would be so much fun! Really, I just want an excuse to do my own Monday's Musings! :)

Have a BLESSED week

Brandi said...

Ugh, you are NOT kidding about the tummy thing. Nothing good ~ NOTHING! It doesn't even matter which end ~ it's ALL bad!!!

Hope the car fixes cheap! :)

Oh Dimples, you don't need to understand why we are so sensitive... all you need to do for the women in your life when you see this is give them a cuddle and some chocolate. It'll fix it, REALLY. Doing a load of laundry would get you some extra points too.

Mrs Nurse Boy, your Monday musings never fail to brighten my day! It's kinda nice to know other peoples kids blow chunks in the car too. Aint life GRAND!

Mother Mayhem said...

Wait a minute! It's Monday? Again? EEK!

Hope Sweet Pea is feeling better. We've been having our own tummy troubles around here too. :o\

That Bruiser...I need to squish those cheeks! He's so funny!

I have a feeling my kid's going to be so similar as he gets older...blowing me away with his mouthiness and all that.

I can't believe it is only 9 p.m. I swear...it has to be later. This has been a very long mommy night.

Jewel said...

I sure hope Sweet Pea is feeling better!
AND I am so glad that Project Runway is back, too!! We no longer get Bravo, so I was thrilled to hear it was going to Lifetime! I don't always understand "couture" design or how they pick what they think is the best, but I loooove the show.
The hubs would NEVER watch it! LOL And that is okay! :-)

Some linky love over on my blog! Obly, I did the random musings on Tuesday. You know, cause it's Tuesday!

Have a great day!
