#momproblems

Hmmm. What to clean up first: The sheets that were peed on; the rug that was pooed on, or the bucket that was barfed in? #momproblems #messeseverywhere

#nineyearoldquotes

"Emily, we should make a farm and we can do our best. And then we can sell the food. Or give it to people who are hungry. Even if we don't make a lot of food we should try it." -JDawgRitchey

#nineyearoldquotes

"Emily! I put hand soap in my hair. Wanna see?"

Ummmmmm...


#nineyearoldquotes

From the archives aka July 28th:

"You know what else is weird but also normal? Getting older. Like, how you age. And you just get... OLDer."
- JDawg Ritchey

This kid is on fire tonight.

"You know what's weird but also usual? That our front teeth are always used for biting things and our back teeth are always for the chewing. It's weird!"

Day Camp

"Do I HAVE to go to camp today?"

"No, but if you stay home I'm putting you to work because we have a lot to do and you can't bug me about being bored. We have about ten loads of laundry, garden needs to be cleaned up, some errands, and your room is a wreck. It's actually probably best if you stay home and help out!"

[pause]

"But if I WANT to go to camp, can I?"

No place like Home

At bedtime:

Me: "I had a lot of fun on our road trip together. But it's really nice to be home."

JDawg: "I had fun, too. But our home is the best." 

(This means a lot coming from the kid who asked if it was possible to live at the last hotel...). ❤️
