Good one, TRex

Posted by Robin Haws on Tuesday, June 30, 2009,
"This town needs an enema!" is what TRex blurted out a few hours ago. He even followed it with the miming and sound effects of blowing a party horn. I laughed my butt off. And for those of you who don't do movie's a line from The Joker in Batman. (in the original Michael Keaton who is and always will be Batman version)

Yes, my son is almost 5 and he quotes Jack Nicholson.

At least it wasn't a quote from The Shining...

What's in a name?

Posted by Robin Haws on Saturday, June 27, 2009,
It has occurred to me that I'm probably going to be talking about my kids a lot. I try to not be "one of those parents". You know, the ones who put their kids on the phone with you even when they are 5 months old and you have to sit there while your friend baby talks in the background and pretend that you don't have a million other things to be doing. Ok, so I'm not THAT bad. My kids are pretty funny and very crazy. I like to share their randomness and pop a few cute pics in there from time t...

I love when pictures capture the relationships between people.
My hubby took these pics last Christmas. They are so special to me. He was able to capture the moments between my parents and me so wonderfully that it brought tears to my eyes.

Not Me Monday!

Posted by Robin Haws on Monday, June 22, 2009,

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did NOT get totally and utterly addicted to Twitter this weekend! I have not been resisting it and I did not finally give in. I am absolutely not enjoying it!

I also did not try for quite a while to get some cute pics of the TRex and Snappy...

They are NOT both crazy!

We did not go to a birthday party for hubby's cute little niece...

Happy Father's Day

Posted by Robin Haws on Sunday, June 21, 2009,
The man works long hours

provides for his family

dotes on his daughter

his son thinks he's Superman (so do I)

doctors the pets

makes us all laugh

keeps us safe

saves the day

fixes toys

solves problems

rocks babies to sleep

dries tears

calms fears

gives guidance

fills our hearts with joy and love

and we are so lucky he's ours.

Happy Father's Day to the love of my life and the father of my beautiful children.

And Happy Father's Day to all the Daddies out there who find time to be a real life Superman to a child!

Tit for Tat...

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, June 19, 2009,
Those parents out there know what that means! Those words you mutter to yourself through clenched teeth after being asked the same question for the umpteenth time or after cleaning up yet another wet spot on the floor (does it even matter any more if it is juice or dog pee?)

I really do not believe any parent that claims not to have those moments of blind rage. Either they have never met their child or their child is a robot programmed to not be annoying. I also know that ...

Cable? We don't need no steenkin cable!

Posted by Robin Haws on Thursday, June 18, 2009,
We nixed our cable bill a long time ago. For a few years we've been living in the stone age of rabbit ears. Once the converter boxes hit shelves our lives got exciting with the addition of a couple more channels and clearer reception. It was plenty for us. We always got the major networks and PBS so we were perfectly happy.

Let me tell ya... I can't believe it took us so long to discover Netflix Watch Instantly!
I wouldn't bat an eye if the rabbit ears disintegrated!

Along with our XBox Live ...

A Thousand Words Thursday...

Posted by Robin Haws on Thursday, June 18, 2009,

So, The Mom Jen over at Cheaper Than Therapy started this. I found it on one of my fave blogs, Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House. The premise is simple. "to post a picture that is powerful, that expresses emotion, and speaks volumes to me." We have so many pics that I love to share so I know this will be easy and fun!

Here's my first "Thousand Words" pic...

So, I know this pic is a little old (from Easter) but a moment of Snappy and TRex NOT fighting is to me worth more than anything!

Back to Business...

Posted by Robin Haws on Thursday, June 11, 2009,
Hey everyone!

So, I've been off the grid for about a week, dealing with some family stuff. I'm ba-ack! So glad to be back at home and back to work! Man have I got a lot to do!!

We did sneak in a little fun in the past few days. We attended a wedding (Congrats Jamey and Amanda!), saw some family, and managed to be in the car an awful lot with zero nervous breakdowns! (moms on roadtrips can feel my pain!)

We've had a busy couple of weeks. The kids met yet another new cousin...

Why yes that is a tat...

Sister to TRex. Snappy is our 3 year old, baby toting, crayon loving, song singing, cuteness connoisseur, giggling, stubborn little Princess. She is both a Daddy's Girl and a Mommy's Girl. And she's figuring out how to twist TRex around her finger.
