ShareI planned a fun little adventure for the kids last week. I thought it would be amusing to lead them to a treat with sidewalk chalk directions.

I’d take a self-cleaning toilet over a self-cleaning oven any day

ShareThe person that designed my toilets must have been a very privileged individual, and therefore never had to personally clean a toilet. There are way too many unnecessary nooks and crevices in these stupid toilets! It’s bad enough dealing with these fancy schmancy curvy toilets on a daily cleaning basis, but when your seven year … Continue reading »

What the butt?

Share I found this crumpled up on the ground beside my car minivan. It was penned by Brecken. His penmanship has improved a great deal this past year.

ShareBrecken has a super power. It is the power to vomit on the most difficult to clean surfaces. This morning, as we were shuffling him into the car for camp (very much against his will) he puked all over his car seat and my upholstery. So much for that new car smell.

No foolin’

ShareHi Internet. It’s April Fool’s day, but I’m not going to be clever or try to pull a fast one on ya. I’m too tired. Everyone is sick (again!) over here at Casa de Merrill. I succumbed first, and Jesse turned into Prince Charming, doing car pool and cooking dinners… It was almost worth the … Continue reading »

They do’d

Share  Mrs. & Mr.   Danielle and Apple Josh got married last weekend! We are a little bit fond of them, so we decided to attend the wedding, even though it meant flying 3000 miles with three kids.

Carpool Queen

ShareKaris goes to gymnastics every Friday with three of her school friends. We mothers take turns carpooling, so I only have to take them once a month.
