Grandma & Facebook

Okay so I wrote the blog about my Techie Dad, got to give Grandma some credit too. Several years ago Grandma didn't know much about the Internet. I taught her how to email and even to instant messenger using Yahoo messenger. We email each other little hellos and such every day. Recently Grandma Horner has gotten a Facebook account! My brother can't believe it! I just say to him She is a TECHIE GRANDMA. The Internet doesn't have an age limit! Its our generations thing, but why cant we share?? I welcome it, and am very proud of her for learning how to write on my wall!!!

Dad And Technology!

My Father is a doctor in a small town. He has had a cell phone for awhile, so that the hospital can reach him when needed. Then he caught on to the texting trend. He uses that to keep up with his friends and us kids. We text at least once everyday. He even puts minutes on my tracphone so we can keep in touch. Then one night I got a text from him asking if I was on "twitter." I laughed so hard that night my side hurt. I had just learned what twitter was by watching "THE VIEW." I signed up to see what all the fuss was about. So I followed him. He doesn't update it often but at least he can say he has a twitter account! Just the fact that my dad signed up for it was funny. Now he is on Facebook! He loves it and so do I. My Dad the "Tech Dad!"

Cleaning Fairies

Okay So I love being a mom and taking care of my family. However as all people do I have to complain. Every now and then at least. Those darn cleaning fairies wont come to my house!!! I am ending up having to do the dusting, which living in Texas needs to be done every other day. I have had to clean the bathrooms, and needless to say with two boys in the house our bathrooms are GROSS!!! Toys keep appearing on my floor, when I swear I picked them up like 30 seconds ago!!! Cleaning Fairies did you send your friends the "Messy Fairies?" Okay maybe the messy fairies are the two little munchkins running around. Anyways the Cleaning Fairies DON'T EVEN DO THE MOUNDS OF LAUNDRY THAT PILE UP THROUGHOUT THE DAY! I have a 13 month old who is a constantly drools don't they know laundry has to be done!!! Well maybe I will have better luck tomorrow. Cleaning Fairies I don't know whose house your at, BUT GET YOUR LITTLE WINGED BUTS OVER HERE!!! I NEED YOU!!!

You Know Your a Mom When....

I found this on net and thought I would share...Laughter is the best medicine...

You Know You're A Mom When...
Your feet stick to grape jelly on the kitchen floor..... and you don't care.
When the kids are fighting, you threaten to lock them in aroom together and not let them out until someone's bleeding.
You can't find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend tocall you, and you run around the house madly, following thesound until you locate the phone downstairs in the laundry basket.
Your idea of a good day is making it through without a child leaking bodily fluids on you.
Popsicles become a food staple.
Your favorite television show is a cartoon.
You're willing to kiss your child's boo-boo, regardless of what body part it happens to be on.
You're so desperate for adult conversation that you spillyour guts to the telemarketer that calls and HE hangs up on YOU!
Spit is your number one cleaning agent.
You buy cereal with marshmallows in it.
You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.
You have time to shave only one leg at a time.
You hide in the bathroom to be alone.
Your kid throws up and you catch it.
You cling to the high moral ground on toy weapons; but yourchild chews his toast into the shape of a gun anyway
You find yourself cutting your husband's sandwiches into cute shapes.
You're up each night until 11 PM vacuuming, dusting, wiping,washing, drying, loading, unloading, shopping, cooking,driving, flushing, ironing, sweeping, picking up, changingsheets, changing diapers, bathing, helping with homework,paying bills, budgeting, clipping coupons, folding clothes,putting to bed, dragging out of bed, brushing, chasing,buckling, feeding (them, NOT you), PLUS swinging, playingbaseball, bike riding, pushing trucks, cuddling dolls,rollerblading, basketball, football, catch, bubbles,sprinklers, slides, nature walks, coloring, crafts, jumpingrope, PLUS raking, trimming, planting, edging, mowing,gardening, painting, and walking the dog. You get up at5:30 AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink or goto the bathroom, and yet ... you still managed to gain 10 pounds.
