Flow of Thought

This month has been a wild one, and it's only half way over!  Husby is working the night shift ALL month long, so that means that we only see him for a few hours a week, with the exception of the weekends.  If we didn't have the weekends, we would never see him.  He works 6pm to 8am every week day, comes home to sleep, and then goes back in.  It's terrible!  I truly, honestly, don't how he does it.  Superman, he is!

This is why my blogs have been few and far between.  I've been one busy momma!  The boys and I do the best we can to fill our days so that we don't get lonely and it's months like this I am so thankful for family and friends.  :)

So.  Here's a post of pointless thoughts rolling around my head.  You can probably expect most of my posts for the rest of the month to resemble such pointlessness.

You know what really bugs me?  That I can't put BOTH of my boys car seats in the middle of the backseat.  Like, it bothers me so much that I worry about it.  A lot.  How do you choose who goes in the safest spot?  Levi is in the middle right now, simply because his car seat was there originally, and his car seat is so huge.  But I feel so bad that Ezra isn't there, too.  I worry so much that someone is going to hit us on his side!  I'm about to get even more stressed out because we are going to have to move Levi's over to the other side because they don't fit well right next to each others.  Levi is kind of crooked.  So .... no one will be in the middle.  Worry. Worry. WORRY!

Husby and I come up with baby inventions in the middle of the night when we get up to feed Ezra.  Since Husby rarely gets up with him because of work, he only has one invention.  I have several.  It's like I wake up and have spurts of sheer genius in the wee hours of the morning.  Seriously.  We need to go on Shark Tank ... we've got a good thing going here!

Do you ever want to tell someone that they look like someone, but are afraid they'll be offended?  This happens to me ALL of the time.  I have told people they look like beautiful actresses before and have gotten the "WHAT!? You think I look like HER? Ugh!! Gee THANKS," in response, so I've stopped telling people.  I never know what will offend who, so I just keep it to myself.

One of my dear friends from college says that I see people in other people all the time.  I can't help it.  Everyone looks like everyone else!  One of Husby and my favorite games to play in public is "People Who Look Like People".  Cracks us up.  I'm sure the strangers really appreciate us staring at them and then dying laughing.  We need to work on our discreetness.  Is that a word?

When I hear people say, "that's not even a word", I can't help but scream, "THAT'S NOT EVEN A WOOOORD!" a'la Monica Geller Bing on Friends.  You know, when Rachel says "transponster"?  Funny.

Does anyone else find it a little odd that Jessica Simpson named her baby girl Maxwell?  It's especially weird for me because I have a nephew named Maxwell.  I mean, if I ever have a girl, she's getting the girliest name on the market!  To each his own, I guess.  Then again, when I was pregnant, I told a stranger Ezra's name and she said, "oh, a little girl"?  Um ... nope.

Who's watching American Idol?! I am, and loving it.  Well, I'm loving Phillip Phillips.  He's fantastical. I appreciate Joshua Ledet and think he's pretty amazing, but he's not my style.  And Jessica Sanchez?  Eh.  Too much screaming and growling for my liking.  I wish she would have gone home when America voted her off, but noooo - they had to go save her.  I really liked Hollie.  I wish she and Phillip would be the final 2.  This is the first time my favorite has ever gone this far.

Husby bought me a Mother's Day gift from him (sweet boy), and it's a pair of neon yellow and pink tennis shoes!  They're the cutest things in life.  He loves to get me sporty stuff.  I think he's trying to turn me into Sporty Spice since I've got all these boys in my life! ;)

My babies got me some gold stackable rings I have been wanting.  I'm decked out in Mom Jewelry and loving it!!

And ... time to crash!  Na'night, lovies!

I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. I'm with you are the car seat thing, we need a much bigger middle seat! It's just not right!

  2. I'm a teacher and we have a theory at school that there are only so many faces out there and they get recycled! :) We often will have a student that looks so much like a student from years before. That's our theory and we are sticking to it.

  3. I do the exact thing..I see people in other people at the time. It's crazy. I also agree about Jessica on AI. Not her biggest fan.

  4. Most people have their car seats on the sides if they have more than one in a car seat, where I live. My truck is made to have the car seats on the sides with hooks in the truck and has none in the middle.

  5. "That's not even a WORD!" - Hahaha...I say that in my head ALL the time!

  6. My Traverse has captain's chairs in the middle so I have no choice but to put my son on the side. Thankfully, I have side curtain airbags so that makes me feel better, but I've also noticed that in some SUVs you can't put your child in the middle even if there's a bench seat. Not sure why.

    And I always think people look like actresses/actors. I don't think it's insulting, but some people are touchy. ;)

  7. My kids are older now but I always had them on the sides--at the time we had an Expedition with captains chairs so that really was the only option. They survived!

    I hear you on the Maxwell thing. What's odd is that I clearly *like* last names as first names--my kids are Bronte (girl) and Davis (boy)--and it still bothers me. I think it's partially because Maxwell is a solidly male name, and also that she also chose a more masculine middle name (Drew). My daughter's name is more unusual, but she has a decidedly girly middle name and if it ever bothered her she could use that as an alternative.

  8. Maybe I can help you out with the carseat thing. If you have one kid forward-facing and one rear-facing, the forward-facing carseat is supposed to go in the middle because that's the safest spot in the car (and they're less protected while forward-facing), and the rear-facing seat goes to one of the sides.


  9. I love doing those online games where you see what celebrity you look alike. Karlie does those on her phone all the time and it's hilarious. I got Zooey Deshanel but then my sister got Steve Martin. hahaha.

    Also, this weekend, randomly, this guy was at my sister's graduation party and when I sat down in the same room as him, he looked at me and said, "You look like Rachel McAdams," which is funny because most of the time I'm not sure which celebrity they are talking about, but apparently this new movie The Vow has her with a similar style and haircut as me, so i've been getting that some recently. I also get Amy Adams... and since their names are both similar to me, I confuse them. haha. (-:
