I'm trying!

As you all know by now I am a self proclaimed "bad housewife." Although I am bad at it, this does not mean that I don't want to try and be good at it so as of recently I have been really trying. Here is how my efforts are going...

We had our good friends came and stayed with us a couple of weeks ago and as usual I had to do a whole house clean before they got there because I am not good at keeping up with everything. So after they left I thought to myself as I always do "I need to keep the house looking like this, if I just do a little every day it can stay like this." So I have been doing pretty good for the most part. I have even managed to get all but 3 loads of laundry done and put away. I am pretty proud of myself. Although to be totally honest I have not made our bed probably once in the past 3 months. But that's not that big of a deal right?

Another conclusion I came to recently is that all moms bake so I should try that too. I started with lemon poppyseed muffins. I was all excited yesterday when I woke up, I told Stella "mommy is going to make you some good muffins!" so I made them right away and proudly gave one to Stella who took one bit and said "I don't like 'em." I am going to try banana bread next.

It's all fun and games until you get a call home from your kid's school

I know with Stella only being 2 she is a far ways from going to school. With that said she is already developing some habits that I know will result in me getting a call at home from her school. It's all cute now and everyone laughs (especially Dan) but I keep telling him "just wait until she goes to school and is saying this stuff." He blows it off so I think I will be giving him as the contact once she goes to kindergarden.

Case in point. We went out to dinner on Friday with some good friends. As we were standing outside waiting for our table I heard someone pass gas...VERY LOUDLY. We all looked at Dan and I said "Dan, come on!" To which he reliped "I didn't do it!" Nobody was buying that until my cute little daughter looked at all of us very proudly with a big smile on her face and said "Stella did it, Stella tooted!" At another point that night while we were sitting down at the dinner table she said "you hear that? Stella burped!" Yeah so I am thinking we might have a bit of a situation on our hands.
