How does your garden grow?

so far this year everything is coming up gorgeous, I could use a day of rain however as the flowers are thirsty and I try to send the boys out to water them, but it usually just ends up in a garden hose water fight and the boys get watered not the plants....and they don't need to grow anymore!

My Chicken has an identity issue.

Our chicken, Nugget is her name, has decided to channel her inner rooster. She is most definatly NOT a rooster and is very much built like a hen...fluffy butt and all. HOWEVER since she is the biggest and has proclaimed herself ruler of the other hens (somehow I don't think there was a vote either, as the others don't look particularly thrilled with this development) she won out with brute force. It's up to her where they all go to look for buggy yummy treats...but the worst is....she is crowing, yuppers it's obnoxious.
it's not a full fledge cock-a-doodle-do...kind of a half assed attempt really and she mostly does it when we are outside and they are shut up in the big play area....she loves to socialize with the kids and will stand by the door giving it her all until one of the boys goes and lets her out.
I don't think the neighbors will be real happy with me. We decided this weekend to start letting them out later in the morning as not to bother anyone and on Sundays they have to "sleep in late" in the coop. Why can't i have normal pets??

When exactly did I give my daughter permission to grow up??

How did this happen? when did I blink? It was only yesterday I swear that I was getting her ready for 1st grade and now she just graduated from 8th grade?? When did she trade her groovy girl dolls for an iphone? why did i teach her to spell so she could text 24/7 (although the spelling she uses for texting was certainly NOT what the nuns taught her let me tell you...idk wht lol bcz!
so tonight is the graduation dance and I'm sprining my baby girl from school so that she can get all dolled up and her hair done. i'll try really really hard not to cry but i'm not making any promises, I did tell her I'll save the big cry for when she is no around and never in front of her friends.

End of August is offically "Diva Weekend" when Dawn, Katie and I will decend upon North Conway NH with our tiaras sparkling for the world to see! Oh it's a girls weekend in the making! Think shopping the outlets (in our offical DIVA pink t-shirts) and of course intoxicated mini golf in tiaras....because can you think of a BETTER time to wear tiaras?? Shhhhhhaaaaaaa no you can't!

After a looong summer with the kids this is something i can treat myself with...time with my Divas....'cause they know and love me bestest!

Hollah (or when we are having dinner at Dawn's house Challah!)

10 1/2 days of childless freedom left.

Why is it summer just sneaks up on a person like a big humid blanket and it's all good, your having fun in the pool, running around the yard..then it hits.


Oh well, I'll enjoy my quiet time while I can before the revolving door of children decends upon me. Note to self: stock up on the juice boxes, mac and cheese and ice cream bars.
