Since I had to work all day, I was lucky enough to have Quinn's Mom get Aspyn ready. I really couldn't expect Quinn to get a princess ready!

Aspyn's Fire Saftey

Mom: "So Asher you have been learning about fire safety in school. What do you do if your clothes ever catch on fire?"
Asher: "Stop, drop and roll!"
Aspyn: "Shake your booty."

Mom: "What do we do if there is a lot of smoke in the house?"
Asher: "Crawl so we don't get smoke on us."
Aspyn: "Shake your booty."

Mom: "Can you guys name some ways to get out of the house?"
Asher: "Through the window."
Aspyn: "Mom who farted?"

Mom: "When we meet oustide....where should we meet?"
Asher: "Maybe the neighbors or mailbox."
Aspyn: "Wal-Mart"

Mom: "When there is a fire, do we pack all of our toys before getting out?"
Asher: "No, just ourselves."
Aspyn: "Mom...why does it smell like farts?"

And he's off!

The training wheels are gone! Yay!

Battle Cards?

So Asher came home from school the other day and immediately started to cut out some cardstock paper and make cards. On them were some weird monster looking people, assorted by color and given a number. Asher informed me these were Battle Cards and that he needs some to play with Dylan and AJ at school. Battle Cards? Seriously? At 5 years old? I'm mean and made him use his homemade cards until he would clean his room and behave, which he did so we went to Target to buy some. He freakin carries them everywhere like they are gold!
I dropped him off at school the other day and he didn't want to kiss me goodbye...he ran off to the playground and met dylan underneath the slide to trade cards and...battle. Too Funny!

Friday, September 19, 2008



I am...optmistic tonight.

I'd like to think... that I can remodel my kitchen....but it's Grandma's.

I've become... completely out of control with my Scentsy Candles.I just keep buying and's crazy!

I think...about what other people think ALL the time...sometimes I think I'm psychic.

I know...that tomorrow at some point I'm going to have to do the dishes.

I want...the energy to work out.

I obsession with MTV Reality that needs to stop.

I like...when my kids ask to go to "Fas Legas"

I wish ...I wasn't always freakin hungry.

I hate...when people don't have common sense...

I momma

I fear...of getting cancer

I people think I'm a bad mom cuz I work. (copying your answer Lesley)Ditto

I hear...the bubbles from the 55 gallon fish tank in my kitchen with freakin 30 fish that Quinn suprised me with on my last trip home from Vegas. suprise suprise

I smell....Scentsy Everywhere!

I wonder...if I will ever have another baby.

I regret....not finishing school before having kids.

I love... my family!

I always...worry about the point where I probably could use some medication.

I am not...super woman...although I wish I were

I Quinn and his new Hydrogen Fuel Cell business (nice plug huh?)

I don't always...wash my hair...there...I said it.

I win...debates with Quinn...he may not think so but I know I do....gotta pick your battles.

I lose...a lot of patience but I'd rather be losing weight.

I to do things different. I have a strange OCD/ritual/karma thing going on and can't get rid of it. I HAVE to do things the same every year. My fixtures in the store need to face the same way as last year in OCT...otherwise it's bad luck...I know I"m crazy.

I booty shakin,beat pumpin hip hop, techno, pop. And I shake my booty at work and home and am currently teach Aspyn how to do the same.

I am scared of...being alone.

I read...magazines like they are going out of style.

I...invite anyone else who wants to play along to produce an "I" post! I love reading them!

Working Moms...

So many moms do it...but why do I struggle so much? It's been almost 1 year since I went back to work full time....a hard year! Not that I didn't work before...I've done home daycare for the prior 2 years...but actually leaving everyday for 8+ hours is harder than I thought!

I feel like I've missed out on one year of my kids lives! I was such a work-a-holic before having kids...then I turned into a home body. I feel like everyone tells me that I'm fine and I'm meant to work full time but am I? Things are different now with kids...sometimes I feel like my place is to just be home with them. Not that Quinn doesn't do a good job but there are obvious are some to name a few:

1. The state of my home upon return...breakfast plates still out? C'mom! They didn't even make it to the the response I get from Quinn.... "Well they aren't my plates those were the kids' plates."

2. Laundry - I called home the other day and was informed that Quinn had done 2 WHOLE loads of laundry...I was tickled! But that didn't last long once I realized that 2 loads to him meant putting 1 load in the washer and taking it out putting it in the dryer...that was 2 loads.

3. Homework - I was so excited to help Ash do homework but when coming's like a treasure hunt in my house to find all the papers...they are everywhere! While some gets done I feel like I am hunting down every piece to make sure we did it all. Besides the fact that Dad let's him do it however HE wants to do it....MEN?!?!?

Maybe just a bad day? Don't know....hopefully will figure it out soon.

Aspyn's 1st Day of Preschool!

After a failed attempt last year at Preschool....we're back!!!

I'm so proud of Aspyn!!! For most of those who know us well, we..actually I, have had a hard time cutting the umbilical cord. She is horrible upset if I even take the garbage out. All by herself for the 1st time without Myself or Asher...she went to school! She didn't even cry....but of course I did..I didn't let her see that though!

She goes to Miss Mary's Little Lambs and I couldnt' have found a more caring and loving teacher. Mary you are the best!

We thought her 1st day outfit should be themed "Apples" for school...Compliments of Gymboree!!!

My baby is in Kindergarten!!!

A part of being a mom is watching all of those wonderful milestones that your child reaches. I've been waiting for this day for 5 years.....but never thought I'd cry so hard! I cried when dropping him off, during the assembly, picking him up from the bus stop and various times through out the day! Asher is such a good boy I couldn't have asked for a better little boy that is so responsible and adorable!

The Power of Commercials

I practically can't stand them but my kids seem to love them. They believe in them 100% and I'm sure it's due to the great acting involved while making them. Why do all the cartoon channels play so many of them?'s driving me nuts! Here are some that I have to endure or listen to daily.

Green Bags - I was driving home and explaining why we couldn't stop at anymore stores because the groceries would go bad. Aspyn wanted to know where Bee-nana's live, in the fridger or on the counter. I explained that they last longer in the fridge and my son proceeded to tell me that all I have to do is buy those one green bags and I can put all the fruit I want in them and they would last forever.

Pancake Puffs - Luckily Target carries a few "As seen on TV" items, but because of this I have to turn on my turbo boosters as I pass by that end cap on the aisle so my kids don't scream for them. "But Mom" Asher screams, "You can make ANYTHING in those".

Rocket Fishing Rod - As if fishing normally isn't simple enough....they need to make a rocket booster that shoots your line out to the water ever so gracefully and helps catch TONS of fish. I thought the art of fishing was bait and timing?

Sure makes "SCENTS" to me!

For all of you that don't addiction to scentsy warmers and the bars has gotten out of control, so out of control that I started to sell it. Not actively because I have about zero time between work and my family, but just as needed. I love all the smells and changing them, plus they are good to have on hand for a quick gift, so if anyone needs me!

To Post or not to Post...

OK, so for being someone that I consider pretty computer savvy....I'm actually stumped. So my laptop is starting to give out on me. Luckily we have our desktop, which is consumed with Quinn's stuff making it hard for me to do much. Nevertheless I can't figure out how to "quickly" get my pics from the laptop to the desktop. My flash drive is not co-operating...ughh.. So hang tight until I get it all figured out.

Enough Said!!!

Family page....Family Pics?

I love that I named this The Bennett Family and have yet to post any family pics. I tend to do that a lot. Email friends and family pictures...but someone I "forget" to add my own pics. This may be due to the fact or several body image issues I have! "The camera adds 10 lbs is an understatement!"

I promis I will try to weed through the few I have that would actually be OK to publish.
