I'm Wondering...


Who stole my baby boy and replaced him with this:


This...this...young man. This young man whom (who?) I will be bringing to take his driver's permit test tomorrow.


This young man who (whom?) will soon be driving. DRIVING! When just last week, I swear to you, he was still calling me "mama", wearing diapers, and sitting in a high chair.


And now, suddenly, he's going to be able to DRIVE? A car? With a real engine on real roads with other real drivers???


Lord help me. I'm not sure I have the intestinal fortitude to get through this.

Folks, this may be just the time buy stock in Depends. I think I'm gonna need 'em.

(PS...how do you teach a kid how to drive?!!?)

  2. I'm fairly certain you let someone else teach them:) But, what do I know, I'm still a mother to toddlers. I'm sure I will blink and be posting this same thing.

  5. I take my son to the other side of town for his drivers ed class every morning so he's there at 6:30 am....... ad hopefully tonight while the little girl is at Awana's he and I will go driving......

    How many hours do they need by you? her in IL the kids need a permit for 9 months, 50 hours of practice (10 night time) and be 16 to get a license to drive on their own

  6. My siblings and I all started out for the first 5 lessons just sitting in the driver's seat, learning where everything is. Next 5 lessons were practicing going from the brake to the gas, back to the brake (and a few "watch-out's!!" to keep it interesting). And practicing using the blinkers.

    When we finally got to actually turn the car ON and drive...we spent the first 10 lessons driving through a cemetery...low speeds, no other traffic, lots of "intersections". And of course, the lesson of --- drive like an idiot, and you'll end up here with everyone else you killed...

    I'm surprised we all passed our driver's tests and didn't just need therapy!!!

    Good luck!

  10. WHY must they go and grow up? What a handsome young man though. (But seriously, I have met you, I don't think there's any way you could possible have a child that will soon be driving. Just sayin.) :)

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
