Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Ready to roll with The Mommyhood Chronicles for Saturday Top Five Laughs – week #44 (for us)? Because we are!

5. Child with the quizzes last week added up several quizzes and announces, “If you put them all together, I got 120%!”

4. Jr. wanted to be a tiger so he drew stripes on himself with a pen! Lovely, eh? Yeah, he did whole body coverage, we only took a photo of his arm!

3. On our older daughter’s birthday, our youngest ran into her room and jumped on her saying, “Happy Birthday!” Then he proceeded to ask her to make him a card from him…and she did! lol!

2. When my husband and I did the Pennzoil shop, we walked to get a cart. Hubby got the cart and started back to where I was, in the meantime I had started to walk with another man with a cart, thinking it was him! I looked over and realized it was not my husband and went, “Oh!” He simply said, “Excuse me” to pass by me. I turned and my husband was back a ways. I asked him, “Did you see that?” He said yes, puts his arms out and asks me, “What are you doing?” Then proceeded to teased me. We laughed but I was so embarrassed! I don’t think the strange man realized what I did.

1. When we left the house the cats were on the work horses facing our car in the driveway. When we came back they were facing the exact opposite! Funny cats had not moved other than to turn!

Week #43 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

Ready to roll with The Mommyhood Chronicles for Saturday Top Five Laughs – week #43 (for us)? Because we are!

5. One of our children, whom shall remain nameless, responded to a question in their school work with “something”. Of course it is something! We have a smarty pants on our hands.

4. Here’s how a child filled out a quiz like this:

Student Quiz 2015
mm…not sure if they didn’t understand what they were suppose to do or what.

3. Their response to our grading it, “Whatevs”….a classic Robert Gould response. Let’s just say we need an attitude adjustment towards school.

2. One son slicked back his hair like Elvis and was chanting something as he came out of the bathroom.

1. We had friends over on Sunday and our youngest daughter literally picked up their 10 year old son to get him to go in the direction SHE wanted him to go in! Bossy much? She is in the middle of four boys…maybe that enables her bossiness??

Week #42 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

I think I am finally on a roll for Saturday Top Five Laughs posts. Woohoo! Once again, joining The Mommyhood Chronicles for Saturday Top Five Laughs – week #42 (for us)!

4. Hubby slipped in our hallway and knocked over the water cooler. You would have thought that World War III broke out.

3. Our oldest wanted our youngest to come and give her a kiss goodnight and Jr.’s response was, “No, you didn’t call me ‘the chosen one‘.” Oh my!

2. I am sitting here and I hear a voice groan, “I’m pregnant!” I look over and one of our daughters is sitting next to me with a ball beneath her clothes. Then another daughter does the same thing with another ball, but bigger ball. The first daughter goes, “How many children do you have in there?” Then a third daughter does and and the second daughter asks here, “How many children do you have in there?” I think they have lost it! Now the first daughter just exclaimed, with the big ball beneath her shirt, “Ahhh I am having quadruplets!”

1. Watching children learn to use the yo-yo is funny!

And I cannot think of a fifth one….brain is fried or frozen. Take your pick!

3. Our oldest daughter told our youngest that he is the chosen one so now when you ask him, “What are you?” He says, “The chosen one.” He even told our daughter when she wouldn’t give him some candy that he was “The chosen one!”

#40 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

I am trying to get back into the groove of writing a Saturday Top Five Laughs post. I am still trying to find my blogging barrings after a month off, plus the holidays and so on. Without further delay let’s join The Mommyhood Chronicles for Saturday Top Five Laughs – week #40 (for us)!

5. When we were at Victoria Park Nova Scotia, our son said the water looked like root beer! ;)

4. Last week would have been Elvis Presley’s 80th birthday. I grew up listening to Elvis because my parents were Elvis fans. When I mentioned Elvis to the children, some of the younger ones asked who he was so I told them briefly who he was and then I shared a couple of music videos. As we were watching the first video, Jr., our three year old goes, “He can sing.” Just matter of factly. I forgot to tell my mom this when I was talking to her. She will get a kick out of it!

3. Jr. called a red pom pom a pimple and when I chuckled, he goes, “What’s this called again?” ;)

2. One of our son’s bemoaned, “Ohhh, I think I broke my tailbone.” Not the funny part. The next part is…A younger son responded, “But you don’t have a tail.” He said it seriously. ;)

1. The children were all reading Calvin and Hobbes…need I say more? It was fun listening to their pure-hearted laughter.

#39 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

It’s been a long time since I have last posted a Saturday Top Five Laughs post. Our last minute trip to Nova Scotia kind of threw me off. Without further adieu let’s join
The Mommyhood Chronicles for Saturday Top Five Laughs – week #39 (for us)!

5. Someone older in our family tried to eat a cheese stick with plastic on!!

4. While we were traveling to Canada, our youngest had a melt down. So we called my husband, who talked to him for five to ten minutes. There was complete silence on my youngest’s end, until we realized he’d fallen asleep!

3. My son passed gas on me and when he couldn’t do it again, said he wasted all his farts earlier.

2. Several of our children kept mixing up the names of family members and calling them Nanny B (a combination of Nanny and their Uncle’s name) Aunt B (really their uncle’s name) and Uncle C (really their aunt’s name.)

1. Youngest daughter: Can I have a cheesestick?
Youngest son: I’ll get it my lady.
Youngest son: *bringing it to her* Here you go my lady.

And that’s a wrap for this week!

#38 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

It’s that time of week again to join
The Mommyhood Chronicles for Saturday Top Five Laughs – week #38 (for us)!

5. I went to a birth a while a go and when I got home my four year old goes​, “Mommy, you have a baby?” He completely misunderstood me when I said goodbye today. He was really sad that I didn’t have a baby. :( Too cute, eh?

4. A few weeks ago a lady stopped by and asked my husband if she could buy a new dog house for our dog. My husband told her no and that he could not make our dog go in his dog house. Our current dog house is old and a bit dilapidated, as it was our landlords’ dog house for their dog when they were growing up. It looks like it is small but he fits in it and he goes in it when he wants to. It’s not like we can force him to go in his dog house when it is cold outside. So now we have a new dog house to assemble for our dog. Made us tempted to put out a donation box by our farm sign! Ha ha!

3. Early yesterday morning, like at midnight there was a ding-dong on our door. It was a persistent ding-dong and we couldn’t fathom who it was or what it was about. Should have known…it was our neighbor to inform us we had a cow in the road! Miss Moo has been an escape artist lately and we are beginning to wonder if she isn’t doing it for attention. You see, we stopped milking her to dry her up for her date with a bull so she is not getting milked, nor is she getting undivided attention and love like she’s been use to the past 18 months or so. Thankfully, she was fine and went right back home once she got the ok that the creaky gate was not going to hurt her.

2. Oopsie our wether sheep was so cute this week boing-ing along in the backyard. I wish I could have got a video of it because you all would have loved to witness his “happy dance”!

1. Comet, first-time heifer, likes to skip when she is happy. It is very endearing. Warm weather, new pasture or just being happy and we get to see her skip! Gotta love happy animals!

#37 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

I slacked off from doing my Saturday Top Five Laughs posts for the past month because life has had me in a whirlwind and to be honest there has been very little thought to what has been funny lately. Weird how our thoughts and circumstances can rob us of every day joy and laughter. Thought it was time to step up and re-join The Mommyhood Chronicles on week #37 (for us)!

5. Our six year old asked who invented kissing or why do people kiss? And before I could respond, our four year old said, “Because them married.” Nice logic, eh?

4. Our 14 year old daughter got peed on by one of our cats and said she now smelled like dead mice. Our 15 year old daughter told her it was because it (the pee) was MADE of dead mice.

3. Our 15 year old was feeding her baby goat raspberries and because B was not feeding him fast enough, he jumped up on her as if to say, “Come on, I’m hungry!” It was cute.

2. Hermes, our calf, has been giving the girls milk kisses and slobber at milking. They are milking twice a day and he has his side and they have their side. He seems to be finally getting use to them and is showing his affection! O got milk slobber in her hair this morning when Hermes sucked on her hair! Silly calf!

1. My little 11 month old niece cried when my mom’s dog sniffed her! Poor little thing, but I did have a chuckle.

First Milking Experience – Wordless Wednesday

I always said B’s first milking experience was when we visited a working farm in Schaumburg, IL called, Volkening Heritage Farm at Spring Valley…but then I came across this photo not too long ago. It is funny because it kind of predicted the future. What was a fun little homeschool activity turned into what real life would be like 12-13 years down the road. B milking, B has the bonnet on, with O helping her. O is standing at the chair by B’s side.

By the way the Volkening Heritage Farm is an awesome place to visit as a family. For a few years we went there after an early 8:30am morning church service and visited the farm. Some Sundays we just walked, other Sundays we participated in farm events. One of which was B’s first time milking a real, live cow. She went to its tail first! She was only four at the time and had never been around a cow. It still makes us chuckle.

Gotta love memories, eh? What memory made you smile this week.

#36 Saturday Top Five Laughs

Saturdays Top Laughs dentistmelsbbutton-11

It is hard to believe we are inching closer and closer to a year for participating in the Saturday Top Five Laughs posts. But here we are joining The Mommyhood Chronicles on week #36 (for us)! Most of them will be compliments of Jr., our four year old.

5. “That smells yummy”, Jr. exclaimed as his 11-year-old brother made him some hot chocolate. A boy after my own heart!

4. Jr. went potty one day this week and announced, “I made a cow patty!”

3. You all know I get up at 2am most mornings to do two paper routes. On one particular morning, the children kept coming in and out of our room (hubby must have been otherwise occupied or else that usually does not occur) and I was getting a little exasperated. So the next time Jr. came in I gave him a look. My older girls call it my “dragon” look and Jr. simply looked at me and said, “Mommy, you look creepy.”

2. It is fly season. Living on a farm we are overrun with flies. After the first year here, we finally succumbed to those ugly sticky fly paper that hang from the ceiling. We have never hung one in our bedroom before but had to this week due to the amount of flies camping out in there. Hubby hung it by the light fixture, which happens to be over our six year old and four year old’s bed. Our six year old tells us, “I have nightmares about that fly trap falling on me.” Guess that would be freaky, if it happened, but it is held by a tack so it is pretty secure. Hubby knocked his head on it today, which was a close call. Good thing his hair is cut in pretty much a buzz cut! I just thought it was kind of funny that he said he had nightmares about it. I have not heard him waking up, just so you know!

1. Today I hear this high pitched screaming, then gobble-gobbles. I listen for a while and realize one or two of the younger children were doing the screaming in order to get the turkeys to gobble! Wish I could have recorded it, but it did not last very long, nor did I think of it until now. Turkeys are rather interesting to observe and listen to.
