Lost Titles

This is me with the worst case of writers block ever.

The past few months have been...well, busy. Life moves like a tornado with a half dozen children under 7, and it has worn me out a tad. I have sat down at my computer a bajillion times only to end up staring at it, and then I end up turning on old episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond.

Brain candy. My mind craves it come 8pm.

If I could, I'd like to share what posts could've, would've, should've been titled in the past few months if they would have been written. I like to refer to these recent months as the 30's Fog. Or the Lot's Of Children Fog. Either is appropriate.

Anyway, lost titles of 2011...

"3yr Olds Who Boycott Wearing Pants"

"Is That Juice Or Pee On The Floor?"

"The Newbies Guide To Explaining Why Baby Brother Looks Different Than His 5 Sisters"

"The One About Not Going To The Bathroom Alone Since 2004"

"Local Mother Runs Over 4 Lane Dividers At Chickfila"

"Half Dozen Children Thought To Have Given Woman Gray Hair"

"Gym Member Comes To Spinning Class With Hole In Back Of Her Workout Pants"

"Same Member Wants To Come To The Cardio Theater And Sit And Eat Popcorn Instead Of Working Out"

"Neighbor Kids Move Into The (Savvy) House Next Door"

"Eating Whats On Your Plate And Then Finishing Whats On Your Kids Plates Proves Not To Be The Best Diet Plan"

"Using Your Crockpot Isn't A Time Saver If You Forget To Plug It In"

I mean, those are just a handful. Clearly, life has been crazy :).

So, I have wanted to share more, write more, say more, but the ol' mind has been tired, friends. The holidays were fun, but I'm kinda ready for things to settle down and resume a normal routine.

Any ideas for some posts? I am even way behind on reading blogs, I think my Google Reader has given up on me. I have some emails with questions that need answers...but maybe I'll just post them here? Anyone want to know anything about our crazy little family?? Not that we're real interesting :).

More kids? What do we eat? What do we drive? School? Marriage? Multiples? Do we have a schedule?

I'd be happy to share about anything, you know, within reason :).

Love them all and can't wait for the ones you'll have in store for us in 2012!! Happy New Year!

PLEASE tell us:

1) If you plan on having more children and whether you would like more girls, boys, multiplets, etc.

2) How you came to name each of your children.

3) What a day in the life is like in your home OR what your schedule is.

4) What "C" name did you chose for your son before you came up with the name Lincoln?

PLEASE ANSWER... I have been so curious for the longest time :) :) :)

I'd love to know (if you are want to tell us!) these few things:

-If you plan on any more kids and when.

-How you came to know Christ

-The story about explaining how baby boys are different than girls! (sounds too funny!)

Love your blog!

Thoughts for the day said...

I totally enjoy every one of your blog posts and if I lived closer would love to help you sometime. (I am in Oregon) You are an inspiration even for this 57 year old grandma of six. You are doing well with all of your little ones and even keeping your marriage healthy while you are being mommy to little people. Good job.

Sarah said...

these are awesome! Thanks for making me smile!

oh and I want to know how you explained baby brother! haha! I've wondered many times when one of our girls is going to ask......

I would love to know the answers to the questions commenter #2 (anonymous) asked. Plus, could you ever see yourself with another set of twins?

Marva said...

Missed you! I would love to hear about anything that you want to share. Hubby and I only have twins but find little time for ourselves (as a couple). So, I would like to see a post on how you guys find time for "ya'll"! Blessings!

When you don't have the brain power to write for us ... just give us the titles and we'll fill in the blanks. Just think, our stories might even be funnier than the actual story.

You could even just write the title and ask us to write the story in the comments section. That is sure to be good for a laugh or two.

Or ... give us a picture and let us tell the story?

:) :) :)

Would love to hear anything! I've always wanted a "big" family, but don't know how I'd manage...not the most organized person and my 2 little ones keep me so busy...but would love more hopefully one day. I love getting tips from other families on how they make everything work! Love your family! :-)

I didn't have a question until I saw another one that somebody posted-I'd like to know what the "C" name was for Lincoln too :)

and the "is this pee or juice" post CRACKS ME UP!

and just to make you laugh-my Godson's 4 year old sister loves to watch when I change George because he has a PENIS and SHE doesn't (she opens her eyes REALLY big when she says this and EMPHASIZES the words I have in big-it's hilarious!)

I would like to know:

1) Do your children do chores?
2) Do all your daughters share a bedroom?
3) Do you have a household binder?
