The things my kids get into.

Maggy and Lila will tell you I am a "been there, done that" kind of mom. I didn't think my kids could surprise me anymore. After lighting spray paint cans on fire under the trampoline, riding motorcycles while standing on the seat, multiple emergency room and principles office visits, I really thought I had done it all. Until last night when I found myself vacuuming tiny glass shards out of my dishwasher. Did you know that some thermoses are pressurized inside? My middle son (nickname, Bruiser) was being good and emptying the dishwasher for me. He told me Dad's thermos had water in it. I told him not to worry about it right now. He proceeded to twist the bottom off the thermos, which was glued to the glass inner part, and the pressure inside caused the whole thing to explode. Luckily my stunned little boy was not hurt just very worried he was in trouble. My entire kitchen was covered in glass fragments. So yeah, now I can say I have vacuumed out my dishwasher. What will they come up with next? *shudder*


  1. I raised 2 boys on a farm and had an absolute blast. Kids are great in my opinion. Just when you think they can't surprise you, they join the army and our government gives them big expensive toys to make big noises with.

  2. Anonymous, you just made me cringe. lol. They make big enough noises on their own, I can't imagine someone turning over a big expensive piece of equipment.


We love comments! We are happy to answer questions, join in debate and conversation, or just say hi. All we ask is for respect. Respect us and others. Keep it civil. Obviously we aren't afraid of cussing but we don't like anyone degraded or invalidated.

We also know we make mistakes. Feel free to call us out. You can't improve things that need it if you aren't aware of it.

If you have an opinion share it but know if it is going to cause hurt to someone we care about we will not approve it.

Most of all have fun!!
