We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

10 stupid things I've done

 I don't think I've ever made a list on here, but while I was driving home from my workout at the gym I was thinking about some of the ridiculous things I've done in my life and decided that it would be fun to share them with the world. I can't believe McKay has had to put up with this stuff! Poor, poor man. I'm so lucky he tolerates me.

1. Too embarrassing and awful and cruel to post.

2. ALSO too embarrassing!

3. Try to make a joke before really thinking about how funny or NOT funny it really is. In my case they're usually NOT funny. A friend of mine explained to me that I'm maybe funny 75% of the time. I just think she was being nice.

4. I bought a dress that I cannot for the life of me accessorize and now it sits sadly in my closet. Its too short so it has to have leggings and they have to be brown. Its a tank top so it also has to have a shirt underneath it. BOTH of those I have and now I just need the shoes, WHICH I cannot find what I'm looking for. Mainly because I don't know what that is.

5. This is an old one, but the people involved don't read this. So here goes. I strung along my ex-boyfriend. We were on again, off again for several months before he decided to jump ship. In retrospect I would have done the same thing. But I think I would have gone out in a slightly different style than he did. I'm not taking all the credit for our break up catastrophe! I would rather have just stayed his friend than lose his friendship over a stupid boyfriend/girlfriend relationship.

6. Moving to Utah and staying a recluse. Now the people in my ward 'know' I'm the recluse and don't bother to talk to me, which means no friends. Smoooooooth move Jennifer. Smooth move.

7. Flirting with a guy that was clearly not interested in me. We were watching a movie at his place. In broad daylight! And he sat/layed down so that his feet were by me. So I just put my hand on his foot. He pulled it away. A few minutes later he put his feet back. So me being incredibly thick, put my hand back on his foot. OF course- he pulled away again! This happened several more times before I got it. Talk about making yourself look like an idiot AND creating and awkward moment. I think if I saw him today I wouldn't even be able to look him in the face.

8. Trying to control everything McKay does. It only makes me mad when he doesn't do what I think he should do and it can only annoy him I'm sure. Hearing me boss him around all the time. I'd like to think I'm a reformed control freak. . . buuuuut, I might still have some issues in that department.

9. Not preparing myself for adulthood better. When McKay and I got married, I knew the concept, but I was just more excited about the freedom. I didn't have a thought in my mind about savings, or at least not a huge though. I didn't think about car repairs, the cost of having kids, cooking meals everyday, maintaining a home! Fixing holes, washing walls, washing windows and cupboards. Yeah, those things were not in my mind as I secured my life officially as an adult. Talk about a wake up call!

10. Hoarding food. I get so worked up when I buy cereal and the very next day its gone. Ohhh that gets me so revved up! With food I ruh-eeeealy want, I hide it. And when McKay finds it. WHEN not IF. When he finds it, I get so mad, because he'll eat it. If I would just buy extra, there would be no reason for me to freak out. I should buy food and then dose it with a little 'chill pill' because I need it.

Well that was fun. I'm glad I got those off my chest. Whew! I'm sure there's tons more. I bet my Mom, my friends, McKay, my kids if they could talk and remember things, would all tell you tons more.
