Weakly Writing Weekly

1.) Dear Mommy and/or Daddy…

Dear Mommy,

I am writing you tonight to officially address some issues that have come to light lately.

First I must start off by saying that you are a great Mommy.  I know you try really hard, and do the best you can, with that said...

Item #1 Bedtime:
I have told you time and time again.  I do not want to go to bed.  I want to stay in your bed all night and watch movies with you.  I am not sure why you can't understand that.  I think this is something that we can work on together.  I have no doubt that after a night or two you will see things my way

Item #2 Dinner:
Is it really so difficult to serve macoroni and cheese or tuna at every meal?  I mean maybe a chocolate chip pancake or two on occasion, perhaps some Hershey's bars.  But really what is it with all these veggies - carrots are ok when I'm in the mood, but tomatoes, broccoli and spinach?!  Seriously?! You want me to eat those things!!!  And I don't care how good you say it tastes - I am NOT trying those little sushi rolls you and Daddy enjoy!!

Item #3 Interior Decorating
I don't like the curtains - that is why I keep pulling and climbing on them!  And the walls - really they are so bare.  So please stop yelling at us and wiping up the art that Jack and I so lovingly created on them.  I get that marker is hard to clean off the wall....so stop cleaning it off the wall!!!

Item #4  Outings
I really don't think it is too much to ask for you to take us on a fun outing EVERY SINGLE DAY.  This is our house, these are our toys, I am tired of them.  If you need me to I can make a list of the 7 or 8 places that you should take us to on a much more regular basis.  Maybe you are just out of ideas.  Let me know what I can do to help you overcome this problem.

I guess I can leave it at that for now.  There are still some minor details we need to work on (like haircuts and clothes wearing) but I will save that for another day. (lately you seem overwhelmed as it is.)


Your Oldest Dear Son
(aka. The One Who is Always Right)

2.) This one time I was sleeping and…

Well there was this one night i was sound asleep....

wait....I am a pregnant mommy

I never get to fall sound asleep

excluding at 2 in the afternoon

when I can't keep my head up anymore

and pass out on the couch, often sitting upright

while the children decide to give each other make overs

after hauling my oversized, hardly used make-up bag from under the vanity.....

let me try this again...

This one time I was sleeping....it was at least 4 years ago :)

Mama's Losin' It


  1. I love that can't remember a time, "this one time when I was sleeping..." ;) I hear ya girl!

    And your kids eat tuna? Not mine. No way. Hershey bars sound good right now.

  2. Girl, you are cracking.me.up!

    I howled at that first letter - it SO could have been written by my boy! And the second one... I hear ya! (Well, I don't really, but you know what I mean :)

    Thanks for the giggles!

  3. I had one of those "always right" kids...at 31 years old, she's still giving me "advice".

    And I'm right there with ya on the sleep thing - I haven't had a full night's sleep in 15 years (unless The Boy is out of the house).

  4. What the heck is sleep? I'm sure we'll figure it out again in say...18 years. Oh and Nate seriously said to me the other night, "What is all this junk?!" referring to his sweet potato fries and portabella mushrooms! He still ate the mushrooms. :o)

  5. My kids would agree with 1 and 2 for sure! Though how do you get your kids to eat tuna?

  6. Very clever and cute! As far as the sleeping goes, well...you won't get to sleep much until they boys move out! ;-) lol

  7. That letter was great. The dinner one was spot on for my kids too. What is it with most kids and their eating. Ugh.
    What is a good nights sleep? I haven't had one in 10 years. LOL

  8. Haha! How would the world be if the kids were in charge? I shudder to think of it!

  9. How cute! I love hearing what you think is going on inside that little boy's head. I always wonder what they're thinking! Hope you're feeling well and hope to see you next week!

  11. This is great! The letter cracked me up.

  12. Yeah,I love how it is our duty to entertain our lovely children every single waking moment of the day. Shame on you for not fulfilling this motherhood requirement! :)

  13. Maybe a dry erase board would help with the graffiti?
