Hare: n. Any of various mammals of the family Leporidae, especially of the genus Lepus, similar to rabbits but having longer ears and legs and giving birth to active, furred young. (thefreedictionnary.com)
Dishes, laundry and bathing three kids leaves mommy in a cold shower by the end of the evening. No more hot water.
Right before that, A1 asked to be read a story before bed. So I started:
“ I’m gonna tell you the story of the turtle and the, the hmmm… how do we say “lièvre” in english.”
A1: What’s that mommy?
Me : It’s a wild rabbit that runs fast.
A1: Oh! A kangaroo?
Me : No. Let’s ask daddy. DAAADDDYYY
Jack answers from across the hall “What!”
Me: How do you say “Lièvre” in English?
Jack: I dunno. Coyote ?
Btw as I wrote this Jack came up behind me and said.
“Don’t post this; people are going think I’m stupid… You’re still going to post it aren’t you? Your blog is nothing without me!”
And he’s right the blog is about my life and he’s a big part of it. Since we’re talking about Jack, might as well continue.
In our house weekends are so chaotic that we rarely have time to eat, so I always prepare a bowl of hard-boiled eggs so we can at least have a quick dose of protein in a snack. Jack has made it a habit to crack the egg on his head. Yes you read right. He takes the boiled egg and he smashes it on his head. It’s partly to make the children laugh but he does it even when they’re not around.
So Saturday, on our anniversary, I decided to put one non-boiled egg in that bowl.
I think you can imagine the rest…

People tell me I should start a blog, so I googled “blog” to find out what it is. Yes, I’m relatively young but I’m technologically challenged. I have no knowledge about technology past the bare basics. This doesn’t only apply to computers and the internet; I must admit using the TV is a bit of a challenge for me. The DVR scares me and I can’t differ regular viewing from HD for my life. My camera always stays on the same setting and I hate using the home alarm system. I come from a home where my dad put up a “beware of dog “sign in the window, and that was our alarm system.
I found out what a blog is, checked out a few… ok but still not sure what I’m expected to write on it. The bigger question is, where am I going to find the time to write a blog? It’s past 10 pm; I have two kids in bed and a two month old still up. As I’m writing this, I’m looking around at my house and it’s a complete mess. There are toys everywhere, laundry to be folded and put away, dishes to be done and to top it all off my little coat hook system broke on Christmas day when we had family over and put over 20 coats on a small 5 hook board…so now all the kids and our coats, snowsuits, hats, scarves are spread out on the living room couches.
I have to stop now. Baby is crying.
Fed,burped, rocked to sleep and I’m back.
Baby crying again. This will be impossible.
I’m back. How do they know to hold their poop until you put them in a fresh diaper??
This is what’s going to keep happening, I’m going to be on a train of thoughts, I’m going to get interrupted by someone and then lose track of mind. Yesterday as I was thinking about this blog thing, I was trying to make a written list of things I could talk about. I promise you I didn’t get far.
So I guess this is my first blog post .
