To have a safe place where you can air all your mama drama without judgement, cause we know you don't always have the kids in bed by 7 and make creme brulee for dessert every night.

Monday's Mama Drama (And some pics of JD's B-Day BBQ)

You know you have Mama Drama when.....

1. from 4:00 to 7:30 p.m. you turn the invisible meter on in the car because essentially YOU ARE a taxi service. Shuttling 2 kids from home to swim lessons at 4:00. 5:00- Take kid#1 to Vacation Bible School, pick up kid#3 from daycare. 6:00- Pick up kid #2 from swim lessons, take to Vacation Bible School. 7:30-Pick up kids 1 & 2 (with #3 in tow) go home. Where's my tip???

2. you are so distracted by the conversation with your kid because it consists of you telling her AGAIN that peanut butter in a bowl is NOT a breakfast option, that you put the milk away in the pantry.

3. you catch your child in a bold faced lie and say, "Oh that's B.S!!" and then the kid looks puzzled and says, "What's B.S.?" So, you then tell him a bold faced lie and say, "It means Bologna Sandwich dear."

4. your child feels the need to share this new tidbit of acronym information with one of his Vacation Bible School Teachers. Yep, walked right up to her and said, "Hey, do you know what B.S. means???" Luckily, he said bologna sandwich (of course), however, I wish I 'd had my camera to take a picture of her face at the initial question.

And Finally.....

5. you are so busy making cupcakes for the B-day BBQ that when you go to the store real quick to get something you forgot earlier, you realize you still had your apron on the whole time through the store. Oh well, it is a cute apron.

**This week's Mama Drama has bonus pictures and story!!!
My JD Boy turned 7 on July 1st. We weren't able to do a B-Day celebration until yesterday. We had a BBQ with family and friends. JD Boy loves cheeseburgers, corn on the cob, and fruit salad.

We got him a John Deere bike and a bunch of new implements (chisels, plows, trailers, discs) for his toy tractors. He was thrilled.




(That's my hubby in the background)
He played outside with his cousins and neighborhood friends. They had a blast on the slip-n-slide. I didn't have time to go all out on a birthday cake. So, I decided to make "ice cream cone" cupcakes. They are very easy and fast. You just use a box cake mix, but instead of using cupcake liners, pour the batter in cake cones. Bake as directed for cupcakes, let cool, then frost with a star tip to look like ice cream, add sprinkles.

Notice the 7 is backwards (of course).

Looks like a very fun birthday and I love the ice cream cupcakes!

#3 is a classic...I bet he had his VBS teacher rolling! I was wondering when and where that would come out as I was reading your explanation. You know it ALWAYS does, LOL! Way to think on your feet though, I'm not sure what I would have come up with!

I remember when I was younger my mom couldn't find the TV guide, after questioning all of us she finally decided she must not have actually brought it home from the store--see how out of it she is, even more so than she thought, we later found the TV guide she supposidly left at the store, it was in the freezer!!!

Hi Di - I made it to Utah! Only 2 more days! My drama - 3 princesses in a truck all day with no portable DVD player. Oh that and a flat tire, an overheated truck, and 110 degrees at 9 in the morning.

Stacey said...

Love those cones! You say they're cake cones? Where do you get them?

Lisa Anne said...

OMG, those are so cute. I decorate cakes and am always looking for new ideas. I can't believe i have never seen this. So how far do you fill the cones up with the batter? I'm very supprised the cones didn't crack as the cupcake batter cooked? I'm interested to learn more. Please hit up my blog and let me know more.

thanks!!
