Just Another Evening At My House


It's almost dinner time and Hubby will be home soon.

Somehow in that last hour or so before dinner, all craziness breaks loose.

Like letting a dog into a chicken coop.


Or a bull into a china closet.


My children seem to believe that if they all congregate into the kitchen while I'm trying to make dinner, it will magically make dinner cook faster.

And when it comes to entertaining themselves, kitchen utensils are a usual favorite.


Spatulas become swords, whisks become wands, spoons become chew toys.


And it's all fun and games until someone pulls out the rolling pin. As soon as that kitchen utensil surfaces, it usually doesn't end well.


At this point I step in and encourage another form of entertainment. Singing and dancing ensues.


Which usually goes well until they start getting mad at each other  because they can't hear themselves sing over all the other "noise".

Shocker.


While the activity going on in this video may be a bit dramatic since they knew they were being filmed, I can promise you, it's not far from what they were already doing.


Welcome to a typical evening at my house.

P.S. Sorry about my bloggy neglect. It's been a long, busy week. Lots of hard things happening to friends and lots of "life revamping" going on around here. I will do my best to catch up this week though!

Hey! You in front of the computer screen! I saw that look! Don't look so pained, jeesh! My blog isn't THAT bad.

4 super cool people speak:

I've always wanted a large blond-haired family--lots of children, including twins--but, I am 29 years old, and still single!! Oh, well!! I do have my Beautifully Unique mutt, Rose!! So, I am not complaining!! Rose is my little girl.... And she can be loud too, if you would like comparison!! Ever heard a Beagle bay? Neither had I!! ;-D

PS. I am not, by any means, comparing children to canines, lest you wonder. Just expressing my sense of contentment!! Because, children are children, higher beings than canines!! ;)

I am so glad to know that between the hours of 4:30-6pm, I am not the only mother ready to pull my hair out and wish that I had your super cool earphones.
