Random SAHMdom

That’s my lame attempt at letting you know this is going to be a random post. I’ve got a couple of loose ends I want to tie up. Or maybe just one. I’ve got nothing huge to write about, but I feel the connection I’ve reestablished with you and I don’t want to let that go β™₯

I realized yesterday that I hadn’t explained my last gem of a Story Time picture: the one with the little monkey staring at the crocodile stuffed animal through the glass.

It was so cute, y’all. A little boy put the crocodile up there for this two year old monkey to look at and the little monkey was actually afraid of it for awhile. The boy kind of chased the monkey around the glass with it. If he left the crocodile still for a little bit the monkey would muster up some courage and start to explore. It was sweet. What was even funnier was that the mama monkey came over and chastised little monkey for “playing” with the stuffed animal. You could tell that she was making sure he behaved and watched out for those weird animals on the other side of the glass (us).

We saw Fireproof tonight. It was my husband’s birthday today and we had dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. Glory of all glories they had NTN machines. This is the coolest trivia game to play when you’re out and about. We almost decided to stay there and watch the Auburn game or the World Series (there were about 72 tvs in the place so we could take our pick) because it was raining outside. But we went to the movies anyway. I AM SO GLAD WE DID.

Fireproof is the best movie I’ve seen in a while. No sex, no drugs, no language, no violence, no nudity. It was justΒ a good movie that rested solely on its goodness. It didn’t have to rely on any of that other crap to make it worthwhile to watch. It was funny too y’all. Bet you didn’t think a Christian movie could be funny. It was stomp-your-feet-snort-and-cackle-out-loud-no-matter-who’s-around funny. I’d watch it again just for that. But the best part about it was the raw emotion that was portrayed about how bad marriages can become and how far a messed up man is willing to go to save his. Emotionally tough and yet uplifting at the same time. This is going on the “must see” list we’re going to make the girls watch when they get older. I’m telling you, you won’t be disappointed. And it’s based in Albany, Georgia. Shout out to mah home state!

Let’s see. If you have a toddler who’s as active as mine is here are a couple of tips:

  • hide the gum
  • hide the cats’ water dish
  • close toilet lids and shut the bathroom doors
  • hide your all-powder (and expensive) makeup
  • hide the Q-tips
  • hide the pens
  • hide the salt shaker
  • hide the tissue
  • hide the remote
  • hide your purse
  • hide


Have a great weekend. Go see Fireproof.

I'm a photographer and homeschooler Dream = travel blogger. We move around every couple of years. That's fine, I love seeing different parts of our great country and the world. Great things: Jesus, traveling, photography, eating, sewing, scrapbooking, reading, shopping...not necessarily in that order.

  1. hahaha! I LOVE your tips for an active toddler! Hid the Cat’s Water Dish??? Seriously??? too funny! Thanks for your comments on my guest blog post this morning from BATW! In answer to your question about how I get BIG-D to put up/go along with my shenanigans – well he is just awesome that way. He is much more reserved than I am, but he is such a good sport, and basically says, “as if i had a choice”. but he is usually only kidding (well, a little). HAHAHA! Anyway – cute blog you have here!

  2. Hey thanks for the tip about Fireproof. I was thinking about seeing it and now I am sure I will.

    We not only have to hide the dog’s water, but their food and the garbage can. An chalk. Apparently chalk is a tasty member of some food group I am not familiar with.

  3. If you can find the movie “Flywheel” at your local library or video store it is good too. It is the first movie produced by the church who did “Fireproof”.

  4. You need to add NEVER but NEVER upon pain of death allow the movie “Parent Trap” to be seen!! (haircut scene)forget the hide-DESTROYTHISMOVIE!!

    They also must never know you clean the toilet–if you ignore this and think it’s all sweet and crunchy granola mommy to sing cute songs to your toddler while they watch you do ALL your chores (including sticking and swirling a brush in the potty)–then at least pray it is hubby’s toothbrush they copy you with instead of your own!

  5. Wow…it’s amazing how quick you forget what those little minds and hands will get into – thanks for the tips…we’ll be needing those pretty soon!

  6. Ooooh, I definitely want to see Fireproof with my husband! πŸ™‚ I read a not-so-impressive review of it today and wasn’t sure, but now I do want to see it. Did you see Thr3e?

    And in answer to your comment on my blog (under BPOW), the girl is back but I haven’t heard anything from her and don’t know how she is. I don’t know her, lol. They just moved in. I’m glad I heard her yelling, though!


    YES, another Jeeves and Wooster fan! hehe My husband I watch it all the time – I want to buy the seasons! Have you read the books? I did start reading it out loud to my husband but we haven’t finished (I’m not sure he could really get into it because I was reading it and he was playing Playstation 3, lol).

  7. thanks for the love and support here lately.

    i like the hiding game. what’s really funny is when she starts copying you and you’ll not be able to find things like, the cat *in the dryer*…heeheeheeheehee…i hid my cousin there once too.

  8. Can I add a couple to your list ? Lock up medicines, lock up toiletries, lock up the refrigerator, lock up plasticine, lock up paints, lock up cat food, lock up keys (and then forget where you hid the keys for the keys). Louise
