Normal is....

I am anything but normal. I have addictions (chocolate, magazines, Blistex). I am on prescribed happy pills. I eat bananas on my eggs.

But that's ok. Because it is MY normal. What is normal to you, probably is not normal in my eyes, but that is A-ok. I don't judge. Most of the time.

So aside from the bananas on my eggs.....

My normal is......

....splitting up fistfights between my boys at 652am.

....sending them to their rooms at 653am

....being asleep before my boys at night. Usually before 9pm. Don't judge. I don't.

....serving toaster-made pancakes instead of homemade for breakfast

....serving Ketchup chips for bedtime snacks instead of grapes. Who really wants a healthy bedtime snack?

....checking my email about 15 times a day to see if I have any blog comments. That is normal right?

....visiting the walk-in clinic at least once a week

....not going to the gym because I have sick children.....or it is too cold.....or I just don't want to

....yelling. More than I want to. Uh uh judging allowed while reading this post

....saying "cool" and "buddy"more times in a day than should be allowed

....laughing while my kids do the naked dance around the house and taking pictures of them while doing so

....using this {........} too many times in one blog post making it look like I am writing in braille

....eating chocolate at least once a day. I don't smoke. I don't drink. I have three kids. That is how I get through thank you very much.

....reading at least 2 bedtime stories every night. And enjoying it.

....taking pictures of everything because I don't want to lose the moment

....saving ALOT of $$$$ for future therapy bills for my baby girl

You aren't judging right???????

Ok, I'm glad to find someone else tackled the Normal is prompt the same way I did. I was being to think I wasn't normal. :)

I think those toaster-made pancakes are even better if they are microwaved. My kids love them. Sometimes I can talk my hubby into making a huge batch of pancakes to warm up later (who knew that pancakes would be so good reheated?)

Aside from the bananas in the eggs bit you sound very normal. What does that say about me?

Carrin said...

I can't judge because your normal is pretty close to perfect!

No judgment here! I have 2 boys, 1 girl, I eat lots of chocolate during the day, laugh very hard at the kids' naked time, and check my blog comments way more than necessary. You are perfectly normal!
