Kids New beds!!

Okay, so we have been trying to get the kids to sleep in their own beds. Both of them do a good job at it for about 3 nights of the week. Well tonight they had their own idea! Move their own beds into our bedroom, that way they are not in our bed but in our bedroom. So we did, tell me what you think?!!!

Okay, your saying, 'They are small? What are they in? Laundry baskets?' Yes & Yes!!! lol.... This is what I walked into when I was going to bed the other night! These kids never seem to amaze me. Silly kids!!!

Until next time... Mamabotos

Happy Sista Day!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says~~
"Oh Crap, She's up!"

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don't just because you can.

If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Kiss slowly.
Forgive quickly.

Today is sister's day, mothers, daughters, girlfriends even me if I am like one.

Happy Sister's Day!


Girlfriend and Sister's Week
I am only as strong as the chocolate I eat,
the hair spray I use and
the friends I have.
To the cool women that have
touched my life.. Here's to you!
National Girlfriends Day

What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants and shopping, lunching, and traveling girls?

Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake!

Be Happy!

Ok, such a lazy day! Didn't even get out of the house!!! ugh, yes I missed church (sorry Trey) but when I miss I get a double dose of Trey. See while I am getting ready for church, Trey is on K96 from i get to hear last weeks sermon and then go and listen to Trey live!!! (in person)

So we watch the game, sad the Colts lost!!! Botos being from Indiana and all & plus they were blue & white. Your thinking why does the colors matter? Well they do to me. See I went to High School (here duh) colors: blue & white. College: blue, white ... 3rd color gold. First coaching job, Georgetown, Tx: Blue & white. Came back to Childress: blue & white. Next school... Bandera TX: blue & white!!! Hell... I mean Hart TX: maroon & white (didn't work out...) Now back in Childress: Blue & white. So ALL my clothes... literally are blue & white... Okay enough Blue & White.

Well the kids got bored... after their baths they are running around in their pull-ups, literally running around!!!

Cora finds a straw and a lid from a Taylor's cup. conversation:

Cora: Hey Jantz, get on all fours and let me show you like a pig?
Jantz: Ok!

So Cora starts tapping Jantz on his back, trying to get him to crawl around on the floor. She puts the lid inside her pull-up in the back; like the kids did at the Show barn w/their brushes... !!! So she starts tapping him, Jantz grunts and begins to root his nose into the dirt and she taps him and yells NO! lol. Then Cora reaches in the back of her pull-up, pulls out the lid (brush) and begins to clean the pig (Jantz). And then they trade places... hahaha Yes I laughed so hard but not as near as hard as the kids were laughing doing this!!! So students, young adults, ANYONE... their are always "Little Eyes Watching You!" Your actions & sayings do NOT go unnoticed. Little Eyes See & Hear every word spoken and every action acted. Don't forget that little eyes are watching you .

Poem: Little eyes upon us

There are little eyes upon us,
Watching you play baseball today.
There are little ears that quickly,
Take in every word you say.
There are little hands, all eager
To do anything you do,
And a little boy/girl who's dreaming
Of the day he'll/she'll be like you.
You're the little one's idol,
You're the wisest of the wise.
In their little mind about you
No suspicions ever rise.
They believe in you devoutly,
Holds all you say and do;
They will say and do, in your way
When they grow up to be just like you.
You are setting an example
Every day in all you do;
For the little child who's waiting
To grow up to be like you.

House Cleaning with the Kiddos

So Yesterday I come home. I go to Nanna's house to pick up my kids and off to the Donut Shop we go!!! The kids were excited and I loved it... seeing their smiles on their faces was priceless. So we make it to the donut shop, NO DONUTS!! but all cookies... even better. So we get a cookie each and ROOT BEER!!! U betcha... that is the best Root Beer in town. We are sitting and talking about our days. I asked what they learned at pre-school today and of course I get this answer all the time but I had to ask... "ABC's & 123's!!!" lol... silly kids.

Now we are home and I decide to CLEAN this house... can't stand it anymore. Of course the kids want to help, I have to say they do a pretty good job. So we sweep & mop and then get out the dust rags!!! Speaking of the rags, I could SQUEEZE more out of those rags and fill the cleaning bottles back up half way!!! So I would spray and the kids would wipe down... until... they wanted to spray the bottle!!! What is so cool about spraying the bottle? Well let me tell ya... its a great conversation piece, that is what it is so cool about spraying the cleaning bottle!!

Jantz: Momma is this too much?
Me: No Jantz, that is perfect!!!
Jantz: Okay Momma.

Cora: Casey, I need the spray?!
Me: Ok, hold on.
Cora: Casey I need it NOW!
Me: Ok, here sweetie.
Cora: Thanks Casey!!
(Cora calls me Casey or Coach Botos, occasionally Mommy; its the only way she can get my attention!)

Now this conversation takes place in Jantz's room. I am in the hallway.

Jantz: Sissy I am cleaning my Monster Trucks!! Whoa... look at all that white stuff! (glass cleaner).
Cora: Cool Jantz, can I help?
Jantz: Sure, you clean Gravedigger (lol)?
Cora: Jantz, lets don't fight anymore, ok? See we can be nice and have fun.
Jantz: Okay, is Gravedigger cleaned? (Just like a man, is it not? lol)

Gosh--- I giggled so hard at them two!!!

So cleaning got down, off to the kitchen to wash dishes... yes I let me kids wash dishes and water gets everyWHERE!! It didn't phase me a bit until... yes until it became a water fight!! Yep, Jantz found the nozzle spray (what is it w/this boy & the fun of SPRAYING!) and began spraying me!!! of course this was another conversation that I DIDN'T hear between them two.... Cora busted out giggling so hard UNTIL jantz sprayed her... OH NO HE DIDN'T!!! lol.

Finally, I sat down and those two began riding on Jantz's mONSTER TRUCKS racing around the house... Cora: Momma, now we can race, there is nothing on the floor so now we can ride ride ride!!!.

Then I get a phone call from Botos. Conversation:

Botos: Hey, on my way home. How are the kids?
Me: Good, in the bath right now.
Botos: Have they asked about me?
Me: No... ha. Sorry babe, lol. But boy they can clean house?
Botos: Oh those turds!!! Whenever I have them, all they ask is "Where's Mommy?" Where's Mommy?"
Me: lol... sorry but I AM ready to see you!
Botos: Ok, I am pulling around the corner.

Conversation Over!!!

I leave you with this.

Cleaning a room with kids around is like shoveling in a blizzard

You keep cleaning as they keep messing, you really wish you were a wizard

One zap and all the toys will be stacked up in place

And to put the rest of the toys away, the kids will have a race

What a nice dream it would be if the world worked like that

But then we’d all be lazy and get really really fat!!!
