Send me an Army General

I wish I was one of those perfect stay-at-home mom that can keep their house clean and free from clutter everyday. I am so far from this picture it’s depressing. When I clean a room I almost feel like locking the door so it stays clean for a  while.

Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that and as I clean a room another one gets trashed. A friend of mine often use to say to me:

Tricky little fingers

It happens to everybody to lose things right? Well here it happens in my home maybe a little more often. We are constantly looking for the remotes of all kinds. We always find them though. Sometimes underneath the sofa or under a cushion.

The Santa fever

In the middle of the night ( more early morning) my daughter sneaked into our bed and snuggle against me. It was kind of cold and she was warming me up. I was asleep and woke up a little thinking I liked the warm cuddle but then I thought she is so warm ! So  I really woke up and she had a fever…

What the TV is off ?!?

I was reading blogs again when I just realized that there wasn’t any background noise like usually…So what’s going on? What is Hubby doing? He is playing on his iPhone with Missy. Trading a screen for another? Yes but it seems easier to stop  the little screens for a while and there is more interaction. We can use Skype on it to talk to his mom in Australia now and the quality of the video is better than on my laptop.

I kind a like it when the TV is off…it is so peaceful! So if I count the screen in here there is 1( TV), 2 (desktop),3 (laptop), 4 (iPhone), 5 (portable DVD player). Wow! Maybe we should look at each other once in a while. I  miss the time when we did not have satellite TV and just a few channel. We still used to found stuff to watch but also found more time to interact with each other.

The ultimate solution is probably not to have any satellite connection and only watch DVD’s in the week-end sometimes. I will try to explain that to Hubby nowI don't know smile. He will probably tell me that we should get rid of my laptopCrying face

What is your favourite Christmas decoration?

gingerbread houseIf it’s too early for Christmas decorations well it’s too late for us. The other day when it started snowing ,the Christmas spirit got us ! Missy and I, all the sudden felt like putting the lights outside. Those blue DEL lights are so cute so we couldn’t resist but putting them up on the fence. Too bad what the neighbours might think because we love it and we put the tree inside the day after.

4 year old girl + 25 hours flight = Please Help !

long haul flightThe other day like we do often , we spoke  to hubby’s mom through Skype. She just happened to call while supper was ready so “I sat her” at the table. I mean putting the laptop at the end of the table, so it would be like she’s having a meal with us. She didn’t eat with us in 10 years.

As a mother it’s normal to run out of inspiration for lunches. I don’t pack lunches but I need to constantly look for ideas  so I don’t get stuck with the same food all the time. Children are difficult with
