Long time no see

I just got an email yesterday asking where I have been. I am still around and I very much appreciate that you guys miss your daily dose of Crawford craziness. I think people like my blog because it makes them feel better about their own lives and children. At least you can say "well my kids are bad but that lady's kids" LOL

Anyway we are doing well but with it's getting into holiday season and I have been super busy. We had Dalton's birthday at the end of Sept and as you know we got a new puppy in early Sept named Phoebe...

Well apparently my husband is not a fan of our 2 pound friend so he wanted a dog that they could play a little rougher with, in comes Lilly....

Along with adjusting to having two puppies on top of all my usual craziness we are preparing for Halloween

Anyway I just wanted to let my readers see what I have been up to lately and why I haven't had much time to get on here but don't worry when things slow down I will have plenty of madness to share! Happy Halloween!

We all need a little help now and then

When the boy says he is stuck, he means it....

Have a great week and if you get in a jam just yell as loud as you can and hopefully someone that loves you will be near by to pull you out!

The future is clear and I am screwed

I read a different article every day on the news pages about how much we are screwing up our kids. I read this morning that if you raise your voice around your child they will grow up to be insensitive, uncaring adults. God already knows spanking causes definite psychological problems and time outs causes abandonment issues so all forms of discipline is off the table. If you discipline at all you are doomed to a life time of a screwed up kid that will blame you for everything from relationship problems to the elastic breaking in their underwear.

I also read that you should never bribe your kid to do what you want them to. So for all us that say "if you please don't act like a rabid coyote in this store I will buy you some candy" WE ARE SO SCREWED. Our kids are destined to turn out to be the weird guy that sits on park benches eating his own eye lashes.

I don't think I even need to go into the consequences we will face for cursing, smoking or drinking alcohol ever. And don't you even think about letting that child cry while you pee...WEAR A DIAPER LADY and change it when you are not busy making your child's life as cushy as possible.

The more I read the more I am convinced that either a toddler is writing these articles just to mess with us or I should be saving up for therapy funds for the kids instead of college funds!

Happy Tuesday "Crazy" Readers

You are going to miss this

That is a phrase that I have really started to hate hearing. I mean as if we don't have enough pressure on us we have to constantly be reminded that we are going to regret every single minute that we didn't spend singing lullabies and kissing our kids dirty faces.

I realize that I am going to miss them being home and safe when I have to start letting go but while my two are playing naked hide n seek in the clothes racks at the store is not the time to remind me. 

Please remember that most days I am dirty, sleepy and haven't spoke to another person with any type of volume control in days so I am sure my opinion is just based on the raw feelings of what I am going through in the moment but I am not entirely sure I am going to miss ALL of this.

Oh God I have confirmed your past thoughts of me being the worst parent in the world right? Well let me explain a little further. I think I will miss tiny clothes and holding my babies in my arms and SINGING LULLABIES because yes, I do all that stuff too!! Its just the constant screaming and messing and pooping and not sleeping that I think I will celebrate a little being gone.

Right now I can not focus on the regrets I will have ten years from now for the jealousy I have of people that sleep past 5am and only have to wipe their own butts in a day.
