Lets Play The "What's In The Potty?" Game

Hello Friends,

Ok, now with three very little boys in the house you are bound to have your days and your days and your days. And then there are THOSE days. Like the days we play a little game in our house I like to call What's In The Potty? The boys play it very well I might add. Papa does not like to play at all. Mama, well I try to stay out of the fun, let it be Father Son bonding time. This is how it goes. Someone goes potty, seems to be Peanut that gets to be the lucky one more than anyone else, and keep in mind this is the child who cannot stand to be dirty or touch dirty things. Well this person then tries to flush but potty almost floods rather than flush, I might add here wearing some sort of waterproof bottom slipper is almost a must for this game. Then comes Papa's part of the game to go fishing for the unknown. What could it be today? A pencil, a hot wheel, could just be a whole lot of toilet paper wadded in balls, or better yet the entire role still on the cardboard tube. Or how about six little socks. Could be a binky or maybe one, two, or three of the play fish from tubby time, could be a pull-up or pair of undies. Now even might want to stretch your imagination just a bit and it could be the tail gate to the carrier truck that three year old is missing. And the guessing goes on and on and on, and oh the anticipation. But the best part of the game is just starting as Papa gets to pull the toilet off the floor because it is never just stuck at the bottom no they had to flush and flush and flush to see how many times it took for their surprise item to go bye bye, it just just adds to the fun of the game. With the mounting excitement Papa comes in with rubber gloves, bucket, screwdriver, garbage bags over the arms, mask, and goggles. This game may not be for those with weak stomaches like Papa. But Father Son bonding is so very important. Some days it takes a little longer than others but alas the item for today is . . . it's it's it's a bar of soap. Not just any bar but the special custom made expensive Psoriorsis bar from Etsy. Yay mystery solved, for today anyway. Join us next week and we will play the "What did you draw on your brother?" game. Yes, one of THOSE days. They are happening way to often lately and of course no one did it, lol.

Never a dull moment, never a dull moment. So I came across this picture just yesterday and thought it could solve part of the mystery game. It's a puzzle. you need to figure out the puzzle to get your TP. Hope you are not in a hurry.

Bless you all friends,

Sick Sick and More Sick

Hello Friends,

What a week this has been for the Catz Family. It started Sunday night with Thumper and Peanut having small fever and cough/congestion. They stayed home from school for two days. Then it hit me like a brick. Fever, achey, achey body and light cough. My cough only got worse and as I am writing the coughing spells have me making oodles of typos. And then there was the hot one minute I could sit in the freezer to soooo cold there were not enough blankets in the house to keep me warm. Hubby was loving me:) I went to immediate care today. I have pneumonia, double ear infection, and throat infection. WOW. So it was back home with inhalers, antibiotics, and steroids. I haven't felt this crappy since pregnancy. I also have asthma but not that bad until I get hit with cold symptoms. Then Jelly Bean came next with cough and fever of 103, ouch. He also has pneumonia, which is par for the course with his damaged lungs. But thank the Lord Almighty nothing we haven't gone through before and able to get through again with oxygen, nebulizers and of course the Lord's touch. Lets hope Spud and Cookie don't get this, it's hard on the body.

You know me I always love to share pictures so here is a funny I found the other day. Peanut thinks it is just hilarious.

Blessings to you all,

Mama Cat

Happy Birthday Spud

Today is the second birthday for Spud. My baby isn't a baby anymore according to six year old, he is a big boy now, lol. The highlight of his gifts was a board book that makes a cat meow when you push the button. He opened that and all else pretty much was a fly by. We decided to go to Olive Garden for supper, he loves the noodles, soup, and of course the breadsticks. We topped the day off with a giant cookie for cake. Of course the candles were his highlight there. At bedtime he tried to take all his gifts to bed with him, he is so cute. I will post a couple pictures tomorrow when I can get them off the camera.

God bless you all,

Mama Cat

Happy SonDay

Hello Friends,

Another SonDay already. The weeks go by fast it seems.

I want to share another of my favorite pictures of Jesus. This particular picture carried me through all my trials as I watched my little Jelly Bean go through his many many surgeries. I always had this picture taped to the side of his incubator, bed, or oxygen tent so others new just who would provide the ultimate care for him. It was such an awesome reminder to me that no matter what was happening that day it would be ok because Our Lord had Jelly Bean right where He wanted him, in His arms.

"Snuggling Infant" by Jean Keaton

You know, God is waiting for you to hand over all your troubles to Him. He never expects you to go through anything alone. You must remember bad things don't happen because God is necessarily letting them happen. Bad things are often a result of sin in this world. That sin will often trickle down to the innocent by stander. And when it does be comforted in knowing God will never give you more than you can handle when He is a part of situation.

May the Lord bless your week.

No One Told Me All The Rules

Hello Friends,

Ok, when I signed up for parenthood there were a few details that were left out of my guidebook:

1. Parents never ever get a good nights sleep, never.

2. Even when children wake up at 4:00 AM they have energy beyond my comprehension.

3. That there is not enough coffee in the world to keep me awake.

4. The house is never quiet; I think if it were the silence would be deafening.

5. There is never enough time in the morning to get ready for school.

6. Children will always forget their lunches even when it hangs on the door knob out.

7. They never remember there is a test to study for till its bedtime.

8. Attitude comes with age, even at an early age of 10.

9. That cleaning the kitchen after every meal included the use of a shovel.

10. That I would need a large supply of safety locks and bungee cords to keep little ones out of everything.

Oh what a morning. Thank you Lord for all the mishaps with my children. I couldn't imagine a day without them.

Wait one more.

11. There would never be enough cheese in the world to go with their "whine".

Blessings to you all,

Mama Cat

Happy Sonday

Hello Friends,

Stopping in for my Sunday prayer and another favorite picture post.

Todays favorite picture of mine comes from Simon Dewey. There are so many to choose from this artist, it is hard to pick a favorite so I am certain you will be seeing more of him posted here.

The Lord is My Shepherd by: Simon Dewey

Almighty Father,

Today I raise up to You many that know you and many that have strayed away. I pray that You will touch the hearts of those who have stopped by my blog. Shine the Light of Christ into each one that they can make a difference to Your Kingdom. Provide for each in this struggling economy. Touch those who made need your healing hand. Comfort those who may be waiting to go from this life into life eternal. May each who read this know that ever step they take in life, you have gone before them taking on all that they will endure so that You know their struggles and will help them through even the darkest moments. Forgive those who have sinned against you by the blood of Christ. Sin, it comes in many forms, help all to keep from the many temptations that Satan throws their way. Provide a week that is over flowing with blessings. Saturate each one with your love.

I ask all of this in Jesus name.
