This one’s for you!

Posted on

A friend sent me a message today requesting that I update my blog because she needed a good laugh. So here goes. This is what we have been up to lately.


  • Blows when he is hot. Today I was putting him in the car and he was blowing because it’s like Africa hot in Texas.
  • Got his thumb nail ripped off a few weeks ago thanks to his wonderful awful mean sisters
  • Loves to wear any shoes that he can get his feet in except for his own. Right now his favorite pair is Ceci’s Twinkle Toes
  • Has a new thing going on called “I like to wake up at 3 a.m. to watch Family Guy”
  • Loves to have his hair combed. He fights to get a turn sitting on the stool to get his hair fixed like his sisters.
  • Can finally jump—it’s so stinking cute
  • Carries his blanket everywhere..he even tries to take it in the bath and outside to play even though it’s 110 degrees out
  • Got two awesome new shirts this weekend that are both 100% truth. One says, “Made in America with Mexican parts” and the other says, “I get my looks from Mommy and my gas from Daddy.”

Here’s a picture of my handsome prince!



  • Is super excited to start school. She asks me every single day, “Mom do I go to school tomorrow.”
  • Loves to watch Family Guy (she got that from Daddy) and eat (she got that from Mommy). Every morning the first thing out of her mouth is either, “I hungry.” or “Can we watch Family Guy?”
  • Enjoys making my life peaceful exciting by constantly fighting with Skyla over everything from who gets to sit where at the dinner table to who gets to water the dog.
  • Skyla wanted me to write that Ceci poked her in her face and is not letting her do nothing!
  • Ceci wanted me to tell everyone she’s going to Wal-mart (I don’t know how she plans to get there because I’m not going)

Here’s a picture of my beautiful Ceci!



  • Is still obsessed with Justin Bieber. I am so ready for this “phase” to pass. If she isn’t fighting on the phone with him, she’s mad at something he did and telling us all about it. I wish they would break up already.
  • Loves to annoy me by making Orlando scream all the time.
  • Was really upset that we couldn’t drive to Wyoming “real quick” to go to Grandma Great’s birthday party.
  • Really really really wants Grandma and Papa and Ela to come visit. She wrote them a letter last week and this is what it said, “Dear Grandma, I love you. Come and visit and bring candy. Love, Skyla”
  • Had a birthday party for Justin Bieber’s Mom today
  • Wants me to tell everyone she’s being good. She’s kind of fibbing a little lot.

Here is a picture of the hopefully soon to be ex Mrs. Bieber



I recently became an ambassador for Sweat Pink. There is a fat girl trapped inside of me and I’m determined not to let her out. I have been really busy with my fitness Facebook page, school work and yelling  talking nicely to my kids. Here is a link to my fitness Facebook


Is pretty much awesome. He has been helping me work out by talking crap to me motivating me to work harder. He is busy with lots of bs work. He is studying to go to the NCO of the month board in two days. I’m so proud of him!

Ok Jenn I hope you got at least a little laugh from our perfectly boring life at La Casa de Maldo!


Skyla licks her feet

*****Reader’s note: I’m cranky and it’s been one of ‘those’ days so this isn’t going to be a happy, hooray for my life post.

Things that have annoyed me today:

  • My kids (surprise, surprise right?)
  • Crescent rolls that come in the tube thingy–every time I use them I have to wrestle with the tube thingy and it takes me way longer than it should to get it open
  • Orlando’s new favorite thing to do (or so it seems) is to take all of the dishes out of the cupboards while I am cooking or doing dishes
  • The house we live in has no dryer outlet. This means I have to line dry my clothes. It’s like 1,600 degrees outside. Hanging up whites is a pain. I mean really do you know how many white socks my husband has?
  • My husband and I share a vehicle. It sucks. End of story!
  • People who wear clothes that are too small to the gym. Just because you managed to squeeze yourself into size medium yoga pants does not mean they fit. Also I know it’s summer and all but your boobs still go inside your shirt.
  • Pens, crayons and color pencils. It has been less than a month since I finished repainting our entire house. Today I found the third piece of artwork that one of my wonderful children thought would look good on the nice new paint.
  • One of my casserole dishes broke (a while back). You all know that I love casseroles. When I went to make dinner tonight my only casserole dish was already half full of leftover casserole in the fridge. I was already frustrated with trying to open the tube thingy so the fact I had to empty and then wash my only casserole dish made me cranky.
  • Orlando’s screaming
  • Skyla and Ceci arguing over EVERY thing
  • Staying home. I really am not cut out to be a stay at home mom. I love my kids (most of the time) but I’m going to go ahead and say that staying home with them all day everyday is the toughest “job” I have ever had. 
  • Myself. I have been cranky, angry, short tempered, moody, whiny and no fun to be around. I don’t know how my husband and kids put up with me but I thank baby Jesus that they do.
  • I was interrupted 6 times during my 10 minute shower this morning. I was also interrupted almost every time that I had to use the bathroom today. 
  • Justin Bieber. I am so annoyed with hearing about what he did to make Skyla mad, where he is working, what time Skyla needs to leave to go pick him up from work, how much money he is going to give Skyla (I wouldn’t be annoyed by this if he really gave her money), what he did in Skyla’s dream and why Skyla likes him.
  • My neighbor’s dog. It wakes me up EVERY single night with it’s obnoxious barking.
  • We bought a lawnmower at a garage sale. It doesn’t work. Our lawn really needs mowed.
  • I made plans to have some pals over for a BBQ Friday night. Carlos forgot to tell me he has to work. This is the second week in a row I’ve had to cancel plans with them. (Sorry Sarai, if you’re reading this)
  • I’m out of Diet Pepsi
  • Word problems. I hate word problems. The next three chapters of my school work is nothing but word problems.

I’m positive there are more things to add to the list but I don’t want to bore you with the details of my very annoying day. I’m sure you get the point and I feel much better now. I just looked over at Skyla and she was licking the bottom of her foot—-weirdo!
