Howdy y’all! I know it’s been quite some time since I checked in and well today seemed to be as good a day as any I suppose. It’s been an adventurous few weeks here on the compound to say the least!
Today just happened to be the icing on the cake after the girls survived an enthusiastic game of chase with the neighbors dog and the replacement bed parts I have been waiting on since April arrived for it to only be a full rather than king…just my luck right?! It does get better because the day started off with my super smart three year old knowing everything and especially more than me when she decided to wear a skirt that was a few sizes too big to story-time at the library. She only pulled it up every 5 seconds and finally found it around her ankles as she ran through the library to the playground and I along with a few others I’m sure saw the cutest little coppertone cheeks one has ever seen🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️. Maybe next time I could impart some of the wisdom I have gained over the last 36 yrs on her, but I’m betting not since she seems to have already been there, done and seen that bigger and better than this momma could imagine.
Anyway, a few weeks back we had a lightening strike and all the chaos ignited from there…the sprinkler controller panel took the main hit and of course I ran out to the main water shut off system like the complete crazy person I am in the middle of a lightening storm to shut the water off…at least I’m here to tell about it and I didn’t even 💩 my pants as lightening struck all around me…1 positive with a negative cancels it out right?!?!
Now, just the rain and lightening, would have been enough, but no, it didn’t stop there…we have been telling Miss K for weeks not to go LOVE on the hens because Mister Rooster is a little protective of his girls…again does she listen or does she have an excuse as to why she was LOVING more like CHASING the hens…well I will assume not, as I here screaming and see the Rooster attacking my sweet angel 🙄 over and over…luckily she only suffered some minor ego bruising and a few scratches…the lesson learned PRICELESS!! Now while that was happening an owl decided to swoop in for a little dessert and enjoyed the sweet delicacy of my favorite hens head and left her big fat body for me to explain to my 3 yr old why she didn’t have a head! Seriously, you can’t make it up and now my daughter knows owls 🦉 enjoy chickens just like she enjoys coconut milk peach ice cream. I mean what else can you say right?!? I only wish that had been the end of the day, but we had a visitor 🐍 who was looking for something to eat that night and I’ll just say scared the daylights out of me as I opened the coop to check for eggs when I put our remaining friends in for the night…luckily he didn’t eat our golden eggs and my neighbor came to handle the situation for me.
And now for the grand finale, I saved the best for last! Super K went flying down the driveway showing off her mad racing skills on her plasma car only to be greeted by the rear bumper of daddy’s truck. As she climbs out, blood had sprayed the concrete and of course I couldn’t see the damage but I knew we were headed to the ER. The urgency somehow escaped my dear husband as he sat trying to console my over dramatic, attention loving, toddler for not 10 or 20 minutes…a whole 45minutes!! Seriously, remind me when I have a life/death emergency to call the neighbors because urgency must have different meaning than “GET YOUR ASS MOVING NOW”! Anyway, we got a little glue after we shelled out some money only to have the princess peel the glue off 24hrs later. Note to self, use superglue at home next time it’s only $1.49 plus tax!
I hope y’all are having a wonderful week and enjoy the video a friend of mine sent me below because heaven knows we all need a good laugh sometimes! If you know a momma who needs a good laugh, popsugar has a gift list for moms with potty mouths…it just happens sometimes ladies!
