Awkward and Awesome

I am a super stalker loyal follower of The Daybook.  Sydney does a great post every week called Awkward and Awesome Thursday.  This week she asked us to join her in posting our own A & A, so here I go :)

  • Having to explain to your 4 year old (who is super staring) that her baby brother has little boy parts just because that is the way God made him.  (Luckily it took her over 4 months to question the difference)
  • Having your 6 year old and 4 year old telling me to change the station when Lady Gaga comes on the radio before I even realize what song it is(She is BANNED in our car)
  • Having to put $10 in your beast of a truck (Expedition) because that is all you have and you have to get your child to school every morning and the gas station attendant looking at you like "seriously, only $10?"  Umm, yes, that is all I have.
  • Run on sentences, see above, but not really knowing where to put a period to make it 2 sentences.
  • Running into our Wal-Mart with 2 kids and a baby carrier because the fear of being pooped on by a mass amount of birds is terrifying.
  • The mass amount of birds that has decided Wal-Mart is their home and they are not leaving.  I thought birds went south for the winter!?!
  • Yelling at your 6 and 4 year old about not playing with the blind cords and the blinds falling to the ground while you are trying to fix them.

  • The hubby fixing the blinds that fell before the girls go to bed
  • Hearing your baby on New Year's Eve deep belly laugh at your silly faces
  • Singing loudly in the car to Pink's new song "Raise Your Glass"
  • Cuddling while watching movies and dancing around the living room with your 4 year old almost on a daily basis
  • Listening to my 6 year old reading to me for almost 30 minutes last night and only having to ask a few times for help with words (She is so stinkin smart)
  • Sharing a bottle of wine after a long day with your hubby

What are some of your Awkward and Awesome moments of the week??

So cool! I might do this also, if you don't mind the steal!!!

-About the birds, mine and David's theory is that with global warming and all that, Texas is now the "south" where birds fly for "winter". Plus, they are so stinking confused with the weather changes I am not sure they even know where they are!

-Pink's "Raise Your Glass" is my guilty pleasure song to sing as loud as I can to in the car! ;)

Hmmm, a new blog to possibly follow...yeah! I am loving this blog world! I laughed so hard at your awkwards because I have the same problem with sentences. And the blinds...aaaarrrrgggg!!! Seriously what is the deal?! S and A are in them all the stinkin time and it drives me bonkers!

Need to listen to Pinks new song, sad I haven't kept up with music lately. And just out of curiousity, Lady Gaga is banned because you don't like her or because of her songs? I don't listen to her much, so just nosy ;)

Nice! Here's some of mine;
Awkward- realizing after it's too late just how dumpy I look wearing crocs, patterned socks, too-tight yoga pants, and an oversized shirt that isn't even mine......oh man,

Awesome-Cooking dinner every night this week instead of wimping out and going out :)

Yvonne, steal away (since I stole it)

Kristi, she (along with Kesha) is banned because of the lyrics in their songs (not appropriate at all)

Amanda, super great job cooking dinner!!
