Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

On Second Thought, I'll Pass on the Pringles

THIS Post by blog sister Sally of Whimsy Capricious reminded me of a story...

We had just made the 9 hour trip back from my folk's house about 3 years ago. We stopped at Publix 5 minutes from home so we could get milk and dinner. My husband went in and I stayed with the boys. The van was full of crap, nobody had shoes on, I was a total wreck and I was beat. Suddenly I heard the dreaded words from Son#1, 'Mom... I have to pee."

I'm pretty sure one of the boys was asleep and the thought of getting them all out of the car, with shoes on, and taking 3 boys ages 2, 4. and 6 into the restroom was more than my frayed nerves could handle. So... I decided to do what mothers of boys sometimes do, and I looked for something for Son#1 to pee in. The only thing I could find was an empty Pringles can. See... when you travel with kids... it's all about the snacks.

Well, Son#1 peed in the can and then looked into it and said, "Hey, I see chips floating in there." Evidently there were Pringles remnants in the can. Next thing I know, sleeping boy is now awake, all boys are unbuckled, there is much positive energy in the car and I'm hearing, "Wait! Mom! I want to see the floating Pringles!" and here I am, sitting in the back of my mini van, with a Pringles can full of pee and floating chip crumbs thinking, "I so did not expect my life to be like this."
