"That" family.

Today I realized something.

We might be "that" family.

Oh, you know the ones.

Caroline had on her Halloween costume. She was reading a Christmas book. She had on Easter egg socks. Her hair resemble a squirrels nest and her face was disgusting. Her feet may or may not have been the color of soot.


Sound like a redneck much?

I couldn't help but wonder... If someone saw this, would they think I wore wife beaters with rust stains, went barefoot, wore pink sponge curlers 95% of the time, smoked Marlboro Reds, ate Cheetos, drank Natural Light, and could burp my ABCs all while standing in my front yard with Christmas lights still up, with a naked baby on my hip, cussing really loud at Ryan?

After that thought crossed my mind, I was overwhelmed. I hid the Christmas book and the Easter socks. I made Caroline take off her costume and dressed her like a normal person. I fixed her hair, brushed her teeth, and washed her face. Oh... and we scrubbed her feet.

I felt much better. Much, much better. (It's possible that Caroline did too.)

LOL Yep, that's us too some days. Except Kaydee is in a tutu with her brothers shirt on, long mismatched socks and usually something sticky on her hands.

I can't believe I just said that. He totally smokes winston reds. I'll just blame it on being pregnant!

so, we were at the park the other day and my Caroline had to pee, No bathroom nearby, we hid behind a tree, Of course her skirt got on went her little brother's diaper and she continued to play at the park with just the diaper and her shirt. Fortunately the only other people there were our friends, uh redneck enough for ya or what

Oh I think we all are THAT family! I was just reading my son his favorite book which happens to be Jingle Bells and he finally fit into the Christmas onesie that someone gave us (obviously they weren't the best judge for size).

Today while on our walk, the walk where BG insisted on wearing her flip flops even though I warned her they might hurt her feet but she didn't listen because she is three, walk I gave in and half way home let her walk BAREFOOT! All I kept thinking about was Britney Spears and what a hypocrite I was, lol.
