I live with crazy people….

Exciting night here.  3:45 am Sam woke me because he was scared of noises… Long story short the police just left, there had been someone in the backyard trying to get in the house. In the chaos I go upstairs to check on the kids; breaking my policy of giving them a 30 minute opportunity to pretend to clean. Luke​’s room is strewn with dishes, books, clothes & his bedroom window is wide open.  The other kids are awakened by dogs barking and lights and voices in the backyard. John​  & Sophie wander sleepily into Luke’s room and I explain that someone tried to get in the house and the police are in the backyard and John says, “LUKE! Those are my shorts and underwear on your floor you sicko!” Luke barks back “you idiot those are mine and you  took mine the other day! The ones you are wearing are mine!” Points to John’s shorts. John bites back “is that my shirt?”  Since the police were here I let them press charges against each other and take them away. Now maybe we can get some sleep.

About jamiamerine

I am a wife, mom, & seeker of joy! I love to share funny and inspirational tales with my fellow moms. I fully believe that God intended laughter to be a form of rest and worship. I have a few kids. I have a few years on me. I have a great husband. And I love to laugh. I studied home economics in college, I can cook just about anything, but do not ask me to sew. In my graduate work I studied education and human development, I consider my life continuing education, my children are my ongoing thesis. If they survive that, I will let you know! I write non-fiction for laughter, respite, and inspiration. I also am in the process of submitting my first fiction mystery and have two more in the works! Mom life is hard work. My prayer for my readers is that, even if it you just have five minutes, you can be inspired and encouraged today. Keep it short and sweet... rest in Jesus girlfriend.
