From Finland to Jail

 

So when your mother starts hinting that you haven’t updated the blog for awhile… then outright tells you, “you should blog that”… you know you really ought to get back to it.

Because, you know.  She’s your mom.  And she’s not afraid to do something drastically blogworthy to make her point.

So we left off with Finland.  Where I mentally transported myself after sending my son under an {occupied} dressing room door to unlock it.

Mother of the year right here folks.

 

And while everyone else Facebooked their eminently normal holiday festivities last night… we spent ours where I probably deserved after that dressing room breaking-and-entering stunt.

jail cell

 

 

Beat that.

 

I looked at those little exposed toilets and did a little pee-pee shiver.  Ick.

 

So instead of giving you a wildly inventive story about how I wound up in jail, I’ll just say that I was supremely grateful that they allowed cute little visitors on the tour :)

jail

 

Why yes, yes that is Itty Bit stuffing his face with goldfish crackers.  Is he pretty much the cutest fighter pilot/army guy you ever did see?  (He insisted on dragging a huge toy automatic rifle everywhere.  Which is fine when you are at home with a deaf momma, but apparently royally annoying when you are out in public and pull the trigger for 14 minutes without pause).

And the terrible picture quality?  Because I was threatened with being placed in one of those cells with Bubba if I broke out my real camera.

There were a few stops between Finland and jail.

As in here:

Any guesses where we met up with this dangerous crew?

So many things to blog about… that kind of fodder doesn’t quit happening just because life gets hard and sucky.  Nothing helps quite as much as concentrating on things you’re grateful for, right?  Don’t hold me to it (my OCD self is cringing), but I’m going to try to post each day to at least focus on those things.

 

happiness

 

For today?

Happiness is watching your husband gulp the last few inches of his coffee so that he can drive and hold your hand at the same time.

 

*swoon*

 

What makes you happy?

Amazeballs friends make me happy :)
And running across a ginormous buck with a rack big enough to hang a hammock for Itty Bit to sleep in. The first thought that crossed both our minds was, "we gotta get a picture of that for Mr Daddy!"

Also, riding along today, wishing that you were with us, because you are like a wildlife magnet. We turned a corner and there was the entire herd! So I got to visit my amazeballs friends in spirit today. :)

What makes ME happy? Renewing an acquaintance with an old friend, and FINALLY meeting a couple new ones.

(Thanks for the recipe Mr D.)

You missed the part of how Itty-bit stepped across the toilet hole in the holding cell floor & it suddenly FLUSHED - his face was worth a thousand words!
