It is Thursday, if you didn’t know this already, which means I’m having a “mommy free day”. I have been loving these days lately because I can clean, nap, watch TV that I wouldn’t watch in front of the kids (hello Real Housewives and the Kardashians and mine and Andy’s new favorite, Honey Boo Boo!), and take long, hot showers.

Bliss.

Andy is probably going to be real sad when I get friends because I have been keeping this house CLEAN, y’all. Granted, I clean for hours and the two tornadoes whip through and mess it all up, but I’m like vacuuming every day, sometimes twice a day. The laundry is always caught up and put up. The dishes are mostly always clean.

AND

I have been a cooking machine. I’ve been cooking so much that I’ve decided one day next week I will share some recipes with y’all.

Go ahead, drop your jaw in awe and shock. It won’t hurt my feelings.

Tonight I’m cooking HOMEMADE pizza. I even made the crust Tuesday night and have been letting it sit and be glorious just for tonight.

Oh, yes I did.

Just call me super mom, thankyouverymuch.

Maybe if I start posting recipes and get a little crafty and all fancy like my mom will claim me as her favorite blogger again.

Oh, I didn’t tell you?

Since being in Tennessee I have found out that my mom has another favorite blog.

In fact, she’s been calling itΒ  THE blog.

For example: She says to me, “Tiff, did you see what was on the blog today?”. I’m all like…. ?????? I didn’t blog today ??????

Oh, no ma’am. She’s not talking about me, her favorite daughter. (ha.)

She’s talking about another blogger, who I admit is totally fabulous and amazing.

Whatever, mom. I can handle it.

Another reason I am super mom is because I actually got some pictures of the kids.

Since I decided to enter Ryder into the Gerber baby contest (and Rory!) I wanted to get some cute pictures of her.

Let me tell you something that you probably have already picked up on about Ryder.

She is a mess.

I’ve never seen any kid in the world with as many expressions and faces as her. The kid is hilarious. She will make the craziest faces and each and every one describes exactly what she is feeling or thinking.

So I took all these pictures of her and seriously had 108 pictures that were cute and hilarious because of her expressions.

None of them are smiley cheesy pictures and I love that.

You are welcome for the cuteness overload that is about to hit you.

And how could you say “no” to these hands????

She was actually making them at Rory, which is just precious. So Rory came over and sat with her and all was right in the world.

These kids are little BFF’s. True, they fight some and are too rough with each other for most of the day, but they also play so well together and just love on each other all day.

I wanted to get some pictures of them before school this morning but Ryder had it in her mind that it was time to GO and she wasn’t having it. Rory was actually looking at me and smiling too, which NEVER happens.

Well, I’m off to pick the stinkers up.

Rory and I are going shopping for Andy’s birthday tomorrow before we pick Ryder up.

I tried shopping with her the other day but she was insistent on getting him a bright purple shirt with pink argyle. Which is fine if your husband likes it, but have you met Andy??? He won’t even hardly wear red because he fears it isn’t manly enough.

Happy Thursday!
