Phone Pics and What my kids really think of me

1.tiff and I in our bindis 2. tequila tasting and map waterbottle labels in the background 3. ben as a deer (or mountain goat) 4. we made a rat race 5. chalkboard wreath back on the door 6. our pumpkins 7. cosleepers 8. new scarves are comin' 9. making pretzels in the shapes of the letters of our names

A couple of days ago, when I was helping avery clean their room she tried to casually ask me if I had showered this morning.  I told her no and she said, "you should go shower right now".  I asked her why and she told me that I smelled bad and when I asked her what she meant by that she said " you know, like you always do".
With that punch to the gut, I actually took her advice and jumped in the shower before jeff got home, but did it so fast that I didnt bother shutting the door.  Ben came in and asked what I was doing and I told him that I was showering, and he asked me "why?" (he isnt used to seeing me clean).  I told him that Avery had told me I smelt bad and I wanted to smell better.  He got the shyest grin on his face and said just so kindly, "but you are still so pretty mommy".
Melt my heart bud.  Nothing sweeter than you, my angel ben.  Nothing. So thankful for when my kids keep it real and when they lie a little to make me feel better :)
Hope your weekend is full of unmerited compliments.

Make me laugh and then cry!!! Kids say the most crazy stuff! I prefer to call it crazy instead of honest because surely everything they said (or in Jeff's case, drew about me) could never have been true!!! haha! Can't wait to see y'all tomorrow!!!

That is sooo funny!! I wouldn't be surprised if my kids told me the same thing (about smelling). It's so hard to get motivated to get in that shower sometimes hahaha.
