The square root of pie...1.7724538509055160272981674833411451828

I'm sure every parent has had one of these moments.

"Little Johnny, show your grandma how you recite the square root of pi."

Little Johnny looks at you like you're an idiot.

"Remember how you showed Mommy in the car?" Do it for your Grandma honey!"

Little Johnny starts to pick his nose while still looking at you as though you are speaking a different language.

"No really!  He did it in the car!  Just DO THE TRICK JOHNNY!!!!"

Grandma tires of waiting and walks away just as Little Johnny starts to recite numbers. 


You quickly call your mom back to prove that you were NOT lying to her about the fact that your child is a genius, just as Little Johnny finishes and goes back to picking his nose.

"Oh yeah honey, he's a smart one all right."

Grandma walks away and Johnny gives you a smile that says "SUCKER!"

Kids NEVER do what you want them to, WHEN you want them to. It's a known fact among all parents. But now with modern technology, it is possible to catch some of your children's "finer moments" on video to show whenever you so desire :)

I try and tell people that my kids are weird. I think people think I'm making up half the stuff they do. But that was all before Jonathan bought me my new phone with video!! Now I can catch the little creeps in action and have evidence of their weirdness.

This is Houston picking his nose...and wiping it on me. Where do kids get this junk from?! It's not like Jonathan and I walk around doing that to each other!  I think mostly it has to do with the fact that a) he is a boy, and b) boys like gross things. So yeah, now that Little Houston has the whole nose picking thing down pat, it's only a matter of time before he starts reciting the square root of pi. In the mean time I will continue collecting evidence that my kids are really weird. :/


  1. Oh, great, now I have to watch your kids pick their noses. I have to watch my own do that!! Lol. Here's a weird one when Mason kisses us he opens his mouth all wide and sticks his tongue out...don't ask me where the heck he gets that from...

  2. Hmm Rachel...I don't think you have to wonder too hard where Mason gets that from ;p

  3. Hahahahaha sure Rach,I WONDER where he gets that from!! ;) LOL

    Sarah- Lorenzo learned to pick his nose and wipe it on us at 11 1/2 months old!! It's sooo gross!! And he does it just to gross us out! LOL

  4. kids are crazy--they sure do keep us on our toes. and totally fail to perform when requested. ;-)

  5. BTW--It was good to meet you today! I am so happy we will be blogging together at HR. What is your screen name on MLM? I can never remember this stuff!

    PS--Thank you for saying those kind words about my writing. I may talk a big game, but I am really insecure about my work. It meant a lot to hear you say that you liked it.

  6. It was nice to meet you too Christine! My user name on MLM is SarahsWorld.

    You ARE a great writer and I look forward to reading your new blogs. I may even pick your brain for ideas/help in the future if that's OK.
