I'm Bored.

I'm bored. Not because I have nothing to do, but because with a new baby and all, I can't do what I want when I want. And that is alright. So I thought to myself: I wonder what will happen if I type a blog post with my one free left hand while this baby snoozes in the crook of my right arm. What could I tell people of interest? Well, for starters, I got a random text yesterday from someone named Braeden. It said :

"Hey its braeden...ill go in on some liquor with you tonight? if ya want ;)"

I hope you know that it took all the gumption I had not to correct his typos and poor grammar just now. Needless to say, I did not respond to Braeden, who had the wrong number, by the way. But four hours later he texted again:

"Hey what time are we getting this? or are we even getting some?"

I continued to give Braeden the cold shoulder.

"I'm guessing we aren't drinkin together tonight?"

I finally felt the need to break the news to Braeden that he had the wrong lady.

"Dude. Wrong number."

"For real, who is this?"

"No one that you know. Trust me."

"This isn't kandice?"

"No, sir. I'm a wife and mother. Please stop texting me."

And just like that, Braeden was gone from my life.

Then, perhaps I could tell you about the Clorox Wipes incident. One of my sons recently had a rash on his bum. I told him to go take a bath. He would not. I told him to use baby wipes. He would not. So he took matters into his own hands and used the Clorox Wipes. Much weeping and wailing ensued.

Hey, what about the time when one of my boys tried to thread a screw through his hair and it got stuck? I don't often post pictures of my kids on here, but this is a prize-winner:

So, there you go. That's my spontaneous, left-handed blog post. Have a lovely weekend.


  1. Dude! Your first booty call! Hilarious.

  2. I'm did you get the screw out of your son's hair? My daughter once got a Thomas train stuck in the back of her hair and we had to cut it and her hair. Lots of screaming and wailing was involved.

  3. That is hilarious! I can't wait to have kids so I can experience all of these adventures.

    Totally random question, unrelated to this specific post, but here it is: Is there sheet music anywhere for the "Jesus Once of Humble Birth" arrangement?? I just heard it on FM 100.3 about 20 min ago on our drive home and LOVED it!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful voice :)

  4. NICE post! And the whole "boring" thing...I get that. It is difficult to plan and schedule anything when there is a fresh babe in the mix and especially in your arms! I'm right there with you.

  5. LOL! When I was a kid, my brother stuck a screw up his nose. All I remember after my parents got involved was telling them, "I told him not to do it!".

    Its agravating and wonderful all rolled into one this baby boredom time...

  6. Kids do the craziest things! Haha. Your poor little boy's bum! And that screw does not look like it came out easily.

    Also, I love your music. :] And your blog is just as cute as I thought it would be!

  7. Hi Mindy.
    I've been listening to your song 'It's all about your heart' and I must say it is truly beautiful. You are one of a kind. Please don't get tired of writing songs that would inspire and motivate people. :)


  8. We do baby wipe baths here too (I have four boys and one girl). Haven't tried the clorox ones yet ha ha but you made me laugh. We have a ritual of baby wipes on their "pirate feet"

  9. PS I posted some of your videos on my blog. Love your music!!!

  10. It is complicated to strategy and routine something when there may be a refreshing babe while in the mix
