proud mom

I am a proud mom

Son#1 made a mistake.  Son#1 copped an attitude when called on the mistake.  Son#1 needed to suck it up and pay for said mistake and learn from it (please)

and he did

suck it up I mean

and he took it

the extra punishments that Babycakes and I doled out onto him

without attitude


just one tiny bit of eyerolling


Cream Cheese croissant bars

2 packages of refrigerator croissants
2 8oz packages of cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
around 1 tbsp cinnamon

heat oven to 350 
spray cake pan with nonstick spray (or butter it or crisco it or however you non-stick it)
layer one can of croissant rolls on sprayed pan (don't take the rolls apart, just try to unroll it all in one sheet.  For awhile, they made nonperforated croissant rolls but I am not sure if they still do..they worked AWESOME)

cream cheese
until smooth

layer onto croissants
add next package of croissants onto the cream cheese...don't press down

pour melted butter over the whole shebang and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar

bake for around 30 mins until brownish and delicious looking
enjoy warm or cold or room temp


I think I may have posted a version of this recipe before that had eggs.

I like this one delicious...and the pan never lasts longer than 12 hours in our house :)

proud of my baby

It's been awhile

It's been awhile
But, in my defense, pinterest is really....well...interesting.  And it has spots for all the recipes I try....

And, being a parent is some tough business.  Son#1 and Son#2, being teenagers, have been e s p e c i a l  l  y teenager-esque.  Like, after-school-special-teenager-esque.  And, Finn has been Finn.  Being a parent of a kiddo with special needs seems a bit easier than a parent of teenager, though, I have to say.  At least Finn comes with equipment and a team of support staff.  These boys just come with rolling eyes and attitude.  Have I mentioned they know everything too?

Good grief.

I just can't imagine I was T H I S bad!!!  I am sure my mom and dad would have something to add, but, alas, they are not on this blog and therefore can't interject about what a perfect vision of teenagehood I was and how I had no attitude, except love and respect.  And how I willingly complete all my chores and then some.  So, you will just have to take my word for it...

Tomorrow, I have the pleasure of getting up close and personal with the court system.  Yay (where is that mad face guy) and then on Monday there is IEP for Son#2 and his ongoing med changes for the impulse control issues that cause him to play video games, without stopping, for weeks on end and forget to shower. I wish there was a medication for Son#1 and his incessant need to be with GIRLFRIEND, as if she will disappear if he is not within 10 feet of her.

Even though all this is going on, MainMan has managed to continue to construct his zombie fortress with his clan of friends and plan for the end of the world, as we know it.

Sometime, I would just like to shower, without interruption.
