Sorry I haven't blogged in forever! Things are CRAZY! Am seriously so blessed but seriously soooo busy, spent all morning sobbing! Seriously just balling, can't believe how fast Alivyiah & Tridger are growing up, its nuts!! If you'd of told me they'd of changed this much I'd of never of believed you! In the fall they start the 15-month-and-up joy school! So today is they're graduation from the youngest level of pre-preschool!! Every time anything ends no matter how teensy slash trivial, it involves cappin-gowns and it's called graduation!! So exited for them to graduate from non-nursery, to graduate from baby einstiens to little einsteins, to graduate from younger nursery to older nursery, to graduate from book baby to story time, to graduate from high chairs to boosters, I could go on all day!! SO CRAZY!!!!!!

There grad announcements I made are super cute and I'd totally post them execpt JJWT's all worried about creepers and stockers. COnGrAduLaTIoNS, tWiNs!!

TAMN, can you please use more EXCLAMATION POINTS when you describe your life? A few of your sentences only had ONE! What is up with that? Everything about your life deserves at least TWO!!

Sarah said...

TAMN, I'm seriously concerned about you. The twins's are over a year old now and you still dont have another bun in the oven. Even if you got preggo TODAY the twinses will be almost 2 by the time another baby came along.

No affense, but thats gross.

Seriously, my mom can't wait for me to get my PhD -- it seems like the older you get the fewer cappin gown ceremonies you have -- I mean we had one for when I "graduated from the singles ward" -- soooo sad for the frumpers who leave the singles ward through non-graduation means like aging out or getting sick of it or going on missions or moving away. But other than that its been a lot of yawner uckers lame-o work stuff without a lot of graduating ceremonies with paper hats. I think the more you parade around to "pomp and circumsince" the more meaningful it becomes. I guess I won't REALLY feel like a graduate until I graduate from being a pathetic half-woman to being a mom. The ceremony we'll have when I see that special pee stick will be like nothing you've ever seen. Hope it happens before I finish my degree, people with terminal degrees are terminally BoRiNG -- shows you were unfertile/inrighteous/don't understand The Plan. Wish I could be at your graduation but I have to plan my hubby lover's graduation from working two years at his firm to working for three years. Yes it will involve mortarboard sanwitches.

So sad that your twins weren't co-valedictorians of their preschool graduating class. (I noticed you avoided mentioning this). It hurts when our kids don't quite measure up doesn't it?

Kerry said...

loved this! What is the deal with all the "graduations" for every basic thing in life!?

kris said...

best. post title. ever. had to read it three times to figure out how to say it.

Trent!? said...

Wow.

"If you'd of told me they'd of changed this much I'd of never of believed you" is really an impressive sentence.

Well done.

Megan said...

I love how you always apologize for not having posted in 'forever.' Perfect.

When Tridger graduated from being born and visited the pediatrician the first time, did you and JJWT play "pomp and circumcision?"

Sarah said...

Too funny because my 4 year old had preschool graduation today complete with P&C and paper hats. For superlatives she won "Miss Perseverance" while two other girls got "Best Hair" and "Best Dresser." YIKES!!! What am I doing wrong??? My kid is being defined by her CHARACTER and not by her LOOKS! You'd think we live in Zion!!! (Mercifully, we don't.) What should I do TAMN???

P.S. - I think it's cute that you're pretending to be sad about them growing up when really you're just dying for them to be old enough for chores and to go off to school all day. Go on, admit it, I'm right.

"If you'd of told me they'd of changed this much I'd of never of believed you!"

Genius!

We have my son's preschool graduation this week and I can't wait to wash my hands of preschool--and the graduations that go with it (this will be my sixth one, two for each kid, since you have to go through it whether you're coming back next year or not)--forever. At my daughter's, the parents had to chip in on a massive professionally done balloon archway-thingy--that cost about a million dollars--for the ceremony. For preschool! And, of course, the professional cupcakes, mini-grad caps, programs, etc. And these weren't even members of the church (yes, I sent her to a non-denomination, Christian preschool--don't tell!) Guess "the world" is catching up to "the world" everywhere. At least in Zion you have cuter graduates with better hair, since their moms are all professional hairdressers.

For my daughter's preschool graduation we all had to chip in for a massive balloon archway that cost gazillion dollars, mini-grad caps, professional cupcakes, programs, etc. All to make the kids feel "special," of course, even though not one of them will ever remember it. And this was at a non-denominational Christian preschool (shh, don't tell), not even in the motherland! At least in Zion the kids would have had better clothes and cuter hair, since their moms are all professional hairdressers (and shoppers.)

Make sure you let all the relatives how to donate money. It's so annoying when someone gets an invitation and doesn't know to bring money. Hello? Why did they think you were inviting them? Do they really think it's worth it making cookies, Waldorf sandwiches and lemonade if they don't give a check for $50?

How many invitations do you get for the graduation? Bring it up at your next Joy School conference and be prepared to pout if they say rude things like, "But 75 people won't fit in my house!"

Brooke said...

You think you're crying now? Wait until they move from CAR seats to SLIGHTLY-SMALLER CAR seats!!

Make sure Tridger wears the silk boutionerre that he wore for his baby blessing -- you have to make sure he wears it for EVERY major/trivial life event, up to and including his wedding, or HIS LIFE WON'T TURN OUT RIGHT!

And how will you deal with Alyviah's ginorm hairbow? It won't fit under the little graduating cap, will it? CRAZY!!!

Science Teacher Mommy said...

And you have to call every milestone "historic."

The Boob Nazi said...

hahahahahaha I just read a post like this.

debbie said...

My hubby snookums wouldn't even go to my sweetie's sixth grade graduation. Something about it's just elemnentary school was mumbled under his breath. For RuDe!!!

Heather said...

Dead-on with the "spent all morning sobbing". Really? Are people just exaggerating when they say that? If not, get to a doctor and get some help!

Heather said...

So are you giving Olivia a bunch of roses after she graduates?

Bryce and Jenalee said...

I'm so embarrassed for you that you still have easter stuff on your header.

Melinda in the Jello Belt said...

Gotta get my baby one of them cappin-gown things! He's about to graduate from feedings spaced two hours apart to feedings spaced three hours apart. I can hope, anyway. Do you think a ceremony would help persuade him?

Salt H2O said...

This totally explains why your blog header is outdated (but seriously, aren't you the tinsist embarassed that you still have easter eggs in your header? Kind of embarassing, it's like you don't even know what's REALLY important)

MamaBear said...

just like debbie, my hubs won't go to my darling middle child's 5th grade graduation - hello, it's the end of elementary school for us for TWO YEARS until our caboose starts! we're graduating TOO!

fortunately i will be able to go and participate enough for both of us.

GladysIcanbee said...

did Ruth have a cappin gown thing for her wedding night?

Amy said...

Laraine--HAHAHAHAHA!

Love it.

amyrose said...

I just found your blog through a link on Wikipedia - on the article about the "Bloggernacle". Which I had never heard of until about a week ago, but apparently I am "a part of".

Which brings me to my next point: I feel kind of like a nerd asking to sit at the cheerleader's table, but is it ok if I read your blog even though: a. I am "frumpsie" (is that how you spell it?) b. I post large pictures of my kids on my blog c. I really have read Twilight thirty two times.

So, can I read your blog anyway?

dharvey said...

"did Ruth have a cappin gown thing for her wedding night?"

ROFL!!Seriously, that is hilarious. One of the funniest comments I've seen here. Love you, XOXO.

Brooke said...

Stockers haunt my nightmares, too.
