Sweet Escape

To escape heat, we went on a little adventure with our friends to the Dallas Children's Museum.

Most the time they were crazy, sometimes they were a little corny, and other times they made good use of props. We love you sweet Henry:)

Guinea Meister Added two new friends on "Facebook," Audrey and Whitney.

And Henry got a bloody nose from playing the Wii. And no he didn't want to quit.

What I'm Up Against

Me: Caroline, do you want me to be your soccer coach?

Caroline: No, I want to be your soccer coach! Ha ha ha. (Insert evil laugh!)

What the Kids are up Against

Henry: Why do I have to eat my peas?

Me: Because I'm a mean mom.

Henry: Why do you have to be a mean mom?

Me: Because I'm also an awesome mom, and I have to balance out my awesomeness sometimes.

BTW- I didn't do the laundry today, just to balance out my awesomeness a little more.

The 4th of July (As remembered on July 12th)

This post is to remind everyone of the fun, fast paced, fabulous life we lead at the Darowski household. What else is a blog for any way, but making your life look like the American dream. Seriously, sometimes I have blog envy. I see blogs that cleverly portray the perfect life with all the wit and charm possible, and on top of that it's all tied up with a nice photoshop bow and set to a sound track. I think, wow, their life is so good, their husband is so nice, their kids so perfect, and those outfits- where did they get them? Oh, and that cool graphic, how did they do that? I want to do that - and then I'm overwhelmed. But then I remember, their life really isn't like that all the time. They can put what ever they want on their blog, and of course, they really only pick pictures they look cute in, right? And they only share their awesome adventures. And no one titles their latest blog entry, "Today we did the laundry and it was fabulous!" Pretty much we all have our highs and lows. Blogging is a fun way to see others personalities come through, to see families celebrate, and to have a little laugh once in a while. Blogs can sometimes be like the "Family Brag Letter" we all used to get in the mail at Christmas, you know the one you and your sisters sat around the table and chuckled over. So what is my point? I don't really remember.

Oh, the 4th of July weekend. Aunt Beth helped us make our traditional "Flag Cake." We enjoyed the local parade, played the Wii- and made celebrity Miis. Went to Hawaiin Falls, and I won't mention the swimsuit incident. Enjoyed time at Darowski Beach and riding the trolley in the big "D" after visiting the children's museum.

Having Joseph, Emily, and Beth in town reminded us of nice it is to have family. It made me wish that we lived a little closer to family, especially for the kids. Now I'm aggressively recruiting family members to move to Texas.


...when my mom looks out the window, she sees me sitting on the fence. I told her "I like to sit there and think." My mom and dad say it's kind of funny to just sit on a fence. They say "fence sitting" isn't the greatest quality to have, but it's o.k. for now. They even made sure it wasn't bugging the neighbors, and then explained to me that I shouldn't ask adults how old they are, especially when I'm sitting on the fence peeking into their back yard.

Troll Baby

Sometimes my family calls me "Troll Baby." I think it's because of my hair.

That's all I have to say.

Our New Puppy!

Meet our new puppy! His name is "Guinea Meister." And, he is actually a Guinea Pig, but we try to pretend he is a puppy.

Impulse buy. I wanted to make my kids happy, I wanted to be a good mom. Every kid needs a pet, right? They look happy don't they?

Three days after I bought him reality struck, and I put him on Craig's List the next day. I even found a home for him. But, alas, I couldn't do that to the kids. So now I take care of three kids and a guinea pig.

P.S. I'm offering him for a pet CO-OP, if ever your children feel like they need a pet, Guinea Meister can come stay at your house for a few days. He just sits there on your lap and makes cute noises. Even Caroline can't hurt him. He's really nice, for a small rodent.
