High School Teachers can affect you the rest of your life!


When I was in high school, I had this fantastic teacher. He was actually the choir teacher and I loved him as the director but although I enjoyed his antics while we sang about "The Month of May-ing", the most significant advice he ever gave me was while teaching my Career And Life Management 20 class.



 Mr. W was the cool teacher that swore in class and didn't care if the students swore, ate, chewed gum or even played Tetris on the game boy. As long as you were

I got a TOOTH!

Ok so maybe that was to much of a spoiler alert but I am pretty darn proud of my tooth! Mommy tried to take a picture but my tongue kept getting in the way. It feels really funny so I was running my lip on it and then it bit me! It hurt but not as much as when it bit my thumb! Geez! Now I know why Mommy screams when I bite her while having my boobyjuice!

Mommy Brain Monday

K so I have been playing Lumosity and taking my omega supplements to try and get my brain working again. This morning I found

Mommy Brain Monday....uh Thursday

So can you guess what my Mommy brain moment is this week? Yup, thats right, I forgot to write a post about Mommy brain.

In my defense, it has been a crazy week. The Kids SO need a break from school, I feel like I need a whistle. It doesn't help that Monday was cyber monday and I was on the computer most of the day dealing with Website issues. Tuesday, I hosted my Mommy groups Christmas party, so there's that. And the excuses build from there.

So I am sorry for my MAJOR Mommy brain this week, that goes out to all my readers, my son who had to wait 30 minutes for me to pick him up from work because I took not one wrong turn but 4 (on a route that I drive 2-4 times a week) and to my husband because I over booked us tonight and didn't even clue in last night when I thought you were just being difficult when you told me you couldn't make it to my appointment.

Just when you think things couldn't be better.....


Have you ever noticed that no matter how great your life is going, something is always going wrong? Kind of like that song, "Ironic" It rains on your wedding day or the plane crashes just when the guy gets up the nerve to take his first flight. It seems to be almost a guarantee in my life.  To the point that I can not be truly happy because I just know

Van Battle Royale

*BING!* *BING!* *BING!* The seat belt reminder light on the dashboard of my semi-new-to-me Toyota Sienna flashes faster and faster. I think... You can't tell me what to do!! I will put my seat belt on when I am good and ready!

I have somehow gotten into an ongoing battle with my bossy van and though I may have already started driving, I can't bring myself to

Love Thy Neighbors


I live in a neighborhood of middle class, middle sized families. The neighbors on either side are older, retired and there are families with school aged children across the street. For some reason, they are all very friendly only when walking by. They will  wave and say Hello but there is only one family that will invite us in and that is only because their day home provider happens to be my best friend. There no kids playing outside on our street.  What happened to street hockey and bike riding? I remember a time that neighbors would

Mommy brain Monday


I didn't have a major mommy brain moment this week, I did have a bunch of little ones. Hmmm maybe my brain is coming back! One can hope right? So I thought I would give you a run down of the funny moments this week.

An on going one is that I seem to not be able to turn when I need to. I get into autopilot while driving and end up following a route that is familiar but is no where close to where I need to be. My friends and husband all have just started

Mommy Brain Monday


So the other day, I was picking up my step kids from school. I was waiting in the van in the school parking lot for my son to run in and get them. It was a warm day so I had the window down and was enjoying some sunshine when another mom pulled up beside me, jumped out and ran into the school.

I sat there for a minute or 2, checking my email, facebook, twitter, ect. When I realized

What the TARDIS?

My husband has been watching a bunch of Doctor Who episodes recently. Sorry for all you Doctor Who fans out there, while I find the show mildly entertaining, it doesn't capture my attention for long. That being said, one thing I have noticed is that the Doctor's companions will go to another time and occasionally leave messages for themselves or others.

If a TARDIS had access to you and you could go back to an earlier time, what message would you leave yourself?

There have been many instances in my life that I made choices that

Such a big girl!

Today Mommy took me back to that place! The one where everyone was so rude! This time they poked me 3 times! I got weighed too and the nurse says that I am a big girl! I am on the 85 percentile for my BMI.

Guess what!? I can sit up all by myself now! I still fall over if I loose my concentration and I can't get back up but I and working on that! I love to

Better stock up on Giant Marshmallows!


We haven't been on vacation in over 2 years. The last time, we took all the kids camping in Drumheller.

 I think.

When I was working, we had 2 weeks vacation time every year that we had to take. I was in no position financially to go anywhere. I had just gotten out of school,  had recently left my husband and was trying to keep 3 teenage boys fed. My vacation time was spent

All Grown Up?


Everyone tells me that I don't look old enough to have a 20 year old son. I am sure they are right, since EVERYONE says it!  I had a guy ask me once if my oldest 2 boys were adopted. I get ID'd at the pub all the time. I was not a teenage mom, I had my oldest 2 months before my 20th birthday. (I know, I know, that was young and technically, I was a teenager, but I also had taken Early Childhood Development in college.)

I am flattered that people can't tell I am pushing 40. And a little annoyed. For the simple fact

Mommy Brain Monday


I thought it might be fun to have a day set aside for my mommy brain moments. Heaven knows I have enough of them!

So here is the Mommy brain Moment of the day.

The other day I was up late at night, tweeting, of course. I mean, what else would I do at night? Definitely not sleep when Cadadoodle is fast asleep. That would be weird.

I am new to Twitter. I am not sure I understand how people connect, it seems very egocentric to me, a bunch of people

A Bunch of Firsts

Sorry Mommy and I have been MIA this past week or so. We had a very busy weekend and then on Wednesday Mommy got real sick. We had to take her to the hospital cause she fainted and now has a big bruise on her cheek! We were real worried about her but the doctor said she just has a virus.

On Tuesday, I got to try some cool stuff! First, Daddy gave me a bottle of something white, like booby juice but it wasn't booby juice. It tasted ok, but I like my booby juice better.

Then later at dinner, Mommy gave me

Ode to My Sock Monkey

Ode to My Sock Monkey

Love my sock monkey
Her ears are so rub-able,
Her bow so squish-able.
Her arms wrap around me,
I love when she snuggles me!

Pink and white,
I love her stripes!
Her eyes so wide,
Like she sees inside!

So safe she makes me feel,
It's like she real!
She is my best friend,
On her help to sleep I can depend.

Together we will pretend,
Fantasy and dreams without end.
I will always call her Chunky,
My very own Sock Monkey!

People Gotta Eat!

Hey there! *big grins*

Today I helped Mommy and Daddy and my big brothers and sister deliver fliers for the food drive our church is doing this weekend. We are gonna collect food for the food bank! I worked real hard being cute and chewing on my fingers so people walking by could see how important the drive is. We gotta make sure the kids in our city get more to eat than their fingers! They might taste really good, but fingers don't have much nutritional value. I think

Love at First Sight

Hi world! Cadadoodle's Mommy popping on here...I am stealing the soapbox from Cadadoodle for the night (she is in bed anyways). It is late, please forgive my rambling.

How is it that someone so tiny can so totally steal your heart? I mean babies take WAY more than they ever give back. From the first moment you hold them, you can be more in love with another person than you ever thought possible! And you never stop loving them so much, no matter how old (or difficult) they get. Even though you feel so much love, when you have more babies, your heart doesn't have trouble loving each one of them just as much! I have realized that having Cadadoodle has made me love my older kids even more, and made my step kids more connected to me. Now how does THAT work? (Shhh! Don't tell the older kids that, they all think Cadadoodle is my favorite, can't let them get to thinking they are special! heehee)

When my first baby was born,

Talk About RUDE!

Hello! *grins*

Mommy took me to this strange place today! When we got there I was sleeping in my car seat (playing with your hands takes a lot out of you ya know!) I didn't wake up until Mommy took me out of my seat and started undressing me, IN FRONT OF STRANGERS!!! There was a little boy being undressed to, right next to me! How embarrassing! It was not very polite!

Then she put me on this wiggly thing that didn't feel very stable AT ALL! This strange lady told Mommy I weighed 15 lbs 6 oz. I was a bit disappointed! I thought I would have been at least 16 lbs. I am gonna have to amp up my eating plan if I am EVER gonna catch up to all my big brothers!

After she put my clothes back on, we went into another room. There were cool things hanging from the ceiling, I liked them, they spun and danced. Another lady started talking to mommy and me, she was asking lots of questions so I started telling her all about myself. I was just telling her about my thumbs when mommy started hugging me really tight! I didn't really think it was nice of her to interrupt me like that! I like it when Mommy hugs me though so I snuggled her back and can you believe what that lady did?!?!? She JABBED me! I mean, come on! Who goes around sticking things into babies? It hurt so bad that I yelled at her! So do you know that lady did?? She jabbed me 2 more times!?! In my 3 months, I would have never thought there was such nasty people out there! And then she went on talking to me and saying I would be fine and trying to get me to smile for her! FINE? FINE?? NOT A CHANCE lady! You blew it with your jabby jabby hands! At least Mommy seemed like she knew the pain I was in. She cuddled me lots and I finally calmed down enough to have some booby juice. I don't think we will EVER go visit those horrible ladies again!

I don't feel very good tonight, that was quite the ordeal today! I am going to just snuggle my mommy in my sling and have a sleep! Good night!

Gotta Keep That Training Schedule

Helloooo world! How is everyone doing out there? I am having a great day!

First, mommy and me took all the big kids to school. I rode in the sling cause I am more special than the big kids. Everyone at the school says I am the cutest baby, Miss Allyson said I was SMOOTCHABLE! Not sure what that means but she pinched my cheek and smiled at me so I smiled back.

I met a friend at the park. She is older than me but I think the 7 month gap will close as we get older. I can tell she is gonna be my future bff cause she smiled at me. I smiled back.

Mommy put a silly dress on me today! I didn't like it, so I had to

Fairies And Butterflies

Hello everyone! *sticks tongue out*
(That is how to greet people isn't it?)

My aunty made me a spectacular mobile! It has flowers and fairies and butterflies and rain drops! When mommy spins it, they twirl and dance! I love to watch my mobile!

A Little Intro.

Hi there! Welcome to my blog! My name is Cadadoodle. I was born on June 13th, 2013. That makes me 8 weeks old. My mommy tells me I am the cutest baby in the whole world, but I wont let that go to my head.

Up till now, my world has revolved around my mommy and her boobyjuice, but today I discovered my hands. I have fingers just like my mommy. She wiggles them at me and it is funny. I have been trying to wiggle mine, just like her and today my fingers actually listened!

My mommy calls me Frog cause I like to stick my tongue out. My favorite song is The Little Green Frog cause my mommy looks so goofy when she sticks out her tongue!

My favorite song to listen to is Inner Ninja. Mommy says that I would dance to it when I was in her tummy. I like the beat. I cant wait to be able to dance to it like my Mommy, she looks so funny, it makes me laugh!

Well, that is who I am! I hope you like my blog!
