From the mouths of babes


This is a SUPER old picture of Ryder + Hayes when I went to Virginia with them, but I didn't have any other pictures from yesterday and I love this one so here ya go.

So I have been nannying a bunch lately!! It's nice because it's not everyday so I can still focus entire days on making signs but then every other day work for a few hours and then go and nanny the boys! It's a welcome break for sure. Their mom is awesome, I drive one of their cars + she gives me a card to take the boys to do whatever they want, or whatever I decide they will love for the day haha Let's get names straight so I don't have to say stuff like "the older brother" and "the younger brother" I'm too lazy to type that out 100 times. So Ryder- 6 year old, Hayes (sounds like Haze) the 4 year old

So yesterday we had to drive their older brother to his hockey game a few cities away so it was like over 2 hours there driving and back. We dropped him off at hockey and I, of course and as always, had to pee. So I saw this random strip mall and a random smoothie shop and decided we would go get smoothies and take a bathroom break in there! It was in Scottsdale and if you know anything about Scottsdale, it isn't nicknamed Snottsdales for fun. It's full of rich (typically old) people or people with their spoiled kids and yeah. Disclaimer: NOT everyone is like that, some people are probably super nice and stuff, I'm just saying that's what Scottsdale is known for; rich snotty people. 

Anyways, let's just call out that smoothie place, it was called Grabba Green and as soon as we walk in, Ryder plugs his nose and says super loudly "UGHHHH IT STINKS IN HERE!!!" and then he continued to make remarks on the stinky smoothie shop. And it did stink cause they were boiling weird veggies in a pot and the whole place was very "healthy" in a weird way. So we rushed to the bathroom really fast and Ryder goes "Thank goodness we came in here, that smell was about to make me throw up!!" After we were all done, it was a chore to get Ryder to leave the bathroom haha he REALLY hated the weird smell. So I ordered really fast as Ryder and Hayes ran to the nearest exit to escape. 

I walk up to the counter and the girl goes 'K what do you want?' 
me-  Oh, I've never been here before, one sec
girl-  ugh, well do you want food or a smoothie or juice?????
me- a smoothie.
girl- *rolls eyes and acts like I the most annoying person in the world* K. well do you want fruity or...?????
me- uhh.. sure...
girl- *rattles off flavors like she's being forced to at gunpoint*
me-... the first one....

So I ordered and girl was so rude and weird, like sorry the menu has 100 items and I want to look at it for 1 minute. And it was almost $8!! For some fruit put into a blender. 

While this is happening and I'm waiting for my smoothie, the boys insist on playing outside/ leaving asap cause they couldn't stand the smell anymore as I am standing by the open door waiting for the smoothie to be done. It's finally done and the girl sees that as much as I try, the boys are refusing to step back inside, she looks at me, and just puts the smoothie on the far counter and walks away. haha I was like "really? you couldn't bring it over 10 feet??" in my head of course. 

When we got into the car, Ryder was like "Can we please never go there again??" "yes, we will never go there again, it was stinky and they were rude!"
Ryder- Yeah, they probably shower in pee!!
Me-.... and poo...
I didn't even bother protesting and saying something like No potty talk! Cause I didn't care and I was bugged and it was funny. So long story short, I was glad Ryder made a scene and said what we were all thinking (aka how it smelt like dead rats in there, yeah that's dramatic I know) 

Anyways, these kids are funny and I'm having so much fun playing "mom" with them. Every time we play a game Ryder goes "K so someone who is married has to be the mom, oh looks like that's you!"

They both say funny stuff, Ryder just talks more so I remember it more :) It was also Hayes's birthday yesterday so I wanted to make sure he had a really great day! After stinky smoothie shop, we went to Jump Street (one of those places with 104395534 trampolines) and they were in heaven!

It was a great day with those sweet kiddos.

  1. AWWWWW! I love these kids and I don't even know them lol. How cute! I'm sure people do think you're their Mom because they look like they could belong to you lol. Whenever I'd take the kids out in public and I was talking to people I always felt the need to add in like "we should tell your Mom that" or "Mom wants us home by 3" things like that so everyone nearby could hear that they weren't MY kids lol. I always felt so awkward about that because sometimes I felt like I would be looked at as like a bad Mom or something because I'm pretty chill and let them do whatever they want lol. This sounds like the kind of job I need lol. "Just take my car and have fun!" Except I don't really like driving kids around. Maybe it's because I have no idea where I'm ever going since I move so much, but it just makes me nervous so I would have been super nervous to drive two hours somewhere. They're so distracting lol. But this sounds fun. I love little boys. I secretly hope I have two little boys ;) SOMEDAY

    1. hahah I bet they would love you, too!! People ask alll the time if I'm their mom and I used to be like "No I'm just the nanny" But now if people say "your kids look just like you!" or something, I'm just like "thanks!!" But I do that same thing, ask them something like "should we tell mommy about blank??" I have gotten a lot of people telling me I'm so young to have kids and in my head I'm like "well, not really" cause I'm not THAT young! And I am the same way, kind of just let them do their thing and run wild and as long as it's safe, I could care less! Kids are kids! There's only one way to find out if you'll have boys... ;)

  4. That was greatness! I probably would have been laughing the whole time after leaving. On a serious note though, I hope you get a lot better service should you ever decide to go back there. That sounds like she had a major sour face attitude! UGH!

  5. What a downer on the cashier lady at the place. And the fact that it was stinky, at least if it had to be stinky the lady would be nice. And for $8! Kids are incredibly fun to have, especially their comments. The other day I told Sophie to go to sleep, and she responded with "or what?"

  6. Ugh I hate when service people are rude to you! I mean I understand having customers be mean to you which puts a damper on your mood but it doesn't mean you should be mean to someone who didn't do anything to you! I am suuuper nice to those people so when they're mean to me it's really annoying! Kids are sooo funny! I feel like I'll giggle at a lot of stuff my kids says that I'm supposed to punish them for hahaha.
