Haha! But it is nice your kid feels he (or she) can say that, too.
Yikes !!!! Thank The Lord for the well stocked pantry! xo
Oh no! My mom would say, throw another potato in the pot...but that doesn't always work!
Good thing you keep a stash!
Oh, those grocery bills! :)
Wondering how many times all of your kids wanted to invite a friend for dinner?
All I had to do was show my friends what my Portuguese mother was making for diner and they quickly trotted home. Strange, but fish head soup with kale isn't the kid magnet you might think it to be.
Oh my! That sounds like me as a kid.
Hey there! Thanks so much for visiting, commenting, and following my blog! Definitely following you back now!And I can totally relate to your post! It seems like for every child I have, two more show up. So every day there are 9+ kids over at our house. It drives me nuts most of the time because of the huge mess that I have to clean.♥ Duckie.http://frikkenduckie.blogspot.com
Wait until you have to call out - "OK! all family in one line in the kitchen and all non-family form a line out on the front lawn!" - then deadbolt the front door when they leave!
lol! They are lucky you have a stash and are good spirited. I was the kid at school always volunteering my mom to bake cookies, make costumes, etc. She was a good sport, too- but yikes! I think of all the work I gave her. :)~Jess
Haha, boy do I remember those days!
Oh, my, I remember those lines! ;) Actually, I would rather have their friends with them here at our house than wonder where they are.
Too funny! :)
That is exactly the kind of thing my sister and I used to do! We both know how to cook for a crowd in a hurry, though.
A stash? Stash? Are you talking about the stash of extra macaroni and cheese to feed these kids? Or the stash of wine for you, to be enjoyed after they leave?;-)
haha gotta love kids!xo,Angelaheadtotoechic.blogspot.com
I've heard that before!
Oh yes, I remember those day.
Hah! That's a good one!!! ;)
What a generous lad!
oh no, i could only imagine
Heehee...I love it when the kids say" Our parents said it's ok to stay at your house." :P
Uh oh, time for franks and mac!
What do you cook for that many?? LOL sandie
That is TOO funny! I remember when my Daughter was a teenager, I had to ALWAYS make loads of food for dinner:) We always had extras! Have a blessed evening dear friend, HUGS!
I hear ya!
My mother kept entire cooked dinners and whole cakes in the freezer. I loved that she never said we couldn't have company. What a gift she gave me and you are giving your family!
Lol. Gotta love kiddos! Thanks for visiting Peaceful Wishing. I'm now following you back! :)
So long as they stayed out of my way, they were always welcome! Sometimes I screamed for a quiet house, but now that my son is off to college I kinda miss the noise...well sometimes.
hooow many were there? XD
LOL!! Don't you just love open invites??!!?? ;)
Pays to be prepared!!
That's when I would secretly exit out the back door......
oy, time to cook hotdogs?you are obviously the place to be...
Gah! I'm not looking forward to hearing those words! ;)
Love it! Now if they could just invite those kids to help with the housework!God bless,Laurie
Love to know what was the dinner? Pasta or pizza?
I love this, I hope the kids pitched in and helped.
LOL! I had the same thing happen this weekend! I had 8 kids over and only 3 belonged to me. Each child had friends over! Yikes what do I feed them all? PIZZA! A life saver!!
Every night we have a kid over for dinner that doesn't belong to us. This is the story of my life lol.
Oh my. Those kids would be in trouble at my house. I am not sure I could cook for all of them. Take out?
How nice that you are willing to host!
Oh my goodness, LOL!
It's nice to have your house become the center! Should we all be so lucky!
Haha! Get ready for a big meal :)
What's your stash? Mine is calling for pizza delivery. :)
Boxes and boxes of Kraft Mac and cheese, and Kool-Aid!
Hehehe, the more the merrier dinner?Thanks for dropping by.
Very funny and true at the same time :-).
How funny. Well, I think it's wonderful that your child knows how to be a good host.
LOL! I have three boys and their friends are always visiting. I know what that means..lol
UUUGGGG I have been there. Usually I do not minded, However some nights I think I don't want them to know we are having spaghetti for the 4th night in a row.LOL
That sounds SO familiar....my kids love to turn up with friends and say...'Oh, can they eat with us?'...of course they usually end up staying......sometimes longer than just dinner!!
I want to be that mom one day - the mom whose house everyone wants to go to visit and play at AND stay over for whatever meal she cooks up for whomever stays over.... so I am going to practice stocking up now... one trouble is I keep eating the snacks I stock up! My children and their friends won't stand a chance with me in the house with them... er, maybe I won't be that mom after all???-Steph
haha... too funny... did they end up going home? lol
haha. I am excited for that day to come... when our little one would bring friends in our house. right now she's just alone.. there are not much many kids here soooo....Spanish Pinay
My house used to be the place everyone gathered.... and ate. LOts of times they would end up staying all night and I had to make breakfast for them too.
How nice that your kids feel comfortable saying that to their friends and how wonderful that you are that kind of mom who understands. Bless you.Sam
haha, hilarious. :)hope all's well!
The least they could do is help with the dishes...Have a wonderful day! Cathy
Do you have SPAM in the cabinet. That'll show them. Of course, being kids they'd probably LOVE it and want to eat over every day. Thanks for the chuckle today.
Ha. Yup, you better keep a stash on hand!
haha....proof that your house is a home!!
My two used to do that to us, too. There were 4 kids next door and 7 two houses down, and it seemed like most of them usually congregated with our 2 in our living room. Fortunately, Mac-and-cheese goes a long way when feeding a crowd. Glad your home is a home to many, not just a house. Too soon, it will be frightenly quiet. Enjoy, how ever so hectic!
Ha ha, how cute! :)
Brilliant! I used to throw a few more things together and tell them it was a 'medley' for supper, lol.
What's a couple more, right?
niceeeee :) you're a warm mommy. thats why.
I think that is sweet:) We have kids at our house all the time in the summer. I usually try to make extra at meal times.Thanks for stopping by and I'm your newest follower too!
Every time! :) Ha!
Oh no!!!! That's not something one wants to hear.
Hahaha, I find that really sweet, yet I hope it's not something I would hear my kids say, esp. when I am not prepared! :)
When mine were growing up, I often had an extra sitting at the table at meal time. Many learned to like a lot of foods at my house that they were never served at home.
Hilarious!!Would love you to check out my latest outfit post :)Have a fab Tuesday Hun xoxohttp://www.intotheblonde.com/
rolling with laughter!!!http://sushmita-smile.blogspot.in/
Momto8, In our house, we'd be happy to have the kids stay for dinner...but it would be take-out pizza or chicken for dinner! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
Yep, I used to keep a stash, too, back in the day...;)
Your house must be a fun party place. Is there ever a moment's peace for you?
Is this when it would be appropriate to just open a Costco in your backyard??
Hi,I just found your blog and I think its amazing :) My old blog was hacked and erased so I made a new one,and I'm searching for good blogs to follow.I follow you now,and I will be honored if you come visit my blog and follow me if you like it :) http://liliemarlen.blogspot.com/
Too funny, but the solution to the worm-sharing challenge was priceless as was the willingness of your hardy little princess to get her pink gardening gloves dirty.
Hello. Thanks for stopping by my blog 3 Wishes. I am following you now too. I like your blog!!!
LOL. I always know to take out an extra chicken breast when I spy them whispering in the corner with their friends!
Funny post. My house feels over run with kids sometimes. The summer holidays are probably going to be exhausting (and we'll need to stock up!)
OH heck no!
So cute. I'm a New Follower. Thanks for stopping by Thyme for Home.Jody
Eating dinner at your friend's house is the stuff childhood is made of. Good for you for letting it happen. Again and again. Next question: when is it the other mom's turn?
It is a good thing you were prepared for this!:) Anyway wonderful kid with a nice spirit! Take care.
Hi, I don't know the pleasures of children but this is a grat way to learn. I am now following. Always,Tarah and the City
How nice that your kid could invite others to stay, confident that you would be ready for the challenge.
Haha, soooooo funny! Nice to have found your blog!Katie xx
Now I know to have a stash for the future ;) cute kids!
Hubby even said to prepare for this once my little girl starts going to pre-school or at least once she starts having friends. Hihihi.
Your kids must know that you have the gift of hospitality!
lol, They'd be in trouble at my house :)
I remember conversations like this. About that time the mac and cheese came out!
seriously we need a like button on blogger
Yup, I know this!
Nice! I hope this is us one day :).
This made me smile! You must be a fantastic mom! I hope when my kids are grown I can have the same problem :)
Oh, well - i see the boys like to share too.
That's Hilarious! Sounds like my house when I was in high school.Came from a family of 5 kids. You are the man! I mean woman!.xx,kleemrslee-flabtofab.blogspot.com
