Did you do this, too?
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-16Still one of my favorite videos. Hahahahaha. Hohohohoho.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-15Babies can give crusty looks and have a plethora of fat rolls and it IS ADORABLE. I, on the other hand, get called curmudgeonly and unhealthy.
ksujulie YOU are adorable and funny. Seriously ksujulie is worth a follow, friends.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-15I should start putting papers all around the house letting people know I’m the only one who apparently cares to decorate.

So much jolly spirit. 🙈🤣🎅 Keep tagging and DM’ing your holiday photos. 📷: jazmuahkidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/p640x640/25009988_133642937312649_1673800531081953280_n.jpg2017-12-14
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-14It feels good to get it off your chest, though. When I was about 8, I took my sister’s wood burning tool and put HER initials in it and burned them into our antique kitchen table. I was SUPER curious if it worked.
Uhhh, it did.
She got in trouble. She denied it. I sat quietly. But every meal I saw my guilt. Every. Single. Meal. So yeah, I was glad to tell that one to my parents (and sister) when I was no longer punishable. [my parents even gave me the table because I had suffered enough—ha!] What secret(s) did you keep from your parents until you were an adult?
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-13I remember a few years ago, a couple at church said that they don’t clean their house before guests come over. “If we love people enough to have them in our home, they love us enough to not worry about real-life clutter.” I thought it was genius. And in theory I practice it. But mostly it’s a mad dash the 20 minutes to pick up before anyone comes over.
Also, follow bluebonnetbabies. I would let Molly come over anytime without cleaning. Fine, we will just go get a treat somewhere. But for sure check out bluebonnetbabies because she’s hilarious. kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/25013909_1582905781765874_7762935009907834880_n.jpg2017-12-13

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-12Fine! Everyone to your room! And don’t come out when you hear Netflix starting.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-12It’s amazing what my parents have forgotten from our childhood. And every Christmas, when we are all together, they like to point out how our children’s behaviors (and clothing!) would have never been allowed when they were parents. Wait. What? Where’s the ginkgo biloba?? You know what they won’t forget? How I will take the inevitable awkward moments this Christmas and pull out the new jetblue board game “Get Packing!” and how I will WIN! Because when a certificate for a real JetBlue flight is on the line, all bets are off. Was I this competitive as a child? Do my parents even remember?
The game is for sale TODAY, December 12, at 12 pm EST on Amazon (search “Get Packing”). There is a super limited amount of games, and with a voucher for a flight, you know they’ll go fast. Game on, folks! GetPackingJetBluepartnerhttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/25009096_825618360952906_1642412626614943744_n.jpg2017-12-12
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-11My first baby is 16. You guys, it happens so fast. Has anyone mentioned that before? That babies grow fast? And suddenly they want the keys to the car. Oy to the vey.
Thanks to my sweet friends meganfaulknerbrown for this dream cake and angiemonson for these dreamy photos. kidsaretheworst because they grow so fast. Happy Birthday, Maggie.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-09Trying to decide if we get our older kids a bike/bikes this year for Christmas. We tried out the e-bikes at performancebike and now I want one for all of us. More in the stories.
Do you have an e-bike? Do you want one? Did you see that performancebike is giving one away for freeeeeee?
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-09I’ll donate the water bottles, though.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-08It’s just a cycle/phase. They’ll tumble out of it someday.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-08I know you all have the Elf because you love, but also... no thanks.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-07Best feeling ever. That and the elated feeling you get when the waiter is coming with your food. Or a refill before you've finished your drink. Or a fresh batch of chips and salsa. Or when you get a hot basket of bread. And free fries. I think I'm hungry.
Have you sent me your Christmas card yet? Details through the link on my profile. Do it! So fun! Almost as fun as eating and sleeping. Almost.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-07I just saw that this video I made two years ago was making its rounds on FB. Like 65k shares and 3million views. 🙌
Which made me happy... but also was perfect as yesterday I mentioned in my Stories that I had such an upset stomach. Plenty of people suggested that maybe I was pregnant. Ummmm no. And also no. But then again... no no no.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-06And don’t get me started on the iron. That thing has it out for me. My blanket, on the other hand, is so understanding and kind.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-06I don’t know about you, but we are already jam-packed with holiday and family parties. I can already feel all the awkward moments coming. Ha! Did you hear about jetblue’s new board game “Get Packing!” to make this “quality” time more fun?
Check it out: the board game comes with a certificate for a real JetBlue flight that the winner can actually use to get packing.
I just got way more competitive.
So... “Get Packing!” will be for sale December 12 at 12:00 PM EST on Amazon. Check out more at jetblue.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-06It’s barely December. Calm down, Kim.
But also, I have two kids with December birthdays, so I’m always behind anyway.
Do you have someone with a December birthday? 🤚✋ can we commiserate together?
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-06“You know what would be really fun? Not sleeping for a couple decades.” is probably something that I said, once, in my 20s.
Also worth noting: I never had headaches until I became a mother. Coincidence?

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-05You’re welcome, family. I mean, I’m so glad I could be me for you. So blessed.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-04We just celebrated my baby’s birthday and this may have happened a few times. My youngest turned 8. Or 96 months. 😏🤔 So yeah, technically not a baby. But MY baby.
I remember writing about his birth shortly after it happened. I was kinda going through the motions during the entire pregnancy (it was my fourth, after all). When he was born, the nurses placed his new, sticky body on my bare chest and something inside me changed. Something new clicked into place. I’ve never been the same.
I felt like the Grinch whose heart grew three times that day. I never knew how much I needed him and how much I loved this new baby. He completed our family and my heart.
Babies do that to you. Kids do that to you. Garsh, now I’m all sentimental.
Swipe if you want to see the kid who is 8 today. No pressure, y’all. But he’s kinda the best. Well, one of four who are the best. kidsaretheworsthttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/24327354_331821473894028_8207665224002568192_n.jpg2017-12-04

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-12-02I’m currently experiencing holiday brain. It’s especially bad when I’m at the store and didn’t bring a list (because that would be too helpful) and I get distracted by all the shiny decorations and toys.
Ooh look, a GOLD wreath. I think I need that.
