How many?

October 28, 2006

I just found this cool link at cheeseparty’s blog:

And you know what? I’m the only one with my name. This TOTALLY proves how original I am. HA!


WARNING…I needth a thenthidst

October 28, 2006

Today has been the day from hell. My children were creatures from the dark side. My husband is now mad at me. I’ve been cursing my MIL the entire time that I’ve been stripping that godforsaken wallpaper off my damn walls, and now this. I sat down the minute the devil children fell asleep–at almost the exact same time–and started eatting some pop-corn (no points) and reading my book (The Pact–it’s awesome so far). Would you believe a kernel broke my filling??????? Yes. It is now totally out of whack, and I refuse to do anything about it until Monday. My tooth is also bleeding a little, but did you hear me? I am NOT GOING to the dentist until MONDAY! I will not be one of those people who has emergencies on the weekends. No, I will not.
So, liquid diet for me until I can get this fixed.

I need a distraction.

My kids are trying to kill me. Or trying to get me to kill them. I’m not really sure which one it is. They are 2 1/2 years old, and 10 months, and they fight like kids who are much older. They fight like cats and dogs. The younger one wants everything that belongs to her brother, and he must protect all of his things. I get that. What I don’t get is why they have to whine so damn much. Can’t they just fight without bothering me? That would be nice. I’ve already had 3 cups of coffee, and I’m already thinking about another cup. Thank God I’m not into crack.
I’ve decided that they only way I won’t end up on America’s Most Wanted List today is if I blog all day, and finish stripping the wall paper border off of the World’s Ugliest and Smallest Bathroom. Maybe I’ll also try taking them to the store to buy a lamp for the living room. If I get brave. After my 4th cup of coffee, of course.
Later I’ll post pics of the World’s Ugliest and Smallest Bathroom.
God! Can you hear that whining? I swear that nails on a chalkboard is a more soothing sound than the whine.

Where o where are the good toys?

October 26, 2006

I just spent one hour at the holy grail of all toys stores: Toys R Us, and they had nothing! NOTHING!! And God help them if they get mad that I’m writing this because I wouldn’t be writing this if I had found what I needed to get.
Yesterday I searched their website and found 3 very reasonably priced toys. I went to their store–and I had money with me people—and they don’t stock those items on their shelves. Nooooooooo. Because if they did, then they wouldn’t have the space to stock their expensive toys. Now isn’t that convinient.
Well, needless to say, I’ll have to check somewhere else. On a good note, though, they had pjs for sale (7 bucks!) that are perfect for the Christmas card.
This post is so not important, but I was just sayin’.

Love Thursday

October 26, 2006

Love is dancing the night away with your grandmother (Nonna) at your very first wedding.

My son was sound asleep in her carriage. He slept through almost the entire wedding. But not this child. She is a Party Animal.

**love thursday is a wonderful idea from Karen at Chookooloonks.

Love Thursday

My 2 1/2 year old son

Love is watching my son grow and being in awe of all his new changes.
He loves the outdoors. If I let him, he would stay out from the moment he woke up until he went to bed. Rain, snow or shine. He loves all kinds of weather. He smells like grass and dirt and sunshine. He loves trees and is always telling me to “look at the pine cones!” I have to admit, I never noticed them before. He loves the leaves. He loves to rake them and toss bunches into the air and jump in their piles.
He loves to watch the wind move the trees. “Mommy! Look at the trees! The wind is blowing them!” He loves to go to the brook and see if the water is high or low.
Where did this nature boy come from? Certainly he got his love of the outdoors from his father.

Heart Breaker

October 18, 2006

Yesterday my son and I were painting pretty pictures, when out of the blue he says to me, “mommy, remember when I lost you?” and I told him that he didn’t lose me, and I didn’t lose him. I didn’t know what he was talking about. But he persisted. He said, “yes, mommy, I lost you at school yesterday, remember?” Oh my goodness. My heart was in my throat. When he was crying at school on Monday maybe he thought I was actually lost. I wonder what goes on in those precious little minds. He’s such a sweet boy.

This will make sense if you’re 2

I haven’t got any idea what happened. My 2 year old loves school. LOVES IT. He looks foward to going. He likes repeating his teachers names, and his classmates names. Over and over.
Anyway, today started like the other Mondays. He couldn’t wait to go to school. An hour before we had to leave he started crying because I wouldn’t take him right then. Finally it was time to go. We get to his class, and for the first time he says that he doesn’t want me to go, and he started crying and latched on to me. What the hell? This is the kid who loves school, OK? Well, they pry him away from me, and I left. Well, just to the hallway. I spied for about 5 minutes (he couldn’t see me) hoping that they could calm him down. I felt so bad! I wanted to cry. Why was he crying?
Oh well, I left with the baby and we went to Marshalls. We were there for about 15 minutes when my cell rang. It was the director. They could not console him, they tried everything, he won’t stop crying, can you come and get him? I practically flew there. Thank God there weren’t any cops around, or I would have been in trouble.
Now this is the part where you need to be 2 to understand. As I was pulling out of the parking lot he asked, “we’re not gonna play at school anymore?” I said, no. And he said, “why?” all shocked and everything. I thought I might strangle him.

Love is letting them “help” me unload the dishwasher, even though it takes 3 times as long.

Found one for sale, looks like great condition, on Craigs List, not far, for $60! I’m DROOLING! My husband would kill me if I came home with another stroller. I can only dream. I wish one would just show up on my doorstep. Now that’s a dream!
