My Son's Art

I have long enjoyed art, and am very proud that my son has showed such an interest at 3! These are some of his creations from this year.

There are people making soda pop bottle bombs and leaving them in suburban yards. These are serious and kill take off fingers, blind you, and cause severe burns (both from the acid and the boiling liquid)

This is a REAL threat and would most likely be picked up by kids or activated by your dog!! That is just crazy!

Once the bottle is moved they usually detonate within 30 seconds.

The police investigating this case urge you scan your yards before letting your pets or kids out and to phone the police or 911 if you see a pop bottle with liquid in it, esp if it is partially swollen or melted. That is what they are here for!

Mini Me

My daughter vacuuming in her dress. She looked like a grown up Mommy, not to mention the adorable frustration on her face!

Violence in Kids

Violence is hard wired in our nature. If you don't believe that watch your kids! They are sweet as sugar one minute and bashing the life out of their toy the next. My daughter is one and is following her brother around bashing her read a long book on the ground with a loud resounding "Ugh"

I have cavemen! Really it feels like training neanderthals!

Zoo Trips

They lie to us! Those well meaning parents and friends that tell us how much fun they had taking their kids to the Zoo! It is not fun carting them around miles of other kids to see sleeping animals and empty cages. It is not fun to pay 50C for handfuls of dog food so they can risk life and limb dangling over rotting railings to throw it away at giant fish and noisy geese and ducks.

It is, however, a time honored tradition. They do seem to enjoy it for a little while. And it's great for your calves! So we do it, if only to brag to others that we survived the Zoo trip.

A Laugh A Minute

Kids are always doing something to make us smile, blush, or run for cover...

Recently my son has started calling me Mommy Gail (My Husband's favorite name for me, and my middle name as well) or just repeating Mommy over and over and laughing at how many times I can say "What?" stringed together. It always cracks a smile on my lips no matter how stressed or upset I get.

What are you funniest stories?

Kid's Only

Waking Up

Nothing beats getting a small little hand patting your face and saying as lightly as possible, "Mommy wake up". Unless, of course, it's way before your ready to be awake. But that little hand is persistent and the voice angelic.

So you stretch, yawn, and rub your eyes awake and curse the storm that had you tossing most of the night away. Evidently it didn't affect your little man's sleeping patterns since he is bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning.

Some times it's more difficult to see the positive to start your day, and you just want to cover your head and go back to sleep. But motherhood prevents that little luxury we always took for granted. There is no calling in, sleeping in or even giving in to exhaustion when those little eyes are waiting for yours to open.

The most we can hope for is a rest period later.

Potty Training

Today was not my finest of days. I woke up late with a headache and my two diapers for my son. My son who is 3 and should really be free of these parental torture devices, but chooses not to go potty because his one year old sister does the deed while playing why shouldn't he?

SO imagine my state of mind when a charming little stink bomb scampers past me grinning and saying "I pooped Mommy" Well I sucked it up like mommies do and peeled of the pants to find he had indeed pooped, and outsmarted the Huggies too!

While gagging and praying that the wipes were not empty, I proceeded to change that nasty back end while he was free to relax and contemplate how much better this was than sitting on a cold commode all alone.

I'm starting to believe he just needs company.


I'm in a Bad Mood
The kids are driving me Nuts
I always Hate that
