Now Katie knows I get migraines. She knows when I have one I had in my room with a pillow and ice on my head. She knows I don’t like to talk or be bothered. For Kate this is an opportunity to test me.
Test 1: 9AM – The most terrifying words a mother could [...]
that are bad as hell!! I had to yell at Princess Kate this weekend. Sunday night I was sitting at my desk, writing a paper, and I hear:
*THUD* *BA-BOOM* *THUD* *FAAA DUH DA DA DA DA* *SLAM* *THUNK*
This sound was my son getting up, my daughter tear past him, them both running [...]
Saturday evening Studpuppy made Beef Stew for dinner. When I was little, and my mom made it she would put drop biscuits into the stew and call them dumplings, so that is what I call them. Dumplings. Studpuppy surprised me by putting dumplings in the stew (I get sad when he does not. It is [...]
My mom buys me a Page a Day calendar every year for Christmas. This year it is animals with really really stupid jokes. Kate LOVES it. Everyday she is after me to “rip the calendar.” Today’s had an elephant. It turned into something waaaay funnier than what was actually on the calendar.
Kate: Can we [...]
Katie was sick and had a fever this weekend. Saturday night she put herself to bed at like 7pm. We tried waking her (not knowing she had a fever), but it did not work. At this point we discovered her fever, gave her tylenol, and let her sleep. She woke around 3/4am. I was trying [...]
Or La Policia de Los Pantalones, what ever you want want to call it, Kate is a pants freak. Every one must be wearing pants at all times. How is this even my child? If I wake in the morning, and I walk from my room to the bathroom with no pants, she’ll stop me [...]
Katie loves the game Angry Birds. I made the mistake of getting Katie a stuffed Angry Bird that makes noises from the game. http://shop.angrybirds.com/
I, in a brilliant stroke of motherly-ness, bought my child, that moves like a ninja, a toy based on a game where you sling shot birds into structures to get pigs. [...]
You know if this conversation were not bad enough…
Kate: How do babies get in your belly?
Me: They grow there.
Kate: You don’t swallow them?
Kate: Then how do they get there?
Me: They grow there.
Kate: I know. HOW?!
Me: God puts them there.
Towards the end of the day yesterday work requested that I be at our main office in the morning. Our main office is about 30 miles from home. StudPuppy had an obligation to put new brakes on my car, and he also needed to get Kate to and from school. I texted HotPink Valentine and [...]
As you read this remember Katie is 4 going on 16. I wonder if maybe I will be lucky and get these teenaged arguments out of the way while I can still almost outsmart her, sometimes. Maybe when she is 16 we’ll have more mature arguements. (Yeah right!) Mature arguements exist! Honest. They do!!! Do [...]
