The Question of the Day

Mster: Mom, when is Lster taking a nap?
Me: If you ask me one more time when Lster is taking a nap you will not get to watch your show when he goes down. Do you understand?
Mster: yes...Mom, how long is Lster going to be awake for?

Having a bad day!!!

You know your day may not turn out how you had hoped when your 16 month old wakes up at 4:30 and never really goes back to sleep. You realize your children are filthy and instead of putting clothes on them they really should take a bath and its only 6:15AM. Your daughter decides to wait for the water to "get deep" while your son splashes like a madman in 1/4 inch water. Your daughter must have some sixth sense cause your son proceeds to dirty the water and you have to clean it up, clean the tub, and refill the water now with 2 naked and cold children at 6:20AM.

What the Heck?

So we've doing TV on DVD lately and so put in Disc 6 of Season 3 Veronica Mars only to find it was "extras" crap!!! HELLO!!!! You didn't finish the story. You didn't end the season. I knew this was the last season but I didn't realize they didn't even finish it.

CRAPPY. VERY CRAPPY.

I blame all the people who got me hooked on the show. You know who you are.

How to use Google Reader

More about Google Reader.

It allows you to check all the webpages that you routinely check for updates in one conveniant location.

There are a lot of different places to do this but if you already use gmail this is your easiest choice.

To set it up and use:

At the top of your gmail screen - select "more", then "reader". (Google frequently changes the layout of their main page so Reader may already be a choice in the top panel.

Once at the Reader page type in the urls of webpages you want to know when they update. This will "subscribe" you to their page. It does not necessarily need to be a blog.

After you have added your pages, check as often as you like in one location to see if all your favorite websites have added any updates.

Google Reader

I looked myself up and discovered that only 2 people subscribe to my blog. I know there are more than 2 people that read my blog. People, you NEED to use Google Reader. Most of you use gmail so its one click more. Just do it. Feeds free up so much more of your time and I know how busy some of you are so like I've already mentioned. Just do it!

Questions, Questions, Questions!

Mster has this (somewhat annoying) habit of asking questions without thinking first or looking first.

Mster: Mom, is my MacNCheeze done - when I'm at the stove dumping in macaroni.

So yesterday in my fit of hating the world I told her she wasn't allowed to ask me any questions she already knew the answer too. If she could look and find the answer or think and come up with the answer she couldn't ask it. Anything to stop the insessant question asking.

Here's what immediately happened.

Mster: Mom, Can I ask a question I don't have the answer to?
Me: Okay
Mster: How long will it take for Lster to bite through all the cups in the house?

Immediately after that question...

Mster: Mom, Can I ask a another question I don't have the answer to?
Me: I guess
Mster: How long until I can use knives.

So that backfired...

Where's Daddy

The other day I told the kids it was time to wake up Cster. Lster immediatley ran to the garage door and started yelling like a madman and punding with his little fists.

Yesterday!

Yesterday I did not like my kids. I had a bad headache and they whined, cried, and screamed and fought all day long.

Today I like my kids. Today I can remember all the great things that they do and are that make me so happy to be their mom.

Today I love that Mster looks out for her younger brother and SCREAMS as loud as she can to tell me that he's put something in his mouth.

Today I loved that the kids took turns with their books instead of YELLING to have their book read with Lster slamming Mster's book shut everytime we tried to read it.

Today I love that my kids were happy to eat whatever I put in front of them instead of insisting that I find the hidden Valentine's treats. Lster has a sixth sense as to where all things sweet are hidden.

Today I love that Lster can show me his belly button, clap his hands, put his hands up in the air when you ask him how big he is, give kisses, give hugs, smile, laugh, sign, play games, get books, come to me when I call, get his own diapers and wipes, find everybody's shoes when we are going somewhere, yell at the garage door whenever we say the name "Daddy" and even say a few words (albeit it is just the first syllable)

Today I love that Mster is learning how to colour within the lines, write her numbers, sing songs she makes up, read stories to Lster (memorized stories), play pretend, give tight hugs, do her "homework".

Today I love that Mster is so inquisitive and asks questions about everything.

Yesterday was a different story.

Another statement not used by me or Cster

Me: Can you draw me a dog?
Mster: Have I ever steered you wrong?

Lster loves shoes

Lster has a shoe fetish. He wants to wear any shoe/boot/dress up princess heels/etc that's his, mine or Mster.

You can see him most days parading around the room in his shoes or else walking towards me with shoes in hand asking for me to put them on.

Last post update

I didn't realize the picture came out so small so the link to see the full size is here.

I suggest you check it out to truly appreciate our conversation.

Mster's Political Discussion




Mster saw this picture while I was on the computer.


Mster: What's going on?

Me: Looks like that lady's getting bit in the butt.

Mster: Well...how will it stop?

Me: Only if the dog stops biting.
