Mom, the Tyrant

We don't always see eye to eye but this morning Kster and I have been getting along well. Which is why I was a little surprised when he informed me that he did not want me to go to Grandma's house for Christmas because he wanted to have fun.

News flash buddy. Grandma's not going o let you go commando either.

A commentary on my parenting?

Yesterday, being Thursday, meant I got to go through my children's Thursday folders. They are full of important notices from school, past schoolwork, and other school related pages. To be honest, its usually pretty dull. But, not yesterday!

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of finding this treasure in my sons folder.

When I asked him to tell me about it he told me that it was a picture of him, throwing zombies off a mountain.  

And, this gem was found in my daughters folder. Last Friday her class dissected an eyeball. Apparently, they were also supposed to do a little write up of their experience. 

I swear that I never told her any of my squeamishness before the dissection. This is all her.

Homemade Ornaments

We made ornaments!

I took the recipe from this site. Its only, cornstarch, baking soda and water.

I think it was a success!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

How are you feeling today?

Kster drew a picture. Can you see the smile and frown?

Ignore the drool...if you can

Here is the happiest baby on the planet. I think her only competition might be the quadruplets that got caught on video laughing at their dad but she is seriously happy a lot.

And look! She's sitting. All.by.herself. And of course, she's happy about it. What the camera doesn't catch is the fact that moments before she was eagerly trying to get the toy in front of her. I called out her name to take a picture. She looked up at me, lifted herself up with some amazing abs, smiled, and then when I put the camera down went right back to work on getting that toy.
