I thought I had figured out a really cool way to share my photos without having to painfully load them onto Blogger. BUT it's not working. I betcha my husband can figure it out.
Does anyone remember when it became really cool abbreviate words. Ya know abbreve? No? Is it still cool? I don't really know what's cool anymore. Fo REALZ! I don't. This bothers me a little. I used to be pretty "with it". This whole world of uncool momdom is fairly new territory for me here. Also, does it make me seem like I'm trying to hard to still be cool when I wear things like Roxy sweaters or Sketchers? Maybe I should start getting a little classier like my friend Amanda and start shopping with her at J Crew and Banana Republic. Or maybe I should just stop brushing my hair and wear sweats everywhere. (No offense if you are wearing sweats right now or if you haven't brushed your hair yet today. In fact I'm sporting a SERIOUS greasy, hat head myself. It's hot.) I dunno, I'm just trying to decide when it's time to retire the high school/college fashion sense and adopt a new sense of taste. Do any of you watch "What Not to Wear" on TLC? You never see them out buying hoodies and Sketchers. Any thoughts?
On a completely different note, today was a ROUGH day. I learned a few things today. Such as:
*Despite the progress Megan has made in maturity and listening and NOT screaming, she still has days in which she will throw fits and scream for pretty much and entire day. Megan if you are reading this it means that you are still around and I loved you SO MUCH that I chose not to put you up for adoption. Now go give your mother a hug. NOW!
*Children in elementary school can be cruel and violent. So far Ben has been spared any torture but today I witnessed four other boys kicking and jumping on another helpless little boy. I was thisclose the just taking Ben back home and locking him in his room for the remainer of his childhood. Cuz that would be better right?
*Olivia can still be mistaken for a boy in the grocery store wearing a pink striped jacket with flowers on it. It does make me feel a little better that she thought she was the cutest little boy she'd ever seen. She actually would make a pretty cute little boy. BUT SHE'S NOT!!!
*A person cannot leave a container of applesauce within reach of a one year old in the car...even if it's closed. Because if one does do this one would be cleaning carseat/clothing/car/child for a long time afterwards.
*Olivia really likes watching Jerry Springer. (note: I DO NOT watch this show. I just happened to be on the TV as i was doing dishes and Olivia was mesmerised. Also, that is the stupidest show I've EVER SEEN!)
*Some children with the name of Olivia can climb OVER their baby gate. OVER. the baby gate. over it. Climbing over to the other side of it. Does anyone else have children under one that do this?
* IF a person were to leave a cloth laying around that you...say...wiped the toilet with. If you didn't immediately put it in the wash the baby will find it and start to suck on it's filthy juices.
Enough lessons for today.
Maybe tomorrow I'll have nice photos for you.
