Just a few quick updates, since I haven’t had time to come in and ramble on about life in a while…

Not that I didn’t want to, and not that I didn’t come in here and actually start typing a few times. The problem was that it was usually in those dreamlike states that happens somewhere between 3am and the time the Climber scales the side of my bed. Apparently my creativity goes to sleep before I do.

 

So anyway…

We went crazy at the after-Halloween sale…

Costumes and accessories between a quarter and a couple of bucks resulted in the kids’ dress-up trunk overflowing with new goodies…and a lot of hilarious photos.

Poor little man was ashamed of Sister's fashion choices for him.

The only real trouble we ran into was when the Climber realized that he was “gasp” wearing a tutu in front of people.

He actually turned bright red and hid his little face in shame.

I wasn’t even aware a 2-year-old could be embarrassed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Diva is having a ball with all her new stuff.

She’s even dressed for a ball.

Look out Madonna!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a rock show.

And the red carpet.

And probably even a questionable strip club…bad momma.

Good thing she's not older..I would have to burn this outfit...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But hey…the dress-up trunk is kick-ass…

He has more to choose from than just the tutu.

And even has a few boy-clothes now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Climber has added a few new words and phrases to his vocabulary…

  • “Bye-Bye” (must apparently be yelled for optimal effectiveness)
  • “Nigh-Nigh” (also must be yelled)
  • “Drink”
  • “No”
  • A variation of “Kitty”
  • “Damn” (bad momma)
  • “Awwww Man!” (every time something goes bump)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Diva is becoming more and more of a diva. She got pushed down at school the other day…hit something sharpish (a stick, we think), and got a small owie on her tummy. Nothing some Neo-Goop and a Pixar Band-Aid can’t fix, but the story was…

“Momma!! I got pushed today…PUSHED DOWN!! It was bad. And my friend had to rescue me…she SAVED ME! Because…because…I have a HOLE IN ME!!! A HOLE! You wanna see it?”

Her friend in this story is a fellow mom who works at the school, is an EMT, is one of the sweetest moms I know, and my daughter LOVES her. I have got to remember to send that girl something baked for Christmas.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of Christmas…is it wrong that it’s mid-November and I’m already annoyed by the already constant attacks of cheery carols and Santa movies and cinnamon EVERYTHING?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

True story…the powers-that-be at the Wal-Mart we cannot live without has apparently decided that hiding automatic air-freshener puffers in the shelves is a bang-up idea. These same idiots stocked them all with Old-Lady-Cinnamon-Baked-Crap scent.

Even better? They chose the motion-sensing scent-puffers.

So, you’re walking along the aisles, minding your own business, and every fifteen feet or so you get sprayed in the face with a nose-clogging, headache inducing fog of Cinnamon-Apple flavored chemical warfare.

Twenty minutes in there and I had a migraine, the Guru’s mood had plummeted into Just-Woken-Grizzly mode, and we’d forgotten half of what we went in there for.

Did I mention that I am allergic to anything made by Air-Wick?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On a better note, later that night the Guru and I (having cleared the headaches in the cold West Texas wind) indulged in a movie minus the munchkins.

No kids, no curfew, adults-only DATE NIGHT…what did we go see?

Puss in Boots, of course! In 3-D.

BTW…it is an awesome movie…if you get a chance to go watch it, GO!

  1. I actually kind of want to see Puss ‘n Boots. I’ve often said he’s the only reason I like Shrek 2. I’ve heard enough positive things it might be worth going…

    Something happened the day after Halloween and I never made it to the store to get the discounts. I think that was “clean-out-and-reorganize-the-kitchen-cupboards” day.

    I’m glad your son finally has option other than a tutu. My son will wear whatever his sister covets….

    I got a lot of great info from this post:

    I love Puss in Boots (and Antonio) but I’ve been afraid to see it. I couldn’t handle it if it was too bad. Thanks for the review.

    Thanks for the Walmart update too. I knew there was a reason I avoided that place.

    I’m impressed that “NO” doesn’t need to be yelled for optimum effectiveness. I’m trying to get my nine-year-old out of that habit 😉

    I agree with the Christmas stuff. We are officially allowed to start the Christmas season in our home the day after Thanksgiving, and we’re usually really excited about it, but I couldn’t even listen to Christmas music today. I was already sick of it (and before Thanksgiving, I turn it off when it’s on the radio).

    What do you think about Black Friday starting on Thanksgiving?

    • Sparky says:

      Lol…I am NOT a fan of Black Friday starting on ANY day!! All it does is bring out the most rabid of shoppers to bite and pull hair over something that’s been marked up a week ago so that it can be marked down again for one special day. Hey, it’s all cheaper on eBay! 😉

      And “NO” isn’t yelled yet…but it is punctuated by running away to avoid whatever he’s refusing.
