Family Funny

We stopped at the grocery store on the way home from music and bought 2 rotisserie chickens. I was talking about how we would have 4 legs, wings, thighs.

From the back seat I hear "How can there be 4 when we only bought 2 chickens?"

"Well, each chicken has 2 of each..."

If this was from a young child, I could understand it. But this was from my 11 yo. We love her. We also love to pick on her.

She says the sweetest things!

As I sit here on the computer looking at running shirts, I see one that I like here. It says "The older I get, the faster I was". My oldest, now 14, says "Mom, you're not that old!" As I'm basking in not being that old, she modifies it "You're not that old for someone who has a 14 yo. Look at (friend's) mom, she's turning 50 this year! Look at (other friend's) mom she's turning 45 and (other friend) is only 13!" Well, it was nice while it lasted. For the record, I'm only 38.

8 yeras ago today I became the mother of a boy!

Life with a boy has never been the same. It is sweet and wonderful and crazy and dirty and everything life should be with a boy in the house.

Almost wordless Wednesday

This is my boy with the football, running for a touchdown!

14 years ago today

God put my first child in my arms. We didn't have a digital camera back then so I can't post birth pictures, but I can show you what she looks like now. :-)

She doesn't like this picture, btw. But it shows who I see, not who she shows to the world.

Disney Characters

So we've been discussing favorite Disney characters lately. Before I forget, I need to write them down.

dh - Grumpy (but I think he's just saying that!)

Oldest dd - Tinkerbell

Middle dd - Cinderella, Snow White, Minnie Mouse and Tigger

ds - Lightning McQueen, Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Pluto (he just kept adding and adding....)

Me - Pooh

I tried getting the conversation to favorite villans, but oldest dd was fixated on Ian from National Treasure. I just don't think of that as a Disney movie even though it was made by Disney so we skipped it.

Things that make you go hmmmm

Our old dog, Tawny, peed in the house last night while she was sleeping. Then this morning she pooped in the house. We have a prescription from the vet from a while ago that should help with the pee problem. It's called Propalin. It's actually phenylpropanolamine. That sounded familiar so I looked it up. According to Wikipedia, it's a decongestant and an appetite supressant and "it is used to control urinary incontinence in dogs." Hmmmm

I certainly hope it does not suppress her appetite. She can't afford to lose more weight. She's been around 50 lbs her entire adult life. I'm sure she's down closer to 40 or 45 now.

Family Funny

This morning ds was complaining that he couldn't start school: "I don't have my check-off sheet."

So dh asked "Do you have you Sulu sheet?"

DS just didn't get it.
