Bubbles EVERY where!

I thought she was sitting in the family room with her brother while I cooked dinner. Well I thought wrong. Way wrong. Dan is out of town tonight and I am scrambling around to get dinner cooked, baths, PJs on etc all at the same time. Well Bella had other plans.

She ran upstairs while I was getting dinner ready. While I was standing over the sink rinsing corn on the cob, I heard a noise like someone was in the bathroom upstairs–I know, this isn’t sound good huh? I go up there to find my almost 2 year old naked, standing in the shower, covering her body from head to toe and I mean HEAD TO TOE with shampoo.

Luckily she was in the shower so the mess was contained to there and it made rinsing her easy. Well almost easy. Miss Bella really got a lot of soap in her private area and I literally had to aim the shower head up between her legs to get all the shampoo rinsed out. She first looked at me like “what the hell are you doing?” and then she started laughing and yelling “bubbles”! And yes…there were a lot of bubbles!

Who could you be friends with?

If you could pick only one celebrity or celebrity couple to be friends with, would you choose?

For me, it’s a no brainer! Definitely Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. I think we would get along famously. Dean and my husband are so much a like, it’s scary and Tori and I have a lot in common as well. Sure I didn’t grow up in a huge mansion, or have a nanny for my kids, but…

  • She enjoys throwing parties…I enjoy planning them
  • She has written a best seller…I plan on writing a best seller some day
  • She’s funny…so am I
  • She’s gets really huge when pregnant…I was a blimp

See! It’s a match made in Heaven!

Wordless Wednesday – 9/10/08

Woo Hoo!!!!

I just got the BEST phone call ever! My son is starting preschool this year and it is a co-op preschool. For those of you that don’t know what that is, basically the tuition is lower for the moms who agree to help out in the room.

Anyhow, I forgot (not setting a good first impression lol) to send in the job form. Tomorrow is the orientation, so I figured I would take it tomorrow and take whatever crappy job was left. Apparently I wasn’t the only mom who forgot to mail it in so the lady in charge had to make phone calls to distribute jobs. She started going through the jobs available and let me tell you, I was getting a little nervous. Things like, grounds keeper (shovel snow and put out salt…no thanks), housekeeper (no thanks again), classroom liason (well maybe), and are you ready for this…PARTY MOM!

I couldn’t believe Party Mom was still available. Of course I chose that. That job is right up my alley! I love to plan parties and the best news…as Party Mom, I have to be at every preschool party!! Some of you may be thinking “sugar, 4 year olds, screaming…”, and yes I thought all those things too, but…this is my son’s first preschool experience and I can’t wait to get pictures and watch him have fun!!!

I’m so geeked!

Mama Bear came out in full FORCE

My sister in-law (who is the absolute best!!) watched my kids this morning for me so I could rest. I had been sick all week and with my husband out of town…I wasn’t getting much sleep. Anyway, I called her, told her I was feeling much better and would get the kids. She told me to meet her at McDonald’s. So I did.

Of course I sat and let my kids run through the germ infested play area. Why is it that the brattiest of kids ALWAYS have to be attracted to my kid? I mean seriously does Zack have a brat magnet or something? To make it worse, this kid was like 8 years old. Go ride your bike or do something else. You can’t tell me playing at McDonald’s with a bunch of toddlers is fun.

So first off, the kid walks in and starts yelling at my son. That didn’t fly with this mom. I am the only one that gets to yell at my kid (haha just kidding…well sort of)! I didn’t say anything just yet…just watched. It got worse. It went from yelling to pretend kicking and hitting. Now my kid is no angel. But he’s four. If he sees someone older doing those things, of course he is going to do the same. However, being four, he gets out of hand MUCH faster. So I looked at the other kids mom thinking if I just stared at her a minute, she would stop yapping on her cell and pay attention to her kid. Nope. So I did.

I walked up the play area and said to the kid (and to mine) to stop pretend hitting and kicking, that someone was going to get hurt. Well that got her up off her swivel chair. “Excuse me, do you have a problem with my son?”…this is what the woman barked at me. Um…well now that you mention it…but rather than be rude, I simply told her that her son is much older than mine and I didn’t think he realized that the pretend kicking and hitting with a four year old would end up getting someone hurt since I know my son would probably get carried away too quickly. She didn’t say anything and just sat back down, on her swivel chair, and began yapping again.

Well wouldn’t you know. That pretend hitting and kicking turned to a game of chase. I still kept an eye on it. Hey I didn’t want to be that kind of mom that squashed all the fun! But just watching was going against my better judgement, and I wish I would have stopped it because then the game of chase turned into a game of chase WITH pretend hitting and kicking. Only the pretend kicking turned into an actual kick to my sons stomach. I think it was probably partially an accident, but still. Of course Miss Yapper over there said nothing to her son for kicking mine. So again, I stood up and said something.

I told this kid to please stop the hitting and kicking and showed him how he had hurt my son. Miss Yapper stood up and told me to not discipline her son again. Thats when the Mama Bear in me came out and I responded with “well if you did your job as a parent instead of bring your kid here without any rules or conversation on how to behave with other kids around, then I wouldn’t have to do your job”. And with that, I took my kids and we went home.

Maybe I was out of line. But come on. Watch your darn kid.
