Blah blah blah, Keely is God, blah blah blah blah. Go see her and find out for yourself.
Last week Jamie made pirogis. Being the great helper that he is, Graham was underfoot the entire time peering over the stove to see what we were making. After much anticipation, he politely requested (demanded) that he have some “boobies”. His pronunciation could use some work and after one bite, he spit it out and declared his dislike for them. Apparently he’s not a boob man.
Jamie’s grandparents are pushing ninety and are still spry and hilarious. His grandpa likes to email jokes to me but it sometimes creeps me out.
I have witnessed several people chucking cigarette butts and trash out of their rides lately. I wonder who they think is responsible for cleaning up their shit? On a related note, my one year old likes to pick up cigarette butts and eat them if I don’t catch her in time. Don’t be surprised if you hear about me throwing shit back into someone’s car and getting shot in the process.
We took a family trip to the aquarium on Sunday. Actually, we just went a mile up the road to Petco but the kids didn’t know the difference. They got to see Nemo and we killed half an hour so everyone was happy.
My parents bought us a bike trailer for Xmas. It only has one lap belt for both kids so we have to pull it extra tight in order to secure them. This leads to screeching, hitting and kicking before we even get out of the driveway.We haven’t actually experienced any joy from the fucking thing but we keep trying.
Graham is terrified of Map from Dora the Explorer. He loves Dora books but we tried showing him the cartoon and he FREAKED when map came on the screen. The other day Jamie let me sleep in but Graham was so hysterical over map that I hopped up out of bed and sprinted to the living room to see if he was ok. It’s sad, really. How is he going to find his way through life without a map?
Lately I’ve noticed traits about myself that really drive home the point that I’m old. Like the fact that I mowed my lawn and it looked extra nice or that it rained two days in a row so my grass got watered. The fact that Memorial Day is coming up and Pepsi is going to be on sale… lame things like that. What happened to me?
When I picked up Graham from school last Friday, all ten two year olds were jumping up and down shouting “DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, DIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!”. Should I be concerned?
It’s been three days since my last French fry. I know this is an ongoing failure in my life but every time I climb back on the wagon I get another chip. I hope they’re Pringles.
