You Belong in 1984

Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

Where are my boobies??

So I just love the age of my kids right now... Kole is almost 5 and Kassie is 3 1/2. The funniest, oddest, most embarrassing things come out of their mouths. Every morning I give the kids breakfast, set their clothes on the couch, instruct them to finish breakfast and then get dressed... and off I go to get ready myself. Most days this runs right on schedule. But the little things that happen in between are so funny. Today I did the normal and then jumped in the shower. I should say that I think this has never happened because I usually shower at night... but decided to shower this morning. So I was in my bedroom getting dressed and Kole came in and asked if he could get dressed in the bathroom (with the door shut). I said sure since I had a few minutes before I needed to get in there. Then Kassie goes running past my door saying "I haves to go potty, I haves to go potty!!" so he looks at me and says "Mommy can I get dressed in your room then?" And of course with ought thinking I reply "Yea, Sure." And proceed to finish getting dressed. Kole climbs up on the bed to get dressed and I begin putting on my bra... then this conversation took place...

Kole: (looks down at his chest, looks at mine, then back to his) "Mommy when are my boobies going to get bigger like yours?
Me: Um hunny, you are a boy so yours don't get bigger.
Kole: But how are daddies?
Me: Daddies are like yours. They stay like that. Only girls boobies get bigger.
Kole: (looking at my chest again) But I want bigger boobies!
Me: Well I'm sorry hun.. you are a boy.. but you will be JUST LIKE DADDY!!
Kole: (looking pensive) Then are sissys going to get bigger, cause shes a girl?
Me: Um yes.. eventually. But not till shes older.
Kole: THATS SO COOL!! (starts screaming for kassie)
Me: Kole, What are you doing? Let your sister eat!
Kole: I haves to tell her mom!!
**Now enter Kassie**
Kassie: What Kole?
Kole: Kassie guess what? Its sooo COOL! Your boobies are going to get bigger like mommies!!

Then both went running off to watch TV.. completely unaware of me standing stunned in the corner!!

What would you never say

So I was over visiting Lainey's blog and it was about how she used the "because I said so" line on her son. My line I have SWORN I would never say is "Do you want me to give you something to cry about!" My dad used that line all the time growing up. And you know... it just ERKS me! yes erks.. lol... I mean we were already crying! It doesn't mater if you don't think that it is a good reason to cry, but we are.

Anyway It got me thinking about my current situation with my daughter. Kole is almost 5 and she is 3 1/2. Lately my son has been bursting into tears to get what he wants something. And it was driving me CRAZY!! So one day when I was talking to my BFF Guin (also the babysitter) if he was doing that at her house. She looked perplexed and said no. Odd I thought... Then one day about a week later she said he did it today.. started the "baby routine" such as i call it .... And she asked him why he would do that? And do you know his answer?? "Because sissy does it and mommy talks to her" Ouch.. yea. That opened up my eyes to what I'm letting my baby get away with that I never would have let him. So I'm really cracking down on this with her.. so lets just say Tylenol has been my best friend the past week cause when she realizes the crying is not working it just gets louder. Oye vay.

You know I remember a time though when I realized I was doing the same thing with Kole.. And now did it with Kassie.. but for different reasons... with Kole I had a very hard time disciplining him at points because he was my miracle baby. I had lost a baby before him, went through a fertility center, would have lost him if I hadn't known as early and gone on progesterone.... He was the baby I never thought would be here. So how do you discipline something so precious... Well I got it together. I think with Kassie it is the fact of the past year... its been hell on wheels, ups and downs... more emotional downs than ups, and frankly a struggle daily. But I finally feel like I may be getting to an even point.... so here we go again.. redoing what I have done wrong and teaching her the rights and wrongs. Let me warn you.. its much easier I'm sure to do it right in the first place.. but i doubt anyone has ever gotten child rearing right the first time... right!

Astrology... Do you believe??

So I'm a Scorpio... and my horoscopes are usually dead on. In the freaky is someone stalking me sort of way. Now don't worry.. I'm not one of those must read what the stars say before i can leave my house in the morning... but occasionally I do pick it up to look. And when i do if its an old one, it usually is spot on... and if its for current of future.. well that can either scare the shit out of me or give me something to look forward to. So in a boredom buster today i logged onto The site for Lifetime TV... yes thats right I'm a sucker for their movies. So the site has lots of cool, funny things to read, look at or do. One of which was an astrology section. And being that I had not looked in a while I decided to click.

Now the financial section... hah.. that was totally a page out of my checkbook.. and trust me right now that is NOT a good thing.. so I'm not going to talk about that. then there was a love/romance section. Just for poops and giggles I'm not going to tell you what that said either... Why you ask?? Because I'm thinking along the same line it says and i don't want to jinx anything. So yes.. it was very good. Then there was a 2008 at a glance section. This is the one that got me. The couple sections on times already past this year were right on. Then there was allot about whats to come, times to look forward to, and times to look out for. Then there was the last section. One or two sentences........ and wow.. here they are:

2008 may not have the up-and-down drama of recent years,
but after all the aggravation you've been through, it's doubtful you'll miss it.

OH MY GOD... if any of you are faithful readers of mine.. yes okay when i have time to post.... I pooped my pants! Okay well not literally cause eww that would be really really disgusting! Anyway.. the past 1 1/2 to 2 years... yea not highlights of mine. Lots of crap and lots of bad crap. So I was like.. omg.. thank god!! A light... i see a little light!!

Now call me corny if you will... but if you are a person who happens to have your horoscope be more often right than wrong... thats a pretty good year overview right!!

The Punishment

So I decided after the post last night that I had to think fast.. reallly fast. I figure a 3 and 4 year old are much like a puppy... If you don't punish right away they don't know what they are getting in trouble for. So last night we did most of their night time routine.. climbed into bed.. and talked about it. They knew what they did was wrong. So they lost their night time song. and then today when we got home they had to call and apologize to Bah (their grandma) for being bad while she was here. She was absolutely horrified that i did that. But I figure that if I can say if mommy was here would have acted that way? and the answer is No. and then I ask then why did you? and the response is i don't know or because... they knew that what they did was wrong. And if they knew what they did was wrong then they needed to understand that that is unacceptable! How else will they ever learn that its not okay to be that way.. right? I said that I know when I was a child I NEVER would have been able to get away with that... I would have had a punishment too. So the question i say is this... When did society get to the point that its acceptable for kids to act that way? It wasn't when I was a kid... and further more.. At what point do you think your grandkids shouldn't be punished?? lol.. must just be when you become a grandma! But I stand by my decision. They needed to take the consequence for their action.
