Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
Excuse me for a second while I climb out from under the leaves....
Um, yeah, we have just a few. The stupid leaves refuse to blow into the neighbors' lawns. And, the neighbors refuse to mow, mulch, or rake even the tiniest part of our lawn. Nope. They draw a perfectly straight line and turn up their noses at our leaf-infested lawn. Well, I might be exaggerating a little. Not about the straight line, but maybe about turning up their noses.
Ready for some randomness before I pick up the boys from school and excitedly point them toward the rakes?!
~ This weekend I overheard Nurse Boy mumble something about the starving children in Africa and, "Just stop complaining, eat your lunch, and be quiet!" I could not contain my giggles. When did we officially become our parents?!
~Poor Nurse Boy also lost his cool when Dimples started to whine about the endless raking that was to be done this weekend. Nurse Boy's response? "So, you don't want to rake? You just want ME to do ALL of the work for you?" Dimples quietly picked up the rake and got busy.
~Nurse Boy has turned into his parents, no doubt.
~Is it wrong that I often giggle when Nurse Boy loses his cool? Truth be told, he almost never loses his cool. We won't discuss my behavior. Yeah, I am always as cool as a cucumber... in hot and spicy salsa. It just makes me feel better when he loses his cool every now and again.
~I found a $25 gift card to TGI Fridays in the bottom of a toy basket.
~It is almost enough motivation to start cleaning and organizing around here.
~I did say ALMOST.
~Dusting... may I ask, WHAT IS THE POINT?! Yet, I still do it faithfully every single week.
~Is it possible to take a good picture of three kids in hopes of a fantastic Christmas card photo? Without yelling at them? Without taking over 100 photos?
~I am here to tell you that it is not possible. 100 photos later, I have 3 big, fat "maybes."
~I guess I should have gone the professional photo route after all.
~Was it worth my sanity to save a couple of bucks?!
~But, I do LOVE picnik.com! Maybe I can make them LOOK professional and photo shop a smile or two in...
~Wonder if I can also erase the tears? Yeah, I should get an award for making my kids cry while trying to take a jolly, happy, heart-warming Christmas photo.
~Why, YES, I am still available to come snap some heart-warming photos of your clan!
I know, I know. I won't hold my breath!
