Busy Day

Yohboh had to drive kidlet all over today for her TWO birthday parties she had to attend.

Me and Chuy had to hang out because her nose was runny but I think it is due to teething.  But I never want to be the asshole who brings the sick kid to the party.

Little Girls at Play

Burr in my bed.

Lola has been coming in from being outside covered in burrs.  So after she comes in, there is some additional time that I take to remove them.  Sometimes, there are as few as three and as many as sixteen.

It has been cold lately so Lola has taken to climbing into our bed and undoing the covers to make herself a little nest.  I found her like that yesterday and she jumped off the bed and I found a burr in my bed.

Finding something foreign in my bed makes me unhappy.  I had to remake the bed to make sure that I did not have any more of the burrs in my bed.

Lola took this as a personal affront and has been looking me sullenly ever since.

Sisters in Unity

So Kidlet needed a bath and Chuy likes to bathe with her.

It is FREEZING right now so I put the water warmer than it normally is.

Kidlet gets in the water and Chuy walks to the bathroom.  Kidlet complains that the water is too hot.  I undress the baby and put her in the water.  The look on Chuy's face is miffed.

Kidlet says, "I don't like it either."

This made me so happy.  Even if their common enemy was me.

My family snuggled up

CIO

Last night, Chuy cried for 40 minutes.

Tonight, 20.

Daddy puts her down at nine and puts her in bed with me to nurse at 6 AM.

I like sleeping with my husband.  Without a little squashy baby.

Long Day

011

Chuy likes curry chicken.

But in the last few days she has puked it out.

And pooped it out.

In our bed.

And she has figured out how to take off her diaper.  So she pooped into her pants sans diaper.

But she did not take her pants off.

So three pillows got thrown away.

Anyone who poops in my bed is no longer welcome in my bed.  Those are words to live by.

004

Kidlet just told Chuy that she is concentrating.

I love this kid.

Go Hug Your Kid

So all the news is about some terrible shit that went down.  Terrible awful shit that made me weep.  Because I have children in a world where this shit exists all too fucking often.


To make me feel better, here is Chuy walking a bit.  She has been doing this for a while, but I finally caught it.


And here is my oldest child with an outfit of her own creation.  She is a stylish girl.

Long Day

Grumpy baby and the Not Listening five year old makes for a long day.

EXTRACTION

So my sister sent me a comedome extractor.

It hurts!

It is painful, addicting and painful.

There is also a video where the good doctor sets pimples on fire:


Don't click on it.

DO NOT.

Unless you liked that previous video I posted.

Damn Dangerous Glue Sticks

Kidlet was doing homework yesterday.  It involved a glue stick.  My eldest daughter loses many things: shoes, socks, crayons, and glue sticks.  I had to open a new one since she had lost the one I had given her last week.

Somehow, she got her lip caught in her glue stick. She was screaming and crying and trying to outrun the pain in her mouth.  I had to chase her for a good five minutes before I take the glue stick off her bottom lip and a layer of her lip skin as well.

Then she bled for a good twenty minutes.

And she is mad at her glue stick.

Angry squirrels

So I am taking a walk with Chuy.  And this older fellow is jogging by.  I say good morning like any person would.

He told me to walk on the other side because it is safer.  No good morning, no hello.

I nodded, thanked him and when he walked by I rolled my eyes.

I saw no moving cars during my walk.

Angry squirrels, however, I see daily.
