Isn't she lovely?


Sick Chuy eats with utensils

Chuy is teething.  Her molars are coming in.  She is feverish and screamy.  More so that usual.

Conversation between adults

Minjenah: We should eat dinner now.

Yohboh:  I am not really hungry, I ate lunch really late.

Minjenah (disappointed): Okay.

Yohboh:  Where are the kids?

Minjenah: They are in the bath.

Yohboh : What are they doing there?

Minjenah: I put them in there.  I thought it would be nice to have dinner as just two adults, you fuckwit.



We put the tomatoes in the ground!

Sleeping Kidlet


Kidlet complained of a headache.  This means either, she is sleepy or she is thirsty.  For this evening, it was both.

Wednesday, April 17, 2013



Yohboh worked from home today so I could do an all day survey.  Chuy got so mad at me that when I came home she bit herself.  THAT SHOWED ME!

Kidlet missed me as well.

Lola Concern

Lola yelped in her sleep last night.

Lola yelped in pain when I petted her this morning.

After dinner, yohboh and I tried to examine her and she was in so much pain, she evacuated her bowels (doesn't that sound better than shit herself?).

I know that Lola is the fifth man on the the Smitty family totem pole but that does not mean that she is not loved.   She is my second dog and she makes me feel safe because she is a fierce protector of her pack.

And she loves my babies.


Chuy: I ate my dinner.  So I get Jello.  You don't get none.  You did not eat all your green things.

Yohboh and I had a date night.

It involved the symphony, the Varsity and some beer.

Outside Girls


Chuy was playing with the garden hose.  She squirted so much water in her nose it came out her mouth.  I have no pictures of this.  I am disappointed in myself.

Kidlet is getting too big for her big wheel.

Busy Day

I have no idea what I do all day, but I am very tired at the end of it.


Getting Older

Getting older means things happen to your person.


1) I need bifocals.

2) My knees make noise in their everyday existence.  This makes me realize that I can never be a super spy because my knees would creak like old stairs.

3)  I forget the third one, which is probably an indicator of my old age.

Kidlet, concentrating


18 months

Chuy is 18 months old


Here is kidlet at 18 months and one day

Car Pee

The past few mornings, I have awoken to find a pair of cats on top of our cars.

Yohboh hates this because it leaves paw prints and scratches on the cars.  I am nonplussed about it.  I dislike cats but really, how do you prevent them from getting on top of your car?

Until yesterday.

I got in my car and smelled the strong odor of pee.  Thinking it was Chuy, we went back inside to change her diaper.  But the pee smell was still in my car.  And it was a strong animal scent that made me roll down all the windows while we waited for kidlet from school.

So in my paranoid brain, I think that a cat somehow peed in my vents and made that smell.  I aired out and Frebreezed my car immediately.

Perpetual Motion Baby

My flash was being silly so I took this picture and Chuy is blurry because she moves too much.

Mommy's baby

Chuy can blow the hair out of her eyes.

If I am on the computer, she must be with me.  So she brings her toys and plays on the floor behind me.

She likes to wipe herself with a baby wipe.
