How To Annoy Me

Someone came by this morning.

He asked if he could have some vegetables from the garden.

I said sure, but please do not take the tomatoes.  There have only been a few, mainly Sun Golds and I do not want to share.

He tried to sneak a tomato.

Seriously?

I am very generous with my garden goodies but if you are trying to steal then you are not going to get anymore of my garden goodies.

Facepainting

We went to a Braves game.

Kidlet got her face painted.

Hair In Her Face

002

Someone sent me an email reprimanding me that Chuy always had her hair in her eyes.

Well, for your information, I put a barrette in every few hours or so and then she RIPS it out, along with her hair.


And honestly, I think it is funny that it bothered a stranger so much to reprimand me.  Really?  Of all the scary, crazy, awesome shit that is going on in the world, my kid's hair bothers you?

Trees fall

So a tree fell in our front yard.  It knocked some other branches down.  It was a big mess.

Imgur is a big old time suck.  This made me chuckle.

Reading Sleeping Beauty to her sister

Some days are long and frustrating.  Then your older child reads to the younger and it is better.

ANTS

There was a swarm of ants in the mailbox. YUCK!!!

Kidlet is eating her nachos with chop sticks.

Chuy is just shoving chips into her mouth.

Correct Usage

Kidlet curses and I am fine with it.  She knows when and where to do it.  I am sure this will bite me in the ass later in life but honestly, I was like the last person who learned the word fuck in grade school and I wish I were better prepared.

To show you correct usage:

Yesterday:  Oh shit!  Lola just pooped in the house!

Today: Oh shit!  Chuy just pooped in the bath!

Notice the verb poop as opposed to using shit as a verb.  Gotta work on that.

The Diapering Chronicles

Kidlet was a dream baby.  She fell asleep easily, smiled readily and got diaper rash twice in the whole time she was getting her butt wiped by me.  Both times were because she had a swim diaper on.  That was easily rectified.

Chuy is in a perpetual state of getting a diaper rash or having a diaper rash or getting over a diaper rash.  Since it is summer her diaper rash seems a constant.  I have changed brands of diapers, wipes and creams all to no change in her sore little bottom.  Last year, when it was warm I took to washing her butt in cool water (it occurs to me that in puberty when my children read whatever form this blog will be by then will be horrified and hate it), I tried that now and she is far too squirmy to do that.  Seriously, the amount of energy it takes to get a soapy toddler to be still for one freaking moment so you can get the last bit of shit out of her ass crack so it does not cause her but to become a irritated mess is more than I have.

And no it not yeast.  I have asked about yeast.  Freaking yeast is supposed to make bread and beer.

I am just ranting and rambling.

Please excuse this post about shit.
