Going For A Record Here...

Three days in a row!
I used to post everyday when I started this blog over 2 years ago. I can't believe I had the time or content for that. Oh wait, I've never had real high standards for content, never mind.

I took the kids to the dentist this morning. Bo was a superstar, all by himself. Avee I got to go back with because it was her first visit. I am SOOOOO curious to see how much her visit will cost. While I'm not complaining, because the dentist and his staff were wonderful and my kids felt like celebrities and will be very eager to go back in 6 months----all he did is brush her teeth with some water, while simultaneously checking out her grill. 30 seconds. If that bill is more than $50, I am SO going to be a dentist when I grow up.

Today J took the day off just cuz. He's been on the phone since 7:30 this morning. And they are all loud talkers too.

J didn't get home from work until almost 11 last night. Because the US Marshalls knocked on my door two days ago, asking if I'd seen "this guy", I was a little, uhhhhhhhhhhh, nervous about being home alone. I don't have nearly the entertaining conversations my friend Tori has at night when I'm home alone----but I can definitely get myself worked up over nothing.

Avee, seeing that I was alone in bed (reading) took advantage of the moment and rounded up her wand, princess camera, and decked out in her princess dress over her jammies, tried to join me in bed. I told her to sleep in her own bed. She promptly ignored me, went around to the other side of the bed and laid down. My back was to her. I pretended I didn't know she was there because I am weak when it comes to little redhaired 3 year old girls dressed like princesses and hauling half her toys from room to room at 10 pm. She didn't like being ignored so she started to rub my back, and fell asleep trying to get my attention whilst trying to pretend she wasn't there. She has always been an interesting combination of contradictions like that.

When J got home he hauled her to her bed.

At 5:30 AM I woke up to Avee's legs draped across me as she slept soundly. In her arms---her wand and camera. It made me laugh, right there, in a drunken sleep stupor, I laughed. I carried her back to bed.

20 minutes later I opened my eyes because I heard an indignant "humph!" very close to my face. Avee was 4 inches from my face with her arms crossed, still holding the wand and the camera. She glares at me and says, "I said I will sleep with you. Stop moving me!"

She won.

I can't believe I just blogged about night-time adventures with my 3 year old. Told you my content standards are low.

As soon as J gets off the phone, now with his boss, we are going to get SO.MUCH.DONE.

Right after my afternoon nap.

"I said I am sleeping in here. Stop moving me." Priceless. Is this what I have to look forward too?

Your standards are much like mine- except I stick blog ads inbetween and your posts are funnier.

"I said I will sleep with you, stop moving me!" Oh my gosh, that is so cute and priceless, as mentioned. It actually made me laugh out loud.

Traci said...

Your content is everything it should be. You couldn't improve on such precocious adorableness anyway, now could you?

J, get off the phone. :)

That's good that you have the ability to laugh in the middle of the night. If my kids tried to have a coherent conversation with me in the night, I'd probably chuck something at their head. Not because I'm mean, but because I don't pull out of sleep well so I do strange things in the night! LOL!

Oh and I think your content is just fine! :)

I love the sleeping pictures! My mom has tons of those types of pictures of me. She said I would/could fall asleep anywhere... and it's still true.

This blog is not edited for content which is why I love it.

I thought about your grocery store story when the check-out guy at Albertson's today looked at me and said, "Hey, big mamma"

What the fetch? Who trains these people?

I love they way your kids "sleep".
