So I have a cousin who we'll call Shelly and basically her hobby is to become a fan of pretty much anything. So if I am ever bored or trying very hard to ignore the laundry I check out her page for amusement. Here are just some of the pages she has become a fan of lately. (and when I say lately, I mean today)
*For those who have experienced the pain of stepping on a lego
*I hate the one little thing that just ruins your whole day
*tripping in public and walking it off pretending like it didn't happen
*Laughing in a serious situation & trying to cover it up with a coughing fit
*I've ran into a wall at least once in my life
*I've always wanted to spin round in a chair & say "I've been expecting you."
*If you've ever pushed a door that said pull
*The problem with life is there is no background music.
*I really don't care how many calories it has, I'm hungry.
*I eat food while I'm waiting for my food to cook.
*Screaming at characters in movies to do something.
*When I was younger, I put my face close to the fan to hear my robot voice.
*Getting angry at an object because you tripped on it
*Remember when Math was actually numbers?
*My bed is more comfy in the morning than it is at night.
*My lips are chapped only when I can't find my chapstick
*Stealing 3D glasses from the movies
*Wipe off some of your three inches of makeup, it's not cute.
*If I didn't answer the phone the 1st time, or the 8th time, stop calling!
*Saying hello to random strangers
*Feeling like if you turn on all the lights, you will be safe from anything
*Walking the wrong way on escalators
*why can't my shampoo and conditioner run out at the same time?
*throwing something away and finding out that you need it months later.
*P.E. teachers shouldn't be fat
*I need more sleep
*Putting on warm clothes straight from the dryer
Okay that's all that I can bear to type for now. Anyhow that last one sounded strangely like a hint to get back to the laundry. I would join almost all of these but I am incredibly lazy.

T: How much is 100 plus 100?
6 year old: 200
T: How much is 200 plus 300?
6 year old: 5...hundred?
T: Yeah. Okay, if you know this one, I'm going to give you a crisp dollar bill. How much is 500 plus 500?
6 year old: 500 and 2
T: No! okay how about you spell something for the dollar?
6 year old: How about mom?
T: No that's too easy.
6 year old: How about dad?
6 year old:How about Subway?
T: No because if you're telling me the word, that means you already know how to spell it.
6 year old: How about NFL?
T: How about NO?
6 year old: Okay N-O.
T: Hey, you tricked me!
Laughter and Giggles all around
And that's how the six year old tricked my cousin out of a dollar.

I get sick of eating the same thing all the time and like to mix in other things even if they aren't his "favorites" and he isn't a child that I should have to cater every meal around him. What do you think? Am I totally off base here or should he suck it up and eat what I want occasionally?

My sons were not daunted and tried again this weekend. I was able to bring reinforcements this weekend and by reinforcements I mean three of my sisters. This was so we could divide the help among the two boys and also in the hope that they would be of more help to the boys since my main response to them falling was letting go of their hand and letting them fall. (Hey pregnant ladies don't have the greatest balance and I was afraid they would pull me down with them!) Anyway, it was still slow going especially since my boys have stubborn, independent little souls (especially the six year old) and generally resisted well meaning advice and helping hands. They live by the mantra of they can do it themselves which works well on solid ground and not so well on ice. At any rate no one was traumatized, no bones were broken and we will probably live to skate again. :)

What the hell is with schools giving my son homework projects where I have to do more than he does? The four year old's school is studying different countries of the world and decided to start with the different countries the kids come from. So he has to find, bring in something to represent his culture. So I suggest the flag and they say, that's great but maybe you could make something for the kids to eat at snack? Notice how they phrase it as a question as they demand I get up even earlier in the morning and cook for them. Anyway, so I agree to make tostones which are fried plantains figuring that would be pretty quick as you basically only have to slice them up and fry them. They say, that would be great, can you type up the recipe so they can display it. Wonderful. Any more work you want to give me? I would like to know what the four year old is now contributing towards this project. (Crickets)

So what is it about the beginning of the year that makes people feel they have to change everything? What if I had a fantastic 2009 and don't want to change a thing? So instead of making resolutions, I am making a list of things I am not changing.
- My diet. I am pregnant and under doctor's orders to gain 25-30 pounds over the next five and a half months. So that means, I am pretty much going to eat whatever I please and can manage not to barf up afterwards.
- My habits. Some might think it is a bad habit to spend a good chunk of the day while the husband is at work and the kids are at school on the blog but I consider it time well spend and have no intention of breaking the habit. I am also going to continue reading every book I get my hands on.
- My love life. Yeah it is pretty good the way it is.
- My job. For the most part being a stay at home is the best job. Other than my husband whom I'd have to deal with anyway, I've got no boss breathing down my neck telling me what to do and when to do it. I also don't have to deal with snarky comments from said boss when my kids are sick and I need to take a day. Also, I don't have to get dressed up if I don't want and I can wear whatever color or style I like. (I personally haven't had to deal with it, but I have heard about coworkers and bosses making comments about the height of necklines and hemlines and dress codes etc. etc. )
Anyway, I hope you start your New Year with at least a couple of things you have no intention of changing instead of resolving to change your whole life.
