My 4 1/2 yr. old can cut in a straight line...

Recently, my four-and-half-year-old daughter decided she wanted bangs. She also decided that she was capable of giving herself those bangs. When I arrived home from work the day my daughter turned hairdresser, my sister showed me a small pile of blond hair. My sister was feeling quite apologetic and I assured her if my daughter was that determined it would have happened under my watch too. I then explained to my daughter how dangerous it is for her to cut her own hair and pleaded that she ask the next time she wanted her hair cut. My daughter simply stated she wanted bangs like Abilgail (a girl in her class) and she'd "promise to ask next time."

But I gotta mention, she did a pretty good job...(I wonder if she taking tips from the Hairapy Guys!)

Taking care of Mommy...

I woke up feeling extremely ill around 4am this morning. I was quite nauseous and made several runs to the bathroom. At 7am, hoping the sickness had passed, I helped my kids get ready for daycare. But, soon I ended up bent over the toilet again. My two-year-old son had never seen someone throwing up before. He found it fascinating. My daughter put on her mommy hat and patted me on the back. Though I didn't care much for an audience, I was too weak to scoot my kids out of the bathroom. My son continued to watch me heaving. He cocked his head to one side and kept asking, "Mom-my? Mom-my?" With his limited vocabulary, I didn't know if he was trying to ask if I was alright or what I was doing?

Plasma Car -- One Cool Ride-On Toy!

Have you heard of the Plasma Car?

It has to be the coolest ride-on toy I've ever seen or rode on. It's one of my daughter's favorite Christmas toys.

It's one of my favorites too-because it doesn't take batteries or need to be charged. It runs on pure energy (yah, I don't understand it either). Plus, the car is easy enough for a toddler to use. Read more about Plasma Car here.

What An Excuse

In Texas, there's a great burger joint called Whataburger. They also happen to serve awesome breakfast taquitos. Currently, Whataburger is airing a commercial for their breakfast taquitos where a guy is so into his bacon, egg and cheese breakfast taco-he's made himself late for work. The Whataburger narrator suggests if you find yourself in this prediciment to purchase several breakfast tacos to take with you to work. "Then, your not the guy who was late, you're the guy who brought breakfast. And everybody loves that guy."
Well, my sister picks my kids up from daycare for me. And I try and rush home from work so she won't have to watch them too long without me. I was running late yesterday due to a FedEx stop and a stalled vehicle on the toll way. I called my sister to see if she needed me to pick up anything. She had forgotten to pick up diapers for her son-so
when I finally arrived at my sister's house, I wasn't the mom who was late, I was the mom who brought diapers!
(Next time you're running late -think of something to bring your babysitter!)
