George W. Bush Rocks My World

I know people have all kinds of bad things to say about George W. Bush, but I absolutely loved it. Now my preference for him has absolutely nothing to do with his politics and everything to do with the fact that he gives nicknames to everyone he knows. And I think that is awesome. I feel like you’re not truly my friend until I give you a nickname. Even my own children go by names that are completely different than the ones that are on their birth certificates. Nicknames are fun and personal and that is why George W. Bush rocks my world. The end.

The Tooth Fairy is Real!

My oldest son lost his first tooth last week. Now I don’t really care about Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny, but I want to make absolutely sure that my son believes in the Tooth Fairy. Thursday night he was so excited about the Tooth Fairy coming that he kept getting out of bed. My husband said loud enough for Liam to hear, “Did you hear that? I just heard fairy wings!” You better believe that he jumped into bed and was asleep in five minutes flat!

So the next day I picked Liam up from school as well as his five-year-old cousin. When he told her that the Tooth Fairy came to visit him last night, she bluntly announced to him that the “Tooth Fairy is just his parents, just like Santa and the Easter Bunny”. I argued with her that she thought that just because she hasn’t seen the Tooth Fairy yet. And Liam chimed in to defend me and said,

“Yeah, last night my dad HEARD her!”

(Yes!! He’s totally a believer!)

A Letter To My Toes

Dear Toes,

I’m so sorry that you have to be connected to my feet. I know this means that you will constantly be kicked into unsuspecting doors and cabinets. Sometimes I’m a little shocked that you are still connected to my body. I’m sure it must suck to continually be getting hurt, so I promise to always try to pamper you by getting pedicures and making sure you are shiny and pretty, even if you’re black and blue.


Your pathetic, klutzy owner

My Medium

We had a pumpkin carving party at a friend’s house yesterday. Every year I dread having to carve a pumpkin. But then once I get into it, I remember how much I love getting elbow deep in pumpkin guts and taking the quiet time to carve out my design. I am not an artist at all, but if I was…pumpkins would definitely be my medium. Forget oil paints and marble sculpting. I’m all about displaying my art on a beautiful orange squash. Oh, and I used my new Scoop Loop from Pampered Chef to dig out the seeds and it worked brilliantly! Happy Monday!

I am so tired. I wake up in the morning and feel like I haven’t slept at all. I’m pretty sure my brain just won’t turn off. I woke up this morning with bags under my eyes for the very first time. I know that it’s common for people to get bags under their eyes, but somehow I have gone 33 years without ever having them. Ugh. Praying I can shut off my thoughts this weekend.

Safety Dance

I have a real problem. I see kids on the street all the time riding their bikes or skateboarding and NOT WEARING THEIR HELMETS! I know it’s against the law, but it’s also super dangerous. And the most annoying part is that I see so many of them with their helmet hanging on their handlebars or they are wearing it unbuckled. I seriously want to yell at them to protect their noggins or get their mom’s number, so I can give her a call and let her know how the helmet is not being utilized effectively. Bah!

Feel the Beat

I was on the dance team in high school for two years, Varsity cheer the next two years and then did numerous dance classes through college. Because of these countless years of learning dance routines, I ALWAYS can hear a 5-6-7-8 with every song I listen to. I will be driving along listening to the radio and am subconsciously counting off a 1 to 8 beat in my head. Does this happen to anyone else? I seriously would have thought that would have stopped by now. I also choreograph dances to do in the car, but that’s a story for another day. ;)
