Been a busy couple days. Punkin's teacher called on Friday saying he was very out of sorts--crying, messy diapers, more crying. So I went and got him. He was sitting on his yellow triangle, chewing on Ducky, and whining softly to himself. When I walked in, he looked up and said "nuk?!" (pacifier). He was asleep before we got home. Once we got home he ate two corndogs, 3/4 of a can of fruit, and two cups of milk. Then he slept for well over two hours. When he woke up, we went to the doctor. Apparently his ear looks worse. The doctor on Monday said he could see his eardrum. This doctor said he couldn't because of all the wax. Neither were sure about his tubes. But they said he's just fighting a virus, and to keep an eye on him. So, probably when we're on vacation in a week he'll develop a fever and an ear infection. =) What do I do if his tubes have fallen out again? I don't think it makes sense to keep repeating the same procedure with poor results. He had tubes at one and then again at two. Now he's only 2 and 1/2 and he may need them again????? I always think of the movie 28 Days with Sandra Bullock: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.
I helped with a wedding this weekend--my best friend in junior high. I mostly ran interference and pinned flowers on people. It's almost overwhelming to see someone have their dream come true--that event you've been whispering about since you were little girls, drawing pictures of your side-by-side houses with an underground tunnel connecting the two.
Today he was PERFECT at church! He even sat for a few minutes by himself coloring on his mini Magna Doodle. I LOVE that thing! Then right before the sermon he fell asleep (snuggled against me, of course, because it was exactly what I needed). And he woke up right as the sermon ended and asked for his Opa. I made the mistake of wearing a skirt with an elastic waist, so the entire time I was pulling it up so everyone behind me didn't see my undies. I was, of course, in the second row (he does better sometimes up front because he can see the action).
I have never seen a child, or any person for that matter, who loves Hamburger Helper like my Punkin does. OH MY goodness. He probably ate 2 cups of it today. At least. And it wasn't the cheesy kind. He likes Beef Pasta. With peas mixed in. He's just a "nooooo-null" eatin' fool.
So the title. =) Hehehehehehe.........snort.............hehehehehe...........close eyes and laugh so hard no sound comes out....gasp.........snort..........hehehehehehe. ANYway. I was standing in the checkout line at the grocery store when I hear, "My a** is so tight." I of course have to turn and look. I mean, duh. This guy, no more than 20, is walking with a stick figure, I mean a girl, and they are in workout clothes. Then she says, "Ya, my hamstrings." So obviously they were working out and his butt is sore. But I couldn't take it. There was no one with me to look at with those big eyes and that tight-lipped grin that says, "What the H-E double hockey sticks? That is so random and funny." So as soon as I got to the car, I called Laura who died laughing.
Disaster averted. For four days I have been unable to play Crickler. And it took me four days, but I figured out what was wrong and fixed it all by myself. Needless to say, I was ecstatic. Crickler is basically crossword puzzles for ADD people. They are online, all of the clues are next to the spaces, and it adjusts difficulty based on the player's ability. I would NEVER do a crossword on paper, but I LOVE these. Did I mention I love them????
My parent's friend gave them Pagemaker and Photoshop for their beautiful new Mac. I am ridiculously jealous.
Has anyone else seen the commercials for Meerkat Manor? If you haven't, let me tell you that it is NOT about a house or a family or a tiny British town. It is about meerkats. There is a voice-over similar to Desperate Housewives. There are exaggerated rats.
