Our first stop was his elementary school. They have a donation box in the parking for clothes. I had a small bag of items to donate and so the school made the to do list.
As we drive in the parking lot the silence in the car is broken and he notices we are driving up to school ...
Little Mister: Why are we here? I thought I was still sick.
Me: You are still sick. I am making a donation to the box in the parking lot.
Babycakes: Cool ... we are dropping off Little Mister.
Me: Baby you can not donate your brother. We are donating clothes.
Babycakes: Oh snap!!
Gotta love it ... her solution for an annoying brother. Just donate him to another family! I never thought of it!
Well today Babycakes and I popped in Publix for popsicles. I had been to three different grocery stores searching for one brand of popsicles that he likes that do not have food coloring. What a Mommy will do for a sweet boy taken ill with Strep. Anyway ... store #4 and still no favorite popsicles. So Babycakes and I decided to move on and I let her pick out something just for her. Her choice ... Dora shaped popsicles. They looked positively gross ... but she was beside herself with excitement!
As we were leaving I saw the oddest thing yet to happen in that parking lot. The police officer working off duty as security went home with a patron. And not just any patron ... but one that could not even be a day older than 16. She could drive but if she was 18 then I am 25. And I promise you I am not. They were making out in the car like you would not believe and I could not stop staring. It was just like a train wreck ... I was afraid to look away. I could not tear my eyes off them ... even as they drove away. As I think of it I am sure my mouth was wide open and completely embarrassing!
All I am saying is this ... you will not find me giving that particular Publix any more of my money. I am afraid what I will see next!!!
Oh ... and guess what? The very gross looking Dora shaped popsicles are dye free! Who knew? He was thrilled ... at least he ate something!
She is knee deep in birthday parties today for both her boys and Coach is out of town (as usual). She can rock a birthday party like no one .. and pull off two in one day without even upsetting her Barbie flip pony tail.
The Lawyer family had planned to spend most of the day at her house. Two birthday parties to attend mixed in with some girl time I was super psyched. That is ... until Little Mister returned home from a playdate yesterday sporting a temp of 103. Let's just say he is not at all happy that I will not let him attend all flushed, yet pale, slinty eyed and hacking like he just took up smoking. Yes ... that would be a "no sir"!!!! I even convinced him to take Tylenol (which he NEVER does!!!) in the event he might perk up. That did not even work and now he is really hacked off since I "tricked" him. Lawyer did not think it would be so great if I took Babycakes and headed out without him considering he is so upset. I guess that makes sense ... but I am bummed not to be going! (Little does he know she and I will be sneaking out for some Clemsongirl time when he takes Little Mister to the er ... I mean he should be gone for hours! Right?)
If you get a sec ... send her some birthday wishes ... She Rocks!!!

A sneak peek ... here is what I have found so far ...
Can you check your HTML ...
the main wrapper says $startside,
the middle wrapper says $startside, and
the right wrapper says $endside
what do yours say? I am thinking the main wrapper takes precedence and the middle one should float a different side ...
But ... as you can tell it is not right, yet! I have three columns .. but somehow I got two on the right and not one on the left. I used the Minima Stretch Lefty instructions and somehow it is not quite right ...
How do you get a third column? You know stuff on both sides of the posts ...
How do you get a background that is not solid ... say for instance pink and white gingham?
Help me ... I am still trying to figure out my blackberry, finish my website and now design this blog to look less 2008 ...
and I need some help!!! So bring it on!!
Yesterday we planned to go bowling. After our Saturday chores we were headed out to Cosmic bowl at the bowling alley. My kids love to bowl and Lawyer was on a league as a child. He can bowl!! Babycakes says he curtsies when he bowls ... if you say so!
Where was I? Oh yes ... while we were doing chores I developed a gas bubble in my ribcage. It has happened before so I know what to do ... lay on the heating pad, drink a soda and usually it will pass. Yesterday it persisted, I grew naseous and finally threw up. Yuck for me .. but then the gas bubble was gone and we were about our day.
We are bowling our second game and Babycakes has made friends with the little family to the right, a dad and two boys. The younger one, Matthew, and Babycakes have quite the conversation going and she is in full girl mode! The family is preparing to leave at the end of our second game and Babycakes has now struck up a conversation with the father. They are chit chatting and I hear her say ... "we were late because my mommy had gas!".
See ... those are the things we don't share with others!
His reaction as she is saying WHAT THE HELL? as loudly and slowly as she possibly can?
He stops typing on his blackberry, looks to the right at me and says "That is your daughter!" Apparently she gets her bad language from me ... but I don't know what the hell he is referring to!
And there you go ...
He is on the middle school baseball team. Their first game was yesterday afternoon. Great game, great weather ... all and all good day! That is ...
... until his baby sister standing up in the back of the stands says very loudly, very clearly and very slowly ...
Give me a couple of days ... I will be back ... pinky swear!
