Current events

We've had record injuries lately.

Madeline had her finger bit by a tortoise, was busted in the lip with a dog bone, fell off the couch and hit her head on the table, was poked in the eyeball by Maison, and loads of other miscellaneous bruises and scratches.

Maison tipped a lawn chair and busted his lip really bad and smashed his finger, was hit in the head with a flying Skeeball ball, hit his head on the slide, had his finger pinched in a cabinet, head banged with mom, and lots of other misc. head bangs. That thing just gets in the way.

The other night, we had a water gun fight. Madeline and Thor ganged up on me & Maison. Maison was my partner-slash-shield. The kids loved it, except Maison when he was my shield. And Madeline when I accidentally got her in her eye. They got me pretty good considering the guns were just tiny little things from the Target dollar bins.

The kids had another trip to the zoo. With dad this time. While I went to a convention thingy and got lots of good skin stuff.

Madeline had a thing about her pudding. Thor was teasing that he was going to eat hers. It took us a while to notice that she was actually standing in front of, GUARDING, the refrigerator. We assured her that her pudding would be just fine, but she nearly broke down. Last week she whacked Thor for eating the last few bites of the ice cream. She's definitely her mother's daughter.

I think Madeline's going to need a bigger bed soon. Her feet almost touch the bottom. And with all of the toys she keeps in there I get claustrophobic just looking at her.

We had another fun trip to Chuck E Cheese. This time we met Jen and her kids. I can't believe the tokens we went through. Maison ran around like a mad man following the big kids and wandering off by himself too. Shorty was hard to find when he did that.

We have a new addition. Thor's such a proud papa. (It's a jalapeno)

Thor and I got to have a movie/lunch date. We saw Hangover, which was pretty funny. I think the last movie I saw in a theater was the third Lord of the Rings. Sad. This was definitely a nice break. Lunch without having to tip extra to make up for the mess on the floor and a non-cartoon movie. And I got my Milkduds. Perfect.

Awww, a real big girl bed. How sad are you going to be?!?

I thought that movie was hilarious. We were cracking up the whole time.

We were going to go to the zoo, but it is pretty expensive considereing what it is!

Quit abusing your kids woman!
