More Toddler Tales

He's a smart little thing. Well, smarter than I think he is. I am always amazed at his intuitive leaps and his comprehension. Yeah, I'm a proud mama!

Husband took a half day off so I could have a half day off. I went shopping and got a massage. My fave thrift store was having a sale so I went a bit nuts. I bought some crappy jeans and I plan to decorate them with a bleach pen. Well, I will probably have to wait until my mother gets here. Bleach and toddler do not mix. I also got books and a bag of toys for the baby. I have a day off and I shop for him. I also missed him a little.

The day off was great. Husband it a wonderful husband for giving me these days. I'd go nuts without them. Just going to the grocery store with the toddler takes twice as long and I get half as much done. The half days allow me to shop at my own pace.

Goofy Blog Stuff

Okay, I took a few of those "What kind of ___ are you?" tests. I'm posting the ones I liked the best. I made my husband take a few. He did really well on teh 8th Grade Science test. Yup, I've got me one of them 'nerds'. :-)

Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

Very popular, one of you is not enough.

The Movie Of Your Life Is A Cult Classic

Quirky, offbeat, and even a little campy - your life appeals to a select few.

Cheese Pizza

Traditional and comforting.
You focus on living a quality life.

You Are a Boston Creme Donut

You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.

More from Plague Central

Both husband and baby have recovered. Well, both are still a bit crabby but, nothing coming out of their bodies that shouldn't be naturally coming out. I went through 4 t-shirts and 3 sets of sheets. It is amazing how bad the house gets when the baby is sick. Then again, it is fairly disasterous when he is healthy.

Back again

Well, since my first post was such a success, (I think one person looked at it) I decided to continue. The toddler has a bit of a runny nose. That translates to a lot of snot on me and a cling-y kid. It's amazing how many things there are to worry about when you are a mother. "What if this is something big?" "Is it just a cold or something else?" "Did he get it from that kid in playgroup who *always* has a runny nose?"

First Blog

I guess this is my first blog here. I signed up so I could leave comments for a fave author of mine.

Hmmm, I wonder what I could do with my blog?

Could I change the world? Post exciting facts? Change the life of one person?

Probably not. I'll have to think about it for a while.
