Ahhh Children Are So Honest!

There is always that one time when you might be in the store and there is a old person and your child has to point them out and say "oh my gosh that person is so old!" yea totally embarrassing! So I want to let you in on some funny, witty, honest comments I have been told this last week. Oh and look it's only Tuesday!

"Mama why is your hair black and purple?". "Well alora I love to dye my hair fun colors." "Well mama then if you want it like that maybe you should cover ups your silvery hairs."

"Denise why is there a hole in your pants? Is it because your legs are fat?"

"Denise I went to school today. I told them everyone farts even my babysitter."

And the Best I saved for last...

Preschools Without Structure...

If I am paying hundreds of dollars a month for a preschool my child goes to two-three times a week for a few hours I want them to learn, have fun, listen and behave. I mean that's me you might disagree but what else would you want from school?

I know this preschool that ha no structure what so ever. Basically the kids run around all day doing whatever they want. Now this is a conversation between a mom and a teacher I heard.
Mom "Oh this is a beautiful story book and drawing it go with it!" Teacher "oh Micheal didn't want to listen to the story so I just let him go and play with the blocks."
Ok so the kid drew a picture, where mind you he is 4, of a brown scribble. Like took his anger out on a crayon scribble. Ok some 4 year olds are not artist of course but even Alora who hates to paint, color anything crafty will do what she is told and attempt something. Clearly this kid was give a paper and crayon and that's it.

This kid was allowed to do whatever he wanted while the entire class was listening to a story. So that was when I was dropping a kid off. So I stayed to observe the things going on in the class room. It was chaos! No structure nothing. I later had a chat with the teacher where I asked her what the day was like and what the children were allowed to do. Basically her response was.
Well we have a schedule see it here but they are allowed to explore anything they want and are never made to do anything on this schedule. ARE YOU F'in SERIOUS?!
I believe even at the age of 3-4 a child should sit for story time, be at the table during snack time, listen and get ready to go outside with their class. What is this crazy Crap?
Am I being to strict? I don't think so I mean come on don't you make your child do stuff at home? My children, husband and I are at the table eating together! This gets me steaming! So basically these kids have no structure and when they come home are off the wall and don't think they have to listen. Like I heard another mom say "Well Sally here will be running the show in no time if they handle a class this way." She was the only mom who thought the way I do apparently! God I hate snobby people who just let their kids run ragged...

What are your thoughts on this?

And I just want to put out there this is not our preschool! We love the structure of our preschool and the trouble they are in when they don't listen! A firm hand is welcome and needed in some cases! (and no not spanking people.)

Thankful Thursday *week 1*

I want to start this thankful Thursday so that I can remind myself week after week of one thing I am thankful for that happened during the week. It is always easy to say, "I am thankful for my children." "I am thankful for my spouse." "I am thankful for my family." Etc Etc. However it is harder to pin point one thing during the last 7 days to focus on being thankful about. So over the next couple of months I will be posting every Thursday something I am thankful for that happened the week before. Please feel free to comment on here on what you are thankful for this week! Funny, Serious, Sad, Everything goes.

I am thankful for the woman who pulled up next to me at the red light singing the LOUDEST she can and noticing me singing as loud as I can to the same song! We then proceeded to bop our heads and wiggle our bodies while in a weird kind of sing off.

I am thankful for this because this made think if even for a minuet that this world is as happy as a song, as sad as a song, as scary as a song, as playful as a song or just everything like a song. A song can come in many ways many genera's. Songs are about life no matter if it is good or bad. Songs can express everything! It pretty much kicks arse.

So woman in your silver Honda Mini Van if you are reading this YOU ARE WHAT I AM THANKFUL FOR THIS WEEK!
Crazy bad singers in minivans like myself :)

Skinny People...Fat People...Tall People...Small People...

So I had the pleasure of attending the Life Is Good Festival today and I just wanted to share what I saw and heard today.

There is no denying I am a fatty. I don't mind I like it. But before you judge someone make sure you know the whole reason. I have been big since the end of high school. But in the last 3 years I have got sick with my ears, and the head surgery I needed put me on some pretty powerful drugs which has made me gain a lot of weight. I have never been this big but until I am healthy there is nothing I can do about it. So with that said.

I was in line with my kids waiting to make a flip book. When I heard two woman chatting right behind me. They were in line behind me. RIGHT behind me. So I Know this next conversation was about me.

Skinny B***h 1- "Oh my God. The woman at the door area just totally tried to give me a yogurt when i told her no they were to fattening she said they were fat free. I mean come on I don't want to be, well you know (snorts like a pig) fat. (Bursts into laughter.)"
Skinny B***h 2- "Um yeaaaa being fat is gross (as I sip my coffee) yea like I wont even go to Starbucks anymore have you seen their calorie count? Come on there are things you can do to maintain looking decent."

I turned around took a HUGE chuck of my coffee followed by a chug of my free yogurt smoothie (which I had no intentions of eating because it was gross) and said "Oh my gosh I know fat people are so gross and ruin everything!"

This shut them up pretty fast. First of all you are 5 foot nothing and weight about 80 pounds turn around leave the flip book line and go to the other booth and buy/eat a cheese burger. You are gross not only because you never eat but because your mind is sick.

So anyway before I go off even more. How do you handle a situation like that? By the way the guy in front of me heard then entire thing and asked me if I was ok. That is nice we had a whole conversation about rude people and he followed it up with "Well life is good, and they just don't see that!" he was a pretty kick ass guy...

Celtic Thunder Concert... Boston's Wang Theater

Can I start off by saying Celtic Thunder is phenomenal! Their voices are powerful, beautiful and genuine! They are all pretty handsome (Even with Damien going to Glee) so they are a site to watch!

Second of all they have a new member of the group since Damien is leaving and he is at the ripe ol' age of 13 and his name is Daniel. OH MY GOODNESS was his voice so pure and amazing! He sang "Some Where Over The Rainbow" last night and I about broke down in the worst tears of my life! He was cute with a wonderful on stage personality! He did some great little scenes one of which he sang "You Got A Friend In Me" with Keith where he mimicked every move Keith made! So adorable! Of course I am a huge fan of George! And the line of the night was me in a weird deep rabbid voice saying to my MIL "I just love him I want to just rub all over his bald head!" I love tall bald men!

The Wang Theater is just spectacular! It is beautiful in every way imaginable! The walls covered in "stories" of fat little cherubs and angels. The seat though for this fatty where way to small! MIL, large male stranger and I got very close to each other to say the least! But there is one thing that got my blood BOILING in this place. Last year when we saw them I stood and sang clapped my hands and just had a wonderful night. I mean it is Celtic Thunder its not like people are going to mosh pit! Well a few groups stood up during "I got Friends In Low Places" and this large OLD woman (who shouldn't be working in a theater) came running down the isles yelling at everyone! Come on its a concert where 90% of the audience is over the age of 70 let them stand up and clap! Everyone sat down so what does this masshole do? Yup me! The very outspoken one. I stand up during the next upbeat song (they do a great job of alternating fast and slow songs) and I start clapping! Well before I know it the whole place is up with me and everyone is singing! I am sure I wasn't the first one standing but I was in my section! Well this drove the old lady with the Mardi Gras beads and flash light crazy! She was legit running well waddling up and down the isle flashing her light! HAHA I was dying laughing, clapping and singing! It was the BEST.

So all in all it was a great night with the MIL and this year no cars drove threw our house (yes that is what happened last year when we were at Celtic Thunder.) Beautiful show as always so thank you Celtic Thunder I tip my hat to you!

I'm the best dang wife... I deserve more then a trophy...

Ok so maybe I don't actually have a trophy but if I did I would want something bigger or something more special then a fake gold statue holding something that has nothing to do with my amazingness.
Us woman are all trophy wives. The men well don't get that. My local news just did a segment On who is the bigger baby when they are sick. This whole segment proves we are the more superior race and deserve more then a fricken trophy.
They interviewed couples upon couples and it was one couple only one that the man blamed the wife for being worse. Really!? So 99% of these couples agree the men are weaklings.
What makes all of this even worse is I then read articles on what men think a woman should be there for. Here I was thinking hey it isn't 1872 anymore we are equal. NOPE. Here are some interestings things I have found just by the good old trusty google.

"Over half of married respondents say the wife is most likely to do six household chores: laundry, cleaning the house, making decisions about furniture and decoration, preparing meals, caring for the children (for couples with children under 18), and doing the grocery shopping. Respondents are also significantly more likely to say the wife, rather than the husband, washes dishes and pays the household bills."

Mail man and I fight almost daily over house hold crap. Usually it ends in a screaming match me chucking something (soft come on I'm not abusive) at his head him laughing and running off doing a half ass job on what we were arguing about in the first place. I heard about these moms who go on strike and refuse to do things. Ya sorry living in a pile of dirty pull ups, food, laundry and other things that crawl to prove a point is not my cup of tea. So I just fight it out lol.

Last night was another night I lost control of the house. Laundry piled high, no vacuuming in site, dishes in the sink, counters covered in crap and where is the mail man? Oh look at the playstation. This gets me boiling then I go into Alora's room and what's in there? Oh candle wax all over her floor! Shaved candle wax! Well this got my blood boiling even more!
Insert fight here....

Fight ended and mail man was upstairs with son cleaning his entire room and getting home work done dinner was served (after I cooked it) beds were made and children in bed. All I did was dinner and bed I refused to do anything else. Am I the only one here who feels this way? I mean it's not like I stay home all day and can keep up with everything and half the money making is me as well. So shouldn't the chores?

Which brings me back to the fact I want a damn trophy or something. Even tho I work all week during the weekend my entire home gets clean laundry gets folded and kids still get fed and played with. What is mail man doing? Oh right playing play station... Jerk...

Yankee Candle Flagship Adventure.

So the SIL and I decided to take a road trip to the Yankee Candle Flagship Store in Deerfield Mass which is very far away, ok well only a 2 and 1/2 hour drive. I have never been there before and well I love candles and I had super coupons! Hey not every day you have buy1 get1 coupons from Yankee. So off we went.

Now she told me like two days before hand "oh I need to go to the DR's that morning real fast!" Yea her DR's is 45 mins north of Boston (I am 15 mins south) so thanks Frankie! HAHA but it was ok might as well turn a 2 and 1/2 hour drive to like a million hours! :)

We finish up there and Frankie turns her trusty GPS on. We head off up the Mass Pike. Before I know it (30 mins later) it has us get off. Wow that isn't such a long ride. Then we start driving threw these little towns which I never heard of in my life! On and on we went more then an hour we are driving on these back roads lala going and going I am like "Frankie your GPS S**Ks and we are in the middle of no where why did it take us off the Pike?" Oh no she swears its this way and it is in the middle of no where and thats why. YUP we ended up back near the pike and FINALLY after over 3 hours we are there! Oh this was after we drove the other way on the main road it is off of because she set her GPS to the main head offices not the store. Ok SIL you are forgiven :) We finally arrive! It is magic.

We decided after being in the car for 4 hours at this point (we left at 8am got there at noon) we were going to hit up the restaurant on the other side of this massive place! Perfect because then we can work our way back to the car. On the way there we find a horse drawn wagon doing hay rides for a buck! A BUCK! Bonus! We buy our way in and Alora and I climb in next thing you know no guide nothing the horses take off me and Alora in the wagon alone. LOVELY! More like "ahhhhhhhhh I just sh*t my pants!" The guy ran over and calmed down the horses ok back on track.

After a nice calming ride (HA) we started off again towards the food. We came across a giant pumpkin, one of those painted cows and Oh you know just Santa working at the pumpkin stand with Mrs. Claus.

We get seated and we have an awesome seat! We are put in this little area that has a bunch of windows! It is our own little nook! I am in love! The food was good, we finish and the shopping begins. 6 hours of shopping it was amazing! Best place ever! Here are some pics of the rest of our day.

Auntie Frankie Making A Wax Hand.
Alora Making Mommy A Pumpkin and Cinnamon Candle
Just A Half Of Car In The Middle Of The Store
Hats With Auntie Frankie
The Amazing Popcorn Stand I got Cinnamon Toast Popcorn. Nice Warm Heaven!
Snowing. This Is Obviously Alora Throwing The Snow After It Fell From The Sky.
As She Said. "Going Into The Battle Of Hogwarts."
You Know If It Wasn't Enough They Added A Boat In The Store Too.

So after the million hour drive, run away horses, ugly people (that is a post for a different day) and many inside jokes I was tired! Alora did amazing walking for 6 hours and I saved loads with coupons!

Oh and if you are wondering we turned off Frankie's GPS used Helen (my GPS yes her name is Helen) we got right on the pike and our drive home was half the time. Just saying :)

Do you have any awesome little day trip stores like this where you live?

Tie Die Fun... Bad Mom Epic Fail...

My awesome self thought it would be a good idea to take on a tie dye challenge with my kids. Simple right? Hahaha not with my kids. So yea I have never tie dyed in my life, I know terrible childhood right? I was deprived a lot. :) However I was at micheals the other day buying ribbon for bows where I saw two cute little tie dye kits and I have always wanted to tie dye with my babies, and there they were on clearance, and if that wasn't a sign enough, one was pink and yellow the other blue and red both combos are the kids favorites. So I bought them for a buck a pack.

So comes the time to actually do it. Well I take all the right steps with adding water, getting the wet shirts and most importantly doing it somewhere it wont dye crap. So I make my kids sit in the middle of my drive way. Haha mean mom strikes again.

We tie up the shirts rolling twirling all that special stuff which with a four year old this isn't easy because it was "taking to long" yea shut up kid it's been 3 mins. I lay them on the ground and off they go.

5 seconds in the kid is covered in dye! What the heck! Seriously kid? You are gross? No you are is there something special going on with you? I mean common sense look even the four year old is clean! Yup it was the preteen covered in dye. Lovely.

Whatever we move on. Then I realize omg this is dye yes permanent dye and Alora is wearing her new pants! CRAP KID TAKE YOUR PANTS OFF. Oh shoot it is 55 degrees and we are in the drive way and she is in a long tee and undies. Hey it looks like a dress right? Kids are never cold. This didn't phase her as much as it did me. Yup bad mom strikes again.

We finish it all yup and I read the final step wrap your shirt in plastic wrap. Um I didn't see this step so um I don't have that. What house doesn't have that? Ugh bad mom strikes again! Anyway I put them in freezer bags lol. I am sure this will work? Right?

So we go in wash up and the kids move on. This whole project takes 10 mins. I am exhausted and it as the worst ten mins of my life. Really?! Ten minuets?! Ugh.

So we leave it over night it says 6-8 hours or longer for more intense colors. Well it better be intense colors after 15 hours.

EPIC fail... Bad mom strikes again... How hard is tie dye really? It was 35 degrees last night. Look we woke up to frozen shirts! Ugh. But this is what came of them after we pulled them all a part :) Not to bad I guess? Minus they were frozen!

And yea my son NEVER has a shirt on. Ugh Men.

Have you tie dyed and how did it come out? By the way the kids are still pink red and blue

How To Deal With People You Don't Like.

I love to do things that make people uncomfortable when I don't like them or they Pi** me off. Which leads them to not like me, not talk to me and usually walk away. I have also had loads of input from my friends and family on this :) I will not give credit to anyone here as I do not want their attack known to anyone on the "outside."

1. When someone is talking to you about something that is completely boring or out of your interest, while looking in their face to listen to this jibber jabber take a finger in your nose (if you want put a tissue on first) and start digging for gold. Trust me they won't talk any longer if at all.

2. When driving (usually over the speed limit here in my town) and someone gets so close to you it is annoying. Slow down, drive 25, roll down the windows and SING LOUD. When you come to a stop where they try and pass you stair them in the face rev your gas like you want to race and then BAM LET THEM GO! Just wave and laugh.

3. When a child you do not know comes up to you at the park and wants you to push them on the swing quietly say, "Sorry kid but I just ate my daughter because she asked the same thing and I am a bit full but will need desert soon so come back." Yea that kid will not come back they are afraid now.

4. When someone takes that last item from the store you were just about to take yourself, cough hard pretend to sneeze wipe that fake sneeze on your hand walk over to their cart stroke that item and say "You are so lucky I wish I got that last one." They will put it back on the shelf then go grab it!

5. When you are at the drive threw and the person behind you is getting so impatient because of the line and it is finally your turn to order slowly order like this, "Ummmmm yea ummmmm hmmm hold on... (30 second pause) Yea ummm I would like some nuggets and ummmm yea ummm what kind of soda do you have? Ok I will take a coke and ummmmmmmm hmmmm oh right I need a kids meal ummmmm what kind? Oh yea right Alora what kind do you want? ummmmm hmmmm she said burger ummmm hmmmmm no onions or wait does that have onions? oh ok yea no onions what else is on that? oh right just leave the cheese and ummmm pickle yea she wants a pickle... " Keep this going as long as possible.

So these are the most import things to do. There is many more I can think of but I will not bother you will that mumbo jumbo. Would you add anything else?

Children's Shows...

I am in LOVE with Phineas and Ferb, ICarly, and Spongebob. I know a big loser I am but hey! I see no bad things these shows do to make anyone angry? But now a days parents are making a HUGE fuss over these things. So let's look at some of the shows I watched as a kid.

GI Joe- Loaded with war crimes and death.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- Fought with all sorts of weapons.
Smurfs- There was only one girl and babies running around?
Ren and Stimpy- Ok that one came out in 1991 but still you got up close shots of boogers, feet juice and hair follicles. Gross.

We all turned out ok! We are just as smart as children who watch Spongebob, Phinease and Ferb, Dora and Mickey Mouse Club House. We watched whenever and whatever we wanted. Our parents never worried.
Did you know obesity has risen 60% since 1992 and diabetes is even worse. And you are telling me kids not getting up and out has to do with this? Nope last I checked tv viewing has decreased and these other rates increased. Now don't get me wrong I am not mom who lets their kids watch TV all day every day but when I am on vacation (like today) I am taking one day to sit on my arse on facebook and the kids can watch TV all day for all I care.

Also their behavior. REALLY?! You are going to blame THAT on TV?! Really!? Why don't you check your parenting skills before you go and throw blame. Last I checked I wasn't going out with a MK47, and that is what GI Joe did.

So basically what it comes down to is well stop witching and blocking your TVs because you know what that doesn't change a person YOU change a child YOU help mold that child into what he/she wants to be. But of couse don't let TV be your nanny either.

So My Daughter Just Ate Her Body Weight In Food...

My daughter is extremely tiny for her age. Up until she was 3 and 1/2 she was not even on the charts for her age group. She was born normal healthy 7lbs 8oz 19inches. But she just never seemed to grow after that. Her first birthday she wore a size 6month dress, her 2nd birthday 12months and just this past year on her 4th birthday (yea I am a bad mom can't remember the 3rd) she wore a size 2T. She currently wears a size 3T and weighs 25lbs.

So I just picked up some Chinese food for lunch. Just a regular take out box filled with rice and some other stuff. It was for the two of us to share.

She ate.
1 beef on a stick
3/4 box of rice
2 chicken wings
a whole egg roll
and 90% of my lobster sauce.

I am still hungry :/ How does this even happen? I mean I have heard of growth spurts but this? I usually have 1/2 left over to save for later (yum left over Chinese food is way better.) She is currently in a comatose state with our Harry Potter snuggy watching a movie... I thought only men did this?
Oh and she just finished off 4 Oreos and a glass of milk too...

This is just the most recent pick I have of her eating :)

Crazydog TeeShirts Review

This is probably my favorite site for some awesome, 80s, holidays and many more tees. I have a wicked sense of humor and to tell you the truth have no shame in any of it! CrazyDog TShirts really do rise above the rest!
I love this awesome selection of humor tees. I had the privileged to receive the " Amish Gone Wild" tee. It is super soft and fits awesome (3x nice loose and comfy.) I wore it to Alora's first day of school (classy I know) and everyone loved it!

A few of my other favorites are.

For The Son (he picked it after laughing for 20 mins.)

Cute Right?

And This one :) I mean what 80s kid didn't play this in "computer class."

There is also a $6.99 tee section where every day there is a new tee shirt for that price! Awesome right?

At super awesome prices, soft cotton and loads of funny things for adults and kids a like, how can you not like them? Sorry LOVE them!? CrazyDog TShirts are wicked!

Brought To Tears Just Thinking About Her Hair Cut....

It took my Alora 4 and a half years to grow the hair she has now and it is super curly so it reaches just past her shoulders. When it is wet it reaches all the way to her wee butt. I have never cut it. I never want to cut it. Just thinking of cutting it makes me sick and I cry. Pathetic I know.

See I think this has a lot to do with how my son ended up losing his long gold locks. I trusted my mother to take him to the cape for a few nights with the cousin and aunt. I was working the usual 50 hours in 3 days saving lives crap job. Well she took him for his first hair cut and BAMMMMM it was all gone. Nothing just a short boys buzz cut. All of his blond chin length whispy beautiful flowing hair gone.

I cried for weeks. No really randomly I would look at him or think about it and I would cry uncontrollably. I am a very emotional mom!

So you think I'm that bad with my boy imagine with my girl! I have been getting yelled at by all my hair friends that her ends are becoming dead and if I want it to grow and look amazing she needs a trim. Ugh just thinking this makes me sick.

So I sat down to my email from Disney world of things the family can do while at the park in December. Well one of the things said get a hair cut to look good for Santa! I always knew there was a barber shop on main street USA at the Magic Kingdom. But that's the thing you see it's a barber shop, not a beauty salon! Upon reading more I realize their specialty is first hair cuts. Then there is pictures of cute little babies getting their hair cut. They get stickers and Mickey ears that say first hair cut. Not so bad I guess.

So I decided on December 12, 2011 when we enter the Magic Kingdom our first step is Harmony Barber Shop. I am crying just thinking about it.

What was your first children's hair cuts like?
