Guess who cursed? Yuppers…my lovely 2 year and 9 month old son. And he did it soooooooo well.
We were having dinner and he got up from the table, went to the living room and picked up one of his storybooks. Brought it back to the kitchen and I asked him what he was doing. His response “I want to read a book.” And I said “We are eating dinner, no books right now, put that back.” and my little angel said “Fucking Christ!”, threw the book onto the ground and got back in the chair.
Not really sure whether to laugh or cry I asked him what he just said and he repeated it, albeit very quietly…
I told him we don’t say those words, they are bad words and left it at that. Haven’t heard anything since, but still think it’s kind of hilarious and had to put it down for posterity – on the internet that is.


Okay so I’m poor… April 15, 2012

…and now that I’ve gotten that off my chest I feel better. On the upside,  I think  I have accepted poverty (for now) and will just deal with it.

We are going to try to battle it a bit though. Step One – get a car that doesn’t burn so much gas. We have two trucks right now and they both average 16mpg so we are going to dump mine and get a car that will get more like 30mpg.

And I’m going to start loving cheap stuff!!! Baking for example – cheap and gratifying…and Colin loves to sample the results so it works for everyone. I really like the decorating part better than the baking. And after months of trying I have finally figured out royal icing. And I’m starting to make biscuits for the pups…hopefully better for their skin and coats.

Also, running – have decided to run a marathon this year so I’m training now. Wish me luck on this one cuz it ain’t gonna be easy. Because for me I can’t just do a marathon, I have to do a trail marathon in the hills of Connecticut. Should be interesting to say the least.

Oh – and I have to share this Colinism: sitting at dinner the other night. He’s on my lap, hugs me and says “mommy i love you, you are the best mom” then looks over at Dan and says “and daddy you are my dad and you are the best dad”…Misty comes over cuz she’s looking for scraps and Dan says “and who is that”…Colin’s response: “This is my sister Misty!” and he gives her a big hug. Totally unprompted, we never say Misty is his sister and yet she is just a part of his family…And Stormy is his pest 🙂

So that’s my update – not much else going on…
