My Weekend in Bullet Points

  • Friday night I grabbed my girls and stopped by an evening baby shower/playdate. It was awesome except when both children hit the 2 hours-past-our-bedtime-what-kind-of-mother-are-you wall. They both dealt in their own way. Goldie, for example, proceeded to try to kick the crap out of her good friend Kaylee in a winner-take-Cinderella-Tea set challenge that was sort of like watching a toddler cagematch. Also, there was the grand mal seizure tantrum fully clothed in the pool because I was all "you can't wear clothes in there." and she was all "watch me." Ruby took a more standard approach to expressing her displeasure at the not in bed yet situation and took her show the screaming, beet red face, alligator tears route. Yeah. So there was that.0
  • Saturday we took the day off from organizing and drove 45 min. to Sonic and stuffed ourselves as only our clan knows how. Disgusting. Then we hit up our niece (who is quite a bit older than I am) for a bbq and playdate where we realized that once again our children were among the nap-free and the expected mayhem ensued with the exception that Roob decided it was a great time for boobfest 2007 (see:Flashing boob in front of people I don't know that well; severe mental anguish). I could have done without seeing her try to latch on to my brother-in-law.
  • Sunday our church met out at a farm where I smashed my face into the hard reality of Expecting Too Much From Your Toddler. Church service in a serene, quiet landscape+Babbling brook/pond in background+2 year old=Fucking Nightmare. At least she got to see her favorite poultry "CHEK-EN! CHEK-EN!" so that sort of saved the day.

Organizing updates when I come up for air. Big, BIG project.

I am laughing at your entire weekend. At least I'm not the only one who stretches my toddler to the limit. Ever since we've had our second baby it seems that we test our boundries every day with her.

My girlfriend and I took our kids on an outing last summer. (Her 4 girls ages 3 to 10 and my 2 boys ages 3 and 5) She must have the secret handbook to Teaching Your Youngens How To Behave In Public because her kids were golden and of course mine were hell on wheels. Glad I'm not a loner in this club!

Kird, Kaylie(the ass-kickee) is ready for another playdate with the overtired 2 year old bruiser(aka - Goldie, is that her WWF name?). Let's plan another cage match soon....oops, I mean play date.

I'm sorry but I'm laughing so hard that I'm choking on my sandwich. Please post disclaimers.
