They grow up so fast

Ramsey moved out. She couldn't take our stifling ways. She packed up her most precious belongings and moved in with Nena (my mom) "forever". (According to Ramsey, "Forever means until you die.") Isaac has declared this awesome because she always interrupts him while he's on the phone.

Evidently they are 14 and 16, not 4 and 6.
So, she piled all her crap in the hallway and packed it into a bag. Like any child moving out she also attempted to pack stuff that wasn't hers. Actually, looking at this picture, that bag is mine. Anyway, after packing she had me drop her off at my moms, it was around lunch time.

Forever ended up lasting until 8:30 tonight when she decided to come back. She plans to return to Nena's tomorrow. I'm pretty sure she only came back because she knows I'm going to make cupcakes. She mentioned she would only be staying here that long.

But Really

Why can't you eat a chocolate Santa bigger then your arm at 9:30 pm when you didn't eat dinner and should have been in bed 2 hours ago and are screaming your head off every 10 minutes?

Good night Ramsey.

I would love to be in one of my kids mind for a hour. This thought pops into my head constantly. The one immediately following it is that I would never find my way back out. I know it's not just my kids but children's thoughts have no pattern that I'm able to understand.

Case #1

We are all in the car today on the way to Joe's work. We are discussing reindeer. In the middle of this discussion Ramsey asks, "Do you stand up on a unicycle?"

Where the hell did that come from? The previous conversation continued after a brief explanation to her question.

Case #2

We are again in the car driving to pick up hamster food. (Anyone who has read my blog before may possibly be thinking, 'Hmm, she's never mentioned a hamster.' Yah, Isaac had $20. Isaac now has a hamster named Comet.) Anyway, we're in the car talking about what hamsters eat when Isaac informs me that, "Leeches live everywhere. That includes Santee."

Ok. I've never seen one of these legendary leeches. Are they in our toilets? According to Isaac they can breathe under water but only on land for 11 minutes. I love when he pulls facts like that out of no where.

So, while I would love to ride their train of thought to see how it gets from A to Q, I'm not sure I'd survive the trip.

Won again

It's crossed my mind to ditch my blog all together since I'm such a lousy poster. Instead I may try to change the focus, it seems to have done that anyway, and not have as much food.

In that vein....

I won a contest over at The Savvy Source a copy of Mask Parade. I'm excited. I'm sure the kids will love. They love to pretend to be things.

I hope to have new and interesting things to post about soon.
