Little Ditties

The other night, I was trying to have a conversation with Husband...I also think I was trying to get out of the house for some reason, but whatever.  As I'm talking with him and gathering my things to leave, I have a little boy following me around, slapping my ass, singing the following little dittie:

Chubby Cheeks!
Chubby Little Butt Cheeks!!

Where does he come from?

He was cracking up though, so I let him do it.  I'm a sucker for a happy boy.


I had to wait for a delivery on Monday, so I put out an "all call" to my friends to drop their kids off at my house if they had things they needed to get done.  I had to be there anyway, so why not help out my friends.  Only one took me up on it and dropped her kids off.  Let's face it, some days a playdate is easier than actually entertaining my children for the entire day!

Anyway, we went for a walk and came back to get the soccer balls so we could play in the backyard.  As we were putting our shoes back on, one of the little darlings noticed a GIGANTIC spider near the front door and started screaming "SPIDER!!!  KILL IT!!!  WE NEED TO KILL IT!!!"

Now, I'm not one of those people who are horrifically afraid of spiders, but I'm also not one of those people who are going to put it on a piece of paper and carry it outside.  I look around to see who could possibly kill this gross looking creature and realize that everyone else in the house was 35 years younger than I was and it was completely my responsibility.

I had to buck up and take the step...the spider killing step.

They all screamed "EWWWWWW!!!" while I calmly walked to the kitchen to get 5,293,923 paper towels with which to clean the carcass up.

The mark of a true adult...when she is the spider killer.


If I hear "I wanna get dat" one more time, I'm going to scream!!!



All the time!

They "wanna get dat."  It's driving me nuts.
