Friday Night Leftovers

Me:  Hailey, please feed the dog.
H:  Okay!
(a few minutes later)
H:  I did it!  I put da food in with da water so Brie could eat and drink at da same time!
Me:  What the...okay, thanks!

She was so damn proud of herself, I couldn't let her think that was a total fuck-up.


Teacher:  Mrs. T, you need to come get Matt.  He threw up and looks as white as a ghost.  I've never seen him like this before.
Me:  Okay, I'll be right there.

Go get him, get Hailey out of her Valentine's Day party, go home and try to get him to relax.

60 minutes later...

M:  Mom, I'm ready to go back to school now.  I'm better.
Me:  No, you need to rest.
M:  Mo-om...I'm better.  I want candy!
Me:  No candy for you.

He bounced around the house for the rest of the day.  He was totally ready for school the today, but I had to heed the 24 hour rule and he stayed with me instead.  He was a peach while I got my nails done!

I hate sicks that aren't really sicks, but make you do things that regular sicks do anyway.

I'm not complaining b/c real sicks suck big time, but fake sicks come with all of the inconvenience of a real sick and maybe they shouldn't!  Maybe it is possible that this kid wound himself up so much that he made himself puke.  It's happened before!


 H:  I want to eat all of my candy.
Me:  Well, we're not going to be doing that.  As a matter of fact, you're going to be very caring to your brother b/c he's sick.
H:  Hmmm...okay, so I can eat all of his candy too?

Oh geez...


 Other than that, two birthday parties this weekend.  

We are nearing the end of our tae kwon do careers (even though M told me today that he doesn't want to and he loves TKD).  

Swim lessons went GREAT this week!  

We were out on our bikes this afternoon after a nice 2-hour delay from snow yesterday.  We also went in the backyard and ate snow...a popular choice of activity amongst 4 year olds!   

I made my awesome crab cakes from the other day and while they tasted awesome, mine fell apart.  I think it was b/c the stupid ceramic thing wasn't on the burner correctly and I didn't use a nonstick pan...duh.

Husband did a great job with V-day.  He really thought about his choices and included the Crazies.  Can't beat that with a bat!

Did I mention that this Spring Husband will be coaching t-ball (which the Crazies can't participate in b/c of their late bdays), Hailey will be taking softball, and Matt will be in lacrosse?  Yes, I'm a lunatic.  They're all only a clinic level thing, but still 3 activities for 4 people...I'm going to have to get one of those pathetic signs that say "Mom's Taxi."*  God, I hate those.  

My lunch...leftovers from last night.  Crab cake, cauliflower mash, and roasted asparagus.  Pretty damn awesome.

Love this stuff.  Can't stop eating it!  Thank God there are two levels!!
I just love these.  I already had the Newport one from Sister, but Hailey chose the birthstone, Matt chose the anchor, and Husband chose the NY Yankees (surprised me from a Phillies fan)!  Love them, but they don't allow me to sneak up on the Crazies as well as I could with a naked wrist!

*  Disclaimer:  I will never have one of those signs on my car.

I think Danifred is still doing Friday Night Leftovers, so give her a shout!
