Taking care of kids
My own family will tell you, I dont deal well with crowds, particularly crowds and heat. This may come as a little bit of a shock as I tend to head to lots of places full of crowds and heat, Tokyo, Rome, Bangkok, etc. BUT, I am not I am expected to talk to talk … Continue reading
Ok so it may not be funny t shirts but this is freaky just the same (and I wonder what my ESL in Asia friends do besides sending around these great videos. Tell me again why I left? Oh yeah, because though staff room time rocks, 8 hours straight of dancing monkey for children does … Continue reading
Tonight a friend of Patrick’s came over for a BBQ. Only it was raining horribly and so we went for Pasta. (Yes for whatever reason we tend to have people over for food on Tuesdays, who knows don’t ask). Afterwards he asked who the picture of the most adorable brilliant baby on my shelf was, … Continue reading
The past week I have spent my mornings teaching kids camps and my afternoons with my privates. 12 hour days and my kids camps are a group that range in age from 6 to 13. Surprisingly this was not as terrifying as I had thought it would be. Though it means a certain amount of … Continue reading
So in a case of tempt the universe and the universe gladly bats at you, I am home sick today. I was always planning on being home sick today. Stef needed a baby sitter from 11 to 2, I leave my pumpkin butt for who knows how long on Thursday, I hate my job, it … Continue reading
I never understood why people with babies felt the need to torture those of us without offspring with tales of their wonderkind. It use to be yes your baby is cute, but then all babies are cute. And ohh wow your child just said mom, but come off it, until they can start debating the … Continue reading
OMG, I have to share that. Skye just stole my alarm clock and ran for it. Only she ran straight into the wall and knocked herself flat on her back. No obstacles other than that wall growing closer and closer. I shouldn’t be laughing like this.
I do sometimes hug her and squeeze her to make her mad just so that she will lunge at my face in an attempt to gnaw me to death.
I am such a dork. But if your really curious as to where the raccoon eyes come from, it comes from being super auntie. Sometimes being a super auntie also means getting in trouble as well. As in this most awesome shot!! I couldnt help it, it was the best pic ever. Hockey baby!! and … Continue reading
Waking up at 8 am, after going to bed at 3 am, to Skye shrieking and Micheal playing video games at the foot of my bed. I may quit my job tomorrow. I am in that kind of foul, no room for idiocy mood.
Today is proving to be quite productive! I FINALLY finished my first blog entry for the Young Germany blog. Not that it was a brilliant piece of writing worthy of the time it took to write it. Rather it is more like I am an idiot. After I was accepted I wasn’t quite sure … Continue reading
Skye for some reason loves to pull my old socks out of the hamper and run through the room waving them above her head shrieking. Last night it was a pair of my underwear. Gheeee child.
Michael has his hands full. Promiscuous Girl is Skye’s fav song. She hears it and she throws her hands up and she literately wiggles her butt. Everything else she just bops too. Party girl in the house.
Some have been inquiring as to life with my brother. I have to admit it, I missed him more than I thought. Given that a mere few years ago I could not pass him without trying to damage one of his vital organs, this is more than a giant step forward. The boy seems to … Continue reading
It happened yesterday!!! She just up and powered over to the couch. And to shrieking mommy and auntie!!! I dont think I can ever have kids though. I love her so much. And we watched Sleepers the other night. I seesawed from the urge to cry and build a protective cocoon over her, to intense … Continue reading
Look how cute and happy bunny doll is: That is until I tried to change her diaper. I thought I was doing her a favor. Auntie Sherrie doing her auntie duties. From gurgling baby to growling monster. Her back arched, she grew fangs, and in Monty Python ooo what a cute little bunny style, she … Continue reading
My computer is still going insane at random intervals. So sorry if I am not keeping up on my emails. More importantly however I gained knowledge on valentines day that may end my relationship. I have made a promise. A promise to remain true until I see Patrick again and we can do it together. … Continue reading
Loud. She is beyond beautiful. So much so I want to bite her cute little nose. And I guess there is the catch. Skye is the happiest baby in the world. You cant walk past her without giant smiles and a high pitched “hi” directed at you. Until you try to touch her face. In … Continue reading
