My girls have both been sick and running fevers.
Maggie must be feeling better. She spent most of her morning calling Jane "butt crack" and laughing. Jane has spent most of the time crying about the fact that her sister is calling her "butt crack".
So of course Mags has been given hot pepper and time outs. None of it worked. She was still able to slip in soft whispers of "butt crack" to make Jane break into tears all over again. She thinks that she is hilarious.
Is she?

She's Cute But Not Bright

Of course the title refers to the dog and not my perfectly intelligent children. We got her about two weeks ago. Free, just how I like them. Lucky for us a great young man and his girlfriend broke up. Neither of them can have the dog at their respective homes so we got her. She wets outside but poops in my house. I don't like that part. She is great with the kids as they drag her everywhere.

Week at a Glance

Sure she was miserable but she did it to herself. The old lean back in the chair trick. Then fell and split her chin. Lucky for us Mr. Shaun was over and helped take care of her and super glue her back together. (that might make it seem like he is a dr. but no, just a capable friend)

Jane's sad, sad face.

Then I tried to use Picasa for the first time. You'll see more of these in the future but they won't necessarily get better. ha

News Flash

Mom and Charlie
When you have a foul mouth eventually it appears that your children will get used to it. I was cleaning the kitchen when the girls were upstairs yelling. I had been up and down the stairs about seven times in five minutes. Their fighting was really getting on my nerves. I wasn't getting any cleaning accomplished and Charlie was doing his homework at the kitchen table as he watched me come and go.
A fight broke out again and I dropped the mop and headed up the stairs while muttering "oh my hell" and that's when Charlie said "no kidding."

I was holding Jane in my arms while we waited in the school office for Charlie. There is a very nice lady that works in the office that we were talking to a bit. She was sitting about four feet away when Jane looked at me and said, "We won't tell her she's fat right Mom? Because that would hurt her feelings." And that is when I slowly turned and walked out of the office.

In our dinner prayer..."and help us to not fight or hit or push or punch or kick or pinch or bite or say dummy or say stupid or say idiot or say" etc.....

When Mags gets frustrated she says "you makin' me cazy". I get told this all of the time. I found it especially enjoyable when her Dad asked her to sit down in the middle of Sacrament Meeting and she belted out "You makin' me cazy Daddy, you make me so cazy".

me eedor: translated into me either: which is again translated into me too.

Here are some examples; Jane might say, " I really love that doll" to which Mags would reply in a deep voice, "me eedor". Charlie might say "Can I come?" then Maggie will chime in "Can I come eedor?"

Happy New Year

We rang in the new year at 7:45. Then watched a movie and went to bed. Perfect way to start the new year. I tried to talk to everyone at dinner about goals and resolutions but it fell upon deaf ears. Maybe next year.
