A lesson on bugs.

I love car rides with Tink. I learn all sorts of interesting things that are going on in her life at school. Today it was a lesson on bugs.

"Mom, I know why some bugs are crunchy and some are soft. The crunchy ones have an exoskeleton. Sometimes during bean bag share time Bracie in my class talks about bugs too, they are his favorite things. My favorite things are flying, rainbow colored unicorns and pink sparkles. They are awesome!"

I bet they are awesome.

I catch myself referring to the new baby by the girl name we have picked out ALL the time. I have to say, if it is a boy I will be shocked.

Car conversation

On the way to school this morning:

"Mama, Do I have a pretty voice when I sing?"

"You sure do sweetie."

"It's a secret, no one knows but you and Daddy. I only sing when I'm with you."

I have to say I was a bit shocked, Tink NEVER stops singing and making up new songs when we are together. Somehow I just figured she sings when she is at school or at my mom's too.

Off to a great start!

Much to my surprise I am off to a great start this morning.

As I climbed out of bed Hubbs jumped up and said he needed the shower first. I thought this would surely ruin any chances of getting out of the house on time. Somehow it did not. In fact it boosted my morning into overdrive.

Here's my list of things accomplished this morning:

Load of laundry into the dryer and dried before I left the house.

Load of laundry into washer to be turned on when I get home later.

Shower and ready for work.

Tink up and ready for school, without any clothing or hair issues.

Breakfast made for Tink and myself and eaten.

Lunches packed for Tink and myself.

Dinner in the crock pot and turned on, just need to make mashed potatoes later to go with it.

Dogs fed and taken out to potty.

Tink to school on time.

At work on time.

I am totally impressed with myself!

As of tomorrow I will be 15 weeks preggo. I am finally getting some energy back and the morning sickness is all but gone. Thank you God!! Hopefully I keep feeling good and can have more mornings like this.

So after work I am off to get Tink from school then home to finish up dinner for when Hubbs gets there so we can eat and get Tink to her soccer game at 6.

Little kiss up!

Tink (from the bathroom): Momma, I need to tell you something I've never told you before!

Me: I'm not coming in there to wipe your tushie, you are a big girl and know how to do that.

Tink: NOOO! It's really important! You're really beautiful momma. Now will you wipe my butusky?

Me: Hmm, I'm onto you.

Tink erupted in giggles: You are still beautiful.

Another one bites the dust.

So lately I have been on a roll. It seems like I am pissing someone off daily around here.

This time it's my mom, my brother and my SIL over a 4-wheeler.

Let me give the back story on the 4-wheeler. It is a battery powered plastic toy, like the barbie jeep type. It belonged to my parent's neighbor's grandkid. When the little girl out grew it she brought it to my parent's house and said she wanted to give it to the kids, meaning Tink and my nephews. The 4-wheeler sat on the front porch for over a year. When we moved next door to my parents Tink started riding the 4-wheeler and it eventually migrated to our shed to be kept charged. Anytime my nephews wanted to ride it they did. Last summer the battery quit working properly and Tink decided to use $65.00 of her birthday money to buy a new battery.

Last week my SIL called my mom and said she wanted the 4-wheeler at her house for my nephews, since it was theirs to begin with. Not one to argue I said that was fine, but they needed to either leave the battery and buy a new one or pay Tink $50.00 for that one. They agreed to this and picked it up on Sunday while I was not home.

After they got the toy home my SIL called and told my mom that she would give $35.00 since the battery was used. I did not feel this was right and called her back to tell her so. No one would answer my calls, so I left a message.

This ticked my mom off. She is EXTREMELY mad that I had the nerve to call my SIL and tell her she was being unfair to Tink and needed to pay the $50.00 or return the battery to me. (It's my mom's goal in life to kiss my SIL's ass to make sure she likes my mom.)

I have since seen my SIL twice at soccer and she has avoided me and refused to even look at me. This morning I get a phone call from my SIL. She was yelling about me talking to everyone on the soccer team about her and how our problems are none of their business. I did sit and talk to other mom's at soccer, but my SIL was not the topic of conversation. I'm thinking she has a guilty conscience. I told her as much and proceeded to tell her she could kiss my ass.

Wait till my mom finds out I told my SIL that! She's REALLY gonna flip!
