At 15....

Fall Out Boy came on the radio and all I could do was laugh at myself. Going through my pop punk rock rebel phase at the time was awesome. I wore too much eyeliner, too many bracelets and too many hoodies. Life was happy but sad and dreams were huge. I dated drummers and wrote poems.

Yes you may now laugh....

Oooo Superman....

So as I am putting laundry away I notice Superman's panty drawer is slowly growing. As a panty hoarder myself I can only hope that my obsession is rubbing off on him. He will give me the side eye and probably get a little angry because I am discussing undergarments over the interwebs again but eh I can handle him, after all I am just very proud and slightly braggy! And his panty drawer is only folded because I did it, usually he is my neat freak everything folded and in perfect order man but nope! Unfolded drawers! Eeeekkk! My unorganized and fly off the handle self is joyous as he becomes a little more unorganized with me :-)

Please do not place me in hoarder status like the crazies on tv with 9000 toasters and newspapers from 20 years ago. As much as Superman seems to think, I just have a problem of throwing things (mostly unimportant papers) in a corner until it finally drives me nuts and I go through them, and mind you the stack never gets more than a couple weeks old. No biggy. Now panties I do tend to buy a lot of for no apparent reason........ Do they have a 12 step program for that? Wait, nevermind, I don't want to stop.

It really is the little things in a relationship that make ya happy,

Do you tweet?

What is with this little blue bird? Or instagram with all the fuzzy pictures? Call me crazy but I haven't been able to get into them.

I created a Twitter account but lost interest in a few minutes because I'm really not concerned about how many smoothies Selena Gomez drinks a day or if Peyton Manning got new shoes.

As far as Instagram goes, well it's way ahead of me. Haven't we spent millions on these phones that can take crisp, clear gorgeous pictures?  Why ruin that by making it foggy? Do you become a photographer that way? Please someone enlighten me.

That is all,


Ooooo Monday....

E hates Superman being away just as much as I do, so she went to bed tonight with his blanket and is using a blender bottle as a water cup. She also made a little Army brat friend at school, so cute because they were comparing their men :-)

It's just past 8 and I'm ready for bed. Snoozes sound amazing.

I need to start running again, so it's either wait for Superman or find a jogging stroller and push an almost 5 year old around.....ugh.

It's only monday and I'm ready for the week to be over. That probably means I'm in for the long haul. Crossing fingers it goes by fast.

I am the winner! Well kinda...

Greatest daughter in law ever here! I just magically called on Superman's mother's birthday. I knew it was close to my littlest brother's birthday so I was really calling to ask :-) I am magical, now she knows that I will be late on her card, but last year things were a little different on her birthday so this is my first real one and I believe I get a free pass.

Yesterday I did get somebodies birthday right. Kane turns 17 on the 19th. He's the baby and now he's almost all grown up, he's taller than me, has had a steady girlfriend for over a year now and has a job and truck and all that teenage boy jazz. It makes me proud but he's a pretty darn good guy, but sad because he will always be the little 3lb thing laying in the incubator at the hospital to me. So in his big boy card I sent him some moola, you know your little brother is grown up when you have to write "P.S. This is NOT beer money" after the "Love you".

I am now off to drink some Captain while watching the cat attack a spot on the wall and watch a sports movie.

Happy weekend!

So what do I do?

I have ranted and raved about helicopter parents before but something was brought up the other night at a preschool meeting for E that just made me shake my head and want to throw something.

Preschool is prekindergarten, your kids are supposed to get used to hand raising, quiet working, independence and structure. The teachers are there to make sure that your child knows what they need to know before they head onto the big school of elementary. While in the meeting we were given a rough schedule of their day to day and that there would be a couple field trips scheduled for the spring. Helicopter parent of the year was appalled that while learning about family pets a trip to Petsmart might happened so that the kids can learn about what pet might be a fit for their family. Why? Well because what if while on this field trip somebody kidnapped her kid? WTmF seriously lady? Go along with as a chaperon and hold your child's hand the whole time, or trust the teachers when they say that they will take extra teachers along if they cannot get the proper amount of parent volunteers. Heck maybe you better lock your child to your leg as you head off to the grocery store tonight so your child doesn't get snatched out from under you nose. I swear.

This lovely helicopter mom was also concerned that if it kept getting "cold" at 50 degrees that her child should not be outside in that kind of weather, "it is too low for any one's child to be out in". Once again she got a mouth drop and a weird look from this mom. Too cold at 50? I get that it's the south and I get that these people like their 80 degree days, but back home a snowsuit is a requirement in winter because unless it is below zero with windchill the kids go outside. People and kids survive up there every day!

Call me crazy if you agree but people need to start letting their kids be kids. We owe them the opportunity to experience life, not be saran wrapped in a bubble suit for their entire life because something might just happen to them.

A night with too many cookies and the cats.
