867-5309

Firecracker has reached that age where he needs to start memorizing phone numbers and street addresses.  We started working on memorizing my phone number the other day and he wasn't getting it.  He would get the numbers mixed up or forget how to start.

After several tries I had an idea.  I remembered learning that if you learn something through song it sticks in your memory.  Using this theory, I decided to put MY phone number to the tune of 867-5309.  You know what?  Within 10 minutes Firecracker could sing my number to you!

Thank you, Tommy Tutone, for making a song with a phone number already in it so I didn't have to try and make one up on the fly!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Little Kid Dictionary 3

Sadly, my kiddos are getting so grown up that they don't say as many messed up words in their little kid language.  However, there are still a few that are still around.  I will mark F after a word if Firecracker uses it or S after a word if Sweet pea uses it. Without further ado here they are!

*Wargin( pronounced war- gin)- Orange
Usage- "I like the color wargin" (F & S)

 *Pink my toes- Paint my toes. This is more of a phrase rather than a singular word, but it was too cute not to include. (S)

*Chop stick- Lip balm
Usage: "Mommy, may I have some chop stick?"  (S, F used to say it, but he says it right now =(

* Coconuts- scattered dots 
Usage: "I like those coconuts on your dress" (S)

*Asausted- tired
Usage: "I'm so ausausted!" (F)

*The Branch- A green, mean, Dr. Seuss character
Usage: "Can we please watch the Branch who stole Christmas today?"  (S)

*Mana- A yellow fruit
Usage: "Mommy, I'd like to eat a mana, please." (S) 

*Hambaid- A band worn on the head
Usage: "Mommy and I wear hambaids to church."(S)

*Lotion- A large body of water that has waves and a sandy shore
Usage: "When I put this shell to my ear I can hear the lotion." (S) 

Have a great day!
Ms. T

The "Branch"

Recently, Sweet pea has become addicted to "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".  We watch the movie, read the book (and when we get to the parts where they sing in the movie, we have to sing the songs... which doesn't go all that well considering we don't know all the words... Yet...)  

Anyway, Sweet pea can't pronounce Grinch right.  She calls him, the Branch.  And while we're watching the movie and the "branch" starts stealing things she tells me, "Mommy, the branch doesn't please Jesus!!"  Things like that make my heart sing.  I love my munchkins so much!

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Ice Skate Sticker

The other day, Sweet pea got an ice skate sticker from some where.  She was playing with it and then said, "Mommy, look at me! I'm skating!" When I looked over she had put the sticker on the bottom of her foot and then was pretending she was ice skating across the room.  Sweet baby!  I love how their little minds work.

Have a great day!

Pink Eye

A few weeks ago, I took Firecracker and Sweet pea to the doctor's office for their yearly check ups.  The next day I got pink eye. Coincidence?  I think not.  Anyway, I steered as clear as possible away from people so that I didn't give it to anyone else.  

My niece's birthday party happened to fall on the Saturday of my self quarantine.  Unfortunately, the Hubs couldn't take the kids to the party because he had another obligation.  Thankfully though the party was at my Mom and Dad's house.  So I took the kids and quarantined myself in my parent's bedroom.  

When I came out of the room to tell someone something (yeah, I don't remember what it was or who it was addressed to... my memory is AWFUL).  My older brother, Mr. Pickles, started yelling, "Ahhh! Unclean! Unclean!"  He thinks he's hilarious...

My family took care of my munchkins for me during the party.  When it was time to go home, I got clorox wipes and wiped down every thing I had touched in my parent's room.  Then the kids and I left. 

 Needless to say, having pink eye is for the birds!  I felt like a 7 year old.  I mean it's not extremely common for adults to get pink eye.  So really this just confirms that I'm not normal! =) 

Have a great day!
Ms. T

Worst Aunt Ever

Last night was too eventful in a bad way.  Around 6:30 my pregnant SIL, Mrs. Pickles, called and asked if we could watch her kids while she and my brother went to the E.R. .  Mrs. Pickles had been stung by a scorpion and the midwife had told her to go into the E.R. and have them look at it just to be safe.

It was ironic, because earlier in the day I had told Mrs. Pickles that I wanted to have my niece, Princess, and nephew, Tank, over for a sleep over before school started back.  Now, these were not the circumstances I wished for, but it was time for a sleep over! 

I met them at the hospital and picked up Princess and Tank.  The kids played for awhile and then I told them to pick up the toys for bed time.  I was in my room when I heard a loud thud.  Never a good thing coming from a room filled with children.  Then I heard a blood curdling scream.  Mind you I was already running down to Firecracker's room to see what the problem was.  When I got into the room Tank's head was bleeding A LOT!  He was on the top bunk, one of the kids turned the ceiling fan on and one of the blades caught him.  And the World's Worst Aunt Award goes to.... Ms. T!!  Thank you, thank you, I'd like to thank all the little people that get injured around me for the chance to receive this embarrassing award. (please read this with extreme sarcasm)

Another bit of irony for you, Mrs. Pickles texted me that they were leaving the hospital just as I was about to call her.  20 minutes later Tank was calm and watching The Incredibles on the Hub's phone while Mr. and Mrs. Pickles got the kid's stuff together and got ready to leave.  By the time they were ready to leave Tank said, "I'm not bleeding does that me we can sleep here?"  HA!  Talk about resilient!  I promised Tank that we would have a sleep over soon.

At least the fact that Tank still wanted to stay at my house proves he still loves me.... Or maybe he just loves the Hubs, Firecracker and Sweet pea...

Have a great day!
Ms. T  

P.s. The Hubs has removed all the blades off the ceiling fan in Firecracker's room to prevent this from happening again.  So pretty much it's just a really ugly light fixture, but no one should end up with a head wound again!  That's a big ol' plus!!

Anniversary Celebration Weekend

I had told you that June 29th was our anniversary.  Well, my wonderful parents watched the munchkins overnight for us this last weekend so we could have some time to ourselves.  It wasn't a typical "get away", but we had a great time nonetheless.

Friday morning, we dropped off the kids with my parents and headed to IKEA.  I'd been wanting to go for awhile, and the Hubs wanted to make me happy ;).  He's such a smart man!  Plus he likes their hot dogs...  After IKEA we went to Outback for an early dinner.   Mmmmm it was good!  Then we headed home to watch a movie. 

Saturday, the Hubs and I got up and went to the gun range!  I'd say that we did it, because he likes that stuff, but I wanted to go just as much as he did. =)  We did our shooting, and then looked at some guns.  Did you know that they now make guns that are PINK?!  Cray-Cray!  I thought about buying one, I'm not gonna lie.  Then we went to get the munchkins.  

Like I said, not a typical "get away", but it was fun for us.  It was great to have some time to reconnect.  Every couple should take some time to themselves every once in awhile.

Have a great day!
Ms. T
