More Fragmented Thoughts


I totally love this fabulous excuse to be completely random.

Mommy's Idea



Should I be worried that Bear ends up sleeping in his closet every night? He takes his pillow and blankets...and leaves the doors open. It is a big closet...

****

What I get for laughing the first time Bear said something inappropriate: a child who thinks it's funny to say "Take a look at my butt. See?" and pull down his pants, while grinning at you over his shoulder.

****

I was actually clapping and cheering at the tv last night when Survivor was on. Like I think they can hear me.

****

I don't know how many times I said, "Oooh, I love Russell!" last night. Hubs just shook his head at me and went down to the mancave to watch something else.

****

Do you know what Supah's Island is? I'm playing! Watch for the Survivor Fantasy Game, round 1. Should be up soon. I'm Cirie in that game. Someone stole Russell from me. Okay, just by getting a higher number in the draw than me. Take a look at the sponsors over on the sidebar: I better win something.

****

I've seen SO many "adult" toy reviews and giveaways lately. Maybe it's the universe telling me to stop being so repressed and go get a toy. I'll know that is what it's trying to tell me if I actually win one of those giveaways.

****

I'm thrilled that Bear's teacher is not coming back to teach his class this year. She is the director of the preschool and Bear only had her for two days and then she went out sick. So, he got used to the new teacher and has had her for over 2 months now. The director said that she watched the teacher and Bear together and said that they have such a connection that she doesn't want to break them up. So, the days that Bear is at school, the "sub" will have the class for the rest of the year. I could have kissed her for that.

****

Um, why did I talk about sex toys and then about preschool? What is wrong with me and why am I too lazy to reorder my fragments?

****


Next year, there will be a few hours every week when all of my boys will be in school at the same time. Hubs thinks I will be able to get a ton done around the house. I think I'll go hang out at Panera with my laptop, reading blogs...like I did this morning. It was so peaceful. And chai tea lattes are awesome. I'll still have a messy house, but I'll be much calmer.

****

If I hit 300 followers today, I might pee my pants with excitement.

****

After having 3 kids, especially with ginormous heads, it doesn't take much to make me pee my pants.

****


Tried again to make friends. Planned an event for the moms' group. And pretty much got slapped in the face AGAIN. Why do I try? MOTHERBITCHES.

****

You know you love my word. Say it, it's fun. MOTHERBITCHES. You can even borrow my word, like my friend Stepping on Cheerios did...um, as long as you give me credit, like she did, when she described her horrible motherbitch experience. ;)

****

I think I'm almost done playing around with my blog layout. Thanks so much to Elizabeth and Supah for helping me out! And for not telling me to shut up when I sent you a billion emails and questions.

****


A friend of mine was going to make my header and button, but you know, I wasn't paying her because I am CHEAP and she has a life, so I had to go with what I could make. I'm thinking she might take pity on my poor skills and make me something better.

****

Any of my fellow Supah's Island Survivors: please don't vote me off. I love you all. Really. Even if I don't like the character you are playing. I love you as a person. Keep me around. At least let me win something before voting me out.

****

Everyone who commented on my pic from Wednesday, where I was telling you how happy I was that I grew out of my college awkward phase and showed you the reunion pic- the reunion pic was from this fall. So, the comments about how I wasn't that bad in college- ouch, blow to my ego.

****

BFF, whom I have known for holy crap almost 30 years, just started her own blog. Today is her very first post. Please go show her some comment and follow love. In My Own Little Corner

Totally agree about the sex toys. I've pretty much entered all the giveaways. :) I didn't do one of laundry this week because I was to busy reading blogs. At least I did the dishes. :) We just moved and I'm having a hard time making friends. Motherbitches is a good word!

You know I never noticed that I wasn't actually following you. I am now. I have done my part and put you at 295. I hope you make it to 300. It would be wicked exciting.

as for the toy thing. You should totally do it and then blog about it. You know like a product review. I would laugh so hard.

Oh and I wouldn't worry so much about posting about sex toys and then preschool. We're moms. This is our lives. We wouldn't be moms without sex and just because we're moms doesn't mean we have to stop having sex.

I have now used the word sex 3 times and referenced sex toys twice. My mother would be mortified.

The universe is telling you to buy toys. If you want a site with some nice tutorial-type descriptions Google The Blowfish Catalog. They also deliver their seasonal catalogs in innocent-looking white envelopes and packages come in unmarked boxes.

I also have to echo the previous commenter - "We wouldn't be moms without sex and just because we're moms doesn't mean we have to stop having sex."

Unfortunately I'm not willing to blog about my sex life because my co-workers read my blog.

Oh yeah- and I think you totally need to find a new playgroup. I've found a great group of mommy friends through a local mom website. not sure if there is a branch in your city or not or if it's active or not. MomsLikeMe.com Can take some time to find the right group... but I've made some real friends. You seriously need to just dump the MB's.

Stopping in by way of Friday Fragments.

I don't blame the hubster for heading to the man cave either. I don't watch Survivor.

I love that Bear sleeps in the closet. Just another phase. Now, if he's till doing that at 16, then we have a problem.

So I do have a question for ya. How did you wind up making your own blog button? I've been wanting to do that myself.

I <3 chai tea lattes. And my younger girl started preschool this past year, so I get SIX WHOLE HOURS to myself. It goes by fast. Since she goes 2 days, usually one day I do a bunch around the house, and the other I do whatever the crap I want to. :-) Even if that's watching a couple 90210 episodes (THE ORIGINAL). ;-)

Blogger I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I have my babies sleep in my master bathroom closet on purpose! We have a huge closet with sliding glass doors, so each baby as it comes spends a few years in a crib in there. It keeps the baby in our suite and doesn't wake up the whole house. Plus, why does a baby need a whole room? Not like I have one!

I hate motherbitches too. Guys are so much more simple. I don't even try.

Mmmmm...I wish I were hanging out at Panera right now with a crossword puzzle and a chai tea.

Love your Friday Fragments. It's totally how I feel on many days. If I every make any friends in my new town and they turn out to be motherbitches, I'll totally credit you in my rantings.

Your Friday Fragments are the bestestest evah.

And even in real life when I use Motherbitch in a sentence I give you credit. I goes a little like this....blah blah blah and OMG she was such a TOTAL Motherbith - that's Shell's word not mine bytheway - ........

People usually look at me a little funny but then they always look at me like that so its nothing new.

I'm off to visit your BFF.

Holy crap, where do I start, haha!

First--LOVE Russell. My fave Survivor member ever. So I love how you love him, too.

Motherbitches!! My God. They all need to lighten up a little!!

So going to visit your friend's blog--can't wait!!

I thought your pic was gorgeous--and I could totally tell it was from a reunion--if anyone looked that good in college I'd throw up and secretly be mad, lol!

That's probably the sweetest thing I've ever heard about a director at preschool. Amazing and it totally made me smile.

And you never had toys before?! Wth. Order something. Now.

That wasn't supposed to sound bitchy--I was just trying to be bossy. And fun. :)

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. We would definitely be the loud, laughing until we cry friends. The ones people would be jealous of :)
