Thankyouverymuch and Be Prepared for the Dance-off

The Daily Dribbles

It's Free Therapy Day!! That's right, it's Thursday, which means it's Thank You Very Much day. The way it works is that you take out all your frustrations on people/things that peeved you off during the week and thank them in a very sarcastic way, for being who or what they are/doing what they did. I know everyone can use some free therapy, so go ahead and type yours out, grab Kmama's button, and then link up over at The Daily Dribbles so that we can all share in each other's therapy.

To my mommies group, for once again being motherbitches and not being excited about my idea of having a Just Dance party. And here I was, trying to make friends again. Thankyouverymuch.

Btw, in case you missed it, the Just Dance video is in yesterday's post. Buy the game or rent it from redbox: a Just Dance bloggy dance-off contest is coming soon! If I can't have my dance party at my house, we'll have it in bloggyland! Start practicing! ♥ Thank you very much! ♥

To Old Navy, for getting my hopes up about fantastic sales, since all clearance stuff was an additional 50% off and I had a $50 off $100 coupon to spend: thankyouverymuch for having about 5 things on the racks that were for my size. I was stuck buying things from you that weren't on sale.

But, ♥ Thank you very much ♥ to The Mommyologist for the Old Navy coupon. I still got some great things! You could have had one of those fabulous coupons, too: you should really follow me on twitter and then you'd have been in the know.

To my little baby Cub, for refusing to stay in your crib or your pack n play because you can climb like a freaking monkey; for causing those glorious hours of naptime to dwindle and for making that super-easy bedtime become a battle: you are only 20 months old. No more climbing. Thankyouverymuch.

To Bear, for deciding that 5 AM is a perfectly acceptable time for you to start your day now: no matter when I send you to bed. Even though it's still pitch black outside. And for doing things like eating ice cream for breakfast if I don't go upstairs with you right away. Really, kid, I have enough problems on the other side of the night with your brother. Enough already. Thankyouverymuch.

♥ Thank you very much ♥ to Monkey for still going to bed easily and not being a morning person.

To Bear's previous early intervention "specialist": I really wish you could have seen the look on his new specialist down here's face when I told her what your diagnosis was. If I'd had a camera, I would have snapped her pic so that it could go in the dictionary right beside the entry for a "WTF face." For all the needless stress and worry you caused me, thankyouverymuch.

To Hubs, for calling to "ask" me if it was okay for him to go to the Carolina basketball game the other day and then saying,"so, you don't have to make dinner tonight": well, thankyouverymuch since I already had dinner cooking in the crockpot and almost done by that point and thankyouverymuch for thinking that you not being here means that they boys and I don't need to eat. Your kids? Your wife? Have you forgotten how cranky we all get if we don't eat?

I have my very first giveaway, coming tomorrow! Please come back and enter! ♥ Thank you very much!

Aw man, I follow you on twitter but I haven't been tweeting this last week! I've been dying to get my hands on one of those Old Navy coupons! Even if sometimes the selection is hit or miss in the clearance section (my preferred section).

I'm right there with you on the no sleep factor too. The youngest is still up during the night and the older ones get up butt ass early in the morning. Don't they know that no sleep = short tempered mommy?

Oh I fell in love with Old navy over Christmas.. it is not a good thign for me to enter that store, even worse for my mom. I have a 17 yr old who had sleep issues due to bipolarism, thankfully he is on meds now that help him sleep...

I am getting Just Dance as our family present for Valentine's Day. My students RAVE about it, I can't wait to try it!

Old Navy's big sale was really hit or miss. I made out REALLY great in one store about an hour away from me. They had piles and piles and racks and racks. When I went to the other Old Navy north of us, there was NOTHING. Disappointing!

Thanks for stopping by! It's nice to hear someone else wants to switch careers from teaching. I usually feel guilty saying that. It really does take a toll on you. Even with all the breaks. I also have a 20 month old. lol

So jealous that you have an Old Navy! The closest one to me is 2 1/2 hours away. =(

Oh my... I feel like I hijacked someone's blog and wrote everything under your name. How are you living MY LIFE? ha ha

I feel for ya. Sleeptime stuff is no fun, and my hubs knows not to get in the way of a grumpy hungry wife :)

OMG!! My husband does the same thing when he wants to go out in the evening...he'll call tell me not to worry about cooking dinner. He thinks he's making my life easier but I still have FOUR kids that need to eat.

My kids wake up super early too. If we lived on a farm and had a rooster, they would have to wake him up to let him know it was time to do his cock-a-doodle do thing with the rising sun.

Now you are going to thank ME very much for showing you this: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Tots-In-Mind-Cozy-Crib-II-Tent-Child-Safety-Net_W0QQitemZ390148024863QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item5ad6a26a1f

That's right, it's the Cozy Crib Tent baby! I got this for my 22 month old, slapped it on the crib and said "put that in your bottle and suck on it!" and then laughed evilly. They cannNOT get out of this but its perfectly safe. After she learned she couldn't get out she woudl just go to sleep.

January 28, 2010 at 1:48 PM  
Blogger ilovebabyquilts said...

Forgot to add, they don't make it anymore so ebay is your only avenue. It's totally worth the money, you can sleep easily at night and not battle over bedtime.

Don't you just love how those darn hubby's can be? My hubby thinks if he's not hungry neither is anyone else. He's so wrong!

I know what you mean about the climbing too! My 20 month old is giving me a real workout when all I want to do is lay around!

See if I posted a pic of me dancing you all would be putting me on the audition tapes for Dance your A** off ... LOL

Cub is already climbing out? I swear I won the lottery in that respect. My kids climb in, not out!! They make crib tents...have you seen those? They were a life saver for a friend of mine.

Thanks for linking up!!

20 month olds are trouble. Luckily mine hasn't figured out how to climb out of her bed yet. She does sit there and scream when she wants out though. Ugh! Good luck with that!

*Tears* I went to numerous Redboxes today and none of them are offering video games of any sort.
I think I will just have to break down and buy it because I really want to play along with the bloggy dance party!

Maybe I could bring my wii down when you and Mommyologist come for bloggy boot camp and we'll hook it up in your hotel room!

LOL! That would be a hoot!

Those motherbitches! They are never any fun!!

I would have jumped, cheered, celebrated at the genius idea of a Just Dance dance-off. Seriously--who could resist that?!

And I cracked up about your husband--why do men do that?! Isabella, Madelyn and I are so freaking grouchy with no food. Watch out.

And Old Navy always hypes the sales and they never offer anything in my size. It's always cleared out or way picked through. But yay for shopping!

I wish you had a camera too of the new specialist's face. I love it when my hubby is out of town. We do Ramen noddles, cereal, cheese stix, nothing.

My Jonathan didn't climb out of his crib or over baby gates until after his baby sister came along and taught him how. She was 18 months, he was three and a half years old.

Can't wait for high school when she arrives two years later and teaches him about skipping class.
