BLOG that!

Christmas Eve Day:

J: Mom, since I can't find my Christmas stocking this year I'll just use this Winnie the Pooh one.

[first, i didn't know his was missing :( ,
second, sadly, and worse,
i didn't know he was longing for it...]

Me: We will go right up to the attic and find it in the extra Christmas decorations.

[third, i banned half the decorations this year, and my kids caught me boxing up the ones we had put out a week ago. they called me GRINCH, and yes, I have been the grinch this year. I felt all green, with a heart too small, as I SHOVED those decorations BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM.]

J: (answering my solution to go find the sock), No, that's not good. I don't think we should spend our time working on Christmas Eve.

[You would think it was Sunday, the way he said it.]

....him thinking....he continues:
WHAT, DADS WORKING TODAY! wasn't a question.
It was a statement of pure disgust.

He is so hilarious.

Christmas Eve Day, take two:

The kids have been getting Santa Helper gifts for the 12 days of Christmas. Today was their 11th gift. As they brought it in the house they were all talking about how COLD the package feels.

ME: There is no place as cold as the North Pole.
..well, except maybe my grinch heart, I didn't say that
just thought it!

J (again, and speaking very professor like): Except for Antarctica, it's pretty certain that it is colder there,
in fact,
scientifically it's probability
much more colder.

BLOG THAT! (he, he, i did, and i got to it before Cece!)

Merry Christmas Everyone!
...hope your holidays are filled with love and peace,
and moments that will become memories to last...

...and a few moments that are memories worth BLOGGING. ♥

sounds wonderful. Winnie the Pooh is not a bad stocking. It's good the kids know how to make due. It's not sad, it's an important lesson that many children don't lovingly get.

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
