Yeah. I have some confessions I'm going to confess to you, o blog world.
#1) I my first confession I mentioned to you in Adie's 3 year post. Yes, I have been heating up my now 3 year old's milk for over 2 years. The Doctor said there was nothing wrong with it but seriously.. the last 2 years at Bible Memory Camp our cabin didn't have a microwave so I had to treck up the hill to the kitchen every day at 6:30am to heat up my then 2-year old's milk. So how is the breaking of "hot milk" going? Adie hasn't drank milk in 9 days. =/ She's showing me... My daughter is going to have osteoporosis in spite of me.
#2) Adie has a puzzle of the USA map. Um, I SUCK at it! Who knows where the Dakota's are unless you LIVE in the Dakota's, seriously!? So her puzzle is not only teaching her the map of the US but it's teaching her college educated mother as well.
#3) On that note.. a few years ago I was so tired of not knowing where they meant when the New England Patriots played.. finally asked Darin where they were and who'da guessed it! Adie's puzzle has all those states lumped together and conveniently labeled "New England" so they generational curse of not knowing where New England is will be broken. Just don't ask me how many and which states are considered "New England" because Adie's map doesn't differentiate that. Darin is SO gunna have to help the girls with homework when they bring it home from school... if they want help with their make-up, want to learn how to shoot on manual or want me to help them scrapbook I got it.
#4) I've come to the conclusion we need DVR. You ask if I want to record LOST and replay it to catch all the things we missed the first time around?
To watch "So you think we can dance" this summer because my hubby hates to watch it with me?
I want to DVR to record Dateline and 48 Hours Mystery.
I am an old fart in that I LOVE to watch Dateline and 48 Hours Mystery. Darin has asked me if it's because I'm taking note on how to take him out one day because seriously, the spouse is always the killer. BUT last weekend I invested 1 hour and 50 minutes of my life to Dateline on Friday night about some chick who murdered 2 of her husbands. And then I fell asleep with 10 minutes left. I have NO CLUE if she was convicted! Ah. Then I watched 48 hours mystery on Saturday night and some chick sliced up her husband and again, I fell asleep with 10 minutes left. So I have no clue if it was self defense, yo. So if someone could let me know what happened in either case, that would be splendid since I did you the favor of letting you in on why I want DVR.
#5) Joya mastered the art of stealing toys from her sister this morning. She would grab something very meaningful of Adie's and then run with it above her head. As if this would prevent her taller sister from grabbing it. Why is this one of my confessions? Because it is HILARIOUS! I am the mother! I should be firm and let Joya know it's a no-no to take things and run. It is so hard to punish your kids when you think something is hilarious. =/ I am sure you can all relate. And I can relate with Joya the swiper because I too was the little sister stealing things from my sister. It really is an art.. and Joya is on track to be an amazing little swiping sister!
#6) Adie and I color together just about every day. And EVERY DAY I am coloring away and the girl leans over and scribbles all over my almost complete page. I know.. I am the mom.. this shouldn't bother me but seriously.. I don't scribble all over her page! This doesn't bother me a whole bunch but maybe just a little. Ok, maybe a tad bit more than a little. Does your kid do this!?
Ok. Confession complete. Make sure you tell me a confession of your own in my comments! Please tell me I'm not the only one out there that is giving their daughter osteoperosis, watches Dateline religiously and thinks it's funny when your youngest steals things from the oldest.
