Boy Toys

Must File Under:
"Things That Made Me Snort and/or Fall Off the Couch Laughing."

On the one hand, I appreciate knowing that my local McD's is out of boy toys (underlined) cause damn - I ALWAYS go to McD's looking for a boy toy. Seriously. At the drive thru. "Yes, I'd like a Filet-o-Fish combo meal with a boy toy. Oh and can you supersize that please???" LMAO. Hahahahaha.......have a great one.....

I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaack!

I got a little distracted with life after my last post - but thats OK cause it's only been about 9 months. No, I didn't have a baby. So what happened? Well.....I got fed up one night while trying to choose a free background for this blog. The little idea of "you get what you pay for" ran thru my head - in this case, I was paying nothing, so my blog got...well, nothing. I wrote "Under Construction" as my title, signed out and promptly quit blogging. Till today. I recently discovered, and became obsessed with, "PINTEREST." Any of yall like Pinterest? It dawned on me, as I was searching for funny things to "pin", like this:

that quite a few of my pins would be excellent fodder for a blog. And wowee, I all ready HAVE a blog - it just needed a little TLC! (and a new, "simple" background and template that even I can figure out.) YAY!

Crackers, Popcorn and Chicken...Recipe for a Meltdown

Let me just say upfront that I have the sweetest little boy in the whole wide world. He is my heart. I looked in on him a few moments ago and he looks like such a little asleep. The operative word there is "asleep." My sweet, easy to handle child morphed into, well, a 2 year old seemingly overnight. (I think 2 year old should be a four letter word). Cameron discovered the freedom that lay beyond the confines of his pack 'n' play while we were at the beach over New Years. The 1st night he crawled out and came upstairs after we put him to bed, we proceeded to everything you aren't supposed to do. We asked if he was hungry. We told him "no" in a firm voice. We put him back to bed. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. By now I am exasperated. My tone of voice became stressed (in toddler reasoning, this means we have succeeded in getting Mommy's attention!!!). So I put him back in bed...again....and made the quintissential mistake of laying down on the twin bed and watching him. We have a major staring contest and I find myself wondering who taught him the "I can go longer than you without blinking" game??? He begins to stand up in the pack 'n' play and I immediately say "No! Lay down!" that he has gotten my attention. I pretend to be asleep. (cause that always worked when we were kids, right??) Maybe if the thinks I am asleep he'll go to sleep. *sigh* Fast forward to Raleigh. Home sweet home....and ANOTHER bed to conquer. Our first night home we put him back in bed almost 10 times. Tonight was just as bad - worse, even, cause he also had a meltdown after we wouldn't let him have crackers and popcorn for dinner. Bad parents we are, we wanted him to eat chicken. (the cows would be proud!). But now he's asleep. And I had a meltdown on Facebook. And guess what? I am not alone. Apparently my toddler isn't the only one who like to test their boundaries. I am not the only mother who found herself sitting on the floor in the kitchen crying because her child wanted to eat crackers and then refused to go to sleep. Let me remember..."This too shall pass...."
