Mommy Points-a big loss

I figure we earn and loose Mommy (or Daddy) points as a parent.
One of my larger point losses to date was my over-sleeping (read kids were awake watching TV)and getting my son to school late on picture day. He missed the class photo, and I hadn't filled out or brought the for for him to order class or individual pics. :-(

Some points are lost just for daily survival means.
Both my kids are playing soccer. My son is The Killer Bees (yellow and black) my dtr is the Bumble Bees (yellow and black). Inevitably minutes before the game I cannot locate to appropriate pieces of the uniform. I have become the bait and switch artist. Todays clean laundry yielded 2 clean jerseys (1 each) one pair of black shorts and 1 pair of the requisite yellow socks. Dress A in his shirt and "the" black shorts and "the" yellow socks, go to his game. Come home have him change out of uniform. Give Ki her jersey and "the" socks and shorts. No one notices. No harm, no foul. How many years am I going to be able to pull that off? How many people do I actually admit this to?

Bladder Infection

A four year old girl's description and experience of a bladder infection.

5:00 pm
"Mama, I have to go potty."
5:10 pm
"Mama, I have to go peepee."
5:12 pm
"Mama, I have to go peepee again"
"Mama, the peepee is hot."
"Mama, my bagina (see prior post for definition) hurts when I go peepee."
"Mama, I'm in here going peepee."

For those in the medical field that would be "frequent urination with urgency and burning".

Fall weather and speech therapy

There are more seasonal colds with the onset of October. Inevitibly this also means that all the little guys I see for therapy are therefore much more interested in hugs and kisses. How can anyone turn down an affectionate offering from these sweet boys? Perhaps all the affection delivered boosts my immune system beyond normal capacity, I rarely get sick.

New pet

I am obsessed with getting a pet guinea pig, or 2.
More to come.

Burps and Toots

Burps and toots (farts).
Nothing is funnier to my 4ish and 6ish aged children. I hear the words burp and fart countless times a day. Then I have to bust out the "It is not nice to use potty talk. If you want to use potty talk, then you'll have to go to the potty." Good thing I never burp or toot myself.

There is a direct correlation between the cost of your pedicure and when you smudge it.

I must hear at a hundred times a day from Ki. Must be another 4 year-old-phase.
