Random Tidbits

Bullet time!  Because I can’t seem to string a thought together well enough to create a real post.

  • There are certainly downsides to being a person who naturally stores all her body fat around the middle.  It happened again today.  A cashier asked me what I was having (as in a baby boy or girl).  I wish I could come up with some witty response when perfect strangers mistakenly assume I’m pregnant.  Something other than, “I”M WORKING ON IT, OK?

  • Koren thinks John W. Scherer (the Video Professor) is hilarious. Every time he comes on TV, the kid breaks out into huge grins.

  • Jens walked in on Kaelin’s bath last night to discover that her bath crayons were having an argument.  Two of them were right and one was wrong (about what, we’re not sure).  The one that was wrong had to spend some time in Time Out for being disrespectful to his Mama.  Hmmm… sounds familiar…

  • So yeah.  The economy.  The Bail-Out.  Blech.

  • Kaelin’s birthday is coming up.  Yesterday I took her to Party City to pick out a theme for her party.  She picked Hello Kitty.  I repeatedly questioned her about it, knowing that she doesn’t even know who Hello Kitty is, but she was determined.  Of course, on the way home she changed her mind and decided she wants a puppy birthday party, which I appreciate because Hello Kitty is HELLO PINK and I think I might have an allergic reaction to that much pink at one time.

  • Did you know that if you want to reserve a park pavilion for your kid’s birthday party on a weekend, you have to do so months ahead of time?  I did not know this.

  • Today Kaelin announced that she wanted a cherry cake.  I do not know how to make a cherry cake.  Also, I have to figure out how to draw a puppy with icing. 

  • But dude, I actually cooked dinner 2 nights in a ROW.  Like, stuff that didn’t come out of a box.  And tonight, my kid actually ATE IT instead of throwing it on the floor.  This is HUGE, PEOPLE.  HUGE.

  • Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some invitations to address…

      I think they have a cherry chip cake – they being Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker or someone.  As for the puppy, find a plastic one and plop it on top!  At least the cherry cake would have gone with Hello Pink, I mean Kitty.

      Wow, I bet the cashier felt pretty lame – that’s crazy!

      Can you see your mom smiling as she reads this blog and thinking, “That’s my girl…I knew she would learn to cook.” Now think of all the fun times you will have with your kids in the kitchen.

      By the way…I like the plastic puppy dog on top of the birthday cake. It seems I did something like that once although it was basketball players, hoop and basketball. Kids like the 3D treatment,then they can play with the decorations after the cake is gone. Dog bone or dog shaped cookie cutters and a small can of playdough would make nice favors.

      Erin, I looked for that cake mix today.  Apparently they don’t carry it here.  She might have to settle for chocolate cake smile

      1 time, about 10 years ago I went to the market & was buying ice cream for my kids. I got Frosty Paws & it wasn’t until my son tried it that we realized they were doggy ice creams. Ha!
