rag doll

Gus's hair in rags!! I am missing the after picture because, when we took them out and looked in the mirror she started to cry, and screamed "I LOOK LIKE A POODLE!!" everyone at school told her she looked "sooooo CUTE" so she's already requesting rags again.

don't mess with Handsome

yesterday at school, Handsome's teacher gave him the task of helping one of his classmates to the big bathroom down the hall. so he took him down to the bathroom and was waiting patiently while the other little boy used the facilities.

well while he was waiting some "big boys" fifth graders came into the bathroom and started messing with Handsome. Well supposedly he didn't like what they were saying so he KICKED them in the shins!!

not that i should be a proud mama about this, but well i kinda am.

when asked to comment handsome said, "I don't want to talk about it, they were just not being very nice"

this evening for dinner we were going to have taco salad, well the presidents don't really care for taco salad, so being the nice mom that i am, i gave them the option of nachos, as is to be expected Gus was having an attitude moment, so when i asked her if she would like the cheese melted, first she ignored me, then finally rolled her eyes and said "sure"

a little fact about me that i've learned in the last few years is that i'm a yes or no person, "sure" just doesn't cut it, I like a YES, or a NO. so i asked her "yes or no?" again she said "sure", i asked again "yes or no", she again said "sure"

now i know full well that i needed to be the bigger person here and move on so i did and asked little miss attitude to give the blessing on the food.

her prayer
"Dear Heavenly Father, please help my mom to know the meaning of the word "sure" and please bless the food..."
