Drama Queen

I think I have a little drama queen on my hands. And I don't mean that in an entirely negative way. Now, don't get me wrong, Sprite can be dramtaic, and those of you that have seen her in the midst of a tantrum know what I am talking about but she is also very dramatic in the sense that she is expressive/artistic. She makes some of the cutest/funniest faces I have ever seen. She loves to sing and she loves to dance and she loves it when people watch her even more. I have a name that tune video to post of Sprite singing-if i can ever get it to upload!

In the meantime, here is Sprite demonstrating a few of her expressions:

The New Wrinkle Eraser

The other day I was helping Sprout with this homework when he suddenly looked at me and brought his pencil eraser to my forehead. "What are you doing, I asked?" He said, "You have a line on your head and I'm trying to get it off." I thought I had a pen mark on my forehead or something but when it wouldn't come off and he attempted to erase another one between my eyes, I realized he was trying to erase my wrinkles!!! I think he might be able to save me a fortune in Botox if we can figure out a way to make this work!

A Day Late and a Dollar Short

It seems like every year my poor husband gets neglected on his birthday. Yesterday was his birthday and we celebrated in typical fashion-chaos! It was a very busy day for all of us and the Hubs got shortchanged once again.

I had an event at the General Assembly and was up late preparing the night before. I went to bed around 1 am. Got up before 6 am. Had my event from 9 am-2 pm; had to rush home for a webinar from 3-4:30 pm; threw in a load of laundry because we were out of clean towels; called our home warranty company to file a claim for our house in Kansas; ran to the grocery store at 4:30 pm to pick up items that the Hubs needed for work; went to the vet at 5:00 pm to pick up the kitties from their surgery ( they were de-clawed) and to have Aspen's eye re-checked (he scratched his cornea); had to run back to the grocery store because the vet failed to inform me that I needed special litter for the kitties until their paws heal prior to picking them up; sped to childcare to pick up the kids by 6 pm (I made it in the nick of time); got home and unloaded the dog, kitties, kids and groceries; captured kitties who managed to escape outdoors while I was unloading groceries; scarfed down fast food that the Hubs picked up on his way home (so much for a birthday dinner); helped Sprout with his homework while the Hubs bathed Sprite; helped Sprout fill out his Valentines; sent out a few urgent e-mails; folded clothes; put kids to bed; collapsed on the couch!!!!

I'm so sorry that you did not get the time or attention that you deserve honey! He is such a good sport though; he never once complained and even stayed up with me the night before folding brochures and collating papers and offered me his drink (the last alcoholic beverage) when he saw me to go the fridge for one last night during the chaos.

We are having his birthday dinner tonight with his favorite cake (Dump cake) and going on a date tomorrow! Hopefully, that makes up for yesterday!

Happy Birthday Babe-I Love You!!

She's a Superstahhhh!!

Meet my friend Sarah:

She is an ultracool, hip mama who just happens to be the owner of the Pitter Patter Boutique. The same Pitter Patter Boutique that was just featured in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine! Her car seat strap covers were featured in the "The Baby Gear Road Test." Click here to see for yourself.

I would just like to say that I knew Sarah before she became a superstahhhh and I think I may have even been the first person to test out these "snazzy" strap pads. They rock and so do you Sarah-Congratulations!!

One Hit Wonder

Apparently I have joined the ranks of one hit wonders like :

Sinead O'Connor, "Nothing Compares 2U."

Biz Markie, "Just a Friend."

Billy Ray Cyrus, "Achy Breaky Heart."

And we can't forget Sir Mix-a-Lot with "Baby Got Back."

No sooner did I submit that blog post about being a rock star than WRAL changed the later segment of the piece that I was in. I figure they had more time to edit and decided they didn't need my silly face in there anyway. So, if you followed the link in an attempt to share in my rock stardom and wondered where I was, I was next to the lady in the red suit; a one hit wonder! Oh well, it was good while it lasted!

So, this got me thinking...what are some of your favorite one hit wonders? Come on, don't try to act like you didn't like them. Besides, your secret is safe with me (and the other 3, 286, 453 bloggers that may wander to this page!)

I'm not embarassed, and to prove it I offer you one of my personal favorite one hit wonders:
4 Non Blondes, "What's Up"
