Highlights of the Day (Tuesday)

1) Hannah was only up in the middle of the night for half the time she was the night before. Yay.

2) It was overcast today with on and off showers, so I didn't have to feel guilty that I didn't take Hannah outside much.

3) Had to deal with 4 seperate tantrums today due to Hannah's wardrobe. First, she wanted to get dressed the second I got her out of the crib. So she did. One hour later, she wanted her freshly washed "Pooh Bear Jammies" on. So we dug them out of the dryer and put them on her. A few hours later, she wanted to get dressed again. But not in the same outfit she had put on earlier. I told her noand that her choices were the Pooh jammies or the first outfit. I actually won that one and she kept the Pooh jammies on (Not without much screaming and throwing things, of course). One hour later, she wanted the first outfit back on "because it matches Mommy's shirt..." (They were both pink.) Cool. After her nap, she discovered a pair of too small pink shoes with embroidered flowers on the strap and screamed for 10 minutes for her button down floral shirt "that matches the shoes." Jesus, this kid is killing me.

4) Had a slight sand-in-the-eyes emergency this evening when the girls decided that throwing sand in each other's faces was kind of fun, regardless of what Mommy kept saying was inevitably going to happen to one of them.

5) During the above fiasco, discovered that although Hannah is tiny, DAMN that kid's got some strength.

6) Realized that the day my dish washing detergant will no longer sit on my bathroom sink, will be a day I party "Like it's 1999."

7) Speaking of which, I heard "Let's Go Crazy" by Prince on the radio again today. That's just weird. Do you think someone's trying to tell me something?

8) Had to suffer ALL day today when I woke up and discovered that Steve had consumed every last drop of non-alcoholic beverages in our home (other than coffee) last night and that I was going to have to suck it up and suffer all day in my Cokeless hell.

9) Realized I could've gone down the street to the gas station for something to drink, but it didn't seem worth the hassle of throwing Hannah in the car and/or the embarrassment of having to pay for it using all dimes and nickels.

10) Grace is just odd. She bought two cheap plastic necklaces for herself and Hannah at some point during her stay with Grandma the past two days. For Hannah, she picked a cute little plastic heart with a smiley face on it. For herself? Why, an eyeball of course. What could be more feminine and age appropriate than a cheap, plastic eyeball necklace? [shaking head]

LMAO!! Funny.

I will party with you "like it's 1999" when you get your kitchen back! (((Alien doing dishes in her tub and sink)))

It really is embarassing paying for things with dimes and nickles -- and rolls of pennies -- isn't it? Usually when I'm forced to nickle n' dime it, I make sure I'm wearing a wife beater with a mustard stain on it, just for good measure.

The best is going thru the drivethru paying with all coins. I haven't dropped a handful yet, but came pretty damn close once.

When I worked the Drive Thru there was a guy who came through and paid for a ridiculously large order with like, pennies. He had all this change in a Ziploc baggie and he handed me the baggie and dropped it...the coins went everywhere...under his car, under the car behind him...kids started running over to pick them up. I was like, "Dude, I'm so *not* leaving my booth to pick those up."

Alien said...

LOL! See I would've said, "Dude, it's on me. Enjoy your meal." LOL! So DID he pick them up?

mama_tulip said...

YES. Every single fucking one. It caused a drive-thru riot.

Alien said...

LOL! I sooo would've paid for his meal, lemme tell ya.

mama_tulip said...

Yeah but watching the whole scene unfold was much more entertaining. ;)
