READ A BOOK YOU BUM!

Would it surprise you to know that all four of my very different children are watching Ghostbusters 2 in the gameroom right now? Would it also make you scratch your head in wonder that they all seem content and quiet? Elijah is not jumping off furniture, Max isn't yelling at me to get her some type of snack that she's not ever allowed to have ('MOM! CAN I HAVE CANDY NOW???' 'MOM!??!?? CAN YOU GET ME A SIPPY CUP WITH POP IN IT? NOW??!'), Rose isn't bouncing around the room with frenetic energy...

The fact that Olivia is lounging completely comotose and in her underwear doesn't shock me in the least. I used to call her Spike, as in the sleepy dinosaur from The Land Before Time...

The quality of that video is almost too horrible to watch...Sorry.
Olivia may be lethargic and constantly hungry, but she shed the chubby baby weight by age 15 months and has been incredibly long and lean since then. The girls' have very tall relatives on their dad's side including an uncle who's 6'10'' and two aunts over 6'0'', so I'm assuming that they'll be a little taller than average.
Me, on the other hand, not so tall and not growing anymore.

OK, the spell is broken and Max just came in and asked for Chinese food for breakfast. Let the day begin!

Oh, before I get to the excitement, another item of random junk has permeated it's way into someone's blog (and their home).

Mommy is in the Bathroom doesn't seem all that happy with her piece of crap...
I know that she's being tongue in cheek, but just to reiterate, I was going to throw these things away originally... AND they were picked randomly. Once I sent out the envelopes of junk I took the whole bag Rose picked from and put it out in the garbage.

And the other thing, Mommy, how can you be bored?! I'll tell you what I tell everyone who has ever said that phrase around me ever, "READ A FREAKING BOOK YOU BUM!!!"

When I yell that at my kids 75% of them cry and say, "But Momma! I don't know how to read!".

This just in: 75% of children (in Erin's home) in America can't read. What a sad state the world is in.

By the way, I think it's adorable that your daughter demands food she's not even allowed to have. Maybe she's just working on her Jedi mind powers.

I have a niece who is ....high maintenance, and no matter what hoops I jump through to entertain her (Chuck E. Cheese and the park in one afternoon, movies, whatever) she's always saying "I'm bored" every 30 minutes. I finally told her that only people who were not very interesting got bored all the time.

When people tell me they're bored I like to say, "Only boring people get bored", but then I have to be very careful not to say that I'm bored-ever.

Um, when I was young, "Heeb" was a slur for "Jew." I'm assuming it's not anymore? :)

I watched the "The Land Before Time" over and over and over and over....you get the idea. My daughter was mesmerized by it so whenever she was sick, I would pop it in the VCR and she was placated for hours.

I see you changed your post on account of me. Wow, I feel powerful. :) I hope you know I was not in any way accusing you of slurs. :) For all I know, the youth of today have co-opted this label and turned it into something completely different. :)
