2 Funny Guys

Crewe: Mom can I watch Pokeman, when I am five?

Me: Well, why don't you and dad watch it and decide if you are old enough now to watch it.

Rich just walks into the the room. 

Crewe: Dad, can I watch Pokeman?

Rich: Uh, Buddy. I don't think....

Crewe: (throwing himself on the couch?) YOU ARE RUINING MY LIFE!!!!

Rich: How many times am I going to hear that the next 20 years?

Bad mother Report

Crewe has been really sick the last couple of days. I am tired of staying at home, wiping noses, being up in the middle of the night, cool showers, and administrating medicine. I am not a good nurse (where did I get that, Mom?) and I want to be done.

YAY- I LOVE going to the movies and am looking forward to the following movies. They all are being released in May and I want to see them. Hopefully kid free. Except Speed Racer, Rich is going to take Crewe to that movie and I will be off DUTY. Call me if you want to see a movie with me and you are not sick.

How I became a 14 year old Boy

Saturday night we had a few friends over for a little BBQ. Let me first say, it was very fun. Thanks for coming. 

I had a migraine all day and was worried at how I would be able to enjoy the games. I think my head started feeling better (2 diet dr. pepper and 2 diet cherry seven ups later) and we started playing games, so we put the kids all the bed and started to play a new game. Settlers of Catan. It is a very complicated but similar to our beloved Hotels, the game. One of the components of the game is to trade resources as you build your settlements. For example:

Angie: Will someone trade me some sheep for wheat?

Nathan: I will but can you trade me some brick for ore?

Around 1am this conversation:

Rich: I need wood! Can someone give me wood?

Do I need to finish this post? Read the title.

A Richard Moment

Yes, I still am posting about Rich's birthday. His birthday was LAST Monday and we had a party for him the weekend before (another post). BUT today I am complaining about the old Richard. Aren't you tired of only happy cute children posts? They will continue....

We all have those moments. You know, the moments were you freak out because you are stressed and tired. A couple of weeks ago Rich was SO tired after working 8 hours at Kohls and 4  hours working pools and I was complaining about his billing.  He then snapped, "Could you at least make dinner?"  I was mad but dinner was made every night that week. Last night he was looking for work clothes. It was SO HOT in the house last night. It was warm outside (87) and all he could find was a long sleeve shirt. So what does Rich do? He cut off the arms of his long sleeve shirt. Didn't measure, didn't cut evenly. The word laundry was muttered under his breath. So guess what I am doing today....?

You all know how I feel about LAUNDRY. 

PS. Jokes on Rich. It is overcast and cold today. I can hardly wait to see him in his work shirt.

Ps I still love Rich. See, that is why we have the Happy Pictures posted above.

I know, not a lot of blogs from me. What to say.....

1. I have a temp tatoo of Sally. Although it is fake (I promise, Dad) and it peeks out the edge of my shirt. I kind of feel like a BAD-ASS.

2. Baby Dayne (one word) is delish.

3. See not a lot going on.
