Sometimes I wonder if my four year old understands my sarcasm perfectly and sometimes I wonder if he uses sarcasm right back on me but I just don't know it.

Today my son came to me as I was cooking in the kitchen.
Dane: Mom can you please make me some blueberries with strawberries in them?
Me: Of course I can. I live to please you.

Dane: Well I'll be in the front room playing with my toys and you can deliver them to me out there or I can come get them.

Me: Okay then, I will make your berries and bring them to you in a room your not supposed to eat in because my every waking moment is for you.

Dane: (as he's running from the room) Or you can call me and I'll come get them and then you won't know what room I'm not supposed to be eating them in.

This is what I have created............

Free Piano's, Sick Kids and Big Assed Eggs

Last month a friend asked me if I wanted a piano. A free piano. Of course I said yes.

Once we got it home I almost pooped my pants. It's so big and UN-taken care of. We had it weeks before I could bring myself to really look at it and see the beauty of it. I still don't know how old it is, maybe made in the early 1900's. I'll know more when I get it tunes but that won't be until after the first of the year. Until then the kids are having a great time having a piano in the house.

This kid has been sick. They all got sick and this one got it last but it hung onto him the longest. Last week he didn't leave the house except to go to the Dr.s office. He lost two lbs in a two week period. He's on the mend now. Today, while I attempted to nap, he ate one package of pop tarts, two ice cream sandwiches and a double pack of ring dings I had hidden for school lunches. Apparently not hidden enough. I can say I think he'll gain his weight back and then some.
