On the phone

Last night Aidan had his Daddy held hostage in our bedroom watching cartoons as he does most evenings. He had his play cell phone in there with him and they were taking turns on the phone "talking" to whoever they imagine is calling. So Aidan picks up the phone and the conversation goes like this...

"Heddo?!?! Oh, just watchin' Tom and Jerry and being a brat."

Ya think he hears his behavior described like that occasionally?

So far today...

Today is Aidan's 3rd birthday! He's already had a celebration of sorts...when he got up he caught sight of a cupcake that I had sitting on my computer desk and insisted that he "needed" it for his birthday. Well, the kid's right, it's his birthday and I'm a sucker for that face he makes so yes, at 8am, I let my 3yr old eat a cupcake. So I'm checking emails and he's eating his cupcake quietly on the chair when I hear him squeal in delight "ooohhhh! I made a mess of my penis for my birthday!" Uh hu, he smeared cupcake and frosting all over his nether regions :) He's so wired up about his birthday party this evening, today should be an interesting day for us. ~A

You Asked, I Answered

What? I have to limit my answer to only 8 strange facts or habits about me? Ha! AJ's right, I'm OCD as heck! Anyone who knows me at all will probably be able to come up with several more examples off the top of their head but this is what I came up with quickly. Here goes...

1. I have a terrible potty mouth. When not in the company of children, I pretty much punctuate with the F bomb. I don't know why, I hate to hear other people talk like that, I know it sounds awful... I just can't help myself.

2. I'm obsessed with the mail. I wait all day for the mail. I just have a need to see what we've got in there! Our mail usually doesn't come until late late afternoon - sometimes after 5pm and this distresses me greatly.

3. I am addicted to cheese. My favorite snack (and it has nothing to do with pregnancy as I've done it since childhood) is melted cheese. I will fill a bowl up with whatever cheese is in the house, melt it in the microwave, sit down in pure cheese bliss, and eat it up!

4. I love to smoke. Yes, cigarettes. I say I'm a non-smoker but when I was in college, I smoked alot! And when I'm not pregnant and I'm with my sister or a friend who smokes, I'll smoke. I hate the way it smells later, I hate to smell it on other people, I know it's gross and dangerous and blah blah blah but I honestly love it!

5. Chapstick and flossers...I am not kidding, I have chapstick and pocket flossers stashed away everywhere! There's a stash in the kitchen junk drawer as well as in key bowl right above the kitchen junk drawer, in my bedside table, in the top drawer in our bathroom, in the top drawer in the guest bathroom, in my computer desk, in my purse, in the console of my car, and yes, I even have some in my husband's truck - much to his annoyance.

6. I cut the top off the bag of chips rather than dig my hand in deep and get greasy or messy. My step-mother thinks this is the oddest thing!

7. I am terrified of balloons - the rubber ones. I cannot stand the thought that they could pop at any time. It's the unexpected loud noise that could startle me at any moment. I don't like fireworks either for the same reason.

8. Lists! Man, I love lists! I make lists for everything and keep them in my purse. The only thing better than the lists is marking stuff off of them. I'll even write down stuff I already did just so I can mark it off the list.

Because I could...

A few weeks ago, Aidan's cousins were at our house visiting. Several times Jayden would come out of Aidan's room crying and holding his head or arm or something. 

I'd ask, "Jayden, what happened?" and he'd cry and say or point to Aidan. 

I'd then ask Aidan, "Aidan, why is Jayden crying? Did you hit him?" 

And he'd say, "yes, I did", as if I had asked him if he liked his ice cream. 

Well, one time during lunch when Daddy was home, Jayden comes running out of Aidan's room crying and holding his head. He points to Aidan and so Daddy asked Aidan, "Aidan, what happened?" 

Aidan very matter of factly says, "I hit Jayden in the head with my broom in my bedroom!" 

We kind of looked at eachother a little nervously ,"Why did you do that?" 

Aidan responds with this little gem... "Mmmmmm, because I could."

I used to supervise felons, now I think I might be raising one.
