Today, as an Unenumerated List

i bought LaLa a Baker’s Edge Brownie pan for Christmas. I am a No Edge (No Bake) person, so this is the worst possible idea for me personally, but LaLa is all about the edges and the baking. It was supposed to be in by December 13, and upon further investigation…? Hadn’t even shipped. Grr. Did any of you get one of these? You, my friend, are blessed. All of the Internet says they are backordered until late January. Anyway. I think I got one re-ordered from a different site.

Tonight we took our three boys plus an extra boy to a family fun sort of place. hard to describe. lots of trampline basketball, balls, blocks, see saws. See? Hard to explain. Then to dinner. We had a great time, and the boy who is not one of my sons told a fabulous joke. “What do you get when you cross a vampire and a snowman?”

frostbite. Isn’t that cute?!

Mike made a whole lot of cookies.

I ate a whole lot of cookies.

Caden-3yr got out of bed a thousand times tonight after being tucked in. (A thousand is roughly twice as often as usual.)

Ethan-7yr experimented with swearing. We revisited the issue.

Seth-2yr flirted shamelessly with countless cute little girls today. All my boys do this. To an extreme. It’s disturbing.

Seth-2yr has invented a way to rotate the artificial, full sized, Christmas tree using only his tiny backside. He can make it turn in a full circle. And today he decorated it by throwing a used, wadded up tissue at it. I think he misses the ornaments.

Next week, I will miss the Christmas lights, shining through the bedroom window while I go to sleep.

And my mom.

Who casually worked the word ‘brazilian’ into a conversation recently.

I did not know the meaning of that particlar word, so it seemed.

And I have since been enlightened.

I am completely okay with never, ever being as cool as J-Mom. I just don’t even know how she does it.

Although it might have something to do with her chick a wow wow.

Ooooh. I hope she wasn’t using the word Brazilian in the context of waxing. If so, I’d be perfectly fine with never ever being that cool too. Ouch.

Unless we are talking about coffee, I never want to hear my mother say the word Brazilian. I think I’m safe on that one.

Oh, she meant the waxing. You should have seen Kelsey’s face. No one’s eyes go as round in shock as my sister’s!

Why did you not tell me???? Brownie edge pan, oh my!!! I could have made sure you got one girl! Currently I believe the P/T job Chef Central is out of the brownie pan but had them. I could have made sure, but you didn’t tell me. LOL!

Anyway, so funny about your flirty little boy!

J-Mom is certainly cool.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

I’ve just discovered your blog and I love it. The “spicy” language posts made me laugh. My 7 year old went through this phase too, it is very hard to be nonchalant when your innocent child is cussing like a sailor. Sounds like you worked it out though. I look forward to reading!

I’m with Antique Mommy on this one… Ei yi yi.

I’ve never heard of a Baker’s Edge pan. I’m learning new things every day.

I managed to score an edge pan for the SIL. But I shopped Thanksgiving weekend so maybe I beat the rush. Who knew it was such a popular item?

Brazilian? Oh my. I need an epidural just thinking about the pain that would cause. I can’t even get my eyebrows waxed without clinching my teeth in excruciating discomfort. Give your three cuties a hug from me! I’m going to try La-la’s instructions for the chick a wow wow dance! Thomas may think it’s a new mating ritual! ROFL

Your 2 year old spinning and papering the tree – that’s hysterical! Our tree had only the top section decorated this year. We had some hard lessons last time around.
