Also, we are discussing family budgeting and moving to a new congregation on MtoM. I would love to hear your take on these subjects if you feel so inclined (and even if you don't).

Jeana, thanks for making me feel young again. Let me know when they start making lingerie in flannel.

It starts out innocently enough...
*You may think I should consider parenting my children instead of taking pictures of their inappropriate antics. You are probably right, but you know you have always wanted to cut a lambs head off, admit it.

This is right after surgery. Sad.
"I will pay you back for this, you know."
In all seriousness everything went better than we could have anticipated and we are so relieved to have this behind us. The worst part was handing him over to 'Uncle Whore-hay' (aka Nurse George, and yes, I know that is not how you spell that but wouldn't it be funny if it was?) and watching him be taken to the OR.
And for all you Moms out there who have a kid that is going to have to have surgery on their nether-regions be sure and opt for the baby epidural (there is a scientific term for this but I can't pronounce it, much less spell it). The kid in the room next to us had some sort of similar surgery but he was just put to sleep and didn't also get the epidural thingy - not good. He screamed his head off the second his eyes were opened and it didn't stop for over an hour. Granted Bode was put to sleep and temporarily paralyzed but at least we didn't have to endure the screaming. Wait, we did have to endure it. Every person on the third floor had to endure it. But at least it wasn't our kid. All this to say, paralyze your kid. It is so worth it.

This picture is in no way related to my post. Although if you are wondering who kept me up until the wee hours of the morning, you're looking at her.

I guess I should be completely honest here and tell you Uncle Lucas did give us the tickets (the perks of being a producer) and I had to bribe Mia with a piece of candy to get her out of Aubrie's lap and into mine. But still. Does it count that we were going to take her anyway, even if Lucas didn't get us the tickets? No, I didn't really think so either.

after less than 30 glorious seconds of aloneness...
Mia: Mom, you have to come in here, there is a giant in the living room and he is eating all my food.
Me: Then go get some more food and leave me alone.
Mia: I can't. The giant says that after he eats all my food he is going to eat me.
Me: Just ignore him.
Mia: He said he is going to kill all the three year olds in this house.
Me: Then tell him you're four.
Mia: But that is a lie. Daddy says not to lie, it is a bad choice.
Me: Mommy says you can lie if a giant is in your living room threatening to kill you.

Remember when you used to dream about being a mother and all you thought it consisted of was dressing up kids in cute clothes and showing them off at church? It is so much worse and better than that all at the same time. Funny how that works.
