A 3 yr old's commentary on SYTYCD

Pin It

"Why is that lady screaming" (in response to Mary screaming)

"Mommy, will you and Daddy dance like that? (after a sexy samba)

"Mommy, is that girl beautiful?" (whenever a pretty girl comes on screen)

"Those three people are standing up (Cat and contestants) and those three people are sitting down" (Judges)

"You wanna watch Mommy?" "Mommy" (when I paused for 2 seconds...)

"Mommy, is that a loud one?" (to an Usher song)

"Mommy, is that an Annie song?" (to a classical pieces...."Annie" meaning Little Einsteins)

Tot talk :)

Pin It

"BebeRed! Did you wake up your brother?

Yes.

Why?

Because I love him."




"Mommy is that you and Daddy being beautiful?" (looking @ wedding pic)




"Mommy, mommy, is this you?? (referring to a Tinkerbell puzzle)

I don't know, does it?

Yes, it does look like you. She is beautiful. She is a princess. You're a princess mommy!"

Abortion and why I'm proud to be a Nebraskan

Pin It

When I was pregnant with my second child, I didn't find out until 12 weeks. I had o clue I was pregnant and I had already been through it once before! If a girl that has never been through pregnancy, never seen an ultrasound, never thought about the life inside of her goes to have an abortion, what is stopping her? If she doesn't feel anything and is now shown the child, how would she know? All women should be shown an ultrasound such as this showing a true child being aborted before they are ever given the right to choose what they will do to that life. The video of an abortion being performed at 11 weeks HERE.

The director of planned parenthood saw an ultrasound during an abortion ad it was enough for her to leave her job. It was enough for her to say "Screw the economy - I cannot possibly do this anymore". (Article HERE) How many girls would decide the same if they could only see their babies on an ultrasound and see a child being aborted on ultrasound.

Nebraska is a pretty boring state, but they have gotten one thing VERY right. In May, legislation passed overwhelmingly to require abortion clinics to show mothers an ultrasound of their child before they abort the child. (Article HERE). Why is this not national yet? Who could oppose a woman actually seeing what is inside her before making any decisions at all??

A few weeks ago I read of this mother who went full term with a child she was told would die before she made it to term or shortly after birth. Certainly she was given the option to abort her child, but she choose to give him life. Paul survived 90 minutes outside of the womb, but that short life was worth saving. (Video HERE)

Halloween = Mountain Dew

Pin It

So the best quote of Halloween came while trick-or-treating with our 3 and 1 year old. We went up to a house like normal, rang the doorbell, the door opened and a large silver bucket plopped down in front of us on the stoop. It was full of...get this...cans of Mountain Dew. No joke...a bucket full of warm Mountain Dew.



So bebeRed (who had been polite the whole night so far...we were so proud of him...) looks up at the guy and says:



"That's not a treat!!"



So we quickly shushed him, grabbed a Mountain Dew, thanked the guy and tried not to laugh until we reached the street :)



Then there was Daddy talking his son out of eating a Butterfinger by telling him the twizzler was "bigger". Guess who ended up eating that Butterfinger later??

I was saving this post for photos....but it will be a longtime coming I think...maybe in a few weeks I'll actually get Hallowee pics up :)

I hate, despise, loathe the phone!

Pin It

Yes - you read that correctly...I absolutely hate, desprise and loathe the phone. cell phone, landline, skpe - HATE them!

I found this article awhile ago and it describes my sentiments perfectly :)


I absolutely hate the telephone. I don’t like talking to people on the phone, I don’t like answering the phone, I don’t like returning phone calls, and I don’t like making phone calls. I hate voicemail. I haven’t checked my work voicemail in over a year. The work voicemail has a simple message: “Send me email.” I even asked to have it disabled, but they refused (only in academia could I get away with this…)
I resist calling people — even people I really like — because I just don’t dig the phone.
And more than that, I always wonder what all these people are always blathering to others about on their cellphones constantly. I see students walk out of class, open their phones, and call people. Who the fuck are they calling? I mean, it isn’t like these people are surgeons checking up on their patients or Wall Street brokers making trades. They’re, like, totally calling their friends to, like, CHAT!
Anyway, to those of you that love the phone — and trust me, you’re in the majority, by a large margin — you’re probably reading my post thinking that I’m as nuts as I think you are for liking the phone. A friend once accused me of being “too punk rock” to talk on the phone, but that has nothing to do with it. And to be honest, until a few years back, I wasn’t really sure why I hated the phone so much, but then I was reading The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World which contains a short section on what the author calls “phone phobia.” What it comes down to is this: introverts get their energy from inward reflection and being alone. We re-energize by down time doing the things we enjoy on our own or with a very small group of friends, whereas most everyone else revitalizes by being out and active and involved. The phone interrupts this internal focus, and it requires us to be social on demand — something that we can often play at, but which we’re not necessarily thrilled about. And because we introverts are in the minority, this kind of behavior seems weird to most people.
In a way, it was liberating to read a rational, psychologically-sound reason for my hatred of the phone and my even deeper dislike of socializing. It isn’t that I’m against parties, or having friends, or anything like that, but I generally find much of it really draining, even when I’m sharing the company of people I really like. I can’t explain it, but for some reason, I can only handle so much of it, and as I get older and have access to more of my own space and my own time, I find myself even less interested in it all. I know that to any of you who are extroverts, this will seem radically damaged, possibly dangerous, and maybe even worthy of intervention, but I’m not mentally unstable (well, at least not in this area). I just enjoy my alone time, or time that’s focused with one or two very close friends. Why can’t that just be okay?
Anyway, I’m probably a total freak for enjoying being alone, or enjoying smaller hangouts, but that’s how it goes. Of course, if your know me IRL, I don’t mean to suggest that I don’t like you, or hanging out with you: I do! You’re great. You rock. I love you. I don’t mean any personal offense by not returning your calls or being cagey about hanging out. But you should probably understand that I’m just kind of introverted. I’m pretty good at pretending I’m not, but when it comes down to it, I really am. I can’t help it, and I’m not sure I’d want to.
