Are my McCoy girls cool or what? Its in the blood.
Yes, we like to strike a pose right before bed.
Swords and all. Batman cape included.
How do I get rid of those beady little red eyes, and show my one blue-eyed anomally. We don't joke about swords, its serious business.
Okay, just a run through.
Dumb stuff today:
My friend Renee and I (who have the day off for Rosh Hashana, thank you my Jewish neighbors, Happy New Year to you too, and enjoy apples and honey) decided to take our combined 6 six kids, ages 5 and under, to the bowling alley. Because they have air conditioning and the zoo does not, and its still 100 degrees here...for the rest of the week. We figured it was just an hour, right? Try the longest hour of our life!
So, it was a little hairy sometimes. Darby took off her bowling shoes and socks after every turn. The one year olds would not sit still. We ordered food. And candy. The place was packed. Turns out every other mother in the valley has bowling on her mind. Next time we will bring husbands. But don't we get an A for effort? And for trying to be cool moms who try new adventures. And the kids were dying to go...we only lasted seven frames.
But the bigger question I have, is why this world is so cruel? Because at 29 years old, I have a bright red zit (mountain) on the tip of my nose. When does that stop? No makeup will cover it up, but I might charge tickets if you want to check it out...wait...I hear Santa calling.
Smarter stuff today:
6 p.m party jam.
After baths and after I've run out of ideas and I chosen not to hold a grudge that my kids did not gobble up my dinner I cooked like I'd imagined...and Jason still has a long time before he is home.... we dance. Shaking all our four tushies to our favorites. This is almost a daily ritual.
The tunes are usually, Daniel Powter's, "Have a Bad day", Jonas Brothers "Kids of the Future", Miley Cyrus, Fergie-edited, "Born in the USA" by Bruce, "Rad Moves" by the Backyardigans, Ikona (all tracks), Chris Brown "Forever", and "If I had a million dollars," by the Barenaked ladies...all kid friendly. So if you drive by our house it will be thumping.
It really helps my psyche.
Anything to postpone more cleaning, right?
