Bob: I would probably have a dog but I would pick a big lion, or a bobcat or a puma.
Meghyn: Quit making up animals! I would probably have a bird. Or a dead cat.
Bob: You'd probably have ten cats and two of them would be named Darryl.
Meghyn: You'd have a spider... at least you could scare people.
Bob: I could STARTLE people. There is a difference. They'd be like "AH! Oh it's a spider."
Tonight Bob & I got to babysit Toby & Aimee (along with our own little Starfish) and one notable moment (which I was not present for) was when Toby turned to Bob while they were watching a Thomas the train movie and said (quite randomly), "Bob... some of my socks have holes in them. I don't like that too much."
I would also like to say that when Robyn & Scott came to pick them up I had Aimee asleep in Marley's "crib" (AKA floor mattress) and while they were sitting in the living room waiting for Toby's movie to end so they could all go home I got Marley to sleep ALSO on her floor mattress. So two sleeping babies & a happy (incredibly tired) Toby. Go me!

She was going nuts trying to scratch it through the diaper. Hydrocortisone ftw.
After a conversation with Brenyn yesterday I decided that every time I am bored I am going to do a good deed. I don't get bored very often but I think it will still be a good exercise.

Dan had his birthday party on Sunday and Marley was in a real pool for the first time and she LOVED it.
(below) I barely had to coach them to get this picture.

*It pleases me that I have been able to resist cutting my hair this long. It does not please me that it won't matter since Marley is pulling it all out.
*Bob is going to be 30 on Friday. I am doing my utmost to make it the best 30th bday party he will ever have (and not spend a bunch of money doing it).
*Nearly every day I am reminded just how much our (Bob's and mine) families love us.
*Also thank God for Marley's secondary insurance because her brain scan was 650 and after her regular insurance there was still 350 to pay.
*Buying new starters is expensive. I'd much rather go bowling.
*My sister (Robyn) is a dog owner. She's going to see what she has been missing (+/-) His name is Pace and they adopted him at SPCA on Saturday. He is adult to be sure but how old is anyone's guess. He seems very well behaved. It puts me of a mind to get a new friend for Murphy. Murphy has really not been the same since Guinness died and I am not just being a softy.
*Started reading (ok, listening) to a new book called Angry Conversations with God. It is SO very good. It had me laughing before I even got to the first chapter. I would recommend it to any Christian, or anyone who has ever been angry with their higher power. It is delightfully written. Here is a little quote (paraphrased as I am going by memory).
"Whoever said if the world was run by women there would be no wars, was way wrong. If the UN was run by women you would hear things like, "Oh no that beotch did not invite me to her summit, I am definitely vetoing her ass."And yes, the book says "beotch" and "ass".
*Marley has a diaper rash and it makes me (and her) feel miserable.
*My mom forum has become overwrought with needless (and stupid) drama. I have only posted a few times in the last few days and it saddens me. :(

by a ten-ish year old. I am not exaggerating. He was maybe 12 AT THE VERY MOST. He was walking with his slightly older friend and says to him "she sexy" and then to me "what up mommy?"
SICK. Sexualized preteens turns my stomach and makes me afraid. It seems like for a lot of kids the time they have to actually be a kid is narrowing. I can only imagine the home environment where this kid is learning this misogynistic and TOTALLY inappropriate behavior from.
I could rant so much more but it makes me nauseated.
