My Poor Precious Baby *Insert sarcastic voice & eye roll*


Fishing Pole is home with me from school today.  His class is heading off to a field trip where there are lots of magnets involved..  I had called the place myself to ask them if there were certain exhibits that he should stay away from due to his pacemaker.   I was given the list which I promptly sent to his teacher.    In the end, it was decided that it was too big of a responsibility for the teacher to be in charge of this ( insert eye roll). 

It was all good and fine.  Dimples had a field trip to the zoo today (which I was going along on) and Fishing Pole as given permission to attend that field trip instead. This way he still got a fun day out..  Well naturally mother nature decided to piss all over those plans.  It's a rainy day & the zoo trip is postponed until next week. 

And so this is how Fishing Pole ended up home with me for the day - apparently dying from boredom.

I have promised him that we can go out to lunch- anywhere he wants.  Naturally that is met with "Well I know you'll say no to where I want to go."..  Hmm, what part of anywhere you want does he not understand..

Still he insists on being as negative as possible about everything. There has been one rule today-  No TV (movies, netflix ect).  Apparently I have just ruined his world because now he has absolutely nothing to do.   Nothing except sit on the couch, put on his best "I'm dying here" face and give big dramatic sighs.

I have offered several options.  Go play with your micro chargers!   How about coloring? You love to color..   Go draw me a picture or write a story.  How about blocks? Build something cool with blocks.   Each suggestion is met with an eye roll.

Finally I have threatened to go print off some math work for him to do if he doesn't get off this couch and GO PLAY..    For the love of  pete !! 

Signs you know your child has too much stuff and is a bit spoiled 101.

1, 2, 3 Strikes you're out..

I admit I'm a tiny bit of an over-protective momma..  It's in my blood.  I can't help myself. 

So when Fishing Pole (2nd grade) came home with a field trip slip to a baseball game (during school), I was leary of letting him go.  It's a bus ride about an hour away, going to be crazy busy..  The boy just had 2 surgeries a few months ago..   I have a hard time with all that he's been thru ,letting my guard down and actually trusting someone else with his care.   Eventually , Daddy Chaos & I agreed that he's old enough to speak up if he's having issues and that we should let him go. It doesn't hurt that he was recently cleared by the back dr & had a cardio appt today as well (cleared!).   So I signed the slip to let him go.  Tomorrow..


Yesterday I received a phone call from Dimple's teacher (kindergarten) that she didn't have a permission form for Dimple's to go on the baseball field trip..  Say WHAT?   Apparently K-2 are all going..  And then my peeps, I started to freak out.   No way was I letting the baby go on this field trip too.. I spent days agonizing over whether to let Fishing Pole go w/o me, sorry its simply not going to happen with the youngest.   Thankfully I mentioned it to Daddy Chaos who looked at me like I was crazy and said NO, he's not going.. lol.   

And then I sat trying to figure out how I'd keep him home w/o looking like that crazy mom who won't let her kids go anywhere with out her.  (Yes, I am that mom... but that's beside the point..).  My friend suggested I sign the slip, send it in today and then just call him in sick tomorrow for the trip.. lol.   Might have worked but I have a meeting before school tomorrow to discuss getting Autism added to his IEP and what all that entails (still makes no sense to me that  medical dx of autism isn't enough.. Stupid school systems).  So I have to be there bright and early which means I have to take all the kids with me.. ugh..

Dimples decided to solve it all for me last night when he announced his throat hurt..  Hmm, see he's getting sick, I guess he'll have to stay home.   Then he promptly puked all over my bed.  ugh.   And so he is home today with an icky tummy.  No field trip tomorrow..    Maybe I jinxed him??

Quite honestly, I don't think he would have enjoyed it. Sensory overload.  Too much noise, too many people  and distractions..   At least I'm not lying when I say he's sick now though. lol

Music soothes the soul


I know I haven't been around much.. I always promise that I'll make it back soon but it just doesn't happen..  Let me tell you, being pregnant with twins has made me into a lazy bum! lol!

I ran across this on FB and thought I'd share it with you..  One of my favorite all time artists is Bon Jovi... singing one of my fav. songs :




How can that not lift your spirits??

Bon Jovi is on my bucket list.. One of these days I will see him in concert...





And a little older stuff..  Look at that 80's hair :)
