You know what makes you feel old? Stumbling down stairs at 6:45 in the morning and seeing your 9 year old daughter feeding the cats while she waits for her Eggo waffles to toast. Then she says to you…”Wakey Wakey Eggs and Bakey! Today is Lollipop Day at school. I am lending Pookie a dollar. [...]
Giggles: Mom, are Gremlins real? BAGM: No, not real. Giggles: Then why do we have Gremlins? BAGM: Pretend animals are fun to have in stories and books. Giggles: Oh. (pause) Are dachsunds real? BAGM: Yes, dachsunds are a kind of litle dog. The long skinny weiner dogs. Giggles: Oh. I see her point.
Pookie listens to books on CD during quiet reading time at school, it helps keep him on task. Right now, he has a copy of “Peter Pan” narrated (I assume) by some British dude. So, lately, a good percentage of his echolalia comes out with an British accent. Its still annoying, but at least it’s [...]
I really WISH that I had taken a picture. I might make them re enact the event just so I can take their picture. They were that cute. Thursday was Twin Day at Geetle and Pookie’s school. Remember that one from last year? Well, last year Pookie and Geetle were in different schools, so Geetle [...]

Oh boy, what a day. We did A LOT of yard work today. I hate yard work, but I am willing to do it once a year. Today was the day. What do you think of the finished product? It all looks good to me, except we switched from red mulch to gold mulch this [...]
Geetle finished her first year of preschool! It almost seems hard to believe. Looking back, I actually don’t see any *real* super changes in her since the First Day, but I know they are there. She is 1.25 inches taller than the first day, that I know for sure! I don’t mean to say that [...]
It was a wild conversation and I can’t quite remember how it started, but I do remember sitting in Taco Bell with BAGD and the kids when Giggles asked BAGD if he still had the penis he was born with.
Giggles: Can we go to Pet Smart and get a pet mouse? BAGM: No, the cats would eat the mouse. Sorry. Giggles: I’ll get a big pet, like a horse! Geetle: Giggles, you can’t get a horse and besides, they don’t sell Horses at Pet Smart. Giggles: I can get a horse. I’m going to [...]
