Confess, at one point or another, you have thought "I totally could be a serial killer". Especially after watching an episode of Dexter :)

One night, very very late, I was driving home from college, exhausted. I called my then fiancé (now husband) and had a conversation to keep me awake. The convo happened to be about how I could "totally be a serial killer", next thing I know BAM, I hit a dear. I freaked out, luckily a cop came by, found the dear, which wasn't dead....then she shot it. I cried and cried. over a dear, and I wasn't even the one that killed it. There goes my grandiose dreams of murdering sprees :)

Indentical twins totally waste their opportunity to maim and dismember people. Same DNA, look the same, etc. basically they have a built in alibi! Why the heck not? I mean except for the whole "thou shall not kill" rule and all. so, if you're and identical twin and you have the urge, get your better half in on it. It worked on TV!

These crazy things come into my head after watching an old episode of law and order and then hearing about that new movie The Purge.

The Purge. That's some good shit right there. 1 night of the year you get a free pass to whatever you want?!? Count me in!!! Alas, I've got these kids that I need to take care of, so I suppose I'd hunker myself down in a bunker and let the day pass.... But I might just have a wish list to pass on to someone partaking in the festivities ;)

Any thoughts on this topic? I'd love some comments and discussion!

 
 

Lily: the opposite of yes is no?

Dad: correct

Lily: the opposite of shirt is no shirt

Dad: .....I guess so??

What is going on in that brain?!

 
 
Like yell at my kid....for something your kid does all the fucking time.
Logan is rambunctious, we know that...and i think we handle it very well thank you very fucking much.

This kid.....oh man this kid. She lives a couple houses down, when she moved in, Lily was so excited to have a girl friend only a couple houses down. That was short lived. right from the beginning, there was bad behavior. Hitting, manipulation, attitude, not respect for adults, and inappropriate language/gestures (not cussing, more sexual in nature). She even pulled her pants down and showed my kids her vagina. Of course, she lied, told her mom that she thought she tinckled in her pants and was checking. No fucking way.She is constantly getting in trouble at preschool for hitting and acting out and such. So, you're thinking "why the hell are you still allowing them to play together". That is a good question. I feel that my kids GOOD behavior rubs off on her, which it has, her mother has told me that. AND Lily really needs a girl friend to play with. Also, showing them the difference between good decisions (my kids) and bad decisions (this girl) is great. I even wrote a request to the school asking my kids not to be in the same class as her next year, as i see that she is surely going to be a bully and bad influence. My kids on't know how to be mean and i don't want them not meeting NICE kids because they go right to her because they already knew her.

This kid is a monster, but I feel bad for her. Single mom, living with a man (who apparently has had repeated problems with law for drunken domestic abuse with his ex-wife), that has a minimum wage job and has only been sober for 3 years (with a 5 year old kid). I mean, she even has come over to my house because to bathe because the shitty boyfriend didn't pay the utility bills and they had no hot water to bathe the kid....So, I have her come over, watch her every so often when her mom has to run out to the store, even offered to pick her up from school next year and letting her hang out here until an adult came home. Well, fuck that now....

Yes, I let me kids play outside unsupervised. Yes, they do not have a bed time in the summer. And yes, I am OK with these choices. Kids need to play, get dirty, explore, be confident on their own and not be scared of the damn world. It's annoying to see these parents hover over their kids, like they are morons, like they can't make decisions on their own, like they are made of fucking glass. My kiddos have rules, obviously. They aren't allowed to talk to adults that are not on my aprroved list of people in the neighborhood. They cannot go into any houses without asking me first. They can't go into the street, and there are boundaries on the sidewalk that ends the approved area of play. Of course they had broken the rules. They've knocked/rang door bells when they shouldn't have, (Logan) and were appropriately punished. Lily got caught in the street (don't worry, it was in our circle, not the street street) and couldn't ride he bike for a week (torture)

So now for the yelling. After dinner Logan asked if he could go play with the neighbor girl. I said yes. About 5 minutes later he came home in tears, crying and so upset set..... He went over there, knocked, and i guess he didn't knock loud enough. He walked in (as she fucking does at our house all the damn time) Well, the bastard boyfriend yelled out Logan to "get the hell out of his house". How is that an appropriate fucking response? Have i done that to their kid when she just comes in, with out even knocking? No way! I don't yell at other people's kids, fucker. THEN when i went there to have Logan apologize for coming in, he bastard yells at me. I told him that his response isn't appropriate for the situation and that he shouldn't have yelled at someone else child. He's god damn luck Damon wasn't home. No, Jersey Jessica didn't come out. I don't bring her out in front of my kids.

fuck them
fuck that brat
fuck that drunk
 
 

Today I "made" s'mores pops.

I've been so excited to make these, I bought the ingredients last week in preparation :)

Basically you get premade dough, cut some squares, put chocolate, marshmallow and a stick inbetween two squares. Whatever, easy.

Dough went easily enough, then I placed the chocolate and marshmallows on top of the square, now for the failures

1) Recipe called for 10 marshmallows, yeah right, only 6 fit.

2) you are supposed to fold up sides of these dough pieces and press with a fork making this cute ravioli type closure.... only there isn't enough dough along the edges to make a full seal. I had to reduce the amount of chocolate from 3 pieces to 2 and the marshmallows to 4. Ugh.

At this point I got annoyed and was not being gentle with my dough, my husband has to step in. I proceeded to make s'mores in my mouth with the extra pieces of chocolate and marshmallow that should have been in the pops... Teehee

We slapped some egg whites on the tops of these babies and cooked at 12 minutes. Later we enjoyed a mildly chocolatey, not at all marshmallowy, dough pouch.

Her are some photos
