Are you ready for it???

Today is a good one for you Disney trivia buffs (meaning you Michelle and Allen). Today I learned Boo's REAL name.

It's Mary! Apparently, you can see it quickly on her drawings. Also, the child who does her voice is named Mary so they just named her that.

So that's what I learned today.

Sunday Musings

So I have the house to myself this afternoon...which should be a dream condition but I'm bored. I should be napping due to the pathetic level of sleep that I've gotten this week but it hasn't worked out.

Instead, I've come to realize that your mother is do learn something new every day. Various things that I've learned this week: That I need a Blackberry, that dogs can be swallowed whole by alligators, and that bugs are so bad in Canada that they actually sell hats with nets to ward off the little buggers.

My goal is to continue to share with you the various things that I learn throughout the day cuz let's face it, my life is very boring and I really don't have much else to write about.

Hard Day

Yesterday was a hard day. It was Natalie's baptism. Again, Gage thought I was "Auntie Becky" Then this time, Cecilia called me Mommy a couple of times. But I held it together and reminded everyone that I'm good ol' Auntie Kristine. When did I start to look like Becky so much?!?! Bill is doing really well with the girls and it was good to see everyone.

Didn't help that I was sick for the Baptism. I made the mistake of cheating on SouthBeach and having a shake at Topsfield Fair on Sat night. OOPS!!!

Right now I'm watching the Duggars...they save their first kiss for their wedding day!!! God love those religious folks. I remember my wedding day...when Randy and I shared our first kiss (HA, HA, HA!!)

When did we get soooo old!

So I just got back from "Starbucks" night with the girls. First off, we didn't go to Starbucks. Melanie had to switch to Joes because baby boy Fiore was hungry! Secondly, we went to Joe's and we didn't get drinks...even the yummy sounding S'more-tini!!! I had an Earl Grey, Carrie had a coffee, and Melanie ate. SERIOUSLY...when did we get so old?????

This also marked the first time I've ever been to Joe's that I didn't DIVE into the bread/dip. I didn't even look twice at it. This darn South Beach is working!!!!

Let's be Dolphins!

So last night we started back at swimming lessons and water aerobics. In an attempt to avoid being at the Y 3 nights a week, I decided to do my water aerobics class and Aisling's swim lessons back to back. That's all well and good but I realized half way through the day when Michelle mentioned dinner that I hadn't planned out when Aisling would actually EAT. We didn't get home until 8pm. So being the "good" mommy that I am, I gave her one of those to-go packs of cereal and a drinkable yogurt in the car on the way. I really need to come up with a better option. She came home at 8pm after swimming for an hour and a half and was hungry again. So she had a little bowl of homemade the time she was done that and had a bath, it was after 9pm. Which means AGAIN, she didn't get to bed until after 10pm

As an aside, Miss Claudia made us do that rather pornographic dolphin move again in water aerobics...which means Aisling saw it and was doing it during her "free swim" Thanks Claudia. I absolutely threatened her that when she had children, I'm going to teach them naughty things!
