13 Things About My Week



1. My daughter continues to struggle with sharing. It’s a damn good thing I have quick reflexes or she would have smacked the hell out of many of the other kids at Gymboree by now.

2. While listening to my Juno soundtrack, I discovered that Eli seems to be a huge fan of The Moldy Peaches. Who knew?

3. My daughter cannot be left unattended with a marker.


4. I thought that after you got your eyebrows waxed a few times that you were supposed to get used to the blinding pain. I guess I’m not there yet.

5. Soap opera funerals make cry embarrassingly hard.

6. I think it’s slightly unhealthy the amount of pleasure I get from birthday cake.

7. Other people’s kids bug me.

8. I don’t get SpongeBob Squarepants. Seriously, I don’t get it. And I think I have a decent sense of humor, but I just find SpongeBob annoying, not funny. Of course, my son thinks it’s the most hilarious television show he’s ever seen in his life.

9. My son could manage to find mud if we lived at The North Pole . . . and he would still track it all over my house.

10. I’ve learned to handle public embarrassment quite well. (See #1 and imagine Georgia screaming.)

11. I have yet to find the upside of spending $1000 to get the furnace fixed.

12. Even though I haven’t been a smoker for 15 years, I found that spending $1000 on the furnace made me want a cigarette.

13. No matter what time of the month it is, PMS is always an effective excuse to eat your weight in chocolate.

I love your list. lol. "Other people's kids bug you"-that cracked me up. (only because I understand)

And I happen to think eating your weight in chocolate makes us a better person. Right? ;)
Happy TT!

You have sweet daughter :D

Will you visit mine :D Thanks

It was red, it came in something like a tube, and mommy puts that stuff on all the time...she just thought it was like lipstick.
That's what little boys do...find mud that is. If we can't find it, we'll make it and then track it in.
Love the post. Kids are just the best.

Have a great TT

I always laugh at your optimism where your daughter is concerned. She's too young to share (don't let those other kids fool you. They're parents have threatened them into sharing) and she may never be old enough to be left alone with a marker! At least that's what I've come to accept about my boys.

Thea said...

Yeah, that $1000 deal definitely sucks...and Emma can't be left alone with markers either...

Georgia looks adorable. Bwhahahahah. How tough was that to get off her? I so enjoy your life Neila. I so enjoy every funny moment. Have a great TT. :)

We completely ban Spongebob from our house - I don't see the humor in it either. Can't stand it actually.

I'm with you on #13 - there's never a reason not to each chocolate! Especially after you've spent $1000 on the furnace...

Great list!

Lesley said...

Your blog layout is just adorable! I agree with your sponge bob observation. I just don't get it. It's not funny...but my two year old thinks he's the bomb.

Great, amusing list. Happy TT!

This list is so funny! That picture with #3, OMG! I hope that was washable, even then I'm sure it's not easy to get out!

Desert Songbird said...

I wouldn't trade with you for anything!

Samara Leigh said...

#1 & #3 - Too funny!

#4 - I am glad I'm not the only one who feels like her face is on fire everytime.

#6 - Ummm.... butter cream frosting

The Thursday Thirteen is hilarious, but I'm LOL at the Firestarter picture right now. Priceless indeed.
