my house, circa 7am…

life is very, very cruel…because i had already taken isabella to pee (another dry morning! when do you think i can put her to bed in underwear?), filled her sippy cup, found her missing baby, found the missing the remote, and taken a shower. boo.

i so wasn’t kidding a while ago when i mentioned that my parents’ dog Roxee has better manners than my children.
you have to watch this video that my brother-in-law took.

Grandma Doris told us about this video last night. the kids and i have watched it about 45 times since. my family has come a little late to the whole skype game…but we are LOVING it. we now all – finally – have cameras and we’re skype-ing daily. it’s AMAZING. if you use it, you know what i’m talking about…and if you don’t, you best be getting on that. it’s free. and you can see people! while you talk to them! imagine! (i know, ultra. new. wave.)

and if you needed another reason to think that i’m awesome…i made this last night while i watched American Idol (come on over to Juice for my great big AI recap and snarkiness)

blanket

oh yeah, baby. (ps. i have no idea why the size looks all wonky. it really looks much more normal in person.)

  7. I saw a picture last night of a kid that looked EXACTLY like Isabella! But now I can’t remember where I saw it. At all. Or maybe I saw a kid that looked like her? Not sure.

    Wow… best comment ever. Officially.

  9. I HATE waking my sleeping babies in the winter and it’s so dark and so cold. Lucky for me and my feeeelings, The Baby gets up at 5:30-6 every morning on her own. Bleh.

  10. My first dog used to eat corn on the cob like that…it was hilarious! We would hold the edges and he would move from side to side until he was finished, then he would take the cob away like a bone. I wish we had a video of it!

  13. Yay for Roxee! Not to brag (okay, totally bragging) but I taught my dogs to do that. It ain’t easy.

    And I love the blanket!

  14. I gave Oliver an apple today and he ate half of it and then threw it on the consignment store floor. Roxee would never do that.

    That blanket is awesome!

  15. Yeah, dogs have a few skills up on small children. More than a few, maybe.

  20. I love the new design!!!

    The dog is wonderful…and your mom is FAB!!! I guess your husband believed in that thing that says if you are considering marrying someone, look at her mother…let’s you know how she will turn out!!!

    If that is true, you will be fabulous in a gray skirt with hair perfectly coiffed, perfect hands and a lovely voice! And lovely hardwood floors!!!
