A Little Of This And That

That whole 365 blogging? Yeah no.

I was laughing so much watching this. My kids started laughing with me but in their defense, they couldn't hear anything and they wouldn't know what was being said anyway.

Anyone else play Animal Crossing for the GameCube? Damn Nintendo for making it Wii compatible. Guess who has to use a timer to play it? Besides the boy?

It's fascinating the differences between my son and my daughter. He never had pretend conversations with himself. He would make up stories and songs with us, and still does but Peanut? She's sitting on the stairs right now talking to her babies and making up a story for them so they'll go to sleep. She does this all the time. Maybe I'm just so used to how he is that to see her in a different light is, well, enlightening. (I realize that whole thing probably made no sense. Oh well. It made sense to me.)

I've heard that girls do tend to have a more vivid imagination than boys. I don't know myself - so I prefer to think that Peanut is just exceptionally bright. :-)

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…


Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
