Since GMail Hates Me


Hi Dad,

  I know I'm the first choice for Mother Of Year/Daughter Of The Year since I am just now sending you the childrens' wish lists. I like to procrastinate wait patiently until I am ready. I've been like this for thirty some odd years though. Ahem, right so, here's the Dictator's list. She was very specific. Please try not to navigate from the particular characters listed. It could cause eternal damnation in my house. I could do without that right now. Let's at least wait until they are teenagers. Moving on........

Item #1 - 
This entertaining item is the Disney Princess Magical Jewels* game for the Nintendo DS gaming system. I could not find it on the Walmart website but Target has it for $19.99

Item #2 - 
Here we have The Princess and The Frog Deluxe Bag from Mattel. It retails for $19.88 at Walmart and $16.99 at Target. Those prices seem a little ass backwards but that's what the websites say so that's what goes on here.

Item #3 - 
Corrine from Barbie and the Three Musketeers. Please note, it's CORRINE. Not the others. I don't ask, she don't doesn't tell. $17.87 at Wallyworld and $19.00 at Tarjay

Item #4 - 
A Disney Princess Blanket. This is the only item that you could have several choices of. She would prefer a blanket with multiple princesses but at this point in the ballgame, she'll take what she can get. I would imagine Wally and Tarjay have something like this.

Item #5 - LAST ITEM COVETED FOR THIS YEAR (until 6 minutes from now where I will miraculously have a teenage girl with raging PMS who never wanted a damn princess game and what the hell was the worst mother in the word - ooh! ME!- thinking? Ahem.)
Disney Princess Baby Cinderella
 This is the prime example of one to NOT deviate from. I tried to get her to agree to the baby Ariel since they both have read hair. That was not met with the excitement I was hoping for. I instead saw a glimpse of my impending trauma in about ten years. It's looking awesome (insert copious amounts of sarcasm here please) This charming brat doll can be acquired this holiday season for only...... who knows how much. I don't know because the Wally and Target websites are both out and I'm too lazy to call the stores. Let's just say, I'm sure you could get it at either store.

So Dad and Mom, there ya go. The Dictator's wish list, photos and all. I hope this helps you out. You'll note that there are absolutely no irritating, loud, obnoxious, or damaging  to the auditory system toys on the list. Please keep it this way. Thanks so much!!!

The boy's list is coming next. Please be patient (ha! that's funny, be patient since ya know, it took like 4 weeks for me to get the list to you. What? No? Not funny?)

Love and Hugs,
The Kid

*if those damn magical jewels will tell me where the hell the spellcheck is on the the new editor for blogspot that would be AWESOOOME!

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…
