Pride

This may go without saying, but my kids drive me batty. So needy and messy and loud- damn, they are loud! Today, they had their yearly physicals and shots- maybe that will shut them up! I know that's mean- too bad.

Anyway, all of my kids are healthy, not remotely obese and brave little suckers! Each of them got a shot (Beebs, 4, got 4!) and not one tear shed! I gotta say, I was pretty proud. Especially when my sister called and said that my niece, 5, cried while getting hers yesterday- everything's a competition!

That is an odd thing to be proud of, isn't it?

Well, my son's report card for the last quarter had 4 'D's (I call it the 4-dimensional report card and it pisses him off). My 8 year old and 10 year old have been threatening each other's life for the last month and they're scaring me. And today, when the Dr. asked Beebs if she knew her ABC's (that she's known since she was 2!), she sang, "A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,How are you today!"

Not my proudest moment.

So, today, I think I'm going to hold onto the fact that they didn't cry during their shots. I know it's little, but it's all I got! Now I think I know what 50cent's mom feels like.

Not funny, not funny, not funny, yet...hilarious. If Owen (the three year old) gets out of the house with clothes on, I don't give a shit if they are backwards, ugly, shoes on the wrong feet, whatever, he has clothes on. It IS the small things, for sure.

Poor 50cents momma...she's so sad he'll never be a Dolla.

Not looking forward to taking the 2yr old in for shots. You win there for sure. Mine will be crying. Loudly.

You take what you can get..... that's my motto! Everyone thinks my daughter is perfect and I know the day is coming when she's gonna totally screw up and embarrass the shit out of us....... I know it's coming!

thank god it's not just my kids. Sometimes I have to wonder what the hell I'm doing wrong, and then I find a great blog like yours.

Carry on!
