People Never Cease to Amaze Me...

Did anyone else read this? I mean really? This is why I believe people should be implanted with birth control when born until they can prove they can be a good parent

A ? For All You Real World Watchers...

When the heck did Katelyn (the transgender girl) get the ghetto accent? I was just wondering.

Too Funny To Get Mad

I was working hard at finishing one of my online classes the other day. Kennedy was out with my mom, Mason was napping and Hayden was sitting next to me. She got up to throw something in the trash. A few minutes went by and she hadn't come back. I yelled to her and asked her what she was doing. Her response was " give me a minute mom". (never a good sign!) So I went into the kitchen and this is what I found. She had taken the box of baking soda out of the fridge, dumped it on the floor, stripped down and started making snow angels! I am so glad I had my camera in hand. She did have to sit in time out but I'm sure she didn't take me very serious because I couldn't stop laughing.

(please excuse the black bars but you never know what kind of weirdos are lurking around here!)

3rd of the day

I got the idea for this post after reading the comments on Loras latest blog entry. I am fascinated by dreams and nightmares. I have alot reoccurring nightmares. Here are a few

1. when i was living in Philly i had a reoccurring nightmare that there was a tidal wave in the Delaware River that leveled the whole city.

2. after 911 (still living in philly) i dreamed that there was a terrorist attack on the subway while I was on it and I couldn't escape

3. i have a lot of dreams about bees flying up my nose

4. when I was a teenager, a bug crawled in my friends moms ear and she had to have surgery to get it removed. I had nightmares about that for years.

5. the most common one that I have is about people breaking into my house. I had this one just last night. In my dream, I was pushing all of the furniture against the doors and windows before i went to bed just to make sure no one could get in.

What are some of your dreams/nightmares?

Here is a fun site about dreams

Where do kids come up with this stuff? (some people may find this offensive)

School is out today and Kennedy has her friend Lauren over. We love having her over because she is a really sweet kid and they play great together. I just finished giving the girls a bath and this is how the conversation went:

Lauren: Miss Nicole, can I borrow some of Kennedy's clothes?

Me: Sure. Go upstairs and pick something out.

Kennedy: Can you get me something Lauren?

Lauren: I'm not your maid!

Kennedy: Well you look like a maid!

Lauren: Just because I look Mexican doesn't mean I am a maid! (she is half white and half Korean)


Hayden is driving me nuts! She has been whining since she woke up. I am trying to get her dressed and she doesn't want to wear anything I pick out. She keeps telling me she wants a ferris wheel! WHAT THE EFF DOES THAT MEAN? Toddlers can be so frustrating sometimes! I might need to spike my coffee this morning

Two Five

I have also been tagged a zillion times with this meme. I am supposed to tell 25 random facts about myself. This might take a while, I'm pretty boring!

1. I am terribly claustrophobic. I hate driving through tunnels. My heart even starts to beat faster when I see people on TV in tight spaces.

2. If I could take everyone I loved with me, I would move to Oregon. I love it there.

3. My all-time favorites movies are Almost Famous and The Goonies.

4. My celebrity crushes are Chelsea Handler (hot & funny-can't beat it) and Andre Benjamin- you know, the weird guy from Outkast. My husband thinks I'm crazy. He is not even that good looking but there is just something about him.

5. I think my husband is the sexiest man on the planet. (even though he needs a little smacking around sometimes)

6. My dad passed away when I was 14. I miss him more today than I ever have. I didn't have a traditional wedding because he wouldn't be there to walk me down the aisle. I hate the my kids will never know him.

7. When I was younger, my dream was to be a photographer for National Geographic. My dad use to keep every issue of the magazine. I could sit there and flip through them for hours.

8. I hope my three girls stay best friends their whole life. Watching them interact (when they aren't bickering) is such a joy. It makes my heart do flip flops!

9. My two best friends mean the world to me. I am so inspired by both of them. Tavia is a fantastic mom, wife and friend. If there is anyone on Earth who is just all all around fantastic person, it is her. Tesa is one of the strongest people I know. She does it all. She has a successful job, runs her house and still makes time for lots of girl-fun with me. And, she is getting ready to go to dental school. I don't know how she does it!

10. Another place that makes my heart skip a beat is the Florida Keys. I use to go twice a year and every time I get on that two lane road in Key Largo, all my stress melts away. And I cry every time I have to leave!

11. Since becoming a parent I have become a total sap.

12. I bite my nails and I kind of enjoy it!

13. I have about 11,000 pics on my computer right now. And that is after it crashed once and I lost everything

14. I miss developing my pictures in a real darkroom. Don't get me wrong-digital photography is amazing. I learn something new everyday. But, I miss the smell of the chemicals, the glow of the red light and watching that image first appear. I turned my bathroom in my apartment in philly into a make shift darkroom. I would stay in there 8 hours sometimes developing pictures and listening to music. I still have all my equipment and would love to set it up again when my kids are all off to school.

15. this is starting to get hard- I was a gymnast for 14 years. And I was really good. I never placed below 2nd. I am still really flexible.

16. I have a small shoe addiction. I have definitely passed that trait along to my daughters. They might have more pairs of shoes than I do.

17. I am also addicted to blogging. I think I have 41 on my bloglines that I read regularly.

18. I am in love with technology. If it were possible to make out with it, I would have an orgy with my camera, laptop and ipod!

19. I hate running with a passion but would still like to run a marathon one day.

20. I have always wanted to sky dive. The thought of it scares the snot out of me but I swear I will do it one day!

21. I miss living in Philly and going to the book store late at night when I had nothing to do and looking at all the photography books.

22. I also miss sitting in Rittenhouse Square with my Pub girls between shifts on fridays.

23. One thing that always makes me cry-when I see a child crying out of happiness.

24. I did it at the Southernmost Point in The US and got caught by the cops. Luckily, we didn't get in trouble!

25. I love watching my kids grow but it terrifies me at the same time.
