If something's missing....check the garbage can

I make it a point every morning to make sure Zachary has his sippy cup before we head to my mom's for the day. Zachary had it last night, and the last time I saw it, it was mixed up with all of his toys scattered on the floor. Well, this morning I am of course packing his diaper bag, and lo and behold, I cannot find the sippy cup. Curtis and I are looking in the kitchen, the family room and Zachary's room for it, but we cannot find it!

After a few minutes of searching I say to Zachary, "Zachary, where's your water?" He takes a few steps, stops, looks around the apartment, and then he goes over to the garbage can and opens the lid and looks inside. I walk over and look inside and......there is his sippy cup!!! Curtis and I both just laughed. It was pretty funny. I was actually quite surprised that he remembered he had thrown it in there.

Our little adventure this morning makes me wonder how many other things he has thrown in the garbage can that we didn't know about and are now long gone to the garbage field.

There is definitely never a dull moment with our Zachary around!!

Nine Words Women Use

My sister-in-law emailed this to me, and I probably shouldn't find it so funny because I am a woman, but I think it is hilarious. This is almost 100% what I mean when I say these words to Curtis. Enjoy!

#1: Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

#2: Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

#3: Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

#4: Go Ahead: This is a dare, NOT permission. Don't Do It!!

#5: Loud Sigh: This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statment often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

#6: That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

#7: Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - this is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'...that will bring on a 'whatever').

#8: Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying *!@% YOU!

#9: Don't Worry About It, I Got It: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response, refer to #3.

I hope this brings smiles to women's faces everywhere!!! (If it offended anyone, please forgive me.)

Mother's Day

I know this is a day late, but I wanted to say Happy Mother's Day! to all you amazing moms out there. I LoVe being a mom!!! Zachary has brought so much joy into my life and I wouldn't trade him for anything. I cannot wait to have more kids. (hint, hint Curtis).

I also wanted to say "I love you" to my mom. She of course won't read that, but I want to tell everyone how wonderful she is and how much I love her. She has been through a lot in her life, and suffers from severe depression, but she has gotten through the tough times and is such an amazing person. I could not have asked for a greater Mom or a better person to watch Zachary while I have to work. I love her so much!!

Once again, Happy Mother's Day to all you fabulous mother's, and here's to many more great ones!!!
