10 on Tuesday

1. Yes, I realize I've become a crap blogger lately. I'm sure the 2 people who read it have stopped but I assure you, there is really nothing you're missing.

2. If you are one of the 2 followers of my blog then please keep reading because I promise I'll get back on track!

3. Don't you hate it when you wake up in the morning and go to make baked beans in your crockpot only to realize you never soaked them last night? Happens to me. every. time. Right now they're on the stove boiling to try and get me back on track.

4. Tonight is my first night back to work. I'm going to be working my old shift for the summer which some might say sucks because Adam is off and it's summertime (ie. fun vacation time) but for us it works out that I go back when he's home and when he goes back (September) I'll probably stop again but that isn't for sure yet. We have lots of years ahead of us for summer vacation fun and for now, me working to make up for his non tutoring time is what works for us.

5. Yesterday was Canada Day and it was rained out by our shitty friend, Mother Nature. We still donned our Canada Day shirts (I had bought the kids Canada Day shirts awhile ago and was insistent they wear them) and took a little family drive even though we had to keep the windows closed to keep the rain out. Henry didn't care and Mya seemed ok when we told her the parade had been cancelled. Henry's shirt says "Canada rocks, eh?" and Mya's says "I heart Canada"

6. Anyone want to come be our official summer lawn mower? We'll pay crappily but we (Adam) will appreciate it!

7. Sometime this week we will (we WILL!) get Henry's haircut so he can stop looking like an old man with a comb over. Pictures to come!

8. Jessica and Sam are coming today to hang out with their favorite people. Well, I'm sure we're on the list of their favorite people. Well, ok maybe the bottom of the list. Yay company!

9. Why do children always have to take turns waking up early? Do they plot this the night before? Mya had been doing really well and Henry sucked and now it's 7:30am and Henry is still sleeping but Mya has been awake since 6am. Just one time I want everyone to sleep in at the same time. I'm sure birds would be singing and the sun would be shining when we all woke up. Just like in the movies.

10. Henry blows kisses now and waves. We've been trying to get him to say things like "cat", "mum", "dad" and what does a kitty say? "meow" but he doesn't cooperate. I am, however, convinced that he does know how to do those things. He just refuses. Over the weekend we were at Elisa and Marianne's and asked him to blow kisses. First time, he performs just like a little puppet, got a unanimous "awww!" from the room and proceeded to do it 100 times. If he gets the right reaction, I'm convinced he can do any of the things we ask for.
