I guess I'm responsible for the way they are

My kids have been in rare form lately, especially my girls.....

Kady was playing with Little Nicky and maybe she speaks some special Nickese that I don't, because I never heard the child ask for a cookie. Yet she swore he did. "But Momma, he weawwy wants a cookie!" she exclaimed. I said, "Well, Kady, I want a million dollars." She rolled her eyes and said, "Hey, weave me outta dis. He wants a cookie and you want a miwwion dowwas...maybe da two a' you shouwd tawk."

---------------------------------

I waxed my upper lip last Friday and for some strange reason, no matter if I do it at home or have it done at the salon, I always have a massive zit breakout afterwards. Either I have a Tom Selleck moustache or revisit my 9th grade acne, my choice. Well, today there is a real doozy sittin' pretty over my upper lip. And it's in that really tender space where you can't really pick it because it makes your eyes water and your nose tickle and causes you to kind of shudder if you even breathe hard. So pretty much, I'm leaving it alone. To take over my face and quite possibly inhabit my sinuses. Abby came in to ask me a question and after I answered she turned around to walk off. Then she turned back around and peered at my face, scrunched up her nose and said, "Oh. My. Gosh. Is that a ZIT??" I sighed and said, "Yes, hateful child. It's a zit." She made another face and said, "I thought old people didn't get zits like that." Then she shrugged. "Well, it goes great with your gray hair."

Oh yeah! Ya gotta love smearing equal amounts of anti-wrinkle and anti-acne stuff on your face, or at least I find it to be one of life's cruel jokes. Again, your girls have to be close to the ages of mine. I don't know about Abby, but if I would just leave the running of this household to Natalie it would go SO MUCH BETTER.
In her mind, anyway. We've got a new casino opening down the road from here pretty soon and all I can say is "Don't tempt me child, don't tempt me." I'm sure DHS would understand me leaving all the kids alone with her in charge, right?

If it's any consolation, I started going grey when I was 25 :-( .

Now, as my dear wife points out "your moustache is going grey too".

LMAO! Whenever my three year old tells me she wants something (I want a ball, I want a pop, I want a new bike!) I just say, “Yeah well I want to be rich and thin. Whenever that wish granting fairy shows up you let me know, OK?” Makes hubby laugh, but the little one just looks at me as if I sprouted a second head.

Thank God above I am not the only one with the wax the lip get a zip problem. What the hell is up with that anyway? I guess the only good thing is that my stache is blonde and not easily seen. I can let it go if I want and forgo the zits.

Melessa, oh yes, Abby is quite convinced that I am a total moron most of the time and that she could do a much better job raising her siblings. I can't imagine what she is going to put me through when she is 17...

Hehe...this week we've sent the kids to VBS so we could hit the casinos. How bad is that? :)

Lantern, my dad was going grey at 18 and was nearly bald before 40. My gray attacked virtually overnight when I turned 27. Heredity sucks.

Cazzie!!!, kids and old people...you've said that here before. Gotta love 'em both.

Real Kidd, my theory is that the moustache hairs are clogging up my pores and when the pores are cleared after a waxing they must purge themselves. I of course, have no medical proof ....
