He's plotting to get rid of me....

"Maybe we should get flowers for Daddy's new wife"

As told to me by Nic at Safeway today. Hmmm....

Maybe it's time to start buying Kidz Bop....

Nic has recently become obsessed with this song:

Both kids love to dance so I showed them this video and they were hooked, so I bought it on iTunes and they listen to it quite often. In fact, as I type this, I can hear Nic singing it in his tent. I generally by the radio edits for songs so I don't have to turn it down for bad words or explain why they shouldn't say it. Unfortunately, it seems to be kosher to say "Bitch" on the radio now and it's even on the "clean" versions of songs. So I really shouldn't have been surprised to hear Nic sing "Yeah you, PMS, like a bitch, I would know" yesterday.

Oops. Obviously not my best mommy moment. (although I promise you there are worse moments out there)

Now I understand why people just buy Kidz Bop...

For posterity, here are some other songs on their play list right now, thus ensuring that I am totally sick of them. ;)

So What by P!nk
Let it Rock by Kevin Rudolph
She Bop by Cyndi Lauper

Further proof that having kids makes you stupid...

This morning I was replacing burned out light bulbs in various ceiling fans throughout the house. When I got to the fan over the kitchen table I spent quite a bit of time trying to get a bulb out that seemed to be stuck. After a minute or two I got the bulb out and grabbed a new bulb to put in, but it would not screw in at all. After turning the bulb for a few minutes, trying different angles, and getting angrier by the minute I realized one important detail....

I was trying to screw in the bulb by turning it to the left.
