hmmm... another great tradition fulfilled.
(oh no! i just noticed for years i've been putting the coin in the wrong spot. it's supposed to be in the slot opposite of my month born, i've had the wrong fortune for years! great, this is going to linger in my mind for awhile.)

i didn't know ANY of the names of peeps in the olympics
i was mocked when i didn't know some swimming person last week that was supposed to win a billion gold metals or something...
i thought it may be too much glory or athletes with big heads
but it did has made me teary every night and proud of these amazingly disciplined people

then out of know where she was awakened by a cop. they woman shook her and said nothing. i didn't see the sleep police approach us because she came from my back. it startled us both and then we were just confused. is it unlawful to fall asleep at the library? we've seen people do this act for eons of time. tara didn't look like she was homeless. i came to the conclusion that it was because she was using another chair to put her legs up and it's like the trax rule of keeping your feet off the seats. either way she was slightly frightened to fall asleep again but she did anyways. and unbeknown st to the both of us there's sleep police roaming the library. watch out!

i came prepared to share lars & the real girl for everyone to appreciate. so breia, kj, & i started the movie and since it was round two for me in two days for the movie i promptly feel asleep as i did the night before. as the good pseudo nanny that i am, i didn't wake up until juli & patrick were about to go to bed and breia & kj had already left. so anyone that would like to sign up for my services, please let me know. i may be able to sleep through all of your children's cries, fire alarms or people coming in and out of the house.
i unfortunately had this problem as a young teen babysitting my little sister, but i thought i grew out of it. obviously not. with my sister my parents had gone out for the evening and left their key to the house inside so when they returned they pounded on my windows and walls but i didn't even stir. they eventually went to a neighbor's to get a key since i couldn't be wakened.
so feel comfort in letting me watch your children :)
i do fill up cups with ice well for parties though
things that i haven't done in a while or ever include: changing a diaper(cloth ones at that), holding a baby for an extended amount of time, rocking a baby/toddler, acting like a fool to make one or two kiddos happy, reading books, singing "the wise man built his house upon a rock," and other such activities.
juli tells me i'm patient, i think i could probably work on that more. i think mothers are quite incredible. they have very little sleep especially when their college friends keep them up talking nightly but don't get up early in the morning to help with the kids, they have hips of steel, and are extremely compassionate and PATIENT! juli's kids are really good but as i think of all my friends with babinos i'm just simply impressed.
cheers to you moms!
