The Beast Turns Five

Boom! That sure went fast.

She woke up this morning extremely upset that her panties still had the number "4" on them.  She wanted that fixed.  STAT.  Every girl's panties should reflect her age. I appreciate her bringing this to my attention.  I'm still searching for the "37" on mine ... I suggest you check yours as well. Let's make things right people.

A few facts about our Beast:
She LOVES to swing ...
If she see's a flower, she kills it ...
She taught herself how to swim this Summer ...
She overuses the words "actually" and "seriously" ... seriously, she does ...
She's strung out on McDonald's hash-browns and Slurpee's in the WORST way ...
She desperately needs your iTouch or your iPhone or your iAnything, please give it to her ...
She's right and you're wrong and the sooner you realize this, well ... she's a work in progress.

Oh man ... when she's not just ABSOLUTELY KILLING ME ... I sure love this kid!

Happy Birthday Beast!!!

Is Nothing Sacred?

Last night I had the pleasure of proofreading this little gem, so Ashy could turn it in to school today ...

If I had a nickel for every time our kids ratted us out "in writing" ...

I'm just saying.

But yeah ... we did head up to the dam to do a little investigating after the flash flood ...

We did notice a sign ... with some warnings ... and stuff ...

Jared and I did cross the forbidden gate, as Ashy stated ... for "no reason at all" ...

But nobody had to pay a fine.  Nobody received a 6 month sentence.  No cops ... etc, etc.

And I certainly didn't hear Ashy complaining when we gave her the green light to splash around in those puddles ...

Why don't you put THAT in writing and turn it in to your second grade teacher?

Yeah.  I didn't think so.

In other news ... this little piggy started preschool last week.  So far so good.

Although, the following conversation took place between Ashy and Anistyn the morning of her first day ...

Ashy: So you start preschool today, huh?
Anistyn: Yep!
Ashy: Well, have fun ... because next year you're gonna have to go EVERY day.  And then the next year they make you go even LONGER and then they stop giving you snacks and start making your recess shorter and it just gets worse and worse and WORSE! So have fun.
(Ashy's idea of a pep-talk)

(Actual picture of Anistyn's mind being blown)

She's writing her thesis on the importance of being a law-abiding citizen ... per Ashy's suggestion.
