The Good, The Bad & The Ugly


The Good

The Hubs is feeling better and no one else has gotten sick yet.  I’m not declaring us disease free yet because, as my dear friend Karin (who is a nurse) informed me earlier, we’re not out of the woods yet. I should have coughed on her for being so darn practical about the matter.

The Bad

We took the kids to the store today so they could buy presents for each other. I took Beaner with me, The Hubs had Scorch.  2 minutes into our trip, the Bean (who was sitting in the shopping cart) took her boots and socks off.  Wonderful, I am that white-trash mom who lets her kids go barefoot in the store during winter. Awesome.  Then on the way out, Scorch threw an almighty fit because we didn’t get him anything on this trip other then a present he couldn’t even open yet.  The injustice was just too much for my 4 year old and he made sure the whole store knew it!

The Ugly
I have yet to start my wrapping.  I don’t like to wrap and quite frankly, I stink at it.  I would say it looks like a blind 4 year old wrapped my gifts, but that would be an insult to blind 4 year olds.  Let’s hope our friends & family open their presents so quickly they don’t notice, k?
