Once again, the week goes by...

Wow, where did my week go? I took the girls to see G-Force this week in 3-D. It sounded like a good idea. You know, cute Guinea Pigs out to save the world, etc. Well, much to my surprise, it was a rated PG movie. Of course, I didn't realise that until after we got home. I had seen tons of previews but they all had the cute parts in it, not the scary parts. Kaylee did get spooked a few times but we had her dolly with us and she used it "to block her eyes" as she said. Of course, once we got out of the theater and returned home, I looked the movie up on the internet and that's when I noticed the PG rating. No wonder people were looking at me with the little 3 yr old in tow! Oh well. At least there were other kids in the theater and she had her popcorn to keep her occupied anyway!

A super short Jennah story

Kaylee was being a total BEAR today - all day - no letting up at all. Even at dinner tonight, she was hounding Jennah about something. I can't tell you what. So Jennah in her seriousness looks at me and says "Mom, did you HAVE to have another baby?" Then after a short pause, she says: "You couldn't just keep your belly button shut could you." OMG, I almost fell off my chair laughing! She's so funny.

Kids are so...

...honest, yes, they are so honest most of the time. It mostly occurs in public where you don't want anyone to hear their honest opinion! Today, Jennah and I went out shopping for swim goggles. She's got a swim mask however the strap on it is constantly needing to be tightened, no loosened, no wait, it came off so it needs to be put back on and fixed! It's a pain in the butt to deal with. Just ask anyone that has been here while she's in the pool as they've all had their turn fixing and/or adjusting the stupid thing! Anyway, I finally came unglued yesterday while in the pool with company when, for the thousandth time, I had to adjust and fix it! I looked at Mike and said "That's it, I'm done with the cheap a$$ swim mask! My friend told me she bought her daughter's swim goggles at Target. I looked on-line but they didn't have the same brand listed so I checked Kohls. They had them on-line so we started our shopping trip at that store. Well, they had the Speedo brand but they didn't have the exact style that Jennah's friend had. We bought a pair (just in case) and then decided to head over to the new Target. The Target store is so new, it just opened TODAY! So, you can imagine how many shoppers were there! Needles to say most weren't in the swim gear aisle, they were in the back to school supplies area. Unfortunately, we had to pass by that area which is when Jennah gives her honest opinion - loudly mind you- and here it is: "Why do people wait until a store opens up on their first day to get backpacks and pencils for school?" "Don't they know that school hasn't started yet and they have time to go to an old store where it's less crowded and there's not so many noisy stinkin kids!" ... ahhhh, I love her! LOL
