No, its not a title of an obscure Dr. Suess book; its 3 posts squished into one because I'm lazy.
Good Mommy, Bad Mommy
Thursday was a long day for poor Sariah. We were going to have a nice quiet relaxing day, but I got a phone call early for an invite to book club, so we rushed over to Barnes and Noble to pick up the book (It was Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, I highly recommend it.) Since we were in the neighborhood, we stopped at Chuck E Cheese and met some friends there for "lunch" and play. Sariah had a blast! They had a slide and all kinds of things to climb on. She got to ride in the "vet's jeep" with one of our two tokens. She was mad when that stopped, she liked it so much. With our other token we got this picture "drawn" of us. I don't think I've been there since I was a kid, but it was really nice and not crowded at all on a Thurs. at 11am. We'd go back. Yay, good Mommy!
Boo, bad Mommy! Sariah's new bedroom furniture arrived after nap time (that's not the bad part), and I was holding Sariah on my left hip. As I turned around to show the delivery guy which bedroom, I cracked Sariah's head (accidently!) on the corner of the wall. I feel SOOOO bad! She cried for a little while, but then seemed okay. I did call the doctor as a precaution, and we watched her last night for any signs of concussion, but she's fine. The swollen goose egg on her forhead was so big as icky though! These pictures don't do it justice. So the moral of the story is, watch out for walls, bad Mommy!
Did ya'll hear about the earthquake in Illinois this morning? I did when I woke up. Its big news here, because I guess some people felt it all the way up here and called 911. Me? I slept through it.
Quack, quack, quack, cockadoodledoo!
We get lots of wild life in our backyard (which I'm not looking forward to keeping out of our garden.) Squirrels, song birds and rabbits are the most popular. These Mallard Ducks were a suprise though.
I guess I shouldn't be THAT suprised. The local minor league baseball team is the Mallards, but since we aren't really that close to any of the local lakes, I think these two were a little off course.
