Race me but pace me!

I took the girls swimming tonight. They decided it would be fun to have a race.  Hailey is 6. She learnt to swim this past year.  Olivia is 11. She has been on the competitive swim team for years.
And so it begins. On your mark, get set, go! As we start off swimming, Hailey yells, “Ok, here are the rules. If Olivia starts winning, it’s no longer a race.”

Tooth Fairy

Olivia and now Hailey have left very polite notes to the tooth fairy to kindly leave the money and not take the tooth. When Hailey’s 2nd tooth fell out, she exclaimed the next morning “So cool, you just have to leave the note once to the tooth fairy. She remembers every time after that!”

Silly Self Help

I have developed a little drinking problem. A got a gift of mini chocolates shaped like wine bottles filled each with a tsp of alcohol. It’s quite enjoyable actually. The wine rack it comes in is cute.


Is there a support group for liquor filled chocolates or do I just have to snack responsibly?

This Won’t Hurt!

You remember on the Carroll Burnett show when Tim Conway plays a dentist and stabs himself with the Novocain numbing needle?
I was holding Catherine as a baby before her shot and said “don’t worry. this won’t hurt a bit.”  Dr. Eisman missed and shot himself in the thumb. I said to Catherine “see, I told you it wouldn’t hurt!”
Not kidding! True story. I was deadpan when I told her “see I told u it wouldn’t hurt”. He was shocked and said he couldn’t believe he missed her arm. I lost it and had the giggles the rest of the appointment.
Too bad Catherine was too small to remember but I know the Dr. remembers. It was the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen! The man never smiles and this had him so puzzled, he just couldn’t understand how he missed.  He missed her arm entirely. I lost it and still to this day giggle thinking about it!
