7 Quick Takes Friday Volume 5

1. As many of you know, this week marked the  anniversaries of death of my Dad and Mom. Hopefully, this Quick Takes will offer a little comical relief to what has been a rather solemn week.

2. This past Tuesday, I hung the ” jewel” around Rick’s neck as he was sworn in as Grand Knight for his council at the Knights of Columbus Installation Mass.  The district deputy thanked (or maybe apologized)to the wives in advance for sharing their spouses.  I smiled and secretly thought, “Oh well, more time for me to blog!”

3. Potty training update:  “Bumblebee” was doing great with potty training until I had our dear friends watch the girls so I could go to the Knights of Columbus Officers’ Installation Mass.  I thought I packed her “in case” bag, instead I left in on top of our dryer on the way out to my van.  Of course, she had two accidents at our friends’ house.  I owe you big time Kathy!

4. Thanks to Carmen and some luck, I won a $50.00 gift card from Tropicana & Blogher.  I am rich, the card is burning a hole in my pocket! So far, I used it to treat the kids to Mc Donalds and buy “Ladybug” her next set of Bob Books!  

5. “Bumblebee” and her two-year old friend were innocently playing in the little house Papa gave her, or so I thought. 

When I  check on them, this is what I found:

6. While I was bathing the two-year olds, “Lady Bug” age 5 , who was hot, decided to cut her bangs like a boy. 

Here are the results of that hair cut:

7. As you can see there is never a dull moment around here!  I thank God for giving me something to laugh about this week. I am looking forward to a quiet weekend, amazingly with NOTHING  planned….yet!

    Wow! Those bangs turned out wonderful! They are almost striaght. YAY! for your Tropicana Gift card. Spoiled, girl you are spoiled. 😛 In a good way, not in the way that fruit sits on a shelf and rots. 😛

    2 Accidents? not so bad, it could have been so much worse. LOL

    Love the bangs and the cat that ate the canary expression with them.

    Like I don’t know how to deal with potty training accidents!

    And if this is your first “unauthorized” haircut, you’re doing better than me. I lost count.

    Love the haircut picture. My little Johnny did it the morning of Kindergarten school pictures–I think he was jealous of the time I spent fussing with his sister’s hair that morning. I love that school picture of him. Good for Bumblebee on the potty training. It takes a while. You’ll get better at remembering everything just about the time she doesn’t need the spares anymore.

    You lost both parents in the same week? How tough! Sounds like you are tougher, though. Love the dirty girl picture. That reminds me of my childhood!
