I Know a Mommy May 14, 2006

Posted by Mike N. Cheese in Friends/Family, Parenting.

I know a mommy who loves her kids. Selfless in every way, she will play barbies, choo-choos, pollys, tea party, and candy land, even though she would rather be watching HGTV. She will also read kid books for hours on end.

This mommy will fix breakfast number one and number two, and even another bowl of cereal for her kids after she said that evening, "this is all I am making for dinner tonight, so you better eat it; no more food after this." She can't stand to see her kids suffer.

This is the same mommy that, when her husband comes home from work, could easily say, "I've had it–your turn!" But she doesn't. She will often let her husband unwind while she goes on to another thankless activity like giving the kids a bath.

Her husband could not stand having the kids in bed with him before its time to get up; this mommy bears it with no complaint. She does not have her own life and she does not seem to mind (most of the time).

All she can think about these days is getting pregnant–she loves it. She wants to get sick, get a big tummy, have difficulty walking and sleeping, and top it all off with four days in the hospital after major surgery, just so she can hold another bundle of joy.

She cooks, she cleans, she teaches, she loves. I won't tell you who this mommy is, but I love her.  Happy Mother's Day.


Its a Gas May 12, 2006

I always thought these types of things were funny. I mean, how much per gallon can you save by finding the absolute cheapest gas in your zip code as opposed to just the cheapest gas that you happened to drive by? Lets say its 5 cents. How much did you save in total? 50 cents? Less than a dollar, most likely.

Contrast your “savings” with the time you spent figuring out where the cheapest gas was and driving the extra distance to fill up.

I am a very frugal person, mind you. I just think there are better ways to save money than at the pump. No offence, Elliott.

Oliver is learning to wrestle.

Turns out our liberal learning institutions are wrong: boys and girls are different. Oliver grunts, hits, and wrestles. He loves balls, trash trucks, and tractors. Mabel, on the other hand, would have the cars talk to each other.

It's great.


Takedown May 7, 2006

Lakers were sent packing last night in game 7. It must have been tough to be up 3-1 and then lose game seven by over 30 points. Such a nice, respectable team, too. I almost feel bad for them.

I didn't get any comments from Californians on my last post, which either means no one reads my blog, or they suspected that I was right about the Suns. I certainly don't expect any comments now.

In other news, another Cinco de Mayo has passed us by, and, dispite illegal Mexican immigrants trying to shut down the country on Monday, I had no ill feelings and celebrated with family and friends. Breakfast: Filiberto's. Lunch: Kay-sah-dillas. Dinner: Rosa's followed by sangria.

You thought I was going to go into a "priceless" routine here, but I'm not.

Dear Californians… May 2, 2006

I'm not even that in to basketball, but I have to say: Suns rule, Lakers drool.

Come to Phoenix for game 7.

I’m Back May 1, 2006

If there is anyone out there who missed me, I'm back. I have been very busy remodeling my house and starting a new job.

Check out the new ads from apple here.  They're funny.   They feature one of Stephanie and my favorite actors who played Warren Cheswick on the TV show "Ed". 


I promise to write more.  Check in from time to time.
