Christmas shopping is gonna be the death of me.

Thought I would check in today. It's December,just in case you didn't get the memo. Around here that means lots of shopping. Just when my baby gets all grown up it seems that we are invaded by little ones. So once again Fisher Price and Little People are invading my home.

First there is my little Ivy Love and her brothers. That girl is all about princesses, such a fun age. Although I have to tell you now that she talks better none of our secrets are safe! She's so funny trying to figure out how I fit into her family- in case you didn't know, Ivy is my daughter's sister- she still occasionally calls me Mom because she's not sure who the hell I am.

Last time she was here we were reading in bed and she got excited about her book and said "Mom- and then a bunch of stuff about kitties that I didn't understand." I murmured approvingly and then she said "Are you Mom?" I laughed and told her I'm sisters mom, but I'm her Aunt Missi. She said, "Ok, Mom." She really is talking much better but for some reason refuses to say her sister's name, she calls her Jessie. At first we were like who the hell is Jessie, but then she said " Sister's Jessie" and rolled her eyes at me. Whatever kiddo.

Then there is little miss Liliana, she is my daughter's friends baby, and such a sweetie. But finally, there is the man of the family, my great nephew Noah. Oh, how much fun that little boy is. He is eight months old and such a happy boy.

So my cart was filled with baby toys, it was so much more fun than buying the latest video games or I tunes gift cards. I think I'm just going to adopt everyones little ones for Christmas from now on.

More baking will be done this weekend. Trina and I baked and drank wine for two days but it was kind of lame because we were both sick, so I'm gonna do it again with my sisters.

Clementine's eye has healed perfectly, she doesn't even look strange, she has so much hair you can't usually see her eye anyway. She has a few new nicknames, Hailey's favorite is Cyclops, and for Halloween she is going to be a one eyed, one horned flying purple people eater.  Jackson calls her disability dog, we're trying to figure out what her super power is so we can make her a cape. That sounds like a super hero doesn't it?

Hope everyone is having as much fun as I am!


  1. It's so much fun shopping for little kids, isn't it? I don't remember the toys being as cool or as fun when I was little!!

  2. I'm so not into Christmas yet this year. In fact, I had to force myself to put up the tree today. And I did it in the most slapdash, half-ass fashion. But I don't care, it's done. I think I need some little ones around to get me in that Christmas spirit.

  3. Oh Carol! I used to work with you and would still have to look at you every so often and say "who the hell are you?" and to think, you have offspring. love you, michael c.


Say it, you know you wanna!
