Just the facts, Ma'am

Lots of little things to mention, nothing big and heavy and morose. Yahoo!

  1. Bought the Girl her b'day present today. I think she'll like what I got her. Of course the Boy, who can't keep his mouth shut for 2 seconds told her where we shopped and how much money I spent. Sigh. There is no such thing as a secret in this family.
  2. Miss Zoot featured guest posters today to share the blog love. Run over and see the recommendations. Lots of new blogs I haven't seen before.
  3. Caught the Girl in a massive lie today and she's in trouble. The thing is, she didn't need to lie, but she just did.
  4. I have a parenting dilemma that I'm not sure what to do with. My brother sent the kids checks for their birthday. A friend also gave them checks. They now have a nice chunk of change to spend. The Girl has already cashed one and went to the mall this evening. No problem with her spending. She'll blow it all on clothing. But the Boy. He wants to buy a TV for his bedroom so he can move his XBox up to his room. I am anti-TV in kids rooms. But I'd love to get the Xbox off the family TV. Believe me when I say I would be thrilled never to hear the words "Can I play my XBox" again. I had him come up with 3 compelling reasons why a TV would be a good idea. And with rules we could live with. I also told him that any infraction of the rules would result in immediate parental controls on the TV. I think we can agree to this. Gulp.
  5. While shopping today, the Boy found a jacket he would be willing to wear. Because he never wore a jacket all winter last winter, any jacket he's willing to wear is a good deal. He froze his butt off last winter but he hated his jacket and refused to put it on. It was a jacket he picked out and bought with his own money, so this really confused me. As in "What the..."? We put the jacket on layaway. It's a leather bomber jacket. Lined, Calvin Klein. It seems warm. It will last a long time. I guess it's a decent investment.
  6. Lots of bloggers seem sad and depressed. People are quitting their blogs. People are on long vacations. It feels like the blogging world has intestinal distress. I hope everyone feels better soon.
  7. It is officially the twin's birthday!
