Boys and their... Dollhouses?

Who says boys shouldn't play with dollhouses? Yes, I know what it looks like. In one of the pictures it appears as though the T-Rex is humping poor Cookie monster, or as Snoo used to call him, Oodie Odder, but I can assure you it's just a friendly hu and this is a G-rated site. He's giving Big Bird a kiss on the cheek in the third picture which proves T-Rex is a lover and not a fighter all after. Either that or he's eating off Big Bird's face but Jakey's expression is just too sweet to concede to that theory.

Snoo had this toy when she was little, only she made sure to scratch all the eyes off of every character. They were staring at her and she didn't like that.

I found this house at a yard sale and swooped it up for old time's sake. As you can see Jakey bee quite enjoys the Sesame Street house so long as dinosaurs can chill with the baby puppets. It started off really friendly, he was just checking Big Bird out at first. Then T-Rex came into the picture. Sometime's he gives hugs and kisses and other times I hear a big ROAR and it appears he's stompng them to death. In the second picture, I'm certain the dinosaur is bowing in reverence to King Big Bird. What dinosaur wouldn't? It's not every day that you meet a ten foot tall yellow bird that sings and talks. Unless you went to Woodstock.

Why Moms are on Prozac

Could this be why so many young moms are on Prozac these days? Now, I'm good at shrugging this off and waiting for what's next but day after day, after awhile you get tired of cleaning the house and finding it totally destroyed ten minutes later. There's crap all over the table, floor, and counters. It's ridiculous. Why do I bother?

Oh. My. God. This is what it has come to. And who keeps leaving the cereal out?

And note the toddler that's standing on the table, while trying to shove his chubby little gut into a crayola crafts tub.

It's no wonder that he hasn't hurt himself yet.

Strung out Snoo

Every parent has dreams for their kids. They hope for a bright, healthy, prosperous future. Every so often when you remember that you had no idea what you were doing when you had kids, you have a tiny glimpse of what you fear could be less of a dream and more a nightmare. Little Johnny in the slammer let's say, or little Susie strung out. Well, today, I have proof those occassional thoughts might have some validity to them. Some little punk stole the camera and decided to document Snoo's often hyper rampages. I have no idea which child took this picture, or how such a beautiful blue-eyed girl can photograph so terribly. Out of all the bad pictures I have of her, this one is truly the worst. Maybe I should have the Betty Ford clinic's number ready, just in case.

Walks with Dad

One of the perks of joblessness for Richard is all the time he's gotten to spend with the kids, most especially with Jakey bee since he's home all day. Although, it has been rough, all the bonding they've gotten to do is priceless. Now, I can see how God takes bad situations and shows you the blessing.
