Photobooth . .. Thursday?

Ok, so I forgot. But then I came home from Young Women's on Wednedsay and had an this e-mail from Hy:

We read a "Friend" (lds magazine for kids) story about Saints sailing from England to America who were almost attacked by pirates. It was about praying and how we should pray as often as we can. The story prompted these responses:

The Juice: Do horses say prayers? (followed by an imitation of what it might sound like if a horse were to pray)

Red knowingly concluded: Pirates don't say prayers

Yay for the Dentist!

I should have taken pictures, but I didn't. But I wanted to share anyway. All of the girls have been to the dentist . . . and liked it. We got referred to Kids First Pediatric Dentistry by our pediatrician, and turns out---, one of the dentists--Tyler Carter---Hy knew from diving in high school, and I knew him from my college days (his pre-mission days).

The practice is on Queen Creek/Gilbert. Not close to me--but I figured--what does it matter? How often do you go to the dentist anyway? So we went--and were so happy. I've been to a crusty pediatric dentist office before, and it was miserable. This was clean, new, bright and fun. Tyler was awesome with the kids--and they got new toothbrushes--Dora, which they loved, and also a token to put in a machines that had trinkets.

So if you're looking for a good dentist for your kids. Check him out.

The Juice Speaks

Me: Juice--pick up that napkin from under the table. I can't get it.

The Juice: You can't get it? Is it because your butt's too big?

After I requested that The Juice do something . . .

"Mom I just want to follow my heart"

translation--I just want to do what I want to do

What Red's 1st day of 1st grade looked like:


Unfortunately her new shoes didn't fit, so she had to wear her old ones. Luckily she's too young to care.

Kids Say

Red and The Juice were trying to decide on a name for one of their dolls.

They would go back and forth with ideas:

"Bon?" "Jara?" "Sniffy?" "Kama?" etc. etc.

Then Red said:

"How about Toot?---as in---Toot in your face."

(Um what? As in Toot in your face? I'm great at manners)

Then yesterday we went to Mi Amigos and they were crawling under the table, and not eating their food. Squoosh ran from me in the parking lot twice--and my pregnant body had to run after her while she laughed. GRRR

So we got home and they wouldn't come in the house they would wander around as I kept telling them to come in, ---they totally know that I empty threat when I'm pregnant and I can't do much about it. So they finally make it into the house and I"m tired and beyond pissed so I sternly tell them:

"Don't ask for treats or snacks or anything---you don't deserve it. You are all being disobedient and sassy and I'm done with you. I'm so angry right now--stay away."

The juice from afar off says "We love you miss Hannigan"

I should have been pissed at that but she's 4--and that is super quick and funny. That actually calmed me down a bit. That kid is funny.

Did anyone else get this Target magazine in the mail?

Is it a girl?

It it a boy?

Is it a mom?

Is it a kid?

Really--Hy and I had this conversation. Then later, Red picked it up and said "Is this a boy or a girl?".

Good Question.

I concur

I have been a lazy blogger of late. So I thought I'd drop a little post.

Remember my post about the immodest paper doll?

I got a comment from Johnna (thank you) with a link to a Segullah article.

Read it.

I concur---completely.
