If you’re wondering why I haven’t blogged at all this year, I’ll tell you. I’M LAZY!!! It takes time and a little effort to blog, although I set my standards too high I’m sure. Most people write a short ditty and post some pics, but I feel compelled to write a story fit for a magazine article and that is probably my problem. Instead of keeping people generally informed about our lives, I just skip it altogether. This “all or nothing” mentality is generally the way I live my life, and probably why I haven’t lost these last 15 pounds 🙂
I don’t have much to say…my facebook statuses and photo albums have probably kept those of you who care updated enough, so I wanted to include a few of Isaiah’s funnier one-liners from the past few months. These are funnier when you hear them, because of the emphasis he places on certain words, but hopefully you catch their drift and they make you smile.
1. He was waiting for me to start a show for him and instead I was checking facebook (shocking, I know), so he leans over the couch and says, “Mom, does it LOOK like you’re starting a show for me? I don’t think so!”
I guess I should also clarify that many of these border on disrespect…which makes them even funnier from a 3 year old. Don’t worry, I’m sure he was corrected if he was out of line 😛
2. After an accident right by the toilet, I was cleaning up his urine and he says with a very serious tone, “Mom, this is a bad situation.”
3. When I corrected him at our friend’s house, “Mom, I’m not talking to you, I’m talking to Miss Shamira.” (OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!)
4. When Earl was home for R and R, we went to Red Robin and Earl says, “How about you eat your pizza so you can have a milkshake.” Isaiah responds like an expert negotiator, “How ’bout this? How ’bout I don’t eat any of my pizza and I STILL get my milkshake.”
Maybe these aren’t too funny to some people, but I loved them enough that I wrote them down in my little “mom journal.”
I’m packing up myself, the 3 kids and 2 dogs and driving 19 hours to San Diego this weekend, so I’d appreciate any and all prayers you can spare! We are visiting Earl’s parents and going to SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, the Birch Aquarium and the beach of course! We’re planning on making the last 28 days go as quickly as possible! We’ll be there 2 weeks and by the time I get home, unpack and clean the house, it will almost be time for him to be home!
I love you all and hope you’re doing well. Thanks so much for all your support and prayers!
