I have never had such a hard time getting into the Christmas Spirit as I have this year. My stereo has been broken and I can't use the ipod, in case WB calls for me. In the Good Mother Manual it ways I should not ignore him, but respond to his requests of "I'm sorry to bother you, but can I have a drink please?" can I say no to that sweet thing? Just because he can't get it himself is no reason why I should ditch him.

Well Homer went and bought me a Boze for Christmas! I small one but hey...I LOVE IT and have always wanted one! Now I can play my music in MY part of the house...WB is very territorial and that is were the computer is. Did I mention Homer gave it to my early? Now I can cry and complain and throw a tantrum if I don't get anything under the tree!!! Yes...I am that good...and that petty.

So here are a few things that have made me giggle these past couple of weeks. All from my blond ditsy girl McFly. I am not a writer so don't judge...

On WB birthday...McFly: "Mom, how many people are coming to the party tonight?"

Queen: "Well, WB has invited everyone and their dog."

McFly: "Really? Everyone is bringing their dogs?"

We found out (after extensive and expensive testing) that McFly does not have Attachment Disorder but she has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Yeah. On the way home from a long day of assessments I told her: " we know what race you are."

McFly: " Really?"

Me: " Yes, you are half black...or in other words, half African-American."

McFly: "Oh...cuz people always ask me and I just say I don't know."

(insert teaching moment) Me: "Now what are you going to tell them?"

McFly: (rolling her eyes and grunting because I am so stupid) "That I am half black and half African American!"

Yes, yes...she is almost 12 and knows who her Bio mother is...

The other day she wanted marshmallows that were melty in her hot chocolate so she but the whole bag of marshmallows in the microwave. I thought The First Born would die laughing...
By the way...I am very proud of The First Born...he is clean, has put on weight, and is doing well. He and Baby Mama are doing the big "D", and if he would get a would be good for me cuz maybe he would leave. Love him but...just sayin'...

Barefoot Dreamer said...

When you said in the box, just where does that mean you will be sitting? I am ignorant I know. We will have to meet up. My tickets are in section 106 row 32. I hope they are not bad.

So sorry about all the stuff McFly is putting you through. Yikes. Hang in there.

Can't wait to see you at the game, and it is not just for my present. I am going to the fireside Monday night as well.

Glad you got such a great present.

Shanna said...

I agree, this year has been a hard year to get into the Christmas Spirit!

Crazy Cousin said...

MC cuzn, baby! Glad to hear you survived it. Perhaps now you have discovered the REAL reason why God sent you McFly....for comic relief in your Latter years! hehehe
You know I love ya!
I went on Ebay about three years ago and purchased a beautiful Bose to give to aunt Florence in SF just cuz she said she always wanted one. If I would have known you wanted one, too!!! Just saying!

Does melting the marshmallows in the hot chocolate in the microwave work??? hehehehe
