Why God Why?

You ever just have one of those days where you ask "Why God, Why!?!?" I was having one of those days. It started with Shelby being extra slow this morning, arguing with me over everything and then followed up this afternoon with her screeching at me, kicking the TV over and then storming upstairs. I have to say though that during her afternoon outburst I had to refrain from laughing as it just struck me as silly! But of course that would have just made her more mad and given her just cause to scream and cry some more!

So after her screeching and telling me I am a bad mom and don't know how to raise kids (hey in my defense...they didn't come with owner manuals or instruction books!)I sent her upstairs and was just going to let her stay up there until I was good and ready to let her out. I was thinking maybe age 18?? At this point I asked my friend Nikki the age old question.."Why did we want kids again?" to which she said "I don't know but if you ever find out let me know!"

Anyway, a bit later I heard her come downstairs and in her hand was a piece of paper. At this point with a slight eyeroll I thought, "Oh great another I hate mom letter." So imagine my surprise when I look at it and saw this!

Were the Parent Gods smiling down on me today? Oh I think so!! I am not sure what I did to deserve this. Maybe Shelby is just growing up or maybe something I said, somewhere, someday decided to sink in and she knew she needed to apologize.

Oh I don't know but I immediately sent Nikki a message saying "I figured out why we wanted kids" and sent her this picture! It is moments like this where you just have to go "Yep, this is the reason I have a child!"

Boy did God sure answer my question today.

Happy St Patty's Day!

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything. It is really quite boring here in the Pederslie household.

I really should have gotten a picture of Shelby's St Patty's Day outfit this AM. Picture it...Apple Green t-shirt, pear green ribbin in hair, gray skirt, black leggings with my chartreuse knee socks on! Oh lordy! However my lovely husband informed me that my outfit reminded him of a leprechaun. Sigh...

So here is a song Shelby learned today and sang for us this evening.

Do Your Ears Point Up?
(Tune: Do Your Ears Hang Low)

Do your ears point up? (pull on top of ears)
Do you have a lot of luck? (cross fingers on both hands)
Can you dance an Irish jig? (dance)
For a pot of gold you'd dig. (pretend to dig)
Can you toss gold over your shoulder (pretend to toss over shoulder)
Like a giant throws a boulder? (pretend to throw heavy object)
Do your ears point up? (pull on top of ears)

It's a lot cuter when you get to see the gestures!

Hope you had jolly ol' day!
