Hot and Random

1. Despite the fact that I heard Demetrius tell me, the thermometer in my car told me, and the fact that I could FEEL it for myself, Alexis proceeded to tell me that it's hot about 4,000 times today. Thanks, kiddo!

2. The tiny aquarium has it's overpriced fish now. Actually, it has two overpriced fish. We really need some sort of mental help.

3. I had the most bizarre lunch experience of all time today. It was one of those things where you had to be there to fully understand just how weird the whole thing was, but I will say that I've never seen so many people quit and get fired in such rapid successsion in my life. The manager dude locked the place when it was down to just him then proceeded to call the owner to say that he quit, too. We still sat around and ate our food.

4. Alexis just got yelled at by Daddy for getting into things. She proceeded to toddle over to me, in tears, pointing at Daddy and saying "Bad Daddy". She is so definately the smartest kid of all time.

5. Here's another old video that demonstrates just exactly why Alexis gets whatever she wants. Whenever she wants it. BTW, she's trying to sign it as she says it, but didn't have the manual dexterity at the time. She's pretty close these days.


Is that the Sale Price? Including Decorator Discounts?

That funny chick over at Precarious Tomato already blogged about this, but I can't seem to get it out of my head. So I feel the need to share with all my bestest internet friends. This house is just a little bit too far away for us to go look at in person, but seriously, the thought did cross my mind. Make sure you look at all of the pictures. You won't be sorry. Well, actually you might be sorry. Most likely you'll just be speechless and very, very confused.


Buh-bye Teeth!

I will be shocked (SHOCKED! I tell you) if Alexis manages to keep all of her baby teeth until the age when her grown-up teeth evict them. In fact, she is on the fast-track to knocking them ALL out before she turns two. First there was the incident with the DVD case, the floor, and her face. Judging by all the blood in her mouth and the split lip, I think the floor won. Then there was the time I was sitting on the floor and she attempted to sit in my lap. I don't really know how you mess up a perfectly aimed one-foot plop, but the return of the bloody mouth and split lip provided proof positive that she did, indeed, take a bad turn somewhere along the way. This morning she added a magical tumble off the bed to her collection of ways that you can try to knock your teeth out. So far, she hasn't managed to even do this, but it's coming soon, I can assure you. And with that, I think I'll work on adding her to our dental insurance now.
