2:45 am - Messy Easter Bunny

_scarlet_ibis_
Now, I like Easter as much as the next person... I do.  It's never been a huge deal in my family, but we're always excited to see what the Easter Bunny has brought to us.  Well, he doesn't bring me anything anymore, but he does bring a basket of goodies to my daughter, and for that I appreciate him.  I do.

... It's just...

Why does he always have to track mud all over the porch and sometimes even into the foyer?  I mean, you'd think after all the time he's been doing this that by now he'd have figured out that it's just not a nice thing to do.  No, the kids don't mind it, but it's hard on the moms who have to clean up that mess.

Such uniform little footprints too.  It's almost as if someone took some compressed cellulose sponges,

enlarged an illustration of some bunny tracks and printed them out on regular paper,

then cut them out and traced them onto the compressed sponge,

and then cut out the shapes of the tracks, moistened them to make them decompress, and dipped them in mud and put bunny tracks all over my porch and the floor of my foyer like some kind of misguided craft project!

Instead of paint, though, it seems like it's a mixture of:

- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup dirt from the yard
- hot water

Then it seems like it was mixed together until it had the consistency of pancake batter before the sponge shapes were dipped into it and pressed all over the floor to look like bunny tracks.

That's what it seems like, but really it's just that messy ol' Easter Bunny not caring a bit about anything but getting gifts and candy to the children.  Oh, the things we mothers have to put up with.

I just posted on a stoner community a real life story about a friend of mine that died of an O.D. and I feel kind of bad because I don't know how the people on that community will react. Was I wrong for posting that warning of am I just feeling bad because of my past drug habbit?

8:00 pm - Hi. I know I'm out of place.

drdonut
I know I'm out of place but I need access to people who can give advice my family usually doesn't. I hope this doesn't sound rather stupid. I do have one question to ask though. How do you explain how you feel to the person your in love with without making her feel uncomfortable or confused?

current mood: upset

It's really working on my last nerve and I am really frustrated about the whole situation. It's gotten to the point where I can't even take them places together and it's sad because I want my family back, who swapped these kids with the angels I once had? I guess I'm just venting and lettin off some stream, cuz damn...I just have to remember to breathe...

Thanks for listening!

My husband and I just had a baby almost 3 months ago (woah time flies) so I obviously have been staying home... which means a big budget cut for us; but...Both of these websites are GREAT! I've made over $200 in the past 2months from them (and yes really have been paid)! M
The surveys can get redundent, but are worth it. Treasure Trooper isn't as quick to okay things you've done, but I think has better payouts! Check em out! (Warning: THEY ARE SLIGHTLY ADDICTING!!!)

3:15 pm - I'm New
iveendured Hi everyone I'm new to livejournal and the coolmoms community. This is actually the first community I've joined. But I am in desperate need of some help with my 5 year old daughter. She is in Kindergarten and just learning to read and I have no idea how to transfer over to her level. So I find myself getting frustrated when trying to help her learn to read. I could use some pointers and if anybody knows where she should be at in her reading I would really appreciate it.

7:42 pm - Question about baby expenses.

tariana
How much does or did your baby really cost a month? What do you pay for diapers, formula, daycare, etc. etc.? I will continue working mostly because my job has excellent benefits that I can't afford to give up.

I'm trying to figure out a plan to be able to afford to at least start trying to get pregnant. I was figuring maybe if I figured out kind of an "average" cost of what babies cost a month we could start trying to live while putting that much back (or something close to it) in a savings account each month. Then by the time I finally did get pregnant we'd have quite a nice nest egg set aside, besides being able to actually live and afford the baby on the money we actually make each month.

So, if you wouldn't mind giving me an idea of what it costs, I'd appreciate it. I'm talking an actual dollar amount, if possible.

I really do appreciate this.

8:00 am - It was a Happy Halloween!

tricksie
In the circus that is my life news...

Sean (Otherwise refered to as "Daddy" in above mentioned household) decided whilst trick or treating that it would be most appropriate to "Skip to His Liu" or in this particular case skip to the next condo door for treats..the following events happened in that Chariots of Fire type slo-motion....(For setting purposes Me otherwise refered to as "Ma, Mom,Mommy and or BUB...(GAF! We'll save the "Bub" explanation for another post)Was waiting patiently in the truck where it was warm having already done 1.5 hours of trick or treats before Daddy ever even got home from work.

He skips, skip skips skips skips then suddenly connects with a tree branch and his wirey body hits the ground. Mom (being EMT trained but not certified because she missed too many classes) jumps from the truck fully expecting to have to search on the ground for a missing eyeball runs to the scene to joyfully find both eyeballs in head of above mentioned Dad where they belong. HOWEVER, the branch took no prisoners..a six inch gash ran from forehead to the rear of poor Dad's head, making him look like he survived a Ginsu knife fight.

However we are pleased to report Dad will be turning 28 on Friday with both eyeballs firmly secured in his head.

Hey Ladies!!

My name is Danielle, I am posting breifly to make a plea for a freind of mine..her name is Melony. She just got custody of her 1 year old grandson and was served divorce papers all in the same week. She was short money to begin with but is just making it now. Since the baby's other grandma is sour about Melony having gotten custody she refues to give her anything of the baby's. I gave her the clothes I had left and some toys. She is using my crib and Pack N Play. She is in desperate need of clothes...summer clothes size 12m-24m. If you are or know somebody who is willing to donate clothes to a very cute baby and an extreamly apperciative lady please, please comment and send to
Danielle Young/ 334 East Lake Rd./Palm Harbor, Fl 34685.
That is my office box.
I thank you in advance for you kindness and consideration!
