More Adventures in Parenting

Ivy woke up and needed to use the bathroom, but she seemed to be taking a long time so I checked in on her. I gasped and cried in dismay, "Oh my god! Are you really wiping your butt with sister's dress?", to which she looked up with the happiest, most guiltless look I've ever seen in my life. She didn't even care that she was caught.

Oh, I tried to mail your package today, got to the UPS store and realized I left your address at home...doh.
May. 13th, 2009 01:54 am (UTC)
That's so sweet of you! I'm so behind on my mail. I'm horrible at it really.
May. 13th, 2009 02:18 am (UTC)
Hopefully she did not realize what she did, being half asleep and all.
May. 13th, 2009 02:21 am (UTC)
Oh no. There was definite glee.
May. 13th, 2009 03:33 am (UTC)
That's so adorable - in an ewww I'm glad I don't have to do the laundry kinda way :p

and on a side note...what the frig happened on Biggest Loser?!?! Helen, really? How is that possible? You'd think her ego alone would have her showing up with a weight gain of at least 50 pounds! I'm so disappointed. I could rant about this for paragraphs.....but I won't :)

Wish they had a Canadian version for my fat ass, and thighs, and belly etc...

I thought she deserved it! I mean, I, like everyone else, expected Tara to win. But Helen is 48 and down to 117 pounds? Lifting tractor tires! Hell yes! Go, woman. Tara's hot - and has $20,000. She'll be more than okay, for sure.

I've been saying all night, I *knew* I should have applied for next season! If I haven't done it on my own by then, I'll totally apply next time.

I guess I'm still miffed at Helen for sending her daughter home. I'm not a parent but I'm pretty sure I would give up anything for my child. She kind of used her daughters loyalty to guilt her into agreeing to go home.

You're too small for Biggest Loser, in my humble opinion.

That's what I was going to say. I can't imagine you being large enough to be accepted.

Has Eden's postcard arrived yet? My boy really surprised me by writing the whole thing. He was so careful about it too - he loved having a letter from her!

And Ivy? Just the kind of thing my two year old would do. I can totally imagine the glee.
May. 13th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks! I'm much bigger than I was, though. lol

It arrived yesterday! Eden's so excited. She's started a letter back. Well, she thinks she's done. I'm going to make her tell him a bit more, since she only wrote one sentence and wanted to run to the post office. But since we have no Leicester post cards, she's drawn him a picture of our mountains.

Ivy's almost four already! She'll be four in August. She definitely should have known better. The glee was the same though.
May. 13th, 2009 09:55 pm (UTC)
Oh I can imagine my 2yo still doing things like that at 4 - she's just *that* cheeky!

He'll be so excited to get something back - this was such a good idea.

I didn't see some of the earlier episodes, so I guess I missed that. Still, I don't know. If they got equipment and training at home too, I would have bowed out in favor of my mom. Sometimes those older parents are closer to an unhealthy demise and need it more. I thought it was awesome that Jerry beat everyone else in the at-home thing. Him & Helen - that was just a wonderful end to this season, I thought. Everyone thought Tara had it in the bag.

And thanks! I think I may be too small to win it against much bigger folks, but it's something I apparently have trouble fixing on my own. I would love one of those badass trainers helping me out.
May. 13th, 2009 05:54 am (UTC)
Oh LOL!!!! Look Mommy, I am doing a good job, just like you taught me how to do this, right? LOL!
May. 13th, 2009 02:38 pm (UTC)
I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was one of Eden's favorite spring dresses, too!
May. 13th, 2009 12:28 pm (UTC)
Ivy has made a strike for youngest siblings everywhere! Take that elder brothers who picked on me every chance they got.
May. 13th, 2009 03:17 pm (UTC)
Hm, so I guess this would help rather than hinder her presidential bid.
May. 13th, 2009 03:44 pm (UTC)
May. 13th, 2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you approve.
May. 13th, 2009 05:53 pm (UTC)
oh my....

i could see my little one doing that.... is Ivy the older or the younger one?
May. 13th, 2009 06:16 pm (UTC)
Ivy's the younger one. She's 3.5, and Eden's 6.
May. 13th, 2009 06:22 pm (UTC)
hehehe.... is she a little troublemaker? M is like that - she'll be 8 in a few weeks; J will be 12 at the end of august.

(12?!? time flies, i'm telling you....)
May. 13th, 2009 09:42 pm (UTC)
ROFL!! My Savannah would do something like that.
May. 14th, 2009 04:11 pm (UTC)
How old is Savannah?
May. 14th, 2009 11:55 pm (UTC)
She is three.
May. 14th, 2009 12:52 pm (UTC)
I told my co- worker about this and she asked, one has to wonder why the dress. Was it handy or is there something deeper?

Ivy for pres.
May. 14th, 2009 04:13 pm (UTC)
Well, they had both worn their pretty sundresses that day, and Eden left hers on the bathroom floor. Still, the toilet paper was closer, and Ivy had heard Eden going on about how she just loves her beautiful spring dress.

Woo hoo, you remember! She's still dedicated. Hopefully I can teach her a bit more about diplomacy by then. :P
May. 14th, 2009 12:56 pm (UTC)
A child of pure guileless evil.

I've always told you she was somehow a child of my own heart. ;)
May. 14th, 2009 04:14 pm (UTC)
*glances fearfully at the beautiful skirt she wore to NY*
