And we have Ignition

We were...uhm... a bit naughty last night and the Mrs woke up to a bit of spotting and maybe cramps.....SO a quick call to her doctor got her an appointment to the ultrasound appointment(moved up from last week) reveals.....

We have a heartbeat.

How is it?

How is it your child can make you SO proud on one hand, and embarrass the hell out of you on the other, all in the span of 10 minutes?

We're doing last minute shopping, locally. We hit one store, and as we're paying she pips up

"daddy, when I grow up, can I be a physician?"

ME- "a physician? You mean like a doctor? Sure..."

"thanks daddy."

Lady behind the counter interjects "that's it little girl, you be a doctor."

Turns to me "do you know what MY oldest wants to be? A graffiti artist."

She made me so proud....

And that pride died 10 minutes later at the next store....

We're looking at the racks, and 2 feet over is an overweight gentleman.....And in the loudest voice of a 3 year out, Sarah announces "daddy, that man is FAT!"

*sigh* ever get that cringe curl up in a ball feeling? Yup, got that one. And of course, since it was a LOUD announcement, and he was only 2 feet away....He turns....And of course I cant get Sarah to apologize..She all of a sudden went mute and shy...So I had to.

The gentleman in questions response was "well its ok, its not like its not true." but still....

All in 10 minutes time.

An Announcement

Its probably early again, but I really cant

Mrs Carmachu is pregnant again.

She's only 5 weeks along now, but she's already been to the doctor. They gave her a shot of something, and medicine to take at home. She's sceduled for an ultrasound next week...But itrs looking good so far. Last t ime her pretosterone levels were in the single digits. Noral is around 15. Hers today(the doctor called) is something like 24.....

Of course there's a good chance *I'll* gain all the baby she's exibiting the same eating behavior as when she was carrying sarah...some foods she just looks at and pushes away, like Chicken.....we'll see.

The Christmas tree story

We got a fake tree a couple years back, when sarah was a baby, so "just in case" she didnt eat it or something(I forget exactly why). THIS year, Sarah was INSISTING that we get a "real" tree. And considering I'd rather have a real one anyway, and mommy wanted one to get one.

Of course, before we can go, we have to find the stand(you know, the one we stole a couple years ago. No seriously, we found it outside near the dumper at are apartment we use to live at. SO we just took it). Wasnt in the attic, nor was outside under the porch. Odd place, but after getting it out with a flashlight and a stick(which of course I had to do, as it was covered in spider webs), and hosing it off(and answering the questions of "why not clean it in the bath tub" which teh response was "I have to clean it outside before I can clean it inside, unless you want pet spiders") we now have a stand.

So we're off.

So when we get there, we wonder around.....get a bit of sticker shock, 'cause its been a while.....and then decide to let sarah pick.

So we wandered around aimlessly, letting the 3 year old(excuse me, 3 and a half year old, as she would correct me), letting her choose. SHE wanted one that was "just her size". So after wandering around for 20 minutes.....she picks one thats in a plotter, thats half her size.


So after a two minute arguement of why she cant have it(and the winning arguement is.....because Santa cant fit all her presents under it)....we keep looking, running down isles and in general cause mischief.

We finally settled on a nice 5' "full" one.

Of course now Sarah wants a star to go on top of we only have an angel.....but we'll see....

Sarah and Magic

As you've been aware, I've instilled Sarah with a childhood belief of magic.....things happen because of magic. If nightmares happen, she's protected from magic, and so on.

So out shopping for christmas, and looking for a dress at The Children's Place(which, BTW is extremely expenisve and not that could), I found a perfect tee-shirt for her that I had to buy.

The tee-shirt says:

"This is my magic tee-shirt"

She loves it....

My, my, my

Apparently my female readership have a bunch of smutty minds......Looking over the comments from the new "house rule" I can see everyone's thoughts immediately went right to the gutter.


No, the new rule involves Sarah, who would run around with her plastic ninja sword and want to fight right out of bath. Not, well, whatever you ladies were thinking.

You all are going to hell. The special hell. Reserved for child molesters and people who talk in the theatre.....
