I am just going to tell you, I have a new favorite movie. I am just in love with Burlesque (thank you Sarah)! I love the music, I love the dancing, and I love love love Christina Aguilera in this movie. I have never really thought that much of her before, but I think she is absolutely beyond gorgeous in this movie.

There is a part in the movie where Tess is helping Ali (Christina) put on her makeup. It made me realize how little attention I pay to makeup. I have never been a big makeup girl. I use very little makeup. My main reason is because I love sleep almost more than anything else. Therefore, I require hair and makeup that can be done with as little time as possible so I can sleep as late as possible.

The other reason is I really have never been shown how to put on makeup. I honestly go in to makeup stores and have no clue what all of that stuff is for.

I have no plan to change my daily routine. Honestly, I really like not wearing a lot of makeup. The rest of you may disagree, but I love my freckles and I think I am fairly pretty without a lot of makeup on. However, I would really really like someone to take me makeup shopping and help me buy some fun things to use when I am going somewhere special. I would love to know how to make my cheeks glow like Christina’s do in the movie. Any takers?

Ok here is my daily makeup. So seriously who wants to take me shopping? On a side note- I have a sweet beautiful friend that is single and has been dating this guy since September. She called me today and talked to me about breaking up with him. I asked her why and she told me because when they first met he told her all the time how beautiful she was and how much he was attracted to her. Now that they have been together for a while he never tells her. So now she is thinking he was just saying that to get what he wanted and didn’t really mean it or he would still be telling her. I thought I was going to bust out laughing. What is it about men? They can bring such a good game and then they completely stop trying. I told her to give the poor guy a break. Unfortunately they are all like that!

P.S. If you are one of the women that are married to the rare men that are sweet to you all the time-don’t even think about texting me tomorrow with your comments. The rest of you feel free. I love hearing form you!

I have 3 points and and I am going to close with a little story

Ok so my the title of this post is an inside joke. However, I do have three completely random things to tell you and then two very exciting announcements (exciting for me any ways).

First, My baby girl is 6! I can't believe it. She, being just like her momma, has been planning her sixth birthday for a year now. She wanted her sixth birthday at Fast Lanes. We invited several of her favorite friends, which happen to be mostly boys and had a great time. Here are a couple of pictures from her party. And yes just in case you are wondering she has already started planning her seventh birthday party. A girl has to be prepared you know. HA! Second, As I have mentioned before I am always working on achieving the mother of the year award. I have come close several times, but this time I am convinced I am going to at least win runner up. So Jaxton has had this terrible cough for about four months now. We have taken him to the doctor several times and the doctor has never been all that concerned; saying it is just allergies (we can all thank his daddy for that). The last time we took him in he talked about it being a milk allergy. Well, me being the oh so wonderful mother that I am, completely dismissed this thought. I mean I nursed Jaxton for ten months and had dairy all the time. Then when we switched to formula we used a regular dairy formula. Why would it be a dairy allergy? None the less I tried switching him to a lactose free milk just to see if that would help. His cough just continued to get worse and worse. He started coughing so much that it was waking him up at night. I, in my sleep deprived best started getting very concerned. I called my mom one morning crying. What could be wrong with my baby boy? I let my mind wonder off into a thousand different directions all of which were way off the wall terrible things. My last option before taking him back to the doctor and making them test him for every disease known to man; was to switch him to soy milk. So on Tuesday of this past week, I went to the store picked up a carton of soy milk and we made the switch. Not only did he drink it without a second thought (which is why I didn't want to switch him in the first place-it taste terrible) he hasn't coughed again since. So I am relieved that there is nothing seriously wrong with my son, but completely appalled that my motherly instincts were so off. I let my son suffer for months just because I was to stubborn to listen to the doctor.

Third and final random story, This week I ate a $43 cupcake and let me tell you it didn't taste very good at all. I was doing what every normal girl does after a stressful day at work, getting myself a snack. What better to have for a snack then a leftover chocolate cupcake. I like my cake warm so decided to put it into the microwave. I guess I warmed it a little too long because as soon as I pulled it out the icing slid off of it and landed right on top of my phone. Apparently iphone speakers do not work so well with chocolate icing in them. That little over- heated cupcake cost me $43 worth of speaker repair on my phone. Really, who does crap like that?

Ok so the last two stories were really just to make you feel better about your life. You do feel better, right? Knowing that someone out there is a bigger dork than you. It's ok- laugh all you want to. I know I am pretty ridiculous.

To make myself feel better though, I am going to brag now. The month of April is turning out to be pretty spectacular for me. My Melissa is coming to see me!!! Yea!!! And I get to go see Kenny Chesney. Not only get to see him, but meet him. I have front row tickets and backstage passes and what I am sure will be a very fun girls weekend!!! That's right ladies I am going to get to stare at that fine ass of his for hours!!! Whoo Hoo!!! I know you are all jealous now.
Doesn't make you feel so bad for laughing at me earlier now does it?

Those of you that have or have had a five year old know how unpredictable they are. They are like little sponges always listening to everything around them. You never know what they are going to say. So imagine my job, working with five year olds every day. I am telling you parents out there, you should be scared at how much your child’s kindergarten teacher knows about you. No topic is off limits for them.

Most days I do pretty good at keeping my composer and when they ask questions like “How many girls can I marry?” , or blurt out things like “ My mommy farted so loud My daddy said she was going to break the dishes”. I can even control myself when they get in a discussion about how shit isn’t really a bad word because “My daddy says it all the time”. I can usually redirected the conversation and manage to keep a straight face.

However, sometimes I just can’t help but bust out laughing.

I will tell on my own precious five year old first. Last night we were eating dinner and she starts telling us about how a little boy in her class met a mean man that drives a silver car. This little boy was telling Ashlynn all about how worried he was because this mean man does lots of bad things. Ashlynn quickly reassured Jimmy that it was going to be ok because she was going to pray about this mean man. As you can imagine, this is a proud momma moment for me. I thought wow what a sweet sweet daughter I am raising. Well, just about the time I am about to give myself a huge pat on the back she continues with, “So I did pray momma. I prayed that God would send all the bad people to Mexico so we wouldn’t have bad people in our world.” I about spit my food all over the table. Where does she get this stuff? Note to self-no more 6 o’clock news.

Then this morning, I chose the Hokey Pokey as our morning wiggle song. (Yes, I dance every morning at 8 a.m. -go ahead get your laughing out now.) So any way we are Hokey Pokeying along when I look up and one of my little boys has his hands on the back of his head and he is rotating his hips like he has a hula hoop and he says “Yeah ladies it’s a love fest over here”. Sorry at that moment I absolutely could not keep a straight face.

This one is not actually from my classroom but is too funny not to share. This little boy went into the bathroom and when he came out he promptly went over to his teacher and stated he need three right choices tickets. Mrs. Badeen said “And why is that?” The little boy said because “I peed all over the wall and I cleaned that up. I peed all over the seat and I cleaned that up and I peed all over the floor and I cleaned that up. Mrs. Badeen, a little perplexed asked “Why were you peeing all over everything?”. The little boy looked up with a serious face and said “Because my wienner dog was out of control, duh”.

And my all-time favorite five year old story is from back in the days when I was doing my internship. My mentor teacher believed in starting her morning off with a share time. We went around the room and everyone had a few minute to just share one thing. We get to this little girl and she says “ I am sad this morning because my mommy is crying”. My mentor teacher replied with “I am so sorry. Why is she crying?” The little girl explained that her daddy didn’t come home last night and her mommy was worried. That’s when another little boy jumped up and said “Don’t worry Allison your daddy spent that night at my house last night and had a wrestling contest with my momma.” Oh my mercy I wanted to crawl in a hole.

So if you ever get bored in your job and just want to come over and hang out at mine- I can guarantee a good time!
