"without my eyelashes i don't know who i'd be..."

I've heard it said that one of the main responsibilities of a father is teaching their children how to play. The Professor is really good at that. He has the patience of a saint during Sunday afternoon game-time (while yo momma is napping). Some may have wondered if the Professor enjoys the actual process of playing games with his young or if he merely enjoys the fact that he always wins... hmmm. [The Professor insists that Jakob won the game pictured... that's probably why he wanted it photographed, he does let them win every now and then.] Bubble Bath time!!
We don't do this often because its not so good for little bums... but, it is SO fun when Anna is at a soccer party and the boys are at Pack Meeting and we need a quick idea for the little girls. I use Palmolive dish soap-- you can use kid shampoo, but if the kids see you do that they will make bubble baths any time you leave them alone in the bathroom. Not that we would ever leave them alone in the tub... AND, remember to wash their hair first so that when (yes, when not if) they start splashing and making a mess you can just grab them out for... BED TIME! Cooking with Phyllo dough...
I just bought this dough in the freezer section and printed out a recipe for Spanakopita and Baklava... Todd and I loved the spinach one, the kids not so much. But, they all had good times helping me put it together. So fun...
The Professor LOVES when I cook him international recipes!?!
Yo Momma: "What do you want for dinner this week honey?"
The Professor: "Have you ever wanted to learn how to cook Indian food?"
Yo Momma: pause. "NO." pause.
Yo Momma: "The correct answer would have been, how about grilled cheese and tomato soup like we have every week... Minus 10 points."

I debated. I held the $5.60 400x Maybeline lash enhancing mascara and compared it to Pinpoint Lash Injection... but, EVERYONE that works at the makeup store (and gets $5 commission on each bottle sold) wears Lash Injection mascara... they PROMISED me it would both lengthen and curl my lashes... the final kicker, it was
"Tested on Celebrities, NOT Animals." Come on, I'm just trying to do my part to save the rats.
Can you put a price tag on humanity? WOW!!I walk out the door and feel like a million dollars (well, maybe $20). I know most days my lashes are worth more than my whole outfit. The Professor can't keep his hands off me. He says, "Oooh it must be those lashes." So, if you happen to see me looking especially long lashed... go ahead compliment me. I really don't know how I ever lived before PINPOINT Lash INJECTION. yes, this is me-- multi-tasking... I'm getting ready for the rodeo, talking on the phone to my mom, and taking a picture for this blog... leah is sitting on the counter to my left 'helping'...
oh, it's so much more fun to write these silly blogs than to fold the ginormous pile of laundry that is waiting for me...
