I am going to lose my ever-loving mind today.

I swear it.

Mo is being a total head case.

I pulled out my camera to document our day. I've been taking a photo every hour or so. Someday I will use this little photo essay to.... well.... I don't know yet.

At least he's jolly about his antics.

I just need some human conversation.

That might be the only thing that saves me today.

So.

Ummm....

Read any good books lately?

Sympathy!

I read "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" (David Sedaris." Way funny.

I'm trying to work around the company rule that we have to use a kit for a gingerbread house competition. I wonder if I can soften and recut the gingerbread pieces.

I love David Sedaris! I haven't read that one yet but I do have a handy little extra 15% off coupon that I need to use by next week. Perhaps I'll pick that up.

A kit? That sounds like everyone will end up with the same thing. Have you tried steaming it a bit?
I know you can make cool stained glass windows with hard candy.

I'm going to buy a kit on the weekend and work on modifying the pieces.

I'm grrrrrrrrrrrrrring. I really wanted to make a transport truck with working lights. They said "No". Apparently some people can't bake. I'm not even allowed to do it as a demo piece. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

It uses pre-baked gingerbread pieces?

Honestly you have to wonder why they even have a competition.

Is there some way you could put the existing pieces into a different arrangement? Maybe prairie style? An igloo? A teepee?

Boomerang, sozobe--

Aren't you thrilled to have such creative children with charmingly unfettered, original minds?

Sometimes.

Actually she's still a pitiful little lump so the jolly havoc-wreaking sounds better than usual.

When she's in jolly havoc-wreaking mode the sweet, quiet little sickie sounds more attractive.

(She's coming 'round, just slowly.)

Too bad you didnt live closer boom.
I would let you bring Mo over here where there is a BIG yard and 2 cats that ( oddly enough ) love to play with children.
Tea/Coffee.. something sweet to eat ...and conversation come with the offer indefinatly. ;-)

When my kids get like this I order them outside and make them do wind sprints. Of course, when the weather is bad I just lock myself in the closet.

Right now I'd settle for a charming, unfettered sofa with legs still attached (luckily they are easy to reaffix), something that would remove dry erase markers from belly skin, and well... a few other things.

No lasting damage done (yet) and I'm thinking that my photo essay of the day might dissuade many a misty eyed girl from having children too early in their lives.

I'm sorry to hear that sozlet is sick. I read on the birthday thread that some party comer gave her a doozy of a virus. I should certainly be happy with the huge wellness Mo is exhibiting.

Yes, it is too bad, shewolf! The graces of the goddess seem very far away today. Tea and sympathy is just what the doctor would order.

The weather outside is pretty nasty today but that didn't stop Mo from taking a 10 pound hammer to some terra cotta while getting completely drenched and covered in mud.

Thank goodness the carpet cleaners come tomorrow and not yesterday.

The closet is looking very inviting, FreeDuck!

Right now I'm hoping he'll wear himself out and take a nice little nap.

Once, when I'd had enough of the littler one and knew she was spinning out of control, I wrapped her up in blanket so tight that she couldn't move and held her still in my lap until she fell asleep. It worked, but it took some determination.

Good suggestion freeduk!!!! Laughing

I have planned for the future.
I have a 4 foot round 1 1/2 foot high roll of bubble wrap. When she-pup gets old enough I am going to cut arm/leg holes in the sides and slide her in.
Then.. she can do what ever she wants.. hehe.

Mo will be four next month, Cinnesthesia.

I tried a spin of FreeDucks idea -- I put in a old favorite video, grabbed a blanket and a pillow and laid down on the sofa. A few minutes later Mo came and snuggled up with me. I thought he might just be about asleep when he jumped up and started going again.

Maybe its Christmas fever.
