More 4 year old wisdom

Heard from the back seat:
"Skip, skip, skip to the loo..." (I had to stifle a laugh at that one...To all my pregnant friends - have you been skipping to the loo a lot?)

"Mommy, do rainbows have gray?"
"No, sweetie. There's no gray in a rainbow."
"So maybe old rainbows have gray in them?" (I can't argue with the child's logic...)

And this morning as I said goodbye to him at school...
"Are you going to be a good boy today?"
"Uh huh."
"Are you going to listen to your teachers?"
"Uh huh."
"Are you going to be a good friend?"
"Uh huh."
"Are you going to miss your mommy?"
"Uh huh...and I won't use ANY potty words today!"

I'm lucky

Me: (to hubby) "That child of yours is ALWAYS singing..."

Hubby: "He's happy and has a song in his heart. He knows he's lucky to have a Daddy like me. You just don't know how lucky you are."

AJ: (from the backseat) "No, Daddy. You're lucky because you like me!"

On another note...AJ went to his first hockey game last night. It was the mascot's 13th birthday and all of the other local mascots attended the game for his birthday party. AJ was fascinated by the whole experience (so many animals!) and talked non-stop for over an hour after we left the game. This morning he was looking for his hockey puck to take to school.

And us? We forgot to take the camera with us! ARGH!!

A Day at the Doctor

Every three months I have to go to the doctor to get two vials of blood drawn and a new refill order for my prescriptions. The blood test has to be done while fasting, so I always make my appointment first thing in the morning, either the first or second patient appointment.

And then there was today...

Doctor's office opens at 8:30am. My appointment was for 8:45am. Remember this time. I have not eaten anything since 7:30pm last night. (Note: When diabetics get hungry, they get a little cranky and irritable.)

8:30 - arrive at doctor's office in time to fill out new data form for new year.
8:45 - still sitting in lobby. Request lab order form so I can have it already filled out to save time.
9:10 - am finally called back to exam room for vitals.
9:45 - have paced a hole in the tile floor waiting to be seen
9:50 - call husband on cell phone to vent frustration
10:15 - I have finally had enough. I open the door, stand in the hallway, and say (rather loudly), "All I need to have done is a blood draw. I have been sitting in this room for an hour!" Scared nurse goes into the next exam room and pulls doctor out. Doctor decides to talk to me and draw my blood himself.
10:20 - I am in my car leaving to go back to work.

Can anyone tell me why I bothered making an early appointment! (Over 15 hours without food makes me not a happy camper!)

Dumb things parents do...

From AJ's Dad

So Cousin Margie's tagging of my dear wife made me curious has to what would be in the 4th of my 4th.

I thought it was cute so I decided to post it here too.

It's that same little cowboy but he has grown up and moved on mechanical bulls. This was taken at this past year's rodeo in Panola County. Notice he still has that arm up.
And in case anyone is interested he not only gave an 8 second ride but the judges scored it a perfect 10.

Tag - I'm it!

I have been tagged by Margie. The rules are as follows:

1. Go to the 4th picture folder on your computer.
2. Post the 4th picture in that folder.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag 4 more people.

Well, here goes:

This was my little buckaroo riding his rocking horse on Granny and PawPaw's back porch. Notice that at less than two years old, he already knew he had to keep his arm up...

I have no idea who would actually participate, but I'll throw a couple of names into the hat...

1. KimboSue

2. Nicki / Babysteps

3. Mindy (I'm sure her picture will be completely AWESOME!)

4. "Wierd" Nikki
