The 411

Let's be honest. I don't have time for the 5 mile long stories of the typical Ang Stump blog. But hopefully you'll get the gist of what's been going on with our family these days.

Dan's world: Suffering from pharyngitis, cephalgia, bronchitis, and is intermittantly febrile (sore throat, headache, chest cold, and has a fever off and on...sounds a lot better in medical terminology, plus it makes me look smarter) He's been sick for 3 weeks and is finally starting to shake it after having the whole week off.

Jake's world: playing with cars, watching the same 30 seconds of the movie Mouse Hunt at least 79 times in a row because he's now proficient in TiVo technology and the remote control; playing with more cars; ordering "2 apple pies, pwease" at McDonalds by himself holding a wadded-up one dollar bill to the cashier; hitting his brother for taking his cars; trying desperately to figure out his squirt toy in the bathtub and then shooting a stream of water into his brothers face and yelling at the top of his lungs "Ha ha, THAT'S what I'm talking about"; growing 6 inches in two days; and finally...playing with cars.

Ty's world: pulling down the new curtains mommy and auntie Karina worked so hard to put up; using a sharpie as body paint; supergluing his ring and pinky fingers together and then ripping them apart causing a chunk of skin to be relocated from one finger to the other; waking up approximately 18 times a night due to an everlasting cold and then waking up every morning with 6 inches of snot crusted from nose to chin; FINALLY getting over the cold only to get a fat bloody lip while throwing a temper tantrum about not getting an endless supply of tic tacs.

Ang's world: um, see above...and pray for my sanity

Okay, I'm sorry I among others)relentlessly guilted you into posting another blog. I feel bad. This doesn't sound good. Makes me happy I live far away.
But your medical terminology did make you sound smart. Smarter than a 5th grader, anyway.
Have a good day...(?)

Super glue and toddler skin. OOOOWWWWIIIEEEEE!

Really, how can one life be so full? And on top of that your house is listed?

First: I am praying for your sanity daily dear friend.

Second: You need a vacation

Third: Buy a safe and put anything and everything that is not edible in it.

Fourth: Love you

The super glue thing is giving me the heebie jeebies. Seriously, my skin's crawling.

Question for you--would you be interested in reviewing my new book, Changing Your World One Diaper at a Time (Harvest House, March 2008)? If so, they'll send you a copy in early April. And if you don't get around to reviewing it, at least you'll have yourself a free book. :)

Let me know. Thanks!

I stumbled on to your blog not to long because our blogs share the same name. I must admit I can't stop reading. I hope you don't mind.
You are such a great writer--I think I laugh after each new post! After this post I will pray for your sanity because after all that I would not be sane.

I still can't get over the table scape comment. "Gram, I just LOVE your new table scape..." Who knew that a bowl of chips, a two liter of DP and some Taco Bell sauces would be such a hit?!
