I am DOOMED!

So, to get our minds off of the fact that Cleatus has a very real possibility of coming out looking like a California Raisin (purple and shrivelled), I have decided to tell a story about my adorable children.

I have created a family of monsters, and just as when I am doing something stupid and end up getting hurt...I have no one to blame but myself. At the moment, I have a house full of sarcastic and sassy kids that will eventually grow into sarcastic and sassy teenagers.

Example you say? Ok, here is but one of the myriad of examples of what I mean. This last weekend, I was helping C.J. sound out scaredy cat. He finally read it out loud in a bit of a questioning tone. I looked at him and said "You're a scaredy cat" to which my 3 year old Jamie promptly replied with "I got your scaredy cat right here".

Of course I thought that was so funny that I called Janet to tell her. Once I hung up Jamie asked me who was on the phone. I said "your mom". To my dismay, she shot back with "your mom"...I said "No it really was your mom"...only to hear "it really is your mom" in response...

I am doomed! and I have no one to blame by myself...(resigned sigh of despair)

I can just picture Jamie being SO DARN cute when she says it, but you're right, not so cute if she were say, oh, 16 or so, or gets sent to the office for saying it to her teacher one day! That's the hard part, it's cute now, but..... :)
