Reality Bites

Hard to believe I was lounging by a pool drinking Bloody Mary's 48 hours ago.

Reality bitch slapped me today.

First morning of kindergarten drop off will never be forgotten, but not for the usual reasons.
Went out to the car to find it dead. One of Gibby's favorite pastimes is playing with the overhead lights.

Pulled out my phone to make some calls, but for some reason could not make any outgoing calls.
After a complete mental freak out I realized I was going to have to call upon a ne ighbor. Luckily Ted a retired fireman was home and saved the day by taking us all to school.

Drop off went pretty well with minimal tears, but shit was about to get REAL real.

As we round the corner onto our street I see that my car is in my neighbors front yard. Apparently in my distress I forgot to put on the emergency brake and my car rolled down our driveway, crossed the street, hit my neighbors car and ran up on the curb. Normally such a scene would make me scream but I just hung my head in defeat.

Luckily no one was hurt and insurance will make it as painless as possible but seriously.....WTH!

First Day of Kindergarten. 
Also, Clementine pooped herself at Hullabaloo today and had to have a bath in the sink.

The Dog Days of Summer

I am beginning to see a pattern.

School ends and it's summer. 
Time for swimming, vacations, fireflies, outdoor festivities, and loads of exciting days making memories to last a lifetime with my beautiful children.

By the end of summer my dream has become a nightmare.

It is all I can do not to heavily medicate myself until I hear the first school bell ring.

9 days and counting.

Censor THIS!

So the Bumper Sticker Incident got me thinking.....Is Hullabaloo a good environment for kids????

I mean I don't want to be known as 'that mom' at the kids school.  I grew up with plenty of art nudity and the like, but it was less Burlesque and more Baroque.

Would you let your kids play with mine????

Zappa Crappa in the john.


Bet you did not know that about me.

Lovely Rita.
