I'm a Sneak

I've been hiding the remote in my pocket since yesterday morning. It's worked very well, except for one instance last night when Livvie caught a peek of it and lost her ever loving mind, pulling on my sweat pants to try to get it out and shrieking. Rich managed to distract her, and the whole incident lasted about a minute and a half. This morning she has cried only twice, over commercials that came on before her Wiggles episodes. She looked for the remote both times, but gave up quickly and stopped crying almost instantly. Cancel that. She just got tired of the current Einsteins episode and started looking again.

In the Good News Department: It's been raining for 3 days now and it's supposed to rain all week. I'd like to thank Cyn for finally sending it this way from Seattle, because it's so desperately needed. Naturally it's spring break for the school kids, so we can't take Livvie to the mall play area this week because she'd end up getting trampled. Therefore we have no idea what to do to get her out of the house this week. I'm planning to call Borders to see if they still have Tiny Tots Story Time though.

I joined a local HUGE mommies group online yesterday. I also signed up for my area sub-group. Hopefully I'll be able to find some folks to get together with for play dates etc. It seems to be the usual group of mommies who are in fact overly concerned with redecorating their homes etc, but just maybe I'll be able to find another freak like me. You know, the kind of gal who actually does decorate her daughter's room with comic book heroes. Or similar. I'm just not all that comfortable with "normal" people. I wish I were. I'll certainly try to be though.

That's about it for today. Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday, and again, Cyn, thanks for the rain.

I feel non normal too :-). I am happy to be odd :-). Good luck with Livvie today and with the mom groups.

Dude, I wish I was there, with a kid, so we could have our freak mom play group.

I hope you find at least one other freaky mom near by. :)

You are welcome for the rain. Sorry it took so long to get there. I blame the post office!

I hope you find a non normal mommy or two to hang out with.

PS- I ran out of seizure meds today. Am thinking this maybe not so good.

We do not have Tiny Tot story time at our store right now. There are other special events going on, this month it has to do with the re-release of 'Dont Bump the Glump' one of Shel Silverstean's first releases.
