The time I brought an entire family to tears..

This is Peter. Peter is 3 years old.
He is wearing an umpire mask.

I looked after Peter quite a bit this summer. Yesterday was my last day and as I was getting ready to leave Peter started tapping me..

Peter: “What time will you be here tomorrow?”
Me: “I’m sorry but I can’t come over tomorrow”
Peter: “But whyyyyy not?!?!”
Me: “Because I am moving”
Peter (who is starting to cry at this point) “Where are you going!?”
Me: “College”
Peter (crying a little harder now) “Like Steve from Blues Clues?”
Me: “Yes, just like Steve”
Peter (sobbing at this point) “I hate college, college is stupid”

I picked him up and gave him a hug then as I tried to put him down he wrapped his legs around my waist and refused to let go. At this point his mom started crying to along with his big brother.

Way to go Annette, You brought an entire family to tears.

Step Moms and Robotic Bugs

Every time I visit boyfriends step mother I come back with a bunch of junk she tells me is priceless that nobody would want. This is the same woman who bought me extra large lingerie for Christmas a few years ago. I went to visit her Sunday and in just one visit I came back with enough ridiculous gifts I couldn’t even twitter about them all because it would take more than 140 characters.

The first gifts was this Hex Bug, it reacts to light and sound like a real bug. She was so excited about it I had to respond in the same manner and tell her how cool I thought it was.
It’s a robotic bug, I hate bugs. Not to mention its about as hard to operate as a toy car but on the side of the package it says “Don’t for children under 14 years.” Somebody needs to check their grammar and what kind of 9 year old kid can’t play with a toy bug?

Next gift, The amazing non stop top.
With a built in light show, need I say more?

Gift number three, Cyber Clean (aka Schmutz absorber aka GAK)
Apparently I am suppose to use it to clean my keyboard, yea that’s not happening. I don’t care if it works, it smells like bleached puke.

Then she gave me some tea, I was excited about it because I love tea. Then I found out the tea had been opened and used, she gave me her leftovers.

She also gave me some honey straws to go in my tea. That would have been ok if they weren’t expired and black licorice flavored honey. But they were.

To top it off she gave me a circular storage box she says I should use it to hold soap and stuff, she used to use it to hold her pajamas. It has a hole in the bottom. Boxes with holes in them don’t work.

Hey let’s accessorize giant pink ants then put them on display!

For Love 21 (a forever 21 accessory store) has the greatest window display ever! (and by greatest I mean AWFUL)

Sometimes when I’m in a bikini I like to take my giant pink ant for a walk, after of course I accessorize my little pet with lots of gold bling. You nailed in For Love 21, bravo.

Nothing about this window display makes me want to go inside and shop at this store, I shop there anyway despite the ant walking bikini wearing women display.

During a preschool gymnastics class that I coach;

3 year old Anna: “Do you have a mommy?”
3 year old Hannah: “Of course I do!”
Anna turns around and asks another girl: “Do YOU have a mommy?”
4 year old Samantha: “Yep!”
Finally Anna looked at me and asked: “Coach…Do you have a mommy?”
I nodded.
Anna: “I don’t know if I have one…all I know is I have to move far away today”

My heart broke. I haven’t seen Anna since, she was adopted by a family and had to move that day. She has lived in 5 different foster homes. God I hope she is doing well. She was seriously the sweetest and most easy going 3 year old I have ever met.

That tiny conversation with a 3 year old made me really appreciate my mom
