So, what's up with you?

Hmmm...Sarah Palin...interesting. I may like this dame. Time will tell.

In the mean time I'm planning my strategy for the 2012 presidential race. I'm tossing in my hat. You read that right, FarmWife in '12. Make plans to vote now!

We still have 3 little boy puppies living at our house. They really need to go live at someone else's house.

BabyGirl & Logan got back together again yesterday. I'm tempted to stop trying to keep up with it all....but I don't want to seem disinterested in the drama that is her life.

Pete & Penny (the tea cup poodles) have come to live at Bucka & Busha's this week. I haven't seen them yet, but will very soon. I can't wait. Pete weights 1 3/4 pounds. Penny tips the scale at 3/4 of a pound! Tiny little things.

Tomorrow is your last day to enter the Hot Mama Revolution $25 shopping spree challange (see button in side bar). Please, go enter! Last time I checked I was the only one linked in. I want to win this, but not by default folks!!

We're enjoying our time as a family of four every day while BabyGirl & #1 Son are slaving away at school. Husband & B.B. are wrestling right now. Bitsy is watching closely, screaming, and jumping in occasionally! And grocery shopping is a BREEZE!

And for your reading enjoyment, an ancedote from earlier this week.

The boys were tucked in & supposed to be going to sleep when I heard them chatting. The chatting soon turned to shouting, but I couldn't tell what the argument was about. I opened the door & said, "You two better be quiet & go to sleep now or you're going to be in trouble." #1 Son rolled over in bed to face me & said, "Mom, does God pee out of his penis or not?!" Oy. I'm not sure who was arguing the affirmative and who was against the idea, but the debate was very heated. They both started shouting at me & I seriously considered backing out of the room slowly & pretending I didn't hear the question.

Eventually I composed myself & said, "Well, when Jesus was on Earth he had to pee out of His penis just like you." They asked about now & I said, "God is a spirit, so I'm not sure He even needs to pee." To which #1 Son replied, "What's a spirit?" Not wanting to get into a theological discussion with a 5 year old and a nearly 4 year old I told them we'd talk about it later, turned and ran.

Now that's something that the Children's catechism doesn't deal with. While it does mention that "God is a spirit and does not have a body like we do", it doesn't talk about the excretory system. Good luck with that one.

As for Sarah, well, I like her too. BUT....even though her first four children are all teens or almost teens (and one is apparently in the Army) and even though her husband quit his job to stay home, I still take issue with a woman taking the second highest job in the land when she just recently had a baby with special needs. The just had a baby part would have been reason enough - you know my DNA on being a stay-at-home mommy. Yes, I know nannies exist, and I know stay-at-home dads exist. BUT, can you imagine how Max or Dylan would have gotten as far as they have in life if their mommies hadn't devoted full-time hours to therapies and parenting the way they do? Those boys are an example of great hands-on parenting, and I feel sorry for Sarah's baby if she does end up being VP. But then again, Biden is a sucky choice too. In a perfect world, Obama and McCain would kiss and make-up, and then they'd run together. At least, that's my pipe dream anyway.

FarmWife said...

Yeah, and if they ran away together neither one would get to be president!! Yipee!!

Grace said...

I laughed like an idiot at that conversation between your boys! Hilarious!!

OK - I don't have a clue about the passing of bodily fluids from a you're on your own with that one.

I think Palin is ok...and I'm sorry Inkling, Obama just doesn't feel right to me...McCain doesn't either, but he feels more right than Obama...and you know what? Any woman with a husband who'll man up and stay home with the kids is a good vote for me, not to mention the fact that if she can govern a state like Alaska, where everything is harder, I think she'll do ok...besides, if she can successfully raise a special needs baby, doesn't that make her an even better candidate to be 2nd in command of our country? just my 2 cents...I try not to discuss politics with my friends and loved ones...I get a lil too het up about it.
