Every morning Jade gets her "mommy fix" by comming into my bed after she wakes up to snuggle my hair. Not me. Just my hair. This is an everyday thing. This morning though, as she's inhaling my greasy two-day old unwashed hair, she tells me of her new "friend" Sarah. Aparently, she met Sarah last night in her room, and they were playing together. She even let Sarah sit in her princess chair. (that's a big deal) I asked what Sarah looked like, but she couldn't give me a description. She just said that she's a big girl with a "really bad headache on her cheek". Mmhmmmm. Weird. Jade wants to play with her today too, or..rather, tonight....because that's when Sarah comes to play. I'm guessing she's been dreaming this, hence the "playing at night thing". Jade also said Sarah is sick, but nice, and keeps telling me now she's her new best friend. Okay, here comes the weird, and maybe a little freaky part. I ask her one more time to try to give me a little more of a detailed description of what she looks like. I say "so can you try really hard to remember what Sarah looks like?" Jade points BEHIND me, giggles, and puts her finger over her lips and says "ssshhhhhhh", and laughs hysterically at the wall. I ask "what's so funny?", and again, she laughs, looks BEHIND me at the wall, points to...nothing, and says "sssshhhhh".
Yeeeeaaaahhhhh. I look behind my shoulder, see nothing there, and pick her up, and leave the room. Creepy much??? Oh, and 10 minutes later, Jade's Barney computer which is across the room, and UNTOUCHED decides to start singing. I just looked at it and thought, "That's great. Just great".

It's happened. My almost 5 year old has lost his first tooth. Two days before it fell out I noticed it looked a little funny, so I wiggled it, and saw that it was loose. I thought I had weeks before that thing came out. When I was a kid it seemed like my loose teeth took FOREVER to fall out. Not for my kid. Like I said, two days after I noticed it was loose, Jared gets down from the table where he was eating his muffin, washes his hands, plops himself on the kitchen floor to talk to me while I do the dishes, and as he's talking to me, I notice a hole in his bottom row of teeth. So on closer inspection I notice that, yes, his tooth has indeed come out. The question is when and how! So, of course I ask him, since he hasn't volunteered that information. He very casually tells me that as he bit into his muffin, it came out, and he put it on the table. WHAT?? Why is this not a big deal to him?? Doesn't he know about the tooth fairy? I mean, seriously...THE TOOTH FAIRY!! What kid wouldn't get excited about that? Well, apparently mine. (By the way the going rate for a tooth nowadays is a whole stinking dollar!)
So, I go look on the table, and there it is on the place mat, just lying there, no big deal...just his first missing tooth EVER!! I tried to get him all excited about it, but he just rolled his eyes and gave me that look I used to give my parents when I wanted them to shut the hell up. So, I did, and he ran off to put on his ninja costume to stalk his sister. *Sigh* boys.

I just experienced one of the most uncomfortable feelings in my life. I just finished reading a SEX SCENE from the novel my grandfather wrote! EEEEEEWWWWWWWW! And, let me tell you, it was explicit people!! I had to read things like "...revealing his own well muscled body and the erect phallus of his masculinity." And then, and THEN, as if that wasn't bad enough, he goes on to describe how in detail, they reach orgasm. ORGASM! And there was moaning. He used words like "delicate pulsations", and "eruptive explosion", "thrusting", and.. well...just...EWWWW! I mean, it's pornographic! Grandpa why? Why did you have to do that to me? I mean SERIOUSLY. Wasn't there a better way to write a love scene? Like, oh, I don't know...SKIPPING IT ALL TOGETHER? Okay, I hope and pray to GOD that was the last time I'll ever have to read words like that from my dear, sweet grandpa's novel. I have never even heard this man utter a bad word in his life, and he is the sweetest, gentlest person I have ever met. I would much rather pretend my mother came from immaculate conception, rather then his "stirring loins." (not that the book was about him, but just the fact that he wrote those words was just WRONG) Grandfathers don't have loins. They just don't. They have big comfy chairs, and magic tricks, and lots and lots of great Wisconsin cheese.
Now, excuse me while I go throw up.
