During the whole commotion my adorable nephew Alex has now shown Lilly and all the adults one by one the fish. You see there is a hole in the middle of their floating deck/bar that catfish hang out hoping to be fed. This is really quite disturbing. You can purchase a cup of fish food and feed them, or simply empty your plate as one man did, and watch them attack each other for food. Really just disturbing.
For the most part dinner went without another hiccup simply because the waitress did not return. Except one thing, it was now time to pay. Ok again 3 with 3 without 3 waters, 1 kids meal, calamari, 4 bloody mary's 1 margarita 1 SWEET tea and 1 long island ice tea. I know it can be difficult to split that but not really I go do that for you too, but that really would be too long. So Mom and Dad get their check, correct total wrong food. Keri gets hers wrong amount $ and food, compensated with a cash back option from credit card, Tim gets his... ours had all the alcohol and the most food. How is it that is was only $47? Tim the honest man that he is fixed it paid the correct amount and that was the end of the Groggy Dawg...

Everything was good to start other than I was exhausted. I got all three of the girls dressed and ready for the adventures that were brought our way. We were even early to school for Lilly, that is when it all started! We made it to her class room and then I realized that Caitlin smells awful, Lilly's cup is still in the car and her blanket is sitting at home on top of the washing machine. I then begin to explain that Lilly is potting training for real this time and she has done wonderful since Thursday last week. Seriously the only accidents have been out and I really wasn't paying attention to the time. Anyway Lilly starts the sad face, you know the one where the smile is actually upside down and the eyes are watery. So I let her walk with me to the car to get her cup, BIG MISTAKE! There she is on the sidewalk laying down and pitching a walleyed fit. So I changed Caitlin's diaper and she is still pitching a fit. She thinks she is getting to go home. Nope! Today is my break. So I pick her up on the right hip and Caitlin is on the left hip and somehow we make it through the doors. I couldn't hold her the whole time so now I attempt to make her walk, instead she stands there and pees! You have got to be joking right. We go to her classroom to get her backpack for the "extras", we is Caitlin and I. Lilly is in the foyer crying. By now it is forget it lets go home. Great now she is happy. Except pulling out of the parking lot I then remember we don't have anymore clean panties for Lilly; I took Monday off from laundry duty. So we swing by Target pick up some new panties cause you can never have too many for a 2 year old. She pees in the pantie aisle! I hung up on Joe and bee line to the check out, this is where Caitlin decides she wants to ride the conveyor belt. Of course I got the only cart that didn't have both sides to the seat belt thingy. I got my total of a whopping $11.68 and where is my debit card? It is MIA... I have to write a check. At least I forgot to take it out of my purse last night. I asked the check out girl who now thinks I am a wild crazy woman please tell me it is at least 10am. She responds with the wrong answer, "You are 1/2 way there." Oh and my cell phone is ringing.
We make it home after lots and lots of tears, mostly mine; and everything for the most part became normal. Lilly was still Lilly and Caitlin just turns the TV on and off laughing almost hysterically at it. Natalie came home from school did her homework and went outside. No more accidents, no more tears from me and I actually got to wish Mom a Happy Birthday. Joe is getting burgers as we speak (he took Lilly which is why I am able to type this.)
So to answer the question Am I smarter than a 2 year old? I would have to say... Not today!

Me with my big blown dry hair. A neon green and black striped shirt with sewn in vest. Of course a matching skirt. Puffy socks, 2 pair alternating colors on each foot, and white keds! I would look so hot. If you don't believe me just look at my fourth grade pic. I have no shame. So just for fun here is a then and now pic of me and NKOTB! Enjoy.

So far it is not even 10 am and my day has consisted of 3 cups of coffee, 1 trip to the elementary school, 1 trip to wal-mart and so far about 30 minutes of Elmo. When I pulled the tanker into the drive way this morning I stepped out and barely missed the "Daddy" worm. Needless to say my boy, uh I mean middle girl noticed immediately!
I am just glad that I was able to grab the camera fast enough to capture the conversation. I have no idea in toddler talk what was said but it seemed to be a happy time for both. Lilly was laughing and pointing and the worm almost seemed to be dancing. All the while Caitlin has found her way into the front yard and learned that rocks slammed together make a fun noise. They also make for a nice mid-morning snack.
Joe's One year late 30th party was this past Saturday. It was great. I kept this a secret for nearly a month and budgeted so well he didn't even notice the little extras here and there. That morning Natalie had her school carnival and she asked for a Daddy date. Lilly was invited too. 2 hours later I have to whole house decorated the cake should be ready and people are on their way and in walks Joe with Lilly! The look on his face was like... "what the heck, why are there streamers in our foyer?" All that secrecy and planning for him to find out his surprise party was no longer a surprise just 1 hour before! But surprise or not is was a great party. We had hot dogs and Frito pie. There were 3 cakes, one like a hamburger (sorry I didn't get a picture) a cookie cake stating Happy Birthday 30+1 and Cheesecake! Yummy! To top it all off only 10 out of the 20 something people came down with the stomach bug. Again my apologies I swear I cloroxed everything before you came. For the rest of you I promise not to be so eventful for the next party.
