Oh, Oh Shrimpie (singing to the tune of Prince’s “Oh Sheila”)

Um yeah, I don’t know…just go with it and sing it in your head!  :)

It’s crazy busy at work again (read as: “still”) and having laptop issues last night didn’t help a bit.  I slept almost at midnight uninstalling stuff and clearing cache, etc.  I woke up at 3am to see if anything was better.  Nope.  called my helpdesk at work and all they could do at that point was log a ticket. Woke up at 7am to see if anything has improved.  Nada.

Anywho, laptop issues have now been resolved, but don’t you wish you could just call HelpDesk on your kids at times?  I, mean, I guess that’s what Nannies/Babysitters/grandmas are for, but um, we are not privy to that right now in our new mid-western life.  Too bad my MIL left already – she was a great help!   Shrimpie’s been more than a handful lately…more than 2 handfuls or 3 even.

As of 1pm CST, Shrimpie has managed to:

A) Wake up at 8:30am.
B) Wake up her sisters (by hitting them).
C) Beat up her sisters throughout the morning.
D) Climb chairs and furniture.
E) Spill water all over bathroom sink.
F) Be roommates with Buddy (in Buddy’s crate!).
G) Catch some “Bubble Guppies” and “Sesame Street”.
H) Throw cereal all over the table and floor.
I) Break an egg by throwing it onto the kitchen floor.
J) Nap.
K) All of the above…

TGIF

never a dull moment w/this girl! she got herself in the crate and was trying to close it.  thank goodness Buddy is such a great tempered dog!

 

Just Droppin In…

Hope y’all had a great Easter weekend…or Passover…or just a great weekend overall :)

As you can imagine, Easter was a busy one for us…3 lil kids and a pup.  My grammar school friend said it best:

“Easter Irony:  HE comes back to life…meanwhile, Easter sucked the life out of me!”

For now, here’s a quick pic of our 2 babies: Shrimp showin’ Buddy her Easter Eggs…I’ll post more tomorrow, I hope.  I have a hot hubby’s birthday dinner to get ready for (HAPPIEST BIRTHDAYS TO YOU, oh hot one!) and then some cleaning – especially since the SD comes in from NJ tomorrow afternoon.

WW: Buddy

Ok, I’m 1 day behind w/Wordful Wednesday…Besides working and being a WAHM and that the big girl is home from Spring Break this week which leaves me all 3 at home during the day, I’ve got this little guy now too…In case you haven’t met him yet, his name is BUDDY…

Buddy @ 6wks 6 days

He’s a sleepy pup, but I guess they all are at this age. I haven’t a clue, this is my 1st puppy / dog / 4-legged friend…Poor pDaddy is training Buddy and the rest of us at the same time…ahahah…

Everyone thinks he’s a Golden Retriever, but he’s a Fox Red Lab and he just happens to be 7 weeks today! Happy 7 Weeks, Bud! Once he wakes up after his nap (again), I’ll try to get more pics of him. He does need his 7 week portrait…lol

(pics above were from yesterday where he was 6 wks and 6 days).

New Addition – Cuteness Overload!

I’ve had posts (in my head) lined up…posts about shoes, skincare, makeup, spring break, activities, etc…I wanted to do them late last week and maybe over the weekend when he had some downtime…Instead, I’ve been a bit preoccupied b/c pDaddy decided he would surprise us on Thursday night…with this guy:

Buddy

Everyone, meet Buddy…the newest addition to our family! He’s a Fox Red Lab and is about 6.5 weeks old now. pDaddy and I always talked about getting a yellow lab, later in at some point in the future. But, I guess he’s been searching and fell in love w/this lil guy…as have the girls and I. I’m still holding back a lil b/c I don’t want Shrimpie getting jealous and because I’ve never had a 4-legged friend before…just some fish and birds and bunnies…never a dog. Don’t have a clue how to take care of one, but I’m learning. Good thing he still likes to sleep a lot :)

Buddy's naptime

I think what did pDaddy in, besides his cute puppy dog eyes, are Shrimp’s love of dogs. Our best friends back in NJ have a lil cute Shitzu and she would laugh and giggle and wouldn’t be able to contain her excitement around her. I’d feel so bad for that dog b/c Shrimp would always try to tug on her fur, ears, tail, etc…Anytime Shrimp sees a dog she gets all happy and giddy and just uber excited. I think this pic, captures what I’m trying to say best:

Buddy & Shrimpie

I love how she looks like she’s playing “Follow the Leader” too. eheheheh

Now, apparently, National Puppy Day was on Friday, 03.23 and I wish we knew because we added the cuteness that is Buddy on Thursday, 3/22 (when he turned 6 weeks old).  So, Buddy, Belated Happy National Puppy Day! How can you not love this lil guy? Check out these puppy dog eyes!

Buddy!
