Send in the Clowns

First things first. I received the following wonderful postcard from Dr Sunrayz.

R's postcard

Now if I were a guy I would worry about how her postcard was twice the size of mine but I'm not, so I won't.


Thanks for the wonderful words Sun. I'm heading to London to see my cousin in the springtime and will definitely look you up.

I've had a rollercoaster of a time the last couple days. Unfortunately life doesn't come with an instruction manual and sometimes you just have to wing it. In the meantime enjoy some pictures of my weekend.

The Girl and I went on a shopping expedition while D was away.

At the Pumpkin "Patch" which was more like a parking space with a few dozen pumpkins.

Shopping for Halloween costumes.

The Girl is going to be a pink leopard.

The Boy in some sort of swine mask. In the end, he chose a knight costume.

Birthday party for the Boy's friend.

You learn something new everyday. Today's lesson: The girl is deathly afraid of clowns.

Check out the homemade cake. It was a carousel with horses and a canopy (missing in the photo)

Mint! I am so glad you got the card :) I picked the bigger card as I thought it looked so much better than a smaller one. Plus, I love the girl's pics- i was missing 'seeing' the girl and 'the boy' on your blog. Like I have said before- she looks sooooo adorable. And- I am already very excited that you will be around in London next year!! That's the best news I have heard on a cloudy monday morning!

Minty: C'mon, wear this weird mask.
The Boy: No!
Minty: C'mon, do it for Mommy.
The Boy: No!
Minty: C'mon, Mommy needs a picture for her blog!
The Boy: No!
Minty: Put it on or I take your picture without the mask and post it so that every pyscho and klepto in America knows exactly who you are and follows you home from school and steals ALL your toys.
The Boy: -puts on mask-

Sun:Thanks again! It looks great on my fridge.

Lavi: I had your address from the CD exchange so I sent one to you. : )

Tart: Thanks!

Jay: Shit. Did you record the whole conversation or just that bit?? For the record I didn't say the klepto would steal ALL his toys.. just his beloved Thomas the Train.

Vig: JUST received the first one today. Thanks!

weekends lesson:
whenever you want 'the girl' to do something or leave the other, tell her otherwise if she doesnt obey a clown will come and scare her.

a little parental blackmailing goes a beautiful long way... sometimes...
