Friday's Random Thoughts

Happy Friday!!  What a week it has been!  I can't believe how busy it is around here with getting ready for Autumn, activities, family, and schedules!  I need a clone!

- The Little Prince has aquired a taste for a new food.  I am quite embarassed to even admit this.  The Furry Prince is not happy about it at day I gave the Little Prince a dog cookie for the Furry Prince and rather than hand it over he decided to taste it...and hasn't looked back!  Aparantly dog cookies are the greatest thing ever as someone feels the need to have a meltdown in front of the pantry from time to time and when someone does get his little hands on them he eat them as fast as he can before mommy or daddy can take them away.  Yes.  I have that child.  **The dog cookies are all natural and human grade**

- As I was getting my closet cleaned out and ready for Autumn clothes I realised I hadn't worn a single skirt all Summer. I have no idea why except I just never had any opportunities.  Next Summer I need to make an effort to get them all worn.

- Fastest way to be unfollowed by me on twitter...spend an afternoon complaining about the crying toddler on the same flight as you.  Especially if you dont have children.  And start talking about how parents should be required to have a licence in order to have children especially if you base their parenting skills on one very high stress situation.  Karma is a b*tch. 

- My inlaws now know about the anniversary party and started off saying they dont want a party - does that sound a bit ungrateful?  The Suburban Prince thinks it seems a bit arrogant.  We didn't want to tell them but it was just way too hard finding a place we could get them to and also get all of their friends to.  So now they know and instantly MIL started trying to make suggestions but we told her she isn't allowed an opinion or to even bring it up.

- I finished reading The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.  I have to say this one wasn't my favourite of the entire series but I was very satisfied with how the story ended.  It's a shame there wont be any more as I actually quite like Lisbeth.

- Thank you to everyone who left us Anniversary wishes!  We appreciate every single one!  High Heeled Life and her man sent us a beautiful flower arrangement - a photo is below!  Thank you HHL!

- I have had almost 900 unique hits on my blog since September 5th...20 from Toronto - that's enough for a great meetup!  I would love to know who they all are!  If you are one of my Toronto visitors please say hi or drop me a line and perhaps we can all get together for a great Toronto blogger party!  A unique hit is not how many times a site has been visited but how many individual IP addresses have visited.  If someone visits 45 times it will only count them once.  I am blown away at how often my blog is visited - I had no idea! 

- We were having a nightmare of a time whenever we went to change the Little Prince's diaper - to the point I was getting very concerned about why he was freaking out about taking off his diaper.  Turns out he wants to potty train and felt we were depriving him of the chance to sit on the potty.  Boys are so complicated!

- I am working on some chemistry in the form of a pumpkin pie martini.  *hic* I expect to have my concotion perfected by the end of the weekend tho I might be blogging from rehab by then!

Don't mind my ugly fireplace - it came with the house and is being replaced.

Have a fabulous day!

What a beautiful arrangement! Little boys (and big ones for that matter!) are a puzzle that I don't think I will ever figure out-LOL!
Hope you are have a wonderful weekend!

I think I wore a skirt once, and didn't get to any of my was a cold summer here this year.

Once you get your pumpkin pie martini perfected, please share the recipe! It sounds DIVINE!

Have a great weekend!

Love your Friday comments!!
I was born and raised in Toronto, living in London Ontario now!

Flying with my kids is always so stressful, but I've been lucky enough to always be surrounded by either passengers who are SOOO sympathetic, or people who are at least smart enough to shut up and try to ignore us! Still, for the reasons you just alluded to, I prefer a good road trip!
Congrats on the potty training breakthrough and the anniversary. And for goodness sake, let us know how that martini works out for you! Yum!

Toad said...

Your Friday comments are the best part of my week. Have a great weekend.

I went through a phase when I was 2 where I would try and sneak dog biscuts to eat!!! Thankfully I grew out of it!

Ms. Bake-it said...

Happy Friday to you!

That is too cute! My boys did the same thing and that is what prompted me to start making my own dog treats. I was very grateful though when they got out of that phase!

Love my skirts. I lived in mine all summer and probably will be able to for a little longer.

Wow you are tough! ;) I am sure that despite their initial misgivings, the in-laws will enjoy the party and be happy and thankful that you went through all that trouble.

What a pretty bouquet from HHL.

Oh, the joys of potty training!

I cannot wait to hear about the final results of your pumpkin pie martini creation!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Yay .. I'm so happy the arrangement arrived , without the numerous detours of the Post office..LOL...

Awe, LP is going to be a big boy in big boy pull ups!!!! Knowing that you are most careful about your family's nutrition, I certain that extends to FuryPrincess's food .. natural and good...XO HHL

The dog cookie story is hilarious! Oh and I always feel so bad for parents on planes. Even the best baby can cry non stop on flights. I know those parents must feel so beside themselves.

EntertainingMom said...

dog cookies are probably loads healthier than human cookies... now create a cocktail with that in mind! LOL

Travelbugmom said...

HAHA, maybe you could "treat" your potty trainer with a dog biscuit!!

.....please let me know about that pumpkin pie martini!

Have a fantastic fall weekend!

MCW said...

Nice to know that boys are complicated at a very young age...I guess it is hard to change :)

Anonymous said...

You know, boys *are* complicated, it's so good to see it starts early!

And I love your other random thoughts, especially the one about quickest way for someone to nudge you into unfollowing.

Sending you a smile,

Looking forward to that pumpkin pie martini you are perfecting! Hope your weekend is going well. =)

You had me at pumpkin pie martini!

The Mrs. said...

You do have a lot going on! Dog cookies, diapers, skirts, and pumpkin martinis!!! LOL. Hated potty training Landon, it took forever. I expect Coco will just saunter in and do it in one shot!

I can't swear to it, but I think BG has eaten a few doggie biscuits in her day. HHL is the best, isn't she? How did you fiqure out your unique hits?
