So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Random observations of children

Are they taught in the womb how to tiptoe and sneak up on mom to scare the snot out of her? All three of my children are the stealthiest creatures on the planet.

And, I think God made their little heads to be like rubber. Stinkerbelle fell off a barstool today, which left a nasty bruise on her cheekbone, a little bit of redness inside her eye and nothing else. You'd never know anything happened to her once I gave her a "cold football" to hold. We have some of those re-usable football icecubes and they now serve to replace the frozen ice-cube that goes in the Boo Boo Bunny. Often, they don't require the services of Boo Boo Bunny anymore. You get an owie in our family, you get a cold football to make it better.

Hot Rod came running out of the bathroom earlier and announced "I had diarrhea at school one day!" as he is running past and into the other room. Not exactly sure why he felt compelled to share that piece of trivia, but he did. You never know what that child is going to say. You really don't. He has been playing soccer with the 10- 11- and 12-year-olds on his big brother's team. He's only 6. A bit of an overachiever, he cries if he doesn't beat all of them in skills matches. He does beat some of them legitimately.

Pickle still insists he wants a padawan light saber, but at $65 a pop, I don't think he'll get one anytime soon.

and note to self, never let baby take a nap at 3 p.m. She is still awake at 10 p.m.

    If I won the lotto I would tottally buy pickle a light-saber. But for now I have to get money for UND.

    Hot Rod hasn't thrown a fit since I told him if he continues that he will not be allowed back at practice.

    He holds his own with many of the older players.

    Cashin - very nice of you, dude. If I had money to burn, I'd buy them for all three children. But, until I write my Tracey Frame tell-all book, I'm going to have to buy them Bioncles and Hot Wheels tracks for Christmas.
