Beautiful Blogger & Cute Convo

I received this award, from TWO wonderful Mommas in the past 24 hours.  Mama Hen at Mama's Little Chick was the first to pass this award to me.  If you haven't seen her blog, you should.  Every post contains an inspirational or thought provoking quote...and it's well, inspiring and uplifting, and it also helps that she's the go-to lady for keeping kids safe from toxins and chemicals, and all the other crap we pollute our world and our bodies with.  Thanks, Mama Hen!  I really appreciate it.
Then, much to my wonder and amazement, and before I could even draft this post, Amanda at Chasing Twins in Louboutins bestowed the same award upon me.  Wheee!  I live vicariously through Amanda, she has some serious fashion sense, fabulous taste in handbags and cutesy etsy things, and have ya'll seen her bathroom?  I could live in there!  She's all cute twinies and fabulous shoes, and I love the combination.  Thanks, Amanda for passing this on to me.

Now, this award has a few rules 1).  Thank those who gave it to you - I just did that ;) 2). Shout out 7 things that people may not know about me.  Here goes:

1).  Scratching a back on bare skin seriously grosses me out.  All that dead skin that could slough off and accumulate under my nails by dragging them down hubs' bare back, makes me wanna hurl.  Ewww.  I only scratch on top of a shirt. 

2).  I like to put Sweet N Low in my salsa.  I have an aversion to anything spicy and Ketchup is spicy to me.  Sugar in the salsa tames it down....and it just tastes good to my sweet palate.

3).   I always touch the top of the airplane door when boarding....I think it's good luck and if I forget to do it, or can't do it because my hands are full of kids then I secretly fear the plane will go down.

4).  I can tap dance.

5).  I once got pooped on my a cow - yeah, that really happened to me and to this day, I have trouble walking through a barn (not that I walk through many barns) and the tunnel of cow asses all lined up and ready to fire.

6).  I love drink a half gallon a day, LOVE MILK - odd considering #5.

7).  When I was 8 years old, I may or may not have convinced my 6 year old brother to repel out of a 2nd story bedroom window on bedsheets tied together. (he was not harmed in this stunt).

And the third rule is that I have to pass this on to 12 beautiful bloggers.  I'm going to go with 8, cause that is my favorite number and I'm feeling a little bit lazy.  If you aren't reading these, please do, and comment, and show some bloggy love - they are all worthy, I promise you.

And, because I can't leave you today without sharing something that is interesting, personal, or a combination of none of those.  I give you this conversation that happened between me and my nearly 4 1/2 year old.

One Random Night at 7 PM:
Cam:  Momma look what I did?  ::shuts eyes really tight::
Me:  Cam, what is that on your eyes?  ::Feels her eyelids::  It's sticky.
Cam:  It's my hello kitty eye stuff.
Me:  I thought that was for your lips?  That doesn't go on your eyes silly.  It will hurt your eyes.
Cam:  I didn't know.
Me:  Camdyn you have to always ask Momma when ever you want to use your make-up so that we can make sure we put it on in the right places (secretly, I'm cursing China and all the crap they make for kids, because I really don't know what is in kiddie "make-up" and I really don't like her using it.  I imagine it is full of lead and toxins, because hey, it's cheaper to make it that way).
Cam:  OOOOOO - Kay ::scampers off::

The Same Random Night, only now it's the morning because it is 4 am:
Me:  ::stirs while sleeping - jolts awake - WTF!!  Who is looking at me???:: CAM!  You startled me!
Cam:  Momma I want to put on my Hello Kitty Make-up.
Me:  ::grabs glasses because I can't see a damn thing::  CAM!  It's 4 am!  It's not time for make-up, it's the middle of the night.
Cam:  BUT MOMMMMMAAA!  You said that I needed to tell you if I want to use my make-up.  AND, I WANNA USE IT.
Me:  ::gets out of bed.  Walks Cam back to her bedroom.  Applies the Hello Kitty Lip Gloss::  Thanks for following directions, Cam.  Now your lips are pretty and you can go back to sleep.

Every time I think she isn't really listening, she actually is listening.  And then, she makes me pay for it in the most adorable way.

I also hate scratching bare backs! Except for my girls backs...that I can handle, but I'm not sure why? Otherwise, I can't stand the feeling.

Sonora said...

Wow! Thank you so much! It means so much to me that you thought of me for this. Thank you!
I am so with you on the back scratching. It totally grosses me out.
I LOVE the random stories. I love that she was simply obeying when she asked you at 4 in the morning. Hahaha! Kids are so funny!

Tunnel of cow asses?!? Bahahahahahahaha!! That's the funniest thing I've heard all day!

Meredith said...

Very interesting! I, too, don't like to touch backs!! I always thought it was nasty!!! And I also tap the side of the plane before boarding!!

And I have to admit...I laughed out loud at your 4AM wake up call. Now watch it happen to me!
