This is Binx. Binx is now almost 3 years old. Binx goes every 2 weeks to get a trim or bath from the groomer (Terri Gaylord....hehe, it's fun to say). Anywho! We all love how yummy they make him smell. Yes...he really does smell yummy. "Oooh let me smell him!" Kaleb will have his face in his fur (ok..technically it's hair) smelling him for like 10 minutes.
Ok, back to my subject. Pets. Binx is such a good dog. He plays really well with Kaisey, and he tolerates Kaleb. So when I got Binx home today in all his "freshness" I started thinking about all the pets I've had...cats,parakeets, hamsters, guinea pigs, a rabbit, a chinchilla (loved him..he was cool). We "tried out" a couple dogs in this marriage. (Here comes my stories)
I had Meeko when Trent and I got married. Meeko was a freakishly large cat. This cat would scare the crap out of all of the babysitters. He 'd claw his way onto the deck then he'd walk around the railing, and stare with those flourescent eyes and claw at the window. SCREEECH!!!!
Second there was Jedi. Now Jedi was a dog, who hated Trent. Anytime Trent would get near him, he would cry at the top of his lungs, and he wouldn't stop until he felt "out of danger"...it was either Trent or the dog.....uhhh?!!
Then there was the hamsters that we thought were a good idea for Abbi. The first set, we went out of town and came home to their frail little bodies. To stop the crying, we just bought 2 more. This time, we made sure that they had PLENTY of food and water when we went out of town. HOWEVER, when we came back, there was 8 instead of 2.
So, we have a good dog, and we're just gonna stick with that. (UNLESS, I can talk Trent into one of those hairless cats!!!)
TIP OF THE DAY: (I'm sure everyone already knows about this, but it's new to me.) If you add 1/2 cup of water when you are browning hamburger, it actually pulls the grease away from the meat!!
7/22/09 We were at the store and I pointed out a bedspread that I liked. Kaleb says, "Mom, that's Goth." I giggled and said asked him what he thought Goth was. He told me that "Goth means you like black."
3/30/2009 We were at Target and Kali saw a new bobble head, "Mom, I want the "cowpitter". Which is catapillar in Kali-nese.
1/15/2009 Kaleb says, "Mom, is that toy gonna come out of my paycheck?"
12/22/2008 Abbi "Hey, it's the Eve, of the Eve, of Christmas Eve!"
12/19/2008 Kaleb asked "Mom, is coloring an exercise for your hand?"
12/15/2008 Kali says, "Ooops mom...sorry it was an ACCI-DIDN'T." The funniest part, is that she's been saying that for about 3 years. I finally had to tell her that the word is ACCIDENT.
11/2/2008 Kaleb was working on his spelling words. I told him to spell 'we'. He says, "W-i-i."
I was making dinner, when Abbi says, "Mom, I need a fork," and Kaleb says, "Mom, can you get me a cup?" and Kali says, "guys, she's not an octopus!" 10/19/2008
When Kaleb was about 2, I was ordering at Sonic, and I ordered grill cheese sandwich's for the kids. Kaleb began crying, and I asked him what was wrong. He told me, "I don't want it girl cheese, I want it boy cheese!"
This lady in front of me was driving terribly. I kept saying "Lady!" Well, I finally gunned the car to go, and the drinks from McDonalds, spilled all over the car. Kali says, "Her tripped us!" Kali was 4 years old.
When Kali was 3, she found a pair of her shorts in her drawer. She put them on. It was still winter, so I told her she had to wear pants. Kali said, "I am. Little pants mom."
