Miscellany Monday...

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters is Monday again. Last week I participated in Miscellany Monday hosted by carissa at lowercase letters. I kind of like the randomness of this whole nonsense post. So, here are my bits of 'miscellaneous' ramblings.

ONE.  Why is it that when a you are enjoying an activity with your children (i.e. - playing with a bucket at the beach), does an older stray child wonder over and start to annoy your toddler??  Is that mean to say? My Anthony was playing nicely at the beach yesterday with a bucket and this little girl came over and grabbed it out of his hand telling me she wants to play with it. I am all about sharing, really I am, but don't grab and where is her mom?? I took the bucket and she was literally yanking it out my hand. This went on for 5 minutes. Moms, please watch your kids and teach them some manners.

TWO. There should be a law that moms are not allowed to 'work' past 8pm. Are there 'mommy laws' like child labor laws? Some senator somewhere should bring that to Congress!

THREE. I love to eat classic vanilla icing right out of the tub. I made cupcakes for Christopher's T-Ball team and I practically ate the whole container of icing before the cupcakes were out of the oven. That is problem.

FOUR.  Last week a few blogs were doing 'wedding posts.' I am just a New Yorker, we tend to spend way to much on weddings and give way too much money as a gift. I am talking anywhere from $200 - $500 depending on how close you are to the bride and groom. What do other states give as wedding presents?

Holy Lord, $200-$500 on wedding gifts?? Note to self: Invite New Yorkers to my next wedding. I usually give $50, $100 if I'm really close to the couple.

1. I am totally with you! I hate when kids annoy H while he is playing!

2. ALL about the Mommy laws. I used to work retail and we would be there until 1am. I wanna see my kid!

3. Mmmmm. Icing.

4. OMG, that's crazy! We almost NEVER give $$ for wedding,always shop from the registry and it's the same for every wedding I have been to. I mean, I'd love to receive $200-$500 though! ;-)

I'm with you on the Mommy Hours. Man, after 8pm I am EXHAUSTED. But, alas, I still keep working.

Have a wonderful Monday! Fun posts by the way.

I came over from Carissa's blog! What a wonderful post ;)

Wow that much money on a wedding present? The parents might give that much or siblings, but not everyone invited. That just sounds like a lot. Wow!

Have a wonderful week,

I am so with you on #2. I think we should be able to clock out:) Thanks for sharing your randomness!

I had the EXACT thing happen at the beach with Little last week! And yea, mom was nowhere to be found... So, then I nearly feel like a life guard to that stray kid but also a bouncer to our little party...
Mommy Laws are in full effect at our house. 8pm is in bed, doors shut, don't ask for anything. Pee if you need to but don't tell me about it unless you are sick. And she actually likes it that way. She says, Mom this is not a play area if I hang out with her at bed time...
I am inviting you 4 times to my wedding. Your hubby 4 times and your boys will be exempt because one will be marrying Little... :)

BTW, I have something for you!

I'm going to renew my vows just to invite you and your friends to my wedding! I haven't been to any weddings lately, but we would probably give $100 for a good friend's wedding gift, or buy gifts off the registry for that amount.

I also hate it when random kids come over and start playing with your toddler and taking their toys. I'm with you...where is the mother???
