Don't you...Forget about me.

So, I have not blogged in seven days. I have no excuse. I am just lazy. Yep, I said it. LAZY. Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, right. I have been working, a lot. I've been trying to come up with some fun slogans for November ads for my family's restaurant... My favorite right now is:

The pilgrims served coneys at the 1st Thanksgiving... The indians let them stay.

Funny? I think it is, but maybe I'm wrong. Do you have any ideas?

On another note. Lucy is talking SO much! And she is FUNNY! She knows it too. She'll say something and just crack up at herself. The other night, when Kyle got home from work late, her took her outside to see the moon. She loves the moon, stars, and space. Anyway, we were out there looking at the moon and one of our owls buzzed Kyle & Lucy. I mean, I think the owl thought Lucy was a rabbit or something and was trying to swoop her up! She was less than okay with that. The following conversation took place:

Lucy: Let's go momma. Let's go inside.
Me: Ok, honey. We'll go inside.
Lucy: I scawed, momma.
Me: Of the owls?
Lucy: Yep. Owls scawy. Big and Scawy.

At this point Kyle and I are cracking up and I finally come to my senses and start recording her with my iPhone. Here is the video (I will transcribe below.)

Lucy: Owls, I say, "Stop it!"
Me: Owls stop it? (laughter) If you could say one thing to the owls, what would you say?
Lucy: I say, "tootoo" (laughter)
Kyle: What else would you say to them?
Lucy: Eeeee, Ow Ow.
Kyle: You would say owl?
Lucy: Woot Woot
Kyle: You can talk to them like that?
Me: Did you like the owl?
Lucy: (scared look)
Kyle: Did you like the owl outside?
Lucy: (more scared looks)
Me: Hey Lucy, did you like the owls ouside?
Lucy: No...
Me: No? Was it scary?
Lucy: (Really scared looks)
Kyle: Are you okay? Did it really scare you?
Lucy: Whoo. Yup. Owl suck. (Yes she said suck. Que my Mother of the year award.)
Kyle: Were you glad we came inside? Were you worried we were going to get hurt?
Lucy: Hurt?
Kyle: what can I do to make you happy?
Lucy: Happy? Owls?
Kyle: Owls make you happy?
Lucy: Yep!
Me: They do? I thought they scared you, the owls...
Lucy: Dad, dad! Owls (jibberish) owls, stop it! (jibberish)
Kyle: You want me to go outside and tell the owls to leave you alone?
Lucy: Noooo. Owls alone.
Me: Owls alone?
Kyle: Want me to say stop scaring Lucy?
Lucy: Oh, scared.
Kyle: You were scared?
Lucy: Yep.
Kyle: Okay, well what do you say I go outside and ask the owls to not scare you anymore, okay? And you and mommy can watch me do that from the window.
Me: What do you think about that Luce?
Lucy: Well...
Kyle & Me: Well...
Kyle: I'll be okay, I promise. Is that okay with you?
Lucy: Okay
Kyle: Okay, well lets go outside and I'll tell the owls to not scared you anymore.
Lucy: (Shakes head no.)
Me: Daddy's going to... Oh, you don't want daddy to go outside?
Kyle: I'll be okay.
Lucy: NO, no.
Me: Why can't daddy go outside?
Kyle: I'll be okay!
Lucy: (Shakes head no.)
Me: Is it because of the owls?
Kyle: Do you not want me to go outside because of the owls?
Lucy: No.
Me: Are the owls that scary?
Lucy: (Kiss for daddy.) Momma, go to bed now.
Me: Okay, lets go to bed...

I just can't get enough...

If you are anything like me, then you probably look at the our FAIR pictures at least 4 times a day. Ok, so you may not be quite as obsessed as me... But maybe you want to see a few more? I know I do! My momma put together this funky slide show, so you should probably watch it :) Please note: it takes a second to load!

It gets better...

Today, the girls are wearing our purple to show support for the all of our friends who are different. I am reflecting today on my high school years and it makes me kinda of sad. Although I was never on the receiving end of teasing or bullying, I was on the giving end. I was caught up in all that. I did bully those who were "weird" or "different," "nerdy" or "strange." I was a mean girl. Ugh, I feel terrible about it now. I used quotation marks on those sterotypes, because they are just that... Stereotypes. They don't define that person. I'm sure that I would like most of the people I wasn't very nice to back then, if I met them today. 

I teased those that were a little bit odd in my eyes. However, I NEVER once bullied someone for being gay. Not once. Ever. 

Not that excuses my bulling of other people, but I do feel good about that.

I hope to raise my beautiful girls to accept everyone for who they are, not what other people say they are. I hope that my girls will never be on the receiving or giving end of any bullying or teasing. I hope they will be confident enough to be the one that stands up and stops the bully. I hope they love everyone. I hope they are better than me. I want them to be nice girls. 

We love our friends who are gay. Like, beyond love. They are some of the best people I have ever met. And I am crushed by the thought that anyone would ever tease or bully them for being who they are. So, today I am saying that teasing in this household stops with me.

And you can quote me on that.

Over the weekend we had a little housegating party for the BIG game. If you live in Oklahoma or Texas, you know that the OU v UT game is basically the Superbowl. What is housegating, you ask? Well, it is only the greatest thing ever. We set up tents in the yard and brought out the TV and couches. We grilled burgers and brawts and had plenty of refreshments (read: beer!) The weather could not have been more perfect, 76• and sunny. Good food, good friends, and a great game! Oh, and OU won, of course :)

All pics by my lovely momma!

Lucy Lu and Ear Infections too!

If you follow my tweets (which you all should cuz I'm hilarious [and modest] [@jessmodestlyrox] HA!) you know that Lucy and I had to make that OH SO FUN night-time trip to emergency care. Luckily, we were in and out in about an hour. Its amazing how quickly you get seen with a screaming child! Yet when you feel like death on Christmas morning with a 1 week old baby and a 104• fever, you sit there for 4 hours. But that's an other story...

Well, Lucy has a double ear infection... And one of her tubes fell out. And she still has thrush which is not at all awesome because the antibiotics will feed the yeast, which makes it worse. Its a vicious cycle :( Anyway, They told us we need to go back to the ENT, gave us some perscriptions (read 4), and sent us on our way.

Lucy really dislikes going to the doctor. I breaks my heart. So, she got a couple of cute little buddies for being so brave (or throwing a gigantic fit...) So far the antibiotics seem to be working and she is acting like she feels better! Yay! Now, let just get rid of this thrush business!

The Patient

The Buddies - Gitzu & Kiki (Lucy named them!)

The Arsenal

**Jennifer, thanks for your suggestion of gentine violet! I tried to email you back, but it went to "no-reply":( The Ped said not to use that while on the Nystatin. Which they are on for a few more days. Once they are off of that, I'll give gentine violet a try!**
