When the baby is in his high chair and holding his sippy cup off the table and over the kitchen floor, and I tell him “Don’t you dare drop that.”
Our Family just hit a pot hole in life….
aka, Nick is loosing his job and by no fault of his own.
Earlier today we learned that the Verizon Wireless center which he has spent over 9 years at is closing it’s business support center and condensing it’s customer support center. The worst part is that he only has 3 months before the center shuts down. The good news is he’s still getting paid for 18 weeks after and receiving a severance check which we’ll be saving and using for as long as we can.
But, God forbid, he can’t find a job in the next year…well…
In the meantime, we’re rethinking our strategy in where our income tax will go. We have things in the house in disarray that need repairing, Jena needs new glasses and has to see a dentist, bills still need to be paid and diapers still need to be bought.
So we ask that everyone keep us in their prayers and thoughts while we deal with the situation.
All Hell Breaks Loose
We just started season 7 of Supernatural but decided to take a short break to use the bathroom and get snacks….
Tiff: *breaths on cold window and starts writing on it* Relax, I’m just making a snowflake…
Nick: *washing mugs* I was about to say! It’s just a tv show! I hope she doesn’t think that would work!
Tiff: Now if I turned off the lights and started chanting, that would really scare you!
Nick: Woman, I will throw this mug at you! I don’t need no portals releasing demons up in my house!
Tiff: That’s true. It’s bad enough when you go to he bathroom!
Nick: FUUUUCCCKKK YOOOOOUUUU!!
ONCE AGAIN, TITTIES IS THE DEAL BREAKER!
Months ago, I made a status on facebook that went like this:
Can someone explain to me how titties is a deal breaker?
Me: *is given box to Dead Island by 9 year old boy…looks to parent* Are you okay with Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, and Use of Alcohol?
Dad: Is there nudity in it?
Me: *looks at box again* No, not even partial. But it has sexual themes and dru-
Dad: Yeah it’s fine.
….. HOW?! And this isn’t the first time either! You’re okay with your CHILD shooting men in the head, taking drugs, and swearing his ass off in a game BUT HEAVEN FORBID HE SEES SOME TITTIES!!
Well, this happened today:
Jena: “Mom, is Spongebob inappropriate?”
Me: “Why would you think that?”
Jena: “Robert was watching the episode where Spongebob is looking at a sea anemone and suddenly changes it when Gary comes into the room. And Robert’s mom said it was inappropriate.”
Me:"Jena, there’s something you always have to remember about cartoons: They are made by adults! So, with that in mind, some cartoons will have a hint at adult humor without it being noticed by children. That is until they grow up, watch it again and say, ‘Ah, I get it now’. Back in the day, even cartoons like Bugs Bunny were considered inappropriate for kids. He dressed up like a girl and kiss male characters. And in those cartoons, they’d blow each other up with guns or bombs or are seen drinking and smoking. You don’t see that now in cartoons because parents thought it was inappropriate. So, don’t worry about it."
