Random thoughts for Friday

I am in a weird funky mood today.  I don't really get it, but I'm sure it will go away soon.  I think I should exercise, and maybe that will put me in a better mood.  This wild week is catching up to me.

Layla woke up this morning NOT wanting to go to school.  The first thing she said when she woke up was, "Mommy do I have to go to school?  I don't want them to take my picture."  She was less than thrilled about today being picture day.  Her eye is a little more swollen than it was yesterday.  I feel so bad for her.  Layla has great self esteem for a 6 year old, but a little girl commented on her busted eye so she is a bit sensitive. Seeing her feeling sensitive makes me feel all 'momma bearish.'

This post is a bit all over the place and random.

I sometimes get the urge to drink coffee in the middle of the day.  This is new to me.  I usually only want coffee in the morning.  Lately I want it in the afternoon or at night.  I don't even want it for the caffeine pick me up, I just want it for the coffee taste.  Does that make me old?  That reminds me, I have been drinking water right out of the tap.  No ice.  When I was a little girl I thought my grandma was weird when she'd do that.  I thought only old people did that, and now I do it. I like my water cool, not freezing cold. Oh gosh...I'm officially old.

Y'all, Hayden is so silly.  He talks about every single thing that goes on with his body.  So excuse the disgusting-ness of the next few sentences.  Yesterday he said, "Daddy, my boogers are gone.  It's all because of your help daddy.  Thanks for getting that big sharp green booger out of my nose."  Poor guy.  A sharp booger?  Wow.  That is the funniest thing.  I asked if he was telling us stories, but he insists he had a sharp booger.  Sigh.  Oh and every single time he does his big business on the potty we get a very descriptive play by play.  He is such a boy.  I'm 100% positive Layla has never once commented on her "business."  He is so stinkin' funny and descriptive.  I only hope he keeps it up when it comes to other things.  He might be an excellent writer, only I hope it isn't about bodily functions.  Oh wow...I told you this was random.

Since we are talking about disgusting things let me just tell you what happened to me on Wednesday.  It doesn't even come close to what happened to Layla the same day, but it is funny!

See that brown glob of a dot on my forehead.

That is bird poop.  I know it looks like a mole, but it's not a mole.  Birds always pick me.  I can't tell you how many times this has happened to me.  It happened in a parking lot when I was getting out of the car.  All I could do was laugh.  I'm thankful I had baby wipes in the car.  Oh! SO gross.   Someone told me long ago that when a bird does it's business on you it it good luck.  We shall see!  I wasn't feeling so lucky while scrubbing my forehead with a baby wipe.

Have you ever wanted to take someone else's hair and put it on your head?  Random, yes I know.  But I have been debating highlighting my hair for the last few months.  I am ready for a change. Summer hair is always fun.  Anyway, Hayden got his hair cut today at Sport Clips and one of the stylists had adorable hair.  I had a serious case of 'hair envy.'

Hayden's hair was out of control.  It was to the point where we could barely style it anymore.   He did great getting his hair cut yesterday.  About a year ago we had one bad experience getting his hair cut, but since then he has done awesome sitting still.
He looks like a clean cut little man again!  Call me old fashioned, but I love the look of a clean cut little boy hair cut.  I think we is so handsome with his fresh new do!

Yesterday when I was washing and cutting our lettuce for the week I got grossed out.  Yuck!  That brown stuff??  It is dirt in the organic romaine lettuce.  I know it is just dirt, but I think it is nasty.  I wish I could have used soap when I washed the lettuce.  I did scrub it extra hard.  
Would you eat it?  Or throw it away?

Several of y'all have asked me about Daisy Mae.  She seems to be doing great since she is our only dog.  She doesn't seem to miss Harley very much.  She and Harley never saw eye to eye anyway.  I was wondering how she'd act once she was the only pup.  I wondered if she'd mourn the loss of Harley.  The answer seems to be no.  I'm pretty sure she thinks she is the princess of the house.   We aren't planning to get another dog.  Daisy is all we can handle at this time.  Since Bogey was a wild and crazy  untrainable dog (who found another home) we are a bit gun shy when it comes to getting another pet.  I think our family is great just as it is today!

Layla visited our dermatologist yesterday.   I was concerned about how her eyebrow would heal and if it was glued properly.  Thankfully the doctor said everything looked great.  I hope the healing goes smoothly and if our predictions are correct her eyebrow should cover the entire scar (if there is one).

Well, that concludes my randomness for today.

I hope you have a great Friday and a happy weekend!

I love the randomness. :) I'd probably eat the lettuce anyway. We're hippy like that at my house....mostly because we always have a huge garden at the we're used to a little dirt here and there. :)

Great random post! I hope your mood gets seems to be going around. I get mama bear all the time when it comes to other little kids and their not so nice words...grr. Hayden cracks me up...Caleb is a descriptive pooper too. I've been pooped on by a bird and it was not fun...ick, gross, ick!!! That reminds me to put wipes in my car. Hmm...I have to have my water ice cold but the best way to drink it is room temp so you're doing good! Not old! I'm glad to hear that Miss Daisy Mae is adjusting. She's so cute!

I'm feeling the same way about coffee & I only started drinking it 3 mos. ago! Now, the water is another story. I drink a TON of it BUT it must have ice. MUST MUST MUST! In fact anything I drink that's cold, with the exception of milk, must have ice.

I am just starting to like coffee, and it makes me feel really old! For the longest time I just couldn't stand the taste of it, but now it is kind of growing on me. I love Hayden's haircut...he looks so handsome! I love a clean cut looking boy too:) I hope Layla had an okay day at school, and I hope you get out of your funk soon! Have a great weekend!

Angie, you crack me up! Bird poo...ROFL! I would've totally thrown the lettuce away. I am so weird with random things like that, but I can't help it. Don't get me started on chicken :/ Hayden looks totally handsome, like always. I am digging Jake's curls right now. He needs a little clean up around the ears/neck... but I am hesitant on cutting the top too short. Since his hair is wavy, I can't spike it up :( Oh boy, now I am being random. Love your blog!!

I felt so off yesterday too! Maybe we're adjusting to the amazing weather we've been getting? LOL
