Thats right. You heard me! There will be no ranting what-so-ever in this post! Are you sad?
Deal with it!
So yesterday Jitteryjoe came home from work sick at 11:30. He went to bed and stayed there untill it was time for parent teached interveiws, he stayed up untill the kids went to bed (I went to coffee) and then went to bed. He woke up this morning long enough to stumble to the phone and call in sick to work, puked and went back to bed.
He woke up again at one pm, and was fine. So all was well in the BPR household again. Untill we decided to do something really really really stupid. We took the boys Christmas shopping for each other. Smart move eh? Realistically, we knew it would be ...hard... but we never expected this. In past years we always shopped for them and said "Hey you with the face, this is what you are getting your brother for Christmas, OK?" And that was that.
I took Blue Boy to MacDonalds for coke while Jitteryjoe took Rainbow Man thru the stores. It must have gone well becuase they came back with the required number of gifts and no one died doing it.
Then it was our turn. I figured it would be pretty simple, But Blue Boy figured that he could pick out the toys he wanted and give them to his brothers so he could play with them.... I like his style, but I had to put my foot down.
Blue Boy got Stuperman this and Rainbow man this. We left Stuperman at home with my Mother In Law, and Blue Boy helped pick out some sort of gatlin' gun nerfy shooter thingy for Rainbow Man from him.
So me and Blue Boy were walking down an isle, and there was this big grey bucket thingy, I looked down to make sure Blue Boy was watching and saw it, so he wouldnt crash into it. He was looking straight ahead. Then. He crashed into it. I stopped and hugged him and said "Are you OK?" and he looks up at me, hand to his temple. "Whoo, I didn't see That Coming."
It was way funny.
So we are sooooo close to being done now. We have to pick up the Parental Unit gifts and one for my Brother Pick up the DS lite when it gets to the store, oh , and a Birthday gift for Baby Tubby. Hope you all had a wonderful Thursday/Thanksgiving too!
I'm off to eat candy popcorn and watch the movie we rented for the kidlets.
