I’ve been lousy lately.  Lousy at school work, lousy at work (apparently, since I got fired…), lousy at standing up for myself, and lousy at keeping up with this blog.  Why does the fact that I’ve been lousy at keeping up with this blog bother me almost as much as keeping fired from my job?  Just kidding, but it really is almost that bad.  No good.

I never use the word lousy, even though I’ve already used it like… 15 times in this short post.  Well… I never useD it until little man said “Ms. Libby, I don’t understand why I’ve been so lousy lately.”  This surprised me because a) why is a five year old using the word lousy and b) a five year old can’t even be considered or called lousy…he’s five years old for goodness sake!! Anyways… he continues on to say “I’ve just been lousy with my coloring.  It must be because at school I have to color baby stuff so I don’t try.  I’m not lousy with the coloring I do at home in my Ben 10 book!”

baby pictures at school vs. ben 10 coloring book….

ben 10 wins every time.

Forgive me for my lapse in posting.. whoever reads this…

Forgive me?

How about now?

My goodness! She is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Booted & A Bonus

New boots? Kicked out? Booted???? What in the world is that? 

So you see, when you’re from an itty bitty town like me with little knowledge of how and where to park in the city, one little mistake and you’re out $75.00 and even better, you wouldn’t have even seen it coming because you didn’t think you were doing anything wrong and on top of that, you’re a  poor college student.  Who are we talking about here? Oh right, me.  Yup, I totally got booted tonight.  It totally cost me $75.00 and I totally forgot to take a picture because I was too busy being upset because this week has just…totally….sucked. 

Yes, I do realize that things could be way worse, and yes, I do go on tangents about people who say “FML” over small things and complain obsessively about minor things causing their life to suck so bad, but really – this week has been very out of the ordinary for me – partially because of “boy” which I’ll be explaining in the next post, and partially because I’ve had crap luck.  Yup, crap luck.  It’s one of those days, so saying things like… crap luck… are acceptable.   Ever had a day or week stink so badly that when you get home at the end of each day you just want to crawl in bed?  Well since I have no kids or after work/school obligations (besides homework..which is definitely being neglected tonight) I am doing just that, I got home at 7:43, put my pajamas on at 7:45 and got into my bed at 7:47.  And if you’re wondering, I played on facebook for about 50 minutes and it is now 8:40 and my eyelids are closing.  See, I told you – this just has not been my day, it’s wore me out!

For your viewing pleasure…..

No, unfortunately this isn’t my car.  But here is a boot on a car… after finding this picture and reading the article it was associated with ( I wished.. and still wish… I were as smart as he was.  He beat the boot.  Amazing.

L: Ms. Libby where is my stingy stuff?

Me: I put it in the bag with the stuff that cameron got me.

L: Oh..okay

(5 minutes later)

L: Hey C, Ms. Libby put my stingy stuff in your bag!

C: Wow, that’s insane!!!

L: Yeah, that’s soooo insane!

They’ve been trying out new words lately, pretty cute if you ask me. 

Me: (while driving with L in the backseat) She needs to learn how to drive!

L: Yeah, you need to tell her Ms. Libby.  You need to tell her “Hey lady, there’s other people on the road but you”

uhhhh she doesn’t pick up on stuff grown-ups say, does she?

L: This stuffs so sweet it sweeted me up!!!!

We're the bestest of friends 🙂

Winter Weather, Summer Thoughts, Childs Mouth


Beach Trip 2010

When you’re stuck in the house for, what feels like, days on end, you can’t help but long for the summer.  And trust me, when it’s summer down here in Georgia, you actually want it to be fall or winter – so that just goes to show what kinda stuff we’re dealing with!  It’s actually not quite as bad as I’m making it out to be, but school has been canceled for yet another day today and will most likely be closed tomorrow as well.   What’s so funny is that my older sister, who still lives in New Hampshire, was telling us yesterday that they had received 22″ of snow and that it was still snowing.  I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like if we got that much snow here.  It would literally be insane. Insane!

On a totally different note…. I get to see my favorite little monkeys today and I cannot wait!  Who are they, you ask?  For your viewing pleasure…


Silly Faces

Too stinkin cute 🙂

They’re the best kids ever.  Or in my opinion anyway.

From a Childs Mouth:

(Note: These will probably never end because kids say the craziest stuff!)

Keep in mind, she’s 3 years old.  She has just thrown a fit and is now winding down.

Me:  Lu, throwing things and screaming is not a good way to make this better.  Can we please talk about why you got so mad?

Lu: I dint get so mad.

Me: Well actually you did.  You were throwing things and you even picked up your stroller like you were going to throw it at me.  Those are not good decisions.  Why did you do that?

Lu: (With a sad face) It’s cause my brain isn’t working.

Me: You’re brain isn’t working? What do you mean?

Lu: Well cause your brain is ‘posed to move from side to side and mine is stayin’ still.  It’s not working.

Ohhhh. So next time I do something that I’m not supposed to do, I’ll just say that my brain quit working.  Good one Lu!

Pretty Babies… Childs Mouth

I am so blessed to have so many precious pretty babies in my life.  Let me be as so kind as to share with you.

Sweet Abe

Pretty Addi E.

Blue-eyed Rylee B.

Lu when she was itty bitty

They are so adorable and lovable.  As much as I should not be saying it and should be worrying about my career and what-not, I really cannot wait to have a sweet baby of my own.  Is it bad that I already have all my kids names picked out?  It’s a girl thing, right?

Me: Bud, what tHing are you trying to get?

C: This ting, this damn teleporter ting.

Me: Ummm, excuse me?  What did you just say?

C: Oh…noting… I didn’t say anyting.

Hmmm… that’s what I thought.

Normally I wouldn’t do this, this as in post two posts in the same day and both within about thirty minutes of each other.  Don’t get use to it, normally I’ve actually got work to do at work ; )

Me and Lu

This was far to cute to not document.

I’m sitting in Little Lu’s (3 year old)  room with her trying to help her clean it up when her mom comes in to tell us bye.

Lu: Bye Mom

Lu’s mom: Bye

Lu: Where are you going Mom?

Lu’s mom: I’m going to recenter (they had a crazy day the day before)

Lu: ohhhh

As soon as Lu’s mom leaves the room she looks at me and says, “Do you ever go to that store Ms. Libby?”

ahhh, if only you could really go to a store and come out re-centered.

Loves from a bellybutton

Where to begin?  What to name my blog? What will I write about? Will I get followers? Will I grow from this? Is this a good idea? Ahh, what the heck, why not!

In true Libby fashion, I thought about creating a second blog for quite some time as my first one lived a short life and died rather quickly.  After much debate I figured that it couldn’t hurt me…or I sure hope not anyway!  So, what will I write about?  Well that’s easy, I’ll write about my average life.  I’m a college student, an avid babysitter/nanny (always looking for more families to babysit for hint hint for you Atlantans), a rather newly single gal, a person with a strong desire to do great things,  a proud owner of a new Nikon D5000, a proud owner of a new Nikon D5000 who had no idea how to use said item, and ultimately, a person looking to share stories, opinions, ideas and to hear your stories, opinions and ideas.

For this post, I’ll keep it simple.  I’m still brewing ideas for what my first “big” post will be about.  I’m thinking something light and funny, but who knows, I do feel quite passionately about moody people lately and what better place to vent than here!

I’ll leave you with you this:

“I’m so full of loves and kisses” – 3 year old

“Really? How great! I’m so full of loves and kisses too, where do you keep all of these loves and kisses? Your belly!?” – Me

(hysterical laughing)”No Ms. Libby!! I don’t keep them in my belly, but watch out cause them come flying out my belly button!”- 3 year old

I’ll be careful not to tickle you too much next time sweet girl, God forbid I get showered with loves and kisses from a bellybutton 🙂

Have you got a cute story that comes straight from the mouth of a sweet toddler? Maybe your kid, or a kid you babysit for?  I’ve got lots!  For now I’ll just go munch on some snoot snacks, watch some snookie and ponder on my next post!

Hey, what in the world is a snoot snack? Snookie? From Jersey Shore? Nope! I’ll fill you in soon.
