Friday, the best one of the year

Friday, April 6, 2012

Dear Jesus: Today you changed the world. You were bruised and beaten, ridiculed and despised when the only words from our lips were "Crucify." We did nothing, but You, in your unfailing love and never-ending mercies, did everything. You died today that we might live.

Dear Grahm: Nothing says "We're a fun married couple" like going to bed at 930. Oh man, it was all kinds of glorious. My buns are still rejoicing. Thanks babe for having such a great idea this week. Move over, Jamba Juice. I'm wondering what our outfits will look like? Coconut bra for you, skirt of banana peels for me?
Dear "book" I edited this week: What the what? It's called a plot. Get one. Here's a tip. Books shouldn't make you want to pluck your eyes out and hurl them across the room. Despite your sheer awfulness, you actually gave me an idea for my own book. So I guess I don't regret reading your nothing-happens-in-360-page story. I do, however, regret pulling an all nighter to finish you (hence our 930 bed time last night). I don't give up my precious REM for just anything, especially not a tear-off-my-toe-so-I-can-gouge-my-eye-with-it book. You know it's going to be a bad day when you chug a 5-hour energy at 830 in the morning; so thanks for making my yesterday all kinds of painful.

Dear Anna and Griffin: I love being your nanny, but man do I need to start pumping some iron. Lifting your car seat into your mamma's Escalade is like heaving half of my body weight on the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. I wish I was taller, or stronger. Ideally both. Mommy and me classes were so fun, even if we did ruin the " baby's meditation time" because you were super hungry and screaming your little beanies off. You both have brought me so much joy already... even when we have exploding-out-of-your-diaper stink sessions in the morning. Thanks for that. Next week your mommy officially goes back to work, so we're gonna be on our own. Go easy on me, little ones.

Yay for nanny jobs! That baby is so friggin' adorable.

Also, Grahm uses a TON of smiley faces when he texts.

Happy Good Friday love!

The baby is precious! Too funny about pumping iron, I probably need to do the same!

I'm so jealous that you get to watch two cute babies! I watched triplets for about 5 years (all through college), and it is so rewarding!
Happy Easter!

Such a cute baby! You will have Popeye muscles by the time you finish looking after those kids! Have you had to get any qualifications for your nannying, or do you just know the people? I'd adore to do that! Such a funny convo between you and 'The Hubs', I love how relaxed and full of love your relationship is and poor you with the book! XxxX

I think tears came out when I laughed at your message to the aspiring author! I know the feeling sometimes when I am grading's never good when you're reading literature that makes you feel like your life is being sucked away! Thanks for coming over via AoNW. New blog friends are I am going to follow along.

Happy Easter

i used to think that editing books sounded like fun until you mentioned that sometimes you have to read some really bad ones. i think i'll stick to just reading them. 9:30 sounds like my ideal bedtime. my husband dug his heels in and said we have to wait until 10:00.

happy easter!

Mrs. Robinson said... guys are precious. :)

I have you an award!

Emily said...

Amen to the "Dear Jesus" part!

9:30 is totally okay for bedtime :)

happy easter!
