What the Dickens ~ Book review

What the Dickens by Gregory Maguire.
I LOVE Gregory Maguire. Well, I love his books. LOL. I have loved his books since I read Wicked. He has a wonderful imagination. This book was not at all what I expected. It's about the Tooth Fairy, but also some other things too, like wishes.
If you are wondering what the two have in common you should read this book to find out.
And then read Wicked and any other book by him that you can find.

The first Interview of my Interview Series, my son Cody

Today when Cody came home from school I told him that I had a project I needed him to do. I handed him a sheet of paper and asked him to answer all the questions. I told him he had to read them one at a time and answer them without reading all the way through, and NO I wouldn't read the to him and yes he had to write down the answers. He rolled his eyes a few times and then got to work. The result is my first ever blog interview and a pretty sneaky mommy prank.

Have I mentioned I hate 10?

Not just any Ten.
The AGE ten.
I have decided that Ten is not a very good age in boy years. What happened to my sweet little Cody? Remember him? He was so sweet and cute and funny, he liked to play with his brother.
That Cody is looooong gone and I miss him.
In his place is the this new Cody, he is moody and sassy and will NOT be nice to his brother at all. And he eats ALL THE TIME!!! This morning for breakfast he had a glass of chocolate milk, 2 scrambled eggs, 3 pieces of bacon, 6 large strawberries, a piece of toast and 3 chocolate chip cookies!!!!!!
Yesterday he got all grumpy because Kip and I decided to go to Costco. Cody grumped all the way there (he never wants to leave the house anymore) and when Kip said he was starting to be a pain Cody said "yeah so are YOU".
At conferences the other day his teacher told me (like they always do) what a sweet, quiet, sensitive boy he is. I wish he was still like that at home. I suppose I should be happy that he is at least still acting human while with other people.

The other day we set up a new email address for him. I signed into it and added all the family email addresses to his contact list. While I was there I sent an email to myself so we could test it out. It said
"Hi mom.
I love you.
While he was at school the next day I replied to the email. I wrote
"Even though I know I wrote this email it still made me feel good to think it came from you.

How sad that the only way my son tells me he loves me know is if I email it to myself. LOL.

Ok, I guess that isn't completely true. The other night when I was leaving for work I told them I loved them (like I always do before I leave) and I heard him say "love you too".
Maybe I should've taped that huh?

I heard a rumor that it's only going to get worse as they get older.

Maybe it is time to get that puppy....

Oops I dried the cat!!!!

I didn't mean to, I was doing the laundry and talking to my mom on the phone. I got distracted. I had opened the dryer but the clothes were too wrinkly, I must had turned around for a minute, when I started the dryer I heard this horrible clunking noise. I was so mad, that dryer is only a few months old. I shut the dryer off right away and opened the door (so I could see what was going on) and the cat jumped out!!!!!

Poor Tiger.

BTW in case you were wondering, cats are LOUD in the dryer....
