My tummy hurts

Posted on March 20, 2010. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: |

The other night Punk was laying on the floor wiggling around and saying “my tummy hurts.”   I advised her to get a snack. 

“But mommy, my tummy hurts.” 

“You’re hungry honey – get a snack.”

“Maybe I have a baby in my tummy.”

The dots illustrate the stunned silence hanging between BigD and I.  In Hannah Montanna speak, “four year old girl say what?”  BigD and I quietly laughed, gave her a snack and put her to bed.  This will not be a topic of discussion again for at least 20 more years.

Air Conditioner

Posted on March 19, 2010. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: |

Last night when Punk got home she had goo in her hair.  I have no idea what it was, but I knew it needed the special “sink washing”.  So I got her all prepped and had her lay on the counter with her head by the sink and went to work soaping, rubbing, rinsing.  I decided I needed the hair conditioner and asked BigD to get it.  ChickenFried asked “why do you need the air conditioner.”  Punk said, “I want to see the air conditioner.”  

After Punk got her hair treatment ChickenFried begged me to do his hair too – “it feels so good.”  So, all the kiddos got their hair washed in the sink last night … and a little “air” conditioner!

Is that a goose I hear?

Posted on March 18, 2010. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: , , |

Signs of spring are around, including tens of thousands of geese north over us every day.  But that’s not the goose sound I’m talking about.  No — I’m talking about the famous Plambeck nose honk……that rash irritating noise that happens when the boys of my house blow their nose.   And unfortunately, there has been a lot of nose blowing around here the last three weeks.   We’ve been through so many boxes of Puffs we could have supplied thousands of teenage bra stuffers.  

ChickenFried is the last victim.  He stayed home from school today and we made the obligatory trip to the dr.  The true child sickness test = he only ate 1/2 his McDonalds cheeseburger. 

Let’s just hope the only geese sounds we hear from now on are the ones from the sky!

Easter Prediction

Posted on March 9, 2010. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: , |

Punk apparently has a secret desire to become a meteorologist.  She has told BigD and I on separate occasions (and out of the clear blue sky) that we are going to have “bad snow on Easter.”  Her exact words.  Frankly, we’re a little worried.  Easter is on the early side, and it’s entirely possible we could have snow.  If it happens, she’s picking the next lottery ticket numbers!

The Kiss

Posted on March 7, 2010. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: , , |

I think you all know about Punk’s little crush on Jimmie Johnson.  If NASCAR is on, she’s asking to see him.  So at the beginning of today’s race BigD obliges and rewinds so she can see him……kissing his wife.   She turns arounds, scrunches her nose and says “he’s kissing his girl!?”  She really wasn’t jelous….just amazed that he has a girl.  And was willing to kiss her front of everyone.
