I am just a kid who's four. Each Day I grow some more. I like exploring. I am Caillou.

Unfortunately my weekend kind of sucked ass. Porgie woke up on Saturday morning puking. I spent the rest of the weekend tending to my sick children. Lovely.

I am a nail biter. I am always chewing on my fingernails. Since getting braces, I haven't been able to bite my nails. AND IT IS DRIVING ME STARK RAVING MAD.

It has been super chilly here in NJ lately. However, Izzy has decided that it is now shorts weather. Since those 90 degree days we had a few weeks ago, my baby boy refuses to wear pants. He only wants to wear shorts and t-shirts despite the cold breeze blowing outside. And there is no reasoning with a two year old.

My grandmother recently lost vision in her left eye, which was very alarming. She was diagnosed with a cataract. Getting older sucks, and I hate that my granny has to go through this.

This weekend we headed over to BuyBuy Baby to get some new plates for the kids. Our current kid plates are plastic, so we wanted to replace them with something BPA Free. I really wanted a stainless steel plate with different compartments. While searching for the replacement plates, my daughter decided to get an attitude with me. When I asked for an apology, she had a complete meltdown. Tears, snot, screaming - the whole nine yards. I had to carry her flailing body out to the car. Needless to say, we didn't find the plates.

Porgie and Izzy recently discovered Caillou. Now I have to watch that little bald bastard all damn day.

Just for fun, another spacer popped out on Saturday morning. Grrrrrreat.

Enough about me. How was your weekend?

Don't know who Caillou is, and afraid to ask.

Sorry about the rough weekend. Hope everyone feels better soon.

Oooooh! I can't STAND Caillou. I want to smack his mother.

anyway, sorry to hear about Porgie's sickness, but I think Izzy is too funny! There is a guy here at work who is part Wookiee. In April, he starts to wear shorts. every day. You could crotchet a sweater from his leg hair. gross.

Maybe you'll be able to stop the nail biting now?? I just bought some brush-on stuff for Maggie's nails. I swear, that kid bites her nails down to the quick. What does a 6 1/2 year old need to stress about THAT much???

We don't have cable, but it seems Caillou is the bomb from what I hear. Why do you hate it? Everyone I know loves it. Oh well. I don't have to watch any of them. Just the same Disney movies again. and again. and again. Oh fuck me.

"Little bald bastard" has to be the best quote I've heard all day! Calliou hasn't made into our house yet and from the sounds of it, I should be thankful! Ha.

Caillou kind of creeps me out. Plus, he's really annoying. I used to cringe whenever Danielle flipped on a channel he was on.
