Taxes, taxes and more taxes

This is for Jennyhaha who is dealing with taxes. Poor girl is over her head and tells about it in her post here: "Taxes Ruined My Quality of Life" I couldn't help but think of this Bugs Bunny Classic.

The Best Part of Being a Parent

This afternoon I made my last trek to Brandon's school to pick him up. Jessica knew that I was leaving to get Brandon and her home health aide was here so she went into her room to play her video game and closed the door. When Brandon and I got home I realized that Karl's patrol vehicle was here and that he had gotten home early. I went into the house and went back to my bedroom to talk to Karl and see how his day went. While we were talking the phone rang but Jessica picked it up before I could answer it. I went into my bathroom. (I know, TMI, but it is relevant to the story). Right after that my cell phone rang and Karl answered it. I recognized the ring and that it was Jessica calling my cell phone. I realized that Jessica had no idea that either Karl or I were home. I giggled as I thought of her surprise when her dad answered my phone (Jess thought he was at work and I was out getting Brandon). I then hear Karl telling Jess, "Yes, I'm shopping with Mommy." "No, Mommy can't come to the phone right now." "I'll tell Mom to get you a diet coke on her way home." He hangs up my cell phone and we both start laughing.... then we hear Jessica's voice in the hallway. "Daddy, is that you?" (the bedroom door is closed so she can't see who is in there)

Karl: "No, it's not me."

Jess: "Yes it is!"

Karl: "No it isn't, I'm shopping with Mommy!"

Jess: "Daaaaad!"

Karl: "Really, I'm not here, I just left my voice behind!"

Jess: "You are too home! Can I come in?"

Karl: "Ok, come on in."

Jess: "Daddy, you tricked me!"

Karl: "Yes I did and it was FUN!"

Jess giggling, "Why did you trick me?"

Karl: "Because you are so sweet and gullible."

Jess: "Where's Mommy?"

Karl: "Mommy's not here."

Me (from the bathroom): "I'm not here, I just left my voice behind."

Jess: "Mom! I know you're in there"

Later Jessica told Karl that she knows how to unlock the lock on her bedroom door. Karl said he didn't believe her so she unlocked it to prove him wrong. So then Karl tells her that he is going to call the police and measure her oxygen tubing to see how far it can go and see which houses she has unlocked and stolen stuff out of. Her response... "Daaaaaaaaad!"

Messing with kids' minds.... the best part about being a parent. hehe!

Musical Monday

Jessica, like most young children, usually loves to talk about herself. She talks about everything under the sun. She talks about what she watches on TV, what her favorite colors are, who her favorite actors and actresses are, what games she's playing, what she just picked up off the floor, what she is going to do for her next birthday, who she wants to draw a picture for next, what games she wants to buy in the next several months, what her favorite foods are, what movies she has seen and what ones she wants to see next, what her favorite animals are, and on and on... CONSTANTLY. So some days....

I Wanna Talk About Me!

I get a kick out of the bad guy in the back seat of the patrol car. hehe...
