Sick of me yet?

Sick of me yet?

February 5, 2008

No? Well you know today is? Tuesday. Where I blather on and on all over the internet.

At Parenting I write about being Three:

There are things that I want to remember, like the way my 3-year-old son uses the adjective “favorite” to describe everything from the shirt I pull out of the drawer for him to wear that morning to his “favorite” Daddy to his “favorite” house he lives in. I love it, that zeal for life that only those who are three can have.

I love the way he calls his siblings his friends. Lately he’s been asking as I carry him up to bed, “Why are my friends not going to bed?” And I answer, “Oh, because you are three.” Which really is code for, “Because you have completely worn me out.”

Over at Work It, Mom, I have a recipe for making your own beef stock. Are you tired of hearing about the half cow I bought? I know you can’t possibly be. but on Thursday I’ll be posting the beef stew recipe I made with stock. So, so good.

And over here I wrote a post about making the election coverage accessible to our children.

    This is such a great post (over at parenting). I love when you write about Miles. Maybe because my oldest turned 4, so I recall alot of those 3 year old moments. I heart heart heart your blog & writing.

    It was so funny, when I opened recent issue of parenting & saw a quote from you - only it was a quote about your 7 yr old daughter :) I told my husband “THIS IS MY FAVORITE BLOG EVER!”

    Anyway, great post. Love your writing.

    Chris says: That is funny since I don’t HAVE a 7yr old daughter! I’ll have to look at the magazine at the library tomorrow. Oh, and thank you so much.

  3. Maria says:

    So cute that his siblings are his friends.
    Also, trying to remember so many things my kids are saying too. I love reading through my blog from even a few months ago.

    And the best I can do is write about the frog in the toilet.

    I feel inadequate.

  5. gorillabuns says:

    I’ll be sad when my 4.5 year old quits saying, “You’re my favorite Mother and my best friend!”

    I know the end is near.

  6. HolyMama! says:

  8. Girlymom4 says:

    Not sick of ya~ Just in Awe, you are a Busy Bee~ Bzzzzing all over! :)

  9. Shannon says:

    My four year old twins also call their siblings “friends”. When they get mad they shout out, “You are NOT my best friend!” It is too funny.
    Their newest phrase is…. super-fast.

    Chris, I’m wondering what sort of blogging platform you use - I like the way you are able to put your response to a comment directly after that particular comment…I don’t think I can do that with Blogger.

    Chris says: Wordpress. Not sure about blogger, sorry.

  11. peepnroosmom says:

    Sick of you? Please! I love reading your stuff. It’s my “favorite” blog. Ha Ha Ha!

  12. Keri says:

    me again… I knew you didnt have a 7 year old daughter (since you know I am obsessed w/your blog & check it daily) - thats what made me really laugh. I guess they took one of your quotes from another entry & attributed it to your only girl?

  13. Missy says:

    I get all excited when you have new things to read. It’s my excuse to get another cup of coffee and turn the clothes dryer back on to “fluff” for a few more minutes. And may I just say ohmygosh to the picture of your hubby and little girl the other day? I ovulated as soon as I saw it. Such love.

  14. Law Student Hot Mama says:

    It’s a great idea to wear your underwear backwards so you can see the design. Now, if I wore something other than frumpy old lady underwear, I’d contemplate turning my around, too . . . .
