Hello, Poison Control....

See this little girl? She's cute isn't she? Well once again we've had to call poison control on her again. This child really drives me crazy! This is what happened:

I just finished cleaning off the Kitchen table (really I did, I was throwing the junk in the trash). Kailyn takes the bottle of Clorox and sucks on the tip and sprays it in her mouth. Awesome. So she starts gagging and spitting. Brian grabs her and makes her drink some water and I call poison control. No big deal.

So far we have called poison control on this kid for about 12 - 13 times and she is almost 3.

It Died...

My Garbage Disposal is dead. And I'm pretty sure it is entirely my fault, I fed it to much. So now I don't have a disposal right now and it is really making my life difficult!

I hate old houses....

My Big Toe...

My poor big toe. It's seen better days. It all started Saturday...

I ran 9 miles on Saturday, after the run I noticed that my big toe was a little bruised. No big deal. My fault because I wore the wrong socks. Anyways, on Monday I was walking thru the living room and kicked a pile of blankets out of the way and ended up kicking a big pile of toys. My children think that putting things in a pile and covering it with a blanket it is how to clean the living room. I said a few nicely chosen words and threw the toys in the trash. They're not my toys, I don't care if they go in the trash. And obviously they didn't want them either because they left them on the floor. So whatever healing my big toe was doing was gone. Then on Tuesday morning before I had to take Ash to school, I was standing at the counter talking to Brian and all of a sudden Hayden (who is in her walker) sprints to me from across the kitchen and RIPS OFF MY TOENAIL!!!! It's gone, all of it and it is really gross! It hurts! It is seriously a bloody mess! I ended up going to the doctor because it was "leaking". It was starting to get infected so know I am on some antibiotics and some nice pain pills. My toe has to stay wrapped up for the next couple of weeks and it hurts it walk. While I was at the Doctors, I asked him how long till I will be able to run again. He just starts LAUGHING at me and telling me that I won't be doing any running for a LONG TIME!!!! Awesome. I am supposed to be running the half marathon in a month. So know I don't know what I am going to be doing about the run. I hope that I will be able too, but it doesn't really look like it going to happen right now...

Reese finally lost her front tooth! That stupid tooth has been just hanging there for the past week. I got so sick of watching her tongue it to death, so I pinned her down and pulled it out.
