December - ACK!

Busy Busy Busy - My blogs will be very spotty for the next few weeks!

December is always a bit crazy in the Kinson household - and not just because of Christmas...
Birthdays abound - mine is Dec 2, my bil is Dec 5, son is Dec 13, BFF Tracey Dec 17, mil is Dec 19, neice is Dec 27 - and on the brackets, my nephew is Nov 25 and BFF Leslie Jan 9.
Deep breath and ...TO THE MALL!!!

On top of this, I finished my revisions on Law of Averages -- it was supposed to be only one minor revision but you know I had to go and tinker with the whole damn manuscript!

What's keeping YOU awake at night this December??

Happy Hanakkah to those of you who celebrate!

Overheard my 3 year old singing a carol yesterday:
Deck the halls with lots of holly, fa la la la la la la la
It's the season for the dollys, ....

I leave you with more funny kid stuff:

A number of primary schools were doing a project on "The Sea." Children were asked to draw pictures or write about their experiences. Teachers got together to compare the results and put together some of the 'better' ones. Here are some of the descriptions of "ocean life."
1. This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly age 6)
2. Some fish are dangerous. Jellyfish can sting. Electric eels can> give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug themselves in to chargers. (Christopher age 7)
3. Oysters' balls are called pearls!(James age 6)
4. If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island . If you don't have sea> all around you, you are incontinent. (Wayne age 7)
5. I think sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily Richardson. She's not my friend no more. (Kylie age 6)
6. A dolphin breathes through an asshole on the top of its head. (Billy age 8)
7. My uncle goes out in his boat with pot, and comes back with crabs. (Millie age 7)
8. When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes, when the wind didn't blow, the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would be better off eatingbeans. (William age 7)
9. I like mermaids. They are beautiful and I like their shiny tails. Howdo mermaids get pregnant?(Helen age 7)
10. When you go swimming in the sea, it is very cold, and it makes my willy small. (Kevin age 6)

Shelley Munro said...

Happy birthday! My birthday is this month as well. Good luck at the mall. Shopping isn't my favorite thing at the best of times.

LOL - kids are so funny.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Happy (slightly late) birthday -- and to everyone else in the household, too!

and yes, Happy Hanukkah. I swear, are you guys all aware of it because of little old me?

Leave me with my delusions, will ya? *wink*

And I've got myself a seven-year-old. That kid stuff sounds ... like my household when he has friends over. LOVE it!!!

Ann said...

Happy Belated Birthday to you.
Happy Belated Birthday to you.
Etc, etc.
And good luck with the shopping. :)

Wylie Kinson said...

TL - Yes, you do have a birthday coming, don't you!! In case I forget, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. That's a total cop out, I know, but with so much going on, I don't want to forget!!

Wylie Kinson said...

Oh Amy, if you're wearing YOUR light up antlers, I can't very well wear MY light up antlers. That would be a fashion faux pas on the grandest magnitude. ;)

Wylie Kinson said...

Shelley - Happy Birthday to you to! Seems we Sag's are a creative bunch ;)

Wylie Kinson said...

SHG - it's ALL YOU BABY!! ;)

Ann - thanks for popping by. I've got to make a return visit and see what's going on with your story. As soon as I have a moment to catch my breath!

Thse are wild...one time when my daughter was about 2 1/2 we were at airport in Calgary and she says pointing at a plne taking off "That looks like Pauls' penis"

I was like....what when did you see THAT? quietly trying not to laugh...

Rene said...

Oh, I love those kid things. Very funny.

Not much is worrying me this December. November was a rougher month with the remodel and my girls' birthdays. I've got much of my shopping done (I don't have much to do) and I don't have any money anyway. Remodels are good at making you broke :)

ACK ACK ACK! I'm smacking myself in the head -- no, in the ASS! Happy Belated Birthday, dear Wylie! I must have read your post wrong -- for some reason I had it in my head as the wrong day, and now I come back here and see it was December 2!

I hope you had a wonderful day! And thank you for your birthday wishes -- mine's coming up in about a week now -- hard to believe how fast this year has gone!

Great big belated birthday hugs!

LOL that was too cute about the Sea project.

Wylie Kinson said...

Rene - hear you on the remodel costs. Oh yes... spent years doing those. But doesn't it FEEL GREAT to have it done?

TL - no worries mate. And hope your day is super special :)

Terra - yeah, they were cute. I probably could have added another 10 from my own kids, but y'all get enough of my kidlets around here.
