Let me vent a little, would ya?

I would like to thank the individual with the oh-so-loud vehicle- car, motorcycle, atv, whatever- that woke up little son from his nap today so that I didn't have to. Because, really, I hate it when his naps last longer than 1/2 hour. And he really was sleeping way too long. Shameful of me to allow him to go longer than 29 minutes. What kind of mother am I?

And so he woke up all disoriented and nothing can satisfy him now. And he had an accident in his Batman underoos because he wouldn't let me help him. And then he didn't want to put on the new outfit I picked out for him. And so finally after 4 ensembles we are dressed and the tears are drying. And we are watching Wow Wow Wubbzy. And why is it that many of the shows on Noggin have ridiculous names? Pinky Dinky Doo, Yo Gabba Gabba, Oobi. And in Miss Spider it drives me nuts that they always say "somebuggy" or "everybuggy", etc. At least they have a connected learning approach. Whatever that is. Phew! Feels good to get that off my chest.

But, now we are happy at this house and ready to have a great evening. And we can't wait for the husband to return from California where he has been all day. And I learned how to do this--> ♥ <-- yesterday. (the heart) Not to mention that when I just checked my email, I got a free video from BYU Alumni Association: Cougar Diary 2007 BYU Football Highlight DVD: Cougars Reloaded. Wow. Gotta ♥ that!

And tonight will be full of sweet dreams. I can tell. Because lots of you have already chimed in to make special requests. But, in case you haven't, be sure to check the ♥Giveaway♥ post from earlier today so that I can see you in my dreams!

There is nothing worse than a child woken from a nap! My heart goes out to you my bloggy friend! One mother to another!

Oh, the cranky, crabby, fussy child who was rudely awoken from his nap...I sure know that one !

As for all the kids shows, BooBah and Obbi are well... They are downright bizzare !

Miss Spider and her family are actually friends with bugs...what the ? I thought bugs were food !

Put a sign out on your street that says, "Child Napping Zone-Shut Up!"

BUmmer! I hate it when my kids don't get the nap they (and I) need. I totally feel your pain, Steph!

As far as kids shows go...there is only one true show...Sesame Street!

You needed to vent. You've had an awful afternoon by the sound of it. Whew, I don't miss the Disney channel and Nick Jr days. Those shows sent me into a coma repeatedly, so I'm so sorry :-)

I also came over to let you know I will be on blog-cation and will not be able to visit and comment for awhile. I will miss your posts but I will be back. Have a great Thanksgiving holiday!

You have one of those in your neighborhood too?? I thought we were the only lucky ones.

We should form a clique and make everyone else feel bad they don't have a 500 horsepower alarm clock down the street.
