I have been upset about my tattoo since a few days after I got it, because most of the color drained out of it. People kept telling me I was crazy.

It's like a month already, and I went to the tattoo artist and showed it to her. She said it looks like there was some abrasion the first few days that rubbed off the top layers while it was healing...and that I may not have even been aware of it because it could just be a shirt sleeve.

So...I'm going next Thursday to have it redone. I can't wait. And you can bet nothing's gonna rub against it! I know I'll be psychotic about it, but I want it to look like it did when I first got it, and I know it will again. I just know better this time. Plus it's short sleeve weather for me now, no more sleeves covering the tattoo.

Laszlo bought Lily a Littlest Pet Shop book today at his school's book fair.

I just heard this from the kitchen table:

Lily, this is a quiet book. It's volume three.

I always call Ella a "vonce" - and I realized I never really looked up the definition. I cannot find it anywhere! I've heard the word before, to mean a naughty, smartass child. I looked up "vance" and "vonce" and nothing.

Please tell me one of you smarties has a clue as to what I'm talking about?!

Robert's looking at the Ann Taylor company now...

Is the company still relevant? Would/do you wear anything by them?

Today my Lily Bean is five years old. I can't believe it.

And in the last week, she has corrected one of my favorite things she used to do incorrectly, as mentioned in an earlier post. But she's still over-correcting herself and calling fingers "thingers" - so her babyness is still intact.

Ella is way more of a grown up at two than Lily is at five. Lily's my snuggly, always wanting Mommy, super soft and juicy girl. I often say Lily is all that's pure and good in this world, and it's pretty much true.

I'm taking Ella, Laszlo and my mom to Lily's class in a little while to serve cupcakes. I went to the supermarket intending to purchase cake mix and to come home and make cupcakes, but right at the entrance were boxes upon boxes of yummy looking cupcakes decorated for St. Patrick's Day. Easy way out. Whatevs.

Today is Lily's birthday. She's 5.

For obvious reasons, birthdays were on Laszlo's mind this morning. So he was thinking and he said, "I think I know how the computer knows how old I am." (recently he tried setting up an AIM account and he put in his accurate birth year, so they declined him...I had to fib for him, which upset him, but not as much as not getting the AIM account - but I digress...)

"I think that if you subtract the year you were born from the current year, you can figure out how old someone is."

I said, "That's right! Where did you learn that?"

"I just figured it out."

Then I could literally SEE his brain working. Then he stumbled on his words for a minute and then said, "But if you didn't already have your birthday this year, you need to subtract one from that number."

Seriously? I don't think I was cognizant enough of things to figure that out until I was years older than he is right now. His mind just amazes me.

On a funny, less brilliant note, I went into Laszlo's lunch bag to pack today's snack and drink and there was a note:

Dear mom
Pleese send
more food
for lunch
Because I am
still hungry

Love, Laszlo Goch

Lily says a bunch of words incorrectly. And because I can't stand when my kids grow or change, I embrace all of the mistakes. She calls breakfast "brefeks". Until last week, she counted, "one, two, free, four," etc. So we were in the car before on the way to karate. Lily said, "I love my brother." I said, "What did you say??" She said, "I don't say brovver anymore because the kids in my class taught me how to say the "th" sound."


I said, "Which kids taught you that? Was it all the kids or just a few?"

She said, "It was Samantha, and Ryan, and - oh, there were only nine kids in my class today! Can you believe it?"

I said, "Really? How come?"

She said, "All the other kids had fever. I mean feether. Oh my god, I can't believe I know how to say that the right way now too."

As long as she still says brefeks, I should be ok. ;-)

So, my tattoo is four days old now. It's significantly faded. I think I screwed it up. I think I rubbed off some of the color after the shower. I did whatever I was told to do, but I just feel like this can't be normal tattoo healing, for my flesh color to be so prominent throughout the once-opaque tattoo.

Advice? Experience?

Eileen says I'm being crazy.

I just left a message for the tattoo artist, hopefully she'll call me back tonight.

Look at these 2 pictures:

Just after I got home...

...and about a half hour ago

It's still a bit raw and the white looks faded because it's a little bloody, but WOOO HOOOOOOO. I love it!

I think it's highly amusing that at the ripe age of ten months, Tallulah discovered her tail and hasn't stopped chasing it and chewing on it all day.

I guess she ran out of pencils/necklaces/crayons/wood moulding/toys/gum/magnets/etc. to chew on to keep herself busy.

How long does puppyhood last again?

Laszlo is particularly upset with Windows Vista. We don't have it on any of our machines, but he keeps hearing us say we don't want it and he hears Eileen say how she hates it, so he knows it's awful.

Today Laszlo got home from school and told me all about slavery. They read a book called, "Henry's Freedom Box" and he was very animated about how bad slavery was.

So tonight, we're all hanging out in the den. Laszlo had just finished talking about slavery to our houseguest Eileen. Then he said it.

"Which is worse, slavery or Windows Vista?"

Cue me and Eileen almost peeing our pants laughing.

This morning while Laszlo was eating his breakfast, I was singing the "hot" song that he wrote for when his food is too hot. It's really funny, and the lyrics are, "Haaaaaaaaah-ah-hot, haaaaaaa-ah-hot, All you have to do, is blow your food...for the rest of your liffffffffe."

I was laughing at how funny the song was, so I told him he was priceless.

Laszlo: Mommy, what does priceless mean?
Me: It means something that's so great you can't put a price on it.
Laszlo: So, it's like "free" then, right?
Me: No, it's not like free because something free doesn't always have value, but something priceless has so much value that you can't put a price on it because there's no price big enough that would fit.
Laszlo: So then how do you buy it?
Me: It's not usually something you'd buy. It's like people or actions.
Laszlo: What's an "action"?
Me: Something you do is an action. Like right now you're eating breakfast, and that's your action.
Laszlo: No Mommy, my STATUS is that I'm eating breakfast.

I stand corrected.

Robert developed a rash a few days ago. My mom was over yesterday and she said it looked like when she had shingles a few months back.

So we called the doctor today because the rash was worse and hurting him.

Yep, shingles. Ah, the joy.

So, my one and only complaint about the Botox my forehead has recently acquired is that when applying mascara, it's difficult to get the top lashes because I can't life my brows to get the lashes away from the lids.

Other than that, I'm beyond thrilled!

1 week, 3 pound chocolate heart. Gone.

Man, imagine how skinny I'd be if I didn't eat like a total pig.

Laszlo: We got a new program called Type to Learn at school, it helps me learn to type using the home keys.
Me: That's cool! I learned to type on a typewriter.
Laszlo: So you're really old. Congratulations. Typewriters are really old.

Ella has some funny words...

She calls Laszlo, "Da-dush"
She still says, "Ahhh" before things she wants. Like, "Ahhhhh-mook" etc.
The other day she woke up and said, "Ahhhh-eekoo, Ahhhhh-eekoo." So I said, "What does that mean Ella?" She said it again a few times and then she just looked at me and said, "Ahhhh-FOOD!" Like, DUH mom!

Also, she's working on her animal sounds...she says, "Pa pa" for sheep sounds and "Hayyyyyyyy" for what a horse says.
