Did you know...

*that today is Square Root Day? That's right...3/3/09. The next Square Root Day? 4/4/16.

*that only big dorks know it is Square Root Day?

*that I drove by 5 (count them...5!) police officers on patrol today and got ZERO speeding tickets?!

*that I was on "auto-pilot" today absorbed in my thoughts and drove home? Before picking up the kids?! Mother of the Year indeed.

*that right after daycare, my daughter immediately changed into an evening gown, high heels, jewelry, and concealer that can only be described as pumpkin-like?


*that I now have concealer all over my couch and carpet?

*that I have 8 school days until Spring Break?

*that I gave chocolate up for Lent but only lasted about 4 days?

*that I need to decide on something different to give up for Lent (really...how am I supposed to give up chocolate during state testing week AND Cadbury egg season?! I had no chance.)

*that it takes all kinds of people to make this world go 'round?


*that this is a freaking hilarious commercial?

video

*that it is 8:50 and combined with the fact that I enjoyed a frosty mug full of a delicious wine-like beverage, it is now bedtime?


Pin It!

No need to try win my MOTY title. Leaving them at the sitters, not so bad! Loving the concealer!

Sarah said...

She is so cute! My daughter had a little dress up time of her own today! (Which I also just blogged about!)

Little girls are so much fun!

YES! Somehow I knew it was square root day, but not because I am brilliant like you. No sirrreee!

KatieSaysSo said...

that is so cute! what an adorable little pumpkin. i used to do that with my moms make up all the time when i was little and it would make my dad so mad. haha.

lori said...

hee hee, too funny!

did you know that 3/14 is pi day?
i usually make pie with the kids that day at school!

pam said...

She is absolutely glowing:)

Finding Normal said...

OMG on Claire. I think you should start now making the montage you will show at her rehearsal dinner. It will be hours long and very entertaining. Do YOU wear that color???
Had no clue about square root day. Since I'm off my daily prompt I have no clue what day it is. Not that my kids would've "gotten it" if I had attempted to explain it today. Not unless it involves weaponry or crawling or flicking things.
Good for you for missing the speed traps. That road to the blinking light is ridiculous.
I didn't give anything up for Lent. I'm writing down all of my food each day. Every bite. And can I say it's *#^@ing frightening. No wonder. That's all I can say. You know how I feel about the eggs. I have given up the choc before, but not this year. I'm not THAT delusional.
You and your mug! I'm thinking about a glass.

C and C Mommy said...

That is funny--the concealer, oh my!!

And they said on our local news...."today is Square Root day" My 1st grader asked what that was and I told him to call his MeMe--she is a HS math teacher. Imagine explaining square roots to a 6 year old??

Our testing is over until April-YAY!! And Spring Break is 3 school days away!!

nikkicrumpet said...

The commercial was funny...but that concealer face is PRICELESS! I'm gonna be laughing about that one all day. She is gotta be my favorite little nugget of all time!

blessedmomto7 said...

Stinkin LOVE that concealer-HIlarious!

Smoochiefrog said...

Oh bless her little orange faced heart.

I hadn't seen that commercial before. Funny!

I didn't know today was Pi day. Cool!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Mmm. love the concealer... it's SO her color.

if she were an oompa loompa :)

Delberta said...

Love the little pumpkin head! She looks flawless. MOTY award went to someone else yesterday lol. Good job on not getting a speeding ticket!

Deanna said...

You are too cool for knowing that it was square root day!! My hubby called me a nerd!

tsk tsk...never ever ever give up chocolate...it's good for your heart and hormones and mental well being. :)

Coffee with Cathy said...

Thanks so much for sharing this peek into your life. I think it's one of the things blogging does best -- shows us that we're all much more alike than different. Hope the concealer cleanup went well!

michelle said...

popped over from nikkicrumpet... So glad I did!
1st, can't believe I missed square root day! I am a math teacher, and we had a snow day on Monday!
2nd, my girls (5 adn 8) never last more than 15 minutes in regular clothes after school before they are in something odd.
3rd, wait till she gets her first make-up kit. The tinkerbell kind with GLITTER! and BLUE EYESHADOW! It's coming.. I promise! Your entire house will sparkle! lol!

Karen said...

That commercial is hysterical. Thankfully, and my computer screen is thankful too, I had swallowed my coffee before the fly exited. :-)

Claire looks so cute ...love the pumpkin tinge :-)

If it makes you feel any better, I once left the twins sitting outside the netball courts, for TWO hours. I forgot that I had to pick them up after Christina's practice and went grocery shopping instead. Twenty years on, I still feel guilty. The fact that my daughter reminds me of it, anytime she can, probably doesn't help either!!!

Emily said...

She is such a cutie! I love those cheeks. Ok, I can't get within a 15 mile radius of the police without getting some kind of citation! Good for you for avoiding them!

Sarah said...

Man, I missed Square Root Day! Too funny. I had to stop by and tell you about the April Scholastic order - Lucky version. There's a John Deere Drive Green computer game in it for $15. I thought of you when I saw it!

Smoochiefrog said...

It was only 11:20ish when I posted my comment, and I was so tired I said Pi day instead of square root day.

Yup. One ought not post comments on others blogs when tired. That's proof.

Becky said...

Girl...why in the world do you have concealer that color? My Goodness that baby is orange! LOL!

Very funny stuff there:)

Nana said...

Love the make up. Hope it goes with your home decor.

Tanielle said...

Too funny! Have a great Thursday!

Tiffany said...

I have had to re-wash my bedding, comforter and pillow cases several times due to concealer!

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the concealer pic! precious!

Lindsay said...

Oh my, that is a lot of concealer! Makes me glad I don't wear make-up. ;)

Mariah said...

Loving her make-up... so classy, and that orange, it goes perfectly with her eyes...

I considered giving up chocolate for Lent, but I'm with you, not during cadbury season. NO WAY

Shauna said...

I am new here! What a great blog :)

Z's Mom said...

Love the picture of the orange child! You are hilarious...and so is that commercial! Thanks...I definitely needed a laugh!

I am Harriet said...

Hi!
I'm just stopping by via SITS to say "hello".
Have a great day!

Mrs Parks said...

Wyat is now determined to swallow a fly to see if that would really work!

I see someone has a bright future ahead of them at the Walgreens cosmetic counter!!

ImakehairROCK4u2 said...

My kids sit very very quiet in the backseat of the car because they know if they don't make a peep, I'll forget they are there and drive right past the pre-school! Then they yell, "Mommy! Do you even know where you're going?"

I just popped in from SITS...love your blog!!!
