Monday Fluff....
Mon, 06-14-2004 - 8:47pm

Indulge me. The bathroom remodel has caused my allergies to flare and I just spent 64.00 on prescriptions. I am so tired of sniffling and having goopy eyes. Plus, the kids are hyper and they have figured out how to escape from duct tape. I just want some sleep.

What type of household help do you wish you had? Dream a little. What type of camps do you wish they had for kids and husbands and wacky neighbors?

I wish I had:

Nap time/Bed time consultant

Life manager..Do this Kristi then do this


Really cute errand/dog care provider man

Child mediator

Child motivator

BOB purchaser

Boyfriend finder...Of course, with a BOB, I might not have to find one!


How to develop common sense

How to be nice to your neighbors

Potty training camp

Get rid of your pacifier camp

Electro shock therapy for back talking and whining

Cleaning your room without whining

Finding lost objects by LOOKING instead of glancing at the ceiling and yelling "I can't find it"

Care of sick and cranky spouses (future DH will have to go)

"I do not want to be a princess! I want to be myself"

A BOB purchaser....LOL! I just woke my son up I'm laughing so hard. If you ever make your way to CT, I can take you to several places that sell BOBs...very nice ones. I have a whole box of them myself :)

I wish I had a:




Peronal shopper

Errand runner

Sports coach for DS (so he wouldn't yell "I SUCK" when he strikes out a baseball)


Wildlife specialist (that could help me get rid of the DARN psycho raccoons)

Personal trainer (to help me loose the 10 lbs I gained back over the HOLIDAYS)

Makeup artist/hairstylist

Fashion consultant (what! jeans and a t-shirt aren't fashionable)

Camps for DH:




Camps for DS:




Camps for me:




Thanks, Kristi. You really got me laughing and thinking!

How to develop common sense

Electro shock therapy for back talking and whining - <> or maybe just a cattle prod.

Oh another good one by you, let's see....

For the boys:

A professional mediator for the stupid stupid arguments that the boys can get into.

If I had a BOB pusher, I wouldn't need a BOB purchaser!
