I Know Just What I Need...

A cupcake that is 25 times the size of a normal cupcake! A normal cupcake is just so fatty and sugary that the only thing that could make it better is for it to be 25 times bigger than it already is.
I apologize for my meaningless rant. This is just what happens when you are at home sick with a sick baby doing nothing but watching tv and commercials for ridiculous inventions. Am I the only one that's seen this one? The mom gives the kids a cupcake and they look at it with dismay because it's so small. She comes back with a new cupcake the size of Maryland and there's happiness all around.
The first time I saw it I thought it was the dumbest thing that I had seen since the microwave egg thingy. Now, just like the microwave egg thingy, the colossal cupcake just seems like the best thing since sliced bread. There are just so many things that you can do with a ginormous cupcake! Like bake it and then put blue frosting on it or bake it and put red frosting on it or put sprinkles on it..
I'll have to get back to you about it's other uses after I order it. Right along side the wall toothpaste dispenser, the instyler, and "shoes under".

You Deserve a Break Today

I can't remember where this little slogan comes from, but it comes back to me in a now muted jingle that reminds me of childhood and the 80s. Somehow it evokes images of jelly shoes and leg warmers. Maybe it was a McDonalds commercial. In any case, I'm taking the advice.

Both of my babies are at home sick today. It had me really frustrated until I decided to act like both of my babies are at home sick today and to stop trying to do everything else. Mainly, realizing that doing the dishes, creating a website, sweeping leaves off of the deck, and scrubbing this random spot out of the family room carpet are all things that are unimportant. My hands are full enough with keeping the kids both kids drugged and trying to convince my one-year-old that he actually does have the flu and that him lying down would help us both out a lot more than throwing all of the dvds that were once under the television onto the floor.

I deserve a break today. No, I'm not saying that I'm going to take a break from parenting my sick kids and head to the spa (although it sounds tempting). I'm giving myself a break from trying to be everything to everyone. I'm telling Superwoman to go fly south and taking the "S" off of my chest and just being mommy to two sick kids. Excuse me while I get back to nose wiping...
