Mac fell out of bed yesterday morning

I woke up to the sound of a thud followed by crying, bolted upright, looked around and no Mac on the bed. I peeped over the side of the bed and there he was on the floor crying. Luckily, he didnt seem to have hurt himself, at least I dont think so - it's now almost like looking for a needle in a haystack to try checking for new bumps on his head amongst the old, sigh... I normally pile up pillows and blankets around the exposed sides of the bed as obstacles & not quite sure how he got over them. Probably rolled on top of the regular pillows to sleep on and somehow rolled his way round to the sides and ... plop! I'm quite sure if our bed was the size of a football field, I'd still wake up to find him on the other end of the field! I took this a couple of weeks ago - 3.30am after scrounging and rolling around for half an hour, this is finally the position he found most comfortable :)

MV Doulos, the book ship is here and we'll be going there later on. I was fairly disappointed with the selections though the last time it was here so hoping it'll be better this time. The main reason though is to show Mac a 'bot' :) I wonder though, whatever happened to Logos? That was the book ship I remember from my childhood. I was SO excited to hear of an entire ship filled with books and couldnt wait for my Dad to bring me! When I have some time, I think I'll go google for it. As always, there's lots more I want to write (more than anyone wants to read :D) but I need to try finish a LO I've been reworking on for a few days although I'm thinking it'll mostly probably end up in the trash or the "unfinished folder"! I'll leave you with a pic of Mac's version of a "cute face" :D

"The Mom Song" sung to William Tell Overture by Anita Renfroe - Saw this in You Tube and just LOVE it!! It's totally hilarious!!<

Get up now Get up now Get up out of bed Wash your faceBrush your teeth Comb your sleepyhead Here's your clothes and your shoes Hear the words I said Get up now! Get up and make your bed Are you hot? Are you cold?Are you wearing that? Where's your books and your lunch and your homework at? Grab your coat and gloves and your scarf and hat Don't forget! You gotta feed the cat
Eat your breakfast, the experts tell us it's the most important meal of all Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall Please remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at 3 today Don't forget your piano lesson is this afternoon so you must playDon't shovel Chew slowly But hurry The bus is hereBe careful Come back here Did you wash behind your ears?Play outside, don't play rough, will you just play fair?Be polite, make a friend, don't forget to share Work it out, wait your turn, never take a dare Get along! Don't make me come down there
Clean your room, fold your clothes, put your stuff away Make your bed, do it now, do we have all day? Were you born in a barn? Would you like some hay? Can you even hear a word I say? Answer the phone! Get off the phone!Don't sit so close, turn it down, no texting at the table No more computer time tonight! Your iPod's my iPod if you don't listen up Where are you going and with whom and what time do you think you're coming home?Saying thank you, please, excuse me makes you welcome everywhere you roam You'll appreciate my wisdom someday when you're older and you're grown Can't wait till you have a couple little children of your own You'll thank me for the counsel I gave you so willingly But right now I thank you not to roll your eyes at me
Close your mouth when you chew, would appreciate Take a bite maybe two of the stuff you hate Use your fork, do not burp or I'll set you straight Eat the food I put upon your plate Get an A, get the door, don't get smart with me Get a grip, get in here, I'll count to threeGet a job, get a life, get a PHD Get a dose of, "I don't care who started it! You're grounded until you're 36" Get your story straight and tell the truth for once, for heaven's sake And if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump, too?
If I've said it once, I've said at least a thousand times before That you're too old to act this way It must be your father's DNA Look at me when I am talkingStand up straighter when you walk A place for everything and everything must be in place Stop crying or I'll give you something real to cry about Oh!
Brush your teeth, wash your face, put your PJs onGet in bed, get up here, say a prayer with mom Don't forget, I love you And tomorrow we will do this all again because a mom's work never ends
You don't need the reason whyBecause, because, because, becauseI said so, I said so, I said so, I said soI'm the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom!! Ta da!!!
