i want to live here....

so, the weather, the sunshine, the family time, all of it, i want to stay here forever. i guess everyone feels that way on vacation. i am sleeping well, feeling well, hell even my skin is clearer. (my acne hit my on my 26th birthday this past year and i swear it won't go AWAY!)

anyway, i will step away from the way i have been doing these vacation posts to approach another, more interesting subject. i must forewarn you tho......i hope i am not offensive about what i am gonna write, but i have to get it out. i missed mama loco's pissed off post, but if i didn't i would have written about this...

kids.

yeah, i know. we all know they are sniveling, whiny, needy little they are precious gifts from God. but sometimes wheni happen to be on vacation, enjoying my family and our time together i wish there were no other children. anywhere within 50 miles of me.

why? well, let me start by saying, my child is certainly no angel. somedays he makes me want to pull my hair out and run away screaming. however.....i always make it a point to make sure other people aren't feeling that way because of him.

you see, i understand that other people don't have children and so maybe they don't want ot hear mine whining. i get it that not everyone thinks my kid syas and does the most cutest, adorable things. i realize that allowing my child to run around like a mindless idiot is not conducive to everyone enjoying themselves.

sadly, i have discovered that not many fellow parents get those facts. they allow their children to push, shove and scream to get their way. they think their child should be the only one at the front of the line at all times. they even let their 6 year old push their 2 year old in a stroller down a hill in a crowd of 150 people without a care.

when you pay $150 extra dollars for a private tour of penguins because you know they are your sons favorite animal and some spoiled rotten piece of shit 5 year old 5 year old girl is whining the whole time once she's had her turn to pet the penguin that everyone else is taking too long. her parents were disgusted. oh, but not with her. with us. for taking too long. i wanted to reach out and trip them while they walked. i also wanted to not go to jail.

trust me, i am not the parent of a perfect kid. i know it. but....as a parent i do feel it is my job to keep him from disrupting others who don't love him the way that i do.

maybe i should have said my complaint was about parents.

anyway, we did have a great last two days, yesterday we sat at the pool for hours and then today we went to seaworld, and had fun petting penguins! out to dinner, where we stuffed ourselves with mexican and now we are gonna go see the animals at night!

i got my very first award ever the other day from just a chic and i screamed in my chair! ( i love that freakin woman!) here it is...



ok, now i pass it onto 8 people......

shannon: she is my running inspiration

shauna: this girl never has a bad word to say, i won my first ever prize from here, and she is always cheerful!

megan: i call my kid fatboy, she calls her kid chunky monkey, i love it!

melissa: i'm pissed off and you're fixin to hear all about it. 'nuff said.

cammie: i know justa chic already tagged her, but she was the first blog i ever started to follow and there is something about that i just can't forget:)

kristina p.: she wears NOTHING under her snuggie!

ok, there are so many more reasons why i love these girls, but i am tired, and the wine bottle is begging me to finish her up......

so, i will leave you my dear friends, my in my starting to be tan self and you in your still winter weather skin.......

Its raining in South Florida now...boooo

Heather said...

Yep, I felt the same way about Florida.

However, come June, when the tourists and humidity join forces, we will be glad we were only visiting in March. Dontcha think?

Yep, the parents get on my nerves way worse than the kids.

Glad you've had a great vacay. Did you get pics of the penguins?

I'm coming over from Blog Stalkers Unite, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight I believe. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥
