Peanut Butter Cookies and Reincarnation

It was getting late.  Trinity was freshly bathed, in her Sponge-Bob
pyjama's, and I, in my Betty Boop's.
The bedtime snack is usually milk and cookies.  I absolutely love this part of the day, because it means that very soon, I will have the house to myself  some great snuggle time for her and I.
All is calm, all is peaceful.

She is making herself some chocolate milk, while I open the cookie jar to find, much to our horror, it's empty. Neither of us can remember who ate the last one, so we just stood there, giving each other the "suspicious eye".

Quick thinker that I am. . . I decide we have time to make a quick batch of peanut butter cookies before bed.  Nothing like warm, fresh, peanut butter cookies.  Now, before you go all  "Wow, Michele, you're so amazing" on me ~ Let me clarify. . .  I turn on the oven, rip open a package, then dump and stir.
I do not "make" anything.








Trinity loves to crack eggs; and she's pretty good at it.  So, there we were, cracking eggs, telling knock-knock jokes (oh, puh-leeez tell me when that phase will end? Or at least when they will start making sense!)  Then all of a sudden, right out of the blue,

"Momma, do you know what my favorite cookie to bake is? "
"No, Darlin.  What is your favorite?" ( and when the hell did you decide to start calling me "MOMMA") 
"Oatmeal Raisin"
"Oh, really... when did you make oatmeal raisin cookies?  ( WTF? you don't even like raisins!)
"Oh, ya know, when I was Rosa's mommy, we used to make them all the time."
"I'm sorry, when you were. . .  who?"  ( I'm sorry, when you were . . . who?)
"When I was a mommy before I came here:  This IS my third time, ya know."
"Oh, I didn't know that.  Three times, hey?"  ( Um.... this could be a good blog post)
"Yep, three times.  Did you know that when we die, we come back in someone else's tummy?"
"Oh, really?  Who told you that?"  (It better not be SAM !!!! )
"Nobody TOLD me, I just know.  Pfft, everybody knows that. Sometimes you get to stay in the same family, but sometimes you can switch"
"Oh, I see.  That's soo cool. "  (  Wha?? Why couldn't you have said,  SAM?)
"Yep.  Don't you remember?  Last time, I was your grandma, but you weren't you... you were Amelia."
"No sweetie, I"m sorry.  I don't remember being, Amelia.  But, I bet you were an awesome grandma."
"It's okay, it was a long time ago."


And that was that, and nothing more. 
We ate our peanut butter cookies, nice and warm. Washed them down with some milk, and now she is fast asleep. 
 I, however, am sitting here, still trying to get the hair on the back
of my neck to stop tingling.

The Tooth

As promised, here is a quick pic of Trinity's missing tooth; for which she is soooo proud
~ and so am I (although, NOT  "new computer" kind of proud)


Also, I know how much we all hate the "comment verification" thing, but I
was getting alot of spammy stuff for viagra (of all things), had to change my
settings for a while.  Sorry everybody.
Side note to the spammers:  I do not have a penis, nor do I have access
to a penis, at the present time.
If my circumstances ever change, like, for example:  If I ever spontaneously
grow one, or have opportunity to come in direct contact with one, I will
contact YOU at that time.  Thank you.

Face Paint Palooza

Saturday nights are not what they used to be.....



















. . .  and I wouldn't have it any other way!!!

The Abyss - it's a long way down

Seriously... I don't even know where to start! 

I'm soooo ashamed.

It's been like, what??? Forever, since my last post.   I have missed the Blogging world, and all of you so much, I really can't put it into words. 

I'll give you the condensed version...
Managed to catch a little bug called  " H1N1" ???
Perhaps you may have heard of it . . .  
So, ya.  There's me, all sicker than EVER.  Which, of course, developed into pnuemonia. 
Good times, people.  Good times ; )

One morning, I was sooo sick, and so drained; I gave Trinity a donut for breakfast!!
Oh yeah, Mommy of the Year Award is comin' my way.  I can feel it. 

Needless to say, I fell behind on everything. . . and the blog (oddly enough) just had to take a back seat.
So, if I have any followers left, just thought I would let you all know that I'M BACK, and it feels good.
Can't wait to read all of your blogs, and do some much needed catching up.

Lot's has happened in my absence.  Halloween (which I still haven't downloaded pictures of yet) was fun for Trinity.  She was a vampire for school, then changed her mind for the actual day, and went as a cheerleader at the last minute. 
We she scored big time in the candy department,
and I am still she is still making her way through the candy bowl.

More HUGE news (that I also have not downloaded pictures of) is,
she lost her FIRST TOOTH. 
Soo, exciting.  Bottom left.  Fell out at school. 
She asked the Tooth Fairy for a computer. 
This made the Tooth Fairy laugh, and laugh, and laugh...

She told me the next day, after discovering that the space under her pillow did not contain a new "Dell"
"That's okay, Mommy. . . there's always Santa!! "
Santa, indeed. 
Wait a second......... I think I hear him laughing too.

Anyway, gonna keep this one short...
Anxious to get visiting your blogs....

It's good to be back . . .
Michele

Oh, and btw. . . "SAM" is still alive and well, and kissing all the girls.
