the Girl

I bought this blueberry and almond oatmeal from Target yesterday (Archer Farms) and I have pretty much never eaten such delicious oatmeal in my life. I feel ready to do a commercial for it, it is so stinking good. I kept singing it's praises as I was eating it and the kids were like, "Mom, we get it. It's good. Maybe we will like it when we are adults. Get over it." If you love oatmeal like I do you must purchase it.

I am a sweaty mess from running. I should get out of these nasty clothes and shower. I have decided that I would get on a decent schedule this week and get up when Dear Sir gets up (around six) and take care of him (yes, that means make his lunch and feed him breakfast and then give him a kiss) then run for an hour and then take care of the kids. I have been schooling the Girl early and that has been going well. She is reading a book about the Civil War. It is funny to hear her read words like "Rockwall Jackson" "Rebs" "Feds" "Will did not want to get shot" "cannon" and "Appomattox". It helped her along to know that a girl wrote the book.

I swear, having Amazing Allysen has helped in some ways. At least for now. She is toted around and calls my Girl 'best friend' and chats with her, so it helps with the loneliness department. I know that sounds sad. The Girl even made a bed for her. The boys love to make the doll play games and she seems to respond the best with the Oldest because he has that Mickey Mouse voice, I imagine. He gets annoying though because he yells through the house just to be annoying and then Allysen gets confused and makes my Girl repeat stuff. You know, talking to Allysen is much like talking to the robotic people when you want to deal with the phone company or check your balance on your credit card. Allysen also, from time to time, says, "Brrrr...I'm cold...can you put my pants on?" and she has pants on already. I suppose the sensors are off a bit. My Girl just shakes her head, looks at me and says, "she always says that."

Have a sensational weekend. Allysen just "dared" my Girl to hug herself and scream, 'I love myself'! She actually did it. Do you guys remember "Talking Tina" from the Twilight Zone? That's all I am saying about that....

I remember Talking Tina was really creepy, but I can't remember what she did. What did she do?

Anne said...

Talking Tina? That sounds familiar. BUT, I don't want anything to do with dolls and talking. I'm kinda freaky like that.

That doll sounds a little, no, make that VERY scary.

I don't like blueberries. Or oatmeal.

Ick! I'm hot! Can I take my pants off? LOL

A doll that encourages children to scream? Oh my. Clearly invented by a childless person. ;-)

I wonder if we have those kind of oatmeal bars here. My husband likes that kind of stuff so I could buy him a special treat. :)

I don't ever remember dolls being quite so lifelike - back in my day, dolls were dolls and nothing more although I did have a "walking doll" which couldn't walk on her own anyway.

I like flavored oatmeal with ten pounds of sugar added.


Beware the doll!

Could you use the doll to prop up your mail box?

I want to sue people who create and market these dolls. They are the perps indeed.
