Love and other drugs…

This is what my kids love. (Well, this and X-Box Live. I think the Microsoft Corporation is seriously brainwashing our kids {and a whole lot of grown-ass men} thru the consoles. At least all the ones that aren’t being brainwashed by Sony Corp. I’m talking to you PS3 people!)

Summer (unofficial) practice starts today. Ya gotta bowl with the new stuff to really bowl!

We do: Kids Bowl Free!  Click it to sign up. We use the alley we have leagues in, but there is a variety of bowling centers to choose from. Kids Bowl Free is awesome, and I LOVE our regular bowling center, however, it’s farther away from home and gas ain’t cheap. BUT,  I did sign the kids up this year anyway, because it’s still free bowling!

Luckily, we have several bowling corporations in our area so I was able to sign them up for another program too, which I highly recommend:

Summer Unplugged! Free Bowling for Kids! This is for AMF Lanes exclusively.

Click it and sign up. We go EVERY day. No joke. And if you like to bowl, pay the extra and sign yourself up too. It really is a good deal. (Even better if you have your own shoes!) We do two separate programs, but I would recommend the AMF program to start. A few bucks extra, but more summer days, and lots of available bowling time. Also, cheap rates for games if you need to bowl a few more because you are, let’s say, breaking in a new ball, and you need to work on that curve.

Bowling gets you up and out of the house. And it’s pretty good exercise. Do it, even if it’s just so the house feels cooler when you get back! Plus, once you’re out, you may find a whole summer of fun waiting for you on the other side of the couch! Click one, join one, then turn off the computer and GO PLAY!

Sleep Pic of the Day! 2-For-1 Special, Official Summer Kick-Off!

June 21, 2011 at 10:53 am (Sleep Pic of the Day) (, , , , , )

My daughter didn’t know she would be featured in her very own daily picture post! This is at the ungodly hour of 7 am. Straight legged, looking kind of stiff but snoring ever so slightly, hands over her head. I remember reading a long time ago, when I was  fresh mom, that when babies, or kids, sleep with their arms thrown up over their head like that, they are in the most relaxing sleep they can be in. It’s a sign of their pure comfort. No inner baby stress, I guess. I always thought that was a nice thing for new moms to know. You can be assured that you ARE NOT doing a completely crap job if your kid can lay like he/she has no cares in the world, even if it is for a short time, and even though they really don’t have any cares in the world, except food/sleep/poo. Hmm. Actually, I know alot of people like that….but anyway…. even if ALL the babies in the world sleep like that just because they do, it’s still a plus in the parent department.

Here’s a pic after I woke her up at 8 am. I know, I am a MONSTER! She managed to make it all the way to the couch. At least she was out of her bed. That’s half the battle.

Summer. All official like.

June 21, 2011 at 9:46 am (Day to Day, Holiday, Summer Break) (, , , )

June 21. Longest day of the year and looking like it’s going to be gorgeous here in the Midwest/Chicago area. They say rain, but I don’t see it. Makes me want to get outside and run run run. Bruising on the foot has shifted to a mostly central location and my toes don’t hurt that bad.

Time to get up and get out. Band and bowling. Benches and bugs. Birds and Bruises. I could probably keep going, but you get the idea. I have alot of  “B” stuff on here. How strange, but I think we’re going to do an outdoor theme. Better get on it, it’s going to be a long day.
