But then I got $5 for sending his tooth to a study on infant environmental exposures. Buy low, sell high! Too bad they only want one tooth from each kid. If I'd kept a lock of either kid's hair from before their first birthday, I could have gotten $40, but alas, I'm not that kind of person.

What'll they give ya for a whole kid? ;)

They look good tonight. I'm giving Mom a shot of penicillin 2x a day, because somebody was up the her elbow in her, which will be an adventure because some goats will tank when you stick 'em and Eary is one of those goats. You have to stand her up and get her moving again...

Those little goats are so cute.

They look a lot like the sheep my father keeps. His are mainly Damara with a bit of cross breeding.

The lambs are so cute, and all different colours.

State Team shirts are done! I had them all set to go last week, then one swimmer got a surprise State Cut at the weekend and so I had to scramble to get her name added to the back and get them done in time -the 12 & under Championships start this Friday morning. The printer told me Thursday, but they were ready today and all the swimmers families and coaches love them. The team are the Otters so the State Team is the......

The picture doesn't really capture that the print is sparkly gold (team colors are Maize and Blue like.... yup (University of Michigan))

and here's the back:

Initially, there was a State Team of 1 -Hebe. But we knew Steven would get loads of cuts and he did. So these two (and their moms) were throwing around ideas and I jokingly suggested this one and the teenagers loved it. We though fine, they're 14, they can be a little risque...... Then Elizabeth decided to join the USA swimming team, and we knew she'd get cuts, and she did. Susana was the surprise. These two are 10. oops. Oh well, they like the sparkly gold and if you're 10, you don't think of it that way..... :lol: Their parents are just so pumped they made it I suspect they'd let them wear almost anything.

oh and consider that an RFN shot too. The light doesn't show the hair color well either, which is actually quite bright right now......

clodfobble, wtg on your dental arbitrage you sly devil you


SonofV has asked me for the fifth time "What smells so good?" I told him (for the fifth time) I'm making dinner!

That makes me happy!

BigV 03-07-2012 09:42 PM

this just in:

"Dad! That was good!" and a big thumbs up gesture from SonofV; a spontaneous affirmation that if you hold off on giving them food, they will like whateverthehell you feed them, when you feed them.

Aliantha 03-07-2012 10:03 PM

I'm happy that max and I cleaned up the back porch and spa area today and did some other chores around the place, and now we've got a couple of chocolate cakes in the oven. I hope they turn out ok since I couldn't be bothered looking up a recipe. lol

All this is making me tired, and I still have to take max and mav for a swim in an hour or so, then off to footy training and a gossip with the other mums, then home to cook dinner.

Hmmmm...I think I might sleep better tonight.
