Same with DS last year. When he started to come out of it, the comments were hillarious. I think he asked the nurse 5 or 6 times, "Is the needle still in?"

I can't believe I didn't think to try that. I hang my head in shame.

Yah… hate it when you can’t help them. It doesn’t get any better latter on when it bocomes necessary for you to let them sink or swim on their own.
That’s the hard part of parenting.

When our boy heads off site next year, I may have to fumigate his end of the house and have it blocked off for a while until the toxicity become tolerable for human habitation again.

I’m just trying to imagine what the dorm room will be like.

Morning gentlemen.

Just checking in. I can tell the kids were with their grandmother this weekend. They are listening like a box of rocks and are amazed they are getting in trouble for not listening.

Thanks for putting the stats together again Rob. Hope your work stuff has settled down a bit.

I'm guessing the dorm room will be like his current room only with more Ramen.

We were told by doctor never to wake him as it can be dangerous somehow. After about an hour and a half he fell back to sleep and then woke up normally about 20 minutes later. Can you say "REDRUM"? It was really creepy.
We've been dealing with this too with our oldest. Sometimes she remembers them the next day and sometimes not. it's happening most nights. School Counselor says they're night terrors, but she doesn't seem too terrified. Every now and then she really freaks out but she's normally just confused.

I just decided to make my half-way point near a friend's house. If I'm low on water I go there. I also plan on using his bathroom, but he doesn't know that yet.

Wow. I thought ours was a lot. We've been living on a super tight budget for years anyway so unfortunately there's no more fat to trim. Ours will be almost entirely from fundraising and draining the savings account. Some stocks might get sold ahead of schedule as well.

I called my congressman last week about this. I congratulated him on his re-election and I'd love to keep voting for him, but I'll be watching to see if he gets behind the Making Adoptionn Affordable Act.

I usually just own one game at a time. Right now it's Madden. I haven't had a Madden game for almost a decade and I'm loving this. I had one of the previous Assasin's Creed games. I barely remember the campaign but I thought the multiplayer was worth the price. Totally different than running around shooting people. Much more thinking involved.

I'm holding off on getting any new games til I see more about the new XBOX.

Congrats.
Thanks. New stick under the tree this year. Didn't even know they made composite FH sticks. It needs to be light blue.

DD went with my mom this weekend and I know what you mean. I love mom to death, but she REALLY needs to remember they are not 3 any more. The bigger issue this time was they went to make a Christmas list. My mom bought her 3 items on the list while they were out and let her have them. REALLY? Whats the point of making a list? I think we have a 3 day boot camp training every time they come back from there. Of course the wife tells me for the 3 days that it is my fault.
