I’m registered

Black Friday…Cyber Monday/Week…Wednesday….whatever the day, there are only 28 days until Christmas so I thought I would make it easier on everyone who wants to shower me with gifts. I have registered at Toys-R-Us for toys I would like. You are more than welcome to go off script and buy whatever you think I’ll like, but there are no guarantees so shop elsewhere at your own risk.

And yes, I know Christmas is about more than gifts so rest assured I will also be spreading the love. But keep in mind I’m six so perspective is still skewed.

The link below, you will go to Toy-R-Us wish list. All  you need to do is enter my last name in the “Creator” box and shop until you can’t shop anymore.


In case you forgot how adorable I am, see below….


Gangnam Style – an ‘ode to Psy

Not saying Psy is my idol, but the man has some moves….


Turkey day at school

We had our Thanksgiving Feast at school the other day. I was very excited about it because daddy was able to come eat with me and we were going to go through the lunch line for the first time. I have always been nervous to go through the line by myself, but this time I was going to be able to show daddy how it was done so I had all the confidence in the world. I even got to pay for daddy’s lunch with my school card – it’s not a black card from Amex just yet, but it gets me by.

The food left a little to be desired, but all in all it was fun and we also got to dress in “clothes” we designed ourselves out of paper bags – although it was Native American garb so I may have been on the wrong end of that deal.

Crossing the picket line

My daddy isn’t particularly political in the sense he doesn’t attend conventions or fundraisers for any particular political party, but he is strong in his beliefs. One of those beliefs is his stand against Chick-Fil-A for their view on gay marriage. He knows everyone is allowed their opinion and he appreciates that liberty, but he also appreciates his right to patronage any business he chooses for whatever reason. Without getting too political in this post, he has been boycotting Chick-Fil-A since all the hoopla broke about their CEO saying marriage was between man and woman, essentially saying gay marriage was wrong – otherwise, why state what is already legally in place?

Well, my school partners with certain restaurants/fast-food places where we send all of our students’ families there to eat and my school gets a certain amount of the proceeds. It just so happens that the other day the partner was the dreaded Chick-Fil-A. My mommy was working and I really wanted to go to see if any of my classmates were there so that left daddy and his principles. He stayed silent hoping I wouldn’t mention it again, but I wanted to go. Daddy finally said that he would take me because me wanting to socialize and see kids in my class and build relationships was so important that he  was willing to put his own beliefs on hold  in order to not stunt my social development.

So off to Chick-Fil-A we went….I didn’t see anyone I knew, but I sure did love the grilled chick nuggets. That was one of my daddy’s biggest fears – I would like something there and since I am so picky when it comes to food, I would want to add that to the rotation. I do like it a lot so daddy may have some figuring out to do.



Excerpts from the referenced article above….

CEO Dan Cathy:”I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.”

 Its charitable arm, WinShape, gave nearly $2 million to groups opposing gay marriage in 2010. The owning family, the Cathy’s, also contribute heavily to fellow conservatives. The Cathy’s have contributed more than $81,000 to state and federal politicians since 1990, according to the Center for Responsive Politics and National Institute on Money in State Politics. All but $3,250 of those contributions went to Republicans, all of whom held anti-gay marriage views.

Angry Halloween

Halloween is quickly becoming my favorite holiday – just like mommy. The first couple of years, I didn’t really get into Halloween like I do now. Now, I love decorating the house and yard and carving pumpkins. I also know that I have to say trick or treat loud so I can get some candy from strangers – I’m getting better at that and we had lots of practice this Halloween because we walked all over the neighborhood. This year’s theme for the family was Angry Birds – I was yellow bird, mommy was blue bird, grannie was king pig, and daddy was red bird.

Bear of the Month

October was a great month and perhaps the best on record. Why? Because I was the Bear of the Month at my school…technically, I was one of the Bears of the Month for my Kindergarten class, but the way I prefer to see it was I was THE Bear of the Month. Some may think that this is just something that cycles through the students and that everyone will be at one point or another, but I contend that the math doesn’t work (I sound like Obama there don’t I?). The first clip below shows me accepting my award at our monthly Spirit Day…along with some others that don’t need to be mentioned. Note: I am the only one holding my award up right and waving at mommy, grannie, and daddy. 

The second clip shows our school doing the Thriller dance because we were getting ready for Halloween. And for the record, I do know the Thriller dance, I just exercised my right as an American to abstain from acting like a dancing monkey like the other 500 kids in the gym – even though deep down I kinda want to be one of the dancing monkeys, too.
