Just Chillin in the Closet

Just the way you are...

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause you are amazing
Just the way you are

Puppy Love

The kids really love each other.  They are chillin in a new chair from Auntie Rachel.  Why are they topless?  That's just who they are.  They're watching cartoons on their iMac.  They told me yesterday that they are going to live together forever.  They also made plans on how to split up the Wii games between themselves "when mom and dad are dead".

Jana bit all the way through her lower lip today... and went right back to doing cheerleading stunts. I think she cried for about 5 seconds total.

Then later, Michael asked me, "Mom, when you are running on a treadmill, where do you attach the safety shutoff if you don't have any clothes on?" I reassured him that probably no one is going to be running naked on a treadmill... glad he was thinking ahead though!

Jana "Club" Dancing

I put Jana's old dresser in the living room to take out to the garage tonight (when Matt can carry it for me). Jana saw it there and ran for a sword and a pair of my high heels. She will make anything her stage. She is watching herself in the mirror. Where did she learn some of these moves?

Ghetto Gym

Wow, my camera phone is really terrible.

The kids didn't have school today (or yesterday) because of extremely cold weather. So Michael was with me when I took Jana to her acting class today. Jana's acting class is 2 hours long so Michael and I went to Northside gym to kill time. First of all I would never normally take a kid to the gym, it is totally against gym etiquette. But Northside happens to be the only gym in town that allows kids on the equipment so I thought we could give it a try.

The crowd at Northside is mainly gang bangers and "special-needs" people. The special-needs people are fine, but the thugs are super annoying. Fortunately, even scroungy convicts know better than to cat-call a lady in front of her son.

Michael rocked it at the gym. He tried out the elliptical machine, the stair stepper, and some free weights, but he really loves to run so he spent most of his time on the treadmill and the jogging track. He was all happy when a bunch of tattooed Hispanic guys were watching him on the treadmill and cheering him on. I thought he looked cute with his earbuds and the treadmill at like a 40 degree incline.

I happened to fall off the treadmill today (not paying attention) which was really awesome because it gave everyone in the gym something to laugh about for the next 20 minutes. :D
