Ear Ow-ies

Every time I repeat this story it gets shorter and shorter so this is the shortest version. Yesterday Sydney fell somehow(not sure) and her ear split open all the way through and even broke the skin behind her ear. She was very brave the entire time. We weren't sure how bad it was until the doctors cleaned the area and realized the cartilage was completely cut through. She had to be sedated while they stitched her up. She is back to her playful self and still insists on climbing everywhere. I didn't realize I gave birth to a monkey but everyday she confirms that. She gets her stitches out next sunday morning. It looks like her and Mike Tyson had a fight and he's back to his old tendancies-biting ears.

Batteries or bras?

I find myself always mixing up words, especially when it comes to sayings. It puts me in embarrassing situations. I thought I would starting writing them down. Maybe my plunderings will put a smile on someone's face.
A few weeks ago I was a Target looking for batteries. I have learned with 2 small kids that the easiest thing for me to do is ask someone what aisle something is in so I don't end up walking in circles in a huge store. The first I person saw was to guys stocking shelves. I said, "Do you have any double D batteries?" They grinned at eachother and one guy said, "Are you looking for batteries or bras?"
