Long Long way to go


I was going to go out and play a hard and heavy game of Bingo tonight, BUT in the last 24 hours our weather temperatures have dropped over 100 degrees...Yes 100..
How you ask is that even possible?..Let me fill you in.
Yesterday it beamed at around 50 degrees for a couple hours, it was wonderful. then something bad happened.
the big ass arctic wind made his way back, and has dropped a bomb. A bomb filled with a balmy negative 50....yup....its -50 now....
Well the air temp is negative 19, with our wind blowing at 40 miles per hour, it drops it to the -50 mark.
this lady does not go out of doors in that.....not ever.
So no Bingo...I bet I woulda won big too.
sonsabitches.
this is my last post for the week, cause I have shit to do....so...

Anyway, Friday is going to be my little girls birthday. My wee one will be 8 years of age and its very weird.



When I had her, the boy was just turning 3...I had spent three years with a tot whom was a male, and so I had no idea what to do with a girl.


Even though I myself am a girl, I still didn't know what the hell to do with her.

So I did what any good mom would do...I bought lots of pink shit.



turns out, my baby hates pink, but I did not know this at the time...





this is her the first summer we lived here. She was 4 here. the same age Boo is now.





My little girl loves her dog, her cats, her fish, and Zac Efron, which is making her real close to getting the tar beat out of her by the very woman her birthed her.





that is when she lost her first teeth.....








this was over the summer....we spent lots of time at the beach....she would tell me she wants to have a suntan like I do...







she got pretty close, but I told her I purchase my tan in the winter on a monthly basis so by summer it isn't so hard to get a glow...She wanted to save her money so she could buy a tan with me...bless her soul.






No baby, u cant go to the tanning salon with me...that would be like me buying u liquor when your 12....that would make me a bad mommy.






this is my baby now.


.




So my dear ole Blondie is turning one year older...she has a boyfriend who gives her jewelry and writes her notes that say things like..




do u love me? cause if not i have three other broads I'm gonna ask out...




little prick..




I saw this pic when I was going thru some shit, its my Boo, she musta been 2 or under..Look at her gapping diaper...what mother does this and then photographs it?


.



She is just doin some shopping...


Anyway, I hope my little 8 year old has a great birthday....But since I am the mom and in charge of all the fun to be had, chances are its gonna be not so pleasant. . and in 10 years from now she will be doing Celebrity re-hab with Doctor Drew...


Happy Birthday Blondie...


your getting a new bike...

1 plus twins said...

oops forgot, tell her happy birthday!!

Flip Flop Momma said...

1pt,
really?...I need that sleeping bag..

!!!!!!!!

ok I will tell her;)

Groovy Mom said...

I hate doing birthday parties. What can you do when you're a mom. You gotta do the b-day thing unless you want someone to write a book about you someday, not in a good way. So, good luck to you on the birthday deal, and happy birthday, Blondie!

Flip Flop Momma said...

Groovy Mom,
true true..

we are going bowling...my baby wants to bowl.

Scarlet said...

That reference to Celebrity Rehab was scary. Let's pray that NEVER happens to any of our kids, OKAY??

I wish Blondie a very happy birthday and that whoever that boy is to watch himself because he doesn't know what he's getting himself into. Better stick with Zac Efron!

Flip Flop Momma said...

Scarlet,
thats one scarey show huh?...its like a train wreck, u just gawk and gawk....and u feel all ashamed.

damn...

and dirty..

zac is mine though...she needs to move on;)

Foster Communications said...

Love, Love, Love the drooping diaper shot!!!! You HAD to take the photo!

Have fun with Blondie's birthday! I hope you're feeling better. This cold is sure to freeze the asses off any damn germs, at least.

Krystal said...

The droopy diaper shot was obviously taken after she'd been playing in the sprinklers or a baby pool. Her hair's all wet. You're safe.

Happy Birthday to Blondie. You know, we buy the kids off so we don't have to have a party. It's a party and $20, or cake with the family and $75.

Works like a charm...

Katie said...

Happy birthday Blondie!

Southern Sage said...

Ok thats it. That little shit head has infringed on my copyright. I used that same line from 5 to 24. How can that litle doo doo head used my marraige proposal on your daughter??
sheeeeeeesh
Happy b-day to Boo Boo

Emma Sometimes said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your Blondie!! :) What a cutie pie.


I'm making a Happy Birthday card on my blog. Come and leave a note!

Tom said...

Facing west.....and a big salute to Blondie!! Being 8 years old is a great year!

just_tammy said...

Happy Birthday,Blondie! Are you going to buy her the sleeping bag thing?! Hey, be happy she's just eight. My Boo turned 16 on the 16th, had a very small pizza and movie party at home with an ice cream cake (do you have any idea how much those suckers cost now?), and countless presents. She was supposed to get her license on her birthday as well but her bus went ice skating at low speed into a semi. We finally got it on Friday since her permit was going to expire. The kid doesn't even really like driving but she's now on the insurance. Oh, happy day!

Hate how the weather teased us!!! Having snow the day after a beautiful day sucks!

Why invest in lil swimmers when it's much more fun to see how much water a super absorbent diaper will hold?!

Flip Flop Momma said...

Jess,
can u hardly belielve how cold it is?...its like...OH MY GOD..

Krystal,
damn....thats some good thinking there...

Katie,
thanks..i will pass it on to her;)

SS,
well maybe she stol the line from the boy, maybe he has charm just like daddy..hahahahaha

Emma,
on my way.

tom,
dont face 2 far west, cause its 50 below zero, I dont want u getting a chill.

tam,
damn she was in an acciedent?...poor dear..hope she is ok.

I think i might get it, where was it? walmart?...

we didnt get any snow, but we have 45 below zero and school is delyaed 2 hours...can u top that?..ha

just_tammy said...

Yeah, I think it was Wal-Mart. Yep, now that I glance over at 1 plus twins comment I know that's where it's at. You can borrow it so you can snuggle up in it on the sofa to watch your DVD.

Everyone was fine just rattled and then beyond late getting to the bus stop since the report had to be filed. She has a phone for emergencies such as this so I knew right away and had to run around the parking lot in the snow telling the other parents. We still could have tried going to the DMV but she just wanted to be off the road. Can't blame her!

You win in the wind chill department but we got the snow...explain global warming to me again...

Flip Flop Momma said...

I keep waiting 4 global warming to set here....it must 4get there is a Minnesota...

Janell said...

Blondie is gorgeous. Is she as smart as she is pretty?

Happy birthday, Blondie and enjoy that new bike!

That droopy diaper shot is a classic.

catrina said...

Happy Birthday Blondie! And Momma, you made a BIG mistake! As I told my brother when my niece started dating, you could have kept her at home if you just hadn't potty trained her! But it's too late for you, too! :-)

Flip Flop Momma said...

Janell,
not smart enough to stay away from boys;)

but thanks 4 saying shes purty;)

Catrina,
shoot....and she was potty trained at 14 months, so I went wrong long long ago;)

and my Boo who is 4, I shoulda let it slide...shoulda kept her in Pampers cause a pre school boy likes her....

damn it, where were u 7 years ago?

Diva said...

Awwww, it's perfect when they grow older and older and older, girl!

One day they will be all growed up and you'll be able to have ragin parties and wild monkey sex again without explaning what those funny noises are.

Happy Birthday to ya, kid! You got a helluva Momma.

Patti said...

Happy Early Birthday Blondie!

I'm sure Blondie could really care less if he has other chicks on the string. She looks like an independent little lass to me (like her Momma)

CMB said...

Happy Birthday to that beautiful girl! I too had my son before my daughter and he was 3 1/2 when she was born. We are quickly finding out she is not a girly girl and we are thrilled.
Love the pictures. Kids are adorable. Enjoy the weekend.
As for the weather - I am on your side.

Doozie said...

you need to school blondie in the ways of a harlot, in order to one-up little jerks like her "boyfriend".....

damn males

The Egel Nest said...

metalmom said...

A new bike?
I think Mom rocks!

Happy Birthday,Blondie!

Jamie Dawn said...

Happy Birthday to your beautiful Blondie!!
I hope her day tomorrow is lots of fun.
I'm sure you will see that she gets lots of cake and food and presents.
If you spoil her, she will not care that her party sucks.
Is she getting a Zac Efron poster??
I didn't think so.
YOU probably want one!!
STAY WARM!!!!!
Your weather sucks BIG time.
Our coldest day was this past Saturday when the high was 35. Then, two days later it was 68. It's crazy! Now, we're back to the upper 40's and lower 50's which is tolerable. Not a speck of snow yet, but we had some hail last night.
Holy hail!!
If we drive north only about four hours, we get into HELL WINTER territory, so I'm staying down here!

Rachel said...

Those little ones grow fast, so have a big blast for her birthday party. I hope she has a great one!!

Keep warm!!

Bradley's Mom said...

Just want to wish Blondie a WONDERFUL birthday!

I'm sure her party will be great!

We are having a horrendous snowstorm here today, and it's very cold! So we sympathize with you!

Come on spring, get here soon!!

Love ya,
Linda

Working Mom said...

Happy birthday Blondie! I hope she (you) gets a buttload of Zac stuff!!

Avery Gray said...

Aw! What a sweetie!

Happy Birthday, Blondie! Hope it's great!

The Kept Woman said...

Happy birthday to her and happy birthing day to you.

Drink up, mama!

IamDerby said...

Cliff said...

Okay I'm lol but I'm not saying at what. Funny.

Packof2 said...

Man she has grown up!

Happy Bday to her & a big SCORE on her getting a bike.

No_Newz said...

Happy belated birthday to your girl. I bet you woulda won enough money to buy the kid her own tanning bed to keep at the house! Stupid weather!

You can tell boo is full of swimming pool water. LOL! I remember those days so clearly. I kind of miss them too.
