Grandma Has Been Released!

Grandma Has Been Released!

Ricky : “Grandma is out of the hospital and we’re at her house, waiting to visit her. She’s at a doctor’s appointment right now. I’m checking out her lawn ornaments while we wait. Mom? Is this angel supposed to have something in her hands??”
Me : “I think she used to have a harp but it broke off.. I’m surprised Grandma didn’t shove something else in her hands.. She’s usually pretty ingenius that way.”
Ricky : “Yeah like how she had Santa riding on a stuffed Bambi when she didn’t have a reindeer! We should think of something silly to put in the angel’s hand and see if Grandma even notices! I think she needs bagpipes!!”
Me : “Yeah.. I’ll keep an eye out for some tiny bagpipes…”
Ricky : “Sounds like a plan!”

Checking out Grandma's Lawn Ornaments

Ricky : “What is this thing??!”
Me : “It’s just a blown glass bulb thingy… It just looks pretty.”
Ricky : “Get a picture of my face in it!!”


Visiting Grandma

Ricky : “Today we’re visiting my Grandma in the hospital. Apparently her heart attacked her. I think it must have grabbed a hold of her hair in that attack because it’s a mess! DID YOUR HEART ATTACK YOUR HAIR TOO, GRANDMA??!”
Me : “Oh my gosh, Ricky! Stop yelling! We’re in the Intensive Care Unit and you’re not supposed to be yelling!”
Ricky : “And I don’t think YOU’RE supposed to be taking pictures in here either!”
Me : “Yeah. I know. SHH! I just wanted to let everyone know that Grandma is doing okay and for them to keep her in their thoughts.”
Ricky : “Well, make sure you blur her up good in the background. She’s gonna be mad if you share a picture of her when she doesn’t feel good.”
Me : “Done!”


Suckered by a Succulent

Ricky : “Sooooo… Mom went to her friend Stef’s wedding a few weeks ago.. Stef had a cactus/succulent themed wedding! She had a table with little things for people to take home and they had this little plant here. Right, Mom?!”
Me : “..yeah..”
Ricky : “So Mom and her friend Lisa looked through ALL the little plants, trying to find the prettiest ones to take home. Mom has a black thumb but she figured that these plants are easy to keep alive, RIGHT MOM??!!”
Me : “..yesss..”
Ricky : “So after she gets home my sister Paige is looking at Mom’s new plant and she says to Mom, ‘You know this is fake, right??!! The leaves have seams! Stick your finger down to the dirt!’ Mom stuck her finger down to the dirt and what happened, Mom??!!”
Me : “I found out that the dirt was plastic and and so was my plant..”
Ricky : “How many beers did you and Lisa have at that wedding, Mom??!”
Me : “One.. but I guess it was one too many.. That or I need to wear my glasses all the time.”


Group Photos Are Fun <=Sarcasm

Ricky : “Mom’s taking a group photo! Everyone behave!”
Rainie : “Crap! I got my shoes on!! Am I supposed to have shoes on??!”
Ricky : “Relax, Rainie! I’ve got mine on and so does Minka… Mom? Juju’s got no shirt on! Everyone’s gonna see her boobies..”
Me : “I don’t think that matters.. Bridgette? Are you sleeping??”
Bridgette : “Noooooo… But since I had to lay on the floor for this picture, I might as well pretend that I am! It gives me a chance to show off my awesome eyelids!!”
Ricky : “Mom! I tucked my dress down between my knees because I was feeling a draft by my coochie! I’m thinking my underwear was showing!! Can you see my underpants??!”
Me : “No. You’re all set. Can I take this picture now??!”
Ricky : “Snap away, Mommy Dearest!!”
Me : **groans**

Rainie : “Ricky, here’s another baby pinecomb..”
