Miscellany Monday... Or Friday

...It's Friday already?! My oh my, look how the lovely time flew. I am absolutely adoring this Fall weather we're getting down south in the good ole' state of Texas! It's a great blessing and break from the intense heat we received this summer. *sighs blissfully* I just realized I missed Miscellany Monday! So, I have decided to do Miscellany... Friday. lol :)

{1} Babysitting, yes, I told you it's all I talk about. lol :D So Wednesday I went to work. For those who don't know I babysit a 20 month old little boy, three days a week. Wednesday being one of them. We had a pretty good day, except for the fact that he decided to fling some applesauce across the kitchen, spit his pees all over me, and slap his hand down in his Ravioli, sending it splattering all over my face, and him *sigh*. I couldn't get my little munchkin to stop playing with his food, so I decided I would put him down to play, and we would try again later. He ended up wanting a bunch of puffs, so he didn't want his lunch. Yeah, he can be a little toot sometimes. But I love him! :) I got some pictures just for you bloggers. I usually bring out my camera, snap a few pics of us, let him snap a few "pics", then he sucks on my camera for a while, and I put it back up. I just like to "document" our days together because I won't be watching him for forever. *sniff* :')

As you can see, he's clearly watching tv in these pictures. This little guy LOVES the Backyardigans! He always says, "Papa tractor Pablo?" (but, it's not that clear) which means he's asking you what Pablo is in that episode (Pablo is his favorite by far!). So Wednesday he said "Papa tractor Pablo?" and raised his hands up with a questioning look on his face. So I told him, "Today Pablo is a bad robot." He got this sad look on his face and said, "Papa tractor Pablo?" over and over, like he was devastated that Pablo was a bad robot. lol :D I tried to cheer him up by saying, "That's okay, Pablo turns into a good robot in a minute," but it didn't work. :)



























{2} Within the last few months or so I have found a few blogs (or, rather, they found me;) around blogger and have been itching to share them with you!!

{4} Now I wanted to ask you, my lovely followers, to pray for me and my family. My dad, especially. For those who don't know, he has MS. He has been out of a job for a year and a half, because he isn't able to work. Right now we're not doing well [at all] financially. It's tough, but God always pulls through, and prayer is powerful! Please pray that God will provide, and heal my dad! Thank you. :)

{5} Tomorrow (Sat.) we are going to my mom's side of the family's Thanksgiving. I will try to get lots of pictures to share with you, but no promises. Haha, usually when I say that, I get there and forget to take pictures. But I really will try! :)

Well, I'm all out of things to ramble about. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I am so excited!... But, I don't think the turkey's are. :)
