Christmas in July

So, it was one of those weekends at the home of Busy-Dad-E.

Mom-E and Dad-E are both tired, with that "I'm not sick, but I have a scratchy throat and feel ere so slightly yucky."

Small men are not tired, and in fact have excess energy, and are extremely ere so slightly mischevious and VERY whiny/bickery.

The result is that Mom-E and Dad-E have started making a Christmas list (hey it's July, why not).

Please help us out with any/all of the following:

1. 30 hours in a day clock

2. One of those Time Turners from Harry Potter to add even more time to 30 hour days.

3. Mom-E and Dad-E Clones to attend to whichever child is awake and screaming any given hour of night.

4. Semi-Automatic Benadryl Dart Gun with Extra Belt Clip

5. A Remote Control for the boys, complete with mute and pause buttons, a W-Chip (Whine Blocking Chip), and a sleep timer that doesn't go off before 7 am.

6. A non-alcoholic beverage that has the same tastes and effects as regular alcohol, that isn't passed into breast milk (for Mom-E and other nursing moms everywhere). And while your at it, how about a new Coke Zero that actually takes like regular Coke

7. A plane ticket for my blogger friend and NYPD member O'Shea to come to our neck o' the woods as a "motivational speaker" for my boys on good behavior, with particular emphasis on not whining.

Have a good week,


  1. Love it! I wish for those things too! love, aunt-e

  2. I am so there! :-). Did my wife ask that to be a one way ticket?

  3. I hope you get all you asked for! :)

  4. are you getting better now? You may try Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa ( i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it’s effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it’s still good to use on not so serious scratchy throat.
