Why i live at the circus

Tonight i was so politely reminded of why I live at the circus. First one of my friends came over to get a haircut. I don't usually do this at home, but she's going on vacation so her and her daughter came over. Well, right after I got done with the haircuts I happened to glance over to my mud room and noticed my little monkey #3 (wearing only his pj bottoms, which are shorts, and his cowboy boots) peeing in a chicken feeder bottle that happened to be on the floor in there. Mind you the bathroom was all of 2 feet away from him. Then he turned around with a proud as punch smile on his face. Oh, was I embarrased!!!! Then he just thought maybe he would eat the eggo that he had put in the toaster this morning. Here are the pictures of him trying to warm up his eggo. He almost spilled the leftover birthday cake that was on the stove-top.

Isn't he just so cute! Not today, is what I say. Right as this was happening my Middle Monkey leans over and says "Mom, did you know that in China you can eat as much rice as you want, and you can eat it all the time" What the heck, where does he get this stuff. Besides I am sure that I have a years supply of Minute rice in my pantry and if he wanted it for every meal that would be fine. It is a little nutricious, right. Oh I hope someone elses house is as crazy as mine.

Hey! Rice is cheap! Buy it in truckloads and let him eat it ALL day long! Yum!

"This is great!" Monkey #3 is training to serve a mission in Liberia, "Now, you need to get him to pee in the streets, and he will fit right in here in Monrovia.

Especially if you get him to eat rice all the time.

I do think he will need a darker suntan to totally fit in.

Good luck on the training. Pap

Only like 3 and a half weeks and we will have a bunch of shit-zu's with breathing disorderes, I cant wait. I found this web site that tells you how to count the pups at 6 weeks in moms belly. The first time I counted 4 the second time I counted 2 and the third time 0 (these were all different days). the web site says you have to be good at it. apparently I am not. I will be down the weekend of 17th hopefully by then they will be here. Do you think they will be ok to travel 3 and a half hours that young?

Sorry about the non edited last comment. I am a big dork. I was concentrating on putting you on my list of favorites. I guess I can;t do both things at once.
