Baby Duck Bathtub or Doggie Pool Boat?!?

Featured

This is a popular inflatable Munchkin baby bathtub that looks like a giant duck. It looks like this : https://www.amazon.com/Munchkin-White-Hot-Inflatable-Duck/dp/B000066665

This doggie has noticed on Instagram that MANY doggies use the same duck thing as a swimming pool boat. We’ve found so many examples, it’s almost like a game now to find the duck doggie boat/baby bathtub!!! Enjoy all the cute pictures or videos on Instagram!

Price Check For a … Mango?!

Long time no write! We’ve been so busy. Mommy is having a human puppy next month! I’m going to be a big brother but I’ll always be First Prince at the house. Human puppy will be my very own Second Prince! Mommy is still trying to master the art of housecleaning before Second Prince arrives. Mom does a little every day but what she is really doing is making the house less dirty each time she tries to clean! Oh well, at least she has fun trying.

Even though we’ve been busy, Mom has still been up to her usual shenanigans!! The other night, Mom and Dad went to the grocery store to pick up a few items. They checked out at the express lane for people with 15 items or less. There was a well dressed grumpy older blonde lady behind Mom and Dad who had a million items. The high school aged cashier told the lady that the register was closed and also that it was an express lane. The grumpy lady didn’t care because she wanted the shortest line and refused to move. She was in a big big big hurry and the express lane had no line. Too bad she was behind Mom. Oooops. There were some price checks that had to be done. The last price check for a mango took the longest even though the mango display was super super close to the cash register! It was practically next door! Can you believe it? Price check for a mango?! Mom had purchased four mangoes but the price per mango was ringing up completely wrong at the cash register. Mom could see grumpy lady just fuming. All that anger directed at a measly mango!! Oh boy, those six bottles of wine that the grumpy lady had in her cart wasn’t going to make her happy after this! The cash register machine froze and someone else had to come and unfreeze it. Ha ha. The moral of the story? Don’t be mean to a high school aged cashier and always remember that the shortest line isn’t always the fastest line!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! Ta ta for now!

Neverending Battle

I think my human staff member (aka Mommy) has a negative IQ when it comes to housekeeping. It’s a never ending battle. This little doggie tries to supervise but Mommy just can’t keep up. She cleaned the stove on Monday and there was already food on it by Wednesday. She swept and mopped the kitchen floor on Tuesday but there is now gluten-free biscuit mix and maple syrup on the floor. The kitchen counters need to be wiped every day! The dirty dishes in the sink keep growing. Mommy dusted and swept the master bedroom floors on Wednesday but the dust has already reappeared. She did laundry on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but the laundry baskets are full again. Mommy cleaned the washroom sink but it’s dirty again. The bathtub is very dirty after last week’s cleaning. It never ends! She has to keep up or else the house will be condemned by the health authorities. We could hire a maid but they usually only come once a week. Arrrrrrrrgggggghhhhhhhhhhhh. You clean the house and it gets dirty again. When we lived in LA, Mom wanted to enter this reality tv show that featured messy home makeovers but Dad refused! She does try to clean the house even though it doesn’t look like it! Does anyone else have this problem?

Cooking Adventures With My Mommy

So, my Mom signed up to bring dinner to a church friend who just had a baby. Twice. Yes, you can all stop laughing now. Anyone that knows my Mom knows that she can’t cook. Last week, Dad just shook his head, took over the kitchen and made the simple meal that Mom was planning to make. Pasta, precooked HEB Italian meatballs and a jar tomato sauce. It only took Dad 30 minutes to make it all. It went without a hitch except Dad had to go to his home office and do work and Mom was in charge of watching the tomato sauce in the pot. Well, tomato sauce somehow exploded all over the stove and floor! Ha ha, oops!

Well, yesterday, Dad wasn’t around to make the same meal. So Mom cooked it herself. She was so proud of herself for using HEB meatballs. The package said, “Serve HEB fully cooked Italian style meatballs & take full credit for yourself…no one will know the difference.” Somehow, it took ALL afternoon to cook the macaroni, bake the meatballs, and bake some Pillsbury cookies. Mom couldn’t even open the tomato sauce jar so she just brought the jar to her friend. Ha ha! It took forever to boil the large pot to water and cook two bags of macaroni. The cookies came out perfectly but all she had to do was place the circles of cookie dough in the baking sheet. Mom even included something healthy in the meal – a bag of frozen green beans that her friend could stick in the microwave. Her friend still had to finish cooking the uncooked sauce and green beans, ha ha ooops. When Mom came home, she cooked some brown rice pasta and chicken for herself for dinner and finally ate dinner at 8:30 PM. It was so funny to watch Mom “cook” for like five hours yesterday!

Well, I hope everyone has a happy Friday and weekend! Ta ta for now.

Houston, We Have a Problem

Last week, my Mom was on her way to barre class at 8:00AM when she noticed something odd by her car. It was a large black mouse stuck on one of the sticky traps in our garage! Our pest control company put them in our garage. We live in an area with lots and lots of new construction so everyone has been using sticky traps in their garages (most homes here have at least a triple garage so even more room for them to hide). One of our neighbours caught a big rat in their garage sticky trap recently. Yuck! Well, the mouse in our garage had managed to move the sticky trap from the garage door to halfway down the garage. It was moving and wiggling like crazy and trying to break free. Mom was freaking out like crazy! She called our pest control company but they couldn’t send anyone until later in the afternoon/evening/after dinner time. Not cool at all! Mom thought about taking an old curtain rod that we had in the garage, using it to push the trap out into the driveway and closing the garage door. She thought and thought about it but just couldn’t muster enough courage to do it. Mom called a nearby church friend but she was freaking out too. There were many tears that day. Mom kept visiting it throughout the day to make sure that it was still stuck on the trap. The BB Gang Moms were trying to offer her long distance support and advice. Maddie’s Mom kept telling Mom to have a drink (or two) and to NOT visit the mouse in the garage. But it was like driving by a car accident, she had to look and visit the mouse. Of course, this was also the day that Dad was out of town for work and wouldn’t be back until early morning the next day. It always happens. One time, Dad left for Israel and Mom locked herself out of our new townhouse in West LA. We had just moved in and the landlord didn’t have the spare key because we mailed it back to them that day. Arrrrrrgggggghhhhhhh, Mom always has things happening in her life! Mom was so traumatized by the whole mouse incident!

Lots and Lots of Holes!

One time, my Mom had a performance in a student recital after school. It was with her trio (Mom on the piano and two other girls on violin and cello). She grabbed a dress and black tights to change into after school. When she got to the conservatory practice room, she put on her dress and black tights. Uh oh! She had accidentally grabbed a pair of black tights with big holes all along the right side. Grandma always told Mom to throw away socks with holes in them but Mom didn’t listen. The holes were on the side that faced the audience! The dress wasn’t long enough to cover all the big holes. The stage was raised above the chairs in the auditorium. The audience had a spectacular view of all the big holes on Mom’s tights. Mom was sure the audience was more focused on her odd attire than her trio’s stunning performance.

But I Can Really Sew!

Yesterday’s toilet incident was super funny.  Mom wanted to take a picture with her iPhone to show Dad but she didn’t want to also drop her cell phone into the toilet.  Here is another funny story that happened to my Mom:

My Mom had to take Home Ec when she was in junior high. I want to have a talk with her teacher because to this day, she still can’t cook or clean that well! When Mom was twelve and in grade seven, there was this assignment where the students had to use the sewing machine. There was a picture of a butterfly on a piece of paper and the students had to “sew” along the picture without thread. The point was to get little sewing machine needle holes along the outside lines of the butterfly. Mom was using the sewing machine and having a blast tracing the butterfly. When she got to the very end, there was a very tricky turn. Mom thought of a clever solution and used a sewing needle to punch the last three holes by hand. She wasn’t thinking at all and was so happy with her clever idea. Unfortunately, the Home Ec teacher walked by right as Mom was punching out the last three holes by hand. The teacher freaked out and ripped apart the paper. Mom tried to explain that it wasn’t what it looked like but it didn’t matter. Oooops.

I hope everyone is having a good Thursday that is free from silly shenanigans. It’s almost the weekend! Ta ta for now!

A Little Toilet Humour!

Hello, I hope everyone is having a lovely middle of the week Wednesday! I’m sure your day is going better than my Mom’s day. I can’t stop laughing!

Mom decided it was a good day to do some house cleaning. She cleaned the toilets and when she got to the master bedroom one, the toilet brush got detached from the handle stick. It was stuck in the hole of the toilet. She tried to screw the handle stick back to brush part but it got pushed deeper into the hole. Arrrrrrrrgggghhhhhh. Mom asked me if this was an appropriate time to say FML? I couldn’t stop laughing. Mom grabbed a whole bunch of plastic gloves likes these ones http://cleanones.com/products/categories/food-handling/ She tried and tried to get the stupid brush out of the toilet. Mom was freaking out because she did not want to call (or pay for) a plumber so she abandoned her dignity and tried to retrieve it with her hands & three gloves. Mom is germaphobe and hates touching dirty things. After five miserable minutes and some tears along with an angry tirade directed at the brush, Mom pulled out the stupid brush! This little doggie couldn’t help but laugh at her and tell her that it’s her own fault for trying to clean the house! Moral of the story – she should have gone shopping instead!

I hope the rest of your Wednesday goes better than my Mom’s! Ta ta for now!

Parlez-vous français?

Bonjour!  Do You Speak French?

Je ne comprends pas français.

In Canada, everyone has to study French from elementary school to high school. My Mom has some funny stories from her school days.

One time, when Mom was just a kid, she had to take a school French test. It involved going into the storage closet, closing the door and singing “O Canada” in French into a tape recorder. Well, the first time didn’t go so well, so Mom tried to rewind and try again. She kept trying and trying and rewinding but kept laughing instead of singing. Also, she wasn’t sure if she was erasing other students’ renditions of “O Canada”! She could not stop laughing and finally just recorded some giggling. She never found out her grade and the teacher never said anything about it. Maybe the teacher had a good laugh? Mom was pretty sure she recorded over a few other students. Ha ha, oooops. At least it wasn’t the 25% that she got in a high school French test one time. She was pretty mortified by that grade.

Another time, in high school, Mom was writing a paragraph for a French class. She asked some random boy for help and he “corrected” it for her. The problem was, he thought it would be funny to write down absolute nonsense. Mom showed it to the teacher and the teacher was not happy. Ha ha, oops.

Well, I hope these two stories cheered you up! Ta ta for now, bonne journée! XOXO

Who Is That?! What is that?!

One summer, my Mom stayed in Los Angeles over the summer. She was staying in an off-campus USC university apartment and was paired with a very nice roommate. They didn’t know each other but got along very well. One morning, Mom went to the kitchen and noticed what looked like a body rolled in a blanket on the couch. It looked like a human burrito from head to toe. Mom vaguely remembered that someone had come over the night before but did they leave? Where was her roommate? All she could see was the blanket, with no head or toes. Mom stood there and stared. It didn’t move for a very very long time. She couldn’t hear breathing and she was worried that the person underneath had suffocated or was short of oxygen. Mom thought about poking the body to wake it up but then she got scared. She considered using a chopstick or a spoon so that she didn’t have to touch it. Mom decided to go back to her room and hide. She took a peek later on and it still wasn’t moving. After some time, the person woke up slowly. It was her roommate’s sister! Mom was very relieved but she seriously thought it was a dead person on the couch!
