So I know you all know that this is my 100th post. Cuz you know exactly how many posts I have right?

Anyway I was racking my brain to see what exciting thing I could post for my 100th post. So without further ado I am announcing that.....

I am not pregnant. That's right folks, in about 9 months I will not be giving birth to a boy or girl. This news is pretty great. As much as I do love being pregnant, it's the raising of the child that freaks me out. So there you have it. Spread the word. Mom, I'm sorry you read this announcement on the blog.

So anyhoo there's not much going on in my life that is exactly 100th post-worthy. Lil' Sis turned 11 months old two days ago. I canNOT believe how quickly this year has passed.

Diva serves as my daily entertainment. The things that come out of her mouth make me want to roll my eyes or laugh hysterically or scream in a pillow. I don't understand why preschoolers have to be so fickle. For example:

Lunch Time:

Me: "Hey sweetie do you want a sandwich?"
Diva: "No"
Me: "Are you sure? What about peanut butter and honey?"
Diva: "NO! I don't want a sandwich!"
Me: "I know you're hungry, do you want yogurt instead?"
Diva:"Noooo! I want a sandwich!"
Me:"Uh...ok? Peanut butter and honey?"
Diva: "No I want cream cheese!"
Me: "Okay you can have cream cheese"
*I start preparing a cream cheese sandwich and upon seeing me take out the cream cheese...
Me (and starting to get a teensy weensy exasperated): "But you SAID you wanted one!"
Diva: "NO! I want YOGURT!!!"
*putting my head in my hands mumbling something about the nut house*
*Getting down on my knees and looking her in the eye: "You can have a sandwich or yogurt, which is it?"
Diva:" I want a peanut butter and honey sandwich!"
Me: "SIGH....Okay, go sit down."
*Prepare the sandwich, place it in front of her....hold my breath*
*Diva opens the sandwich...waterworks begin*
*Wishing I could have a lobotomy*

It's just a's just a's just a stage.

Congrats on the big announcement Carl.
Lobotomy!? Wow, you ARE getting desperate. Don't worry she'll outgrow this stage by the time she's a-hehehe- lovely teenager.

Wow, that conversation sounds exactly like many I have at my house. I feel your pain.

Congratulations on not being pregnant! No pressure on being the only one who can have a boy to pass on the family name though.=)

Next time I think you should just make a cream cheese, yogurt, peanut butter and honey sandwich. Yum!

So did you end up curled up on the kitchen floor, pulling your hair out? I would have! Or, I would have said something like, forget it, and lock myself in the bathroom.

Congrats on 100 posts. You've been a much better blogger than me--I'm still not at 100.

I had a dream the other night that you announced that were pregnant and I was going to call you to see if my dream was true...but I guess not. Darn it! Good luck with the little one!

Hahahaha. I know this is an old post, but I seriously go through his all the time with me 3.5 yr old. **rolling my eyes and sighing**
