My Peeves over the Holiday weekend...

I didn't get to go to my mom's thanksgiving since we had Jaxson, which is ok, but we had to go to Clint's granny's which ALWAYS gives me something to complain about. Clint's aunt has an Autistic child..she doesn't watch him AT ALL. He was running out to the street, and if I wasn't out at my truck getting one of Addison's toys, lord knows what could have happened to him. She never even knew he was outside. I led him back into the house, and said "Teresa, Ethan was out in the road. Lucky thing I was outside to catch him." She looks at me like I just slapped her. "He doesn't go out side with out telling me." "Well then you must have known he was outside, next time I'll just let the car hit him......" She Thankfully didn't talk to me the rest of the night. I brought Ethan inside 2 more times.......

The same Aunt has a daughter who is a mean little cuss named Emma. She doesn't watch her either. She pushed down Clint's cousin's little girl, Camryn who is 2, outside on the concrete portch. I picked her up, told Darla (Camryn's mom) what happened. She told Teresa if her daughter does that again to ANY kids on this property, she will bust her ass. Teresa said"my daughter is well behaved, and doesn't do things like that. If you touch my child, I will bust your ass. We don't spank our kids" About 10 min later, Emma was crying, Darla was smiling, and Teresa never even noticed, because she doesn't soothe the kids when they cry either.........She adopted BOTH of the kids, she should never have been allowed to. Clint spanked her 3 times, and that was for pushing OUR kids only!

My step mother in law, yet again. We were making our plates, so she held Addison for me. She was standing right next to me, grabbed macaroni and cheese and proceded to stick a piece of it into Addison's mouth. WTF?? I am RIGHT THERE!! I said, "DON'T GIVE HER THAT! wE DON'T FEED HER STUFF LIKE THAT!" It is Dairy! Babies are not supposed to have that until they are at least 9-12 months old! How the eff do I know if she is allergic or not yet, and her dumb ass shoves it in her mouth, it wasn't like I was no where to be found to ASK me if she could give it to her!!!

The funeral I went to. It sucked that my Brother in law Terrence lost his mother right before a holiday, hell it sucks that she dies at all... I am however glad that I was opened to a new experience. I have never been to a predominantly black church. I was very moved, and it seemed that the preacher had a different way to preach. I was surprised ALOT durring the celebration of life. Every other funeral I have been to I cried and so did every one else, this one everyone sang, danced, and was smiling! The only time anyone cried was at the end durring the viewing and when they wheel the casket down throught the church to put her in the hurse. I want to go that way, no crying and everyone smiling.

My uncle Freddie's new fiance, Norma. The first time I meet her, and she is telling my kids what to do, and telling me how to raise them. Hell you could have waited until the 2nd time I meet you for that. First impressions are a BITCH!

Norma invites my grandmother to the ballet. She says it is on the 8th of December. I just got done saying to everyone that Kaylie's 5th birthday party is on the 8th. So I reminded nana about Kaylie's party, and Norma says, "well her real birthday is on the 6th so she will just be missing the party" UH, HELLO!! That is the only thing the child cares about is her Hanah Montana Party!!! She is 5 for Goodness Sakes! Boy did this lady get off on the wrong foot with me.....even Kaylie told me not to invite Norma to her party, but that Uncle Freddie can come. Funny what kids see, huh.

 I am comming ot the conclusion that everyone else is stupid except for me, and maybe a few of you of course..........

Overall, it was a great holiday weekend.....remember this just said what sucked about it, there was ALOT of great stuff too. You know, Mom had got the kids on Friday so we could go to the funeral, and so we had the house to ourselves until Saturday night! Nope not pregnant, yep good birth control!
This is a normal holiday season with the Nolan clan, some one is always beating some one elses kids.

Dawn, No one fell out, but I kept thinking about DAG (David Allen Greer) from In living Color Jumping all around the stage, cause this is EXACTLY what the preacher did. I held back the laugh cause it was a funeral, but I smiled like crazy!

Ah, dysfunctional ...

Ah, dysfunctional families! What a blessing! :) Glad you had some good in there, too, Mandy!

Oh, yeah, I've never been to a black funeral, but I have attended church with blacks, and it is the most worshipful experience I've ever experienced with others. Just thought y'all would like to know that! :)
