New Glasses- A Poll

 Posted by HelloAmr got new glasses. His first glasses ever. He isn't sure how he likes them. I decided to step in and ask his vast fanbase, from this blog, how they look. So, what da ya think?I think they look very handsome.
Comments, please. Stoke my modest husbands' not-so-modest-ego!

Bathtub Hijinx

 Posted by HelloWe discovered that baby can get in and out of the bathtub, all by himself. He likes to play in it. Observe the chubby index finger touching the faucet. Totally new territory. If he found out I could put water in it, he would be OUTTA THERE. He hates baths right now, but he matches my bathroom. His Daddy and I give him showers. Maybe this new thing will signal a new acceptance of the bath. I hope so.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty

 Posted by HelloThis is what I come into every morning that I am caring for Ayman. I never actually see him do it, but I am pretty sure the circumstantial evidence is enough to get him convicted in baby court. He has started really exerting control over things, and I think I am in trouble. He is 18 months old. NOT TWO YET. So, I can only assume that things will be getting much, much, worse. So when it is time to get him out of his crib, I go into his room. This is what I find. His bzaza, pillows, blanket and Baby Tad on the floor. He thinks that if all of these things are on the floor he gets to get out of the crib. And why wouldn't he think that? I do take him out of there when I come in and find this, so I guess he is just doing what works. I think I will start picking up the toys and putting them away before I take him out of the crib from now on. Maybe tell him what I am doing so he knows
Yeah, right.
He would only be interested in what I had to say if I was purple, green yellow or red and had a television in my stomach. Teletubbies get his undivided attention. Thank goodness for them though. Gives me time to do things.
Tommorrow I go back to work. I get to work with that one chic that really chaps my hide. Lets see what kind of hijinx ensue shall we? I will keep you all posted.
Thats it, bathtime at Casa de Nasr (or Bait Nasr bil arabi) .
I'm out!

I suck at blogging.

I just haven't wanted to write anything lately. I think that it has to do with he fact that I started working. I know, I started working six months ago. You would think that I would be back in the swing of things by now. I am not. I guess I just don't have the energy.
My job. eeeeh. For the most part I love it. But you know there is always that one person that you have to work with that makes you dread going there. I will not name the person at my place of employment that makes me feel this way. Let's just say I am on my last nerve because of her. So, since this is my blog I will vent about it. Click away now if you don't want to hear my petty bitchery.
this young lady we will call sandy, makes me nutty. I think she may be on speed but I am not sure. That is a big accusation to make about someone. Her behavior is so erratic though. Her responses are not proportional. She calls in sick a lot. Case in point, last night. I work the NOC shift at a local hospital. We start at 9 pm. Last night at 9pm she was not there. There was no posting that she was sick. I called the switchboard operator, to see if this young lady called in sick and there was no sick call there either. Mind you if you are calling in sick you have to call the switchboard and let them know, they fill out a paper and it is recorded with Human resources. This was not done. We call her at home. She answers the phone. She tells us (my co worker and I ) that her daughter is VERY SICK. OK, this is a load of crap. She had tried to get someone to switch this day off with her, but no one would. She straight called in sick to go out to dinner. Now, this would not be so bad if we were fully staffed. We are not. So that left two people drawing blood for an entire hospital. We were busy. Sandy regularly calls in sick, or late with excuses like, " I can't find a parking space" WHAT? HELLO, everyone else finds one just great. And when her coworkers are to pissed off to talk to her she goes blabbing to everyone in the hospital how terrible we all are to her. People from other departments are asking me why we treat her so poorly. Nurses tell her they want to write us up, because of this treatment (as if). POOR sandy, what a martyr. GIVE ME A FREAKIN' BREAK. For a grown woman, with two children, she acts like she has no brains. I think she may not. And,to top it all off, she is bossy. But don't tell her that. She doesn't believe it. She can tell you to do something, which she has no authority to do, and you can point that fact out to her and she gets seriously defensive. "I am not bossing anyone around" well she sure fooled me.
Anyway. It is late, I am tired and I think I just wasted five minutes of my life and my blog on some dumb b$*@h I wouldn't throw water on if she was on fire. (Yes, I know what the real euphemism is, but I have to keep this somewhat nice, my family in Egypt reads this sometimes) So that is life. Or as my husband says, "there will always be a Sandy."

OK, I guess I have to do this too.

I know everyone is blogging about the Jackson Verdict today and yesterday. Now I suppose I will do the same.
The dude was not found innocent. He was found not guilty. BIG DIFFERENCE. I totally hope that his trial does ruin his career and make him totally broke. I hope he has to sell his Beatles catalog. He doesn't deserve to OWN it. I am still in shock about the verdicts. I shouldn't be. If you have the cash you get off. That is it. OJ Robert Blake, MJx2.
Hello? Can people really, possibly think that sleeping with children, who are not your own, for a year, is appropriate? Is his view on the world so skewed? You bet it is. No one reins this guy in. It is just yes, yes, yes in Michaels world. The guy is a joke.

A bulletproof JOKE, and not a funny one either.
