better the second time

Jules —  January 15, 2006

Elaina has decided that the milk jug lid is the best place to save her chewing gum. She can make a single piece last for days! I’m starting to get used to this sight.

Chewing Gum is really gross, chewing gum I hate the most.รขโ‚ฌย Willy Wonka

  1. How funny!!! Your such a good Mom to catch these memories. Each daughter is so unique. This is better then putting ones gum under your kitchen table or later their school desk. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Does your chewing gum lose it’s flavor on the bed post over night? Not mine, that’s where I kept mine at night when I was little. We did’nt have much and I could make mine last for days just like Elaina. Every once in awhile I had to clean my post spot up, it got to sticky ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I guess I’m too picky. Cold, hard gum…Yuck! :(
    But, if that’s what you like, Elaina, you go, girl! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Me too, Deb, once mine has lost the flavor its gone. I never thought of putting it in the frig. though. Good thinkin, Elaina, & what a nice MOM for letting her.

  5. Punky, you used to keep it on the bed post too!!!!! :evil

  6. It does seem to lose some of the charm after a day or so…

    Elaina is so wonderful!

  7. Can I just say that Elaina is my most favoritist 4 year old in the whole world?

  8. I would have to agree with the Willy Wonka quote if the gum in question is left-over gum from the fridge. Better not let her watch Elf anytime soon…would hate to have her find out about his free gum source.

    I love gum until the flavor wears off and then it is so pointless. We at the Anderson house would be willing to take up a collection to the “get Elaina more gum” foundation if it would help, so she doesn’t feel like she has to make it last! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Carl V, :rotfl :rotfl :rotfl

  10. Thanks Carl, but I think we have enough gum. Mom stops by at least once a week between patients and leaves four sticks of gum for the girls. I am not real found of lots of gum. It inevitably ends up in someones hair and I have to remove it!

    Anjelia LOVES chewing gum, but as hard as she tries, she swallows it after a few minutes. When you ask her where it went, she opens her mouth as wide as she can and points at the back of her throat and says, “It fell down!” :rotfl It’s about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen when she does that!

  11. I think we should start taking the gum off the milk and see how big of a ‘gum ball’ we can make. :rotfl

  12. How gross! Sounds like fun!

  13. Good idea James only you should put it out on one of the trees in the yard and see how much of it you can cover…don’t they have gum tree like this somewhere?

  14. Or you could shape the gum wads on the tree trunk into eyes, nose, and mouth….and have your own tree with a face (like your mom’s). I bet you’d have one like no one else!

  15. Cool :cool Debbie!!!!!!!!!

  16. You know when you’re running late on Sunday morning and you know you’re going to be talking to people and you don’t have time to stop and get a fresh pack…

  17. Yeah, you could be racing out to your car, get an urge for some gun, run by your gum tree face and pick the nose….I mean, pick some gum off. hee hee couldn’t resist ๐Ÿ˜‰ :oops

  18. Oops…that should be ” get an urge for GUM” not gun.

  19. Punky, you need to talk to your daughter :puke at least the bed post did’nt sound that bad. :rolleyes

  20. I’m staying out of this one. It’s really getting funny. :rotfl :rotfl :rotfl

    I would like to say that Today my lil Sarah is 4yrs. old and taking ballet lessons and just loves it. She’s like a little bumble bee, just buzzing all over the place.

  21. Yeh!!!! :birthday Sarah, Hope you had a big day. I can’t believe she’s that old. Ballet, I always tried to dance on my toes, putting stuff in my shoes, could’nt do it. :(

  22. Happy Birthday, Sarah! I am sure you look very lovely dancing your ballet. I have a picture of you and your mom on my frig. You are very cute and I am sure you are just as sweet. :love


  23. Now I know what to do when I am desperate to freshen up my breath!

  24. What is it with our kids and gum? I have to hide the gum from Sarah as she never takes it out, just keeps putting more in. Walks around like a cow chewing cud until I notice she has 3 or 4 pieces in her mouth. Gum addiction, never pretty.
    She had a great birthday, had to wait all day for me to get home, we had icecream cake at 8pm last night and opened her gifts. Both of them are playing with their new toys, dolls flying around on a little doggie and kitty soft stuffed animals. Courtusy of Grandma and Aunt Deb. I’m babysitting her new dolly I gave her. Aaron gave her a pink ballet bag for her to carry she tap and ballet shoes in. She is styling now!

  25. Mom:
    I read your post about the old lady.
    You wont be put in a nursing home as long as I am alive.
    Unless of course you start beating me up.
    As much as I owe you I will take care of ya!!!
    As for a rich man, I think they are already taken, gay or non-existent.
    I dont think I will ever find anyone who I could put up with. Maybe there is someone out there but I cant find them driving from School to work or in Wal-Mart.
    Hey why dont Wal-Mart have a singles night????
    Oh well just a thought.
    Sorry Jules this is your blog but I just read an old not Tootsie typed. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  26. I thought it must have been late when you wrote that trish. Hope you had some energy left for work today. Or even better, hope it was your day off. Love ya. :rolleyes

  27. I plead the 5th about putting gum on the bed post, I really don’t remember. I was to young. :angel
