What the hey...

We just got home from baby WT's 18 mo check up at the doctor... He is only in the 3rd percentile on weight and the 7th percentile on height but his head circumference is in the 95th percentile... And as his big bro RT says he is "PRECIOUS"... but the doc just says he is "petite" like his mom (LOL - I think she was mocking me and I almost hit her) (Seriously) (NO SERIOUSLY)... So 4 shots for WT, 3 shots for HMac, and a flu-mist for RT and we were OUT... Few tears from any of them. HMac said it hurt so bad, but all he could do was laugh uncontrollably...

Note of interest: Ohio State fans are some of the most dedicated fans in the entire world... I am not saying that is a good thing or a bad thing but being an "outsider", and by that I mean not being born in the great state of Oh-io, it is something that is super hard for me to comprehend... I think children here have no choice other than to be Ohio State fans... Their parents do not let them choose a favorite team when they are old enough to make that decision, rather they burn the Ohio State fight song into their brains by repeating it like a lullaby or a favorite book... It is the most odd thing I have ever seen... Case in point - a little boy in the waiting room at the doctor's office was screaming at the top of his lungs, "Ohio State rocks - Penn State sucks!".... I mean screaming, very very loudly... He could have only been like 5 at the oldest, he couldn't have come up with that on his own, someone older like a responsible adult had to teach him that... I have no problem with his statement other than the fact there were small children present and he was screaming the word "SUCKS!"... I am just burning mad by the time he left... His parents didn't even act like it was a big deal.. and well that just SUCKS!!!!

On a much more serious note my best friend's mother-in-law passed this morning... Our sympathy goes out to that family... It was a long battle and now she is at peace... So sadness here but great happiness on the other side... Leave it to me to facebook her a very cynical comment... My way of dealing - sympathetic humor... I am really good at that... Some people really don't like that, some find it hysterical... And as all of my close friends know... I know no other way to be besides hilarious...

OK enough ranting... Any irks on your mind?
