Just Because it's FRIDAY!!

First I want to say "THANK YOU" to everyone that has helped me this month with the BIG blog contest that I've entered.  Secondly, I want to say "THANK YOU" to the tag police that have clearly decided that I don't have the support from my wonderful friends and fans!  

Third...for most of my friends this was the first week back at school for the kiddos.  Did you survive the week?? Lemme know, if you want! 

And last but not least because I'm in a SNARKY mood because I have been seriously IRKED by said tag police I'm going to have a giveaway.  Soooooo...here's how it's gonna go.

1. Because of the above situation, I've done some serious cleaning of my FB fan page!
Now, in case I deleted you BY ACCIDENT please feel free to "like" my page again for this giveaway.  

2.  You MUST post on my wall that you're a fan, either new or old and leave the link in the form below.  If, by some weird circumstance you're unable to comment on my wall, please email me. (remember I am TheMarciFactor and things do go all sorts of crazy just by being associated with me) 

3. Hope you get the lucky email!  And, depending on my mood (it is the first week of school after all) I may or may not give away more prizes for this giveaway!  Input SNARKYNESS!!!

I didn't want to do any giveaways during said blog contest because I did NOT want any confusion as to me offering this giveaway, you DO NOT have to do anything other than the 3 items above.  This is not associated with any "contest" of any sort, and this is just because I'm a smartalec SNARKY person!! 
Yeah Yeah, I know...you guys LOVE me! LOL.

Pat yourselves on the back!! You've survived the first week of back-to-school!!!!

Yearly Back To School Eye Exams

Ever since Monster started showing the signs of Strabismus, I've paid special attention to his eyes.  Not to mention, since DH and I both wear glasses, we want to make sure his eyes are taken care of.  
Sooooo...on Friday we all had our annual eye exam at Angelina Eye Center.  Now, I have to say that I LOVE
going to them because of the care they have taken with our eyes.  We always have Dr. Robinson check our eyes, and he is an excellent eye doctor.
When Monster first started showing the signs of Strabismus, I was worried about finding a doctor to check his eyes since he was so young, but that wasn't a problem for Dr. Robinson.  And Monster got his first pair of glasses at around 6 months old.  



We caught it at such a young age, that after about another 6 months, when we had his eyes checked, he didn't need them anymore.  

So, what's new with our eyes this year?  Well, Dr. Robinson said that mommy's left eye is "lazy" and that's the reason I need the prescription for the left eye.  And of course, there's the usual TheMarciFactor, with one eye nearsighted and one eye farsighted.  (YES people that is my true prescription, I have a positive in one eye and negative in the other eye...makes all doctors do a double take to make sure they read it right!) Daddy's eyes are much worse because of his medicine.  At first, Dr. Robinson told DH to get checked for diabetes because of the drastic change in his prescription, and then realized that one of the medicines causes the change, sooooo...we're still going to get him checked for diabetes just to be safe.  
And, here is the pic of Monster getting his eyes checked by the GREAT Dr. Robinson!



You can tell he was getting tired towards the end of his exam, and that's the reason daddy is holding him!

Daddy and Monster Language And New Tag

Since I don't have a good relationship with my parents, I strongly encourage Monster to be with his daddy, especially after what his daughters did.  So, I love to watch the Daddy and Monster communication that goes on between those two.  There's that special bond that can only be between a father and son!

This is one of my favorite examples of what I mean.

Daddy has been staying late at school for extra tutoring in that dreaded ALGEBRA. So, yesterday, when I expected just daddy home so that we could get Monster, they both come in the door.  Monster goes about doing his playing and goes to his room, but Daddy calls him back into the kitchen with this:
"Monster, you wanna blah blah blah"
YES!!!
You read that right...blah blah blah!!!

There's a special communication between them.  Instead of Monster asking "what did you say?", he just came in yelling "yes".

Now, me being mommy...I have no clue what all that was about!!! But, apparently Monster did!  And they do it quite often.

So, I would like to know...in your family, is there a special language between daddy and kiddo? 

Just wondering if we're semi-normal or totally off the charts crazy!

Also, please remember to tag and share my color swatch from Coach!!! I would really appreciate it!
