infomercial kids

Does your closet look like this?

i have an abnormal child, and i dont mean in the ways of SB. Cause really saylor is just unique in every way. There are few typical things about her. She is obsessed with infomercial products. its not as though she watches a lot of infomercials either. she sees a product once and cant let go of the idea of its simple brilliance. this child wanted this for xmas and nothing else ...

and she was happy and thrilled with this cheap but useful product.

yesterday was a day of wonder for me. I dont see her the way the rest of the world sees her. I am her mom. I am also with her everyday so ... its kind of like you dont see your own grow, i see her and us but maybe not always for what she is or we are. I admit i take for granted this amazing blessing that is in my life every moment. I probably do that too often with all my kids. We had a really busy day and she was with me most of the day as we ran from place to place and then snuck in a skiing lesson at snowbird (which mind you was the best lesson yet, the strongest skiing yet, the most runs in an hour yet) down to last minutes before i went to sleep i could feel the unique angel that she is a bit stronger then on any given normal day.

she proclaimed last night that she discovered what she wants for her bday (earlier in the day she proclaimed what she wanted to do for her bday which was go fishing ... go figure) so she showed me her closet and said "does your closet look like this? you know how i have waaaay to many clothes? well there are these hanger things (and she starts drawing in the air with her hands to create visual effect) that make your closet look so much better ... i want those!"

the wonder hanger for the wonder kid i guess. whatever makes her happy. i am grateful she doesnt want an expensive wasteful toy! and she does share a closet with her sister and its a little tight on space.

She was cuddling with me in bed last night. and i was just taking it all in. for me even her smell, her skin and how it feels is unusual. dream like. so different. so special. I think at moments it looks and feels like any other kids and i am tempted to say that all moms feels this way about their own children some times, but then i realize i have these moments with storie and stock but they arent exactly like this. she is so angelic, so unexplainable sometimes.

No. Way.

I think our 6 year olds must be kindred spirits. Jonah has been obsessed with infomercial products for years now. Obsessed. He got the pancake puff pan for his birthday and has been dying to get his hands on a sonic scrubber...whatever that is. Can you imagine the conversations they'd have during a typical game of "store"?
Too funny.

I love infomercials and their products. In fact I have tried out way too many of them. People always make fun of me, but then they want to know how everything works. I think secretly most people want to try the stuff but are too embarrassed. I love it! :-)

That is hilarious! Nothing Saylor says surprises me the least bit. She must have gotten the O'Brien genes because Aaron is always wanting to order from those things too (okay, I am probably just as guilty). Sweet little Saylor. I was just lauging with myself the other day thinking about her ear piercing :). love your guts.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

My younger brother (he's Saylor's age) is also obsessed with infomercial products. His favorite is the Snuggie, and he also likes Wonder Hanger and Touch N' Brush. I guess it's a first grade thing.

One of the factors that can influence the outcome of your program is that many bookmakers set maximum stake limits which can keep you from placing your full wager, so make sure that there in no max limit with any of the bookies that you are dealing with.

Still, there are tons of bettors looking through rose colored glasses for the holy grail of betting systems that will let them make money without risking any. Well, there is a way to do that and it is called work! Gambling is called gambling for a reason, it’s risky. Let’s take a look at some sports betting systems.

Switching a service located outside of the United States it not hard to do. In fact it is quite easy since there are many quality services to choose from. The most difficult thing that you will need to do is find the one that best suits your needs.

The important thing to note here is that neither of the above approaches is "systemised", although those in the first group believe that they are limiting losses while increasing their winning chances. But what the majority in that first group generally do not take proper account of is how the Bookies have fixed the odds to ensure that they, the Bookies, will come out on top in the long run. What this means is that if you only bet on "favourites" you will eventually lose all your money, although it is true that you will enjoy a much longer period of betting before you kiss your last buck goodbye!

My final selection, and surely few will question this one, is a certain Dennis Law. 'The King' or the 'Lawman' as he was affectionately known played for Manchester United between 1962 and 1973. During that time he played for United a total of 409 times, scoring an impressive 237 goals. Law won European Footballer of the year in 1965, during a season in which he top-scored for Manchester Utd with 28 and helped them to win their first league title since Munich.. [url=]man utd vs[/url] To be perfectly honest, Manchester United has the kind of rich and accomplished sports history that can make any native son or daughter of Manchester proud. They have been one of the most successful football clubs in English football history, winners of the FA Premier League/Football League 15 times and the FA Cup 11 times. In addition, Manchester United has also won the League Cup twice, the European Cup twice, the UEFA Cup Winners Cup once, the Intercontinental Cup once and the European Super Cup once. [url=]berbatov[/url] Manchester United Football Club is an English football club that plays in the Premier League. The Red Devils as they are commonly known have more than 300 million world-wide supporters. Meaning that out of every 20 people on earth, one of them will be a Manchester United Fan! Currently managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United are one of the most successful teams in the history of English football having won 21 major titles since he became manager in 1986. During its remarkable history, many distinguished players have run out in the famous Manchester United shirt which can trace its origins back when Manchester United were known as Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football Club.
