Other Ways I'm Getting Old

Please tell me you can't hear these either: Stealth Ringtones





It's possible that it's because I'm unfamiliar with them - Jay Jay and his crew are only on on early weekend mornings here, so I've only seen them while it's still dark out and I'm still groggy. But something about their fleshy faces being sucked onto the fronts of planes really creeps me out. Thanks to Corndog for reminding me.

A. turned 4 on Wednesday. We didn't make a big deal out of it because his party's not until Sunday. He told me yesterday, "Mama, what my body really wants is to open another present."

Unfortunately, I woke up this morning with a cold and thought, "No. No no no no, I can't be sick. We're having 10 kids and their parents over on Sunday. I cannot be sick." Guess what? I'm sick. In fact, it's not even 8:30pm and I'm going to bed. G'nite.

OH. MY. GOD.

I can't hear them at all but my 14 year old daughter can hear them well - from across the room. She said that some of them were awful and gave her a headache. That statement gave me a headache.

Jay Jay always creeped me out. They used to be more primitive and Thomas-like. Thomas never bothered me but Jay Jay and his pals...

My then 1 or 2 year old son was creeped out too. He wouldn't watch the show.

Except for the part about A. probably not being scared of Jay Jay, I swear Ethan and A. are the same kid. I love the things he says.

My sympathies are with you regarding Sunday's plans and your illness. We've all been there and we still don't look back and laugh.

I can totally hear the covert ops and the bug, but the cricket etc are blanks. Strange how that works! See ya later today!
We'll have to be careful - we have to stay healthy! Sucks to be forced to stay healthy!!!

I can hear all of them, but they make me feel ill/wrong/odd because the sounds are so abnormal and annoying.

I hope you felt better for the birthday party. I too was sick for the fourth birthday party, but it was easy & more convenient to reschedule for us.
