So, KaBean really thinks it is the 90's. She is brining back the "Not". As in, wow mom this chicken is super yummy. NOT! Only she says it like people say "Sure enough!"
"Hey Bean, wanna brush your teeth?"
"Ummm... Sure not."
Like its one word- surenot. Cracks me up! She is really starting to open up to me, well family in general, and say new things. I can see it on her face when she is trying out a new word. When she wants to tell me about something new or repeating something from Angelina Ballerina. Lately she has been trying to pronounce things more like she hears in her shows, both of which come out of the UK. So she decided to call her new doll Molly Monstah. She tries other words like Feather, Helicopter (this is probably the funniest), Danger and Car. all pronounced with this awesome flat ah sound at the end. but the way it comes out after the helikoptah. hahahhaaa so funny!
So, here is my thank you note to the state.
Dear State of California-
Thanks for dinner. My kids and I really appreciate the wonder full food you bought us. (Really, I'm really glad that the FoodStamp program in this state allows for organic food.)
But I had a really shitty time. You made me feel a little bit like slime because my man works and does the best he can and NO I do not want to sue him for child support. Like I was some half person for stepping up and admitting that my family needs your help. I mean sure, you were nice in that sort of generic-average friendly office worker ways. But thru our whole first date you looked at me like I didn't deserve to walk even behind and to the left of you. But go ahead, give the crazy crack head lady that hangs out at the recycling center her Cash Aid, I'll sit here and brainstorm what she does with it. I really loved the way you said things. Like "FAILURE TO COOPERATE" and "RIGHTS" like it is some dirty word.
So, honestly, thanks for the help. But maybe next time, after you screw me for personal information how about leaving a flower with the money.
The World's Worst Homemaker
Now to the tax payers- Thank you. I don't know if anyone has ever said this to those taxpayers reading this. Thank You. I am so grateful that we have been able to receive help in this bumpy moment in our lives. I wanted you to know that "those enablement programs" do really help real people who have been effected by the economy. We are really out there. And we really really appreciate the help.
