From People...Christina Aguilera on the Ellen show. I heart Ellen. Watch the video its a good chuckle.

This week's PEOPLE cover subject Christina Aguilera is happy to chat about motherhood – every aspect of her new role, in fact. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show scheduled to air Wednesday, the talk-show host playfully asks the pop star – who sported a low-cut shirt – "You look great. One question: Are you nursing?"

A blushing Aguilera responded: "I guess it's a little obvious," and DeGeneres quipped back, "It's going to be a healthy baby boy." (Watch the clip here.)

Aguilera, 27, did not demure when talked turned to her son's Bris. "We are not a very conservative couple," she told DeGeneres. "For decorations we put up penis balloons all over the place. It was really fun, it was really great." A stunned Ellen replied: "Really, they have penis balloons in a shop ... you can just buy them?"

Just Don't

If you are going to a playgroup/indoor free gym, can you kindly NOT:

..ignore the no food/drink signs and let your toddler run around with a bottle, not only hanging out of his face while running, but also leaving a heave-worthy milk-trail all over the toys and climbers wherever he goes. the other parent who ignored the same sign and give your kid a sucker, and let them race full tilt around the gym as well as zoom around on peddle cars, while the rest of us try to explain to our children loudly that there is NO FOOD ALLOWED and even if there were, there is no way in hell you run around with a sucker in your mouth

....ignore the fact that my son came up to you, asked oh-so heart-meltingly politely if he could have a turn with a car when your son was done, tell him "yah, when he's done" then let your child sit in it for 25 minutes. Asshole. Don't make my ass come over there and teach you how to share . Cause bitch, it will hurt.

....let your child keep crashing his pedal tractor into my kids, over...and over...and over....while I keep loudly telling my own son "no crashing please honey" Are you that stupid that you can't take a hint?

Ok that's done. Deep breath. Holy crap, what a morning. I am usually very tolerant of the different ways that people parent, tho of course, I am always right ;) but I just couldn't take it today! Too much. Those are literally only the ones that I can remember, I spent the whole 2 hours stressed out, watching my kids like a hawk waiting to see who's child was going to run them over, who's child was going to hit, if that kids was going to impale his freaking throat with a sucker stick... another deep breath.

I did, however, meet and talk to another mom who was there for the first time and told her to come back, that there's a few of us who go every Friday and we're kinda awesome. LMAO! She had mentioned she had a hard time getting to know people, and that everytime she tried talking to women at playdates they sorta mumbled an answer back and didn't converse. Nice! I also referred her to a website that I don't frequent anymore and said she could probably find playdates etc in her area of Clareview. I didn't go into the kwality of people there (like my ghetto quality with a k?) all present company who read my blog excluded, of course ;)

OOkkkk rant over. Holy stressed out mama this week. I think I need to go in to work tomorrow and take a break!

My Mad Little Scientist

I DO watch my kids, I really, truly do. I have no idea how Mr K managed to do this, I know that the margarine was on the counter, the rolling pin was in the living room because The Princess wanted to play with it.

I just walked by the table, and you know how you catch something out of the corner of your eye? Well the table was supposed to be I did one of those sloooooowly turn...sloooowly peek at what's on the table....and breathed a sigh of relief. Wasn't as bad as I thought.

What made me laugh is he was smart enough to get a tea towel and lay it down, so he could, well, I guess, roll the margarine out neatly?

It was either a poltergeist or Mr K, and upon asking him, he informed me that it was his experiment.

I don't know WHAT'S up with these experiments, I am sure its my fault somehow..we did the good old baking soda and vinegar "My-First-Experiment" experiment, then tried it with water, etc, to see which react and which don't. That was before Christmas. And now he's just experimenting with anything that he gets his hands on, whether I see the sense or not. (usually not, I don't get it, WHY would you roll margarine???)

I STILL don't know where I was when he did this!! I lost time......I have a small bump on the back of my neck....and just a new general cosmic awareness....

Ah my mad he makes me laugh....and keeps me on my toes. Er, when I am around to parent, that is.

Long Weekend

Well, that's what happens when I get distracted with a long weekend, no blogging. Not that its a bad thing, I had a fantastic weekend! FAN-TASTIC. On Sunday Jen, who was up from Airdrie, and her mom Phyllis came and picked Mr K and I up, and we went shopping at West Ed. And I must have been crazy but I enjoyed myself. Like really had a good time.

Now I know for a fact a huge part is that Mr K is the most awesomest kid ever for shopping, he walked the entire mall for hours with us, held hands with Jens daughter and walked ever so nicely, didn't stray from me, we had lunch, it was great. He impressed Phyllis with how well he shopped, she was amazed, but then I reminded her that I was punished enough with the one I left at home with Mike. My karma came, baby, with The Princess. And that's ok. One day, she too will like shopping with her Momma. However, I forsee lots of arguments over clothes. I only pray she wants to wear combat boots because usually that means the matching clothes actually cover her body.....

I found a birthday present for the next birthday coming up, and a space book that Mr K just can't put down. I looked at all sorts of purses (yes, I have this purse fetish lately) and found the one I want. When you see me and my new purse, you will know that I hit a weight-loss goal that I am rewarding myself for LOL. We looked through all the kids stores, and I was horrified by the clothes in Old Navy, good thing I don't shop there. The "safari" theme this year is just grotesque for women, has anyone seen it? The colors are disgusting, all tans in awful jumpers that look like tour guide outfits, and that awful dull red color that doesn't look good on ANYONE. The whole store was dull and boring. The only good thing is the animal prints, I loooove me some animal prints!

I digress, I am not writing a fashion blog LOL. But I do need clothes so desperately. I did a Goodwill cleanse and I have NO clothes, I got rid of all my maternity wear, all the clothes that are too big now (not a hardship, not complaining here) and my closet is bare to the bones. I have a lot of dress shirts which saved my ass for work this last week, they matched my one pair of black dress pants and one skirt, but everything else is t-shirts and I have 3 pairs of jeans. Those I scored at the Goodwill lol...its a and out...

But after a while everyone else decided to come to the mall, and it was the busiest I have ever seen it, talk about insane! We quickly left at that point.

The rest of the weekend has really, appropriately, been family time. We played and played outside, did lots of reading, played Wii, did some shopping all together, and it was just so relaxing and nice.

Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend!
