Crazy weekend
We are going to have a busy weekend ahead of us. John is taking JE for his end of year boy scout camping tomorrow. He had a t-ball game in the morning, but he hurt his knees this week at school, he will has to pass tomorrow's game. On Sunday, two kids in JE's class and a friend of ours are having birthday parties. JE can only go to two of them. In the middle of two parties, he is going to an award ceremony for his piano annual exam that he had a few weeks ago.

All I can say is that I am glad we finally got a second car last year. It will be insane without it. Did I also mention that I signed up ballet class for our daughter, on a Saturday morning none-the-less? I must be on crack when I did that.

At least I maintained my cool
The day before as I was putting clothes in the dryer, I heard my daughter calling out help. I went into the dinning room, saw her stuck between the bottom bar of back of the chair. I tried to move her forward and back, but couldn't get her unstuck.

I decided to screw it and ruin the chair. I was sawing away the bar and calling John the same time (on speaker). But he hung up on me and called 911 for me. Within one minute, I got a call from the emergency service and heard sirens blasting around the house. The polices, firemen, and paramedics showed up. The police ended up cutting the cushion part of chair and freed her. There was no way I could do that. I cut myself while cutting bread, I would not trust myself with a knife that close to my daughter's face.

She stopped crying when help arrived. She was totally fine afterwards. But I was a bit traumatized after that.

You know what is really funny? She pooped while being stuck in the chair. Good thing I changed her before the rescue party arrived.

PS: Everyone that I have told about this incident all asked me if I have taken a picture of my daughter while being trapped in the chair, my MIL included. You are all butch of sadist. :) But secretly I did wish I have done it. It will be very good blackmail material when her boyfriend comes to see us for the first time. But you know, like, I couldn't really do it with the rescue crews there. They probably would have called child service on me.

There is a huge fire going on at Griffith Park, it is about 30 minutes away from our home. I can smell the smoke, even though all the windows and doors are closed.

PS: Why oh why did I sign up to make brownies for my kid's school open house tonight?


hmm ribs
The past Saturday we went to annual work picnic for my husband's. It was also a March of Dime walk. John has always participated in it until this year, one year he even got second place for raising money.

We had lots of fun, especially the kids. There were tons of food, tons of games, the highlight was near the end that for $5/two pies (the money goes to March of Dimes), you got to throw pies full of whip cream to the two big bosses.
