The wayward Eliphant

Some times as a mother you have to deal with some pretty ridiculous things your children throw at you. My four year old son is the king of ridiculous, but even though he over reacts to every little thing, he has the biggest heart that I've ever met.

Meet my son's favorite elephant. His Nana gave it to him for Easter and the two have been inseparable ever since. He sleeps with it, he takes it on long car rides and he holds some pretty interesting conversations with it. Did I mention he named it Elephant. He also named his turtle, Turtle but that's a different story.

Some how Elephant the elephant made his way into little brothers crib around bed time, big mistake. My two year old likes to eat and destroy things to no end. We like to say "Hulk smash" when ever he gets that look on his face of pure destruction. The battle cry is also quit terrifying if you ever come face to face with it.

So, poor little Elephant spent some time with Hulk child and consequently lost one of his eyes. When my older son found his little buddy tears began to stream. He was heart broken and came running to me. "Mommy, Elephant lost his eye. How will he be able to see anything? He will never be able to see again."

He was so sad there was nothing I could do to calm him down. I took Elephant and told my son that I would take care of him for a while and then sent the boy back to bed. A few minutes later I popped into his bedroom to check on him and give him some great news.

Elephant hand grown his eye back! Thanks to a black sharpie marker and quick thinking on mommies part, Elephant was healed and my son wiped the tears from his eyes and curled up with his friend and went to sleep.

This would make an awesome children's book. If only I could find someone to illustrate it, I would totally write it.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
