First I'd like to give a shout out to all my nursey friends and fellow bloggers. And to all of those I don't know. It's Nurses Day, and you ROCK! You are some of the hardest working men and women that I have ever known, worked with and beside, and I know that you all work long hard hours and handle a tremendous amount of stress on a daily basis. And I tip my hat to you on this day. Kudos to you for choosing this as your profession. I admire all that you do!
Now, if I may discuss last night's American Idol. It's still so fresh in my mind. While both Allison and Adam felt right at home performing rock songs this week, both Danny and Kris were not cut out to be the rock and roll type. I love them. I do. And they have their own little unique characteristics that make them that much more likeable each time you see them. This week was just a little hard to watch. I will however, give them huge props for their duet. They sung Renegade, and I thought it was awesome! I thought that their voices complimented each other very nicely.
As for Adams performance, he brought down the house. He was spot on. But then again, when is he not? I was not at all crazy about his too small fitting pants. But hey, who am I to say what rock star types should be wearing? I'm just a mommy blogger slightly out of touch with the US stuck in some Chilean apartment only a thousand miles away. Whatever. It's his gig.
Young Allison, well the girls got pipes. And no matter what happens, she is going to have a very bright future in front of her. I didn't like her song Cry Baby so much, but that's just my personal preference. She sang it well. I just didn't like the song. The duet between her and Adam was fantastic. Those two together were a joy to hear. Two screamers. Loved it.
Now having said all of that, I'm still in the tank for Danny. I cringed at his performance of Dream On. I did. If truth be told. But that doesn't mean that I'm off his team. My dh even had some derogatory comments about him. But I think he's just jealous because I couldn't take my eyes off of him. Whatev. He looked good. And I agree with the judges. Though rock is not his thing, I give him high fives for even attempting to pull that off in front of the audience that he had. Oh and Slash? He SUCKED. I don't care that he's a great guitar player. I can appreciate that fact. Trust me, I do. Been there. It's just that as a mentor? Come on, NO! Once again, I reiterate, he SUCKED. So there. That's my opinion, in a nutshell.
Now on to my regularly scheduled day. I'm playing preschool in my house every day. I'll have to take pictures of the kids play room once the table I ordered arrives. It's going to be really cute. Every day I am doing different things with the kids and basically I'm trying to imitate the things that they do in preschool/daycare. Complete with naps, because napping is the best part of my day. Peace and quiet.
And on a an extremely ecstatic note, my daughter Alexa who is 2 years and 7 months old, has started to poop on the potty. Regularly. I wouldn't say she's potty trained yet, but this makes me happier than you might expect. You see, Eddie, who just turned 4, just recently became potty trained. So yes, her success now, is leaving me feeling rather happy.
