BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!

It’s Friday, my Skittles! That means it’s time for BYOC. Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

1. Whether you’re a parent or not….what do you think the appropriate age is to talk to a child about “the birds and the bees”?

• I’m selfishly asking this because this week “the letter” came home. You know the one. The one that says a nurse will be coming onsite to talk to my child about sex and periods and genitals and puberty.

• Watermelon is 11 and in 5th grade. It’s one of those things I knew would come but I never imagined it’d feel this weird when it did. Weird like I still feel too young to have a kid old enough to talk to this stuff about!

2. What’s the color scheme in your bedroom?

Sage blue, chocolate brown and cream with a little safari décor in it.

3. What kind of shampoo and conditioner do you use on your hair?

• Again, another selfish question. I’m about out of my shampoo and am looking for a new kind. I like to change it up and have never loved one kind enough to stay loyal to it. I’ve been researching Wen products since my bestie mentioned them…does anyone use those?

I currently am finishing up some morrocan/ginger oil shampoo. Can’t even remember the brand.

4. And since it’s nearly summer time…do you paint your own toes, go some place for pedicures or not paint your toes at all? What’s your fave toe color?

I wear flip flops and sandals to work constantly so my toes are definitely painted. 90% of the time I do my own and even paint fun designs on them. 10% of the time I splurge and find the time and money to go get a pedicure.

I use colors on my toes I would never use on my nails. Like bright blues, greens or even reds. I don’t do red on my nails or purples, blues or greens so I LOVE to use them on my toes. My fave is still a french on both nails and toes.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week!

This week was good. I have stayed within my points range and have continued to work out. Last night I did 30 second sprints up to 6.2mph. First time in a while so I took it slow. It feels good to get back into regular workouts and I’m eating so much healthier on Weight Watchers. Still fighting some pretty major fatigue from my migraine meds BUT I’m beginning to get more sleep and haven’t had a migraine in a while. YAY!

Nothing to do this weekend except clean. Oh joy.

Seriously. Someone just kill me now.

Tootles Skittles. Have a gumdrop farting, unicorn dancing, Care Bear cloud kind of weekend.

I use wen and I love it. However, I still need to wash my hair once a week with regular shampoo. Wen is a conditioning cleanser but after a few uses, my hair gets to heavy and a good old fashioned shampoo does the trick!

Suave has a new shampoo with keratin that I want to try also. I will let you know!

I'm cleaning out my garage this weekend so I'll be a fellow warrior of the cleaning! :)

Jen said...

I love Bumble and Bumble products for my hair.. a bit pricey but it lasts a while!! They have pretty much every solution for every type of hair!
I love me some pedis!

Barbara said...

I use WEN too, but like Jacquie said you need to give your hair a good cleansing.. I use BED HEAD.. and one of the aalon products I can't recall.. But I have tried the new Suave Professional line and its pretty decent as well.

I love red nail polish.. Hugs

I always wear colors on my toes that I never wear on my fingers too!

I have to do some cleaning this weekend too...ugh!

I wear red on my toes. They match my SUV. My fingernails stay naked.

Last night I saw a comedian and she reminded me about the movie that we saw in the sixties. It was called "you are becoming a woman" . Only the girls got to see it in grade 6 with our male teacher. My mom told me shit, except go ask my older sister for a pad when the time came. And my Biology book in grade 10 had a chicken on top of another one, which sorta, kinda taught me about sex.

My kids. Well PBS had a great show on when my daughter was 10. My 8 yer old son was mesmerized. I think they had sex Ed in school--I think there was something about putting condoms on bananas but I was prett open and just told it like it is.

Ha ha! Let the fun of having kids nearing puberty begin!

I'm the same way. I'll do colors on my toes that I won't do on my nails. In fact I never do color on my nails. For some reason I hate my fingers b/c I feel they look chubby so I don't like drawing attention to them. I just get the french manicure on them. For birds and bees talk I use a book that is meant for parents to read to their children. It eases the tension!

I am like the others, crazy colors on the toes and if anything on the fingers it is a french. I love a pedi but like you usually end up doing my own. I try to splurge on one a two a year.

I talk about the b and b's with my daughter. She is starting to get the buds of boobies. Makes me feel so old!!! I really hope she is like me and still has a few years to worry about periods!
