children these days...

so the other day I was at a birthday party at the beach, while everyone else went swimming my friend and I went to a small park, while were we on the swings (don't you just loveee swings??)

ok I don't really draw like this, just on Paint
my friend and I on the swings

we saw this group of little kids, and by little I mean like 8...but anyways, they were having this hugeeee debate about the fact that one of the girls owned a phone

this is supposed be them all arguing

and I was like 'Gee big deal they probably gave their kid like a used phone from the 60's or something' then the little kid turns around and she's holding the brand new IPHONE 4G!!! I mean seriously, this kid has a better phone than most of the ADULTS I know

really accurate drawing of the phone

so me thinking that this was some sweet innocent kid with some sweet innocent friends, call out to them 'HEY I LIKE YOUR PHONE' and the sweet angelic little child turns around, looks me up and down, sneers then says 'It's and iPhone 4G' and stalks off, and her posse behind her go 'yeaaah *rubs noses* it's a 4G' and saunter off into their little corner and put their little hands over their little mouths and make little snide remarks...

the clique
my friend and I are sitting there open mouthed, gaping at these 8 year olds who are acting like 18 year olds!

these pictures are like the ones you draw in grade one, where your parents look at them and are like
'oh great work' and you find them 10 years later at
the back of a shoe cupboard
im just joking :p

In our day they would have been slapped....not really, just kidding!!!

But yeah, this has me thinking more and more about how our world is turning out to be, the fact that little kids are being given expensive gifts and phones like that is astounding!

This year a bunch of kids from the Primary school are coming up to the high school (personally I don't understand how they can start high school, most of them are 11)
and apparently, they all got razors for Christmas! RAZORS AT 11! one of them even got her eyebrows waxed professionally, a few of them got highlights and layers, and most of them went out and bought a brand new wardrobe...

It's like a GINORMOUS version of The Pretty Committee...honestly I'm gonna go back the high school one day and find 11 year old Paris Hilton minions running around the place...

argh I know it sounds like I'm ranting (which I am) but it's just really sad that little kids are being forced to grow up to quickly, kids are supposed to be innocent to these kinds of's like they were robbed of their childhood innocence :(

But anyways

My dog got a shave!!! She was all knotty but fluffy, but now that it's (finally) sunny, we thought we'd give her a summer do!

this was here BEFORE the Mighty Shave

this was her HIDING after the Mighty Shave

full picture!
she's acting all weird and skittish because of all the fresh air on her skin...


oh aaaand I also tried the Maple Taffy thingo from Madeline and Sophie! NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM
it was delish! Instead of snow I blended up some ice cubes and made something like snow...I poured the maple syrup over it and it all seemed to be working just fine, except for when I had wrapped the toffee around the Popsicle stick it was still kind of gooey, but I was hungry and wanted some sugar so I ate it anyway and it was DELISH, thanks for the recipe!!!!

ok cool, that was fun :) I love blogging

also a big HAPPY 100th POST to Jen!

so I'm checking out, because I have a LOL waiting for me :)

do you guys have lol's? It's like a healthy soft drink...NOM

Oh my ZEUSSSSSS!! (lol I'm so glad you like saying it now!! It makes me so happy!!!) That's just wrong!!! What is wrong with children these days??? I can't believe an 8 year old was so standoff-ish!! I can't believe an 8year old has an iphone!! What are they supposed to do with it?? The same thing is kinda going on with my 6 year old cousin, maybe it's because she has too older sisters who knows, but on Christmas I was asking her about Polly Pockets and evidently it's a thing of the past and why would I think she would like Polly Pockets? I hope all these little kids grow out of this, because I do not remember being like that when I was little.
Your dog is adorable!! Her eyes are so big!!
Thanks for the happy 100th post!!!!!!
