Tidbits From My Day

  • Sister, singing: "Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, like a butter dream."
  • Excerpts from Soultalk: "When you try to explain the unexplainable in an effort to control the uncontrollable, every thought is silly. And every emotion is confused and unstable." "Most people go through their entire life never speaking words to another human being that come out of what is deepest within them, and most people never hear words that reach all the way into the deep place we call the soul."
  • Sister, again singing, while making her bed: "We're not gonna take it. No! We ain't gonna take it! We're not gonna take it anymore!" Yes, that is a song by Twisted Sister. Let me just say that her father has taken her music appreciation lessons to a new level.
  • Sister, not singing this time: "Mommy, do you know I love you?" Oh, man. Does it get any better than that?
  • Singing Since U Been Gone with my kids and showing them the fine art of Hairbrush Mike Karioke.
  • Sugar and water make a sticky paste. I discovered this after giving Sister water for her little tea pot and sugar for the little sugar bowl.
  • I figured out that if I don't feed Baby and Sister before we go to Brother's soccer practice, I can feed them while we are there and it keeps them occupied for at least half an hour.
  • We saw a dog playing soccer at the soccer fields tonight. No lie.
  • Kids don't want to go to bed at 8:00 p.m. when it's barely dark. #@*# that Daylight Savings Time!!!

Yeah, my son gave the same argument as we got home from church Sunday night. He insisted it couldn't be bedtime, pointed to the sky and thought he had just won the argument.

GOT to love a gal who sings Twisted Sister! :-)

Singing Twisted Sister...that is too funny! I also liked the realization of feeding at the soccer games rather than before and having entertainment...Smart Woman!

I couldn't help giggling at the "#@*# that Daylight Savings Time!!!" part. And who wouldn't want a butter dream? You and yours are so funny.

amen to discarding daylight savings time! mine decided convienently to stay hyper for an extra half hour at night, moving a regular bedtime of 7:30 to 8:00. Fine. THEN the next day here comes the "savings," transforming our lovely 7:30 to freakin' 9:00pm. GRRRRR
