Our 2-year-old babysitting friend keeps talking about “Sleeping Booty” and it’s so hard to not fall over laughing. Ellie, on the other hand, doesn’t think it’s funny at all and keeps trying to correct her. It’s not working out so well.
I’m getting really excited for Girl Scout camp next month!
I love the book fair at the girls’ school. I love that each kid takes home a free book, whether or not they actually buy anything. I love that Ellie couldn’t wait to spend her $5 from grandma on a book. I love my friend Erica for putting the whole thing together. What I don’t love is all the non-book junk offered at the book fair. Thank you, Scholastic, for making me the bad guy for insisting that my children purchase actual book-type things, even though it’s their own money, instead of a $5 PDA (how long before it fell apart or died, and guesses?) and a little tiny stuffed dog in a bag (as if we don't already have several tiny little dogs which came in bags.)
Can you guess which girl wanted the PDA and which one wanted the dog?
Today, in addition to the usual laundry, I get to wash (and then iron) over 25 yards of fabric. This should be fun.
Haiku of the day:
The smell of soil
Makes me feel I could grow things
Or hide dead bodies.
(I didn’t write it, but it makes me laugh.)
Thinking of getting an iPad? Then you definitely need this product. No doubt about it.
I feel like I've been neglecting my blog lately. Life is busy.
From the “things I shouldn’t have to tell them to stop doing” category: don’t sing “Hap-py Birth-day Mister Pres-i-dent” Marilyn Monroe-style in front of your kids. Just take my word on this one.
Ellie got in bed with me at 5:30 this morning and wiggled and whispered and loved on me until she finally fell back to sleep, about two seconds before I had to get up. I just keep reminding myself how much I love her.
Carrie should not have posted that video on her blog. Now I'm all weepy. (But it's a good weepy!)
There are almost no Girl Scout cookies left in my house.
Everyone is someone else’s weirdo. Am I yours?
