It’s been a crazy week of ups and downs, but I think that’s just what parenting is, these days. I feel like I have so much to write, but time often creeps away from me in the day to day tasks. Posting to my blog daily is one thing when it’s the only writing I’m doing, but when I have deadlines for jobs that I have contracts with, unfortunately those need to be the priority. Anyway, I’m trying to balance my daily blog writing, and I guess I’m seeing that some days just won’t happen.
But today will! Here are some of the hilarious things overheard in our house this week.
*the Threenager asks me to tell her a story, instead of reading a book before bed. I launch into an elaborate story about her and her new school friends discovering a secret rocket ship in the school playground, flying to the moon to play, then flying home and returning the rocket ship to its secret place in the playground.*
The Fournado, smiling: That was a good one.
Me: I’m glad you liked it, sweetie.
The Fournado: …but it’s just a normal park.
Me: Would you like to have raspberries as a snack at school today?
The Fournado: No thank you, I don’t want hairy food right now.
The Husband: Tomorrow night is the full moon, and it’s called a Super Moon! Wanna know why?
The Fournado: Because it will fly around the sky?
Me: BWAHAHAHAHAHA I LOVE YOU, KIDDO.
Me, sneezing: OW!
The Fournado: What’s wrong, Mama?
Me: Oh, I just hurt my back when I sneezed.
The Fournado: Oh. My back doesn’t hurt when I sneeze.
Me: That’s because you’re not old.
The Fournado: But you are!
Me: We’re going to our friend’s baptism today. First we go to a church, and then we go to a restaurant for dinner! There will be clowns and balloons, and all sorts of fun things for you to do.
The Fournado, confused and upset: Well…I don’t want to eat clowns!
Me: …NO NO NO NO NO WE WILL NOT BE EATING CLOWNS!!
