It's everyone's FAVORITE day!
Get on over to The Un Mom and say "HI!" to Keely!
* Parker called yesterday afternoon to tell me that there would be no school today.
Since I trust my children implicitly and want them to be confident in that trust and
because I'm the BEST MOM in the world,
I responded: "Nuh uh! Who told you that?"
P: "Our teacher. They just got an email from the school district."
Me: "No way! I'm looking on the website for myself........ Oh my gosh! There's no school tomorrow! I'll pick you up and we can go to Red Box."
P: "Can't we just go home? I pulled a hamstring."
Me: "Oh no! We need movies! We're going to party it up!"
* Windchill today will be between -10 and -40.
I think I'm the only one who thinks it's awesome!
* Because I'm all about fairness and being kind and loving, AND I'm the BEST MOM,
I immediately hung up and texted the other two boys at college to brag that WE didn't have school!
Garrett texted back: "Why? Is it really snowing there?"
Me: "No there's not that much snow but it's supposed to be like -15."
See! That's love!
* While driving from school to the Red Box -
Parker: "Can we talk? Let's talk about feelings."
Me: Incredulous and silent
Parker: "You want to know how I feel? I think it sucks that the Map Pack comes out tonight at midnight but it's only for XBOX. And on a day when we don't have school. If it came out for Playstation, I would get it at 12:01 and play it through the night."
Me: Still incredulous and silent but for different reasons
Parker: "It's so stupid! What a rip off."
Me: "Map Pack? Are we talking about Call of Duty? Are we talking about how you feel about video games?"
Wow! I think we're really communicating!
* Do you think it's normal that Parker is so hungry that just ONE HOUR after dinner, he is rooting around the refirgerator and freezer for "spare" meat?
Is it normal for a child to come in at 9 pm and ask, "Hey do youneed that steak for anything?"
Uh yeah.........dinner tomorrow!
Is it normal for me to just give in and go to the store and come home with a handful of steaks and say,
"Hey, I got some rib eyes for next time you're hungry."
Can't he just have a bowl of ice cream or a handful of Cheez Its?
* Several people are asking where I found the swimsuits I featured in yesterday's post -
Two (the red and the hot pink multi colored tankinis) were from Nordstrom
The two one pieces (navy and turquoise multi colored) were from Tommy Bahama.
We'll justify it by pointing out the quality fabric and exceptional fit!
Have a fabulous Tuesday! And if you are in one of the 30 states affected by the storm - STAY WARM!
