Without her, we'd have to be coherent and deliver up a REAL blog post.
Instead, we get to serve up bits and pieces of RaNDoMNeSS!
Who doesn't love RaNDoM THouGHT TueSDaY?
* It's lacrosse season!
The REAL craziness begins.
But I realized that my craziness has been cut significantly.
Three years ago, I had three players and approximately 7 games a week.
Last year I had two players and went to 5 games a week.
Now, I can just lounge around. Parker only has 2-3 games a week.
What will I do with ALL of that free time?
*We had a special church meeting this weekend.
Parker and I drove to the church building where we attended when the kids were little.
It was like a TRIP down memory lane.
Parker: "Remember how the minute we would get in the car after church, we would start undressing?"
Me: "You did?"
Parker: "Yeah. We'd undo our ties and start unbuttoning our shirts. By the time we got home, we'd just be sitting in the back seat in our t-shirts and boxers."
Me: "I don't remember that. How old were you?"
Parker: "You don't remember? I was 4. EVERY week you would say, 'Now hang your church clothes up! Don't just throw them on your floor in a ball.' "
For the record, I don't think they EVER hung the church clothes up.
*I remember that I would always ask the kids what they learned in church that day.
Garrett always had gems.
Me: "Garrett, what did you learn in church today?"
Garrett: "I learned..........what I learned."
*Me: "Garrett, what did you learn in church today?"
Garrett: "About Jesus."
It took me about six weeks to figure out that he was playing me and always answered "about Jesus."
Finally I asked, "What ABOUT Jesus?"
*Me: "Garrett, what did you learn about in church today?"
Garrett: "Oh we learned about the Holy Ghost and how he has a still small voice and can comfort you and help you make decisions."
WOW! Pretty good for a 5 year old.
A couple of hours later, I thought we would have a review at the dinner table....you know, to cement those concepts in.
Me: "Garrett:,what did you learn about in church today?"
Garrett: "About the Holy Ghost. He has a cape and flies around."
Forget cementing anything in.
Those were the days!
* Yesterday was Pi day.
In celebration, we had homemade pizza.
Mine had pesto, fresh mozzarella, pepperoni and sauteed mushrooms and onions.
* Do you think I'm a girly girl?
My dishwashing gloves
NO ONE is allowed to use that spatula but me.
Would anyone else REALLY want to?
For the record, *I* didn't buy that stuff! The boys gave them to me! REALLY!
* Another conversation -
Parker: "I can't wait until Easter."
Parker: "I'm really looking forward to doing the Easter egg hunt all by myself."
Me: "Easter is late this year. Garrett will be home from college."
Parker: "What? I wanted to get everything. I wanted to have it all to myself without the competition!"
Me: "You get the same amount. What do you care?"
Parker: "No. I was planning on me being the only one hunting but you still hiding TWO chocolate bunnies, TWO Chipotle cards, TWO eggs with money in them....."Me: "Why would I hide two if you were the only one there?"
Parker: "I don't know. That's just what I was planning on."
Is he 16 or 3?
Well, I'm off to the lacrosse store to get
a pecan bar from the Corner Bakery the team shorts.
Have a great TueSDaY!
