Random thoughts on a Wednesday morning. Like Tuesdays's with Morrie only it's Wednesday with Maggie and there's not really a good moral or anything. Just random goodness.
"It's like the Island of Sodor!" Yeah kid. Our weird blue carpet is kinda like that little British Island....only it's not. But that's ok. You have a good imagination. Bravo.
While holding little brother by the hand, "Come wit me Lanon toe you won't break my train track." Pretty cute and much better than smacking the little one while yelling, "NO LANON DON'T BREAK IT! MOOOOOM!"
Normal things become much cooler when you label them as AN ADVENTURE! Our latest adventure includes a trip to the local Zoo and park with a picnic. It was a wonderful adventure. We even heard tortoise flatulence--but at least he wasn't chasing the other tortoise this time. My kids understand flatulence (we blame it on big spiders in our house) but the making of little tortoise babies they don't quite get yet and I don't know if I'm ready for that discussion. The crazy hair cranes were loud (at least I think it was them squawking- whenever we got near them there was not a peep). One little boy was there with his grandpa and he kept asking the grandpa when they would see the elephants and giraffes and bears. Poor grandpa had to explain they don't have those at this zoo. (C'mon kid- you paid .50 cents to get in!) But we have lots of birds and a porcupine---though I don't think it's the albino one. Wonder what happened to him....
Migraines make everything less fun. Such as eating. One of my favorite pastimes. Though I did get to participate in our daily dining table ritual.
"Ian how's your _______?"
"Dood. How your Mom?"
"How's your __________ Landon?"
"Daddy how yo?"
Cameras should not be forgotten on adventures....alas ours was. I think maybe I should get a smaller one that I can just keep in my purse. Hm.
Rocking chairs should be shopped for. That means a lot of sitting and rocking and little to no buying.
Girl's night out is a FANTASTIC holiday :) I'm looking forward to it.
Snail mail is better- if slower. Fmail (mail messaging on Facebook) is fast. But not always better.
Bills paid in a timely manner bring peace.
So does chocolate.
And aliens. Ya know the whole, "I. come. in. peace." thing.
On which note; as a scrawny brother of Napoleon once said, "Peace out." V
