Doesn't Google just automatically update this for me now? I have some vague post ideas clamoring for my attention, but I have limited mental resources today, so they'll have to clamor on until one of them just steps up and writes itself for me. Until then, some notes from the holiday weekend:
*On Friday, 7yo announces that he wants to walk home from the pool. I say "OK, I'll walk with you", and he sighs and says "no, I know the way! I can walk myself! I'm SEVEN YEARS OLD". Little do I know that I'll hear him announce that he's SEVEN YEARS OLD at least twenty-five more times during the weekend. I finally have to remind him that having been there at his birth, I KNOW how old he is.
*Did you know that they don't call swim meets for rain?
Did you know that swim meets last for approximately four hours?
Did you know that timers don't leave the deck for the entire meet?
Now you know.
*Sunday movie matinee with the kids: Kung Fu Panda. ("Why can't we see "Indiana Jones"? It won't scare me! I'm SEVEN YEARS OLD!") 3yo asks for his sweatshirt, but won't allow me to help him put it on...he wants to fight it. "Evvybody be quiet...I'm de Dragon Warrior. Hi-ya! Hi-ya! Hi-ya!" A frenzy of chopping arms and kicking legs and the sweatshirt is soundly beaten. Fortunately, the people behind us find this very amusing. And then it gets downright cold in the theater, so the Dragon Warrior and his defeated foe are joined.
*I can't believe I didn't blog about this as soon as it happened...on Thursday night, I order a margarita while out to dinner with a friend, and I am asked for identification. It must be the lighting. Because I'm 42 YEARS OLD.
I hope you all had a nice weekend.
