YAY! I have a free Friday! No work (other than the "norm" at home) No singings No parties No getting ready...... can you hear that??? The Hallelujah chorus is being sang in my honor :)
but short lived it is- we have a 10am birthday party in the morning which means me and Miss Grouchy (aka Kaylee) have to get up and run out the door. And let me tell you- she needs some rest- if that child has one more dramatic melt down this week I feel certain she will be shipped off to Drama Queen School! If it isn't hair it is clothes, if it isn't clothes it is shoes, if it isn't shoes it is school work, if it isn't school work Kyle must be breathing too close to her....... Lord help me make it until she is 18!!!!
We did have a comical moment this week. We were eating supper Wednesday night and chatting about school. Kaylee had "Camping" week last week and she was telling about how the teacher put marshmallows in the microwave to make smores and the marshmallows swelled really big when she turned it on. I told her my sisters and I did that when we were kids. Then she went on to ask me about when I was a kid. She asked "What did you wear BACK THEN?" and I asked "When is BACK THEN?" *PAUSE* I always ask unnecessary questions when we are in conversation like this because I LOVE to hear their answers! ANYWAY she said "When you were born..... in the 1940's or whatever!!!!!" So math must not be doing a thing for this child at school because I am 28 and she thinks I was born in the 40's!) I told her (after laughing my head off) that I WAS NOT born until 1981. She said "Well what did you wear THEN?" I said "you know how you wear your Justin Bieber shirt- when I was a kid there was this group called NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK- I liked them like you like him" OK- I felt like I was talking about the Beatles because she was like "who?" and then we went on to talk about the little records that came in the back of books that told stories, what I did at school, etc. etc. from when I was a child- and I had that overwhelming feeling of I am my mom- I really am getting on up there to be having a "Back when I was your age" conversation with my child.
Oh the joys of motherhood!!!
