Welcome to the Weekend! We are rockin' our Wordle in honor of Shan's Week-end Wordles! This is Shannon's Wordle Launch Weekend so go and give her some linky love! She's also known as Baby Roca's Mama at My Last Shreds of Sanity! The kids and I had a bunch of fun making wordles this week! She's ready to show you how to rock your wordle so get on over there when you're all finished up here!
I'm speaking of my weird kids, of course. Last night as we were tucking in for bed, I said to Miss Cat, "Don't let the bed bugs bite!" An evil grin appears on her cherubic face and she says, "I'll kill the bed bugs, put them in soup and use them in my chicken stir fry!" HUH? What the heck kind of crazy games does she play when I'm not around???? I'm kind of freaked out by this little angel!
This is the same weird kid that publicly humiliated our family at Olive Garden a few months ago during our delightful lunch outing. (She was five...) It went something like this...
Me: "Hey kids, I have a surprise for Daddy when we get home!"
(meaning: House is clean, laundry is done...weekend is free for family fun...trust me, that is a huge surprise...)
Cat: " What's the surprise, Mama? True Love's Kiss? (long pause....) Sex?"
Me: Choking and spitting out my peach tea..."WHAT???!!!!"
Whoa nellie! Hello! Where the heck did she learn that word????? Did I mention that the waitress is standing at the table trying not to bust a gut? Tween Caveboy covers his face with a napkin and buries his head in the sand. Chilly, of course, finds this hilarious and wants to know more. NERDANDERTHAL! Doesn't he know you can't stop this runaway train once you climb on board?
Of course, she used her outdoor voice when asking me this question. Finally, after recovering from my shock and horror, I ask her what she thinks that means. "It means to hug someone, Mama!" she smiles while sipping down her Sprite. "Where did you hear that word?" I lean over to whisper. "Giselle said it in 'Enchanted', Mama." again...with the outdoor voice! (And boo to you, Disney! Well, kind of boo...I really do love that movie...)
It's really no big deal to her, you see...or is it? Do I see a hint of an evil grin appearing on that little mouth of hers? I'm pretty sure I did.
Tween Caveboy has his weird moments too. I am not at liberty to share them. He charges me too much money for his stories. I simply can't afford him.
My 100th post is coming soon! In order to celebrate, I'm hosting a fabulous giveaway! More details to come soon, but I'll give you a hint...it's gonna be big! Stay tuned!
