Odd's and Ends

December 11, 2009 by Rieshy
Friday Leftovers- odd random thoughts that might need to be explored or might need to be tossed:
  • Taking a two year old and a three year old to a sibling's band concert is kind of like going to the dentist; you have to do it twice a year, you know it's the right thing to do, you are happiest when it is over.
  • Gumby's voice is a lethal weapon.
  • It's totally disconcerting to walk with my teen daughters and notice boys and men notice them.
  • I have spent so many hours running to "Holiday" events that I now think Ebenezer S. may have had the right point of view before the ghosts got to him.
  • This week I had to explain what "panty hose" were to my teens.
  • While reading "Mrs. Piggly Wiggly" out-loud to my 8 yo,  I wondered about the sickly little boy that had the over protective mother. I wondered if she was really over-protective or if her son actually had mitochondrial disease or FOD, which were unknown during the time period the book was written.  Then I remembered the book is children's fiction.  Must go to bed early tonight.
  • Had Spinning Guild today.  It reminded me how important it is to have creative outlets in my life that push me beyond my daily bubble.
  • Batman and Robin don't have to wear pants.  As my 3 yo said, "They can wear just underwear."

Thanks to Sippy Cups Are Not For Starbucks for this meme.

Love the first one.

Ditto to trying to stir up the brain / having creative outlets. I'm in need of that.

Thanks so much for playing this week :)

As a mom of 2 girls, I can't imagine the day when they start noticing boys/ men and it is reciprocated. It just makes me ooogggeyyy inside!
