There are several things I just want to tell you...
...I had a very fun day with TheCarPoolQueen. We took our combined five children out for donuts and a trip to the museum.
...I was worried at first because my kids were so. very. tired. They were walking a fine line toward being unsocial, but after a little Krispie Kreme sugar and they perked up.
...I too wasn't feeling so hot when I arrived at the CPQ household. It's amazing what a chocolate covered creme filled donut and a cup of hot java (with real cream! Yikes!) will do for a girl.
...The CPQ Triplets scare me just a little, for one reason alone, they are smarter than me.
While sitting in a "class" on birds and dinosaurs (in which we were the only ones in attendance) Baby B raised his hand. The scientist said, "Yes, you have a question?"
Baby B says something about the genetic coding of DNA in the wooly mammoth, or the carrier pigeon, and that by crossing something-or-other-with-something-else, it would be quite possible to bring the dinosaurs back.
If that sentence didn't make sense, let me tell you its because this 36 year old woman has no earthly idea what he said....but the professional scientist he was talking to, knew exactly what he was was saying!
Honestly, I'm thinking about convincing TheCarPoolQueen to pull him out of fourth grade next year and bringing him to my house to homeschool me and my kids.
Ok moving on....
...Often, while running in the early morning, I have experienced various situations. Snakes, deer, dogs, a rooster who crows every time I run by his house. But the hardest thing to encounter while on an early morning run is the smell of someone making pancakes and bacon. It has happened several times in the last two weeks and its like torture, I tell you.
...I have some exciting things planned around the blog during the week of July 6 - 11. On the seventh it my Bloggy Birthday!! Celebrating four years of blogging is fun for me. Who knew I would stick with this thing. Anyway, there may be some fun things around here that week, that may require you to know certain information...so keep reading in the days to come.
...Lastly, (as a Public Service Announcement to the kids) I want it to be known that we are having Spaghetti tonight. We are not having grilled chicken, or grilled chicken wraps, or sandwiches, or grilled chicken salad, or smoothies, or cereal, or anything cold, or remotely like chicken.
I hope you enjoy it. Because the next seven nights, well, you know what we're having.
