Funny Moments

I am so busy and spinning in so many different directions, I swear my head is going to pop off.

Rerun has a check-up this morning, Ane has a swim evaluation after school (this is for placement into a group for swimming lessons), and I have some baking to do for Auntie’s graduation party on Saturday.  Graduation went well, by the way – pictures later!

But there are two funny moments I wanted to share…

I stopped with all three kids on the way home from piano lessons at our local Bible bookstore, to pick up the second DVD of What’s in the Bible?, because Tad has suddenly become very interested in it.  It’s not sharks, it’s not Batman, it talks about the Bible… Why, yes, son, you MAY watch it!  And may I buy you some more?

But then he found… a Larry Mobile.  With Larry Boy and Alfred figures to go with it.  And he wanted it.  BADLY.

I told him that he had no money with him, and Mama wasn’t going to buy it… so he was going to have to earn some money himself to buy it.  We have used this principle before, to great effect, with both Tad and Ane, so he understood what I was saying.

Tad then walked up to the girl at the cash register and said, “Excuse me, can I have some monies, please?”

She thought it was the cutest thing ever, and I tried not to laugh as I told him that he needed to GO HOME and check his piggy bank.

His fire truck piggy bank has exactly $4.13.  The Larry Mobile is $19.99.  We have some saving to do.  And some chores-for-cash to assign, it seems.

Second funny moment comes from Tad’s field trip to the zoo yesterday…

I was a parent chaperone for the big huge kindergarten field trip for Tad’s school yesterday.  Rerun stayed with Grandma and Gichan for the day, and Ane was at school.  We were going to ride a school bus to the zoo, and one of the district rules is that only students or chaperones can ride the bus – no little siblings allowed.

One of the chaperone moms had her seven month old baby girl with her, and was going to follow the bus to the zoo.  No problem.

Her kindergartener was sitting in the seat in front of Tad and me on our way to the zoo.  “I can’t see my mom’s car,” she said, somewhat worried, to one of the paraeducators in Tad’s class, who was sitting across from her.

“What does your mom’s car look like?” the paraeducator asked her.

“Um… it’s dirty,” she said helpfully.

I am sorry to say that her description was not all that helpful… but it was extremely funny.

    Cute! I need to keep track of all the smart-mouth stuff that Little Cowgirl says.

    At last night’s graduation, some of the kids did silly things after receiving their diplomas. the last pair to “walk” offered a display of a “dip” and kiss. At the laughter, Ane asked me what happened. I told her that they had kissed. She then asked if it was on the cheek. At my response of the kiss being on the lips, she answered, “Well, THAT was inappropriate”. Love that girl!
