Quote of the Day

You know how when you were a little kid and you didn't want to go to bed so you'd think up any question you could so you could stay up just a little longer? Well, my kids do that too. Last night Jack had the best question ever. In fact, I wish that I had thought of it when I was little, it might have worked on my mom, but... it didn't work on me.

Jack yelling at me from his bed: "MOOOOOM?? WHY DID THE BEATLES BREAK UP?"


I'll have a real chat with him about it later.

Quote of the Day

Jackson called me this morning from school and he needed me to take his library book to him. So I got dressed and went to the school and found Jack and gave him his book. As I was leaving I over heard this...

Little girl in Jack's class: "Is that your mom?"

Jack: "yeah"

Little girl in Jack's class: "Why does she look like she is going skiing?"

Then the door closed and I didn't hear what Jack's response was but I was thinking "Because it is flippin' COLD outside!!!" In my defense I was only wearing jeans, a hoodie, hat, scarf, and gloves. This is not overkill when it is 37 degrees outside, in my opinion! sheeesh!

Quote of the Day

Link is in the other room making something out of paper, he came in and asked for help cutting out arms and legs so I cut up some strips of paper and he went on his way. A few minutes ago he yelled...

"Mom, now that I have arms I need phalanges! Do you know what phalanges are?"

Me: "No I don't."

Link: "They're fingers!!"

Me: "Well, that's good to know."
