Go Team!

Today was "Wear Your Favorite Team Colors" Day at school.

Now let me explain why grammar is so important.

This morning I found Ben sporting a green shirt and Anna sporting a pink shirt. "Today is Wear Your Favorite Team Colors Day," I tell them. Ben replies, "Green IS my favorite color." Grammatically stumped by a 4 year old.
If the teacher had asked us to wear our favorite team's colors, or the colors of our favorite team, I would have been ok. However, we were to wear our favorite team colors. Anna may not know of a team that wears pink, but she sure does think that pink is her favorite color for a team.

I sent an NC State shirt in their bookbag, along with an explanation to the teacher. Sigh.

Wow

Yesterday, we received really cute customized crutches in the mail. These were a special gift from Every Kid Mobility, a company we recommend on Lifestyle Accelerator. We will be doing a product review of the crutches, but in the meantime, something amazing is happening. Take a look.

Spontaneous Generation

Occasionally, I consider resigning from housework. I have a lovely lady that comes to help me once a month, and I always cringe in embarrassment at what she sweeps off the floor. I find myself stammering things such as, "I REALLY DO clean my house when you're not here...heh heh...ummm." Or, "Wow! Where'd THAT come from? I have NO IDEA why the floor is so dirty." Well, folks, the answer has been revealed. I now know where this dirt comes from. Spontanious generation. Look, I don't want to hear you argue that some scientist disproved that years ago with some maggots and a piece of meat. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, go check a middle school science book.) I have a picture that PROVES spontanious generation. Keep in mind my laundry room floor was swept AND mopped less than 24hrs ago. I give you exhibit A.

We have dirt. We have pieces of food. We have a plastic bag??? And the clincher... two wrappers from the kind of sucker that you get from the bank. Guess what folks? My children didn't even HAVE suckers yesterday. Hahahahahahahahahahaha! I've got the trash all figured out now. It slipped up and made a fatal error. Never generate an object that is not actually plausible. I'll give you dirt, and food particles and MAYBE the plastic bag. But NOT the wrappers. One of the mysteries of the universe has just been solved. Case closed.

Update






So, ummmmm, I think I'm in trouble for not posting in a while. I have to admit, I've been neglecting my blog in order to work on my other website. I've been contacting a lot of people to promote it, and things have been going well. However, all my blogger audience cares about is pictures of the children. If you want to see pictures of my children, you should just go to my friend Melissa's site. She's been taking care of updating my mom, as you can see here. But, I need to do my duty as a parent, so let's get out the camera and see what we can dig up from the old memory card... Ok- notice. Halfway through arranging these pictures, my click and drag stopped working correctly. That's why they are in a crazy order.
