It's that time of the week that everyone loves...time for me to rid some of the randomness swirling around my head.
1-Watched Cougartown last night...pretty much exactly what I predicted a few months ago. I feel slightly dumber after zoning out for the half hour while I watched it. (And by using slightly, I was being NICE.)
2-Funny minism take 1: We had a dinner guest last night and when we were at the grocery store getting a few things, Mini #1 said he wanted an apple pie. They have been studying the letter A this week in school and clearly apples have come many times and they did an apple tasting set of activities yesterday.
We get the pie and after dinner, I am getting the pie and vanilla icecream ready for everyone. Mini #1 proceeds to eat all of his icecream and doesn't touch the pie. I say to him "Aren't you going to eat the apple pie. You chose this for tonight."
Mini #1: "I don't like apple pie. Can I have some more icecream?"
Me: "You chose the apple pie. You love apples and you have had the pie before and now why won't you eat any of it."
Mini: "I just wanted the icecream and I could have the icecream if we got the apple pie."
VERY SMART my dear!!!
3-Funny minism take 2: Funny interaction between Mini #1 and I last night when fighting off the bedtime. Every few weeks or so, he gives me one night of stubborn behavior and pulls out all the stops. He wanted to sleep in my bed and this was a no go. This took place after the third time we had gone up to bed and I was in the kitchen cleaning up.
(comes downstairs crying-no tears) Mini 1: "I had a bad dream."
Me: "No you didn't. You didn't go to sleep."
Mini #1: (abruptly stops crying): "Oh."
Told you he was smart. An A for effort my boy!
4-Next week is Mr. Molly Lou's last week on this project. Starting on October 5, he will be on a new project, a government nuclear power plant. This is a great job and position for him, but it means he will be gone each week. We have done this bit before, but have become so accustomed to "normal" life and have added another mini in to the mix that I am in this funk about it.
5-This Mackenzie Phillips ordeal. Between naps and distracting Mini #1, I actually saw some of that interview on Oprah and of course, I turned to my trusty People.com to help with extra details and information. All I can say about this is WOW, WOW, EWWWWWWWWWW, WTF, GROSS, and WOW!
