#1. brady frequently comes up to me during the day and says (in his broken english... well, "funky" english, i should say)...
"hey mommy- - i'm going to tell you a zoke." actually it's probably more like "i'm doe-in' 'uh tell you a zoke."
*edited the next morning to add his favorite one. how could i forget:
"what did the cow do when he zumped over the moon?"
you may recall this post? yes, he's still really into the potty words these days. LOL! oh, may it pass!!!
oh i almost forgot. last week i dvr'd "jurassic park." we watched it a little. dino-man-brady was loving it. then came the "too scary" parts. anyway. long story short, i deleted it. well, for a few days now he's been asking to watch "zuh-raffic park!" god bless. i decided i could part with $0.88 at walmart today in honor of his new-found love for ziraffes.
...when he gets that the "j" makes the "jjj" sound, it will be a sad day in my world...
#2. jackson's first week of school has gone great. as a matter of fact, we're $1.75 richer, because of it! his super-duper friend (whose name he just learned today), victor, seemed to think that giving his friend money is a super-duper way to show one's loyalty. LOL! jackson has even divulged that victor doesn't even know his name yet. calls jackson "friend." and as jackson puts it, victor says, "hey friend. come with me, friend."
here are a few "getting ready for school" shots from this week. notice his new transformers backpack. the boy is in love. in the third shot he felt like sticking out his hiney.
then brady did too.
carter looked on smiling.
with his feet doing this.
ok, one more kindergarten story. so there's been 5 days of school so far. 4 of those 5 days, jackson has told me that he's eaten an orange for lunch. what's funny to me is - in his (almost) 5 years, he has never once asked for an orange when we've been at the grocery store. what's more - oranges are not that easy to eat, as you all know. anyhoo - he's found that he loves them, and i can't wait to get one so he can show me just exactly how he gets into it when he's in the cafeteria without me...
#3. i went for a walk the other day. something smelled so rosy. delicious, even. i thought to myself - when i round this curve, i'm sure to find a flowering vine of some sort in the woods. a jasmine? not honeysuckle, i know that smell. well. you'll never guess what it was. you'll think i'm zoking. i won't be. 'tis true. ladies and gents - it was...not a flowering vine. LOL! it was however, a portajohn. see it? i should call and see where they get there "scent"sory goodness! surely there's a 1-800 number on that thing somewhere.
#4. didn't you all feel like this when you walked in the door from school? one dollar and seventy-five cents richer, that is?
#5. sytycd. dude. she's back. (*it's on right now, i realize. i haven't watched a second of it though. you'll have to trust me.)
so, my guess is... SHE is going home. again. and mark or gev for the dudes. i like them both though. hmpfff.
