I asked Jessica a question.. now don’t get me wrong.. I think my daughter is absolutely beautiful but we were messing around and being silly so the end of the conversation went like this….
Me: Jessica… why are you so ugly?
Jessica: (In a grunting and almost yelling voice and in a drawn out way blurted out…)
“Cause somebody messed me up! AARRRRR!”
She really did grunt! It was hilarious!!
I had a several errands to run so Jessica & I went to the grocery store and did several other things. I then decided to go back to Ande’s school and take her out of school early. Of course she was pleased with that.
After dinner, which I got for free because I “nicely” complained about the poor eating experience and this time it had nothing to do with my children’s behavior. ha ha.. Anyhow, we slowly wobbled back to our car that we left on the complete opposite side of the parking lot. We just stood by the car and talked and talked and talked some more. Somehow we started doing those hand/song thingamajigs that we did back in grade school. We were trying to remember how we used to do the Dr Pepper song back in the 80’s…. Do you remember that one? Anyhow, we almost got it, but still need to work on the hand moves and the correct words. I know it sounds super silly, but we actually had a nifty time!
On Sunday we went to church and then went to my aunts home for yummy dinner (ribs, carne asada & ham) and an Easter egg hunt for kids and adults. The confetti eggs are the funnest but messiest.
Jessica (4 1/2 yrs old) was rubbing my arm (so I thought). She does this often so I didn’t think anything of it. I then hear laughter from her as she tells me to look at my arm. So I look and see nothing. She then points me to the specific spot to look at. I said, “GROSS!!! Did you just put a booger on me?” and as she’s laughing she tells me no, that our dog did it.
WHAT? How is it funny to put a booger on your mom and then lie about it and blame it on the dog. Aye Aye Aye!
For Family Home Evening we made scripture cookies. (or at least attempted – ha) I thought it was a rather clever idea. Jessica, mMy youngest daughter, doesn’t usually sit still for FHE but this time she did. (yay) We read the scriptures and tried to figure out the ingredients. Jessica was able to pour in the ingredients and turn the Kitchen Aid on and off. It was a great success….. until I realized I didn’t have oats! YIKES! No oats for oatmeal cookies… hmmm.. what should one do? I had the brilliant idea of using 4 packages of the single pack instant oats. It didn’t turn out as great as regular oats would have but the cookies were still surprisingly good and edible. Keep Reading
