"Mamma, is the dishwasher clean?"
"Yes, it is."
"No wonder my knife looks so precious."
I'm glad we are expanding our vocabulary, but we might need to work on meanings...
I hosted my annual No Boys Allowed Holiday Party last weekend. Since it didn't SNOW this year, there was a great turn out and fun was had by all. My favorite part: I took a pair of black Tuxedo pants from the back of my closet. I haven't worn them in three years. Not only do they fit, they are ROOMY- without shapewear!!!!
Then I promptly gained four pounds ~ DOH!
This song always brings me to my knees... maybe because I'm a mom? Except I remember liking it as a kid, too.
I spoke with the AG teacher at school the other day, mostly because she was scheduled to do my peer observation. The last set of scores has not been released yet, but The Boy will definitely be double identified as Academically Gifted next year.
Then I got a call from the Basketball Coordinator. Seems he scored the highest of all the 3rd graders in the pre evaluations and he wanted to know if I wanted him to play up with the 4th and 5th graders. The Boy Child is not exactly the tallest kid on the block, so I gave him the choice and he wanted to play with his friends. Then I got a message from an acquaintance's husband telling me I should be proud and giving me his scores (I was anyway, but I have no idea what the numbers mean :-))
I've heard it said that true geniuses are well-rounded and tend to excel in everything...
I'm kidding... but it makes me smile!
Cute Boy may have resurfaced. We shall see... that's all I'm gonna say about that for a while *winks*
I am still not done with shopping... no idea what to get my parents... my sister offered to take the kids Sunday so I could finish in peace... not that shopping the Sunday before Christmas will be peaceful... she also, due to her own budget constraints this year, asked me to split the cost of the gift she got for my dad. That helps...plus it was something I didn't think of that he actually needs!
Three more work days 'til Christmas Break!
