My neighbor's children were playing in my yard with my own this week. I looked out the window to see their 8-year-old standing in the door to the UPS truck that had just pulled up. I yelled out the door for him to get down and they all turned to me and said, "But Porter is in there!"
Seems the 4-year-old was already in the truck running around. The poor UPS lady, although very gracious, was quite flummoxed by her unexpected travel companion!
Maybe they should put doors on those things!
The Girl and The Boy were discussing some of their classmates. Because we have electives, they mix with children from other grade levels two periods a day. The Boy mentioned another boy, a fifth grader, with whom he had been playing chess.
The Girl pipes up with, "That's Vera's cousin...well, half cousin."
"Half cousin?" I asked.
"That's what she said. Maybe it's an Indian tradition!"
It was an emotional week in my neck of The South. The issue at hand was a serious one and the potential effect the results will have on single mothers like me remains to be seen. Regardless of what side of the argument you fall on, it's NOT a laughing matter.
That said, every time I see this, I snicker. I can't help myself!

I've taken the day off today as we are off on our annual Family Camp Mother's Day Weekend with our church. I just had too much to do to get ready including securing a bike rack. I have two...neither will work on the new car... umm, yeah...about that trailer hitch I've been meaning to put on... Luckily I was saved by the family of one of The Boy's friends. The dad even put the thing on the car for me!
Happy Mother's Day!
