Sometimes it is really fun to just listen to the kids talking to each other while they are playing video games.
Here are some snippets of conversations I heard over this weekend.
Everybody should be equally main characters in sitcoms.
It's better that way.
If I was a girl, I'd think he was hot.
You're a boy not a girl.
I know! I said 'if'!
It's on the end! (pause) No, your other end!
Don't you see the irony in that???
Nevermind... <big sigh>
My farts smell the best.
They smell good?
Nooooo, they smell really bad!
Isn't that the worst then?
NO! The BEST! <evil snicker>
Did you hear that?
Mom wants ice cream. Why does dad act like he isn't going to get it? I know he will, you know he will, doesn't he know he will?
And, yes I did get the ice cream! LOL
They are so funny!
On Thanksgiving, my nephew J was really funny, too.
He and Kathy had made corn muffins the night before because he insisted that you had to have them on Thanksgiving. Something he picked up at pre-school.
After dinner, during dessert, he insisted that in order for it to be 'more funner' the lights HAD to be shut off to eat his corn muffins!!! So, here we are, shutting off all the lights for a minute and a few corn muffin lovers took a bite of them in the dark to make him happy!
However, there were two grandmom's one mid 70's the other mid 80's, and my parents, both in their 60's... no one wanted the lights out long and a broken hip for Thanksgiving!
Poor J, he really wanted the lights to stay out, but we distracted him with a Muffin Bandit, who stole the basket while the lights were out, and then he agreed the lights should stay on, too. LOL
So, today is just a quiet football watching Sunday in our house! We also cleaned the hamsters' cage and the kids helped with raking and leaf blowing outside. Fuzzy and Pumpkin also had studying to do for school.
Yesterday was the first day of bowling for Fuzzy and Pumpkin. We all went to watch. This week and next are to just set their average and get the teams matched up. All the kids were excited to get the snack bar fries. LOL
Pumpkin bowled a 48, 85, 41 series. She did soooo much better in the second game after listening to the coaches, but her arm was too tired in the 3rd game. That will take some time for her to get used to doing!
Fuzzy bowled 120, 93, 139 series!!! The 139 is his new high game, so he was very, very happy! Fuzzy is bowling with his friend, Russ again, like last year, but the third teammate is someone they don't like that much. However, I was proud - both boys really were very cordial with him.
My mom ended up in the ER on Friday night with a kidney stone. She was in and out in three hours, just pain meds to take, not much else you can do. The CT scan showed they were not that big, which was good news.
Yesterday, my mom was really miserable and nauseaous, too, but after meds to help with that, today she is much better. Back to about 90%, I would say. The kids were so upset! They are not used to Grandma ever being sick!!! Thankfully, this was the first stones in about 18 years or so.
Any kindness you could send would be appreciated, but it appears the worst is over! Thank goodness!
