Baby, it's cold outside!

The girls and i are getting back into the habit of taking the Wonder Dog for a nice long walk each morning. Today we got started earlier than usual and it was downright chilly outside! G and M were riding bikes while A and I walked fast to try and warm up. M apparently hadn't gotten the memo to wear socks and her feet were cold. At one point she stopped to ask, "Mom, can I borrow your socks?"

Excuses, excuses.

The small two were in the tub together the other morning. Seriously, they can be entertained in there for hours, but on this day, we had stuff to do and they were supposed to be hurrying. They weren't. When I hollered at them to get out (for like the third time!), G informed me that they weren't out of hot water yet. Great. I've trained them well. :eyeroll: Later in the day, the small one, M, was in the bathroom. Again, I needed to be doing something else with her and she was dawdling. When I pushed her to hurry it up in there, she said, "but I'm not done with this magazine yet!"

Time to change my hair color

I planted new hydrangeas this spring and the girls have had fun watering them. It's been raining every few days for the last couple weeks and we haven't had to water. It's been great because now I don't get asked by every child, daily, "Can I water the flowers??"

One day last week, A and I were together out front and I noticed some of our front sidewalk was wet. You know, the part by the hose and ONLY the part near the hose. I commented on it and looked, but didn't see any water coming out of the hose. It kinda looked like someone had stepped on the hose and gooshed out what was in it. So, I didn't give it another thought.

About three days later, we were outside again and again, the sidewalk near the hose was wet. This time A looked closer and announced, "Um, mom, the water is ON! It's trickling out of the hose!" Oh dear. As she went to shut off the hose, I noticed that there was a nice, plush quarter circle of long, green grass at the corner of the yard where it's been getting a trickling of water for the last TWO WEEKS (or more!).

Whoops.

Mom of the Year

Last Sunday as we were rushing to go to church, I thought M's dress looked kinda funny. I forgot to check. When we got home, I realized it was on backwards. Whoops.

This Saturday, during her soccer game, while she was on the field I thought I saw her drawstrings on the back of her pants. Of course, I forgot to check. Until, hours later when we got home and she was changing for bed (yep, ALL day), she did indeed have her pants backwards.

I rock.
