Now, I could get a job with those shiny new degrees I've got, but, I really just want to focus on school, and Kevin thinks that's a terrific idea. So, here I am...
The first day of the first week of no school went like this:
I got up at 7 (:40) am, to get Zoe off to school. Then I
Then I trolled Facebook (e.i. my mom).
After Zoe got home, we went through her papers (no homework, yay!), and she launched into one of her Zoe-isms. My daughter is a silly one... she has a new favorite color, dolly, surprise every day. Today, I got TWO surprises!
The first one was today's nickname. I have called Zoe "Peanut" since she was a baby. Her daddy calls her Lunch Box. So, as I was talking to her, I called her by Peanut. "Mom," she says, "Today, I will only answer to Lunch Box!" What the hell! "What's wrong with Peanut," I ask? "On days when I can eat everything in the whole wide world, I am Lunch Box! And, today, I am really, really HUNGRY!" Ok, Lunch Box it is.
The next surprise came a couple hours later. I was sitting in the living room, reading a book. In walks LUNCH BOX, wearing a purple skirt with a toy fireman's badge pinned to it, my graduation cap... And that was it. I bust out laughing. "Zoe, what in the hell are you wearing?!" She just gave me her special Zoe grin and said, "Don't I look cute?" I didn't take a picture of it (I should have) But, it reminded me of another special Zoe outfit

The excitement doesn't stop there, though. Oh no! I got a bonus round!
Right before supper, it started raining. This was one of those rains that where the sun is still shining, and if you're lucky, you can see a rainbow. It completely dumbfounded Nicholas.
Nick: What the hell, Mom, it's raining!
Me: Yes, Nick, I see that.
Nick: But, THE SUN IS OUT!
Me: Yup, it will do that every now and then...
Nick: IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO RAIN WHEN THE SUN IS SHINING!
|I know I used this earlier on FB, but it's funny, damn it!|
I wonder what material my children will provide for my next post...
PS - Is it wrong of me to have envisioned a 21 year old Zoe in a girly fireman's costume, dancing around a poll? *shudder*
