Last Sunday I took the kids to Pizza Hut for a diversion from some hard stuff we are going through. We had a few Book-It coupons for mini pizzas from a program I signed them up through for home schoolers to encourage reading. They have a new *natural* pizza that we tried also and we really liked it. Usually I end up with a tummy ache and didn't this time. thumbs up..
vending machine toys....toy rings and jukebox music...
mmmm...just what we needed.
Tessa tricked Hannah for April Fool's day. She made red jello in a drinking glass and Hannah tried to *drink* it. The kids thought it was hilarious.
I needed to get some online school work done today so my neighbor was having the kids go to play at her house for a couple hours and it was taking Tessa for--ever to leave the house.
She looks at me and says *I am only a figment of your imagination" and walks out of the room. a minute later I see her crawling on the other side of the couch and I say impatiently "Tes, you are NOT a figment of my imagination and I need to get to my school work". She stands up with her pair of ballet flats and says with a grin "Mom, I was only getting my shoes from under the couch". What a card.
I was searching out some encouragement online for Christian Single parents home schooling tonight and found some articles that were great. I was all in the snuggly mood and Hannah sat on my lap and cuddled in. I seized the moment and whispered in her ear "Have I told you recently that I love you and what a great person you are"?
She looked at me under big eyelashes and leaned over and whispered in my ear "I have a secret for you. You have very hot breathe that goes right into my ear".
still chuckling over that one...
