Things overheard from Monsoon (4) and cousin Sassy(3) since we got to our hotel yesterday evening:
Sassy: "I'm hunnnngryyy."
Me: "I'm getting dinner ready now."
Sassy: "Let's just eat crap first." (potato chips and suckers)
I thought this was much funnier before my husband explained how he told her potato chips and suckers were "crap" food. Gah, it can't be the first time she's heard the word crap. I hope.
I asked them both to brush their teeth before bed, and of course forgot to get them tooth paste until after they started. When I tried to put it on then, Sassy thought she already had tooth paste and didn't want me to put it on her tooth brush. Monsoon, apparently, has learned the fine (and annoying) art of tattling.
Monsoon, to Sassy: "Blugh, you're breaf smells hoooorible."
Monsoon, to me: "Sassy did NOT use toof-paste."
Me and the kids laid down for bedtime and apparently I was the most sleepy. I was almost out when I heard the husband shut the bathroom door and...
Sassy, whispering: "Come on, Monsoon. Let's get some chips!"
Monsoon: "We can't!" (I'm so proud)
Monsoon: "Because! Only my mommy is asleep right now." (sneaky thing)
We registered for a live MagiQuest scavenger hunt game, and the lady asked me what Sassy's screen name would be. Sassy promptly replied (as if our lives depended on it to be exactly right), "Jewel. Of. Liiiife."
All this and it's only been a few hours so far. Hopefully I can sleep past 5am the rest of the week - I have a feeling I'll need the extra rest. Although, it is nice having time to write a blog post before anyone else is awake...
Sanity or Patience: choose one.
Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?
