We were discussing O and her fish Frederick, as she prepares for University. She wanted him to come along, but was not sure the dorm rules regarding live non human things. Today she informed me that “Mom Good News Frederick can come to the university with me!” After a few minutes she informed us that her roommate M has a frog named Kermit, one of the other kids asked if Kermit was going to be living in the dorm, I replied I assumed it would be okay if he was kept in a tank, and little A piped up, “yeah you probably cannot bring a camel to college, they spit.” Since we do not have a pet camel, it is safe to say we are not bringing it to college drop off day.
One day in the van E and little A asked when we were going to go to chick-fil-a for a meal. I answered either Thursday or Friday for dinner. They both picked a day, and then proceeded to talk to each other about which day was a better day. Little A looked at E and said ‘who ever says it the most quiet saying the day, mom will pick’ So back and forth they whispered Thursday-Friday-Thursday-Friday… Until they were almost silent. After going back and forth little A told E that she was “too loud, mom won’t pick you.’ E answered back “mom will pick what ever she wants, she does not care what we are saying.” That girly is correct. I just smiled and kept driving. (We went on Friday)
At dinner I informed Keith that the vacuum was no longer working, he prompted me to check the filter to see if it was plugged or not. R piped up and said, “not to complain but our vacuum really sucks at sucking.” We all bust out laughing.
What about you, did you take a fish or a camel to college when you went? I had a plant.
go hug your kids, they need your love
