It’s been a bit of a morning around here. The big kids are at co-op. Except for Adam, who has injured his leg and has a doctor’s appointment later. Gonna be mighty inconvenient to go to Disney World if he can’t walk…
And then there’s my washing machine, which decided this was a good week to go on strike. My laundry room looks like this:
We’re taking the whole family to the laundromat tonight, so, you know, bloggy fodder is on its way…
However, I do have some good things to share: First, and probably least important, my new StitchFix box was a total keeper. Loved every item. I wish I had the photography skills to prove it. I think S.F has found its new groove since all the growing pains. If you’ve been wanting to try, now would be a good time! (Link includes my referral code.)
Willa is at a delightful stage where every word out of her mouth is hilarious. She’s got a pretty dry wit for a five year old and Drama is her middle name. But this little exchange just made me giggle:
“Daddy? Can Mira and me go outside?”
“No, can Mira and I go outside?”
Giggles. “Not you, Daddy! Mira and ME!!”
That took a few minutes to sort out.
And finally, in my first day of teaching my co-op class of middle schoolers, I wanted to show them a funny little grammar cartoon at the end of class. Without thinking, I mentioned The Daily Show, although none of them would have seen it at 10 pm, and how at the end of the show, there is a 15 second blurb of ridiculousness they call The Moment of Zen. Then I showed them their very own “moment of zen” and we all had a good laugh.
They made me promise to do one every week.
It wasn’t until I got home and was patting myself on my back for my super cool teaching skills that I realized I’d just promised a bunch of Baptist homeschoolers “A Moment of Zen,” not to mention that I’d brought up a television show even I shouldn’t be allowed to watch.
Anyway, I explained it all to the parents and nobody minds and it’s the highlight of my class every single week. Any time I can mix potty humor with grammar gaffes, it’s a sure hit.
All of that to say, I leave you with this, Your Moment of… wait for it… Finn:
