I know that I shouldn't laugh, but this was too funny not too share.
You know how when some people tell you stories about their kids, are they are not really that funny?
Maybe this story will be like that.
If it is, it's your own fault that you don't think my kids are funny!

We were eating dinner and 6 had just got done slurping up her soup with her straw.
(what a great idea huh-they always drink every bit)
It was her turn to tell us about her day.
You know how kids don't leave out any details.
6 is espescially good at this.
So-she told what her teacher wore today and what she and her friends played at recess.
You know, only the really important stuff.
She said, with a straight face-cause to her it wasn't funny, only to her mean mom!
Mom-I am quittin the monkey bars!
They are just too painful. I don't want to quit, but I think it would be good if I did.
(she really said these words-so not kidding)

I almost spit my milk out!
Hubby and I were cracking up!
He said to me-Honey I'm gonna quit the swings!
I replied with, I gotta quit the slide.
Too painful!
then we laughed out loud!
I know, we win the award for the most terrible parents ever.
It's ok, I have accepted it and moved on!

I've been trying to quit the teeter-totter for years but I just can't do it.

What a cute story! I laughed! Re: Halloween advent calendar. This might be lengthy, but I didn't see your e-mail address. I bought the little paper mache boxes at a craft store (Hobby Lobby). Wal Mart had them even cheaper at .69 cents, so I'll be going there now. I spray painted them black, decoupaged Halloween paper on the front, embellished, and hot glued a strong magnet to the back. The boxes vary in size a little, but I plan on putting some little pieces of candy (for two kids), a Halloween tattoo, etc. in there. I hope you end up doing it! It's been fun making it, and my kids are elated! I hope I didn't forget anything! Good luck!

That's so funny! On Monday my 9 year old came home from school and told me how apalled (oh yes, she went there) she was with the choices for President! Yep! That's my little political analist!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I laugh at Anna all the time and the other lady in nursery looks at me like I am the worst parent ever. Where is the fun in that? Isn't that we we had kids to begin with? No? Oh well - it's still funny anyway ;)

I love it but I am with her. Have you tried the monkey bars lately? I try to do them everytime we go to the park and its brutal on the hands. You can tell her I am totally quitting the monkey bars too!
