Out of the Mouth of M and H

A picture is worth a thousand words...

Last week, M, had me rolling on the floor with laughter...I should have wrote it all down before I forgot...my brain has already forgotten 80% of it.

On the subject of marriage:

"Mom, I'm not ever getting married...too much kissy! I'm just going to live with you so you can always see my cute butt!"

H was talking about the Cinderella play she saw with her class put on by a local high school and said the Prince kissed Cinderella and M said "It's illegal to kiss in high school!"

"I know why they named it Minnesota, because there is a big building filled with soda!!!"

Then there is today:

H: Mom, why do some baby brothers annoy their big sisters?
Me: Not some, ALL brothers annoy their sisters and all sisters annoy their sisters.
M: I don't get "noyed" I just get mad and get really red in the face.

Such is my life...my friends are taking cruises, having grandbabies, seeing Europe...I stay at home and laugh.

My Mini Stay-cay

The short people and I took a little trip to see my friend in Georgia. They went to Vacation Bible School this morning while I sat on the veranda and had a nice time reading my book. It was absolutely perfect...there was no humidity, the breeze was gently rustling the trees in the leaves, the birds were singing and the scent of gardenias perfumed the air. Perfection...I wish I could capture the serenity in a bottle and take it home with me. :-)

Walking on the Moon

Untitled from Susan Bice on Vimeo.

The kids learned what it was like to walk on the moon at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville.

I had turned the camera off and put it away when M started beaming and talking about how much fun it was...he is kind of like a crockpot, he takes awhile to warm up but when he does, he's hot!

The Little People returned this wayward stranger after I found it in the backyard...How did I find it? I stepped on it, the little guy is lucky to be alive.
