Even the kids get in on the action. We are all about some cardboard in this family. Tito Burrito when we moved in. He was just a baby! :(
5. The two bigs have been attending two Vacation "Bible" Schools this week. I put Bible in quotations as there hasn't been a whole lot-a schooling related to the Bible, according to the kiddos.
6. They have been schooled in what NOT to eat by yo yo Ma. They haven't listened, of course. What five year old do you know that would say no to a "Cupcake! With blue icing! WITH LICORICE ON TOP!!" I swear, they knew they were twisting a knife in my heart and they said it with more joy than needed. I hate that I have to lecture my children on making wise food choices. They shouldn't be put into the position that they have to question what it being put in front of them by an adult in charge. I DOUBLE hate that adults in charge are so. freaking.
7. I understand kid functions are supposed to be fun. What I don't understand is why the food at kid functions has to be so ridiculous. I mean, really. REALLY? Cupcakes? My hopes were peaked yesterday when I asked what the snack was, "Graham crackers."
"Oh," my heart thought, "that's not... as bad."
followed up by: "With great big blobs of icing on it & candy stuck in the blobs."
8. I've been putting personal messages on the boxes that I'm not strong enough to carry. I'm hoping it'll keep the men folk from dropping my heavy goods.
