Nothing happened today.
While getting ready for school…
H: “Mom, I had a dream last night that you and Dad had gained tons of weight.”
P: “No, honey that is what you call a nightmare.”
While running out the door for school and work…
K: “Uhh -Mom, why are you wearing two different black shoes?”
While making an afterschool snack…
K: “Mom, I discovered a new way to pull out loose teeth…blue Jolly Ranchers.” (K produces out of pocket blue Jolly Rancher encrusted tooth).
While doing math homework…
H: “Mom, what did the Zero say to the Eight? …. ‘Nice Belt’”.
While making dinner…
P: “Hey, guys, if you smell plastic melting in the kitchen, that’s because, well, it is.”
(peanut gallery comments ensue)
K: “If you smell the dinner burning, that’s because, well it is.”
H: “If you smell the house on fire, that’s because, well it is,”
While getting ready for bed…
K: “What do you think the Tooth Fairy will give me for my jolly rancher filled tooth?”
K: “Half the usual gold dollar?”
P: “A quarter to call the dentist.”
Today was a good day – maybe, the best day ever.
But then, there is always tomorrow.
