RANDOM BIT #2

LEGOS!  What can't kids do with them?  My dear children have sunk to new lows in the excuses as to "why we can't pick them up yet".

child #2:   "Look mama, we made a new game!  You count how many times I can hop around on one foot".
mama:       "Shouldn't you pick up the Legos first.  That might hurt your feet."
child #3:   "NO mama!  That's the game. (implied "DUH!"in tone of voice) You have to hop around without landing on any Legos."
child#4:     (nodding agreement vigorously with thumb in mouth)
child#2:    "Yeah mama.  My best try was 27 hops!" (big smile)
child #3:   "Mine was 11."
child#4:    "Count me mama, count me! (begins hopping)
mama:      "Is THIS what you have been doing up here?" (while I've been on the computer for the past 30 minutes).
children 2, 3, and 4: "YEP!

I'm so proud.

You gave me my big laugh of the day - especially since I know children 2, 3, and 4!
