Future Ticia 2023 is combining and updating posts, moving some memories off of posts and all that stuff, but here we go. I’m gonna start shoving posts into one great smorgasbord of a post.
Another thing kids are not as helpful as they seem
Really with their help it took me over 2 hours. When I went back by myself and did a second coat, it was about 30 minutes and nowhere near as messy.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering magnetic paint does not come off very easily. Not at all.
I’m declaring today a computer-free day
Well, that’s what I’m going to try and do. So, if I don’t read your post today or comment, that’s why. I’m feeling a little stressed and harried, and some of it is because I know I’ve been spending too much time on the computer and not enough time doing things I need to do.
Instead I will be:
Yes, they are sword fighting in the back seat of the car……
And maybe even digging in the dirt.
They’re getting tricksy
We recently installed DC Online on our computers. Not too surprisingly Superman and Batman are very excited about this game and have happily designed their favorite heroes.
I got up this morning after an extra little nap courtesy of Princess and her coming down in tears and saying “I’m tired,” thank you boys for waking her, by the way.
Well, Batman quite happily ran up to me and said, “Mommy, Daddy made a fire. When you go to sit by the fire can I play Iron Man on your computer?”
Tricksy boy, he knew I like fires and he was trying to lure me away from my computer.
Okay, regular posts will continue later. But, this was just too funny not to share.
This is one for the records, we got snow twice in 2 years!
Okay, for all of you who live up North and are currently under feet of snow, I know this isn’t a big deal. But for those of us down here in Texas, this is HUGE!
So huge I felt the need to videotape Batman playing in it and telling me in his very excited voice about it. I am sparing you the video of the dog running in the snow and more excited observations. But, I have grandparents that read this, and they NEED to see this.
I may be exaggerating a little.
Batman was my most eager snow participant. Princess was outside briefly, but declared it “cold, cold, cold, cold,” and that’s all I heard from her before she disappeared back indoors next to the fire.
A girl after my own heart. But, Batman provided quite the commentary for me.
This is their “soup” (top left) Really, it’s a plastic tub that they’ve been dumping rocks, dirt, random stuff in for the last year or so. Sometimes it’s poison, sometimes they are going to feed it to the birds. It all depends on the game for that day.
Batman told me it looks “yucky,” and we can’t eat it right now.
Good to know. I wasn’t planning on it.
Mac thought the snow was awesome, and he looked so cute running around in it. He did not disappear in the snow, like the dog in the story we read did. But, Mac’s not white.
Or, so I was told.
Considering how infrequent snow is here I think I was downright restrained in my picture taking.
Unlike last year or the time we had “snow.” No really if you look very VERY closely in the pictures with snow in quotations you can see snow. Honest.
