Random Thoughts

Those of you who do not know me may be surprised to learn that I am a bit of a grammar fanatic. Not only do I strive to use proper grammar and use words properly, I try to make sure the kids do as well. I'm telling you that so I can tell you this...

At my former job we made iced tea every morning for customers. The brewing pot was labeled so we didn't accidentally put coffee in that pot, etc etc. The label said "Ice Tea" which So insane that one day I whipped out a sharpie and put a "d" on the word ice. Geo, my darling sweet jerky husband loves to tease me about it. Gabriel overheard me saying that the proper way to say it IS indeed Iced Tea because the tea is on ice, hence the "iced" part. That was easily a month or two ago.

We were at a gas station last weekend grabbing a drink on our way to a birthday party and Geo being the goof ball he is said "Oh hey babe, do you want some ICE tea??" Gabriel looked at him and said "Dad, it's ICED tea, not ice tea. That doesn't even make any sense. The tea isn't made of ice"

Thata boy Gabe!

Gabe is obsessed with writing the date on his papers. He loves to write it numerically, making a point to say "DASH" when he writes a dash. Last night I had to work, so daddy helped him with his homework. I checked it over when I came home and saw that he had written the said "14 September" and September was in incredibly small print. Also since there is another Gabe in his class, he now has to write "W" after his name.

SarahAnne is convinced that Jax is part black bear. The longer he lives in our house, the more convinced *I* am of this fact. He is constantly on his hind legs batting at things. He's always climbing into things and getting into trouble and he makes weird little noises (Not quite like a bear, but still weird)


Because we have two black cats now, we have started referring to them as "big" and "little" I have the mentality of a 14 year old boy when it comes to of those being the fact that Bitsy refers to Boni as "big boner" all of the time *snicker* No one said this was a highbrow blog people, I don't know why this would come as a surprise to anyone that it amuses me that she calls him that...


Alright...enough of this chatter-it's time to get Gabe up for school and get our day started :) Have a lovely hump day *snicker snicker*

I'm so glad I am not the only pseudo-grown up who giggles at the words boner and hump. We also think it is pretty hilarious when we call our timid, neutered male cat a pussie.

Sad, really.

Your comment made me giggle this morning Marie :) It's not sad, it just means we're in touch with our inner child...or something like that LOL
