Two days ago the kids and I were driving in the car. Laura mentioned that all of the eighth-grade girls are toting around sacks of flour, pretending they're babies, and they have to care for them for a class assignment.
I asked her if the boys were doing that, and she said she hadn't seen any.
I said, "Well that's dumb, I mean, men have to care for children too. It takes two people to make a baby."
From the back, Hank piped up. "No no, the moms can make the babies but the dads have to encourage it."
I carefully and gently reached across to the passenger seat and placed my hand over Laura's mouth, and she slid down in her seat, shaking in silent laughter. I said, "Well that encouragement is very important."
Today is my birthday! It has been going just swell. Matt and I had lunch out. While I was tucking into my pineapple mojito, his conversational opener was, "Here's one way I've become a douchebag."
And then it was something about LinkedIn. But I thought, I will never stop being entertained by the people in this family and the things they think of to say.
We are getting a sitter and heading out tonight, and then next weekend, Matt got us tickets to an Australian Open Wildcard tournament here in town, the finals day. Sweet! We're so very sporty now!
I hope y'all have a good evening planned. xoxo
