I always try to smooch Brendan's cheeks, and he will say "Ahhh no klissing me!" with a big smile on his face. Well, how can I not kliss you when you mispronounce it like that?
We went to JP's Winter Track banquet, and when he received his award, the head coach described him as being the fastest 300m runner. Afterwords, I congratulated him, and said I didn't know he was the best 300m runner on the team. He said "I'm not, but the fastest kid wasn't at the banquet, so I was the fastest there!"
On Monday, the kids asked what was for dinner when I picked them up from school (not unlike every day) and I said tacos. Xander asked "Why are we having tacos on the Feast of the Annunciation??" and I said "Because the Angel tacoed to Mary and told her she was pregnant with Jesus, and then Mary said Queso?" Only Maggie laughed.
Phil wanted to take me out for dinner and ice cream to celebrate the feast day so we fed the kids and put the little ones to bed and were getting ready to head out when Maggie asked "Where are you two going?" and I said "To do some errands" and she said "I KNOW THAT MEANS YOU'RE GOING ON A DATE!!" Busted.
I got a speeding ticket. I know, ugh. It was the first one in my life, and Andrew and Eamon were in the car with me. The cop was on a motorcycle and didn't have a laptop to look up my history and see that I've never gotten a ticket before, so he gave me one and said I could appeal it. I was upset, and drove away saying "I can't believe he gave me a ticket! I should have only gotten a warning! That place is a speed trap! The speed limit drops from 40 mph to 30 mph once you cross the city line! I can't believe he gave me a ticket!!" Andrew just looks at me and goes "Well, there are consequences in life."
I was holding Brendan and we were just playing around, when it was time to hand him off to Phil for bed time. He reached back out for me and said "Wait! You need me!". I love when kids confuse pronouns like that.
I went to a new group exercise class, and this nice older gentleman was helping me get set up with a mat and weights, knowing it was my first time at this class. He told me to get two sets of weights, 8 pounders and 5 pounders. I'm actually pretty strong (thanks ice-cream scooping and shotput throwing and baby holding muscles) so I only used the eights throughout the class. At the end of the class, he said to me with a smile "You didn't need no stinkin' fives!"
Declan was sick this weekend with a fever, and he was convinced that he got sick because of the dinner I made him on Thursday night. I honestly couldn't remember what we ate that night, so I asked him and he said "You know...the meat one in a roll...that smells like Dad when he comes home from a run?" (it was steak subs...and sorry Phil!)
