"Glad I was Listening" - Paulie's edition

We're in the car and talking about why I have different dinners than the boys (last week they wanted hotdogs for dinner and I didn't, so now they think it's an 'all the time' thing).

Me: I like chicken, vegetables and soup for dinner sometimes.

Paulie: I not like chicken.

Alex: Yes you do! I thought you liked everything!

Paulie: I like goldfish........ I like crackers.......... I like goldfish crackers........

He's creating quite the distinguished palette, huh?

It's time for another "Glad I Was Listening" segment

Yesterday Ambrose was in the bathroom talking to himself and this is what I heard:

"I'm so thirsty I could drink the Mississippi River! (mumbles--) That is.....if it really even exists."

Ahhh...Winter Break for mommy

Kids have a mid-winter break from school usually in the form of an extended weekend. I think that parents also NEED a mid-winter break (AND non-parenting adults, but especially parents). I've taken it upon myself to implement this fact (for ME at least, you'll have to come up with your own plan, sorry) and in exactly 2 hours I will be headed to a Stamping Weekend Retreat. How much stamping will actually get done?? I'm not sure, but I know 55 women will be enjoying their well deserved break doing whatever floats their boat. And who knows? Maybe next year we'll give the men a break....nah, who am I kidding--we're already planning our getaway for next year! Yippee!!
