I just want you to know that even though we are on summer break....and even though it was a holiday weekend...we are still all about the learning over here at the House Revised. We've covered a variety of topics lately.
While we were shopping this weekend, Sweetheart started asking me when she was going to get her own cell phone. I told her if it was up to me, she wouldn't have a cell phone until she had a driver's license and she would have much better luck asking her dad as he is more likely to buy her one sooner. (I mean, the child is always with me!)
Then on the way home, she said, "Mom, can you tell me the story of when you got your first phone when you were little?"
"Sure! I was 28 and pregnant with you and Daddy and I shared a phone."
Her face was hilarious. I had to inform her that cell phones had not been invented when I was little.
We had a little lesson on how, if you cannot find the dustpan, it is indeed NOT OK to sweep the pile behind the trash can.
It's the little things you think you don't have to say.
I realized I had failed to buy one ingredient for my casserole I was making yesterday for our fourth of July meal. Sweetheart wanted to run to the store with me.
Me: Little Bit, Sissy and I are going to run to Kroger and get a zucchini. If Dad comes in from mowing, tell him where we are, OK?
Now, pretend I'm Dad....what are you going to say?
Little Bit: That you went to the store to buy a bikini.
Rhyming words. Done.
I know I should be sharing our Fourth of July pictures today, but I guess that can wait for tomorrow.
Also HOW is it already July???
