Seven Minutes in Heaven

 
Sofia Madyson had "Open School" from 4-6pm today to make Carnival masks. My friend took her so I could vacuum my house and take out the trash. When I got there, I found Sofia hard at work, gluestick in hand. Her friend saw me and said, "Jodi, you are really sweet." I said, "What?" She repeated it. I smiled adoringly at her, thinking what does she want...

I sat down next to Sofia and we glued glitter on our masks and rolled colored tissue paper into teeny tiny balls. Sofia looked at me and said, "Wow Mommy, you are really good at rolling balls!" I kissed her...one of the finest compliments I've ever received in my life:-)Then, all of the sudden, Sofia Madyson dropped the "F" bomb when I made a tissue ball too big. I almost passed out. Good thing the little Italian children don't know the "F" bomb. She saw me turn white and immediately said, "Oh sorry, Mommy," then she burst out laughing.

My house is a disaster, I'm constantly at war for work and personal life...every single day Jordan comes home from school dying to find the Wii game he ordered from Ebay that NEVER FREAKIN' COMES, so he complains, moans and bitches driving me up a freakin' wall....although...and this is a big although...he learned the introduction to "Smoke on the Water" on his electric guitar today and that was H*O*T!

I want to go back to second grade, roll tissue balls and play Barbies - No Ken Doll Allowed...the Barbie Convertible a must.

Simply have to post this...Thomas is really trying to say the word "truck" and he can't get the "tr" part down quite well. So, it comes out as "f-uck"...one has to laugh at these little things and hope that the kids don't say it during the middle of the grocery line!

The SOTW theme is the only thing my husband knows how to play on the piano -- and he really puts some funk into it. You should put a video of Jordan playing it on the blog -- I'd love to see it!
