Preschool

image

The kids had a blast at their 1st day of preschool walked in like a champ took off without a goodbye. Had to hunt them down to give them a kiss goodbye.
Went to pick them up and when I finally got micahs attention and told him we had to go now he said “aw man!!!” But when I told him ge can come back tomorrow he was OK with that. 🙂
I asked trin what she learned today and she told me “I learned the letter l is for lion and the letter c is for turtle” trin I don’t think that’s right. “No I promise” lol she tells me “the letter c was next to the turtle.” But trin that doesn’t mean turtle starts with c. She’s thinking “hmm…CA CA cake…cake… hmm” She’s also very excited cause she was “the only good listener…well and the other kids but not all of them” she also got to be @ the front if the line “the teacher told everyone to line up behind me!!!”
The teacher said they both did GREAT for their 1st day. I’m so glad they are enjoying themselves.

P.S. we found out last night trin has a loose tooth. Micah is almost more excited about it then trin. He’s yelling “the tooth fairy’s coming!!!! She’s gonna bring sissy a present!!!! I have a loose tooth too!!” He doesn’t like the idea that he has at least 2 more yrs till he gets a loose tooth. Lol

Motherhood

MOTHERHOOD
I carried you in my womb for nine months… felt sick for months with nausea, then watched my feet swell (and even disappear), my skin stretch and tear; i struggled to climb stairs, and got breathless quick; i suffered many sleepless nights. Then went through pain to bring you into this world.
Then, I became your nurse, your chef, your maid, your chauffeur, your biggest fan, your teacher, your helper, your prayer warrior, and your BEST FRIEND. I struggled for you, cried over you, hoped the best for you, and PRAYED for you.
*stolen and slightly modified.

I think I need to frame this and hang it in my kids room as not only a reminder to them but also a reminder to myself of what the 2nd half reminds me to be.

kids cartoons

so today while watching The little Mermaid with my kids and remembered singing along to every single song and one moment with my dad popped into my head. One day while singing along to Les Poissons (one of my favorites) I remembered my dad saying “you shouldnt copy everything you hear. You dont know what he’s saying” to which I replied “its a kids cartoon it cant be bad”.

So I looked the lyrics up and translated them via google. I ❤ google by the way. so heres what it said.

Les poissons, les poissons=fish

Ah, mais oui, ca c’est=which my guess is it meas Ah , yes , it is

toujours delish=Always delish

Zut alors=shucks!

Quel domage=what a pity

all sounds good right? yeah not bad until we get to this Sacrebleu!=damn or a multitude of other profanities. whoops guess disneys been tricking kids into cursing for many years. Sacrebleu is said in The Aristocats, The little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Waytago Disney shame on you.
