Micah's 1st day of school

When I picked him up he said, "I can't wait to go again tomorrow!"  He told me about getting cards pulled if you are bad.  They had a party with punch and cupcakes and Micah had a punch mustache.

Industrial sized Soft Soap

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

Last night my grandpa was over for dinner. The usual chaos was going on. I was trying to entertain my grandpa and was letting Ben wander. Ben is 14 months and he is a very curious baby, like most his age. He was gone for just a few minutes and came back into the living room with some unknown substance on his hands. I walked to the back of the house and found, in my bathroom, a pretty big mess. I then notice our industrial size bottle of softsoap from Costco laying on its side, just about empty, on my bathroom carpet. I used a cup to scoop as much of the soap up as I could and then I got out the wet/dry vac. I had to add a little water to get the soap out. Do you know how much suds started shooting out of the vacuum? I didn't take a picture even though the camera was sitting on the counter right by me, I think I was too shocked to function at anthing other than cleaning up the mess.

Orange Slices and Ants

August 2006

Jacob wanted some candy from Papa Louie's candy dish and Nana Paula offered it to him. They were all the same, individually wrapped orange slices. Jacob was taking a long time picking one out, which puzzled Nana, being that they were all the same. Nana said, "Jacob, what's wrong? Why are you taking so long?" or something to that effect. Jacob replied, "Oh, I'm just trying to find one without ants." Nana didn't have her glasses on so she didn't see that a bunch of ants had gotten into the candy! Jacob was very calm when he answered Nana, like nothing was out of the ordinary, he just preferred a piece without ants in it!
