I just have to share this conversation from two nights ago, it involved me, Molly, and Tim.
Molly: Mom, watcha cookin?
Me: Chicken Pot Pie...
Molly walks around the corner and says: Tim! We are having Chicken 'Pop' Pie! Do you know what the chicken pops are? It's a disease that you get all over your body and it itches so much you just want to die! I love chicken pop pie! YAY!
Now keep in mind when they had the chicken "pops" they all had pretty light cases. None of them had been vaccinated so they had natural cases and the spent about three days swimming in my big jacuzzi tub with oatmeal bath. Molly was the one that begged to have them again! LOL! I cooked all their favorite foods, they all got a special toy, and they all had them two weeks apart so the sick one got all of the attention. Isn't it funny how kids think? I thought it was so funny that she described it that way. LOL! Silly kids.
On to yet another subject, I'm leaving town! Whoo hoo! We are leaving for the beach tomorrow! This time we will be spending the week with Ben's parents and all of his brothers and sisters, which means my sis will be there too (my little sis married his little brother). Remember Ben is the oldest of 12 children, and three of those children are married, so this means a house FULL of fun! The kids are so excited, they have been packing their "most important" toys for the trip for the last two days. The word on the street is we will have high speed Internet there -OK not really on the street, but you know what I mean- so I may not be around blog land much while I'm there, but if the rumor is true I want to try to post a picture everyday. Guess we will see when we get there! I think that getting away for a few days will help me so much, I'm ready to have some fun and cut loose. There is always lots of "cutting loose" when you are with this group of kids (each of my children have an aunt or uncle the same age as them- yes, this means I was pregnant with my Mother in law three times). I can already see many many volley ball tournaments in my near future, hopefully some late night poker (no money involved though), lots of good old fashioned junk food, and DIET SUNKIST....*singing* ahhhhhhhhhhh!......It will be perfect!
