hmmm awesome or inappropriate?

Today Master wanted to play Nerf guns, so I got the guns down (I keep them up high so it can be my choice to play with them or not) and we shot with "sticky bullets" in the play room.  Then we start stalking around the house to find "Bad Guys."  Which for some reason I never got to shoot.  My bullets never hit them but Master's always did. At least according to Master.  So finally I started to shoot right behind him every time he "reloaded" his gun.

Me:  Wow that was lucky.  There was a bad guys right behind you but I got him.

MofD:  I didn't even see him!

Then we continued to look for Bad Guys and shoot them.  At this point Master was double fisting guns.

Me:  Why are these guys Bad?

MofD:  something something blah blah...and lava comes out their noses!

Me:  Oh yikes!

I have to admit it was pretty fun.

And I may or may not have taught Master to say "lock & load" when your gun is ready to shoot.

I never would have guessed

I'm upstairs changing BabyGirl when Master comes upstairs to tell me something.  And now I forget what he had to tell me, but I know it was nothing too important.

After he tells me what he needed to tell me:

Master:  Hey Jess, I'm up here.  "here" meaning upstairs  Did you know that?

Me:  No.  I never would have known that

Master:  Why wouldn't have known that?

Me:  I just wouldn't have until you told me, thanks.

I can read too!

We went to the zoo the other day and on the way we had this conversation.

Whiny Magee:  Hey look there's a sign right there that says "Zoo."  It says we should go that way.

Me:  Good job reading that sign.

Master of Disaster:  I can read too.  "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."  See, I just read that.

Me:  Well I don't think you actually read that anywhere, but good job.


Also I highly recommend you give 4 and 6 year olds chicken wings to eat.  It's pretty hysterical!

Me:  Hey, Whiny, pick up your room and then come downstairs.  It's nap time but Whiny doesn't sleep he has "quiet time"

WM:  Ok

Me:   Wow you have a lot to clean  up my friend

WM:  What friend??

Me:  You.  You're my friend.

WM: Oh

Today a leprechaun gave me socks this morning to wear.  They have green and black stripes with shamrocks on them.  Master was excited about this.

So when I woke him up from nap today he said "you're *still* wearing those socks!?"

help me remember

Me:  Master, you going to tell all your friends about what you did last week?

Master of Disaster:  What did I do?

Me:  What?!  Where did you go last week?

Master of Disaster: I don't remember, tell me

Me:  Well, I went to NYC but where did you go?

MofD: ummmmmm Boston?

Me:  You didn't go to Boston, crazy!  Where'd you go?

Finally he remember that he went to Florida

Me: So you gonna tell them about it

MofD:  Nope, I want it to be a secret

Me:  ummm no, you should tell them if they ask about it

MofD:  What if they don't ask?

Me:  They will

MofD:  But what if they don't

Me:  I'm pretty sure they missed you and they will ask about Disney

MofD: What if they don't

Me:  Well if they don't ask then you don't have to tell them

MofD:  What if they have been to Florida and they know all about it

Me:  Like I said, if they don't ask about it you don't have to tell them.

So we talked about Disney the whole way to school so he could remember things to tell them, but when he got out of the car his teacher asked where he went  he looked at me and said:

MofD:  Help me remember

give me a break!

Ok guys, "my family" is on vacation this week.  Fortunately that means so am I.  Unfortunately that means that nothing funny is happening for me to write about.

Although I will tell you that Whiny loves NYC and was jealous that I got to go and he was only going to Disney. So we decided to send each other post cards and that would make the world right again.  If only all problems were that easy to solve.
