too smart for his own good

Whiny Magee singing: Rain, rain, go away.  Come again another day.

Master of Disaster:  That doesn't ever work!

WM pouty: why not?

MofD:  It's just a song.

Melted crayons

I'm sure all of you have seen the melted crayon art on Pinterest.  Yesterday we made some of our very own. If you follow me on Instagram (randomlybossy) then you may have seen the "before" shots (and the "after" shot).  But here is it for your viewing pleasure.  Whiny has named his "Color Waterfall."

BabyGirl's, Master's & Whiny's

How we did it:

We (and by we, I mean I) hot glued the crayons to the top of a canvas.  I let the kids pick out what colors went where.  Actually, I did BabyGirl's.  

Then we propped them outside, leaning against the house all day.  And I do mean all day.  When we left for karate at 4ish they really hadn't melted down the canvas.  At about 4:45 Dad Boss called me to tell me that to make sure we looked at them when we got back from karate.  

Some of the crayons melted in big globs of wax but it looks really cool and the kids were really excited about them.  To be honest, I was excited too.

Master has day camp this week.  Today was his first day and he was so excited to go.  Apparently this morning he asked Mom Boss if there would be any four year old girls there.

I guess it was really important to know the truth because when he was dropped off he asked his counselor if there would be girls in his group.

The neighbors were moving and now I guess they are not.

MofD:  Hey Jess, Matalie isn't moving anymore

Me:  How do you know that?

MofD:  We saw Matalie's dad and he told us.

Me:  It's Natalie, not Matalie

MofD:  Matalie

Me:  Natalie

MofD: Matalie

Me:  Na-Na-Natalie

MofD:  It kinds sounds like "nap."  Like maybe she naps everyday and every night.

take that!

We were watching some sort of TV show that was about animals and gave us all sorts of animal facts.  I thought it was pretty interesting, the boys however got bored during the second episode.

The first episode was about legs/limbs.

MofD:  Jess, everything has legs.

Me:  Really?  Everything?

MofD:  Yep

Me:  What about fish?

MofD: hmmm, no

Me:  A snake?

MofD:  No.  I said *almost* everything.

Me:  ah, no you didn't.  You said everything.

MofD:  Well, I meant almost everything.
