Well then

So they're back!!  But the boys are at camp all week so they weren't around much today.  When I picked them from camp I was telling them about the Olympic events that I watched that day.  I was trying to explain white water kayaking.

Me:  The people are in a boat and they have to paddle around in really wavy water.  They have to go through gates.

Whiny Magee:  How do they do that?

Me:  Well they have a paddle and it helps them move the boat to where they want to go

WM:  hmmm

Me:  It's a boat big enough for just one person and their paddle has a paddle on each end

WM:  Oh.  Kinda like a kayak.

Me:  Well it is a kayak.  How do you even know what a kayak is????

WM:  I just do.  Mom and Dad showed me one once.

Then we were watching men's beach volleyball USA vs. Poland.  The boys were very into the game and didn't want "Polo" to win (which unfortunately they did)

WM:  Look, they have naked feet!!!

Pre-Vacation vacation

The Family had a death in the family so they had to go out of town on Wednesday.  They also are also going to Myrtle Beach tomorrow.  I was going to dog sit while they were on vacation so I offered to sit early for them since I was going to be around.

So I'm  having a pre-vacation vacation.

Sad start to a cute story, eh?

MofD:  You are staying here right?

Me:  Yes I am

MofD:  If you want to eat breakfast while you are here, you can

Me:  That's nice of you.  Thanks

MofD: And you can sleep in the living room.  There's a couch that turns into a bed in there.

Me:  Oh, is it all right if I stay upstairs in an actual bed?

MofD:  Yeah.  You can stay in Mom and Dad's room or in BabyGirl's room.

Me:  Well thank you.

who are you cheering for?

Backstory:  Mom Boss has been training for a bunch of 5Ks and I think even a half-marathon.

I was trying to explain the Olympics to the boys.  I have very intention of watching them while I'm at work, so I figured I might as well have them be excited about it too.  

This is how I explained it to them:  Once, every four years, each country picks the people who are the best at certain games.  Then, the whole world gets together and plays the games to see who is the best in the world.

Me:  Who do you think we should cheer for?

MofD:  The people that are winning?

Me:  Sure.  Anyone else?

WM:  The people from our country

Me:  Yeah

MofD:  If Mommy was trying to win the running part, I would cheer for her!

it's a tricky word

I wasn't there for this, but Mom Boss told me:

Apparently Mom Boss and BabyGirl were sitting in a chair and Master of Disaster tried to climbed in too.  While he was climbing, Master stepped on Mom Boss's downtown lady bits.

Mom Boss:  Ow!

MofD:  Oh man!  Right in the china cabinet.

Master couldn't remember the name "vagina."

china cabinet = vagina

business meeting

The Family belongs to a pool club (not sure if I've mentioned that).  The boys have been taking swim lessons for the past two weeks.  Earlier this week Whiny noticed three cars that had Florida plates.

WM: Wow there sure are a lot of people from FL here.

Me:  Maybe they are just visiting.

WM:  Maybe they live in Disney and are here for a meeting!

Me:  Or that.
