We've been reading fairy tales around here lately. The latest is Handsome and Gretel. Oh, I mean Hansel and Gretel. No matter how many time I try to correct them, it reverts back to Handsome. It started with Cooper and Seneca quickly picked up the mistake. Even Bex calls him Handsome. Oh well, maybe he was.
Mom is doing fitness challenge and that means limited goodies in the house. They've finished off any cookies and such we had around a while ago and I haven't gotten any more so granola bars and popsicles are about as "treat" as it gets around here. One of everyone's favorites, however, is Patella. Oh, I mean nutella. we've enjoyed a little with strawberries and bananas and they think I'm the world's greatest mom. Doesn't patella mean knee cap? "mmm, mom, I love patella!"
Cooper's race suit came in the mail yesterday. Jammers on little boys legs may be my new favorite thing. And yes, of course they make him faster. edited: tonight when I was putting Cooper to bed, he said in his prayer, "and please help me swim super fast in my new black swimsuit." Then he told me that as he was swimming freestyle today, he wondered about the tempacles in the water. Tempacles? Chemicals. Another one I try to correct and it's always tempacels. Kind of a mash between tentacles and chemicals. Coop is always curious about the chemicals in pool water.
And an unrelated question of the day: we are in the market for a new vacuum. We've had a fabulous one for 11 years... aunt Mel gave it to us for our wedding and it has lasted and been great, but it's rebelling when it has to cover this much carpet. Do you have one you love? Suggestions please!
