Three Small Things

1. This old subway ad I saw at the Transit Museum today cracks me up not because it is hilarious in and of itself but because of how long it took me to realize that a. there probably wasn’t a cat who got a medal for giving up his seat on the subway and b. that “Etti-Cat” is a play on “etiquette.” And wordplay is supposedly one of my hobbies . . . . (Also, I dig the parenthetical reminder/suggestion to not be so lazy and turn your daily commute into a workout.)

2. I heard that song that I was trying to find out about several weeks ago. It was “Arms” by Christina Perri. I knew I’d heard her voice before . . . .

3. Quick! Tell me about the best part of your week. My week has left me with lots of blank spaces where I have no idea what happened. You’d be doing me a solid to fill in the gaps with your funniest/happiest/proudest moments.

Thanks and have a lovely weekend.

    I had a really good week. On Tuesday, the rain canceled soccer practice so I was able to leave the 11 year old home to watch the kids as I ran the errands I didn’t get to on Monday. On Thursday, I thought rain would cancel the game and practice scheduled, but didn’t. So when I woke up from a very good nap, I managed with great patience and finesse to get one child to practice, feed some dinner, drop off another child at their game, pick up the first, feed the rest dinner and return to the game.
    Oh, and DH had a quiet week so was able to go with me to a dr appointment for a child and to go to the dentist to figure out what we owe them. Two things that had I done alone would of required me to give details to husband, but now I don’t because he was there.

    Wow. You have a busy schedule! I guess more children = more events and such. I feel accomplished if I’m able to schedule laundry and bread-making in the same day. 🙂 Way to go Sam!

  2. Lots of good things happened with the fam this week, but we had a fun little moment with The Babe. We were running errands yesterday and at one place noticed she was rather cranky. It was nap time but there were too many distractions and she was decidedly staying awake. We asked the nice lady we were with if we could pacify our daughter with a mini candy bar from her jar. Initially it was fantastic. She held onto it, shook it, and was content to just look at it. Inevitably it found it’s way to her mouth- as most everything does- which was fine. Until I noticed it getting mooshier and squishier. She would suck on it and then hold it out to me so I could have a taste. Two offers later I realized that a hole had indeed formed and she was enjoying chocolate for the first time in her life. Rats! That day came just a little too early!

    Haha! I have a friend who has no qualms about giving her fairly young children chocolate simply because of how happy it makes them. We always have to be careful with Squish because even if there is just one chocolate chip somewhere in a cookie, it will somehow wind up smeared all over his hands and face. It seems like the chocolate multiplies when it gets into his hands.

  3. No wonder she was offering to share! I’m sure she was thinking “wow! This is amazing! Mom, you’ve got to try it!”. Not exactly a proud parenting moment. 🙂

    Sorry that got broken up into two comments.

  4. I may have had the best week ever. My son’s EEG came back clear, and he does not, in fact, have a seizure disorder. He also is up to taking 4 steps in a row. I got a final interview for my dream job. Generally, things are good!

    Oh, that is good news! I am glad that things seem to be going well with your son and hope you get the job! Congrats!
