Who can name the movie that line is from?
Jensen is still in his dinosaur phase. The much loved new television show is PBS Kids Dinosaur Train, the preferred toys are his 50 hard plastic dinosaurs (which are on the verge of becoming extinct if I step on them one more time), and the favorite live action game of choice is to chase unsuspecting children around the room, as he replicates a carnivorous variety of dinosaur.
Cailey, on the other end of the spectrum, is completely consumed with origami, and will spend hours crafting creations. She’s really very good, as can be seen in the photographic evidence below. There is a point to these stories, pinky swear.
She crafted this box to hold her earbuds, which are neatly folded. I have no idea where this child came from.
This morning Fiddledaddy took Cailey and Jensen with him to our gym, so we could employ the divide and conquer method of parenting. I was to stay home with the oldest offspring to assist in her Classical Conversation projects due next Monday.
Our gym has an excellent child care facility, and since we’ve been members for several years, the staff knows my children well. Foibles and all. I have even been known to take my children to the gym, drop them into childcare, and then go to the cafeteria and just sit. Not even sit and think. Just sit. (The staff is aware of this, and approve wholeheartedly. They have met my children.)
At this particular gym, whenever you work out upstairs, you are able to check in on your children via spyware, by viewing a monitor. Which is what Fiddledaddy did after a reasonable amount of time working out.
He then texted me:
Later when I questioned Jensen if he frightened any of the little children, he grinned and replied, “YEAH, AND I TOLD ‘EM I WAS GOING TO RIP THEIR FLESH AND EAT THE MEAT.”
After listening to these events, Emme quips, “We’re an awkward family.” Tip of the iceberg, my friend.
