~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~Y'all, I am so excited. Super excited. SUPER-DE-DUPER excited! You know how when you're a teenager or even in your twenties (yes, I'm that old. Old, tell you), you imagine that you and your friends will just keep doing wacky spur-of-the moment stuff? And then you have kids and you kinda stop doing wacky spur-of-the-moment stuff despite your self?
Well this weekend the dweej and her cohort Meg are throwing off the shackles of reason! Embracing the frustrations of pack-and-plays! Sending emails re: tomatillos and how many are needed for the perfect salsa! Because she's loading up her kids and driving here from Chicago for no reason. And staying with us for the whole weekend. And will be here TOMORROW.
Spur-of-the-moment, I welcome thee.
So instead of blogging, I should be "getting stuff ready" (I won't say I'm cleaning because then she'll be all "Don't clean on account of me! Keep your house a disaster. It'll make me feel better" and then I'll have to be all "No way. Your kids aren't used to living in a toxic waste disposal facility and may become ill if I don't tend to this disaster" and then she'll be all...well, you can see where this is going.). And I will be" getting stuff ready" as soon as I share this decoy picture:
Look, all 5 of my kids in the same photo. I think it's the very first one ever! And you're diggin' that we have such an awesome party tent in our front yard, right? Anyway, decoy photo so that you wouldn't see a preview of the REAL photo, which is this...
Holy mackerel! Most gigantic zucchini ever! Child is smart to be so suspicious. Also, she still has enormous big toes. Because I know you were wondering.
