We dyed some eggs today... all we need to do is add the stickers, and the kids will call this the best day ever! After the trip to the museum and the mall, of course. This is Jessie "not touching" the eggs while they dry in the bathroom area. I probably don't need to say that the whole process would have been easier with a kitchen and/or table on which to work...
Some highlights of my week:
I found Jessie's shirt and was putting it back on her after the three youngest kids had a shirtless steel cage death match while I hung laundry on the line. I was feeling pretty unappreciated, but when I started putting it on her, she looked up at me and said, "Thanks, momma. Help me. Thanks." I almost cried. It made my morning. She also still loves to give me snot kisses, which I find both adorable and gross at the same time.
We have a lot of cattle around these parts, and it's calf season. We drove past a herd and I mentioned that "I love cows! Especially the calves! They are so cute!" Ed retorts, "Ya, they are. I just want to hug them, and squeeze them, and give them big cow kisses!" I immediately had a flashback to a cartoon I used to watch ("Animaniacs?") with Elmira (I think) who scared all living animals with a phrase very similar phrase.
Kacy and Will had a true childhood moment in the car today playing the "Name Game." They rhymed "heart." And then giggled hysterically when it got to a certain word. I pretended I couldn't hear them, which is really easy to do, as they think I can't hear them in the car to begin with. I decided not to interfere for fear of making the word even more scandalous to say if it is banned.
