I'm not a super fan of Valentines Day. I don't hate it, it's just not in my top 100 days. I went to work at 4 a.m. because I work at Kneaders and I guess Valentines day means make of pig of your loved one with baked goods. It was fine but a 9 hr day. Dave brought the kids in to eat but I only could say hi for a minute since the more I take a break the longer I have to stay there.
To my lovely surprise when I got home my whole house was clean. Dave put the kids to work in payment for the food he just bought them. Maybe, I do like Valentines after all.............
It's been a long week and many hours were spent on our YW fundraiser. It's a good experience but only because I love the ladies I get to work with. I like cooking but 900 oreo truffles is outside the realm of fun.
Sam wanted to do his school fundraiser and I HATE fundraisers so I told him I would help him 0%. He did it anyway and really what was I thinking? That kid needs no help from parents to charm others into shelling out dollar bills. The first two hours he sold all 60 candy bars. I just got told that he should be in the gifted dual immersion program. Is is bad that I don't think I will put him in it? I just want him to be able to be little and enjoy school being easy for a while before it's time to grow up and things get harder.
Life is fairly boring around here minus the laughs we get out of these kids. I can go for boring for a while. I just was looking at some pics of my kids when they were little so I'm doing a throwback with photos.
Logan: says he's black all the time and wishes he was black because he's determined he would then be qualified to be in the NBA. He sings non stop and is certain he sings well so he's no where near shy about it. He is still heavy in basketball and starting to lose interest in soccer. Sadly I think he wants to trade up to football. That stresses me out and I don't really know the rules to football ugh...time to learn. He is doing well in school but I get the sneaking suspicion he drives the teachers crazy. You already have to be crazy to teach Jr. High so I guess it doesn't matter. This pic is as black as this white boy is gonna get.
Neve drew this in preschool. It's a keeper!
