Worst Mommy of the Day Award goes to me today! Collin was begging to wear shorts & a short sleeve shirt to school...I quickly checked my weather app & saw a high of 81 and agreed. Then I looked at it again when I got him and realized I was on the Pensacola weather page (from planning our trip for next week). At least I put a jacket on him!! Then...I realized it was St Patrick's Day & he is not wearing any green! Mommy fail today!!

I am ashamed at how long it has been since my last post!! First I feel like an update on Collin & Grace are overdue. Up first...Princess Grace.

I am always laughing at what comes out of Collin's mouth, and try to document what I can remember (which isn't much, haha!). However, lately Grace has been competing with her brother for the title of family clown! She understands making a joke now, and frequently says the wrong answer to a question just to be silly. She will do anything to make her brother laugh :) Today while driving home from Collin's school we were taking turns playing the "I'm Thinking of an Animal" game where one person thinks of an animal in their mind and the others take turns asking questions to guess what it is.
Grace is very smart, and fully capable of playing the game correctly, however she loves to say "YES" to anything you ask her & knows that she can answer the questions incorrectly or make up false information to be funny. Here is how her turn went:
Grace: I am thinking of an animal.
Me: Does it swim in the water?
G: No. It has a pink nose!
Collin: Does it live in the jungle?
Me: Is it a monkey?
Collin: Is it a tiger?
G: No. It has a pink nose!
Me: Does it have fur?
G: It has pink fur!
Me: I don't know any jungle animals with a pink nose and pink fur.
G: Its a pink kitty!!! (Laughing hysterically)
She cracks us up, just like her brother does :)

While driving, I overheard this conversation that was taking place in the backseat:
Collin's loves to make up games & his most recent made-up game was called "Teenager", where he pretended to be a "Teenager" by running around like a wild man, playing air guitar, singing loudly, and asked if he could "get dressed crazy". I asked him how he knew what a teenager acted like and he said it was from the "Love You Forever" book...I think he nailed it :)
After school conversation:
Collin: Mommy, I had a rough day
Me: I am sorry sweetie, what happened?
C: What does a rough day mean?
Me: It means that bad things happened to you today
C: It was a rough day
Me: What happened?
C: We didn't go to the playground today
Me: Is that all?
LOL - that's a rough day for a kindergartner!

How did I get to the point where I am taking my child school supply shopping...for elementary school?!? Wasn't it just yesterday that this was Collin James:

We were eating Shrimp Lo Mein for dinner and Collin was singing a made up song about Chinese noodles. Son asked Collin, "Do you know what you are? You are half Vietnamese."
