Yesterday when walking Boog to the bus stop there was an accident down the street. It appears as though one car was backing out of their driveway when another slammed into them. Boog says, "It's gonna be tough for them to find cheap auto insurance. They better call Allstate." Pretty sure he got that from TV.
We went to the zoo yesterday and the peacocks have escaped. One met us in the parking lot just as we got out of the car. The looks on the kids faces when they saw it was priceless. The peacock continued to roam and greet new arrivals. We then were playing on a (rope) spider web and as the kids jokingly yelled "help" so did something on the roof above. My SIL and I were both trying to figure it out. The kids would stop and so would the noise. When the kids started up again so did the "thing". I swear it sounded just like a bird mocking their pleas for help. On further inspection we saw another peacock, On the roof of a concessions building. I must admit I didn't know they talked or flew. I've only seen them with both feet firmly on the ground. Yet another was on the top of a fence. It was really quite odd.
Wednesday Puddin Pop got her vaccinations followed by a trip to Target to spend money from Grandma and Grandpa. When we got home she just wanted to play with her new Littlest Pet shop Pals. We did that for hours and then she started feeling the affects of the shots and just wanted to snuggle. After about 30 minutes I explained that I had to get ready for work. She asked me if I had to go. I explained that I did. When I came down ready to leave this is our conversation...
PP: I'm sorry you have to go to work Mommy.
Me: Me too baby.
PP: Maybe you could go in and ask your boss if you can be fired.
Me: Ask to be fired? What should I do if he says No?
PP: Maybe you could give him some money.
Me: How much money should I pay to be fired?
PP: Ummm. Maybe 3 Dollars.
Me: You think I should give Mr. Mike $3 and ask to be fired?
PP: Just do it.
Then she leaned over...kissed me on the cheek...and says "Good Luck."
When she awoke yesterday the first thing she asked "Did it work?"
No baby. In fact Mommy was there 2 hours longer than expected:(
