Of the rodentary nature, that is. (I'm just gonna call that a word, ok?)In my hysterical ramblings, though, I may have overdone it. I was just emoting, y'all! But the other day I was telling a friend (who also reads this blog) how freaked out I was and she was all, "Yeah--you made that pretty clear!" I feel I may have given Australia a bad name. Sorry about that, Australia. You're pretty awesome. In spite of your rats, deadly spiders, and soul-crushing summer heat. We're still friends!
So I'll move on to other topics for now. But know that I am still vigilant! And that the fight goes on.
School starts back this week and Ava will begin Year 1. I can't believe that I have a first grader on my hands! Nate will go to preschool two days a week now, so that means that Thursdays and Fridays, Gracie and I will be flying solo. This week, I need to make sure Ava's school uniform still fits her and that she has everything she needs.
Speaking of uniforms (or clothing), I spent my time this week (when I wasn't standing on chairs in fear of rats) cleaning out the kids' closets to make way for the Christmas/America avalanche of clothing. In Ava's drawers, I found a pair of Mossimo capri jeans that she'd never worn. The tags were still on them. She is not big on jeans, and just never really wanted to wear them. I noticed that the tag described them as "Mid-Rise". This disturbs me. Does this imply that Mossimo is making "Low-Rise" jeans for 6 year olds? Of course, I don't know if they are. But if they're not, why differentiate, know what I mean?
Anyway, in a world of differing opinions and political hot button issues, I feel certain that we can all agree that this is a bad idea. In fact, low rise jeans are currently a bad idea for me, too. In my day-to-day life, I am forever sitting on the floor and bending over and if I wore low rise? Let's just get real: no one needs to see that.
It's Sunday night, which as I've told you, means that Jason and I are brain-fried. So I'm off to put kids to bed and watch a few pointless dvd's. Have a great day, wherever you are!
--Update: During bedtime stories, Nate informed me that Jesus has "lemon powers". I guess this means he disinfects? Or adds a certain zestiness to seafood or iced tea? Who knew? The things you learn from 4 year olds.
