I'm starving for lunch, but I just had to share a few things!
First of all, Lily Pad Cards is turning one year old on Sunday. Can you believe it? Where has the time gone?
Nothing like kids and blogs to make you realize how old you're getting!
The fun will commence at Lily Pad Cards at 9:00 a.m., EST, on Sunday, April 1, 2012!
There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. To be eligible, you need to Like us on our new Facebook page. If you would like to better your chances, you can leave comments on the blogs participating in this hop (including the Lily Pad). For each comment, you get your name entered again (but only one comment per blog, please).
We have a terrific line-up, so be sure to stop by!!!
Now onto the Gigi portion of our program!
She had two memorable moments yesterday. The first was in the car. I had just picked her up from school, and the little stinker was pestering me to take her to Steak'n'Shake for a 50% off shake. (Just what she needs - more sugar-induced energy.) But yours truly was feeling the effects of three nights with less than four hours sleep each, so the request was denied on grounds of sheer exhaustion.
Gigi: Well, will you play with me then?
Me: Play with you? Play what?
Me: Doctor? [As I am not a little boy looking to further my knowledge of female anatomy, I am, of course, taken by surprise.] And just what would that entail?
Gigi: You come to my office, and I poke you with a stick!
Me: WHAT?! [Now I'm concerned. What's this about poking people with a stick? Who's been poking my child with a stick? What kind of a stick? Is this a euphemism?!] When did any doctor ever poke you with a stick?
Gigi: [rolling eyes] That one guy, remember? He opened my mouth and stuck a stick in there - I about threeeeew UP, Mom!
Me: [Oh, for the love of Mike....] That was a togue depressor, you nut! He was trying to see if you had strep throat!
Gigi: So he had to look all the way into my stomach?
Later, she was playing the Wii - a very fierce running race - and I hear her screaming, "Get out of the way, you stupid person!"
Me: Gigi! Let's not be rude. It's not okay to yell at people and call them stupid.
Gigi: I know. I'm sorry. [And she really is - she's very sweet that way.]
A few minutes later...
Gigi: Excuse me, George - gotta get by! ... Excuse me, Peter - love that hat, by the way! ... Excuse me, Annie, I'm runnin' to WIN! Pardon me, Mary Kate, but I need to be in front of you!... Little Old Lady, can you please move over some?...
And it went on like that for the rest of the game.
She's such a nut!
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
