so today . . . i am soooo tired! i hate springing forward . . .
i really need sleep, and yet i also want to blog. so my solution is to write a short blog. at least that is my plan, but you never know . . . sometimes my fingers don't know when to stop!
it was hot here today--80 degrees! just a few days ago it was down into the high 60s and i was freezing, so this felt really good. i decided it was a good day to break out something just a little bit springy, so i wore a short-sleeved black dress with tiny white polka dots. i don't remember where i got this dress--i've had it a long time--but the fabric is wonderful! it is some sort of jersey knit but with enough weight that it hangs really nicely and is soooo comfortable. it is one of those dresses that feels so good when you are wearing it, it is almost like wearing pajamas all day.
anyway, this morning when kenneth came in and noticed my dress, he said, "hey, my mom has a dress just like that. except hers are pajamas. and the spots are all different colors."
uh huh . . . so the 'just like that' part would be the color black??
it is so funny how kid's minds work. last week christopher was looking at the dinosaur cards--again. he seems almost obsessed with these cards. each one has a picture of a dinosaur on the front and lots of information on the back. i've taught him how to decode the pronounciation spelling, so he can read all the names and much of the information. he sorts these cards in many different ways--by the size of the dinosaur, by the era in which it lived, by where it lived. one day he was sorting them into two groups--plant eaters and meat eaters. we were discussing how the meat eating dinosaurs were different physically from the plant eating ones, and why. then we moved into what the meat eaters ate. and then all of a sudden, michelle said, "wait a minute! we're meat!!"
i guess it is a good thing that dinosaurs are extinct . . .
