|Kale is welcoming you all in Portuguese this week because EuroCup2012 still has a hold on my television and I cheer for the team with the best looking players (Portugal, obvi.).|
If this post doesn't make sense, we're going to blame the heat, ok? Today was 40C with the humidex (that's a 104F for the Americans) and I'm pretty sure my internal temperature is about 108. Celsius. I came home and ran through Kale's sprinkler with my work clothes on. So obviously I'm drinking cold beer to cool down.
The low-down: Use our themes, use your own themes - just tell us what you're "currently" up to! This week our themes are: making, listening to, craving, writing, and laughing at. If you'd like to let us know what someone else is currently up to - your child, your partner, your grandma - we like that too!
Please remember to add your link at the bottom so we can find you, and copy and paste the button code into your post so others can find us and link up too! Also, be sure to visit the other participants and say hello!!
Making me crazy. No, really, it's like he doesn't feel the heat despite the enormous amount of sweat dripping off him. He's all 'hold me, nurse me, sleep cuddled up to me.' Dude - you're hot, I'm hot, let's keep some distance between our hot, sticky skin.
Listening to his teachers and only his teachers. This morning I went to Kale's class so the kids could help me with an end of year gift for his teachers. The Director came with me and we kicked the teachers out for a few minutes. All of the kids were wearing inflatable rings around their waists that their teachers had given them as an end of year gift. The Director asked the kids to take them off while we worked on a project and they all obliged, except Kale. I suggested he follow their lead, but he refused. I did the silent eye beg. I whispered a bribe in his ear. Nothing. Then the Director said "oh Kale, why don't you take your ring off?" and he was all, "THAT'S THE BEST IDEA EVER!!"
Craving 'ola bars. Not the healthy kind either. The chocolate covered cheap ones that Kris eats everyday with his lunch. Remember when we were all new moms and we said we wouldn't ever feed our kids processed junk? Hah!
Writing imaginary notes. We're 99% sure Kale is left handed since he holds a pen with his left hand like a pro. Where do they learn this stuff??? Kale will write a note on every scrap piece of paper, receipt, or bill he can find.
Laughing at the sprinkler. He thinks it's pretty hilarious.
Listening to CBC radio (duh). It's all I listen to (I mean, the odd time I listen to Kris talking to me - but mostly it's just the CBC). Tonight I said to Kris, "you know that "call me maybe" song? I see people tweet about and see it mentioned online and stuff and how it's played all the time - but I've never even HEARD it." I hear the girl that sings it is Canadian, which means the CBC can play it because it's Canadian content - I guess we're just not the right crowd.
Craving cold beer. Iced Americano's. Popsicles. Frozen yogurt.
Writing blog posts. Recaps of rental market reports. Meeting minutes (shoot me). Lists for camping this weekend. Thank you notes to Kale's teachers (waaaahhh).
Laughing at Kale running through the sprinkler. I mean, what's more funny than a naked two year old dashing through a sprinkler wearing an inflatable ring shaped like a turtle around his waist (photos to come).
