So, school is on it's way out. Projects are due, presentations are being...presented. And what's the old philosophical problem? If an oral report is given at the school and there is no parent there to listen, did it really happen?
And so I go. But getting out of the house is muy dificil. Getting someone to watch Tom (very distracting in classrooms), feeding the baby, dressing everyone and keeping us all relatively barf and feces-free until we are in the car. Urine is fine, since it is clear and not germy. Did I tell you about the time my sister Jen's baby peed on the pediatrician, and when she tried to apologize, the doctor stuck his finger in it and licked it?
That's right. He licked pee.
Because he was making a point? About it being sterile? So I figure, I can wear it, if he can eat it.
Anyhow, just this week:
"Sam" made a popsicle stick model of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, complete with diorama panorama of the Sydney skyline. Those quotation marks were not an accident. In the morning I told Sam to stand next to it while I took his picture. After I snapped it, he asked "Mom, now you get your picture with it." And then Ross pronounced it "wicked awesome." Uh, oh.
Ross made a Powerpoint presentation on deep sea creatures and exploration. He also forgot to tell me about a research paper on Houdini that is due today. So we were up all night printing photos of a 90% naked man in chains and handcuffs.
Jane has her Endangered Species research to present today. Koala Bears a la 10:45.
I joined the gym again. And went to Body Flow (yogalates). My body didn't flow super well. Is a good thing the lights were low. Now I'm sore. Mostly in my feet. Which really isn't my area of concentration.
Then I ate blueberry pie for breakfast. I won't even discuss the chocolate covered cinnamon bears which I find mildly disgusting but are covered in chocolate so they got scarfed.
Oh, and all this with a newborn in tow. And his rash has all but disappeared. I changed detergents and stopped bathing him much. So now he smells less like lavender and vanilla and more like barf, but he doesn't itch so much.
