Today is laundry day and after camping, there is a LOT!  So first there is a lot of camping clothes to sort into their piles.  And then asking the kids to come sort their laundry.  And again asking the kids to come sort their laundry.  Get the first load going.  Ask the kids again for their laundry telling them to come sort it or it isn't getting washed today.  Walk away.

Finally I get the last wash started, and everything is even folded and taken care of from all of the other loads.  Yes!  As I'm putting the laundry stuff away, I notice a hat that didn't get washed.  Woops, guess I'll just put it in my hamper and get it next time.

Hey, look at that in my room.  My hamper, full of clothes.  That didn't get washed.

While talking to my almost 4 year old niece, we're discussing what happens at different ages. 

Me, "What happens when you turn 4?"

My niece, "I get my ears pierced!"

Me, "What happens when you turn 5?"

My niece, "I get to go to school!"

Me, "What happens when you turn 8?"

My niece, "You get OLD!"

That's my girl

Gotta hand it to my daughter, she's pretty smart.  While driving home, she wants to start poking her brother but knows she won't get away with it.  Hmmm.  What to do?  Smart girl that she is, she grabs her cell phone, turns on one of my favorite songs, puts it on my shoulder nearest her so I hear the music instead of her, waits till I'm happily singing away, and then proceeds to poke her brother with confidence.

Hate to admit it, but it's funny so I will.  :)

Yesterday we're driving home and I'm in the middle of a HUGE yawn with my mouth wide open when I notice something white moving very quickly towards my mouth.  Can't close my mouth, can't close my eyes, and then it's gone!  I'm choosing to believe that the wind from the open windows swept it away from me very quickly at the last moment.
