Things that Go BUMP in my Mind

Knitting, stitching, reading, gardening, cooking--I have no time for any of it.

Tuesday, August 09, 2005

Things I have learned recently.

(1) 3/4 of a canister of baby powder is enough to thoroughly coat one five-year-old, one two-year-old, and the entire upstairs of our house.

(2) Butterflies of all kinds love Mexican sunflowers. Love. Them. Will dive bomb you if you get too close, because they think you're stealing the nectar, or something.

(2a) Your average five-year-old (based on a sample of two) cannot be depended upon to be impressed by this fact.

(2b) Your average neighbor (based on a sample of one) can.

(3) When the upstairs bathroom floods, water leaks through the fan in the downstairs bathroom.

(3a) Your average two-year-old (based on a sample of one) likes to celebrate pooping on the potty by flooding the upstairs bathroom.

(4) Alpaca & silk=yummy and soft.

(5) The amount of food a child will consume in between playing in the tubes at Chik-Fil-A is inversely proportional to the number of other children present in the tubes.

(6) The amount of time a mother gets to spend knitting while at Chik-Fil-A is directly proportional to the number of other children present in the tubes.

Fascinating, yes?

And now, dear readers, I am off to the mythical land of "vacation." See you in a couple of weeks.
