Things that make you go "Huh?"

I walked by a homeless guy the other day who was sitting on the sidewalk with his hand out saying in a very loud voice "Change!!"

I still don't know if he was:

a) asking me for money,

b) imploring the weather gods to stop the rain, or

c) wanting me to re-examine my life.

Grey hair number 506 & 507

The boy child is at it again. I am not even 40 and my hair is turning greyer by the day.

Scene #1:

I poke my head into the bathroom (which I am in earshot of at all times) and see the kid playing in the tub with his little bath toys. So sweet.

I poke my head into the bathroom two seconds later and the kid is now in the bathtub with two plants and a tub full of dirt/soil.


Scene #2:

We are busying ourselves for the grand 4-year-old birthday party extravaganza. Suddenly, we notice boy child is missing and/or very quiet. This is never a good sign.

L goes to find him only to discover him and the poor, beleagured cat in the back closet covered in pink paint. Let me just say, I was locked in the bathroom for 20 minutes with said cat trying to remove the paint from his fur. Not a pretty picture.

Heavy sigh.
