apparently daddy watched cat videos on youtube with the kids when i wasn’t home, and there was one of a cat twerking to the “big fat butt” song (whatever that is). so this is what i got at dinner.
7yo: i think i’ll finish my dinner and go twerk in my room.
we can walk from our neighborhood to the kids’ school. after we get off the path, there is a fenced drainage area. with all the rain, it is now completely grown over and the animals are loud as all get out.
7yo: it looks like muck, smells like yuck, and sounds like frog.
me: it’s time for bed. turn off the tv in the playroom and go get ready.
them: [all kinds of wailing and whining, then whispering and silence]
them: mama, look at us. [each slowly crawls out of playroom looking sad with their heads down ] slow, mournful song plays in the background.
me: [stifling laughter]
