School Mornings...

The scene: Me and Claire on our way to preschool this morning. We woke up late this morning, Claire and I fought over what she was going to wear, Owen ran around half naked the entire time and Mama was nauseous the whole time trying to keep down the plain waffle she had for breakfast. Good times. We quickly get in the car, I make 3 different trips inside to get the many different things we were forgetting including her coat as it was 14 degrees.

So by the time we were on the road, the car was silent except for the Brittney Spears CD playing. You see, I only get to listen to music in the car when Owen is not riding. He insists on watching "Little Giants" for the gazillionth time on the TVs in the van. Claire could care less, and she was pretty much pissed this morning anyway as she had on the dress that she DID NOT want to wear.

I am half way to school and we are listening to "Radar", I start feeling like a bad Mom (and the nausea started to subside, so I became Rachel again, rather than the Pregnant Monster). I looked back and Claire looked completely bored and zoned out as we were not talking. So I turned the music way down...

Mama: "Claire, are you ready for school today? Are you going to be good and learn your new letter today?"
Claire: "Yes Mom. Would you please turn the music back up? I am trying to learn the words to this song."

She was not zoned out she was zoning in on learning the song. Let's just hope she did not sing this all day at school...

Owen found a paint pen last week. Did you know that paint pens will not wash off? I didn't...at least not off O. Below are pics of him after the incident...sorry he is in pjs =).
Have a good week!!! Entering 6 weeks tomorrow!

Don't feel too terribly bad. You are not alone in the world of five year olds singing Britany Spears! :) Natalie got Circus for Christmas from her Mimi and has now dubbed her favorite song... MMM Papi! So as she dances down the side walk, (with her sassy litte strut) at Kindergarten she sings... "oh papi love you, oh papi love you!" using Britanys breathy voice!

Maggie said...

LOL I can vouch for Natalie's singing Britney!! ha ha We can't really listen to the CD in the car because when it's on, Nat is singing at the top of her lungs. lol

That is hilarious that she was trying to learn the words vs. zoning out. ha ha And O with the paint pen - that child is a big ol' cute mess. LOL

Hope your tummy feels better soon - that morning sickness is FOR THE BIRDS!!!!!!!!! =S

How funny is Owen with the paint??? Kinley looks like that frequently, but it's toothpaste! This morning Keira was pissy because she didn't like MY shirt. She is way to young to be doing this to me!!
