|She's not asleep as she now refuses |
to nap in the stroller, just very absorbed
3. I always see all kinds of graffiti when I run along the river. Actually I see all kinds of graffiti when I run almost anywhere around town. There is one spot on the bike path that says "Rasputin Sees All" and has a couple big eyes. Sometimes I see things that make me happy or laugh though. I while back there was some tagging that said "Will you marry me?"... can you say romantic... or maybe not so much. Today I saw a couple different things. First there was a happy daisy that made me smile:
Then there was this masterpiece:
Which I have to say kind of confused me a bit. Had it said "smoke me" or "legalize me" it would have made more sense. Maybe it's an anti-smoking campaign and they want everyone to burn down their plants... I don't know.
4. I happened to be trying to get a picture of the above leaf when I noticed that I had missed two calls from Calvin's school saying that he was itching and needed to go home. Actually the exact message said, "Calvin is so itchy he can't pay attention in class. He said that he got into the insulation in your attic and that you knew about it but sent him to school anyway. Please call us as soon as you can." Yeah, so last week when the kids were supposed to be getting ready for swimming lessons they thought it would be a brilliant idea to explore our attic, the attic that has been taped closed by our landlord and is really a glorified crawl space filled with insulation and probably asbestos and mice poop. Needless to say they all came out itchy, but Calvin, the ring leader of the group, got it the worst. Well today I sent him to school in the same pants he wore last week for his "adventure" (in my defense they had been washed twice). No, I did not know he was itchy when he left for school. Luckily I was on the last mile of my run and could go right by the school where we picked him up, ran him home, showered him, changed his clothes and took him back to school... much to his dismay as he thought he'd be done for the day. Turns out all he missed was recess.
5. Even through all the back and forth between Calvin's school and the Dora jingles going on next to him, this sleepy little guy still had to be awakened when it was time to go in for good.
I sure wish I could sleep like that.
