I had quite an OK weekend. How about you?
I didn’t run because I was feeling a bit under the weather so I ended up spending a lot of te weekend indoors with Rose. It was marvelous and just what the Dr ordered. Yesterday I had lunch with my parents and ended up staying there all afternoon until we came home last night to get ready for school today.
I did manage to organise a summer uniform and some necessary (extra) stationery for Child1.
Must say that there is a MASSIVE difference in traffic when it’s school holiday. I’m thinking that we should introduce a system where kids can fly to school rather than have their parents drive them? Would make life so much easier for those commuting on the roads. What do you think?
This morning Child1 walked into the bathroom while I was busy putting on my face. So we had this conversation:
Child1: “Mommy, I think my voice is PUBER-TATING.”
Me: (trying not to look shocked) “Puber-tating? is it sore?”
Child1: “No, not actually”
Me: “Could it not be a post-nasal drip that is making you croak? I also croak when I get up in the mornings. And Daddy. I am sure that if we listen carefully then we’ll also hear your brother croaking when he wakes up”
Child1: “No, Mommy, I think my voice is PUBER-TATING”
Me: “I see. Should I get you something for it? Maybe some Halls?”
Child1: “You could get me some smarties.”
ME: “OK. I’ll get some later on.”
Child1: gets distracted by something else and walks away.
I just LOVE this word “puber-tating”. I told them in the office about the conversation and they laughed and laughed and laughed.
I was reading this post that Marcia wrote last week and I saw in the comments that one of the readers used the word “frivoulosity”
I LOVE it!
Have you or your kids come up with any made-up words lately? Do share?
Btw…I DID get him the smarties that he asked for. And this evening he is still croaking. There are no other symptoms so I am not sure if this is really pubertation or if it could be a case of laryngitis? And Marcia, I bought some gel pens too! Can’t wait to see if 0.7 is THE ONE.
