Pretty cool!

I wrote this way back in December about having time off for the Christmas Holiday.  I thought it fit the bill nicely about the prompt of being cool.  Enjoy!  

Blog Gems - Air  Your Archives #18 is being hosted by Varda over at The Squashed Bologna while Jen over at The King and Eye tends to family.  

So my little Alex has been home one day and he's already trying to get us on a routine and dominating the computer.  His go to things right now are Lego's and (brace yourself) the computer.  Given a choice between the two, the computer wins hands down.  For whatever reason he's mastering the game Farm Frenzy.  I think its because it has to do with making money and he's interested in maximizing his returns on investments.  You know, like buying a cow and then maxing out how much milk it can produce so he can have a greater earning potential.  His words, not mine...

I've intentionally NOT put things on a routine so he can have more experience winging it.  He's doing better than I thought.   Normally, first thing in the morning he has to put on school clothes and get the day started.

Today we got up and I asked, " You still in PJ's?"

"Yup!  Mom, today's not a school day.  I do not need to put on school clothes right away. Duuhhh."

"I know.  How cool is that?"

"Pretty cool.  I don't need to put on regular clothes right away until January 4, 2011.  That's when school the new year."

"Ahh.  That's cool, huh?"


Now I have to tell you it took almost 3 weeks for him to figure out the the phrase "pretty cool" had nothing to do with the weather or atmospheric conditions.  The first time I used it he replied it was most certainly not "pretty cool" and it was indeed quite hot.  That was last July.

I always think some of the best parts of other people's blogs are the pictures.  So I leave you with an image from this past July. 

Way prettier than looking at snow, right?

And how cool is that?!?

Comments make me all squishy but remember to be nice. If you're not nice then what you said goes *poof.* There's your warning.
