It's Sunday and I thought it would be really fun to start reflecting upon what I learn every week and post it. Although there is no way to remember everything that I learn, here is a start!
1. I learned that there is nothing like a sunset over the ocean.
2. I learned that my kids LOVE old school cereal. I bought a box of Count Chocula and it lasted two days! I usually don't buy sugary cereal (yes, I am the mean mom who makes them eat oatmeal or Cheerios for breakfast) but I found Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and Booberry at the store. I ate these as a kid and wanted the boys to try them, in honor of nostalgia. :-)
3. I learned that I can take the planted Freesia from the office and plant it in my garden at home. I don't have a green thumb so this was HUGE for me... maybe I won't kill it since it's already growing!
4. I learned that my mother really does know everything. I was asking her what some Italian kitchen gadgets were used for and she knew them all! We're not even Italian. Weird.
5. I learned how to crochet, well, kinda. I am learning to crochet. I bought a book with some easy patterns for hats and blankets. Wish me luck!
6. I learned that I want another puppy. I don't know that we can have one at this time; Kenya is getting old and I'm not sure how she would handle a puppy. That doesn't stop me from wanting one though!
Look at this lil' angel!
7. I learned that my best friend, my heterosexual soul mate, is having a BOY! Jacob Lewis will be joining us at the end of February. Yay!
8. I learned that times have not changed all that much after all. We went to the boys' high school football games and the students behave just like we used to behave! The football players get 'pumped up' in the same ways, the band plays the same songs, and the cheerleaders chant the same songs! It was so cute; am I allowed to say that?
9. I learned that my son has a girlfriend... an older girlfriend. Yuck. He's in the seventh grade and she's in eighth grade. I tried to tell him that he could get her pregnant by French kissing but his dad stopped me. Damn it!
10. I learned that I can move mountains.
