We’re doing a science experiment. K and F measured vinegar and gently placed an egg in a tub that obviously had to be their favorite colors. Tomorrow we’ll see that the egg no longer has a shell, which I think is pretty awesome. It’ll be a surprise to the little scientists, a disappointing one I think. When asked what they thought was going to happen Francine guessed that it would change into a flower and Keta thought it would change colors. Look girls no shell! That’s pretty cool mama, can we go clean our closet now? We’ll see. Just lots of “itsy bitsy bubbles” so far.
I just overheard from the other room, “I’ll show you where your butt crack is.” I was immediately and simultaneously able to picture this anatomy lesson, choose to pretend I didn’t hear it and hope that soon I’ll be able to totally repress the memory. The mind is a brilliant and complex thing. The adult mind anyway, the kiddo mind is still working on issues like the exact location of butt cracks. And now I’ve officially talked about butt cracks and used the term more than any other time in my life. Kids. Awesome.
We just got Keta’s “kingarn” school pics back. She was thrilled and so proud and Francine commented that Keta looked “pretty as a butterfly!” I think they’re hilarious and priceless, the fake pose and exaggerated smile, the hideous background. So perfect! Keta is wearing bantu knots and a pretty dress that she looks gorgeous in but couldn’t clash more with the background. There’s a whitish smear on her face that I suspect is dried snot. We are going to laugh so hard at this photo some day. I love it!
