7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
Vacationing with kids has all of the charm that you might expect... and some of the inconveniences, too... but I was for sure charmed by the presence of a bucket full of "Wasserschnecken" (water snails) on our deck... trying desperately to escape.
Check out this sweet ice making bowl... their only problem? It should be square. Freezers aren't round... and neither should any device for holding food in the fridge or freezer... I've stood by this for years... inefficiency be gone. LOL.
This week I've been enjoying some alone time with Clancy... before the kids are on "Summer Break" with us for 3 weeks. A nice transition week between family vacation and being back "on" for kids' activities for 45 hours per week. So, I vowed to nap (and I did!) and watch some guilt-free TV (and I did!). I watched Remember the Titans this week and got to reflect on how well trained I've been by the football camp of my in-laws. You see, I married into an amazing family... and very quickly signed up for a crash course in football. Specifically: college football. More Specifically: Notre Dame Football. I giggled to myself as the coach on the opposing team in the movie called for a penalty against the quarterback. "WHAT??" I thought to myself. And smiled big as the ref replied with, "Are you kidding me, Coach??" That's right. The last time I watched this my name wasn't Couch. And I had no idea how ridiculous that request for a penalty actually was. LOL. And now I know!
In the world of mothering, sometimes childhood songs just pop in my head... Here's a doozy for you... Aunt Laurie, do you remember singing this in the van with hand motions??? What a crazy song... LOL. Goon?!? I honestly looked it up to see if the world remembered it exactly like I did... which is crazy. Little Bunny Foo Foo. How ridiculous! And silly. And fun. Thanks for loving us, Aunt Laurie! Car rides with you were always fun. (Especially when we pretended to be on a rollercoaster ride sitting with Rob's walker in front of us.) :)
