Last week we were sitting at the table for dinner. As we were chatting about our day, Mick shocked us when he stated, "I have a girlfriend." Scott and I almost choked on our peas as we stifled our giggles and masked our shock.
You see in nine months at his preschool, Mick has never once mentioned a single girl. To hear him talk about it, he attends an all boys preschool that encompasses nothing more than playing Lego's and Superheros.
So we asked him, "Who is your girlfriend?"
"Olivia." This was of very little help; there are about six Olivia's at his school and I know none of them.
"How did you get to be boyfriend and girlfriend?
"She told me I was her boyfriend; so I am." With this comment, we really did choke on our peas as we couldn't hold back our laughter any more. Mick is four years old and he already has women figured out, simply do everything the we ladies say. Way to go Mick or should I say Lil' Casanova.
Preschool romance aside, life here is the regular routine. We thankfully haven't had another sewer backup. Apparently, the house saves that behavior for when company arrives. Most days you can find me driving a constant loop around the town delivering kids to and fro various activities. There is Girls on the Run, Indian Princesses, Girl Scouts, Swim Lessons, Tae Kwon Do and the many activities at the two schools. Just in case, we make sure to enjoy a few birthday parties and play dates so there is never a moment when the Big Marshmallow (our White Minivan) isn't taxiing around. Just like your home, our school year only has four weeks left and most of the activities will come to an end as well. I'm not sure who is more excited, the kids or me? As for Scott, May is also a month of constant taxiing though he is doing it from a crammed seat on an airplane for work travel.
That is life in MomZania.
