Make a Wish....

Today was yet another rainy dreary day. The temperature shift wasn't all that wonderful either, seeing as I was just bragging about the summery Sunday we just had. But we made the most of it this evening with some indoor activities and some rather comical conversation. Kids really do say the darndest things. 

So as I was walking home with Miss Roxy from school, we got into the discussion of whether or not butterflies could fly in the rain. (Her class room is currently watching caterpillars change into butterflies, so it has been a very highly talked about subject around here) In any regard I didn't really know, but guessed that since I have never seen one out while it was raining the answer was probably no. She then proceeded to start the song "Rain Rain go away" but she threw me a line I didn't know existed in the song. "Rain Rain go away, Come again a never day" ....Hmmmm a never day seems like a rather awesome place to send those dreaded things to :) 

I have a high love for music and singing (as some of you already know) But it has wore off in  big way to my children- Dallas especially. Today he finally sang "twinkle twinkle little star" pretty much word for word. I will have to record the next time, as he was rather hilarious to watch. After every word he would pause and take a deep breath then belt it out like he was howling at the moon. Every few words  his glasses would slip down his nose, and he would push them up with both hands over the lenses LOL. But he has been working on singing that song for a good while, and to see that look on his face when I screamed YAY You did it!! Was something of the biggest cheese eating grin ever.  I'm pretty sure he is going to be a performer of some sort when he gets older. 

But the moment that really got a good laugh today was from Miss Ana and Stevie. (This has a little bit of irony as it fits perfectly with my new kit...either way) Both of them had picked dandelions when we had went out this afternoon. Keep in mind these are the yellow type, that have yet to dry out and become those poofy white balls of seeds. Either way, they were sitting on the couch and just blowing away, but I couldn't exactly see what it was they were blowing at, as I was in the kitchen. So I peek around the corner, and there they are blowing at the dandelions from earlier. 'What in the world are you two doing?' Ana: "We're blowing them away" Stevie: "Do you want to make a wish?" O MY.... So after a good bit of laughing, and regaining my composure- I explained that only the dried up dandelions would blow off the seeds :)
