Monday Night's Mixed Metaphors

MG: Mommy, I can't go to sleep because I am afraid of the thunder!
Mommy: Yes you can, the thunder is more afraid of you than you are of it.

I guess I'm tired, because that didn't make any sense at all. And she must be tired, too, because she bought it.

It's storming here. Did you know it's actually a bit risky to give your kids a bath (or take one yourself) during a thunder storm? Yeah. The water and the metal pipes are conductive. People actually get hurt/killed this way each year. So, we took a quick bath and put the kids to bed. They're actually quiet, now, which is shocking (*rim shot*).

I haven't got anything else tonight. This hormonal stuff is bullshit. I need to either get knocked up or get back on the Mirena like yesterday. I can't do this again next month. Yuck.

Speaking of knocked up, have I told you that my bonus sister, Jill, is expecting? Yep, there's going to be a pretty boy baby in the family this fall. She and Brian got married right after Claire was born... MG was their flower girl. I am very excited to be an aunt again.

We've got a birthday party at the gym for one of MG's good friends tomorrow afternoon, so there will be pictures. I got her a really cute leotard for her gymnastics classes at Target today during the middle of the storm. We were trapped there, wandering, for a while because it was too rainy and lightningy to attempt to leave. Of all the places to be trapped, Target is one of my favorites.

I can't step into Target w/o spending 50 bucks.

Speaking of the gym... We are going to a fun fair at a local gym here in Grammaland on Friday. Derek was so enthralled with your gym when we came to visit, he told me he wants to take classes. I enrolled him in Jazz Dance classes last year and he wouldn't participate bc he was the only boy. The major plus of this gym is they have a boys only class for kiddos his age. So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed he likes it. Because I am sure I don't have to preach the benefits of gymnastics to you.
