Even though we end up listening to the Duck games on the radio Rocky and Daisy try to support Puddles by doing the touch-down push-ups with him. Since Oregon is doing so well this year it is pretty great exercise. They are obviously much cooler when done with vampire teeth. The teeth came from a birthday party treat bag which, as we all know, is the best part of a birthday party. The girls were amazed at the teeth. I guess they had never seen them before and were blown away when they figured out what they were. They both were wearing them nonstop for a couple of days. It was a pain for obvious reasons, but was also kind of a bonus Brandon and me because it was the first time we were able to have a conversation without being interrupted. That is not to say that my little chatterboxes stopped talking, just that it was too muffled to understand and much easier to ignore.
Rocky spent quite a while working on this portrait of Matt's family. She really got into the details, asking me to find out what the cats looked like. I'm not sure why she was so concerned because the cats obviously aren't pink and purple. I also thought it was odd that the cats were the only thing colored. When I was looking at it more closely I asked her what the dots were on Kristin and she used her most patronizing voice to say, "They are the boobs Mom. Well, I mean, not the boobs, but you know, the nipples."
I didn't ask about Matt but I'm hoping that I was correct in assuming that he was wearing a tie.
I started to tell her that you can't really get away with drawing boobs in kindergarten but then I remembered that real artists need to have a command on the human body. I'd better not start censoring her just when she is making so much progress.
I probably should warn her though before she has another awkward moment at school. She is still trying to live down the day that she came home and said, "Did you know that at school the kids don't take off their shirts when they eat spaghetti?" That was a lesson she'll never forget.

Rosy has been helping me with the laundry quite a bit. For those of you who don't get to see her regularly, this is one of the reasons it is hard to convince anyone that she isn't truly a baby dragon.
There is no reason that I won't just turn on the heat except that I am a weirdo.
Rosy likes to watch Brandon out the window when he is doing pull-ups.
And now we can end on a high note because seriously, what could be more fun?
