This past weekend, or was it Monday? It was Monday. This past Monday, people came over.
At one point, I got to mentioning to someone how at the time, back in the 90s, I told my husband that when the kids grew up, we should get a Miata!!!
You know, since we were not able to have anymore children , and we were so darn young. I was the ripe old age of 39 when our daughter went off to college. What then??!!??!
How cute would it be to go zipping around in a cute automobile, the 2 of us, on a date night??!!?
Well, he looked at me like...OOooOOkay.
Since then, we have been blessed with 3 more children.
The Miata is no longer an option, and I will be the super duper riped old age of 58+ when our youngest is ready for college.
There is no way I am driving around in a Miata then!
Yeah, like that wouldn't look pathetic.
Anyway, so we won't get a Miata.
Instead, we get conversations like this one tonight:
(The girls have been begging for a bath for weeks. Showers are the ritual around here. Since we try to squeeze every minute out of a day sometimes, showers are the way to go.
Anyway, since John & Samuel went skeet shooting tonight, and I was busy but it ended around 8:30ish or so, I figured it would be ok for the girls to go to bed a little later tonight. Bath night was not a bad idea and they were deliriously delighted.
I walked in on them singing about something. I knelt down to start washing their hair.)
Elly: Mommy, this shampoo over here just does NOT smell good at all.
Me: Why are you smelling shampoos, Goofy Girl?
Elly: Just because, but I dont' like the smell of it.
Then, I happen to notice their eyes, which were a bit red.
Me: Did you guys use that shampoo??!!??!?
Both of them: ***crickets***
Looking at Elly, who has a perfection complex: Els, did you use that shampoo?
She looked at me straight in the eyes and said: Yes. Yes we did. And it smells terrible.
Me: Well, that is probably true since it is the dogs' shampoo.
Yes. welcome to my world.
I had used the last of Christian's shampoo on her, last week and now I had the perfect empty bottle to make new shampoo for the dogs.
Which has vinegar in it.
Hence the red eyes. :P
Thankfully, the dogs' shampoo is all natural. Including the vinegar. So it was not dangerous.
Not great for human hair. Or eyes.
Who needs a Miata, when you have little girls who cried from laughing at themsleves, because now they think maybe they will be barking up at storm, but not to worry though...fleas & ticks will stay away for at least 10 days.
They were still laughing when they were brushing their teeth.
And gave kisses.
And when they turned out the lights.
Yes, I rewashed their hair with good shampoo.
And chuckled myself through the rest of the evening.
Seriously. Not trading moments like that for the world. Or a Miata.
