An overview of the night in 4 parts...

Wow, long time no blog. I'll just say that I'm surprised at how little time I get to think and compose my thoughts with the current age spread of the kids - let alone type them! But I have some thoughts to share. They are random and in no particular order:

1. Sour Cream is a super food. Not in that it's super good for you, but it seems to have both limitless uses and the superpower of making everything it touches better. Salsa too hot? Just add sour cream. Need a dip for those strawberries - sugar and sour cream! Does the sauteed chicken in the pan look waaaayyyy to healthy and boring? Yep, you guessed it, sour cream to the rescue! Just thought I'd share my new favorite fridge item.

2. A conversation between my 7 year old red head and hubby:

Hubby: So, I hear you have some questions about marriage?
Red Head: Yeah, it's just that... well, you'd better sit down.

Thus progressed a G rated version of the birds and the bees. The first of many of these conversations, I'm sure.

3. Me and the red head:

Me: I don't know which Barbie your sister claimed, do you care if you get Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty?

RH: Oh no. I mean, I prefer Cinderella, but I don't really like the story.

Me: You don't like the story of Cinderella?

RH: (wistfully) No. It's just so heartbreaking if your in a romantic stage.

Me: But she gets the prince at the end... it's a happy ending...

RH: But that middle part'll just get ya!

4. The two year old, not to be outdone by her older sister's romantic streak followed her daddy to the door tonight when the 14 year old was selling candy so he could go snowboarding (or something to that affect... after school program or some such thing). She stood there during the entire transaction, shirtless, and covered in Cheetos and then after the door shut ran to my arms, her entire face turned upside down in a famous Mystery Family pout, tears filling her enormous grey eyes... and said... "the boy didn't talk to me!"

Me: What?

Her: I wanted him to talk to me!

Me: I'm sorry honey, I didn't know that.

Her: I was trying to get to him!

Me: Let's talk about trying to get to strange men...


Stay tuned for more updates as I'm able to access the keyboard without little monkeys diving over my shoulders to get to Neopets.

Sour cream...actually, I'm kind of over my sour cream and salsa phase now.

This is the beauty of sour cream. If you're over mixing it with salsa - try mixing it with spaghetti sauce... or sugar... or coffee - the possibilities are endless!
