Something strange is happening .... something almost paranormal....
Well I guess I didn't notice it right away ... or maybe it just laid dormant for a while because it wasn't the right season.... the winter time tends to mask so much more than we realize. But as soon as the snow began to melt and the temperatures rose a few degrees it began to show itself. In subtle ways at first of course.
When lunch time ended and the little girlies were bedded down on the couch with blankies and stuffies for "quiet time" (my favourite time of the day) the boys prepared to go outside to play. "STAY AWAY FROM THE WATER!" I reminded them using my "I'm serious" tone of voice. "Okay Mom" they shouted as they ran off to play.
All afternoon I had that spine tingling feeling. My "Mommy senses" were telling me something (Spiderman's got nothing on me - *spidey sense*)
Now for the paranormal phenomenon..... this same scenario played itself out at least five more times that week! Five times! They just kept doing it over and over again. With the same responses.... "So and so told me to", "So and so did it first." they couldn't even fake sorrow over being disobedient... it just wouldn't come. They were just blank - no remorse, no guilt - but I thought I saw a determination in their eyes.... to get back out there! It was as if they just couldn't wait to be released from the "bedroom of doom" to go back out to the water again - they just HAD TO get to the water again........ It was creepy and bizzare watching them go out doors..... they would start off way far away from the water. playing with a soccer ball or something. Then very subtly inch themselves over toward the water, while casually looking over their shoulders toward the house to see if I was watching. I was.... but I was far enough away from the window that they couldn't see me :)
Then one by one they would disappear into the pine trees with a smile on their faces and then they were gone.
I don't think we need to call the Ghostbusters just yet - maybe a few days of sunshine and warmer temperatures to dry things up might be just what the situation calls for :)
Here's a few funnies from Our House to Yours
* "Mommy come quick - There's a Chicklet out of the cage!" screamed Little Susan. (we keep our baby chicks in the garage under heat lamps until they're big enough to move outdoors - one escaped :)
*"There's Tim Hortons!" Shouted Latoya excitedly as we watched the new DVD 'Insanitized'. "That's TIM HAWKINS not Tim Hortons" I laughingly reminded her.
*Little Susan and Latoya were crawling on the living room floor. Little Susan informs me ... "Mommy we're being doggies like Brucey, Ruff, Ruff. We're talking with each udders look Mommy - we're scooting our bums on the carpet like Brucey cause we're doggies! Scoot, scoot, scoot!"
*Little Susan watched Grandma Windsor putting recipies into her book with interest and then exclaimed "Gramma, you like to sort!"
*Latoya has informed me that "SOME" is the Spanish word for "a couple" ... "Like, Can I have SOME cookies" Hahaha
*Little Susan and Latoya were looking out the bedroom window discussing birds. Latoya said "I know Robins, they have a red tummy, like a bra, and black on their backs."
*Little Susan wonders if we have a "male" man or a "female"man who delivers our mail?
*Shane asked "Daddy, is a Jeepie S (GPS) only for a Jeep?"
Here's a little funny from Grandma's Attic
*Justin had good dreams about the “Harrow Farrow” (Harrow fair)
*I brought Justin to show him Nancy’s house. It’s our secret. I might be moving there. On the way down the road he said he thought I should stay at the apartment. I asked if he thought it was too far away for Grandma to move? He agreed so I said “Well, let’s go look, then you tell me what you think.” After a full inspection upstairs, downstairs, basement, yard, and garage, he said “This is a nice house and there’s gonna be enough room for all our toys Grandma.”
* Rick was concerned about Justin playing with a toy of his with string or a chain on it and explained “You can’t play with this you will get knots in it.” Justin quickly expelled “I don’t even know how to make knots!”
*Justin was trying to explain why he could not eat his lunch using his very vivid imagination. He said his stomach was like a movie theatre and all the seats were full. His mother said “That’s fine, but now it’s intermission time and the seats are empty…now eat!”
