BUTTER TIME! U Can’t Touch This!

My girls love butter, so when we use butter in cooking, we give each of them a small slice to eat. While making Mac n’ Cheese tonight, Kathleen and Lucy came out to remind me to call them out for “butter time.” I responded “BUTTER TIME?!?” and then did my best impersonation of an MC Hammer dance move. Kathleen and Lucy responded by laughing their heads off, which, notably, is the appropriate reaction to me imitating MC Hammer’s dance moves.

I, however, assured them that I was not just crazy. Mommy, I told them, would know what I was doing. So we all marched to the living room, where Jennifer was seated on the couch petting Clyde, our cat. I announced that our girls thought that I was silly, but mommy would prove them wrong. We told her that she needed to do the appropriate dance when I said “BUTTER TIME!” Jennifer, however, responded, “Sorry, I have a purring cat on me.”

The next minute was constituted by Kathleen and Lucy imitating my imitation of MC Hammer while laughing their heads off. The next five minutes was constituted by my dancing like a fool any time Kathleen or Lucy said “BUTTER TIME!”

I am now exhausted, but at least butter time is over.

Matchmaker, Matchmaker ….

On the way home from school today I was informed that, Kathleen (6yo) has decided that she likes boys (this was news to me). She asked me to help her figure out who to marry. Here is what we came up with:

Philip is kinda mean, so that is a no.

Oliver has a cast on his arm, which apparently rules him out.

Ricky threw up today, which is a deal breaker.

Tristan doesn’t always listen to the teacher, so no. (I am particularly happy with this reasoning!)

Micah is smaller than Kathleen, that puts him out of contention.

Eric goes to the safe-seat every day, this eliminates him.

Mustafa is a new kid is class, so no.

Logan has brown, kinda long hair, and brown eyes. So he is in the running.

Graham said that he likes Kathleen, which makes him a contender.

No doubt we will be sending out invitations just as soon as Kathleen is able to narrow it down to one.
