thinks starting a school morning rush with 'transform girl into monkey' is asking a bit too much of a monday morning.
the only strange thing was Y going to school wearing a lawrence of
arabia white headdress for yom hakovah. nothing esle strange to re[port.
today yc came home from school dressed as a tiger. and no signs on his back.
So i was talking to yc tonight before bed, about what to put in his mishlch manos for his friendies.
He said 'and dumdalmatian'. i said (understandably, i think) 'what?'
He repeated it, and i remembered that i had been reading the 101
dalmatians to M, so i said 'a dalmatian? you can;t eat a dalmatian'. he
said 'oh. what is a dalmatian'. i told him it's a dog, and asked what he
thought it was.
'i thought it was a kind of cat food'
little surprised today to pass a boy riding a unicycle while pushing a
buggy. to be honest, i'd have been surprised even if he wasn;t pushing a
buggy. either he is extremely good at the unicycle, or his mother is
extremely trusting. Or doesn;t know.
Totally astounded to pick yc up from schol
today to find him dressed in yellow as a chinaman, with chinese
moustache and slanty eyes drawn on in black, and a sign on his back
saying 'asher bachar banu mikol hoamim'. here are hte front and back
politically correct we ain't
also this week, Y & M both - separately - have a kind of bazaar at
school where they can make a stall, on their own or with friends, and
sell things they made or bought or sell crafts or creations etc.
M has decided that she is doing it on her own (because she does not
want to have to share the money), and having looked through my recipe
books she is going to make chocolate covered caramelised salted popcorn.
Y is making it with friends. they were going to sell comics that they
write themselves, but then he decided that people might not be willing
to pay for them. so he said 'Well, Mummy, we may as well sell your choc
chip cookies, since people do seem to like them'. damning with faint
thinking about a theme to cook for purim seudah this year. maybe i should just take a cookbook and count 127 recipes
and cook wahtever is the 127th one? i just suggested this to ben and he
said it rather depends on what the 127th recipe is. i said that all
depends on whether you believe that yad Hashem is guiding me or whether
it is all chance.
loving adar here! So far the loud party with thumping music drifting
down from up the hill is to celebrate rosh chodesh adar; as we were
making havdalah, the neighbours came in wearing purim costumes and
dancing in a conga line singing misheenichnas adar; M & Yc both have
ot wear kachol v'lavan tomorrow (why?); and Y is happy that for hte
next 2 weeks he does not have one normal day of school!
