a purim medley

Feb 18
thinks starting a school morning rush with 'transform girl into monkey' is asking a bit too much of a monday morning.

Feb 14

today 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. thankfully.

Feb 13

today yc came home from school dressed as a tiger. and no signs on his back.

Feb 12

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'


 was a 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 views.
politically correct we ain't


SO 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.
So 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 praise, indeed.

Feb 4

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.


Is 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!
