In order to make my niece's piano recital yesterday, we had to head straight out from our 2 hour block of dance classes over to Sonic, and then hurry over to the recital. Of COURSE we got a trainee at Sonic who, no lie, after the 5th attempt at taking my order passed me off to a supervisor after a LONG, comical pause. I later got the privilege of listening to him screw up EVERY single order he took at any car anywhere near me! (I was of course missing Delaney's drink when all was said and done.)
When we got home from the recital, I reminded the kids to make sure that all of the Sonic trash was cleaned out of the car before going in the house. They quickly got distracted by various things in the yard and I wound up cleaning up instead (in the dark).
On the way home from a friend's house this morning, I hear the kids squealing about how there is still a container of Sonic milk underneath the back bench of the van. A detailed conversation then occurs about the dangers of leaving milk in the car during hot summer days . . . la, la, la.
A few minutes later I hear Josh starting to laugh and he asks Ava, "Ava, is that your GRILLED CHEESE from last night under your seat? (also the back bench of the van)"
Ava, in her very calm, serious baby voice: "Yes. I am full of it."
Another fun tidbit:
I bought Delaney some new shoes right before Easter this year, since she had just outgrown her other shoes. I was able to get a "buy one, get one free" deal, so it was 2 new pair. Also hit a Gymboree sale, so she actually had 3 new pairs of shoes. This was about one month ago.
In the meantime, I have noticed that Sadie and Delaney both suddenly have voracious appetites, and I knew that I was in trouble, we were on the cusp of yet another growth spurt. Sure enough, Sadie's little spider legs are now too long for those 6 slims I hunted down awhile ago. Mind you, her waist hasn't seemed to grow at all so now I'll be looking for 7 extra slims, I guess?? Then on Sunday I happened to notice Delaney's toes hanging off the ends of her sandals. I gasped and checked to make sure she had them buckled right. She did. [insert eyeroll]
Just got around to measuring her feet a minute ago. After triple checking, it has been discovered that her foot has grown a size and a half in the last month.
Let me just add here, that not only does that mean that she'll need new sandals, etc, but that I will have to go through her dance bag to figure out if her three different types of necessary dance shoes still fit.
I am now looking for any corporate sponsors who'd like to help me continue to outfit these children of mine who refuse to stop eating or growing!
And on that note, I'll finish off with the great news that Ryan just accepted a new job at AMD, and will start June 1. He is still out in CA trying to get things packed up at the old office (as well as our apartment) and might have it all finished up by next weekend. We won't know what to do when he's actually here at our house all the time!
