Just more of the same strangeness

Being the mother of a six year old girl and a two and a half year old boy, my days are full of strangeness.  Take for instance, this morning.  We like to listen to talk radio as we drive in the mornings.  This morning was no different.  As we were traveling, we heard the news story of a 300 lb chimpanzee that had escaped a home and was wandering around a neighborhood causing all kinds of mischief.  The newscaster stated that at one point, the chimpanzee opened a lady's car door (I assume the woman was still in the car) and put its hand on the seat. At that point, Scarlett asked me, "If a chimpanzee ever crawled in our car, what would you do?"  I told her I had no idea.  Then she said, "Well, what if we were in the driveway at the Git N Go to buy Bug Juice (a kids' drink), and it got in the car?"
I replied, "Then I guess that chimp better have its own money, 'cause I am NOT buying it any Bug Juice."
Strangely, this seemed to satisfy her.
Yesterday morning, I was left to my own devices on getting both kids, a dog and myself ready for the day (Hubby was away on a business trip).  I honestly have no idea how you single parents do this every day! I am simply in awe of you folks. Anyway,  I was trying my best to get the littler kid up.  Jackson is usually my Mr. Sunshine morning, noon and night.  But not yesterday - he was all out of sorts and grumpy.  He cried when I pulled his pj bottoms off. He cried when I put his jeans on.  He LOST IT when I tried to take off his Thomas the Train pj top.  So I did what every other harried parent would do.  I left him in it.  The child wore his pj top to daycare.  I know I am not the first mama to do this, and I am sure I will not be the last! Thing is, he looked adorable in it. He was happy.  I was happy.
Days like these always make me smile and wonder: What's next? Stay tuned...
