Planning Ahead...

summer '08 005


I have to admit...I was feeling a little smug. I had the new autumn background up on the blog, I had purchased the plates and paraphernalia for baked fall treats for the M's office, I was preparing to put up our fall decorations. And then I heard this coversation from the back seat of the van last night as I drove 6 of 8 and her best buddy, AT, home from the dance studio. It went a little something like this....

AT: 6, I think that after we have the cake and we open the presents, then we'll put on our swimsuits...

6: I'll wear my Hello Kitty one...

AT: Yeah, yeah, and then we'll eat the cake first and then we need to call to see if the pool is open...

6: Yes, we will need to check first...

AT: and then if it's open we can swim. That would be after the presents and cake, you know, after we eat the cake...

6: Yes, that would work. That would be really good.

AT: Okay, so it will be cake and presents and then we will swim after we call the pool and make sure it is open. Mrs. Octamom, is it okay if 6 can come to my birthday party and we'll have cake and presents and then we'll go to the pool. Is that okay? Can 6 come for sure?

Me: Why, of course, AT, that would be just fine. 6 will be there.


AT's birthday party? Uh, that would be in....March. Yep, March.

I'm not feeling so spiffy now....
