I’m sitting here on the couch next to P and just told him I had absolutely nothing to write about. He looked at me and helpfully uttered a “Huh”. Which I think is a sign of two things:
1. He isn’t concerned about my lack of material.
2. He doesn’t have any plans to help me come up with something.
The problem is we didn’t do much of anything yesterday. Actually, take nothing and subtract even more nothing and that sums up our day. Caroline and I stayed in our pajamas until almost noon and then Gulley dropped off Jackson while she took Will to a friend’s birthday party.
I was going to take the kids to see Cars 2 (again) but they got caught up watching Swamp People and who am I to deprive them of the experience of watching a bunch of Cajuns hunt alligators in Louisiana? If that isn’t educational, then I don’t know what is.
The rest of the afternoon was spent listening to Caroline debate whether or not she should get her ears pierced. She REALLY wants to get them pierced. We went to lunch with my sister and my niece Sarah the other day. Sarah just got her ears pierced which only heightened Caroline’s obsession with the whole thing. And, truly, I’m fine with it. I just want her to know that it’s going to hurt and she’s going to have to let them pierce BOTH ears after she does the first one.
Of course she asked Jackson for his opinion on getting her ears pierced and he said, “I don’t know why you would want to do that. Earrings are for fancy parties and going out on dates and you don’t do any of those things.”
I believe that’s the nine year old boy equivalent of looking at your wife after she tells you she has nothing to write about on her blog and saying “Huh”.
