You Sly Dog, You..


This is a picture of my little sly dog(devil), Garrin who posed so nicely for this photo this morning. This post in fact is pertaining to my other two sly dogs, Hannah and Connor though. Garrin is way cuter and so.....a photo. Just joking.


So today's big project, and those close to me can verify this, was setting up my Halloween Village. It takes me just the morning alone to unpack each item, and we aren't even talking set up yet.


All is in its spot, and tonight when dinner, soccer technical training and swimming and most homework was done, I ran out to the fabric store to get stuff for my houses. The fake grass, actually. So I am 4th in line of about 12 people to get my measly little three yards, of a gorgeous shade of dark green, felt. Of course the ones in front of me have about 17 different bolts of fabric, with various lengths needed, and one cutter. Now honestly, I don't give two craps about who is getting what frickin nightgown out of which fabric or what color the placket is going to be or seeing this lady model some sheer red tulle type of fabric as a toga - I just want my 3 yards. (Sorry, I am getting off on a tangent)


Finally I get home at 8:30. Both kids in bed with jammies. Hmm. Not right. Well lets just put it this way. When these two little sly dogs are home with Dad, they try to trick him into thinking they are ALL done with homework.......Yes, yes, they both read. What did Connor read? Frog and Toad - yep, read that in kindergarten - Hello - we are in second grade now!!!!! Let's see, studying?? Anybody study spelling words? Nope. Anybody remember the scramble last Friday in the morning in the car on the way to school - Hannah???????? Speling - oh I mean SPELLING??? And The Great American??? When was the last time we studied states and capitals - 'cause we were pretty close 2 weeks ago and now how's that memorization going?? Connor write his reading log??? No, why? Maybe Mrs. O'Brien will see FROG and TOAD on it?? Hmm......


Why is it so tempting to pull one over on Dad? Do my kids really think that I am not going to check?

p.s. What is a placket anyway?

Jerolyn said...

NEVERMIND~
A placket is an opening in a garment or the overlapping layers of fabric that cover or disguise such an opening
