Crazy Hair Day

Standard

Going through the papers from kindergarten, I came across a note saying crazy hair day was coming up. ¬†Having a boy, I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal. ¬†Apparently he thought otherwise. ¬†I guess they talked about examples of what one could do for crazy hair day and different colors came up. ¬†A certain kindergartner in our house took this to heart as a must. ¬†I, on the other hand, don’t just own hair color. ¬†Grandma to the rescue!

The other one couldn’t be left out. ¬†I tried to lift chunks of hair and put it underneath so it wasn’t so obvious. ¬†It turned out more of a moldy look than anything but he was happy.

And more importantly, my fingers were green until well into the afternoon even though I wash about every half hour at work.

Oldies but Goodies

As I was getting a picture off the camera for something else I realized there were some from quite a while ago… oops.

So as promised, better late than never… here are some Christmas pictures that were stuck in the camera.

XXII Olympics!

The Winter Olympics are in full swing. ¬†That means this household will be watching lots and lots of curling… along with those other sports they show.

I love watching the opening ceremony and I especially love the sappy Olympic commercials they play.

They have talked the Olympics up during the past week at the tall one’s school. ¬†He kept talking about how it was starting soon and he was very excited. ¬†They even did a flag ceremony in the gym. ¬†Everyone got to wave little flags. ¬†I think someone got to carry a big one but the story was hard to follow.

He knew what day they would start and even that he had to wait until 7. ¬†All afternoon he kept asking what time it was. ¬†He would look at the clock and loudly read the numbers. ¬†Even though he knows his numbers, he would still ask if it was time yet. ¬†When it finally turned 7pm, he couldn’t wait. ¬†I turned the channel and on came snowboarding. ¬†He looked over and me and asked what that was. ¬†I said it was snowboarding. ¬†He looked mad, “I wanted Olympics!” ¬†Apparently he didn’t actually know what that meant. ¬†We talked it up and showed him the really cool jumps and twists. ¬†Then he thought it was sort of okay but wasn’t exactly sold.

Poor kid. ¬†Hopefully he’ll appreciate curling as much as his dad.
