If you are 'lucky' enough to live where we do, then you get to live through many interesting weather related events. In the summer time, among other things, there are EHW's- or Excessive Heat Warnings. This means don't go out, it's too stinkin' hot & humid. Children get creative. Notice Grayce, for instance. She is modeling her OSU cheerleading skirt, paired with Hello Kitty tights, this with black tap shoes- no ties. She has this matched with a white wool Stroud cheerleading sweater- all over her orange Gymboree off shoulder shirt and floral shorts (if you could see those, of course.) AND, in between that she has on a black long sleeve gymnastics leotard. (Is anyone getting the irony in this?) She wore this to clean her room.
And above, I just want you to see what, too, could happen to your bathroom, if your children stayed inside all day, long, long- did I say long?
Sometimes, for a break from cleaning her room, Grayce would come out and tap dance in the kitchen. She was killing time anyway. See...that's a whole other issue, sort of. Well, I have time I guess. We are, were waiting for 2 reasons. 1.) Waiting for the sun to go down so we could go outside to play a bit. You know, like we're bats or opossums or something. 2.) We were also waiting for her brother to finish cleaning his room. This is a whole other post. I have probably even posted that post before. HE is the WORST room cleaner in the FREE WORLD. She is half is age and can out clean him in 8 seconds flat. Really, she can. Unless- oh no! What's this??
*Gasp!* It seems ( in true Gone with the Wind fashion), Grayce has momentarily taken a little spell. Whew! Those EHW's can be tough! Quick, someone tell Rhett to bring the smellin' salts and a fan!! ( Yah-I bet she still beats her brother, anyhow.)
